ATTACHING HARDWARE TO THE ROPE ONCE YOU'VE SET UP THE STRAPS:
Keep the rope from touching the ground by uncoiling it slowly from the bag. This will increase the life of the rope. Thread two rope clamps (keep them in the open position) onto one end of the rope and move them down about two feet. Use four clamps if your plan on attaching two dogs to the track. Thread the end of the rope into the ratchet so that the teeth of the ratchet catch the rope on the other side when pulled back around. As you walk to the other anchor point, let out more rope but keep it taut. Attach the other end of the rope to the other ratchet in the same manner as the other ratchet. Pull tight so the rope becomes very taut.
