Ergonomically designed to secure bottled gases and other sensitive and specialized cargo, our patented gear drive tensioner with gradual strap tensioning and release provides more control than a ratchet buckle. Locking the 2-in. strap in place every 1/28th of a spool rotation, the worm gear self-locks against back drive to stay closed. The folding handle locks the gear system and tension when folded over, and magnetic detent holds it closed.
