Not sure which load binder to use when securing your load for transport?
Watch our video or Read More to find out some of the features of Ratchet Binders and how you can safely operate and put them to use for your application.
Ratchet load binders provide more of a mechanical advantage and are a safer option than using lever load binders when securing a load. They have been one of the most popular choices for securing heavy machinery due to their simplistic design, affordable cost, and durability.
According to the General Cargo Securement requirements, the sum of the working load limits from all tie-downs must be at least fifty percent of the weight of the cargo.
Our Standard Ratchet Binder is powder coated red and features drop forged binder chain hooks with size and grade markings forged into the hooks.
The binder is available in two different sizes, a 9,200 lbs model and a 13,000 lbs model with working load limits that are matched to Grade 70 transport chain.
The Peerless Ratchet Binder Plus is powder coated yellow and features zinc plated drop forged binder chain hooks for greater corrosion protection.
It is available in three sizes, a 7,100 lbs model, a 12,000 lbs model, and the 18,100 lbs model which can be used with either grade 70 transport chain or Grade 80 alloy tie-down chains.

Removing the Binder
Unwrap the chain and turn the pawl to the 'out' setting.
Begin ratcheting the binder until the chain becomes slack and the binder hooks can be removed from the chain.
