Frequently Asked Tie Down Strap Questions

What Should I Do with Excess Tie Down Webbing? – The best way to get rid of excess tie-down webbing after your strap is tightened to the desired strength is to wrap the tie-down webbing around the tie-down strap to avoid friction from rubbing against the excess webbing that could cause friction burns. Friction burns occur when tie-down webbing rubs against a sharp edge, corner, or movement against cargo causing burns to weaken tie-down webbing. Excess Tie Down webbing can also cause tie-down hardware to jam if you are not careful when tightening hardware such as a Ratchet.

How Many Tie Down Straps Do I Need? – In general you should always have AT LEAST four different tie-down securement points in order to avoid load shifts from cornering, a quick stop, a sudden lane change, or a fast acceleration. Load shifts can happen often and are one of the number one ways to break tie-down straps as extra weight can stretch the webbing too far causing it to fail.

How Do I Find What My Tie Down Straps are Safely Rated For? – You can find out what your tie-down straps are rated for by looking for the tag on each one of your tie-down straps. If your straps do not have a label or a tag on the strap showing you the weight limitations it is often illegal to be on the road as well as extremely dangerous to do so. Working Load Limit (WLL) tags should always be present on tie-down straps as it shows you what your straps can safely secure without the risk of straps snapping or your cargo coming unsecured during transportation.

Warning WARNING: Do not ever exceed the working load limit of any strap at anytime. Remember the assembly is only as strong as its weakest link and should be inspected before every use.
