Chain Binders

Chain Binders can be known around the industry as Lever Chain Binders and are used to bind chains together when securing loads. Chain Binders work by utilizing chain binders that use pieces of chain to form a tight securement. Although chain binders ultimately have industry standards such as the most common being Grade 70 (G70) Transport Chain it can be customized such as the width and length of chain that is needed. Chain binders include a lever that is able to bring the two ends of the chain close together and secure cargo by locking the chains into place.

The second type of Chain Binder is known around the flatbed industry as a Ratchet Load Binder and is used to tighten the chain to hold your cargo into place. They are made from steel construction materials and include a handle that provides great leverage when tightening without the risk of becoming injured during tightening. These are some of the heaviest duty materials in the industry and are made to last.

Flatbed Load Straps

Flatbed Straps can consist of numerous different combinations of Tie Down Straps such as Ratchet Straps and Winch Straps that are designed to be specifically used for applications on flatbed trucks and flatbed trailers. Flatbed Load Straps are our heaviest duty straps in both weight securement limitations and the number of materials that are used to secure the cargo with. Our flatbed straps are made from polyester tie-down webbing that is used as it stretches very little when in use to help prevent load shifts or straps to fail.

Ratchet Straps – Ratchet Straps work by using a Ratchet Hardware Mechanism that with each wind of the handle the strap becomes tighter as the ratchet flows in one direction. Once the ratchet strap is to desired tightness the strap is locked into place and can not become weakened or untightened as the mechanism design flows only in one direction. When you arrive at the cargo’s final destination the cargo can be loosened in seconds simply by opening the handle completely and pulling the excess polyester webbing out from the ratchet. This is why Ratchet Straps are widely popular with professional shippers and truck drivers alike as they are extremely reliable.

Winch Straps – Winch Straps are one of the most common types of tie-down straps used for cargo securement on the back of Flatbed Trailers with the use of winch track systems that are installed along the sides of the flatbed trailers. Winch Straps can be placed inside of the rails of the flatbed trailers creating a simple to use and time-saving method to secure heavy-duty and oddly shaped cargo that normal tractor-trailers can not always secure cargo with.

Flatbed Winches

Flatbed Winches can be installed along the sides of a flatbed trailer and can be used to help secure oddly shaped cargo or some of the heaviest cargo on the road. Sliding Winch Track and Slider Winches are the main hardware that is installed to make winch straps able to secure the cargo at different securement points along with the flatbed. Sliding winches as the name implies are able to slide along the rails of the trailer allowing for secure placement of your winch straps to be extremely versatile in the securement locations to fit just about any load securement demands that are thrown at you on the road. We also have a selection of Winch Bars that make securing and releasing tie downs a breeze.

Transport Chains & Binders

Transport Chains and Binders are an extremely valuable asset when it comes to securing loads on the back of a flatbed trailer. We have many different options for Chain and Binders giving you various different Working Load Limits (WLL) depending on the strength your cargo securement requires. The most common chain we sell for the professional trucking industry by far is Grade 70 (G70 Chain) and is heat-treated to provide the ultimate strength for cargo securement.

Corner Protectors

Corner Protectors can be known around the industry as Strap Protectors, Corner Protectors, Tie Down Strap Covers, and Plastic Corner Protectors just to name a few of the many popular names. Corner Protectors play a part in the cargo securement for Flatbed Trailers by providing a protective edge material to protect your cargo as well as being able to protect your straps from sharp edges that could cause cuts and burn marks, or even straps to fail in certain circumstances.

Corner Protectors are one of the best ways to help prolong the lifespan of your tie-down straps to last even longer. By using corner protectors you can help your straps stay in like-new conditions by preventing friction from occurring. Some of the different types of corner protectors include 2-inch Rubber Corner Protector, 4-inch Plastic Corner Protectors, Deluxe Corner Protectors, and our popular Aluminum Sideboard for Blocks and Brick. Corner Protectors can be a difference-maker for those who ship often as a long-term investment for almost any tie-down strap or straps that are used often.

Oversize Load Flags & Safety Flags

Oversize Load Flags may also be called around the professional trucking industry Oversized Load Flags, Safety Flags, Oversized Signs, and Semi Safety Signs to name a few of the many different names around the flatbed industry. Oversize Load Flags are incredibly necessary when transporting certain loads of cargo to make other motorists sharing the roadways aware of your heavy or widely shaped cargo that could pose a danger if other motorists are not being careful.
