The automatic rewinding safety straps on the Escalera
Stairclimbing Handtrucks work the same way as a seat belt in a car. They can be mounted at
different heights on the handtruck and can easily be used to secure the heaviest of loads.
The automatic rewinding safety straps are lightweight, and self-contained. Because they
rewind into the side frame when they are not in use, you will never have loose straps
dangling down by your feet. A simple to use thumb-style lock secures the strap for
tightening. Every Escalera Stairclimbing Handtruck ships with one automatic rewinding
safety strap included as standard. Additional straps are optional.
Hang the male strap on the peg provided on the
side frame for easy and convenient storage and access.
For tall, heavy loads, like vending machines, it is a good
idea to have a second strap in the upper position. The second strap helps stabalize the
load as well as secure it to the handtruck.
