What are Tie Down Straps?
A tie strap is a reusable fastener, usually made of high-strength webbing. Watch straps usually have some form of metal clasp attached to one end and pass through the other end.
Tie-down straps come in a variety of lengths and strengths. They can be up to 40 feet long and vary in width from 1 inch to 4 inches. The thicker and wider the strap, the heavier the load it can handle.
Depending on the purpose and weight of the cargo, a variety of tie-down straps are available:
1) Tie-down straps or straps
These are lightweight versions of tie down straps for light loads. Typically, they have a working load of 100 lbs (50 kg) and a maximum breaking strength of 220 lbs (100 kg). (Note that the buckle will slip off before the webbing breaks)
They utilize spring-loaded metal buckles to wedge the webbing and keep it from slipping.
2) Cam buckle
Similar to lashing straps, but designed for medium loads up to 1,500 lbs (680 kg). They usually have an additional fastening mechanism to better hold the load.
3) Ratchet belt
Ratchet straps are designed to handle the heaviest loads, with a working load limit of up to 5,000 lbs (2200 kg). They are so called because the ratchet mechanism helps hold large loads securely.
