A ratchet tie down is a tool every handyman or cargo control specialist can find multiple uses for. You'll probably want several ratchet tie downs available any time you're securing cargo for transport. A ratchet tie-down can also come in handy for securing items for storage or against high winds.
The strap material for our 1 inch ratchet straps is industrial grade webbing. Each strap is securely stitched around the ratchet appliance and end fitting. Straps are available with wire hooks, snap hooks, s hooks and d-rings, or you can choose an endless strap for your ratchet tie-downs.

More About 1" Ratchet Straps
1'' Ratchet Tie Down Straps are available with either a ratchet, self-contained ratchet, or a cam buckle that secures the strap at the desired length and won't allow the strap to slip or loosen. Ratchet tie downs come with s-hooks, wire
hooks or d-rings securely stitched to the strap end to attach to your cargo or an anchor point. These ratchet tie down straps are commonly used for a variety of tie down applications from securing motorcycles and smaller sport vehicles for transport to securing loads on pallets, in truck beds or similar applications.

How strong are 1" Tie Down Straps? A 1" strap has a web break strength of 4000 lbs. Assembly break strengths depend on the ratchet tie down assembly components (the 1" ratchet and type of end fitting) but range from 1200 to 3000 lbs. 1" ratchet tie downs have a working load limit of 400 - 1066 lbs depending on the fittings. Ratchet tie-downs also come in 2", 3", and 4" widths for heavier cargo applications.
What is a Self Contained Ratchet Strap? Ratchet tie downs that are self contained include a spooling mechanism that allows the strap to coil within the ratchet itself when not in use which prevents tangling and tail-whipping while hauling. Standard ratchet tie downs will allow the excess strap to extend from the tail of the ratchet and the excess strap will need to be secured by tucking it between the sstrap and cargo.
Protecting cargo when using a ratchet tie down: When using ratchet tie-downs to get a secure hold on cargo it's possible that a 1" strap can crush or cut into the edges of boxes, especially boxes with air pockets or loose packing materials. You can help prevent this with corner protectors that will help to distribute the pressure from the tie down strap across more of the surface, preventing the box edge from collapsing.
