Cam Buckle Straps

Cam Buckle Straps can also be known as Cam Buckle Tie Downs or Cam Buckle Tie Down Straps are one of the most widely used forms of tie-down straps in the cargo securement and professional trucking industries. One of the reasons that make Cam Buckle Straps so great is that cargo is unable to be over tightened as Cam Buckles can only be tightened as tight as you can pull them into place. Cam Buckle Straps can be found within our website with many different options such as the cut to desired length and color of polyester tie down webbing.

Cam Buckle Straps are available in many different hardware options such as E Track Fittings, Vinyl Coated S Hooks, Endless Loop Cam Buckle Straps, and Flat Snap Hooks just to name a few of the many different popular Cam Buckle Straps. Cam Buckle Straps typically come in the lengths of 12 feet, 16 feet, and 20 feet lengths of polyester tie down webbing. However, if you need it cut to a custom length our tie down experts might be able to make it custom made to order for you. If you need it custom made please contact our tie down experts at 800-444-0956 or by using our online contact form located here.

Cam Buckles can come in the sizes of 1 inch Cam Buckles and 2 inch Cam Buckles as the two main sizes. Some of the options for our 1 inch Cam Buckles include S hooks, Wire Hooks, and E Track fittings to name a few and are used for more lighter weight cargo. 2 inch Cam Buckle Straps are used for the heavier cargo applications and come with Flat Snap Hooks, Wire Hooks, S Hooks, and E Track fittings as the most popular types of hardware options.

Both sizes of Cam Buckles come with polyester tie down webbing that helps to fight against stretching from occurring that could risk your cargo securement from being secured. Unlike nylon webbing polyester webbing stretches very little and can help prevent UV rays from the sun damaging your tie down straps as well.

What are Cam Buckle Straps?

A Cam Buckle is a piece of hardware that allows for the tightening of excess slack from tie down webbing to be locked into place. Cam Buckles work similar to seatbelt where the slack is pulled right by the force of your hand and the teeth securely lock into place once the webbing is at its desired strength and is prevented from sliding backward.

Once your cargo has arrived at its final destination to unlock or release the Cam Buckle mechanism is extremely easy simply open and this allows the slack to be pulled out in the opposite direction. Once the webbing is completely pulled out of the cam buckle you are ready to be able to store the cam buckle for the next move and repeat the steps above to secure again.

The main difference between most tie down straps and cam buckles the way that they are secured by using the force of your own strength to tighten the cargo where most tie down straps use ratchets that are hand tighten until desired tightness. However, one of the perks of using Cam Buckles Straps is cargo typically doesn’t become damaged as they can only be secured by using hand strength. This is different from our other straps that use a ratchet handle that may secure well past hand strength and could cause some real damage to your cargo if you are not careful in doing so.
