I can think of about twenty times I wish I had after seeing this little trick but that was before they were as prolific as they are now.
As it is, I have been carrying ratchet straps around in all of my own personal rigs for years now.
Those things are just handier than shit.
I have even used them as an emergency Come Along before to pull a heavy load up into the back of my Caballero.
One freaking inch at a time.
I used a couple for an emergency tow rope too one time.
I wasn’t going very far and it worked just fine after I tied two together and wrapped the strap around the frames and used the hooks as a cinch.
Every once in a while you will find a set of six or so on sale somewhere in a little plastic carrying rack. Harbor Freight and the Big Box stores are usually a good place for that.
The rack lasts about five minutes and they wind up tossed behind the seat in a big wad but I don’t care about that. I actually have two I just throw behind the seat but I also threw a bag together with a bunch of crap in it for emergencies and rolled a couple more up and used electrical tape wrapped around them to keep them nice and tidy.
I like to have at least two handy at all times.
