The recommended method of rigging is to use an 8 ft loop strap with a minimum of two wraps on the upper and lower longitudinal members. This prevents the tube from rotating and only requires one buckle properly located outside the craft. Never crawl inside a cat in moving water to de-rig.
Need Loop Straps?: Strapa are not rocket science. 40 pound-force per group of strand is more than adequate for straps. If the cost or availability of straps makes you choke: Try Nylon Mule Tape. This material is available on Ebay for less than 1/2 cent per foot with a tension capacity of 600 lbf. Your Choice.
