That's correct. Just securing the loose ends.

I remember seeing adverts for some straps (Ericsson, IIRC) that have a
spring loaded self adjustment you use before ratcheting the strap. Not
cheap I'm sure. I used to roll our straps up between uses and hold
them with big rubber bands, but that's a PITA. These days I have a
length of wire between adjacent studs in our shed and I hang them from
that. Usually works okay, but I think they're multiplying. :>)
