WELCOME TO TRANSKING
From it’s humble beginnings, Transking has quickly gained a reputation in the transport industry as one of a “do-er”. Transking wanted much safer, more efficient products for the transport industry.
Through comprehensive and extensive research and development, Transking has come up with innovative products that will help the ever growing need for a safer transport industry. Transking award winning world first products designed here in Australia have now been accepted and adopted by many of leading transport companies. For over twenty years Transking have been developing Safety equipment for trucks.
Transking Tightwinder installed under the goose neck and over the drive for easier and safer access.
The Transking Tightwinder was originally developed to access difficult to get to places.
After many years Transking have further developed the world’s first two to one reduction angle drive load binder for trucks and trailers, it fits into a standard slide track and has a rotating gear head if required.
It has been the load security system of choice of many transport operators. It is up to four tonne rated to Aus standards and will take 50 mm 75m and 100mm strap. It has very little kick back when releasing tension, further reducing the possibility of injury and insurance claims, Its 32mm (wheel nut socket) virtually eliminates the possibility of bar slippage its two to one reduction gear box makes it so easy to obtain strap tension safer.

Transking founder Lindsay King interview Copy Southbound Podcast
Some people go through life leaving a massive impact and Lindsay King is one of those people. From an early start as a motor mechanic, Lindsay moved into express freight before getting a managerial role with the Overnighters in his late 20’s. His innovative ideas helped develop the legendary Batmobiles into transport folklore before he moved onto Vawdrey Trailers where he left a legacy in trailer design that will remain for years to come. We take our hat off to him and we know you will to.
INTRODUCING QUICKSTRAP MARK II
A win for Quickstrap MK II
TransKing has received critical acclaim for its Quickstrap MK II innovation which makes it easier, safer and quicker to secure loads
Beyond the safety application Transking believes that the use of Quickstrap in combination with Transking’s Tightwinder can save up to 50% of loading time.
This very practical product does it all – it creates long term savings, you get faster turn arounds and saves you money & insurance claims. Reduce the risk – protect against the risk of injury, reduce OH&S claims, and no more of that ever annoying winch bar kick back.

How and Why Cameron Logistics are using Transking Products
As standard Cameron Logistics specify Hendrickson HNL 7 INTRAAX suspension and axles with a 1.2 million kilometre-warranty. Included are the TransKing Tightwinder winches and Quickstrap MK II.
The Quickstrap system eliminates, according to Shane Coates, Glen Cameron Group Asset Manager, the need for drivers to climb steps so that they can pass or throw straps over the load.
“It can now be done safely with little effort from the ground using this system,” he says. “The driver just hooks the load binder strap into the Quickstrap using an extension pole and then pulls the strap across the load from the other side of the vehicle.”
Aside from the inherent efficiencies involved in their use, the TransKing winches, according to Greg, are most of all safe and make for a great initiative.
“As a process, it requires less effort of the driver to realise more down force than a standard drum winch,” he says. “The cantilever winch handle and clockwise rotation of the tensioner is devised to greatly reduce the risk of drivers slipping and hitting their face on the side of the vehicle. We now standardise the Quickstrap and Tightwinder product across our entire fleet.”

Feedback from week 1 of Transking Tightwinder trial by Pickering Transport Group
You have made a great change to peoples lives already ~ Tony Ray
Just made the job so much easier, as stated over drive and tri axles particularly. Used to bring my electric drill with a socket on 150mm extension and wind up straps automatically. Tightwinder has made unstrapping safer and winding straps in better for my old arthritic hands, am very impressed and very happy ~ Steve Kallisch
Tightwinder is great, the load hadn’t moved… they’re excellent over the drive guards where you can struggle with a bar to get in the binder hole. 10 out of 10! ~ Pongo

Transking’s philosophy is to develop innovative products to improve the safety throughout the transport industry. Transking’s innovative products are designed to reduce risks to the drivers and operators, at the same time, improving productivity.
