Interesting Cargo Control Product Information

Posted by Ken Webb on

Did You Know?
  • Current designs of Aluminum Flat Bed Trailers tend to bend & flex as they travel down the road creating slack in chains and straps requiring more frequent re-tightening and causing premature tie down wear.
  • Putting a half twist on the hardware side of a flat bed strap can limit the 'flutter burn' caused when straps are inadequately tightened and vehicles reach highway speeds.  It is not uncommon for straps that are affixed, go up, over and down the load to be difficult to fully tighten, UNLESS PROPERLY DESIGNED CORNER GUARDS are utilized.  This half twist can prevent premature strap wear at the point above the hardware where the strap comes in contact with the vehicle.  Please contact RatchetStrap.com with any questions!
