Cam Buckle Straps for Cargo Securement

Cam Buckle straps are known around the professional shipping industry as Cam Buckle Straps, Cam Buckle Tie Down Straps, or Cam Buckles for short. These straps work similarly to how seatbelts work as you take the slack or excess tie down webbing and pull it through the cam buckle hardware and it is tightened to the desired strength by hand and when you release the cam buckle hardware it holds it in place. When you are done securing cargo and have arrived at your final destination there is a release mechanism on the cam buckle hardware that allows you to quickly remove the excess slack by pulling it out in the opposite direction as they were secured.

What are the main differences between Ratchet Straps vs Cam Buckle Straps? – Ratchet Hardware can be tightened by utilizing ratchet hardware that is designed to flow in one direction providing you with a much tighter securement. Cam Buckle Straps are tightened by using the amount of physical strength that you can pull through the cam buckle hardware in order to be tightened causing less of a chance for the cargo to become damaged from overtightening. Cam Buckles are traditionally one of the most preferred types of tie-down straps for professional movers as there is less chance of damage to the customer’s belongings or antiques.
