3 Inch Heavy Duty Ratchet Straps

What is a ratchet strap?

A ratchet strap, also called lashing strap, tie down strap or tie down, is an assembly of a ratchet handle with a strap made of Polyester or Nylon. Made of Polyester, this 3 inch heavy duty ratchet strap enables low elongation and low creep to avoid the load on the truck bed to move. Ideal for securing loads for transit on flatbed trucks, in vans and lorries, etc. 

The selection of the heavy duty lashing straps is available in two styles - 1-Piece and 2-Part. 
1-Piece Version: A web is stitched on to a ratchet handle assembly. 
2-Part Version: Manufactured by stitching a ratchet strap hook (claw hook) onto a length of tie down webbing. Another hook and web are stitched on to a ratchet handle assembly. 

Other end fittings (hooks) and individual prints on webbing are available on request. Fast Delivery and International Shipment.
