Should I Use a Ratchet Strap or Cam Buckle Strap?
What's the difference between ratchet straps and cambuckle straps and which option is right for you?
Ratchet straps can be tightened much more than cam buckle straps. The ratcheting action allows the user to crank the webbing of the strap around the ratchet's mandrel, using leverage and force to pull the strap very tight. This makes them the better option for securing large, heavy loads. E-track ratchet straps also have a higher break strength and working load limit.
E-track cam buckle straps are simpler and quicker. Their tension is more easily controlled, making them perfect for lighter cargo. Cam buckle E-track straps work by threading the webbing through the cambuckle, then making it taut by pulling the loose end of the webbing away from the cam buckle. Knurled grips on the cam buckle use friction to prevent the strap from loosening during transport.
E-Track Strap Construction
E-track cargo straps typically have color-coded polyester webbing for easy identification of length (yellow for 12', gray for 16', and blue for 20'). Each has a rated capacity and working load limit, so the consumer decides the best fit for each application:
- The rated capacity is the load the assembly can endure in a pull test performed by a testing facility for safety purposes.
- The working load limit is the maximum weight the assembly can be exposed to during daily use. This value should be one-third of the rated capacity.
E-Track Ratchet Strap Fixed End Length
The standard fixed end length for these ratchet straps is 4'. This length works well for most applications and is generally recommended unless you know you need another option. To accommodate situations where you need something shorter, we also offer fixed end lengths of 1' and 2'.

To make it easy for you to create the perfect setup, we offer a full line of E-track, E-track tie downs, and E-track tie down accessory options. This includes a wide range of E-track rope tie offs, spring E-fittings, shoring beams, and more.
E-track is commonly sold in 2', 5’, 8' and 10’ sections and is offered in powder-coated or galvanized finish. Horizontal E-track is the most popular option, but vertical E-track is also available. They are typically made from high strength 12 GA steel and may be attached with screws, rivets, or by welding.
In addition to E-track straps, other hardware fittings can be used to contain your cargo inside a trailer. Rope tie offs or spring E-fittings with D-rings are great to have and offer a quick snap-in way to create a tie down point. Wood end sockets can be used with dimensional lumber to create a wall or shelf system as well.
