Don't Miss Our New Import Tarp Straps
Not only do we have the best deals going on at the end of the month, but we have just started selling our new Import Tarp Straps. With a crimped 'S' hook these are available in 9", 15", 21", 31" and 41". We have both EPDM and Natural Rubber, so whether you haul in a warm or cool climate, we have something to help you secure your load.
One of the most commonly used items in a truck drivers arsenal is the winch strap. With the need to tie down the cargo that is being transported this product has become an invaluable asset. Without the means to secure and control a freight load all else is mute.
Tarpstop stocks some of the better quality and lower priced straps in the industry in Exaloy Cargo Control. The four inch winch straps are rated for a 5,400# WLL. They are polyester woven with a resin coating. Some of the unique features pertaining to Exaloy straps is that they double tag each strap. This includes a polyester tag and a Tyvek tag. Most winch straps will only be outfitted with a polyester tag which is standard among manufacturers. The Tyvek tags that Exaloy has added, to make a double tagged strap, creates a puncture-proof, water-proof and mildew resistant tag aiding in tag life length. Exaloy straps also have a deep dark stencil. Both of these features are designed to keep your straps legal, longer.
This is one product that has proven it's worth time and time again. With the Exaloy straps in use you are guaranteed a quality product at an affordable price. To learn more about them contact one of our locations below.
June 6th through 8th is sure to be an interesting time. The CVSA will be conducting its 30th annual International Roadcheck. Make sure that all your tags are properly showing their load limits and that everything is strapped down correctly. They will be checking everything from brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft, exhaust systems and more. This year the CVSA will have a heavy focus on cargo securement. That was also the focus in the 2015 Roadcheck and more than 2,000 citations were issued.
Inspectors from the CVSA will primarily be conducting the North American Standard Level I Inspection, which is the most thorough roadside inspection. It is a 37-step procedure that includes an examination of both driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness. International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 17 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute in Canada, the United States and Mexico during a 72-hour period. Since its inception, more than 1.5 million roadside inspections have been conducted during International Roadcheck campaigns.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
- In Canada, any sort of damage to the strap such as cuts or wears is a violation.
- Knots are not acceptable! Tie downs along with other securing devices must be secure.
- Make the tag visible! If it is not visible, it’s out of service.
- Always use a rated strap as your main source of cargo securement.
