Step 1: Prep
Take one strap and unravel. Feed the tape from underneath the ratchet as in the image. You don't need a lot of tape pulled through. The length is something that will come with trial. It is very important that the tape is not twisted.
Step 2: Roll
As you do this more often, the correct place to start rolling will create a small s bend in the tape. Roll TOWARDS the underneath of the ratchet.
Step 3: Done
Thread the end of the tape around the roll and into the ratchet, tighten the ratchet and you are done.
Step 4: Other Tapes
Other tie down straps can be stored with the same method.
Step 5: From a Mess to Organised.
All nicely stored in the boot of the car.
