A: Hi ConcernedCitizen, Thank you for expressing interest in our Keeper 16 ft. x 2 in. x 10,000 lbs. Ratchet Tie Down. This product is manufactured in China and Cambodia.
A: The hooks are painted steel. Only have about a week but the 4 times I used it haven’t scratched the paint. Seems very durable despite not being coated.
A: The Hooks on the 47370 are black painted, they are NOT vinyl coated.
A: It is certainly strong enough, but I think that it would be more efficient and economical to use 'bungy cords', elastic ropes with hooks at the ends. This ratchet tie down is more for keeping loads in place when transporting them.
A: Absolutely, hopefully you bought a heavy duty tarp. I’m not sure the hooks would fit into the grommet hole of your tarp as these are heavy duty straps
A: 3,333 lbs. WLL used for heavy-duty applications
A: I think so
A: I wouldn't use this strap for that application.
A: I am not an expert. I think that if 2 or 3 of these were to be used in the proper links (the ones that chains would be used in) it would probably work. The belts are much longer than tie-down chains, that would probably make that solution very cumbersome. I don't think that I would recomend lt.
A: Hi Aaron, Yes it should work for strapping down a car as long as you don't exceed the 3,333 lbs. working load limit.
A: Yes, I use them all the time to haul wrecked vehicles. I also use one heavy chain with load binder to make sure it can't roll off the trailer. I have never had one come loose. I hauled a Dodge Ram 1500 from Georgia to Michigan.
A: I am not sure what the law says for using ratchet straps to strap down a vehicle. But this strap has a 10,000 lb breaking strength but you are only suppose to ratchet down 3,000 lbs.
