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 Buckle 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. The safe working load is one-third the breaking strength For example, Strapworks’ flat nylon webbing 1.5 inch straps have a breaking strength of 4250 pounds, so a safe working load is 1416 pounds. You also need to consider your hardware and stitching. Your cam buckle option includes: standard 1-1/2 inch (1200 pounds). You also need to calculate your safe working load for your stitching. Strapworks always engineers stitching strength to meet the next weakest link (usually the buckle).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 flat nylon webbing are a good 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.
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). Polyester is the best strap webbing, by far.
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. Polyester is the best strap webbing, by far.
Cam Straps made with heavyweight polypropylene webbing
are suitable for medium duty applications. However, polypropylene does not have good abrasion resistance, so it is not recommended for use against rough edges. Polypro also does not do well around chlorine, so use around pools or hot tubs is not recommended.
The sublimation process may take an extra 2-3 days to fulfill your order.

Choosing the Buckle Pad option will add a sewn section of
Black Heavyweight Polypropylene under the buckle area to protect anything
beneath it from scratching.
