Tension and lashing straps are designed to be used to stow the load in a non-slip manner when transporting it by car or trailer. The belts are available in different versions. Narrower tension straps are usually approved and available for transport by car.
All lashing and tension straps are generally available in the form of ratchet straps. By means of a tensioning ratchet, both parts of the belt are connected to each other, the belt ends fitted with hooks are carefully anchored in the fastening eyelets provided and then the belt is strapped tightly to the load by tensioning. Slipping of the belt or the load is therefore no longer possible. Loosening the operating lever loosens the belt again and enables the two parts to be separated. The ratchet system and the two-part belts thus offer the ultimate advantage of individually adjustable transport securing. This means that the right belt can be used for every item being transported.
