    If you like it, its solid and works.

    personally 2 things, i prefer to tighten the portables before wrapping the ends up, and the ends of the loops when placed like that still flap in the wind a small amount compared to adding the bungee. Its not a problem and not going anywhere, but it catches my eye in the mirror, so that way just isnt for me.

    My big fear with this setup, was always that it would loose out and wrap around an axle.
    I did the vertical wrap through, with a bungee for good measure.

    but hey, my #### can’t fall out of the tank these days (usually.)

    glad you guys are humpin those tarps and tossin those chains because this guy ain’t touching that #### any time soon

    2 straps on the top layer? I would give that a big F no. But I do give the guy props for strapping each layer.

    Not!
    the fact that each layer has 2 straps is good and safe, only 2 on the top is not safe and should have a minimum of 3 more.
