The weakest link will be at your buckle, so it is important to use a strong gator buckle! The thicker the wire diameter the stronger the buckle.
With a strong 3/4″ gator strap, you should use a .157″ diameter gator buckle.
For light duty 3/4″ you can use a mid duty gator buckle.
For 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ gator strap, use a very strong wire buckle.
Make sure to keep the integrity of your strong cord strap by not down grading your weakest link!
Cord Strap lets you band up your pallets, just like you did with steel strapping. With the super strong polyester cord strap, even the heaviest load can be strapped safely. The most common gator strap sizes are:
