A ratchet strap in its most basic form is made up of 3 different pieces, industrial grade webbing, a ratchet handle and an end fitting (of which there are a huge variety of). Four main types of handles can be fitted to the ratchet mechanism; Short Wide, Long Wide, Short Narrow & Long Narrow. The webbing that is fitted can vary in width and colour; the fittings that are available are Claw Hooks, S-Hooks, Snap Hooks or Delta Links. They’re used for securing loads and can have varying lashing capacities.
All our Ratchet Fittings allow you to make your own ratchet straps by sewing the fitting securely into the webbing.
Claw Hooks – Our Claw hooks are available with varying widths and breaking loads, from 1.5 to 10 ton. The width of your webbing will determine which size hook you use. Our products are either zinc plated or stainless steel, which give a great finished look.
Snap Hooks – We have two types of Snap Hooks, Flat and twisted. These are ideal for securing loads to a vehicle where the attachment point is orientated differently. Snap hooks also have a safety catch to prevent loss of the ratchet whilst in transport.
Delta & Dee Links – These products are triangle or D shaped. Our Links also come in a range of widths and breaking loads depending on your needs, the zinc plated finish gives excellent corrosion resistance.
S Hooks – Our S Hook is suitable for use with 25mm webbing. They have a breaking load of 600KG and have a plastic coated finish.
Our 35MM 3T Zinc Plated Claw Hook, ideal for webbing.
Our Ratchet Handles are supplied in a range of widths, breaking loads and either zinc plated or stainless steel material. These are great for use as spares to replace any broken parts you may have on your current ratchet straps. The webbing is attached to the ratchet, so when you need to tighten the ratchet, you’ll have the security you require.
Our Wide Ratchet Handle which gives you a firm grip whilst in use.
