I usually use tie downs instead of ratchet straps. The type with the 1 way pull through buckets. I depress the shocks a little and cinch them tight.
just a FYI
the problem with using these, is many are NOT rated to handle the weight of a 4x4 atv
so your some what asking for a issue?
will you ever have one?
but a heads up
if there NOT rated to handle the atv
there is chance they can fail!
I would never use them to tow an ATV,or not to go far or fats with it on the trailer!
same thing for those that use w Winch, winches are NOT made to be used as tie downs!, yet IO know so many that do, and its a accident waiting to happen
read the manual on the winch and will see it states DO NOT USE to hold things down
