Years ago I had experience with both. For the record, we always called the snap over ones "boomers" and the ratchet screw ones "binders". Recently I had been using nylon straps, but decided I needed to have some ratchet binders in case I wanted to haul something on the trailer where chains would be more appropriate. I went to several trailer supply houses here in Houston and could not find the good Crosy / Lebus / made in the US boomers or binders. All they carried was made in China. This was one item that I did not want to trust to Chinese made stuff, but the salesman convinced me that the reason why they didn't carry the much more expensive made in the US stuff was that the Chinese stuff was just as good.
I used them a few times hauling a small tractor with no problems, but the first time I tried to tighten down a load of steel where there was no rubber tires to provide a little give, the screws started jumping treads. I had them pretty snug but nowheres near the point that they should have failed like that. I took them back to the dealer, who claimed they'd never had anyone complain about them. They gave me a new pair, but I don't trust them for anythiing near their supposedly rated load.
Fortunately I found a good pair of old Lebus brand binders at an antique store.
