When it comes to truck load tie down , the ratchet strap and winch strap are playing a huge role in tying down load , ratchet tie down can be used inside the box trucks and on the flat beds , in the mean time winch straps commonly are used with flatbed exclusively . And truck tie downs are much more than just ratchet straps and winch straps , such as there are transport chains , chain binders, e track straps , and much more .
We’re not going to talk about regular tie downs but the reflective straps which have two reflective strips on the webbing , in dark environment the reflective strips can be seen from long distance , this sounds like a nice feature, I think it will be. Let’s consider this, even slight improve on the risk should encourage people to get the reflective ratchet straps. We’re just getting started with reflective ratchet strap and winch strap , we can’t say for sure how the benefits will be, but common sense tells us that if people can easily see the straps on the truck in low light, it’s not likely we will hit the target due to bad sight.
Here we are going to see the most important feature of the reflective tie downs, the price, get online you will find a lot of interesting information, it’s just a easy search away for you to figure out that the reflective ones are about 10% more expensive then non reflective ones, tie down straps are usually sold at $10-$12, so 10% will increase the price a bit , it doesn’t sound too expensive to me, say you buy 10 straps the price difference is about $20, since these straps can be used for quite some time, the common knowledge tells us the time frame will be 6 months or even longer, you almost spend nothing to get the security feature offered by reflective tie downs! Its definitely worthwhile to get the reflective ones!
