Erickson’s NEW MULTIPLIER ratchet strap has a 2 to 1 gear drive that exerts twice the tension with the same amount of force compared to the standard ratchet we all use today. Ergo friendly, it is much easier to apply the tension needed to secure your load with the Multiplier. To tighten pull on the handle rather than push. For instance, if the operator has numerous ratchets to tighten and he/she just simply doesn’t have the strength in his/her arm to reach the proper tension to secure the load The Multiplier is the answer.
