Binder Chains & Load Binders

Binder Chains are manufactured using Grade 70 Transport Chain, Grade 43 High Test Chain and Alloy Chain. Chains are rated according to the grade of chain they are made from, and are used to bind down load prior transportation.  Check with your state department of transportation or C.V.S.A for proper regulations on chain grades allowed to be used when securing loads when traveling on state highways. 

Load Binders are used to connect and tighten the chain after its been secured around the load.  Lebus Load Binders come in several styles, but the most common two styles are the ratchet binder and the lever binder pictured below.

Do not exceed rated capacities.

Binder chains should be inspected for bent links, excessive wear, stretched links, nicks and gouges or heat damage prior to use.  Chain should never be knotted or twisted to shorten or lengthen.  For training on chain inspection best practices, please contact our training department for classes.
