The mode of hafting of convex scrapers is demonstrated with an example from 2000-year old levels at Boomplaas Cave which illustrates side mounting rather than end mounting used for other artefact types. The relationship between the occurrence of scrapers and the practice of making leather clothing is considered in terms of a functional model to explain inter-industrial variability in the Later Stone Age.
