Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps, otherwise known as ratchet lashings, tie-down straps or cargo securing straps are used for securing loads for the purpose of
transportation, this is normally to a flatbed truck or trailer. Typically each unit comes in two-parts and connects to then tighten and bind the load to the
floor using grab hooks, some models however are single-part (endless) and do not contain any hooks since they are designed to bind around 360-degrees.
