A chain binder, is a tool used to tighten chain as a method to secure cargo to a trailer for transport. There are two common styles; the ratchet binder and the lever binder.

A ratchet binder also known as a ratchet chain, uses a ratcheting mechanism to create tension in the chain and secure the load. It features a ratchet handle and two tension hooks on each end. Ratchet styles are often noted as the safer option between the two types because it’s design does not store as much energy in the handle, reducing the risk of the bar recoiling or snapping back.
