Safety Warnings and Ratings

All ratings are for products in new condition. Breaking strengths shown on this website are based on the load a component or assembly will withstand before failing. Age, wear or damage to any tie-down system can greatly reduce its strength. All products should be inspected prior to each use.

Working Load Limits shown on this website and/or printed brochures are based off of WSTDA industry standards. Please be aware that different products have different safety factors. Unless otherwise specified, all ratings are based on a straight tensile pull. Load directions other than straight can result in a significant reduction in breaking strength.

Warning: Products on this website may be subjected to dirt, mud snow, ice, road salt, cleaning solution, etc., and therefore require inspection, cleaning and lubricating to ensure that they are in proper operating condition.
