How to Use and Thread the Cam Buckle Strap
Like ratchet straps, cam buckle straps are great for securing loads. But the method of tightening with a cam buckle makes you less likely to over-tighten and damage the cargo. The cam buckle is tightened by pulling on the belt rather than a ratcheting action, so only tighten the belt as far as your strength allows. Cam straps are great for securing cargo on pallets, trailers or trucks, but they're also great all-purpose straps for use around the home, shop, garage, farm, and more. The infinity cam buckle is a one-piece design for easy use and storage
How to Thread a Ratchet Strap
To put on the ratchet strap, first open the ratchet a little so you can access the spool. Now you slide the strap over the spool and rewind it back. At this point, pull on the strap to remove any excess slack. Once all the slack is removed, you can start adjusting to the tension you want, keeping the belt straight. Once the desired tension is achieved, lock the ratchet in the closed position. To release the strap, open the ratchet fully so that it lies completely flat. Once it's flat, it's in the release position. Come on, pull your straps out. In some cases, you may not need the strength of a ratchet strap. In these cases, you will use a cam buckle. Cam straps come with a variety of accessories: butterfly fittings, electronic rail fittings, f rail hooks, and spring electronic fittings, handlebar straps with s hooks, flat spring hooks, and s hooks. Cam buckles are usually available in 1" and 2" sizes.
How to Thread a Cam BuckleTo put on the cam clasp, turn the cam clasp over and feed the strap back while pressing the thumb release. While pressing the thumb release button, pull the strap to
the desired tension and release. To remove the strap, press the thumb button and pull on the strap. You don't have to pull out the straps all the way, just reach your cargo. When choosing between a ratchet strap and a cam buckle, it often comes down to workload constraints, or how fragile the product is. If it's something light and fragile, choose a cam buckle, as you can't over-tighten and possibly crush the product. If it's heavier and less fragile, a ratchet strap is usually a better choice.
