Chain Binder or Load Binder, these two terms are used interchangeably. A chain tensioning device used to bind, clamp, anchor or tie down large cargo loads for transport is what a binder is. Our range of ratchet load binders is available in standard as well as customized sizes.

The Ratchet Binder device uses a ratcheting action to tension chain and secure cargo. It provides powerful load binding and the ratcheting motion of the binder easily draws the ends together, providing maximum tension with minimal effort. We also carry AS4344 ratchet load binder, EN12195-3 g80 ratchet load binder. Lever Load Binder device uses a leverage action to tighten and secure loads. With a tension hook on each end, this binder requires more strength to tighten than ratchet binders. Hand wheel load binder can be used as a wire rope accessory or chain accessory in offshore oil engineering, lifting tugboats and other extreme environments. A tension Lashing Lever is used for the binding of containers, vehicles and other goods in the process of shipping.

How to Choose a Chain Binder?

First choose your preferred style of Chain Binder - Lever load binder or ratchet load binder?


Once you have decided on your preferred style, it is time to decide on the size. Both types are designed to fit the specified sizes of Grade 80, Grade 70 and Grade 43 chains, so it is important to know the grades and sizes of the chains you are using. Each load binder is marked with a specification (interval) where the smaller test value represents the size of the Grade 70 chain and the larger value represents the size of the Grade 43 chain required.


For example, size 3/8'' - 1/2'', 3/8'' is for Grade 70 chains and 1/2'' is for Grade 43 chains. technically, it is possible to use both 3/8'' or 1/2'' Grade chains, but if you use them with 1/2'' Grade 70 chains, the load binder will be weaker than the chains, making the load binder the weakest part of the component.


So if you are using 1/2'' grade 70 chains, it is best to use them with 1/2'' - 5/8'' load binders so that the chains and load binder are equally strong.

The strength of a component depends on its weakest link.

What is a Chain Binder?

What is a Chain Binder?

A Chain Binder is a device for tightening a chain when securing a load to be transported, also known as a load binder, and is generally available as a ratchet load binder or a lever load binder. fittings, with a handle and two tension hooks at each end. This load binder is easier to adjust in finer increments and does not have the same kickback effect or recoil as the Lever load binder. The Lever load binder uses leverage to create tension on the chain and stores kinetic energy in its handle. These load binders are easier to fit because they have fewer moving parts, but generally require more force to tighten them.

The Difference Between Ratchet Load Binder And Lever Load Binder


There is a difference in price between the Ratchet load binder and the Lever load binder, with the Lever load binder usually being the more economical option.


The Ratchet load binder uses a ratchetmechanism to create tension on the chain and hold the load in place. the ratchet type is usually considered the safer option as it is designed not to store as much energy in the handle, reducing the risk of handle backlash or this section. It has a ratchet handle with two tension hooks at either end. ratchet load binder is also called ratchet chain.


The Lever load binder on the other hand uses leverage to tighten the chains and hold the load, it has a tension hook at each end. the Lever load binder is simple in design and easier to fit. The Lever load binder is also known as a Lever chain or snap binder, as it stores energy in the handle and is more difficult to tighten as it requires more force.
