Dennis,


Great idea!  A little more searching and I found a much earlier patent for a "Self-locking load-binder" in 1889.

Not much between there and the one you found.

The load binders are a very interesting detail.  Does anyone know when they entered common use?  Would they be used during WWII for example?

Earliest patent a quick search found was 1949.

That cites a 1932 application for a steamboat towing ratchet.

Apparently larger, for making up barge lashings.
