How To Fold a Tarp

Tarps, ratchet straps, and bungee cords can be the most frustrating thing to keep tidy and no matter how hard you try they always seem to end up in a ball in the corner of your garage. Read below as we give you a quick, easy, and tidy way for folding up your tarps.

  1. Lay out your tarp on the ground with the side you want to stay clean facing up. Be sure to fully dry a tarp before storing away or you could come back to a moldy tarp.
  2. Fold the shorter edges in half until they meet the center of the tarp. You may need to do this process more than one to get your desired width.
  3. Fold the tarp lengthwise in half twice.
  4. Fold the Tarp once more in half to keep it to approximately a 12″x12″ square. Use A bungee strap or rope to tie the folded tarp and keep it from unfolding when handling or in storage.
