The product is called Dynello Spaceball™
The concept is very simple:
- First throw the blue ball over the goods,
- attach the carabiner hook to the strap-hook, and
- pull the lashing over.
- Reel the cord back onto the ball with a strap winder.
Like throwing a tennis ball
The low weight of the Dynello Spaceball™ puts minimal strain on your shoulder and back when you throw the ball over.
A wet lashing strap can easily weigh 2 kg. and thus be extremely stressful for the throwing-arm when 20 lashings have to be thrown over. If you already suffer from shoulder and back pain, this is considerably aggravated by these types of load-securing.
The Dynello Spaceball™ weighs a mere 200-250g (like the hook of a 5-ton lashing strap) and is the size of a large tennis ball.
You therefore get a significantly more ergonomic throw that does not strain your throwing arm as with normal.
In the video below Jens shows how the Dynello Spaceball™ can be used when it is not possible to throw the lashing over the goods normally.
