Beginner's Guide to Endless Ratchet Straps - How to Use

What is an endless ratchet strap?

Also known as an endless loop tie-down, endless ratchet straps use the same ratchets as standard ratchet straps. Endless ratchet straps can be more difficult to release. With that in mind, you may wonder why you would want to use an endless strap instead of a regular ratchet strap with a hook.

The benefit of this type of strap is that you can tie multiple bundles together more easily. The difference lies in their ability to bundle things together and create a loop around the cargo, which is something you cannot do with standard straps.

The strap is sewn to the back of the buckle and can be fed through the buckle and ratcheted tightly to create an endless loop.

How do you use an endless loop ratchet strap?

The endless loop ratchet strap can secure any size or shape of cargo. All you have to do is make sure the webbing is long enough to wrap around the load and that the break force and lashing capacity are suitable for the weight of the cargo. By combining the right technique and using other products, such as corner protectors, you can deliver loads securely and with confidence.

How do you thread an endless ratchet strap?

To thread an endless ratchet strap, follow these steps:

  1. Take the loose end of the webbing and wrap it around the cargo, and back to the ratchet.
  2. Feed the webbing through the mandrel on the ratchet. The mandrel is the lower slot on the buckle positioned at the bottom of the strap.
  3. If desired, you can put corner protectors in place (Optional).
  4. Hold the straps straight and ratchet until the webbing is tight.
  5. Lock the handle into place and secure excess webbing.

How do you use an endless ratchet strap?

When it comes to storing, make sure the strap material is clean and dry to keep it in good condition. To keep the strap neat, you can connect it with the buckle and roll it up. Take the tail end, wrap it around the strap, and feed it through the buckle. If you’re storing multiple straps together, this will ensure they don’t get tangled up and will be easy to retrieve and use next time.
