Time-Saving "Ratchet Strap Winder"
"It works fast and is really handy. I can roll up a 40-ft. long strap in only about 10 seconds," says Brandenburg.
The strap ratchet winder consists of a 12-in. long metal brace with a slot at one end that clamps down over the rug rail on the side of the trailer bed. A 10-in. dia. metal plate is welded to the other end of the brace. A 2-in. sq. strap holder welded into the center of the plate holds the strap as it's wound up. The operator simply places the hook end of the strap over the strap holder and starts cranking.
"Once I'm done using the strap winder I just throw it in a box under the trailer," notes Brandenburg.
