I have brought these magnificent straps up to Will for consideration on the Sparks binders and would love to know if anyone else would like to see these implemented into the lineup (even as an add on). The added bonus is quite obvious. Tighten using the spiral side and locking in place using the straight side. This fixes the problem that ghost ratcheting does to the straps by locking the strap in place on a different surface than it tightens. The other added bonus is that the strap locks on the first tooth without having to feed the ratchet a bunch of ladder before it locks.
