What Are Reverse-Action Ratchet Straps?

Also known as pull-down straps or gear-driving reverse-action ratchet straps, these traps look very similar to other tie down options, including the same durable polyester webbing and high-strength end-fitting material. However, they operate differently due to the ratchets containing an additional gear that creates the reverse-action leverage for much easier operation.

Benefits of Reverse-Action Straps

Reverse-action ratchet straps provide a number of benefits compared to standard ratchet strap alternatives, including:

    • Ergonomic Design: The additional gear within the ratchet allows you to use your body weight to pull down on the ratchet handle, rather than pushing up against the force. This reduces strain and eliminates risk of injury to your back, neck, and shoulders caused by improper tightening. The ergonomic design also allows you to have better posture and form when tightening the strap, particularly when it is icy or snowy.

    • Reverse-Action Leverage: With less effort needed to tighten the reverse-action ratchet strap, users can get nearly twice as much tensioning power with equal or less force compared to standard straps, making the tightening process go much faster. The reverse-action ratchet also provides more gear clicks when tensioning the strap for better control and stability.

    • Quick Webbing Release: Lastly, each ratchet is constructed with a side knob that helps take-up or reduce the amount of webbing around the mandrel for quicker and easier webbing release.
