I work for a construction company and haul equipment.we run chain from one side of the trailer thru the eye on the equipment to the other side of the trailer.use a binder on one side to tighten the chain and wrap the extra chain around and under the tightened chain.the replies here make me wonder if this is considered "correct".and what does wll mean?thanks
