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.
