That load gets bouncy, back and forth, up and down, and those cheap flimsy straps start to fray and the crappy ratchet mechanism fails and you've got a tractor laying on her lid in the middle of the highway.

Actually, as long as they have the WLL printed on them, they are legal to use. I just wouldn't go trusting wally'smart crap to hold down an entire load.

I don't where you get straps are flimsy when a lot of over the road drivers use only straps. Over the 38 years I drove I got stuck a few times in construction sites and they pulled me out with one 6" wide strap with a crawler. The rig was 26,000 Lbs. not including the load.

Quality straps won't be had at HF or WM....DOT/CHP legal ones will cost their price and will be of decent quality. Will they last forever?? Certainly not. But what do you think all these truckers hauling sheet-rock from the local plants are using? NOT chains!!
