Ratchet straps are tie-down straps that have various uses, generally involving the holding down of equipment or cargo when it is being transported. They can be used for jobs like securing loads to vehicles or keeping construction materials in place. 


Also known as tie-down straps, lorry straps, lashing straps or cargo straps, simply put, they are durable webbing that has been equipped with appropriate hardware for tying things down safely and securely. 

Pick The Perfect Ratchet Straps For Your Project

At The Ratchet Shop, we stock a wide selection of ratchet straps to suit your needs, whether for commercial or domestic use. Our extensive range of ratchet straps are commonly used in the construction, farming and agricultural industries. However, they are just as handy at home when used in domestic situations, such as tying down equipment to the roof of your vehicle, securing sheds in high weather and sealing hot bins. They can be used to straighten damaged trees, secure goods up against your garage wall to save space or even child proof hazards like hot tub lids and swimming pool covers. 


To help you choose the right ratchet strap for your needs, we have divided our range into two different sections: 

Lightweight Ratchet Straps

We stock a variety of lightweight ratchet straps, which are ideal for less-intensive work. These can be used for small pallets, tying down small vehicles like motorbikes or securing to a roof rack or in a van. They have a maximum weight load limit of 3,000kg or less. Available in a variety of styles, from mini-ratchets to auto-retractable ratchets, all of our ratchet straps are made from 100% polyester, making them lightweight and hard-wearing. Take a look at our full range of lightweight ratchet straps to find the perfect solution for you. 

Heavy Duty Ratchet Straps

We also have a range of heavy-duty ratchet straps which are designed for tougher transportation and tie-down jobs. Our heavy-duty ratchet straps offer maximum weight limits of between 4,000kg to 10,000kg and again, come in a range of styles including j-hooks and D-rings.

Why Choose Our Ratchet Straps?

All of our ratchet straps are made from durable, hard-wearing 100% polyester webbing. This makes them tough, flexible andlong lasting; key elements that give you peace of mind that your load is secure.


Another important feature of our ratchet straps is ease-of-use. One-hand fastening and a quick-release mechanism make tightening and loosening the strap simple, which is great for those times when you just need to get the job done! 


To make it even easier to find the correct strap for the job, each part of the lashing assembly is marked with the manufacturer's mark, size, length and ID mark, so that you can find the right tool more easily. Plus, for complete peace of mind, all of our ratchet straps conform to EN 12195-2:2001 safety performance requirements.
