What are the criteria for discarding lashing straps?

A lashing strap is said to be ready for discarding if it meets the following criteria:
 
  • Damages may be max. 10% of the cross section (width as material thickness!)
  • excessive wear is present, e.g. due to abrasion
  • has damaged seams or has been improperly repaired
  • Rust due to improper storage
  • Deformations due to improper handling (e.g. tensioning the ratchet with an extension).
  • the webbing has been overstretched, e.g. also by using a lever extension
When a belt has therefore reached discard maturity must be decided on a case-by-case basis. You will find illustrated help with case studies in the detailed blog post: "Episode 29: Discard readiness of lashing straps - the criteria".
