Kinedyne says its Saf-T Binder is designed to reduce personal injuries and broken chains. The new chain binder features a shortened “T” handle that gives drivers a firmer grip for securing cargo, allowing them to achieve the proper tension by hand without the use of “cheater” bars for greater leverage, according to the company; this potentially dangerous and costly practice can result in tensioning chain beyond its working load limit.
The unit weighs 10.60 lbs. (4.8 kg) and works 5/16-in. and 3/8-in. chains. Breaking strength is 19,000 lbs. (8620 kg), and working load limit is 5,400 lbs. (2450 kg). For more information, go to www.kinedyne.com.
