Load Restraint

Restraint-Mate Load Binders

Nobles Restraint-Mate load binders are drop forged and heat treated for high strength, the hooks swivel 360 degrees for easy positioning and each load binder is individually proof load tested.

We have a lever load, indirect and a ratchet load binder.

Load Binder Variations

Load Binder Variations

Lever Load Binder with Cradle Grab Hooks

Supplied with instructions

Lever Load Binder

 

Nobles Restraint-Mate grab hook load binders are fitted with cradle grab hooks to provide a 100% rating as per AS/NZS 4344.
*6mm load binders are derated by 25%

 

Indirect Load Binder with Grab Hooks

Supplied with instructions

Indirect Load Binder

 

The INDIRECT load binder is designed to reduce handle "whip" when releasing a tensioned load binder. Indirect load binders reduce whip with a double action release that limits the lever movement.

 

Ratched Load Binder with Cradle Grab Hooks

Supplied with instructions

Ratchet Load Binder

Ratchet load binders are well suited to tensioning short chains and for loads such as rubber tired vehicles. Very high tensioning forces can be achieved, even on short chains, and more precise adjustment is available. Ratchet load binders have no whip when released and come complete with cradle grab hooks for 100% rating. (*6mm load binders are derated by 25%)

Inspection before use

Inspection before use

 

  1. Clean load binders if necessary prior to inspection.
  2. Routinely check load binders for deformation, bending, cracks, nicks, gouges and excessive wear or corrosion.

Care In Use

Care In Use

 

  1. Do not use load binders that show any signs of deformation, bending, cracks, nicks, gouges and excessive wear or corrosion.
  2. Do not operate load binder while standing on the load.
  3. When the load binder is under tension release the handle with caution as there is a great deal of energy in the tensioned chain. The handle may whip so be sure to keep clear of the moving handle.
  4. To release the handle by hand, use an open hand under the handle and push upward. Do not close your hand around the handle.
  5. While under tension the load binder must not bear against any object, as this will cause side loading.
  6. Nobles recommends against the use of handle extenders (cheater pipes). The increased leverage, by using a cheater pipe can cause deformation and failure of the chain and load binder.
  7. During and after tensioning the chain check the load binder handle position to be sure it is locked.
  8. Chain tensioning may decrease due to the load shifting during transport. To be sure the load binder remains in the correct position secure the handle to the lashing chain by wrapping the loose end of the chain around the handle and the tight chain. Alternatively the handle can be tied off with soft wire.
