About Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps, also called ratchet tie-downs, are flat, 2"-4"-wide straps made of polyester webbing. They're used to secure cargo to flatbed trailers, the interior of semi-trailers, or onto L-track or E-track systems. These straps prevent cargo from rocking around or coming loose during transport, even during a bumpy ride.

This ratcheting mechanism lets you put the precise amount of tension in the tie-down that you need to secure the load tightly without damaging it, which makes ratchet straps a multi-purpose cargo control method.

Ratchet tie-down straps also work with a variety of end-fittings.

When to Use Ratchet Straps?

Ratchet straps can be used to secure any kind of cargo as long as the cargo doesn't surpass the strap's working load limit (WLL). “Wider the strap, the higher the WLL”

All ratchet straps have tags or stamps that clearly indicate the WLL of that particular strap, in compliance with Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations.

How to Use Ratchet Straps

Make sure you use enough straps that you've spread the tension out across your load. But, if too much tension is applied to a single point on a piece of cargo, you risk either damaging the cargo or damaging the strap.

To maximize your success, make sure the ratchet tie-downs' end-fittings are the best suited to your truck: D-rings, rub rails, and tracks are compatible with different fittings.

Advantages of Ratchet Straps

  • Ratchet straps are softer and lighter than cargo chains. This makes them easier to carry and lift, it means they're much less likely to damage lightweight cargo.
  • Ratchet straps don't require winches or any pre-installed anchor points.
  • Ratchet tie-downs can be pulled diagonally across loads as well as horizontally, while winch straps can only be pulled horizontally to the winch directly opposite the winch you start from.

Types of Ratchet Strap

From the view point of Size:

You can choose from different widths of ratchet strap:

  • 2"-wide ratchet tie-downs are the lightest to carry but have the lowest WLL, typically 3,333 lbs.
  • 3'-wide straps are still fairly lightweight and have a higher WLL, typically 5000 lbs.
  • 4"-wide straps have the highest WLL, typically 5400 lbs.

From the View Point of End-fittings:

You can also choose from a wide range of end-fitting options. The three most popular end-fittings are:

  • Flat hooks are compatible with flat anchor points, like stake pockets or the side of a trailer bed
  • J-hooks (also called wire hooks) are compatible with D-rings, O-rings, and trailer sides
  • Chain hooks (also called grab hooks) are connected to a chain end-fitting that increases the ratchet strap's WLL. Chain hooks are compatible with most anchor points.

From the View Point of Color:

For easy, at-a-glance identification, ratchet straps come in five colors:

  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Orange
  • Green

Accessories to Use with Ratchet Straps

Strap Saver

A strap saver is a bolt-on mechanism that safely stores excess straps after the ratchet strap has been fastened.

Strap Winder:

A strap winder allows you to wind up straps quickly and keep them neatly rolled. These work with ratchet straps and winch straps.

Strap Bands:

Strap bands keep rolled ratchet and winch straps tight and prevent them from getting tangled.

Corner Protectors:

Corner protectors cover the sharp corners or edges of a piece of cargo to prevent the edge from cutting the strap.
