The Keeper® 12' Digital Camo Ratchet Tie-Down features a durable 1" Hi-Test® webbing to absorb shock and to resist rot and abrasion. It is constructed with a steel ratchet buckle with padded handles and vinyl covered S-hooks to prevent scratching and marring. The 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, pull webbing strap to desired tension leaving a bit of slack, then rachet by raising and lowering the handle. The webbing then locks into place to secure your cargo.
