Video Transcript for Durabilt Ratcheting Chain Binder with Compression Spring Review

What's up everybody It's AJ with Today, we're gonna be checking out this Durabilt chain binder. Now this one's gonna be a little bit different from the other chain binders. It has a built in shock absorber here. It's gonna be helpful for vehicles with suspension, or wheels that might move a little bit while you're moving them. It'll absorb that shock here, instead of making things get loose.

Let's check it out. Now, these are usually used with heavier equipment, like our skid-steer here today. We have it tied down. We wouldn't be able to do that with ratchet straps to get those tight. Clearly, this is too heavy for that.

When you go to put those ratchet straps on there and tie them down, it's just gonna break when it needs to have that tension. So you're gonna have to use something a little more heavy-duty like chains. So if you use chains, we have one end hooked here, and one hook up to our stake pocket, but you still need to make those chains tight. You can't really just wrap it and pull it tight yourself. That's where the chain binder comes in.

It attaches to these points in the chains, these hooks too, on each side. Then our ratchet here in the center, and it pulls both ends of these chains together, making it really tight. It builds in that tension. You can see, I can't even move it back and forth. That's how tight it's holding it.

So it's gonna just keep it safe going down the road. Something that sets this chain binder apart from all the other ones is this compression spring that's built into it. So you see, this is usually working with something that has suspension or tires on there that might shift back and forth on the trailer while you're moving. So how it's gonna work is when you go to tighten it down, it's gonna compress this spring. So it's already compressed when it's tight, and all that tension on there. So if your load was to move, it would expand out and then pull it back here to this original state. That just allows the movement to stay kind of here, instead of transferring down here to the chains, and loosening those up. So this might not be how you're gonna use it because we are hooked up to this skid-steer here. And it's not gonna shift back and forth much. There's no tires or suspension. We've got treads. But I just wanted to show that it does work as a chain binder as well. It's still nice and tight. Still not going anywhere. Still gonna hold this in place while we're going down the road. Let's check out how it works. You have the barrel, this is what this is called. So you can put one hand there when you go to tighten or loosen it. We got the hooks on either end, attached to the chains, so we're gonna release the tension on it right now. So you have the pawl here, and this is what you push down to put it in the tighten position or the loosen position. So right now I'm gonna push down on it. Release it so it's free, the free spin. And then you can push it down. Like that. That way you can loosen it. So now what we'll use the handle. Start loosening it up. You can see the spring decompress and the chains get looser as I do this. With it loosened up, we can go ahead and remove the hook off of the chain. Just like that. And it's disconnected. And it's easy just to put it back on there. So we pick out our point on the chain. We want to slide that link into the hook. There we go. And that's attached. I'm gonna come back down here, flip that pawl back on the other side and then start to tighten it down. You can see it's nice and tight. Another extra thing that this one has over some of the other ones is you can actually add a padlock to it. Just run it through that hole there, and now you can lock into place. And now it can't be messed with. So yeah, you can tighten it down a little bit more, but you can't flip this back over to loosen it. So people can't mess with it when you leave it on attended. You saw how easy it was to do the ratchet style chain binders. Pretty easy and pretty quick to loosen them and tighten them back up. Now there are other versions. So there is also the snap binder, and that's gonna be a little bit quicker, 'cause that's more of a lever you throw and it pulls the chains together, but it also gets a lot of tension. So you get a bar to get that lever to pull that really tight. Just one motion pulls it really tight, but then you also have to loosen that. So when you go to break that tension, it can pop up and be a little scary. It just pops up and moves on ya. You don't have that with the ratcheting style because you can go nice and slow either tightening or loosening it. And I really liked that. And when it comes to the ratcheting style kinds, there are options there too. So today, if you are using a set up similar to us and you don't really need the compression spring on there, there are ones that don't have that, and it just has the hooks. It comes down to the handle. We have a regular standard handle on this one, but there are ones that have a foldable handle. So you can hit a button, pull it off to the side. If space is an issue on your trailer, you don't have a lot of space, you might want that. Or even there's one where you can remove the handle entirely. Just throw it in a toolbox. If you are still worried about space, you want the nice, neat look, you can just ratchet down with that, remove it and throw in a toolbox. Something to keep in mind when you are looking at chain binders is making sure you get the right binders for the right setup. What trailer you're using it on. What equipment are you gonna go with There's weight capacities on these and you want to make sure you get the right one that can handle the heavy duty stuff you want it to. So for instance, this one has a safe working load limit of 9,200 pounds. And if you go to the ends of the hooks, it's gonna work with chains from 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch. Another thing to look at is how much weight your chains can handle that you're gonna use, 'cause you want to make sure they're using for the right application. So make sure you check the weight rating on those chains compared to what you're gonna be tying down. But then also look at the chain binder and make sure its weight capacities run the same too. So if the chains are gonna be lower than the chain binder, that's okay. Just go by the number that's on the chains 'cause you don't want those breaking. The whole construction is gonna be steel with a red paint on there. You can see it chips away a little bit here on the gears we're you use it to ratchet. So it probably will get chipped away as you go on there, but it's not gonna affect any of the functionality. It'll still work just fine. Overall, I think these chain binders are gonna be really good. It's gonna be really easy to get your load tightened down, especially with the compression spring here. If you're hauling vehicles or something with tires or suspension on there, that's gonna really help you out, absorb that shock, keep it all here rather than loosen everything else there. Well, thanks for hanging out and I hope this helps..
