    I used to keep a plastic bin in my bed to hold all the misc crap, including ratchet straps. The always get tangled up.

    Now that I have the Ram Box I would like a better way of storing them neatly for better/faster access.

    I work on PCs as a hobby so I have plenty of small Velcro pieces for cleaning up wires. So right now I rolled up the ratchet straps neatly and put the velcro straps around them individually.

    Anyone else have another way?

    I roll mine up like this and store them in my bak box. They don't unroll or get tangled. I use to wrap a rubber band around them and found that wasn't worth the time.

    Roll them, and put them in the storage compartment behind the back seat.

    During the summer months, rolled up and banded with GearTie reusable cable ties.

    During winter, stretched and crisscrossed across the bed directly under the canvas bed cover to add extra support so heavy snow doesn't stretch the canvas.
