To Tension - Pull the webbing through the spindle bar to take up the slack.

- Move the handle backwards and forwards until the webbing is correctly tensioned.

- The webbing must be wound at least two times around the spindle to prevent any slipage.
To Release - Pull back the prawl and rotate the ratchet handle over the centre to a full open position.

- The webbing can now be pulled free.

Capacity Ratings

- Working loads or capacity ratings are half of breaking strength for all of our ratchet systems.

- All ratings are based on a straight tensile pull. Any load directions other than straight can result in a significant reduction in break strength.

- Also to maintain break strength rating the securing points to which the ratchet assembly is attached must be of equal or greater strength.

- All ratings are for products in new condition.

- Damage, wear and age can greatly reduce the strength of your ratchet assembly, so inspection prior to every use is highly recommended.


- Ratchet assemblies MUST be protected when used on rough or sharp objects or surfaces.

- All worn, deformed or damaged products should be removed from use immediately and replaced.

- As these products are probably used outdoors where they will come into contact with dirt, mud, snow, ice, road salt and other chemical pollutants and solvents, it is necessary to inspect the product, clean and even lubricate the ratchet body to ensure that it is all in good working order.

- Failure to follow recommended guidelines may result in injury or damage as will failure to evaluate suitablility of the ratchet assembly for the users particular application.

- Every load should be secured with at least TWO ratchet assemblies.

- Ratchet assemblies should not be used for lifting or towing.
