Video Transcript for Durabilt Ratcheting Chain Binder Review

What's up everybody. It's AJ with Today, and we'll be checking out these Durabilt Ratcheting Chain Binders with a foldable handle. You can see it's really good for tying down heavy machinery. This thing isn't going anywhere. It's staying right where it is.

Let's check it out. A chain binder you're gonna really need to use on heavy equipment. So we have a skid-steer here today and that's what we got tied down. We clearly couldn't use ratchet straps. Those are gonna snap.

Those aren't going to be able to hold something this big. That's why you need to use chains with it. And with chains, you can't really ratchet them with a mechanism like you can do a ratchet strap to get them tied and put tension on them. That's where the chain binder comes in, cause that's what it does. You hook up both hooks to ends of the chains here.

The chain's wrapped around the skid-steer and here in our stake pocket. And then this portion ratchets, pulling the hooks and pulling the chain tight. So you can see, it's not moving. There's a bunch of tension on there and that's gonna hold up when you're going down the road. Let's see how it works.

So right away, you got the folding handle. There's like a small button here, silver one, you push on the opposite side. It's gonna allow you fold the handle back out so you can actually use it. If I bring this back up, this knob, you turn right now, it's on the tighten. So if it's pointing towards the handle, it's gonna ratchet so it tightens it up. So we're going to pull this knob out, turn it around. Now it's in the loosen mode. So now I'm going to start ratcheting it. I'm just gonna have these hooks come out now and release that tension that's on the chains. You'll start seeing them start to droop down and not be as tight. So now you see how loose they are. I'll slide the hook off and show ya. So now we're gonna go back and tighten it back up. So I'm gonna try to aim for one of these legs. Slide that into place right there. You've got this chain run through our stake pocket and hook up on the top. See how loose it is here. So come back. Put the knob with the arrow pointing towards the handle, because that's what's gonna tighten it up. I can put one hand on the barrel here. This is the barrel. And you kind of start to turn that that way as you're out to just to get it. A little quicker going, and then once it gets harder, you can use the handle to get that real tension out or in. And see now I can't really turn the barrel of my hand as easily. So I'm gonna use the handle. Now you'll see it's nice and tight. And then when you're done, you just push that button and fold the handle down. That's how easy it is to use the ratcheting chain binders. Now there is other chain binders out there, like the snap chain binder, and that's more of a lever action. So you're gonna use a lever to pull that tension on those chains. You might even have to use a bar if it's really heavy duty to get that tension on there. So then it's gonna be a lot of tension packed in there. And then when you go to take it off, you're gonna have to snap that tension. So when you go to use that lever, it's going to pop up and it'd be a little bit of dangerous, a little bit scary, but that's why I like the ratcheting one better because you can slowly tighten it down and then slowly back it off. There's no snapping or any sudden movements here while you're doing that. Back to the ratcheting chain binders though, there's a bunch from Durabilt that they offer with just depending on what you need or what you want. So the different versions they have is now we have the folding handle here. There's one that has a removable handle. So the handle straight up comes off that way. Nobody can mess with when you're not around. And it's just easier for storage. You know, when you go to store all four of these in the same container or same place, if the handle doesn't move, that's going to be in a way, cause that's another option too. There's one where the handle just stick straight out. It doesn't fold down or remove. It's there. It still works just the same. It's just gonna take up more space for that handle not moving. Something else to consider is thinking about what you're actually going to be tying down with this because there is working load limits on chain binders. For instance, this one's gonna have a safe working load limit of 12,000 pounds. And then you've got to think about what kind of chain that's gonna work with too. So make sure it's compatible with the chains you got or the ones your order, or make sure those are going to work with the equipment you're gonna use. You see on the hook, it says it here. It's gonna work with thicknesses of three eights of an inch all the way up to half of an inch. And there's a few different versions of the pulling handle. One that have different weight capacities. This one's going to be 18,100 pounds safe working load limit. And it's gonna work with chains from half of an inch all the way up to five eights of an inch of thickness chain. And there's also gonna be a smaller one, that's gonna have a safe working load limit of 8,800 pounds. And then it's gonna work with chains of five sixteenths all the way up to three eights of an inch thickness. And once you've got that all figured out with whatever you're hauling, whatever you're tying it down with, you got the right chains and the right chain binder, make sure you look at the safe working load limit on the chains themselves. If that's lower than the chain binder, you want to go by that just because you don't want to exchange the break while you're hauling this. And compared to some of the other rationing chain binders, this is contained. So the ratcheting portion is all in here, so you can't see it. So that's a good thing. Cause the red paint seems like it's holding up because the parts on the other ones, when it was exposed, when you activate the pull, it would just go ahead and scrape that away, and you'd see the paint come up. Here you can't see it in there. So it's gonna stay nicer longer than some of the other ones. Another benefit though is dirt and debris can't get in there to affect the ratcheting mechanism. It's all contained like I said in there, then it's kind of protected. So I liked that part of that compared to the other ones. And it's also ready to use. Chains from grade 70 all the way up to grade 80. Overall, these are great chain binders. I really liked the ratcheting style over all the other ones. It's just easier to slowly build that tension or release that tension. And it's safer too. You don't have to worry about it popping like you do with the other snap ones. This is gonna be the better option and it's gonna make sure this stays tensioned and this isn't going where when you're going down the road. Well, thanks for hanging out. And I hope this helped..

Customer service and contact from etrailer was excellent. I wish their site had said product was out of stock, but they soon followed up and gave estimates for possible delivery. Because there was a delay, I stumbled across the same product on line and they were happy to price match, so many thanks for that, as I had already been waiting and was happy with the great support at etrailer.

The (4) binders arrived today in a box, with basically no packing and since they were heavy, the box was a little big and it was like they were in a rock tumbler. I like to take care of everything I own, yes they may eventually get scuffed from chains or something, but the nicely painted (thick coat of paint) surface is chipped in many areas and the bare handles feel rough and semi-sharp from the fresh jagged paint chips. I'll get over it, but after everything else being great, it ended in some disappointment on delivery day. I would have rated lower, if not for the great customer support. If I had no interaction with anyone, it would have likely been below average. So keep the great people and just pack a little better. Thanks for all the effort, until packing...
