Transport Chain & Binders


These are a great asset when it comes to securing loads. We have many different options and Work Load Limits (WLL) depending on your needs. The Grade 70 (G70) is heat treated for maximum strength and meet all requirements of the Department Of Transport (DOT) for truck tie down use. We have 5/16” Transport Chain, 3/8” Transport Chain, and 1/2” Transport Chain. We also have Chain Binders which are a great accompaniment when you are securing cargo. We carry both Ratchet Load Binders and Lever Load Binders for whatever situation you need.
