250 lb Capacity Rope Ratchet [BIAB] – $7.51 + free shipping


Carolina North 10026 3/8" Rop Ratchet, 250 lbs Capacity

3/8″ Rope Ratchet, 250 lbs Capacity by Carolina North


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 250 Pounds maximum load limit
  • Easy to use thumb lever releases tension
  • Perfect for a wide variety of uses for home, office, workroom and garden

Rope ratchet is made super tough to take all the hard work you do. The outer casings are made from #6 – 33 percent glass filled nylon with interior mechanisms of die cast zinc. With the 3/8″ rope ratchet you simply attach the two hooks and pull the loose end of the rope for a secure, tight hold. Rope ratchets stay tight, locking in place as you pull the free end. To loosen you just pull the rope to reduce tension and push the handy thumb release. It’s that easy. This rope ratchet holds ups to 250 lbs per ratchet. Actual body size: 3-1/2″ x 2″.


Note from HBF: Given the right setup, this looks like it could be used as a pulley for a BIAB setup.  Of course, you’ll want a capable place to hang it and want to make sure to stay under this rated capacity.  Note: Always read and follow manufacturer’s directions.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage] – $7.25 + free add on shipping

gamma seal lids

Gamma Seal Lid by Gamma2


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Keeps food fresh
  • Airtight seal protects the contents
  • Easy spin on/off lid

“Transform your bucket into an easy opening, airtight, pest-proof storage container with the universal Gamma Seal Lid. When attached to virtually any 12″ diameter bucket (3.5- to 7.0 gallon), the Gamma Seal Lid provides airtight protection for the contents—excellent for literally thousands of storage applications. The resilient elastomeric gaskets keep air and contaminants out, while protecting the contents. Stackability is also a handy feature! The Gamma Seal Lid is available in a variety of food-grade colors for safe storage.”


Gamma Seal Lids [Hands on Review] are a great upgrade to standard buckets.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids off.  These are also airtight.  I use buckets with Gamma Seal Lids as my primary storage for bulk grain and recipe kits.

How much grain can you store in a 5 gallon bucket?  My rule of thumb for grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate a  50 lb sack of grain fits in (2) 5 gallon buckets.  That’s an estimate and will vary.
