Plastic Edge Protectors and Corner Protectors

Corner and edge protectors are designed to protect your cargo, strap assemblies or chain tie downs from excess wear. These plastic edge protectors also lessen wear and tear on tarps. Edge protectors can be used when hauling products such as drywall and insulation to help from crushing forces with a tightened ratchet strap or winch strap.

According to FMCSA §393.104(f)(4), "Edge protection must be used whenever a tie down would be subject to abrasion or cutting at the point where it touches an article of cargo. The edge protection must resist abrasion, cutting and crushing."

We carry plastic edge and corner protectors from trusted brands Veeboards™ and Ancra X-Treme Guard™.

Edge protectors help by spreading out the load over the edge being protected thus eliminating crushed edges. Edge protectors also help protect your ratchet strap and winch strap assemblies from facial wear from abrasive products like brick and block.

Simply place your edge protector between your strap assembly and the sharp or abrasive edge and you have just protected and prolonged the life of your ratchet strap and winch strap assemblies.

Sharp corners will shred your tarps, quickly turning your tarp into scrap material. The use of corner protectors on those sharp corners will help increase the longevity of your lumber, steel, machinery, or smoke tarp.

Protective Sleeves for Ratchet and Winch Straps

Protective sleeves are also available to help protect against facial wear and cuts from sharp edges. A protective sleeve is a durable, abrasion resistant bulked nylon protective material that easily slides onto your ratchet strap or winch strap assembly. Available for 1", 2", 3" and 4" webbing.
