If you’ve ever used ratchet straps to tie things down to your trailer or overland rig roof rack you know first hand how annoying they can be! Loose ends come undone while you’re attaching the other end. You never have enough hands to get everything just right. It can be a real mess! The great folks at Rhino, a proven off road equipment manufacturer, have come out with a great retractable ratchet strap to help! This is pure genius and we’re a little angry we didn’t think of this ourselves!
The Rhino Retractable Ratchet Straps come in various sizes including these 1″ x 10′ size that should work for most people wanting to securely attach things to their roof rack. The ratchet sucks up excess strap at the push of a button making it easier than ever to tighten your load. And because they’re made by Rhino, these retractable ratchet straps are made to last!
– Page Contains Affiliate Links – Why? (click here to expand)
We lose money every month producing the TX:GX Overland website and YouTube channel. Creating content takes time and money – we have to pay for:
Website and WordPress hosting
Trip videos that cost money for fuel, admissions fees at parks/events, and wear and tear on our vehicle
An enormous amount of our time producing this site and the videos (I won’t even begin to calculate that cost!)
Basically, we lose money every month. We use affiliate links and YouTube monetization to try to reduce this monthly loss but they don’t pay much. We lose about $20 per month just from our website costs (not including trip costs).
Purchases made via this website using affiliate links sometimes result in us making a small commission (usually 2-4%) that we use to keep the lights on. But since we lose about $20 per month (not including trip fees) you can see we are definitely not “in it for the money” – we do this out of a love for helping other people enjoy the outdoors and overlanding, to help people get started and find gear to make their trips more successful, and to produce videos that inspire and entertain our viewers.
Even though we lose money each month, we are committed to helping the world we live in. Please read “Who Our Affiliate Links Benefit” to see a list of the causes and charitable organizations we donate to. Thank you for your understanding!

TX:GX Overland is about experiencing the outdoors and doing so in a responsible, sustainable way. Without the trees, the forests, the clean babbling brooks and the open trails we enjoy while overlanding we simply couldn’t exist. Therefore, we are committed to helping organizations that support our outdoor adventures. Though we do not make a profit from the TX:GX Overland website or YouTube channel we still make donations to worthwhile causes. We make donations to the following organizations:
We have reviewed these organizations and determined they fit our purpose. We do not have the resources to do an exhaustive background check of their prior/current activities, partnerships, board members, etc. so if they are “doing something bad” we’re not aware of it. We hope our donations to these organizations is doing the world some good – if you disagree with these choices we respect your decision, please respect ours.
