Whether you need cargo management, trailer tie downs, ATV and motorcycle straps, or just straps for river rafting, Strapworks has the perfect solution to your Metal Cam Strap needs. The most common use for cam straps are a strap used to tie down or secure heavy loads, typically on trailers or in the bed of trucks. Cam buckle straps may be considered the "duct tape" of the strap world, but they do have limitations. A strap is only as strong as its weakest link. A guide line for finding a safe working load is to take the breaking strength and divide it by one third. For example, Strapworks’ patterned polyester webbing 1-1/2 inch has a breaking strength of 4971 pounds, so a safe working load is 1657 pounds. You also need to consider your hardware and stitching. Your cam buckle option include: standard 1-1/2 inch (1200 pounds). You also need to calculate your safe working load for your buckles and your stitching. When in doubt, buy 1 strap and test it for your application.
Please keep in mind the characteristics of the different types of webbing when ordering straps.
Cam Straps made with patterned polyester webbing are perfect for heavy loads with high abrasion. Polyester has the best attributes of flat nylon (abrasion resistance) and heavyweight polypropylene (UV protection, water resistance).
Strapworks’ "Patterned Polyester
" is polyester that has been sublimated. Sublimation is a process that virtually tattoos the ink into the webbing by turning a solid ink into a permeating gas. This process is done in house and it allows for great detail and vivid custom colorfast colors. Polyester is the only material we carry that is consistent in its ability to be sublimated.
Cam Straps made with flat nylon webbing
is the webbing of choice for high abrasion applications. It is not recommended for use in or around water continuously because it is less water resistant, making it susceptible to mildew and rot.
The sublimation process may take an extra 2-3 days to fulfill your order.

Two, to achieve a sure grip on powder coated cams; it is imperative that the user puts pressure on the backside of trigger and push it into the webbing. It may move approximately 1 inch before establishing a secure grip on the material.

Black Heavyweight Polypropylene under the buckle area to protect anything
beneath it from scratching.
