A Close Look of Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps are assemblies of ratchet buckles with all kinds of straps with or without hooks, endless or not. The straps part of the assemblies can be made of nylon or polyester webbing, the safe load limit can be less than 100lbs to more than 1000lbs, the strap width can range from 1 inch to 4 inches, usually we can see hooks, loops or chain extension at both ends of the assembly.

The handle of the ratchet buckle have a few varieties, steel handle, aluminum handle or plastic coated handle.

Both nylon and polyester webbing are used to make the straps, but they have different characteristics, for shock absorption, we need nylon webbing and for tie down bulk loads we need polyester webbing straps, nylon webbing has better elongation than polyester while polyester webbing are stronger than nylon ones, in real world applications we need varieties, that is to say we need both nylon and polyester webbing  straps for different needs.

Webbing cab also be coated with suitable materials that will impact desirable characteristics, such as abrasion resistance, sealing to prevent penetration of foreign particles and matter, increased(or decreased) coefficient of friction, ultra-violet light resistance.

Of course the quality of the straps is the most important characteristic, to properly and safely use the ratchet straps is a must. Now how to find these straps with quality and low price? Your local store will probably have most straps you need, but the price to quality ratio probably will be pretty high, but this is not always true. Online tie down stores actually is a better choice if not  most of the time, you can search all around the country even the world to find the deal just for you, when you search “ratchet straps free shipping” you will find the best deal ever for your money.
