Cam Buckles & Overcentre Buckles

For the kind of loads that aren't so heavy-duty that you need a ratchet buckle to get them secured, we recommend you try the quick-to-use Cam Buckle or the easy-to-use Overcentre Buckle. Each one has its benefits that allow you to quickly and easily secure your valuable cargo for the long haul. Cam Buckles are more suitable for light-duty tie-down jobs that don't require excessive size or strength. Overcentre Buckles have the benefit of allowing the buckle to rest directly on top of the webbing, preventing the device from marring the surface of the cargo. Both available in a variety of sizes and styles, you're sure to find the right tensioning device that is able to get the job done right.

Differences between Cam Buckles and Overcentre Buckles

Cam Buckles are generally reserved for the lighter types of tie-down jobs that don’t necessarily require the overpowered strength of a ratchet buckle or a winch. They are incredibly easy to use and require minimal effort on your end. On the other hand, Overcentre Buckles are designed to handle most types of tie-down jobs. The main difference is that after tensioning the strap, the overcentre buckle rests on top of the webbing in order to prevent it from vibrating against the cargo.

Cam Buckles

These Cam Buckles are more suitable for the lightweight cargo control jobs that don't require the kind of strength you need from a Ratchet Buckle. Instead, the tensioning power of the Cam Buckles relies on the strength of the operator, effectively putting cargo control directly into your hands. Very easy to operate, it takes less time to secure a load with this type of buckle, saving you more time in the loading and unloading process. They are also helpful when you need to bundle certain objects together for a more convenient transport. Each of the Cam Buckles, ranging from 25mm to 35mm to 50mm, are designed to provide you with an efficient and adequate hold over your load, keeping everything in place for the whole trip.

Overcentre Buckles

Overcentre Buckles provide you with an extra layer of cushioning that helps prevent the buckle from constantly rocking against the cargo due to the vibrations of the road. Built with the strength needed to secure medium- to heavy-duty loads, these buckles are designed to provide adequate security quickly and efficiently. They are designed using a stainless steel coating, making them the ideal tensioning device for marine applications since the stainless steel can help prevent rust and corrosion caused by moisture from building up along the frame. When the strap is tensioned, the buckle closes and tensions the strap a bit more while lying on top of the webbing, maintaining its tensile strength during the entire trip.
