    Probably better secured that way than with the old ratty bungee cords that I often use.

    Yall would trip if you saw my load sometimes. I always use Romex though. For instance last week I had 42' of 1/2", 21' of 3/4, and 21' of 1 1/4" black on my passenger rear view mirror with a piece of Romex around it and a piece of Romex holding it on the back through a hole I drilled in the bed of my 1500 chevy Silverado.

    Engineering is basically observed failure so he will learn his lesson when he impales something, and hopefully not some one.

    I would hate to be in the car in front of this van if he/she made a sudden stop and the tape was unable to hold the pipe from sliding off.

    Whenever I see something like that I remember a "Final Destination" movie and give them a wide berth. Also semi trucks stacked with pipe or logs.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    Ive used duct tape before...... find it will hold better than straps. You can do it neatly and when you get the pipe or whatever strapped you take the last few inches of tape and fold it onto itself like a tab. Just grab the tab and you can then unroll the tape.

    I used to do this working for a company that would buy you any kind of straps you thought you needed..... but I still would use the tape as a safety measure...

    Forgot to tie down and secure a length of 3/4 black once. Luckily the antique 57 Chevy ahead of me went through the turning red stop light. Thirty some years ago I put the aluminum extension ladder in the back end of the van. Boss to cheap to buy ladder rack.I slam back door, ladder pops through front window. Also lost a clients window unit in the middle of a busy street. Forgot to shut the back doors, some guy pulls beside me at a light "Hey something fell outa your truck back there"

    First thing that comes to mind is the guy in the movie, 'The Omen', that gets his head sliced off by a pane of glass that comes loose...
