ERLANGER, Ky. – Ancra International has unveiled the next generation of its SilverCap ratchet-cap winch. The self-contained system now features GrimeGuard, an extra weather-tight seal which is designed to protect the device’s key moving parts from moisture and road grime. The next generation SilverCap also has been engineered with a tamper-resistant centre shaft with locking threads which is designed to hold the ratchet-cap fast so it cannot be removed.
“These new improvements make the SilverCap an essential piece of equipment for any fleet manager, truck owner, operator, driver or loader who knows the crucial roles safety and efficiency play in their operation. It’s a no-brainer,” said Ralph Abato, director of sales and marketing for the cargo systems division of Ancra International.
Officials say the patented SilverCap eliminates the repetitive insertion and removal of the winch bar each time straps are tightened down to secure a load to a trailer. Functioning like a socket wrench, it’s designed to allow the winch bar to remain in place in the ratchet-cap while the load straps are cranked tight. Strap tension does not slip, and the danger of the winch bar snapping back and injuring users is drastically reduced, Abato said. For more information visit www.ancra.com.
