Simple Knot Tying Technique is a Game Changer For Anyone Who Ever Used a Ratchet Strap

There is definitely an art to being able to properly secure a load. At the end of the day, people get paid a lot of money to do this sort of thing and the good ones can definitely set themselves apart from the pack. With something like this, it can come with a bit of a learning curve. Sometimes, though, a simple trick can really end up going an incredibly long way.

In this particular video, we get a look at a tip that many have probably never thought of, including myself… However, for anyone who has ever used a ratchet strap or plans to use one in the future, this is definitely some good information to absorb.

Naturally, after strapping something down, the strap in question is probably going to have a little bit of the tail of the excess strap. If you’re anything like me, you probably have gone through a bunch of creative ways to try and secure this loose end. Perhaps it involves tying knots and stuffing the flailing material under the load. However, there’s a much easier way to make sure that this loose end doesn’t end up flying free and maybe even getting stuck under a tire where it snaps your strap entirely.

Following along with the clip below, we get a short but incredibly helpful video that really gives us the bottom line on what to do with the straps. Sure, lots of these units will come with built-in velcro to help tie things up. However, with a method like this, it really seems like a simple yet handy way of making sure that that tail doesn’t end up going anywhere that it shouldn’t. In fact, we might even argue that doing something like this will hold a little bit more tightly than velcro ever could.
