Load binders are an essential piece of tie-down equipment in the flatbed industry and one that every trucker should own! But there’s a lot of information out there; how do you know you’re picking the right binder for your cargo? As a premier supplier of flatbed trucking equipment, we at Mytee Products have created this list of our Best Seven Chain Binders in the Flatbed Industry!

Top 7 Binder

1. Peerless Folding Handle Chain Binder

Our best-selling and number-one chain binder is our peerless folding handle binder! Uniquely designed to be versatile and help save you space! With high load ratings, this binder can be used with both G70 and G80 chains. Customers love the wide rubber grip and easy-to-use ergonomic latch, which allows for easy storage!

2. Standard Ratchet Binder ⅜ – ½

3. Standard Lever Chain Binder

Also called Snap binders, this is the preferred binder for pro drivers because of how fast and easy they are to use! We recommend this binder for more experienced drivers, as snap binders have risks with the lever handle storing energy, recoiling and injuring the user. These binders are ideal for 5/16 chains, and are best for short-haul truckers who are constantly loading and unloading, or are short on time between deliveries!

5. USA Chain Binder Ratchet Style 5/16 – ⅜

For our general-purpose flatbedders, our 5/16’’ – 3/8’’ Ratchet Binders are useful for multiple load types! Ratchet binders are often viewed as a safer binder option because they do not store as much energy and tension in the handle, reducing the risk of recoil and injury. Forged and assembled here in the USA with domestic materials, our customers love these binders and we love supporting American manufacturing as often as we can!

If you’re a heavy hauler or tend to carry heavy cargo, our swaged handle binders were built for you! The swaged barrel has increased strength as it’s cold-drawn tubing rather than the welded pipe used in other ratchet binders. Our swaged handle binders are built for the most demanding jobs!
