It is important to inspect the straps for fray and wear as a result of things like friction or sun damage - be mindful of any strap that shows damage, it’s likely that it will need to be discarded and replaced. The trailer tie-down straps should be mounted between two sturdy anchor points while keeping in mind that the strap can only support the load if the car trailer tie-down points are capable of supporting that amount of weight
When using the car ratchet strap mechanism, feed the end of the strap through the mechanism and back towards the hook (the strap end attached first, followed by the ratchet end). Ensure there are no twists in the car trailer tie-down straps.
Put a little tension in the strap and inspect where it lies for any sharp edges or anything else that may damage the strap - if anything looks concerning, place something between the strap and the sharp edge - for example, a corner protector which is available in the Lock and Load product range. Make sure to also check that the strap doesn’t cause any damage to the load courtesy of pressure when it’s fastened. When your inspection is done, use the ratchet to tighten the strap to the final required level of tension.
When it comes to a technique for releasing our car ratchet straps, you simply need to use the two provided release trigger mechanisms. First, pull the top trigger back and raise the ratchet halfway, releasing the trigger back into place, then apply some pressure to the ratchet handle and simultaneously using your other hand pull the second release lever inside the ratchet mechanism holding it back.
You can then slowly lower the ratchet handle to ease the tension on the strap. Repeat this step until the strap is loose, at which point both release levers can be used to free up the mechanism and completely remove the strap.

What Materials Are Used To Make Lock & Load Tie-down Kits?
Lock & Load Transport’s strap kits are designed for rugged use - we understand the type of environment and terrain our clientele are exposed to. The straps are made of high tensile strength materials while ratchets are made of strong polymer that can withstand high-pressure loads. The car trailer ratchet straps come in luminous green for easy use in low light and our kits are specifically designed to be resistant to scratching, fraying and cutting. Our Truck Ratchet straps also have reflective stitching which will make it obvious to the driver if there are any loose ends.
