A 2 inch ratchet tie down strap is specifically designed to hold loads in place on trucks, trailers, rail cars, ships, and other freight carriers. Their design allows you to stretch the strap across your cargo, then tighten it to hold everything in place.
When choosing the right tie down for your application, you will want to consider strap construction, length, and working load limit.
Our 2" tie down straps are made with industrial-grade polyester webbing that has been designed to minimize weathering and damage. It's resistant to stretching and wet conditions, so it will last longer for you.
Most straps are made using a webbing with a 12,000 lb. break strength - if you are looking for something stronger, check out our 2 inch heavy duty ratchet straps. Their premium polyester webbing has a break strength of 13,000 lbs.
Choosing a strap with the correct working load limit is essential.
Working load limit is defined as the maximum load a component or assembly should be subjected to during routine use. US Cargo Control strongly recommends the working load limit does not exceed 1/3 of the component and/or assembly breaking strength.
All of our 2" ratchet straps are labeled with their working load limit to meet CVSA guidelines, DOT regulations, and WSTDA and North American Cargo Securement standards.
Each end fitting option has different benefits that could make it the right choice for your setup.
Flat hooks can have a high working load limit and are compatible with most trailers.
Wire hooks are also known as double J-hooks. They can easily attach in hard to reach areas.
You get extra security with snap hooks - the hook will lock onto the anchor point.
Vinyl-coated S-hooks won't scratch or scuff your trailer or truck.
E-track ending fittings are compatible with E-track, allowing you to easily customize your setup.
An endless ratchet strap does not have an end fitting. Instead, it wraps around your cargo and threads back through the ratchet to form a loop. These are great for cargo bundling.
Protect your cargo when it is strapped in place with a corner protector - they are placed on the sides of your cargo to reduce friction on your tie down straps and to distribute the strap pressure over a wider surface area on the cargo.
Corner protectors are available in a variety of sizes and materials - whether you are hauling drywall, plywood, brick, or steel sheeting, we have something to meet your needs.
It is important to inspect your corner protector or your ratchet straps before use. You should never use a ratchet strap if it shows excessive abrasive wear, broken or worn stitching, holes, tears, cuts, snags, chemical burns, melted webbing, etc.
We can also customize ratchet straps to your needs with different end fittings, ratchet assemblies, and strap lengths. Reach out to our sales team or fill out our custom tie down form for more information.
