That was not so joyful.

We expected the 5 year old to break things, not the 45 year old. But it's ok.

Any suggestions on how to free up an overwound ratchet strap?

Der lazywebz only produces results that either say "it's corroded" (it isn't) or "pull really hard" (I tried).

I was thinking about using the truck to pull on it, but that sounds like it could be dangerous.

Cut the strap!

Do you have too much strap on the spool? A screwdriver against the pawl should do it, but the ratchet needs to be near flat.

I tried the screwdriver thing but it didn't work. I was going to try cutting the strap but I decided it would be better to just drive the truck off a cliff so I wouldn't need ratchet straps anymore.

But before I got to do my Toonces routine, I discovered that this particular ratchet allows for turning the bolt with a wrench while the ratchet is disengaged.
With sufficient leverage that loosened it.
