The Keeper® 12' Blaze Camo Ratchet Tie-Down features a durable 1" nylon webbing to absorb shock and to resist rot and abrasion. It is constructed with a steel ratchet buckle with ergonomic molded handles and vinyl covered S-hooks to prevent scratching and marring. Operation is simple and straightforward. The ratchet buckle is designed with a rotating gear and lever mechanism latch to tighten and secure your load. To engage, thread the webbing through the center slot of the rotating spool, then pull through to desired tension leaving a bit of slack, and lastly, rachet by raising and lowering the handle. The webbing then locks into place to secure your cargo.
