Ratchet type Load Binder
A ratchet type load binder is a mechanical device used to secure cargo or loads on trucks, trailers, or other transportation vehicles. It is also known as a ratchet binder, cargo binder, or load tensioner.
The ratchet binder consists of a ratcheting mechanism with two hooks at each end. One end is connected to the anchor point on the truck or trailer, while the other end is connected to the load. The ratchet mechanism is used to tighten the binder, creating tension on the load and securing it in place.
The advantage of using a ratchet binder over other types of load binders is that it allows for greater control over the tension applied to the load. The ratcheting mechanism makes it easy to adjust the tension as needed and to release the binder when the load needs to be unloaded.
However, it is important to use the ratchet binder properly to avoid over-tightening and damaging the load or the equipment. It is also important to inspect the binder regularly for signs of wear or damage and to replace it if necessary.
