You might. It won't be nearly as easy or as fun as using three carabiners and building a pulley system. There's an article on such systems here: http://www.rockclimbing.com/Articles/Slacklining/Smarter_Not_Harder_-_Coldclimb_s_Slackline_Setup_138.html

Or if that's not enough, check the forums at www.slackline.com and you'll get tons of help.

I've had no luck with ratcets. I bought one and it sucks a big one. always getting jammed and tangled. I'd recomend you just go buy 3 beiners and do it like everyone else
