Pole binders are provided at each bolster position. Where pole hubs are present, wrap the strap under the first binder hub, around the pole or poles, under the second binder hub and secure at the hook provided at the opposite end of the trailer. Tighten the binder strap at the EZ Torque winch with the winch handle provided. The EZ Torque winch does not lose strap tension when used with 2–4 wraps of strap on the winch shaft per the manufacturer’s recommendations. Too many wraps on the winch shaft can cause a situation where the strap can lose tension depending on the level of tension in the strap. According to the manufacturer, but not verified with our testing, less than two wraps can also cause a situation where the strap can lose tension because there are not enough wraps to hold the end of the strap in place on the shaft.
