Split tree - solution?

Recommended Posts

No I mean you should close the ratchet handle up to the mechanism for safety reasons, lock them by closing them, otherwise they can slip.
 

Can someone explain it better?

Good result.

Didn't agree to take the rest of it down then? Give it a few years....

I was just using the straps to stop any more splitting. Do you reckon I should have used them to close the gap?

I think in these cases trying to reverse the damage can potentially cause more danger. Tensioning to support the split was probably the right thing to do
