Strap Sack - Review

In our recent post on The Perfect Bungee, we noted our total devotion to the ratchet strap. There just isn't a better, more secure way to tie down your stuff. We've held down some pretty substantial lumber runs with a single ratchet strap.

The one drawback to the ratchet strap is storage. For a while we tossed them in a tupperware container under the front seat, but it always turned into a spaghetti mess and when we needed a strap, we always had to spend ten minutes trying to free the appropriate pieces. Then, we devised a way to fold and tie up each piece after use, but it takes some effort and most of the time it's not effort we're interested in. So here comes the Strap Sack...

So The Strap Sack is a ratchet strap accessory. It's a bag that attaches to the strap, right at the tightening mechanism and is good for a few things. First, when the strap is not in use, you can shove both pieces of the strap in there and tighten up the bag. Second, when the strap is in use, you can store the strap tail in the sack. If you've ever had a length of strap hanging off the back of your truck and backed over it, you know the benefits of containing these loose ends.

Strap Sack sent us a couple bags to check out and we immediately put them to use. They're pretty handy. When you first put them on, you can size one of the holes around the hook end of the strap with a wire tie, basically attaching it to the strap, while the other opening is adjustable.

Now, instead of a big mess behind the front seat, we've got four little baggies, each with a strap ready to go. It's about $15 for a pack of four sacks. If you're into the whole ratchet strap thing, it's probably a worthy investment.
