Hello, Jacquelyn! We do not recommend using ratchet tie-downs around a mattress, as it will likely ruin the shape of the mattress. if you are attempting to move a mattress up stairs, we recommend something like the Mattress Mover carrying strap. I hope that is helpful!

To release tension, open the ratchet then press the release lever.

Truck User Instructions
"The RT Tie down can safely handle a maximum cargo weight of 800 lbs. (working load limit) and can accommodate unexpected forces up to 2,400 lbs. (break strength). If your pickup truck weighs more than 800 lbs, the RT tie down will not work, please select a tie down that has a working load limit exceeding the weight of your truck."
This is something that is very difficult to explain via text. I have two suggestions. Contact a local UHaul center and ask them to show you, or enter "ratchet tie down" in the YouTube search box. I checked YouTube and found videos that are extremely clear. If all fails, please call us at 1.866.277.6855. Thanks.
It can handle it, just make sure you use a few of them spread out evenly.
