Save your drivers time and reduce strain injuries using Crosby Speedbinders torque drive binder or lashing for load securement or relocating shifted loads.

Used by steel hauliers, big chain rental companies, construction, excavating, bobcats, heavy equipment and machinery moving companies across the USA.

Utilising a 24:1 extreme edge gearbox this unique tie down tool is operated using a cordless drill rather than a traditional manual "pawl" arm. The Speedbinder quickly allows you to secure loads to a maximum of 13,000lbs and 5/8" chain. 

G70 rated, the Speedbinder is finished in non-chip paint with zinc plated gearbox. Grease zerk is fitted as standard.

We recommend the use of the Dewalt XR cordless drill or equivalent Milwaukee tool product, but, the Speedbinder can be operated using a 14mm wrench or socket.

Versions available:

  • 6,600lb, 5/16" to 3/8" chain
  • 9,200lb, 3/8" to 1/2" chain
  • 13,000lb, 1/2" to 5/8" chain

Conforms to WSTDA-T-6 "Recommended Standard Specification For Load Binders Used With Chain Tie Downs"

How to operate

  1. Attach the handle to your drill to help curb the rotational forces that you will be applying. It is important to use both hands.
  2. We recommend setting the torque setting (dial on the collar) to seven to start. This gets most chains super tight. Adjust up or down the numerical range to best suit your needs.
  3. Run your slack in on second or third gear (look for the switch on top of the drill) and reduce down to first gear when you feel any hint of the drill pulling down.
  4. As your chain appears to be getting close to the desired tightness, ease on the trigger because you will begin to experience some twisting torque on the drill. This thing is powerful...again, it is important to use both hands.
  5. We have approved the use of a 3/8 impact. It is lighter, more manageable, and you can operate with one hand. Please do not use a 1/2 impact. This will void the warranty. The trade-off is that the drill gets the chains tighter, but you will have some twist to counter. The impact is easier to use and will wear the drive bolt a tad quicker. Drive bolts take about five minutes to replace.

FAQs — Crosby Speedbinders 

1. Who uses Speedbinders?

The main buyers are trucking professionals, but the product is targeted at anyone who operates, services, and maintains trucks and trailers. We have also sold them to people in equipment rental, manufacturing, haulage, recovery, and logging. 


2. Do I need to own a drill to use the Speedbinders?

Yes, you have to use a drill to use Speedbinders. We recommend the use of specific Milwaukee and DeWalt drills, but a quality 18-20 volt, high-torque drill is perfect too. 


3. Are there different sizes available?

Yes, three sizes: 5/16”-3/8”: working load limit (WLL) = 6,600 lb. (for 5/16” G70 chain) 3/8”-1/2“: WLL = 9,200 lb. (for 3/8” G70 chain) 1/2”-5/8”: WLL = 13,000 lb. (for 1/2” G70 chain) 


4. Do you have to have physical strength to use Speedbinders?

No. Anybody, regardless of strength, can achieve higher tension than using a traditional binder. This higher tension is achieved by 24:1 gear ratio and continuous torque with equal pull on the chain, resulting in tighter tie-downs, less movement of loads, and reduced risk of binders loosening in transit. 


5. How is the handle different to a traditional ratchet handle?

The handle is not a traditional ratchet handle; it is a reaction bar that is loaded with approx. 50 lb. of force. This helps keep the chain tension when driving over bumps. 


6. Do you need to make sure that the angle of the handle to the deck / load is low?

Yes, this helps to stop it from flipping over. The handle is offset to one side to help make sure there is a low angle. If the handle cannot rest against the deck it may be flipped to rest against the load instead. 


7. Is the product suited to use in confined spaces?

Yes, they can be used in confined spaces because there is no need to make sure there is enough space for a handle to move. This is useful when working in the middle of steel coils, over equipment, or flat against the deck, which cannot be achieved using traditional ratchet binders. 


8. Do you have to tie-down the load in sequence?

With the increased tension achieved with the Speedbinder, it is important that the binders are tied down in sequence, tightening the slack first and then pulling to correct tension. 


9. Is there a kickback when torquing down to final tension?

The drill will get a kickback when torquing down to final tension. You should hold the drill with both hands to avoid twisting your wrist or dropping the drill. 


10. How are Speedbinders protected against tampering?

A tool is required to loosen loads, while longer life is achieved by a sealed gearbox that keeps dust, sleet, salt brine, etc. out.


11. What is the maximum ‘take up’ on the Speedbinder?

The maximum ‘take up’ is 8 inches. Note that there is a maximum tightening load for each of the three models:

  • 6,000lb (3/8” chain)
  • 9,200lb (1/2” chain)
  • 13,000lb (5/8” chain)
