I have 4 of what I would guess is the 'older' model, and work very nice. I recently purchased 3 more 1/4" rope ratchets from Discount Ramps, thru Amazon: one of the new three would not 'hold' under normal tension. Contacted Amazon via their email return instructions, they passed on situation to Discount Ramps. I had 1 minute response from Amazon, that request sent. Within a half hour, D.R. emailed they were aware of situation, and offered refund or replacement of failed Item.Asked for replacement, and received it, postpaid, in 3 days-excellent service from both parties-Amazon easy, quick contact to vendor, vendor's ( D.R.) quick response was a real nice surprise ! I use the rope ratchets for tie-downs,(kayaks) so much easier than fumbling around with the usual strap ratchet confusion- ( ok, now how do these things work again?) A rope ratchet is so simple- attach the single hook to what ever anchor point-say an eyebolt, secure ratchet body hook to other actor point, and simply pull the rope. Thats it. over and done. To release, simply apply slight pull on the free end of rope while lifting the obvious release lever, and it's free wheeling loose. To store it, I pull all excess rope thru ratchet to have both hooks close together, gather loose rope up, store in a sandwich baggie- makes it so much easier to use next time- no bothersome tangles of loose rope. just hook, hook and pull. Cant get any easier
