will this rust or not release if used in salt water
asked by: Rich
The Erickson Re-Tractable, Ratcheting, Bolt-On Tie-Down Strap, # EM51319, would be a good choice for marine applications. The metal parts are steel but have a zinc-dichromate coating for corrosion resistance. The handle is made of sturdy plastic that will not rust. You should not have problems with it seizing in a marine environment. To pro-long the life of it, you can clean off any salt deposits after use.
Tie-down straps should always be chosen according to their Safe Working Load Limit (WLL). The item being tied down must not exceed this weight. If the working load limit is not given, simply divide the maximum capacity, or break strength, by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load.
