I am sure there are many good options to strap graph covers on while trailering. I have been looking for a good method and would love to hear what others have used successfully. Thanks in advance.

Don’t over think it. No one cares if your graph cover retaining method is state of the art or not.

I use Velcro straps. You can get them on Amazon very cheap

Thanks man. I was literally losing sleep wondering whether people thought I was doing it right. Your post really made me feel better about myself. Can't believe I was putting so much thought and research into something so simple. And yes, I am being sarcastic.

LOL. I absolutely need my pillow fluffed.

The reason I asked is because I finally have a boat with hi-tech cool graphs that actually have covers and instead of trial by error and losing my covers flying down the road a few times figuring it out on my own I thought I'd reach out to the experts to see what works best for everyone.

So thanks to those who have responded.

Velcro straps. Been using them for years. Buy it in the roll and cut to fit.

I have found these to be superior to bungee cords and tarp straps. thumb

I use these because I thought they were pretty cool. They have changed the design a little and raised the price some, but still pretty cool in my opinion. https://boatefx.com/products/boatefx-electronic-graph-cover-trap
