If the webbing on your ratchet straps, cam straps or winch straps is showing signs of wear and tear, they need to be replaced. According to the Web Sling and Tie Down Association (WSTDA), web tie down straps should no longer be used if tears, holes, snags, cuts or embedded particles are evident that could raise doubt about the tie down’s strength. They should also be replaced if the work load limit (WLL) information is no longer visible on the webbing.
