There must be one tie down per article five feet or under or 1,100 lbs or less in weight. For articles that are larger or heavier than 5 feet or 1,100lbs, you must use two tie down straps. Any articles beyond 10 feet in length must be secured by two cargo straps, with another tie down strap for every additional 10 feet The question really comes down to the number of wraps (not layers) on the drum itself. The more wraps the less force is actually exerted on the u-bolt. I'm estimating that there were 3 total wraps on a 5 diameter winch using 3/8 cable Due to the low coefficient of friction, If AmSteel® or AmSteel® Blue winch lines are used, there must be at least eight wraps left on the drum while the line is being used. Level Winding: Using the appropriate amount of tension, wind the rope evenly, without spaces across the drum of the winch

Riding my motorcycle on the interstates, you could hear the straps on the flatbed loads singing away when they didn't have a 1/2 twist in them wraps must be added to the total travel distance to deter-mine the length of the wire rope needed for the application. a = length of anchor wraps in feet a = ((D + d) x πx N) ÷ 12 D = diameter of drum in inches d = diameter of wire rope in inches π = 3.14 N = number of anchor wraps (3 to 4), or if entire first layer N = ((drum width) ÷ d For example, many people like to connect their winch cable to a recovery point on the bumper and reel the winch cable in.

At 6,940 lbs. on the 5th wrap the winch would be drawing it's maximum amperage as if it was pulling 9,500 lbs. on the 1st wrap. The motor has no idea what wrap the cable is on, it's just pulling as hard as it can. Amp Draw is the amount of electrical current the winch will draw depending on how hard the winch is pulling The rated line pull of a winch used to be defined as, the weight the winch could dead lift for 1 foot with a constant 12 volt, (24 Volt in some systems), on the first layer with 5 wraps of wire rope on the drum.

The light weight and strength plus ease of handling while up in a tree make straps of synthetic rope a good first application (Figure 2). Synthetic straps are: ¾ EASILY SPLICED to desired length using long splice to form looped strap Working Load Limit or WLL refers to the maximum allowed weight. A winch strap with a WLL of 5,000 pounds, should not be used to secure any load above that weight. Working Load Limit is always 1/3 of the breaking strength. Therefore a strap with a breaking strength of 15,000 pounds, will have a Working Load Limit of 5,000 pounds Straps These are hooked to the ICC bar that runs along the edge of the trailer and thrown over the load and then secured in a winch using a winch bar. 4 inch straps (the number on most used): 5400 pounds 3 inch straps: 5000 pounds 2 inch straps: 3333 pound #1.
