Working Load Limit(WLL) & Min. Breaking Strength(M.B.S.):

In learning how to use ratchet tie down straps, it’s important to use a strap based on the Min. Breaking Strength (MBS) and working load limit (WLL).

Each component of a ratchet strap assembly- the webbing, the ratchet, and the end fittings- have a breaking strength that is determined through independent testing. The breaking strength is the amount of weight a component can withstand before failing.

Because a tie down assembly is only as strong as its weakest point, the component with the lowest breaking strength is considered the breaking strength of the entire ratchet strap assembly.

The working load limit is then determined based on the breaking strength. The working load limit is figured by taking 1/3 of the breaking strength of the weakest component. This means a tie down strap with an assembly breaking strength of 10,000 lbs. would have a working load limit of 3,333 lbs. An assembly should never be used in applications over its working load limit.
