Winch Straps

Winch Straps

Winch Straps and Tie Down Straps are the most important pieces of hardware for holding down loads. While the Tarp protects the loads from the elements, it is the high tension in the tie down straps that keeps the load in place. The winch straps that we offer are weather resistant, durable and able to hold down and control loads on flatbeds. In the entire system, the heavy duty winch straps have to be capable of handling the high tension. We provide a wide range of tie-down straps such as ratchet tie downs amongst others which are used by Drivers in locations on the rail that do not have a bolt on winch.

What are the Winch Straps?

Winch straps are tie down straps, a means of securing loads on a flatbed truck. They’re useful because they’re easily pulled taut enough to hold the load using tension. Winch straps are typically made of polyester webbing. These are the most widely used method of securing a load to a truck.

To secure a load with winch straps, your flatbed trailer needs to be equipped with winches. This is sometimes called a winch winder. Once attached to the winch, simply pull the strap over the load, attach it to the opposite end, and pull it taut to secure the cargo.

For safety, and to ensure that the distribution of tension is spread out across the load, the Federal Motor Safety Association, you need one tie-down for every ten feet (3. 04 m) of your load.

Winch straps can’t be used for overhead lifting.

Benefits of Winch Straps

Trailer winch straps can be the best choice for securing your load. They’ve got seven key benefits.

  • Weather resistant: Straps are created from polyester webbing, and they’re coated and treated to resist damage from rain, snow, or UV radiation.
  • Cargo-safe: Unlike chains or other, harder securement methods, the polyester webbing is soft enough that it won’t damage any fragile goods, like beehives.
  • Durable: The sides of the winch straps at Mytee Products are reinforced to reduce possible wear and tear that stems from fraying, or from tensions against sharp-edged loads. Our kinedyne winch straps are made of high abrasion webbing, which makes them even more durable.
  • Strong: Our strongest straps have a working load limit of 6670: stronger than 3/8 thick G70 chains!
  • Lighter than comparable chains: 4” winch straps weigh 4 – 6lbs. Much lighter than transport chains with the same max WLL.
  • Cost-effective: Winch straps are inexpensive and are suitable for most loads.
  • Easy-to-use. These straps are the standard securement method and can be used with any flatbed trailer that has winches.

Where can I use winch straps?

You can use winch straps to secure load on any flatbed trailer equipped with winches spaced lengthwise along one the side of the trailer.

If you’re transporting a particularly sharp-edged load, like steel, or if you are concerned that the tension from the straps might damage your cargo, you might want to combine winch straps with corner protectors. Corner protectors distribute the pressure from your winch straps over a wider area, and they improve your winch strap’s lifespan.

No winches? No problem! Mytee Products offers a variety of portable winches you can bolt anywhere alongside the trailer side channel.

My Winch Strap Options

Your tie down strap options can be broken up into a few categories: end fitting options, WLL options, and width options.

End fitting

You can attach your winch strap to your flatbed in a few different ways. The best tool for you depends on your budget and your load. At Mytee, we offer winch straps with the following end fittings:

  • Flat hooks: Flat hooks are the most standard end fitting. Their width distributes tension from the load to maximize stability. To use a flat hook, your flatbed trailer needs a rub-rail with slots opposite the side with winches.
  • Wire hooks: Wire hooks are usually used when a flatbed trailer has D-rings on the side opposite the winches, rather than a slotted rub-rail.
  • Chain anchors: Chain anchors are also useful to secure your load to a d-ring.
  • Sewn loops and delta rings: These sewn loops and delta rings are less common, and tend to be for specialty loads.

Maximum load limit

Different winch straps have different strengths. Lighter, thinner winch straps cost less, but they’re weaker when it comes to their WLL. Thicker, heavier straps have a higher WLL. With our winch straps, we offer the following WLL options:

  • 3335 lbs
  • 5000 lbs
  • 5400 lbs
  • 6670 lbs

Width

Mytee Products offers winch straps with the following widths:

  • 2 inch winch straps
  • 3 inch winch straps
  • 4 inch winch straps
