Using Ratchet Straps During a Move
Moving can be a stressful time and rightfully so. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding almost everything, but one thing that should not be uncertain is the safety of your valuable items during transportation. One way to reduce the amount of stress is by using Ratchet Straps to secure your items in the back of the moving truck.
There are a lot of items that might be okay on a smooth ride down a straight from point A to point B, but as we know that never happens. Sharp turns, bumps, and potholes are inevitable on virtually any drive and these things can be harmful to your cargo! That is why it is important to use Tie Down Straps on your items to account for these unfortunate realities.
Some moving trucks are equipped with E Track which is a great way to use Ratchet Straps. This reduces the risk of individual items falling over by increasing the number of contact points with the ground. Moving blankets are another great way to prevent damage to your items and Ratchet Straps can be used to secure them to items that can be easily scratched or dented.

Using Ratchet Straps for DIY Projects
There are so many ways to use Ratchet Straps in your home. From home improvement to art projects we have you covered with a wide variety of Ratchet Straps. If you have been working hard on a project, the last thing you would want is for it to fall apart before your eyes because you failed to secure it properly. Ratchet Straps are an easy and cost-effective way to hold together any project you may have no matter how large. Ratchet Straps are sometimes an alternative to clamps when you are dealing with larger projects that clamps may not be able to handle.
Tie Down Straps are also less harsh than hard metal or plastic clamps because they are made out of polyester material which is rigid yet soft. Whatever project you are using the Ratchet Straps for, always make sure that you secure them properly and pay attention to the Working Load Limit and breaking strength of all the component parts. Failure to heed the labeled warning could cause your project to be damaged and yourself to be injured.
