Chain Tensioner and Lashing Chain
What is a Lashing Chain Tensioner

A lashing chain tensioner, also known as a chain tensioner or a chain binder, is a mechanical device used to tighten and secure lashing chains when securing cargo during transportation. Its primary purpose is to provide tension to the chain, ensuring that the cargo remains stable and tightly held in place during transit.

Lashing chains are often used to secure heavy or oversized cargo on trucks, trailers, flatbeds, ships, or other cargo-carrying vehicles. These chains need to be tightened properly to prevent the cargo from shifting, sliding, or becoming loose, which could lead to accidents, damage, or loss of cargo.

The lashing chain tensioner typically consists of a ratcheting mechanism that allows the user to pull the chain through the tensioner and apply tension by leveraging the handle. This action tightens the chain around the cargo, creating a secure and stable hold.

The process of using a lashing chain tensioner involves the following steps:

  • Attach the lashing chain with hooks or connectors to anchor points on the cargo and the vehicle or transport structure.
  • Insert the other end of the lashing chain through the tensioner.
  • Begin ratcheting the tensioner by pulling the chain through the mechanism using the handle.
  • Continue ratcheting until the desired tension is achieved, securely holding the cargo in place.
  • Lock the tensioner in place to prevent it from loosening during transport.

It's essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for using lashing chain tensioners properly. Over-tightening or improper use can lead to equipment damage, and under-tightening can result in insufficient cargo securing.

Always ensure that the lashing chains, hooks, and tensioner used are appropriate for the weight and size of the cargo being transported. Additionally, make sure to comply with relevant safety regulations and best practices to ensure a safe and successful cargo transport operation.
