Using the Right Winch to Secure Your Cargo
A winch bar is a must-have tool for any flatbed job. Often made of high strength polished steel, the winch bar tightens and releases winch straps. Additionally, its knurled, non-slip design provides sufficient leverage and ensures that your winch straps are as tight as possible.
Flatbed Winch Bars at Mytee Products
Though flatbed truckers want to make sure that they’re using the right type of winch bar to meet their job demands. With over 11 different types of winch bars in stock, Mytee Products knows that choosing the right flatbed bar for your cargo means getting the best kind of leverage and a tighter hold. All in all, winch bars are a must-have for proper load hauling. Here are five winch bars that will ensure the protection of your cargo:
Standard Winch Bar
Our most popular product, the Standard Winch Bar, is best suited for web winches. This flatbed bar comes equipped with a nozzle on one end and an anti-slip grip on the other. Even better, truckers won’t have to worry about slippage.
Here at Mytee Products, our standard winch bars come in chrome or painted styles, whichever suits your fancy. All in all, the Standard Winch Bar’s design provides a comfortable and easy-to-use experience for flatbed truckers.
Combination Winch Bar
Similar to the first one on our list, the Combination Winch Bar has a nozzle on one end of the bar that’s designed for winches. The other side features a box end which truckers use to tighten lever binders. More importantly, a Combination Winch Bar will ensure cargo securement.
Ratcheting Winch Bar
The Ratchet Winch Bar features a nozzle on one end of the bar and a ratcheting mechanism on the other side. Additionally, this flatbed ratchet bar comes equipped with a steel pin. Truckers can insert the ratcheting end into the winch and lock it in place with the pin. You don’t even have to repeatedly remove the pin in order to tighten your straps.
Our customers will be happy to know that this type of flatbed bar comes in both standard and combination styles. The latter of the two features a box end on one side of the bar, making it just that much easier to secure your cargo straps and load.
Ergo Winch Bar

In most instances, the practice of winching and securing loads can often strain a person’s muscles, back, and arms. Fortunately, the Ergo Winch bar can assume any position at optimal leverage.
Torque Winch Bar
Last on our list comes Mytee Products' very own and newly designed flatbed bar, the Torque Winch Bar. Primarily made for torque winches, this combination flatbed bar features a nozzle and a 1/2-inch torque drive.
