its a metal bar that you use gloves and loops (basically bits of material in the shape of an O) to attach yourself to the bar and you practice things like giants and long kips and swings etc. you can't do releases or pirouettes with them though

Instead of gloves you can also use a pvc pipe around the bar.
The strap bar allows the gymnasts to not have to worry about peeling off while they are learning new skill.

its basicly a high bar like the boys use made of metal that has usually a pipe over the bar and you strap your self to it so you can't let go when you learn things like giants.

Here is a photo of one with leather straps to hold you on. The ones I have seen use this elastic type strap to hold you on.
