The Cinch Ring is used to attach a strap around an anchor or a load. It works like a dog choker collar and allows you to safely attach the ratchet strap to itself up to its full load potential.
If you try to hook the ratchet strap to itself without the cinch ring (as shown below, left), the hook will fold the strap over onto itself. Under load, the strap will want to flatten out and will likely slip out of the hook which will abruptly (and dangerously) release the load.
As you pull the strap, the cinch ring will slide down the strap until the system chokes up around the anchor or load. This is very useful in attaching the strap to trees, utility poles, "A", "B", or "C" posts, or even around an entire vehicle in order to stabilize it.
Tips & Tricks:
If responding to a scene involving a semi load of pipes or timber, you can quickly secure and tie off the load by using a couple of straps with cinch rings.
