Handy 3-in-1 tool great for truckers.
Akron, Ohio – (April 17, 2012) – Ken-Tool, the leader in tire service tools, has announced the release of the unique, patented Strap Winder tool (# 39760). Over-the-road truckers will find the Strap Winder tool to be time saving and very useful to secure nylon straps to the winches attached to a flatbed deck.
To take up the strap, the driver inserts the winder into the winch shaft tightening hole and using an in/out motion, quickly winds the strap onto the winch spool. After the slack has been drawn into the winch spool, the driver engages the ratchet locking mechanism, and tightens the straps by inserting the handle end into the tightening holes and turning the shaft.

The 19-inch Strap Winder weighs 2.1 lbs. (1 kg). It is made of durable high-quality steel, which is blue powder coated, assuring a long service life. The Strap Winder has a long-lasting, weather-resistant foam rubber grip which provides operator comfort and convenience. Ken-Tool’s Strap Winder is made in the U.S.A., and is affordably priced at $44.95 (MSRP).
The Strap Winder handle is also highly useful as a “cheater bar” to provide added leverage during the final tightening of nylon strap ratchet assemblies, as well as a handy tire “knocker.”
