My Jet-Lift strap tore hauling fat sit downs up a hill this past summer, so I needed a replacement!

1. Get a 3/8"x 8" or longer Stainless Steel Eye loop from your local hardware store.

2. Remove the Nut, and bend it into a hook by doing small bends every 1/4" until it looks like below. A vise would be ideal for this, but I just used a hole in my trailer. I added some heat shrink over the threads. You could sand/grind them down, but that takes work.

3. Test fit it in the hole, I had to open mine up a little to get a nice hook action.

4. Use some left over Ratchet strap, and sew the hook on to the cart.

Coming Soon...

I am using a beverage type line that would probably work fine with that bend. simiar to the braided clear like you can find at lowes, just the wall is not as thick.
