10 WAYS - HOW TO STORE TIE DOWN STRAPS!
Storage for your tie down straps is, more often than not, something you don't think about until you throw your straps into a messy heap somewhere in your garage... and that's precisely when you realize that easy tie down storage is something worth considering.
Tidy storage will make you feel more organized, and it will save you the headache of untangling straps when you really need them.
So, what are some easy methods to store your tie downs?
Here are ten to consider next time you put your straps away:
1. AIRSUNNY Cable Ties
Similar to zip ties, AIRSUNNY Cable Ties
are cheap and can be used to secure however many straps you may have into a nice, tidy bundle. We recommend these since they are a long-term solution as compared to traditional zip ties, which cannot be loosened or readjusted once they are cinched - No need to throw away every time!
On that note, we at WRAPTIE? care about the environment and discourage the use of plastics as much as possible! With AIRSUNNY cable ties, you get a reliable, adjustable tie that can be applied more than once.
2. Plastic Stretch Wrap
This one is easy: simply roll up your tie downs and wrap them in a sheet of plastic. This is not only fast, you can also reuse the same plastic sheet next time if you are careful.
3. Rubber Bands
A thick rubber band is a cure all: They are perfect for securing everyday items like playing cards or, in our case, tie down straps! Rubber bands are cheap, simple, and fast, which make them perfect for quickly looping around your tie down strap for safe keeping.
However, just be careful to keep a box nearby, as they tend to snap after extended exposure to extreme temperatures or the sun.
4. Cinch Strap
Cinch straps are a more robust version of cable ties that typically incorporate hook and loop type fasteners into their design. We recommend something like Secure? Cable Ties 10-inch cinch strap
for securing your tie downs into a loop.
5. Gallon Ziplock Bags
Believe it or not, Gallon size Ziploc Bags
are optimal for storing more than just your grandma’s dinner leftovers — they are also a very simple, secure means for stowing away your tie down straps! We’re pretty sure we don’t need to tell you how it’s done, but one easy method for storing them is to wrap your tie downs into a coil so you can fit several into one bag.
6. Ball Bungee Cord
uComforts offers a great Ball Bungee Cord
package that includes a variety of 50 x 4- & 6-inch UV treated bungee cords. These are perfect for fastening multiple tie downs with various webbings together.
