The story of our beginning is not much different than almost every other product beginning out there. It started with an ongoing problem that wasn’t even recognized fully until a moment of inspiration struck.
It all began one very snowy day. I found myself in a very familiar situation, needing to transport equipment from one location to another. Usually this is a simple task; Load the equipment, strap it down and drive to our destination. But occasionally, sometimes more than we like to admit. We find ourselves performing this task in weather that is less than ideal, making the task of tying the excess strapping a real pain. This was one of those days. The snow was such that tape wouldn’t stick, and the straps would not stay put. After more than a few unscheduled stops, trying different methods, frustration set in. I decided to allow the excess flap around, knowing full well that they would need to be replaced because of the undue wear. Unfortunately, or possibly fortunately depending on how you look at it. One of the loose ends found its way under the trailer tire. This caused the strap holding the equipment to break, and the load to shift. So now I was on the side of the road, in less than favorable conditions trying to reset the load and once again strap it down. Knowing full well that I would be dealing with the same situation of retying the excess strapping every few miles. That’s when the first rendition of the Strap Flap hit me, and I made the first one right there. It wasn’t perfect, but it did the job. While stopping for fuel, another driver seen the way that my straps were tied. “Hell of an idea” was the only words that he said. And the company began.
Like many of you, I use ratchet straps very frequently. They are a perfect way of making sure that the loads we are transporting, stay in place. But they can also be a pain in the rear.
We come up with ways to store them when not in use;
We all have our ways of taking care of the excess strapping while they are in use. But until now these ways included;
