    Default Need help, question about locking straps

    I have seen several people post about moose care skinning/field dressing and I think twice I have seen mention of locking straps that allow people to lift a moose quarter with one hand. I am wonder what they are referring to with the "locking strap" and if someone could supply me with a picture or a link to a manufacturer of such items.

    Thanks.

    I think some folks use a "ratchet strap" to pull the hind quarter back while cutting it loose. I can sometimes be hard to pull the hindy up by yourself while your cutting at the ball joint and having steady tension makes it alot easier to make the necessary cuts without making a mess...jm .02

    You can buy locking straps at Alaska Tent and tarp.


    To prove how easy it is to lift a Bull Moose hind quarter ham using my straps. I took a picture of my 15 year old granddaughter lifting a ham, using only one hand with ease.

    This moose was the largest of three Bull Moose taken in the area.


    What the big deal?



    Iím so strong.



    Eww, It touched Me!!!!!!

    Call me blind and stupid, but I still don't get it. Just looks like a rope tied around a hind quarter.
