BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs - IMF14256

2" Wide x 43' long G2 tie-downs make securing your boat's stern to your trailer hassle-free. They feature a quick-release, self-retracting design, stainless steel construction, and permanent bolt-on installation. 1,500 lbs Max load.

  • Heavy-duty, retractable ratchet straps easily secure your boat's transom (stern) to your trailer
    • Tighten down quickly with SUR-Grip rubber-coated handle - easy to grip and control with one hand
  • Push-button release and self-retracting design allow for easy, rapid loading and unloading

  • Permanently mounts to your trailer with 1 bolt
  • Durable construction offers long-lasting performance

Specs:

  • Strap dimensions: 2" wide x 43" long
  • Mounting hardware dimensions: 3/8" diameter x 2" long
  • Maximum load strength (break strength): 1,500 lbs
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 500 lbs
  • Quantity: 2 transom (stern) straps
  • 1-Year limited warranty


BoatBuckle's second-generation transom tie-down straps bolt to the rear crossmember of your trailer and simplify the securing and unloading of your boat. These corrosion-resistant, stainless steel tie-downs are designed to keep constant tension on the strap and require minimal ratcheting to secure your load. Instead of always having to find and store tie-down straps that hook to the transom anchors on your boat, you will find that BoatBuckle's straps are always right where you need them. Just pull up on the hook and strap, attach the hook to the transom anchor, and then ratchet the a few several times. No more dealing with extra webbing or looking for the tie-down strap. And when unloading, simply push the release button on the ratchet, free the hook from the transom anchor, and let the strap retract back down into the ratchet.


You can mount the ratchet with the included bolt directly to the trailer frame or crossmember. If you need to angle the ratchet strap or move it a little farther off the frame, a universal mounting kit (IMF14254; sold separately) is available.


Note: Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a set of gunwale tie-downs. All straps and cables should be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). To determine the maximum load, or break strength, of the strap, simply multiply the WLL by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Video Transcript for BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs Trailer Cargo Control IMF14256 Review

Today we are going to review Part Number IMF14256. These are the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting, Transom Tie-Down Straps. These tie-downs will make securing your boats transom to your trailer quick and hassle free. They feature a quick release, self-retracting design. They are stainless steel construction and are a permanent bolt-on installation. These will tighten down quickly with the sure-grip rubber coated handle which makes it easy to grip and control with one hand.

The dual push button release is on each side and when the button is pushed, it releases the strap to extend out and it does retract back automatically. They do have a vinyl coated steel S hook which will help protect your boats finish. They do include the mounting hardware which will allow you to permanently mount to your trailer with the one bolt on each one. They do have a stainless steel body. The ratchet is a seatbelt quality polyester webbing all inside a sturdy plastic housing and on the inside is a stainless steel spring.

The dimension on the strap is 2 inches wide and 43 inches long. They have a maximum load strength or a breaking strength of 1,500 pounds. The actual safe working load limit would be one-third of that, or 500 pounds. This part number does include two transom ratchet straps and the mounting bolts. They do come with a one year limited warranty.

Just a quick demonstration; you actually bolt these ratchet straps to the rear cross member of your trailer and then you just extend them out and attach it to the transom anchors on your boat, like that. With the release button down, that will allow the strap to move in and out. When you pull up on the handle, it will lock in the release buttons. Underneath there is a little lever that when you hold up on that and then move the handle, that will allow you to ratchet it up and tighten down the transom of your boat to your trailer. Once it is all tight, you are ready to go.

When you are ready to unload the boat, you just push down on either side, the release button, remove the S Hook from your transom anchor and the strap will retract back into the housing. That should do it for Part Number IMF14256.

Same comments/issues as with the bow tie down. The supplied bolts and nuts, in this case stainless steel material, could NOT be made up all the way and had to be cut off and replaced with bolts and nuts from a local hardware store. The supplied bolts and nuts have a self locking design that gets very tight after the nut is threaded on one full nuts worth. Then, no matter what tool, or size of cheater bar you use, you cannot tighten the nut the rest of the way on the long bolts. Especially laying on the driveway under a boat trailer, where your movements are constrained and all wrench slippage is punished by busted knuckles on a galvanized trailer. I had to cut the supplied bolts and nuts off and replace them with SS bolts and nuts from the hardware store, and use lock washers instead of the self locking nut design that came with the tie-down straps. I suggest the manufacturer drop their self locking design and start issuing lock washers immediately. Otherwise, the buckle design is convenient and good to use. 127896

Thanks for asking. I love the service. I love the ratchet device, just what I wanted. The two mounting bolts that came with the unit were unusable. The first lock nut seized a good quarter inch before it could be tightened. I could not move it in either directions. Had to take reciprocating saw and cut bolt shank to remove. The second one I tried in my vice before I tried on boat trailer (just encase, the ole fool me once deal). This lock nut also seized about half way down the bolt shank. I literally bent the bolt shaft trying to back the nut off with a breakover bar. So, I used the bolts and nuts that I had removed from the old ratchet device I was replacing. It appears nuts and bolts were cheaply made from China. Nut should not have seized, and, I should not have been able to bend a 7/16" shank. 139638

awesome product! If you have used the old cam buckle type straps then this will change your fishing/boating experience. Easy to install and easy to use. Pull the strap up and hook it on your boat, pull up on the ratchet handle, and done. When launching, use the release lever and the strap retracts. You will not have to remove the straps and store them while on the water. What took me so long? Well worth the investment and I bought the stainless that should last forever. Buy these and you will thank yourself, buy them as a gift and they will thank you every time they put the boat in the water! 110243

I had these on my boat trailer for 5 years and they are awesome. I believe my original ones are not stainless so I opted for the upgrade to stainless this time, at almost double the cost, I think these will last even longer than the previous buckles. I mostly boat in salt water so stainless is a must. They fit great and work great, much better and easier than a transom strap all the way across the stern of the boat, these hold the boat tight in place. 84349

I Purchased a set of Stainless Steel G2 BoatBuckel from e trailer. The same product is used by Ranger boats for their boats except with a Ranger logo. at twice the price. I found BoatBuckle was more expensive on other internet sites including e bay when shipping is included.. e trailer provided free shipping. I am very please with my purchase and would purchase other products from e trailer in the future. 105134

Combined with the free shipping I could not come close to matching the Etrailer price anywhere on the web and I am an avid Internet shopper. The communication of orders processing was quick and thorough and the product was shipped and delivered in the time expected. They even packaged the products well to make sure of no damage. I will definitely recommend this company to a friend. 143417

You will need the universal mounting kit in most applications unless u want to drill holes in your trailer. The stainless steel nuts and bolts are junk and will lock up after a turn or 2. Both of mine had to be replaced. Just so you know the universal mounting kit is steel and the hardware is steel so while your at the hardware store make sure to get stainless nuts and bolts for those also. 134398

Discovered the bolts and nuts were not matched, causing severe damage to the bolt threads. Contacted manufacturer and they apologized, explaining that their hardware supplier inadvertently got a batch of the bolts and nuts mixed up. Replacement bolts and matching nuts would be sent to me asap - problem solved.....otherwise it is a great product and the hardware is tops, very strong!! 166243

Fast shipping, great price and good product. These blow away the rod saver retractable ratchet hooks that I had on the boat until now. Stainless is a must in the back of the boat. The mechanisms get doused in water every time the boat gets launched. The rod savers were on the boat for 3 years and they were already too corroded to work well. 126635

The threads of the bolts and the nuts did not line up. I was very careful not to cross-thread, but half way on the threads would bind up no matter what I did. I have only mounted one at this point because I had to use the bolts from the optional mounting brackets. They worked fine. There is a problem with the bolts that are included. 154370

Although not installed on my trailer yet, these are obviously a quality product. They are of heavy, solid construction and are easy to operate. These are bolted to the boat trailer, with provided bolts and the strap simply retracts when not in use. Etrailer sells some of the best marine products on the market at very good prices. 129479

SS bolt and nut are very poor quality. It is almost impossible to turn the nut and bolt, so hard to turn it that it gets hot and you can even smell it. Made in Taiwan, maybe it is just a bad batch I have not contacted the mfg yet. Also, instruction suck! 87637

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


we living in a fly fishing community and strapping down the driftboats was showing some wear and tear where the straps went. these save you from all the hassle and they are so much easier to use. we have gotten our second pair for a friend of ours, i figure by next spring these buckles will be catching on, can I get a commission? ;) 100430

we have converted three others to get away form the whole strap ideal. I live in a flyfishing community and around all guides and the ones that have gone to the buckles are so happy about the hassle free and no wear and tear to their drift boats. very happy with the product.

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


Great ratcheting tie-down design. The only problem I have with it is the bolt and self locking nut that come with it. You can easily screw the nut on until all threads in the nut are engaged, and then it gets tight, very tight. After a few more rounds you are looking for a cheater bar, then a power tool. The bolts are longer than necessary, so you have a lot of thread to tighten the nut onto. On the Stainless Steel bolt and nut, the threads gall and stop any further tightening. I replaced all bolts and nuts with Stainless Steel bolts and nuts, with lock washers, from a local big box hardware store. Because of the issues with the nuts and bolts, this one hour job wound up taking 4-5 hours, and was frustrating to do. I suggest the manufacturer change to issuing lock washers and stop using the self locking design they use now. It is a very real problem in installation. And, no, the three bolts and nuts I assembled were NOT cross threaded. I was able to get a full nut on each bolt by hand without problem before the self locking design tightened up. 127895

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


I found the BoatBuckle G2 retractable Transom Tie-Downs an awesome addition to my boating experience. A pleasure to use. However, I had a problem with the bolts they include in the package. They were longer than necessary and , with the amount of torque needed to tighten the lock nut, ended up cross threaded. It was so tightly cross threaded, I had to cut the bolt off. I called tech support and they sent me alternative set of hardware and it worked like a charm. Their product support is excellent! The only product issue I had was, when you read the instructions, it indicated you should check the tie downs after 3 miles, and something like every 20 miles after that. I have only used them 3 or 4 times, and on one occasion, I found that the normal bouncing of the trailer, had allowed one of them to come loose. Easy enough to tighten, but you will need to check them from time to time. If they ever fix that issue, I would give it the highest rating. 51465

Product delivery went well making this purchase the right choice. The retractable tie-down strap is well made, easy to use and easy to install. I have two on the stern of my boat trailer that I like much so went with the bow tie-down. I travel long distances with my boat and I want to make sure the bow is secured to the trailer so there is no bouncing. A bow winch strap does not always do the job. Play it safe and get a bow tie-down. 104234

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


First off, etrailer rocks. Anything I order from them arrives so fast it's scary. I just put these on my boat and I really like the way they work and the ease of use. Also, the rubber backing is nice to keep the buckle from scratching up the boat. The only negative I could find with these is the rivets that form the hinge on them seems a bit wimpy. They are a bit overly long and small in diameter for the holes they are in, so they seem to flop around a bit and are at an angle when the buckles are locked. I could see myself replacing these with small nuts and bolts in the future. Otherwise, these things are absolutely perfect boat straps. 153930

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


I would highly recommend these to anyone wanting both convenience and quality in a ratcheting tie-down system. The ratchets use a single bolt to attached (can be attached to the old tie-down location) and is quickly and easily installed. The ratchet and strap system are of top quality. I can now install my tie-downs in one-fifth the time. A very innovative mechanism is used to both tighten and loosen the strap. One precaution is the bolt and nut are not the same thread standard so the nut takes some muscling to install. I believe the manufacturer purposely did this to ensure the nut will not become loose once installed. 86184

I had the same straps that lasted me five yrs. They frayed near clamps from friction to the piont of breaking.Ordered them agian and planning to be bit carefull that strap does not run to close to the metal edges when clamping.I like these because on my boat trailer the transom hook plate is easy to hookup straps standing up, then hook to boat transom eye hook adjust and clamp.The ratchet stile are nice but they require you to bend down to ratchet .Good for the young guys.I like to keep things simple,my old ones never loosend while trailerilng.So for the price i will use these again.Will keep the old ones for back ups. 85467

Review from a similar BoatBuckle G2 in Cargo Tie Downs


Once installed, it will work great. However, there is limited space on the unit in which to place a socket or wrench to tighten the mounting bolt. The nut for the bolt required an excessive amount of effort to tighten. The bolt was very long ; so long that the nut could not be fully tightened without an open-end wrench, even tho I had deep-well sockets. I understand that a long bolt can cover the many possibilities for the thickness of various trailer frames, but better information on the website about its size and how to install would be helpful 151279

My Regal 1900ES bowrider didn't come with transom tie downs but I wanted the peace of mind they offer. I purchased these BoatBuckle ratchet straps based on seeing them on numerous trailers at our boat ramp and the favorable rating on this website. Like others have noted, the supplied bolt/nut pretty much requires a torque wrench to install. I purchased a few grade 8 bolts/washers/nuts from hardware store to use instead. Otherwise, love the convenience of the ratchet system. 134652

I have looked at and used several different tie downs. These are of much better quality than our local boat dealer who charges almost double for his product (sold singularly for almost what I paid for the set.)

I like to shop where my business seems to be appreciated. 61919

Seems to be very good quality; I bought as a replacement for Ranger ratchet downs that are used to cinch the tie-down loops on the cover. Backplate is identical to Ranger and slides on transom stud just as originals. I'm guessing Ranger uses same company to produce their equipment using the Ranger logo. I'm very happy with product/price! Shipped very next day! I'll come back to e-trailer if needing future parts. 122244

I got these for a 12 ft. 1975 Jon Boat. The Transom of these boats are so light, that it shifts left or right from bumps or wind currents. I saw these somewhere , and priced them. eTrailer beat the rest out there on costs, shipping and reliability. I would put these on a 2000 lb. Boat and not worry . Much easier to use and clamp and adjust than the other straps/ pulls out there. WORTH their weight in GOLD. 85413

I have had Boat Buckles on my previous boat of 12 years ago & have hardly no problems. Each year I sprayed the mechanical parts with WD due from boat sitting outside in the weather. The straps did not have any signs of age. Now I have a new boat & one of the first things I did to it was buy another pair of these. I had to purchase longer bolts for my setup on trailer but who cares. They work great ! 152653

Easy to install--attached to an existing bolt for the spare tire holder. Easy to use and works great to hold down the bow of a 16' skiff. I sprayed all metal parts I could reach with CRC Heavy Duty Corrosion Inhibitor. Will be interested to see how long the tiedown holds up in a saltwater environment. Only a couple of weeks old at this point. 152783
