Load Securement Products for Rigging Equipment
Load securement, also known as tie-down or load binding, can be a complex rigging application that often has strict specifications and regulations. We offer a number of load securement products, including load binders, binder chain assemblies and tie-down hooks, that help you safely secure loads for transport as well as meet federal, state and Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) regulations.
Load Binders are typically used to take up slack and apply tension to a tie-down system. Designed primarily for use with graded chains, they can also be used with cable, steel strap or fiber webbing to secure loads in a variety of applications. Load binders are available in two general configurations: Lever-type (over the center) and Ratchet-type. CM load binders are rated by working load limit and are provided with the appropriate hooks to accept the chain size and grade consistent with the binder’s load rating.
Binder Chain Assemblies
Binder Chain Assemblies are most often used to secure loads to trucks, rail cars or truck trailers. They typically consist of a length of chain ranging from 6 to 26 feet in length with a grab hook at each end. The grab hook can be clevis style or eye style depending on your application. Standard binder chain assemblies are available in Grades 30, 43, 70, 80 and 100.
Tie-down Hooks come in various grades, designs and installation types. Both clevis and eye style tie-down hooks are high-quality forgings made here in the U.S. The clevis style hook is most popular because of the ability to self-install with limited need for tools. The eye style hook is typically factory installed during a welding process, but is beneficial in that it protects against loss or theft of the hook.
