Doleco USA has released the DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder. The company says the DoRa, which is three-quarters as long as a standard load binder, fits into tighter spaces but expands to enable users to reach further. According to the company, the product is designed to help make the re-tensioning process easier.
“With double the tensioning length, our patented DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder virtually eliminates the time and effort needed to disengage cargo securement chains for re-tensioning,” said Ralph Abato, president and managing director of Doleco USA. “And by engineering the DoRa to be 20% shorter than standard load binders, it can fit in spaces others simply can’t.”
According to the company, the design of its spindle-in-a-spindle ratchet configuration allows the ratchet housing to be significantly shorter, by enabling one threaded spindle to retract by screwing inside the other. When extended, the DoRa’s longer spindle length gives users twice the tensioning distance of other load binders, allowing users to start out with a tighter chain and to perform multiple re-tensionings without the need to disengage the binder’s clevis hooks from its chains, Doleco says.
Since the majority of cargo securement applications will involve steel chains, the DoRa comes standard with clevis hooks. However, the DoRa Ratcheting Load Binder is also designed to work as a system with Doleco’s DoNova PowerLash Textile Lashing Chain, and for those applications can be ordered with a slip hook and keeper on both ends of its spindles.
