  2. How to Maintain Your Ratchet Strap

    Some of the most dependable securement straps to use when transporting cargo are Ratchet Straps. Unfortunately, due to sharp corners and constant rubbing these straps are usually some of the first items that need to be replaced. However, with proper care and minimal effort, a well-made ratchet strap can be utilized for years. Below are a few tips that we have put together on how to maintain your strap and keep it going.

    STORAGE:
    Keep your ratchet straps out of the sun.  If one of your ratchet straps gets wet or damp, allow it to dry thoroughly before storing it away to prevent mildew. Sunlight has ultraviolet light which has the ability to make the fibers in the strap incredibly brittle as well as discoloring them. As they break down they potentially lose their strength and durability.

    USAGE:
    When using straps, apply lubricating oil, such as dry silicone spray or WD-40 to keep the moving parts of the ratchet handle assembly working. One thing to always keep in mind is not to get the lubricant on the webbing, as it will attract dirt and eventually cause the strap to bind. Our Exaloy straps are double tagged to allow the working load limit to be seen and easily accessible from any angle.

    INSPECTION:
    Don't forget to always inspect the straps during and after use. Look for frayed fibers where a sharp edge may have come into contact with the strap. To prevent further damage from corners, use rubber corner strap protectors; they are cost-effective and protect not only the strap but the cargo you are transporting.
