Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan Works flawlessly like a well lubricated machine
This product is solid steel from end to end. The gripper, drum, cutting mechanism or the handle, all feels sturdy and work flawlessly like a well lubricated machine. The operation requires no learning curve as it works just as any other industry standard tensioner. I’ve used it with all supported sizes (up to 0.75” max strap) and it delivered consistently. Just don’t run the ratchet wheel dry and it will last you years.
The manufacturer says it’s made in USA and the box says its Taiwan made so I am not sure what country it’s made in.
Overall, it’s a great tool and a great companion for your retail shipments.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BathtubBOB Tough tool.
I had the opportunity to evaluate this product. I have used it daily for over two weeks and find it downright fantastic. It is very well built, easy to use, sturdy and even is nicely finished.
I have used as similar item that was cheaper but dismal to load and would not hold. This unit holds tight allowing you to use your crimper ( Not included with tool) to fasten your plastic banding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sammie Super handy tool
I am so glad I have this tool. I always wondered how they got those straps on boxes. I was able to use this when I had to return a heater. It worked easily and I was impressed! I could have used this so many times in the past. Really easy to use, first you put the strap around the box and then load the two ends into the tensioner and then ratchet it until tight and cut. It couldn't be easier!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulCoMat A very high quality good looking tensioner
Strapping tensioner will easily handle up to 3/4 inch plastic strapping.This is a very high quality good looking tensioner that any shipping department can be proud of. Heavy cast metal body and handle. The rest of the parts are machined and top quality. I tested the strap cutter for sharpness and spacing using standard 20lb paper and it cut nice and smooth. I use a ½" heavy plastic strap and it cut through it like butter. One would have to be conscious not to over tighten with this tool.
