Should I Put Straps On My Grain Cover Tarp?
You can but before you do you should know that straps are attached to add more safety if the power goes out. In cases like this, it will buy some time for you if there is power disruption that will last for a short period of time or the wind isn’t too strong. So it all depends on the objective why you want the straps over the tarp. Most times the straps flapping on top the tarp wear holes in the tarp and this would make the tarp vulnerable to ripping. For tarps not to rip off many builds the strap into the tarp. As such a generator and transfer switch would be a good investment.
