    Demonstrative Adjectives

    Could the following sentence use either demonstrative adjective these or those? Does the adjective depend on where the speaker is in relation to the strap?

    Example: These straps next to you hold you tight.
    Example: Those straps next to you hold you tight.

    "These" is used for things closer to the speaker.
    "Those" is used for things farther away.
