I guess too many guys never have heard of an OIL CAN!!!! I had the break over center type because Dad's ratcheting type where a real pain to use. Always stuck and you could not spin them. I then had to haul some steel tracked loaders. I needed some ratchet type binders. I bought good new ones. I took them apart before I ever used them and oiled the threads inside the ratchet body. After using them a few times and not having to mess with having the break over center type/cheater bars. I sold my break over center type to my brother. I have not used anything but the ratchet type for ten years or more. I carry a can of spray multi lube. I just make sure the treads are kept lubed. They are much safer to use then the break over center type. Plus when you check them during the haul they are much easier to just give a few cranks when the load settles in.

Used to get machinery broken because some idiot would take a six foot pipe and bull down on piece of equipment that was setting solid on the trailer/truck floor. I had to replace four of the six gear cases on a JD 693 corn head that a supper trucker broke binding them down with break over center binders and a long cheater pipe. Cost him over four thousand dollars ten years ago. So if I receive any machinery that was bound down with break over center binders I check it over real close.
