More About Ratchet Straps & Tie Downs
Ratchet straps are available in so many sizes and styles, there is something for nearly any type of tie down application. Used mostly for flatbed trailers, interior van trailers (commonly known as logistic straps for L track or E track systems), moving trucks, and many other types of trucks and trailers, standard ratchet strap assemblies are most often made from polyester webbing.

This durable strapping is extremely strong, with very little stretch, to keep loads secure. If you need more stretch for your tie down, check our nylon straps; with buckles or other tie down hardware you add as needed, you can make your own custom nylon strap ratchet tie down.

From general 1" tie down straps with wire hooks to heavy duty 4" ratchet straps with chain extensions, you’ll find the ratchet strap tie down equipment you need at US Cargo Control.

With the wide variety of tie strap, ratchets and cam buckles US Cargo Control offers, you can rest assured our products are extensively tested for safe use. All of our DOT approved ratchet straps have labels with working load limit information and also meet several requirements and guidelines, including:
  • Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA)  guidelines
  • Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations
  • Web Sling & Tie Down Association (WSTDA)
  • North American Cargo Securement
We’ve outlined our most common ratchet strap products below, but keep in mind that custom straps are always an option. Our product specialists can help with any questions you have and can also assist you in placing an order. Call 866-444-9990.

1" Ratchet Straps

1" ratchet straps are available with s-hook, j-hooks and d-rings, flat snap hooks, spring action buckle straps, and more. An endless cam buckle strap is also available, which makes a great perimeter strap, meaning the strap is wrapped around an object and fed back into the buckle or ratchet to secure. Webbing material for our 1" straps is industrial grade for heavy duty use.

2" Ratchet Straps

2" ratchet straps are not only used with e track but are commonly used for flatbed trucks and trailers as well as for hauling vehicles. We have 2" ratchet straps with wire hooks, flat hooks, snap hooks, chain extensions and many other fittings. If you don’t see what you need just give us a call and we will do our best to find the strap that fits your needs.

3" Ratchet Straps

3" ratchet straps are also available and provide break strengths of 15,000 pounds. These heavy duty ratchet straps are made for the heaviest applications and only high quality hardware is used. These ratchet straps are available with chain extensions and either flat hooks or double J hooks, and are also available in custom lengths for cargo strapping systems. Don’t forget to check out our CORDURA® wear sleeves for webbing. This tough fabric offers a layer of durable protection to webbing, to extend the life of the wratchet strap. We offer these handy sleeves in 1", 2", 3" and 4" widths.

4" Ratchet Straps

4" ratchet straps are also available and provide break strengths of 15,000 pounds and over and are available with chain extensions. Although we feature only straps and ratchets in lengths of 27' and 30', custom lengths are available upon request.

L Track & E Track Ratchet Straps Stud Fittings

E-track ratchet straps are 2" wide and come in standard lengths of 12' (Yellow), 16' (Gray) and 20' (Blue). E track straps are available with either cam buckles for pull tight applications or with a ratchet.
Thinking of installing a track system? We offer a wide selection of Airline tracks & L track and E Track  components to work with tie down ratchet straps.

Motorcycle Straps and Tie Down Systems

Motorcycle straps are made with either ratchets or cam buckles and are 1" or 1-1/2" wide. Motorcycle straps can be used in conjunction with track and fittings to tie down your bike and are available in a few different colors. Handle bar straps and ratchet straps with loops are available and ready to ship.

Wheel Nets

Wheel nets are an essential item when moving or hauling a vehicle. We carry a wide variety of side mount wheel nets, car carrier straps, and axle straps. If you don't see the wheel net or car tie-down you are looking for, we can order custom strap ratchets and wheel nets for every occasion.

Cam Straps

A cam strap lock is very similar to a rachet strap, but is easier and faster to use- you simply tighten the strap by pulling the free end of the straps. Available in 1" and 2" widths, cam straps are generally considered for lighter duty use than ratchet straps. Cam strap devices use a small spring inside to create tension and hold tight, while ratchet straps wrap the webbing around a roller which is then locked by the retainer/handle. Cam straps are also ideal for more fragile loads as there is less a risk of over tightening, which can happen with ratchet strapping. Cam straps also work great as a perimeter sstrap to circle items to keep them together, to keep doors closed, etc. such as with a refrigerator, hoses, tool chests, etc.

Replacement Straps

Have a tie down strap with broken hardware, a worn ratchet or a weak spot in the webbing? Buying replacement tie down straps are an excellent way to give new life to old assemblies because you buy only the strap component that you need to replace. Choose from two main styles: 1) bolt loop end with hook or chain extension on opposite end; 2) ratchet end with hook or chain extension on opposite end. Both work great when you need to replace just one end of your tie down straps. The ratchet end style straps are also an easy way to convert your winch straps to ratchet straps.

Webbing

Our ratchet strapping is made with heavy duty polyester webbing for extreme durability and little stretch. If your tie down application requires more stretch, see our selection of nylon straps and buckles /hardware to create your own custom tie down. Many of our nylon products like our nylon lifting slings are American made. Ratchet straps are typically made of polyester; if you need to replace a strap but not the ratchet or cam buckle, check out our polyester cargo webbing or seat belt webbing. Both are high quality choices recommended by ratchet strap manufacturers.
