So if your Bazooka Tube weighs in at 20 pounds (I have no idea how heavy they really are), the straps need to hold at least a 200 pound load (actually 100 each if there are 2).
OT RANT: This is why the Space Station is so expensive: everything needs to be built to survive (among other things) a 42g (!) load from Shuttle Launch. Worse still, almost everything needs to survive 2 launches and 1 re-entry in case we have to return hardware to Earth and repair it. For example, a 30 pound shroud will be built with enough straps and velcro to secure it as if it weighed over 1200 pounds on Earth.
