One could also, in theory, employ a lightweight block and tackle system like those used in slack-lining, or even some “trucker hitches” in some good static DBP (double braided polypropylene) cord and dispense with those ratchet straps altogether. Of course, one would need to calculate breaking loads and factor in losses in cord strength due to the knots used – so I would only recommend this for people who know how to do so.
