Ensure ratchet is in good working order prior to each use.
Check nylon webbing for wear, frays, and rips
Check ratchet for cracked or bent parts.
Check entire tie-down for damage and proper working
operation.
Keep ratchet mechanism clean to avoid rust and ensure
smooth operation.
When not in use, keep ratchet in a dry area where it cannot
become damaged or inoperable.
SAFETY MEASURES – use only as intended.
NOTE: Quickloader/Wessel Industries LLC is not able to advise
on specific load securements as there are too many variables
and unknowns about each load for us to do so (eg the load
characteristics itself (weight and dimensions), equipment and
transportation conditions, linear and downward pressure,
bouncing etc.)
It is important to follow Local Regulations for load securement,
including using appropriate straps/size and load ratings for your
load, as well as U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Administrations’s Cargo Securement
Rules https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/cargo-securement/
cargo-securement-rules.
Ensure that there is a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 turns of
webbing on the ratchet spindle.
A bouncing load may reduce tension on the ratchet spindle
causing the webbing around the spindle to loosen. Ensure the
load is secured in a manner so that bouncing does not occur.
Quickloader/Wessel Industries LLC is not responsible for the
attachment or the installation. It neither guarantees, nor will it be
liable for any damage resulting from its attachment or improper
use. Warranty information available upon request. Warranty void
if webbing or hardware is damaged, cut or worn.
The cargo weight is to be evenly distributed. Protect the
webbing against friction, abrasion and damage from load
with sharp edges by using protective sleeves and/or corner
protectors. Do not throw the Quickloader across the cargo as it
may result in serious injuries. Quickloader should not be dropped
or left on the ground where vehicles may damage the metal
fittings. Tension must always be applied using the handle to
secure the goods.
The Quickloader retractable spring mechanism does not produce
enough tension alone to secure any load. Therefore apply a hand
force of approximately 30 lbs (15 kg) on the handle to achieve a
recommended pretension on the webbing. Ensure that there is
a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 turns of webbing on the
ratchet spindle. After fastening the Quickloader the handle arm
should be put back into its original position. Make sure that both
of the locking plates (top on the handle and bottom on the base)
slides fully into cogwheel. Quickloader shall not be overloaded,
neither by exceeding the maximum handle force of 30 lbs (15 kg)
or by exceeding working load with too heavy cargo. Mechanical
aids such as levers and bars as extensions are not to be used to
increase the tension.
The Quickloader’s rating (Load/Breakforce) should not be the
only determining factor of securing the load. It is vital that the
anchoring points and fittings be equal to or greater than the load
being secured. Use your hand as a brake on the webbing spool
during retraction to avoid the hook and webbing returning at a
high speed. A visual inspection before and after each use is
recommended. The webbing is suitable for use in temperatures
ranging from -40°F (-40°C) to 194°F (90°C). Changes in the
temperature during transport may affect the pretension on the
webbing. Check the tension force after changes in the
temperature. A temperature below freezing point may affect the
retractable function of Quickloader if the webbing contains
moisture. Before attempting to unload any cargo Quickloader is
to be released so that the cargo can be lifted freely. During
unloading, care should be taken to ensure proper stability of the
load before releasing the Quickloader’s tension. This is to avoid
the cargo falling and causing damage. When securing the cargo,
the Quickloader shall not be placed against a corner or a
sharp edge. Quickloader should not be used if the webbing is
knotted. The strength of the Quickloader may not comply with
the break force if it has tears, cuts, nicks, breaks in load
fibers, deformed parts, been in contact with chemicals,
cracks, corrosion, or pronounced signs of wear. The webbing
may discolor the load.
To ensure that Quickloader continues to operate as intended, it is
recommended to keep the unit clean. Lightly lubricate the
cogwheels and store it in an environment which is dry and above
freezing point when not in use.
Do not to open the plastic spring box. Attempting to open the
spring box may result in serious injuries. Any attempt to open will
immediately void all Warranties and Liabilities.
Quickloader is subject to normal wear and tear. The capacity
stated on the label is the capacity for a new and unused product.
Degradation of the stated capacity may occur after use. Please
note: The driver is responsible for securing the cargo according
to applicable laws, rules and regulations. For more details and
information you may visit wesselindustries.com.
