Not only are they strong and durable, but they are also easy to use. In fact, they are so versatile that they can be used for a multitude of tasks, both big and small. In this article, we will explore the many different uses of straps.

What are lashing straps?

They are long pieces of rope or webbing, some with metal hooks at each end, that have many uses. They can be used to secure cargo on ships and trucks. They can also be used to secure equipment while working outdoors, such as tents and camping gear. The straps can be used in sewing projects and even as a belt when you don’t have one available.

Uses for lashing straps

Here are some of the uses for  straps:

  1. Tie down equipment. They are strong enough to secure heavy objects like kayaks and canoes. You can also use them to secure your tent or sleeping bag to a tree branch when you’re camping.
  2. Make a clothesline for damp clothes. Use two straps and securely attach one end to two trees or posts on either side of your campsite. Then thread clothespins through the other end of the strap so that they hang from the middle of it like clothes on a clothesline. This allows you to hang wet clothing so that it can dry overnight without getting mouldy or mildew in damp conditions.
  3. Secure tarps over fire pits or tables during inclement weather conditions such as rain or snowfall so that your food doesn’t get wet or ruined by windblown sand dunes blowing into campfires during high winds or inclement weather conditions.
