How do you choose tie down strap to fit your needs
Here are three things to look for when choosing a ratchet tie-down strap for your needs. -Breaking strength/Working Load Limit. These straps have a guaranteed break strength of various rated capacity, with a working load limit. -Grip Design/Ease of Use -Length and Width of Strap.
Strap size is related to strength, but is also a factor related to the size of the load. A 12 foot strap won’t secure a 14 foot load. A one-inch wide strap might offer plenty of security but could be rough on a more delicate load, wearing a groove or otherwise compressing where you regret it. Make sure the size of your strap meets your needs.
Each ratchet-based tie-down strap should have a breaking strength rating, and the working load limit is about 1/3 of breaking strength. A strap that breaks at 1000 pounds is able to safely hold a 300 pound load. Match your load security needs with the strap rating, and use the working load limit as your guideline.
Two common types of tie down strap Two common types of tie-down straps are loop straps and two-piece straps. Loop straps, like their name implies, are a single piece of webbing that is looped around your item to be protected and the two endpoints are brought together at the tie-down fastener for fastening and providing tension.
