Ratchet straps are great for tying down equipment, but it’s hard to figure out what to do with their excess length. The Cargo Buckle solves this problem by keeping the entire extra length of strap contained within the ratcheting mechanism. As the strap gets cranked down, it simply disappears into the corrosion-resistant cover. The straps are made of seatbelt-quality polyester webbing. The unit can be bolted to a trailer bed and comes with 6 feet of strap. Available with 1- or 2-inch-thick straps. Price: $53 for two 1-inch straps, $75 for two 2-inch straps. 888-937-4626. cargobuckle.com.
