The 16' Ratchet Tie-Down features a durable 2" Hi-Test® webbing to absorb shock and to resist cut, rot and abrasion. It is constructed with a steel ratchet buckle, EZ release handles, and double J-hooks. 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, 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. Perfect for medium to large demanding cargos and applications.
