Ratchet Straps | Tie Down Straps

Introduction to Our Heavy Duty Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps are important tools used to hold down and restrain loads during transportation. Not only do they uphold the safety of you, your vehicle, your passengers and other people using the road, they are necessary as attempting to secure or lift heavy equipment without them can make the operation unsafe and dangerous. At Equip2Go, we have ratchet tie downs, cam buckle tie downs and replacement straps available.

 

Industrial Uses of Our Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps are commonplace in a variety of industries. These include equipment manufacturers and suppliers, freight consigners, vehicle manufacturers and drivers. Additionally, due to their wide industrial functionality, they can also be used as truck tie down straps, trailer tie down straps, car tie down straps and fridge tie down straps.

 

What to Consider When Buying Our Ratchet Straps

At Equip2Go, we have both Cam Buckle Tie Downs and Ratchet Tie Downs for you to choose from. Although both are efficient and reliable in getting the job done, there are slight differences in how they are used. Cam buckle straps employ a cam mechanism with teeth that tightly secures the strap and allows it to be tightened without slipping out. However, over time the teeth of a cam buckle can cause the strap to wear. While cam buckle straps are durable and convenient for various applications, ratchet tie down straps are a better choice in some situations. They feature a ratchet mechanism that tightens the strap each time you open and close the lever. Overall, they are easy to tighten, they hold really well, and they allow you to get the strap tighter than a cam buckle tie down.

Apart from the type of strap, it is also important to consider specifications such as size, length, box quantity and lashing capacity. For example, our endless ratchet straps are available in lengths ranging from 5m to 9m, and with lashing capacities of 500kg to 5000kg. Ensuring that all load restraint straps is used as it is intended and that its limits are not exceeded is imperative to preserving its condition, as well as maintaining the health and safety of yourself and others.

 

Safety Features of Our Ratchet Straps

Our lockable tie down straps are equipped with many safety features to ensure your security and confidence when using them. In particular, our ratchet tie downs have heavy duty buckles, hooks and keepers to enable stable and consistent load restraining. Additionally, all of our cargo straps are compliant with Australian Standards AS4380, elucidating their capabilities and conformity to current Australian load restraint standards.

Besides these features, there are a number of additional precautions you can carry out to maintain safety when restraining loads. These include making sure to properly assemble your load straps before use, and that your load is adequately secured in a position that does not affect your ability to see behind you when driving. It is also important to abide by your vehicle’s weight limits, and always verify that your truck ratchet straps have secured your load in a way that does not hang over your vehicle. Following these safety measures can play a vital role in sustaining your safety, as well as the safety of those around you.
