I made this video for a friend to show him how I use reusable wire ties (aka zip ties) to secure the excess webbing of my tie down straps, especially when hauling my motorcycle in an open trailer. This keeps the excess webbing from thrashing about, and therefore prevents damage to the paint and other parts of the motorcycle.
Of course, this method is useful for whenever tie down straps are being used.
This video shows how cam buckle straps are great ATV tie downs. Cam straps are quick and easy to use, and have plenty of strength to hold large ATVs. Just make sure the working load limit of the straps exceeds the weight of the ATV you are tying down.
Mrs. Wranglerstar will show you the basics of how to use ratchet straps. Why are ratchet straps so hard to use? Let her show you a few tips that will make your life a bit easier. I think one reason ratchet straps are so hard to use is because they get dry and need a little bit of WD-40. The second issue is learning how to release the winding wheel.
Senior Sales Specialist, Scott Brunson details a common use for endless ratchet straps to secure cargo to a pallet before transport. Scott also demonstrates the importance of using plastic corner protectors to protect delicate cargo and also to prolong the life of the webbing of the strap.

In this segment we’re going to show you how to use a 1 inch ratchet strap to tie down an ATV.
First we are going to take the long end of the strap and feed it up and through the frame of the ATV. Putting it through the frame gives us the most stable spot to tie down. Be careful that you do not go around the axles, A arms, or anything that is prone to damage. Hook the fixed end of the strap to the other anchor point.
Next, pull the slack out of the strap. This is important so that you don’t have too much webbing around the mandrel of
the ratchet which will cause it to bind before it is completely tightened. We’ll hold the strap tight and begin to ratchet. You can see how after just a few ratchets that the ATV is cinching down to the trailer.
The last step is to close the ratchet and secure any extra webbing so that it isn’t flapping around during travel.
RELEASING THE RATCHET
Your ratchet has a spring release. Pull the release with your fingers and open the ratchet completely, keeping the lever pulled. You can see it easily releases the tension to unhook it.
NOTE: You MUST also attach a second strap to the rear frame of the ATV to prevent “swapping” of the rear end to safely secure it for transport. Your total working load limit of the straps must exceed the weight of the object you are tying down.
