According to https://patents.google.com/patent/US3421951

The first patent for steel strapping was applied for in 1966.



This can not be true.
I help my dad apply steel strapping in the mid to late 50's.
Dad was a car inspector/repairman for the CGW in Randolph, MN at the time.
They had all the strapping, clips and tools required.
