The Excess Tie-down Strap Coiling Assembly is a ratchet strap with an integral device to store excess strap to protect it from damage.
Inventor Terry Waters, Jr. of Kaukauna, WI has created a ratchet strap with an integral device to store excess strap to protect it from damage.
Ratchet clamp down straps for moving and securing objects are indispensable when compared to regular ropes. These straps provide a large amount of holding force, are easily tightened and loosened, and remain safely secured even when subject to vibration, weather elements, and shifting loads. However, as useful as these ratchet straps are, the excess strap material is difficult to restrain during transport. Many people tie the strap material onto itself, but the nylon strap material tends to become easily untied. Should the strap material be left to fly about, it can easily become damaged by flapping in the wind or it can drag on the pavement. This material could even be completely cut off, should the wheels of the vehicle run over it. Inventor Waters has created a means by which excess strap material from ratchet straps can be easily restrained without these issues.
This clever new invention is for use with ratcheting cargo straps. It winds up excess strap material. It protects a strap from dragging on the pavement or other damage. It saves time, money, and aggravation. The device is durable and long lasting. The use of the Excess Tie-down Strap Coiling Assembly ensures that loose ends of ratcheting cargo straps are secured, thus protecting them from damage in a manner which is quick, easy, and effective.
