The ladder rack ratchet strap is solidly fastened to the ladder rack so a worker with one arm can wrap and hook a strap, and then ratchet it down. Ratchet straps are very useful for many applications, but they are clumsy and difficult to use for workers with arm amputations, rotator cuff injuries, arthritis, or other upper extremity limitations.
Standard ratchet straps require one good hand to hold the ratchet body and another good hand to hold the hook in place. By fastening the ratchet to a ladder rack, truck bed or trailer, the worker does not need to hold the ratchet body, but can use his strong arm to wrap the strap and operate the ratchet handle. This is a must-have for any worker who needs to tie-down loads, such as carpenters, farmers, loggers, home owners, groundskeepers, landscapers or fabricators.
Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from a Ladder Rack Ratchet Strap: Arm Amputation, Hand injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome/Repetitive Motion Injury, Cerebral Palsy (CP), Quadriplegia, Rotator Cuff Injury, Shoulder Replacement, Stroke, Rheumatoid Arthritis.
