    Ah ha... good tip! My straps are stored in a plastic bin, generally tangled up, even though I roll em up neatly when I put em away. I’ll give this method a try for sure.

    Another ratchet strap trick: Putting lawn tractor tire back on rim using ratchet strap - YouTube

    I first used it on my wheel barrow, and also on my lawn tractor. Both had slow leaks. It works like a champ. I felt like McGyver

    Very Helpful Ratchet Strap Trick

    Great video, what is the best method of securing the tail of the strap once you have tightened the strap, in order to stop the tail end from flopping around?

    I usually used 2 half hitches to tie the tail.
