This type of strap binder 03 which comprises a binder body 90, a primary strap 71 and a secondary strap 72, both with a hook 80 attached to it. Wherein, the hook 80 is in a somewhat "8" shape. The hook which comprising a shackle portion 82 and a connecting ring portion 81. As shown in FIG. 2, the binder body 90 which comprising a base 92, a reel 91 which hinged jointed onto the base 92, a ratchet 94 which fixed on the two sides of the reel 91, and a lever 93 that hinged jointed onto the reel 91. The back end of the primary strap 71 is attached to the reel of the strap binder 03, and the back end of the secondary strap 72 is attached to a beam 921 which fixed onto the base 92. The base 92 is provided with a first spring piece 922, and the lever 93 is provided with a second spring piece 931. As shown in FIG. 4, when the lever 93 swings back and forth around the reel 91, the second spring piece 931 engages and disengages with the teeth on the ratchet 94 and causes the ratchet 94 to turn. The turning of the ratchet 94 then causes the reel 91 to turn and the turning of reel 91 causes the retraction of the primary strap 71. When the first spring piece 922 is in engaging position with the teeth on the ratchet 94, the turning of ratchet 94 is restricted. In combination with FIG. 2 and FIG. 3, the sides of the base 92 that is hinge jointed with the reel 91 is provided with a first arc-shaped protrusion piece 923, the top side of the arc-shaped protrusion 923 is provided with a bayonet 924, the lever 93 is hinge jointed onto the end of reel 91 with a second arc-shaped protrusion 932. As shown in FIG. 2, a user could pull on the second spring piece 931 allowing the second spring piece 931 to disengages from the ratchet 94, and then, turns the lever 93 away from the base 92. When the user releases the second spring piece 931, the second spring piece then engages with the bayonet 924 of the first arc-shaped protrusion piece 923; at the same time, the second arc-shaped protrusion 932 disengages the first spring piece 922 from the ratchet 94. As such, the first spring piece 922 and the second spring piece 931 are both disengaged from the ratchet 94, and the user can pull on the primary strap 71 to loosen the primary strap 71.

[0053] As shown in FIG. 5, in the hook storage compartment 30, the second coupling slots 34 are arranged on the storage base 01 and each of the coupling slots 34 is symmetrically arranged at the two sides of the strap storage slot 10. The second coupling piece 33 crosses the strap storage slot 10. As shown in combination of FIG. 12 and FIG. 13, the second coupling piece 33 is provided with a vertically arranged positioning rod 331. The positioning rod 331 is inserted into the hooks 80 on the strap connecting ring 81 (as shown in FIG. 15 and FIG. 16). As shown in combination of FIG. 12 and FIG. 13, the second coupling piece 33 which further comprising a cross section 332 and a pair of coupling section 333. The pair of coupling section 333 are symmetrically arranged below the two ends of the cross section 332. The positioning rod 331 connects with the middle bottom surface of the cross section 332. Wherein, the coupling section 333 which comprising a coupling section 3331, a guiding section 3332, a limiting section 3333, a supporting section 3334 and a holding section 3335. Where, the coupling section 3331 is horizontally arranged and the guiding section 3332 is vertically arranged. The coupling section 3331 connects evenly with the two ends of the coupling section 3331. The limiting section is arranged horizontally above the coupling section 3331 and the front end of the limiting section levels with the back end of the coupling section 3331. The supporting section 3334 is arranged vertically on the bottom surface of the guiding section 3332; where the guiding section 3334 is near the back end of the guiding section 3332. The holding section 3335 connects with the back end of the guiding section 3332 and is arranged above the back end of the guiding section 3332. As shown in FIG. 14, the second coupling slot 34 which comprising an elongated slot 340, and a top wall 341. The elongated slot 340 which comprising a pair of long sidewalls and a pair of short sidewalls. The top wall 341 is horizontally arranged above one corner of the elongated slot 340. The top wall 341, one of the elongated sidewalls, one of the short sidewalls and the base of the elongated slot 340 form a coupling slot 342 for receiving the coupling section 3331. The top wall 341 and the other elongated sidewall form a guiding slot 343 for guiding the guiding section 3332. The top wall 341 and the other short sidewall 3402 form a limiting slot 344 for the limiting section 3333. The base of the supporting section 3334 engages with the bottom of the elongated slot 340. The short sidewalls 3402 of the elongated slot 340, away from the top wall 341 is provided with a limiting step 345. The sidewalls of the limiting step 345 offset with the sidewalls of the supporting section 3334.

[0054] As shown in FIG. 15 through FIG. 17, when storing the strap binder 03, the primary strap 71 and the secondary strap 72 are folded then stored in the strap storage slot 10. The hook on the primary strap 71 and the secondary strap 72 are stacked on top of each other and then inserted into the hook cover 31. The hooks then are rested on the pair of storing steps 32 of the hook storing compartment 30. Where the width of the storing steps 32 are equal to the width of the hooks. And then, the second coupling piece 33 are coupled with the second coupling slots 34, and at the same time, the positioning rod 331 is inserted into the connecting ring 81 of the hook 80. With the pressing force from the positioning rod 331 and the hook cover 31, the hooks 80 are secured in the hook storage compartment 30. The binder body 90 is placed in binder body storage compartment 20. More particularly, the binder body base 92 couples with the pair of coupling walls 22, the wide hook 21 hooks onto the reel 91 on the binder body 90, and the concave arc section 231 of the first coupling piece 23 couples with the beam 921 on the binder body base 92.
