Lever binders

I can't seem to find it in black and white. Are lever binders legal?

That is all I ever used on the chains on my flatbeds. I was stopped several times for safety inspections over the years and it never came up! Also, got no tickets ( for safety issues)! But, I did put small, strong, short pieces of chain with clips on the end/handles of my binders and clipped them once set/tensioned, so they couldn't pop up/loose. A bit of a hassel, but I have (up to this point) never had anything come off one of my trailers during transit!

Yeah. I know a few guys that say yes and a few say no. I just can't find any specification in writing.

I've commercially hauled JD loaders for the company I work part time for and that was all we had until recently. The chains were no longer legal so they bought all new gear and changed to ratchet style binders. Never any issue at the scales or inspections. AFAIK they are still OK. I always looped excess chain over the handle and half hitched it several times to make sure nothing popped loose.

That's all I use to secure a load when i use chain. I always use a minimum of 4 crossed chains and never had a problem or inspection issue with them. Depending on what I'm hauling, I use straps and/or chains

Can't spell guys, my bad

A lot of oil companies here in Wyoming and Colorado do not allow leaver boomers or chain the want you to use 3 1/2 ratchet straps. If they will allow you to use chain it is ratcheting boomers imply

Yeah I always keep some 9 wire for the handle of snap binders. Gotta buy some chain and binders just curious. I like both for different applications.

I actually like the bind with the snaps better. Plus they are way faster
