Do All Ratchet Straps Have Hooks?

A vast array of different ratchet strap styles are available - and knowing which one to choose can be daunting if you’ve not bought any before. But with more than a decade of experience manufacturing ratchet straps at our facility in the UK, it’s safe to say that we know a thing or two about these different styles here at Taut Strap.

We’ve decided to put that experience to good use by answering one of the most commonly asked ratchet strap questions from those new to using the devices: do they all have hooks, or can you get ratchet straps without?

Not all ratchet straps have hooks

To answer this question directly, no - not all ratchet straps have hooks. You can buy endless ratchet straps, which do without hooks entirely. So, why do they exist - and what are they used for?

Endless ratchet straps have a variety of benefits and uses. In fact, they’re one of the most popular styles that we sell.

The benefits of endless ratchet straps

There are several important reasons why endless straps are often chosen over their hook-equipped counterparts.

  • Because they have no hooks on each end, they can be used to tie multiple items together in a bundle. If you have several smaller items that need to be secured together, an endless strap is the easiest way to get the job done.
  • Although hooks can be a convenient way to secure cargo, their sharp metal construction can cause damage to vulnerable cargo. If you need to secure particularly fragile items, endless ratchet straps are a safe bet, as they won’t cause any damage as they move around in transit.


It’s important to note that endless straps are available in the same varied selection of lengths, widths and strengths as regular straps. So, these benefits can apply to cargo of all shapes, sizes and weights.
