Moving bands are the perfect accessory for your moving needs. Simply place the moving bands around your piece of furniture to keep drawers from rolling open and doors shut.

Sometimes drawers are hard to take out of your dressers and frustrating to put back in. With mover bands you can keep the drawers in place without worrying about them sliding out while moving the furniture.

Keeping your moving blankets over your furniture is not a problem with moving bands. Put the blanket over the furniture and then slip a couple of moving bands around the blanket. This will help hold the blanket in place, giving your furniture more protection.

The Supreme blanket is the thickest moving blanket on the market

The Supreme moving blanket is the highest quality furniture pad that we offer at US Cargo Control. This blanket features a polyester / cotton blend which means it’s a lot softer to the touch and it will protect even your most fragile items when moving.

Not only will the Supreme moving blanket prevent scratches when your furniture and belongings are being transported, but the blanket also prevents scuffing on walls or other obstacles.

Another important characteristic of our Supreme moving blanket is the woven binding. These woven fibers on the binding mean that the blanket is more tear resistant and abrasion resistant and is overall, a stronger blanket. It also means it will hold up well in a washing machine and you won’t have to worry about it falling apart.

Moving bulky and awkward furniture on hardwood floors is no longer a challenge with the Supreme moving blanket. Simply use the blanket to slide furniture across the floors without worrying about scratching the floor or the furniture.

This combination of durability and softness also makes it a great option for sound proofing or as pet bedding.

The Supreme moving blanket is ultra heavy weight, weighing in at about 95 pounds per dozen. The uniform zig-zag pattern means that the cotton filler is consistent throughout the entire blanket, making it the thickest moving blanket in the industry. When you need maximum protection for your furniture, there is no other choice.

How & when to use ratchet straps and cam buckle straps

This video details the difference types of ratchet strap fittings, how to use a ratchet strap, and how ratchet straps and cam buckle straps are different.

Ratchet straps & cam straps

Ratchet straps and cam buckles are used to secure various types of cargo and come in various sizes from 1″ on up to 4″ widths.

The ratchet strap comes with many fittings: chain extensions, d-rings, e-track fitting, e-track double stud fitting, f-track hook and spring e-fitting, flat hook, flat snap hook, j-hook with d-ring, s-hook, and vinyl coated wire hooks.

Polyester webbing is used for cargo securement because of its low stretch rate. It’s also very abrasion-resistant.

How to thread a ratchet strap

To thread a ratchet strap, first open your ratchet a little bit so you have access to the take up spool. Now you slide the strap through the spool and bring it right back around on itself. At this point, pull on the strap to remove the excess slack. Once all the slack is removed you can start to ratchet to the tension you want, keeping the strap straight. Once you have reached your desired tension, lock the ratchet down in its closed position. To release the strap, open the ratchet all the way so it lays completely flat. Once it is flat, is in the release position. Go ahead and pull your strap out.

In some cases you may not need the strength of a ratchet strap. In those cases you would use a cam buckle.

Cam straps come with various fittings: butterfly fittings, e-track fittings, f-track hook and spring e-fittings, handlebar straps with s-hooks, flat snap hooks and s-hooks.

Cam buckles typically come in 1″ and 2″ sizes.

How to thread a cam buckle

To thread a cam buckle, turn the cam buckle over and feed the strap back through while pressing the thumb release. While pressing the thumb release, pull the strap to your desired tension, then release. To remove the strap, press the thumb button and simply pull the strap. You don’t have to pull the strap all the way out, just enough to get to your cargo.

In choosing between a ratchet strap and a cam buckle, it usually comes down to the working load limit, or how fragile the product is. If it is something light and fragile, choose a cam buckle since you’re not able to over-tension and possibly crush the product. If it’s anything heavier, less fragile, a ratchet strap is generally a better choice.
