A ratchet strap is a tie-down strap which is designed to contain and tie goods or equipment. Using a ratchet, they are tightened and strapped down to create a secure and reliable fastening on the target. Ratchet straps are commonly used as tie-down fittings within the following applications:
• Pallets carrying heavy-duty goods
• Steel beams or RSJs
• Large amounts of wooden logs
• Crates of equipment or goods ready for travel
How do they work?
These strappings are load bearing fasteners, meaning they are able to hold down heavy goods on the backs of trailers or on pallets. A ratchet is then used to tighten down the webbing or strap. These particular straps use a claw hook, meaning a claw shape hook wraps around the end buckle to grasp a strong connection.
