The cam buckle uses a cam buckle with a clip similar to a belt. Once the belt is pulled over and the cam buckle is released, the belt will be fixed in place. It is ideal for lightweight goods or fragile goods. Ideally, cam buckles are one of the most commonly used belts for porters who deal with customers and may lose repeat customers if their valuables are damaged beyond repair.
One of the few disadvantages of using a cam buckle belt is that, unlike a ratchet belt or winch belt, it is not fully suitable for the heaviest cargo weight, such as a professional truck transport flat plate. This is one of the disadvantages of ensuring that you are tighter than the force of the webbing. You can easily pull through goods weighing more than thousands of pounds or more through the webbing. One of the main differences between a cam buckle belt and a ratchet belt is the amount of force used to tighten the webbing. The ratchet belt uses a ratchet that flows in one direction. It can tighten the goods, but it must not allow the goods to loosen unless the tension on the ratchet handle is manually unlocked. The cam buckle uses hardware called an alligator clip to bite the webbing to lock the tie-down webbing in place. The strength of the webbing ultimately depends on how tight you can tighten the goods by hand, so if you plan to use a heavier load, use ratchet belts or alternatives. On average, if your cargo is more than 750 pounds and you are using a commercial flatbed trailer, you should immediately consider using ratchet belts or winch belts. Ratchet and winch belts are designed for securing the heaviest goods, while cam buckles are designed for light to medium goods.
