    And I’ll be implementing the same ideas as he pictured.

    Worked out ok.

    The 40’ straps on the bottom take up a bit of real estate, but fit 13 40’ on the bottom - 12 mixed 26’ and shorter in the middle - and 8 26’ with chain hook on the top.

    Thanks to @6mmrem for the idea and motivation to make my work life tidier and easier.

    Wife ordered them on amazon or eBay or somewhere?

    That sounds like the right size though? I think I got 50 of them last year? I’ve had 3 or 4 break mostly in the cold.

    I could use those on the extra strap on my ratchet straps. Even over an 84" coil I use only 1/2 of 20 feet of strap. So I have that loose end cluttering my deck.

    Here is what I come up with. Aluminum, laser cut, welded, with partitions. Those bottom left 2 straps made 1110 miles and only unwound a bit. I'll like that band idea, probably find a inner tube that works. Thinking regular rubbers will break in Canadian winter's. Thanks to all the replies.

    I think we are overthinking a simple problem just use rubber bands and put neatly in the side box
