Also, you ought to test longevity while the strap is subjected to constant compression tension. More than one twist in the strap could possibly cause significant heat on the strap where it's experiencing more tension and compressive loads. The problem many people have is the load is not uniformly disbursed under a strap that has multiple twists, where the compressive and tension load is focused on the weakest point of a twisted strap. The brand, else QA, of the strap also affects the results. I've seen cheap Chinese straps outdo the most expensive American-made strap. I think you ought to follow up on a new test procedure. Your video just visited the theoretical strength of a particular strap but does not evaluate real-life travel conditions under abusive environments, where the strap's elasticity (compressive and tension values) value is significantly degraded over extended periods of travel. I agree that a single twist on both sides of the load would not harm much of anything. Still, your testing method doesn't prove a real-life load environment.

Straps would have probably broke 10k lbs if it didn’t get so hot, but the only time you should get close to breaking strength is during an accident.

Hi! Great Ratchet Load Test! Glad you showed us a controlled test in your shop, instead of me discovering/encountering a Ratchet Strap Failure on the *California* *405* *Freeway* . Were your 2" inch wide straps purchased at *Harbor* *Faint* or a High End Ratchet Retail joint like *Graingers* ?!

Man I think you are on to something....the strap broke literally at the same point every test you did. You should further investigate why it's breaking at that exact same location and how could it be built better. Then make your own style straps so we can buy them 😎

I always put a twist in my straps to keep them from singing, vibrating and eventually coming loose. I used to drive flatbed otr and I would sometimes haul big AC units like the ones on department stores. When you haul those if you don't put a twist in your straps they will beat against the unit and drive you nuts. It's an old wives tale that twisting straps reduces the their breaking strength

I always knew putting a twist im it that it wouldn't diminish the strength in the strap. Just be smart about it and make sure the twist isn't around and on a piece of something that has a sharp edge. I mean in my mind it doesn't even make sense how it would decrease the strength especially by 50%

you always see people in movies using flipped over tables as a bulletproof shield, when in reality they're rip on through. In your case with that beast of a table you can be damn sure that thing isnt going to let anything through, if you could even flip the thing in the first place. Is there a battleship out there missing a chunk of its armor plate?! :D

CRC 3-36 is pretty mild as far as rust inhibitors go and is not recommended for outdoors use. I recall Abom79 used CRC SP-350 on his cnc mill he had to store outside for a bit. It's a much more potent oil-like rust inhibitor and the SP-400 is a step up from that and pretty much a wax coating and no longer an oil.

so they don't make the rated breaking strength? if anything, i'd expect the wet straps to hold more load, because they cool themselves. would like to see a test with aged (weathered) straps too! awesome test and results, i will buy some new straps and twist them once from now on ;)

One of the best "don't do this at home" vids I saw was the building of an ammunition storage building, with cameras; stocking it, and starting a fire... Fire experts who did it, said it's no more dangerous than lots of things in a home anyway. No explosion, just as there's not in a gun under normal operations. First a mannikin then a fireman in normal kit weren't hurt even when a round popped off and sent something their way.

Great video man! I usually don't watch these kinds of content, but it seemed like something that might come up in my life one day, so I watched anyway. Loved the slow-mo aspect, especially and melting caused by the pressure. However, there are two points where the strap would meet the object being stabilized, do you think your experimental results would have been the same given uneven pressure on the straps? (I'm not saying they wouldn't...just wondering if you had any views. Or maybe, follow-up experiment?)
