Retail / Tie Down Ratchet Mechanism
English term or phrase: RETRACTABLE BALL
This specially designed tie down strap includes a ratchet that has a retractable ball that automatically winds up the excess webbing (strap).

Please find the product here:

The phrase I'm struggling with is:
RETRACTABLE BALL AUTOMATICALLY WINDS UP WEBBING...

My attempt is:
LE MÉCANISME DE RAPPEL ENROULE AUTOMATIQUEMENT LA SANGLE...

I'm translating the functionality of the ball and not it's actual name right now. I can't think of a better way to translate it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
