What is a Load Binder
Ratchet Binders use ratcheting mechanism to create tension in the chain in order to safely secure the load.Get more news about load binder exporter

They have a handle, two tension hooks, a cam and prawl mechanism to create a smooth, ratcheting action. Its handle takes much less pulling force compared to Lever Load Binders.
When you using the lever and screw will work together to increase the force applied to the tie-down assembly. As a result, this will tension the chain tightly to secure the load.
WHAT ARE LEVER BINDERS ?
LEVER BINDERS HAVE A LEVER AND TENSION HOOK ON EACH END. THE LEVER CAN INCREASE THE FORCE WHEN APPLYING TO A TIE-DOWN.
THEY WILL REQUIRE MORE PULLING FORCE BECAUSE IT STORES ENERGY IN THE HANDLE. AS A RESULT IT IS THE LEAST SAFE OPTION DUE TO THE LEVER’S BUILT-UP TENSION WHEN YOU RELEASE IT.
ALTHOUGH THE LEVER CAN UNBIND QUICKLY TO UNLOAD YOUR CARGO, RATCHETS ARE CONSIDERED THE SAFEST OPTION DUE TO LESS BUILT-UP TENSION. THIS REDUCES THE RISK OF THE BAR SNAPPING BACK ON YOU.
CAN I USE AN EXTENSION BAR TO INCREASE TENSION ?
MANY WORKERS FIND THEY CANNOT GET SATISFACTORY CHAIN TENSION SO THEY OFTEN USE AN EXTENSION BAR TO INCREASE THE TENSION. THIS PRACTICE IS DANGEROUS BECAUSE THE EXTENSION BAR CAN REBOUND QUICKLY DURING TIGHTENING AND RELEASING AND MAY EVEN FLY INTO THE AIR.
Load binders are used with low loader chains to tighten and pull chains together when lashing down items. These are regularly used in the agriculture and transport industries for securing loads to trailers, making them easier to maneuver.
The load binder has a ratchet handle and two tension hooks on each end. Chains are attached to the hooks on the load binder while the ratchet mechanism allows you to tighten the binder chains incrementally so that items are securely tied down safely. It is a safer option over the lever binder as it does not store much energy in the handle, therefore, the risk of the bar recoiling or snapping is lower.
At The Ratchet Shop, our heavy-duty load chain binders are made from forged steel, which has been quenched and tempered for extra strength and comes in a painted finish. We stock a range of load binders to suit different size chains capable of securing loads of up to 18,000 kilos.
