I was at Lowe's yesterday buying PVC for parallettes and thought I might as well buy some tow straps and make some rings. Everything I can find with a load limit over 100lbs has a rachet system; no buckles. I tried all the hardware stores, auto stores, REI; I'm flumoxed. You'd think a simple metal triple-pass buckle wouldn't be that hard to find in a major metropolis. In this town, you'd be wrong. Any ideas? BTW, I haven't had a chance to try it yet but my idea was to thread the strap through the PVC and out through a 1" metal ring. The idea was to have full strength and not much bulk, knots, tape, etc. Anyone tried anything like that?
