I love these straps. They have a great handle on them to grab for really tightening down. The carabiner is great and prevents the strap from coming undone when you're trying to load up. The soft loops are a bonus..makes it nice that you can tie off anything and anywhere without the worry of pinching things or damaging paint or finish.
If you need the extra tensioning capacity of a ratcheting tie down, these are a great value. Decent quality stitching and soft webbing makes these straps feel premium and prevents stretching. Ratchets are very sturdy, but will mar plastics and graphics if you're not careful. Generally, the ratchet handles are a bit on the wide side which makes it a bit more likely they will ding your gear. These would be ideal for strapping down something wide and heavy like an adventure/street bike, but for a dirtbike the slimmer profile and operation of a thumb buckle is preferable.
I love these tie downs, the carabiner gives you a little added security that it wont slip out of the whole or fall off completely, and the soft loop makes going around handlebars or parts of the frame a lot easier
These are nice heavy duty straps. The ratcheting mechanism is heavy and solid. I have 2 minor complaints. 1 the caribiner is a little smaller than I thought it would be. I have other straps of this same size and the caribiner is bigger. Difficult to get on/off the D rings on my trailer. 2. I wish they came put together with a stop on the strap. You have to feed the strap onto the ratchet side when you get them, easy enough, but I have other straps that come together and the longer size is doubled over and sewn so it won't pull out if you pull it a little too far.
I have these same straps without the caibiner and they work great. I would buy again, just open hooks on both sides.
If you need tie downs, these are the best. We ride everywhere and these are the best tie downs I've used. The one end is a spring type clevis so you can drill a hole in the trailer or buy eyelets so it never comes unhooked when the road gets rough and the built-in soft loops don't damage the the finish on the handle bars. The ratchet needs a little chain lube every now and then, but they're great.
Ill never buy another set of straps again. These make tying a bike down a breeze. I love the carabiner feature and the ratchet is very durable. Smoothest ratchet system I have used. Awesome product at a great price
I have several pairs of these after searching for my ideal strap. Having the clip at the bottom keeps the strap anchored to your truck/van/trailer while loading your bikes. These have the upper hook stationary so that the built in soft loop can pass around tight spots without having to feed the hook through.
Love these straps. Have several pairs. They work great to hold down atv's on the trailer or in the toy hauler. These straps are shorter than many so there's not as much extra to deal with. I also love the soft loops to avoid scratches on the toys.
I bought these because they have all three features I wanted: ratchet action, softloop tie downs and carabiner attachment points. I like the carabiner as opposed to just a hook because they stayed hooked and oriented while loading the bike by myself.
So far seem to be very durable. I have had them for a while now and have left them out in the weather a few times on accident and the ratchet mechanism still functions perfectly.
I've ordered several sets of these tie downs, they are so great. The carabiner on one end is helpful because it doesn't come unhooked while you are trying to hook the other end. The soft loop on the other end is good for handlebars or other parts so the hooks don't rub your paint off. Ratchets are way more secure than the pull-strap kind of tie downs that have come loose before. These are the only kind of tie downs I buy now. Only caveat is that they are kind of short, so not as useful for large loads, but great for tying down bikes and other things.
Ordered tie downs, RMATV shipped them fast. Excellent product used them today. It's always a huge relief when you order a product, receive it, and it works better than expected. Wished I would have bought them sooner. Don't wait like I did-get them now.
These are the ultimate motorcycle straps. They use a carabiner for the bottom so when you grab the strap they don't slip out of the hook. Even if the bike pops loose for some reason, they won't come undone.
The tops have soft loops which are also super secure around the handlebars and keep from scratching the bars. Ratchets make it easy to tighten against a fork brace. I also use these to secure the rear tire to another anchor. The soft loops fit perfect around a rear wheel through the spokes.
These straps work better than expected. I did not think I would like these but they are easy to use. You must be careful when you release the strap. If you are not carefule when you release the strap, it will release too fast. I love not having to get on the bike to compress the forks. The rachets pull it down easily. I will be buying another couple of sets. I wish they came in different colors. Love the Carabiner.
Quality is very good, metal is good quality and very solid, I had to cut the strap down a bit because the ratchet can only hold about a foot of strap and the strap is 1metre ++ !! Would of probably got the buckle ones If I had known!! Ah well, great price and service from RMATV.
Excellant quality. Ratchet is solid, carabiner is heavy duty. Tensil strength is 4,000#'s but no working strength is listed. I'm guessing, based on the quality of the strap, that the working strength is around 1,200#'s. That's pretty darn good. They hold my 2010 Honda Rancher 420's (625#'s each) in place without any movement at all (4 straps each). Glad I bought them. Will be buying another 2 sets to use on my Goldwing.
