HINTS/FAQ

 


 

<Instructions> for all GasStrap equipment.

Hints and Tips

  • Protect the bar work on your ute or trailer by slitting a piece of poly pipe or similar and feeding it over the area to be protected.
  • If you use your GasStrap often, a 100mm piece of 20mm garden hose or similar pushed over the handle will make latching and unlatching easier on your hands. Alternatively, you could use gloves.
  • For GasStrap, twists may be required to shorten the chain if it can't be tensioned sufficiently. The twists are formed by turning the hook(s) through 360 degrees (see Instructions). Do not use more than two twists a side and do not allow any knots to form.
  • Use a rubber protection strip when securing environ drums (see gallery).
  • Use hand force only to tension. Do not use extension bars on the handle to tension the GasStrap.
  • Ensure that the headboard or trailer connections are strong enough to restrain the load being secured by the GasStrap.
  • Always check the load once it has been secured.
