Typical Tie Down Straps include below 3 types:
1. Lashing Straps
Lashing Straps feature an easy-to-use clip, and are generally the lightest-duty tie-down strap with a maximum of 100lbs working load and 200lbs break force. They are designed for use on cargo carriers, luggage fastening, and other small loads.
2. Cam Buckle Straps
Cam Buckle Straps are generally lighter-duty than ratchet straps but heavier-duty than lashing straps. They are designed for use with medium-sized loads such as motorcycle and ATVs, and can have up to a 750lbs working load and 1,500lbs breaking force. They are easy and quicker to tighten and release than a ratchet strap, and more popular for home application.
3. Ratchet Straps
Ratchet Straps are named for their method of locking and securing the strap via an easy-to-use ratcheting system. Normally Ratchet Straps can have a working load limit up to 5,500lbs and a 11,000lbs break force rating, and can create a tighter and more secure restraint – ideal for solid, heavy loads.
- Bungee Cords, also known as shock cords and elastic belt, are another kind of tie down products. They are better suited to light-duty applications such as hanging a tarp or tying up small items for storage.
