Re: Ratchet straps

They all have sort of a loop where the hook is sewn on. I would personally just use a pair of hardware store ones (they make some nicer ones these days although not stainless) as a spare while the others are repaired and keep them as a spare. The issues with using hardware ones long term are the rust and the fact that most of the webbing on those is not designed for long term UV resistance although I suppose you could use 303 to help in that regard.
