No-Tangle Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps must have a self-tangling feature—they’re always twisted up when I want to use them. I’ve tried bundling them with rubber bands, but the bands break as they get old. So I bought a roll of stretch wrap and put it in a canvas bag with my ratchet straps. When I’m done using a strap, I bundle it up and wrap it tight with a few rounds of stretch wrap. I fold back the end portion so it’s easy to unwrap the next time. Now my straps are always ready to use. — Mike Coleman
