As you probably know, we're a big fan of The Ratchet Shop's ratchet straps. However, we know you need the best tool for the job at hand, which means that in some cases, an alternative strap may be more appropriate - such as a cam buckle strap.
We heard what you said about a cam buckle strap? Read on to find out more and whether they're the right choice for your next lifting or hauling job.
What is a cam buckle strap?
A cam buckle is essentially a lighter type of ratcheting strap commonly known as a tie-down strap.
Unlike ratchet straps, which use a ratchet to tighten the strap, cam buckle straps are tightened manually. While this makes it easier to maneuver, the cam buckle is therefore better for transporting and lifting lighter objects. This makes them ideal for transporting delicate items such as antiques.
In general, cam buckle straps should not be used to lift objects over 250kg, but in some cases heavy duty cam buckles can be used if the object weighs slightly more than this.
