    4500.
    I've never seen the come-a-long looking things. And those winch bars are longest one I've ever seen.

    Those are EZ-binders and I love them! Here is the Australian version







    the winch bars are normal size but the edge protector bar next them is long

    I watched the video , that's really slick. I've got a enclosed headache rack and carry 12 chains and 12 snap binders. If they wouldn't take up so much space I'd like to have some ez binders. I guess the picture just makes the winch bars look longer than they are. How much are the ez binders a piece?
     
    cke Thanks this.

    close on the overall $3473

    I bought 4 of the 5/16 binders ($125 )and 4 of the 3/8 binders for $153 each.

    they are expensive. They are worth it to us.

    From what i read on mytees site (where you got it i assume from the tarps)

    The binders sizings are for

    1/4-5/16 " chain but only good for 2500 lb ea
    5/16-3/8" chain at 5400 lb ea
    3/8-1/2" chain at 6600 lb ea

    So assuming you got 4x3/8 chain and 4x5/16? the smaller binders will work with all chains but bigger binders only your larger chains?

    I presume that this is because you have stuff to haul that 5/16 wont be rated high enough for?

    I dont dislike the binders, and starting new now, i think i might consider going for them, but not sure ill ever go that route though since i still have enough standard ratcheting and snap binders to last me a lifetime as long as i take care of them.

    Also... tax, didnt account for sales tax, darn it

    @skallagrime mytee is indeed where everything was ordered.

    I decided to upgrade 4 chains and binders because I have very limited knowledge on what we will be carrying and want to be prepared. The extra cost was about $5 per chain and $25 per binder to upgrade to 3/8.

    my wife hates the 3/8 because it is significantly heavier.:confused:


    Tax:mad:

    I don’t see any “Ratchet” binders….. and here’s a tip, go find some 1” tubing and get it cut to 4’, it will give you the leverage on the binder securements.
