I have been doing that and some things just do not tie down very well that way. I found tie down straps at expediton exchange that look like they will help.

I'm pretty sure this is the online vendor I bought my net from.

Cascade Nets :: Barrier Netting

Mine is 4' x 8' which you won't find on their list.

Give them a call and they will make any size you want (they are all hand made of course).

Mine is the #21 (second one down on the page), 209 LB Single Strand Tensile Strength, 836 LB Mesh Bursting Strength.

I think it cost around 50 bucks (that was a few years back).

Thanks for the link and information Volhoo, will get one of those barrier nets soon. Used bungee nets before and the tangling can get exasperating.

Dig up some back issues of Overland Journal. They have covered the topic of cargo tie-down and good cargo boxes several times. The starting point is a good roof rack. That does not include the factory rack. I have an ARB aluminum rack and consider it one of the very best. For tie down I use both stretch cargo nets and cam straps. I find ratchet straps too slow to secure. The cam straps are available from rafting companies such as nrsweb.com. Someday I will shoot some photos of my loaded rack.

I run the strap around the bar and hook the strap to itself when it doesn't fit on or around whatever I am strapping to.
I use some of these for roof rack loads, as well as for their original purpose, loading motorcycles. Very versatile item..

For lighter loads, the rokstraps are a lifesaver, and worth every penny
