how to tie luggage on top of car

 

Introduction

If you’re a road trip enthusiast, you know that there’s nothing like hitting the open road with your favorite people in tow. And whether it’s for business or pleasure, no vehicle is complete without some luggage strapped to its roof. Storing your bags on top of your car ensures an easy way for them to travel with you wherever you go and that’s why we’re here today! Just how do you tie up luggage correctly? In this guide I'll show you from start to finish everything there is to know about securing your load properly so it doesn't fly off down the highway

You’ll need at least two tie-downs. A ratcheting tie-down has a high strength rating, and they’re easy to cinch tight.

You’ll need at least two tie-downs. A ratcheting tie-down has a high strength rating, and they’re easy to cinch tight. You should use a high strength tie-down because the strap will be under constant tension as you drive, so it needs to be strong enough for the job.

Make sure the ropes or straps are high-strength and tie well. And try them out beforehand.

You’ll want to make sure you have the right straps or ropes to tie down your luggage. Make sure they are high-strength and tie well. You don’t want them to break while you are driving, which could cause serious injury or property damage. If you don’t know how strong a rope is, then test it out beforehand by pulling on it with all of your might until it breaks.

Cinch down the first strap on one side of your load, in a couple of places if you can.

Hook the strap around the roof and run it over the roof in an “X” pattern.

Run the strap over the roof in an “X” pattern, then around the opposite side of your load.

Now it's time to secure the strap. You'll want to be sure that it is tight, but not so tight that it may damage your car or cause any damage to your load. The strap should be held securely in place by the trunk lid or hatchback of your vehicle. This will prevent excess movement from happening while driving and make sure everything stays firmly in place.

Position your remaining straps so that they don’t pull against each other at any point.

Make sure the straps are not crossed over each other and make sure they are all secured properly.

Unhook your ratchet, then pull the strap until it feels tight and secure.

Now that you've got your load secure, it's time to be sure it doesn't slip off. First, un-hook your ratchet and pull the strap until it feels tight and secure. Make sure there is no slack in the strap when you are done pulling.

Next, make sure that the strap is not twisted by looking at the part of the strap with the metal hooks attached (the ratchet) from both sides of your car. If you can see any twist in them at all then they will need to be straightened out before reattaching them with your ratchet system so they can hold onto whatever they are securing in place properly without slipping or coming undone during transport.

Securing luggage on the roof of a car is an important skill to have.

When you secure your luggage on the roof of a car, it's important to do so properly. If not secured properly, luggage can fall off and get lost. It can also damage the car or even injure people inside it.

For example: If you place your luggage on top of your car without tying it down and then drive at highway speeds (which are usually between 45-60 mph), there is a high likelihood that one or more pieces will become unwrapped from their restraints and fly off the vehicle into traffic behind it.

In addition to the risk of losing valuable items like clothing and electronics through this method, there are also serious safety concerns associated with flying objects impacting other vehicles in traffic jams or at intersections.

Conclusion

That’s really all there is to it. Once you have the right straps, it’s just a matter of double-checking your equipment and making sure that everything is in place before driving off. Just make sure not to overload the roof rack so much that it becomes unsafe for your car or your passengers!
