DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder Makes Retensioning a Breeze

April 29, 2020
The compact but also extra long load binder, distributed by Doleco, enables users to reach extra far when tensioning cargo.

At just three-quarters as long as a standard load binder, the DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder fits into tighter spaces but expands to enable users to reach twice as far as any other. The compact size and the extra length saves users time and trouble because they don’t have to detach and reattach chains when periodically re-tensioning cargo.


Regular re-tensioning of cargo securement chains is a repetitive task and is crucial to keeping loads safely anchored. But the job of re-tensioning can become far more cumbersome when a load binder becomes completely retracted. Unable to take up more slack, the user must fully loosen the binder in order to disconnect the chain, extend the spindles for more tensioning distance and then reconnect to a new link in the chain.


The key to the DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder’s size and tensioning length is its patented spindle-in-a-spindle ratchet configuration. The unique design allows the ratchet housing to be significantly shorter, by enabling one threaded spindle to retract by screwing inside the other. When extended, the longer spindle length gives users twice the tensioning distance of other load binders, allowing users to start out with a tighter chain and to perform multiple re-tensioning without the need to disengage the binder’s clevis hooks from its chains.


Since the majority of cargo securement applications will involve steel chains, the DoRa comes standard with clevis hooks. However, it's also designed to work as a system with Doleco’s DoNova PowerLash Textile Lashing Chain, and for those applications can be ordered with a slip hook and keeper on both ends of its spindles.
