Terms & Definitions
AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARD INSTITUTE (A.N.S.I.) AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS (A.S.M.E.)
An organization of scientists, engineers and other professionals whose primary function is the development and writing of standards for implementation on a national level. These standards would apply to recovery straps, web slings, chain slings, blocks and hardware incorporated within this All-Grip Website. ASME B30.9, B30.10 and B30.26 standards apply.
OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION (0.S.H.A.)
A federal regulatory organization with broad national indictment and enforcement powers. One of 0.S.H.A.'s primary functions is the enforcement and regulation of those standards written by A.S.M.E., and adopted by 0.S.H.A. Their enforcement powers would apply to the use of all items found within this All-Grip Catalogue. CFR Titles 29 Part 1926.
COMMERCIAL SAFETY VEHICLE ALLIANCE (C.V.S.A.)
An organization of scientists, engineers and other professionals whose primary function is the development and writing of standards for implementation on a national level. These standards would apply to all tie downs including web, chain, wire rope, cordage, loadbinders and related tie down items incorporated within this All-Grip Website.
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (D.O.T.)
A federal regulatory organization with broad national enforcement powers. One of D.O.T.'s primary functions is the enforcement and regulation of those standards written by C.V.S.A., and adopted by D.O.T. Their enforcement powers would apply to the use of all types of tie-downs found within this All-Grip Website.
MINIMUM BREAK STRENGTH
ASSEMBLY MINIMUM BREAK STRENGTH (Tie down)
The load or force at which the weakest component part of the product fails. In general, a sewn section within a webbing tie down will be somewhat weaker than the web it is sewn from and therefore the sewn section would fail prior to the webbing failing. All numerical ratings used in this Website as an "Assembly Minimum Break Strength" apply to new, unused product. NOT A LOAD RATING.
WORKING LOAD LIMIT (W.L.L.)
The maximum load or force which should ever be applied to the product. The long standing federal standards on slings, regulated by 0.S.H.A. uses a typical design factor of 5 to 1; that is a resultant working load limit of 20%, of the assembly minimum break strength. (may vary on some products. ex. Alloy Chain uses a 4 to 1 factor) The newly written C.V.S.A. standards on tie downs enforced by the D.O.T. use a typical design factor of 3 to 1; that is a resultant working load limit of 33% of the assembly minimum break strength.
RECOVERY STRAPS AND SLINGS
Those devices found within this All-Grip Website that are primarily used for lifting and hoisting applications. These devices fall under the standards of A.M.S.E. which are adopted and enforced by 0.S.H.A. The exception is the Web "V" sling which is not a sling and should not be used for hoisting or lifting.
Those devices found within this All-Grip Website that are primarily used for restraint, securement and containment of loads. (Vehicles) These devices fall under the standards of C.V.S.A. which are adopted and enforced by the D.O.T. as well as 0.S.H.A.
A vehicle part or permanently attached fixture to which a tie down or tie down attachment is secured.
SNUBBERS or TARP STRAPS

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS ITEM IN ANY LOAD BEARING APPLICATION!!!
