Today we are going to review part number 34414 from Erickson Manufacturing. What we have here is a 6 foot retractable tie down. A few specs about the tie down: it is 2 inches wide and 6 foot long and the texture of the strap feels much like a seat belt. The working load limit on this is 1,333 pounds. It has a maximum load capacity of 4,000 pounds. And also, the hooks are covered in a plastic material, so you do not mar up anything you are tying down. For instance, when you wrap this around the handle bars of a motorcycle or something on the frame of your vehicle, or whatever you do not want to get scratched up. :39
The great thing about this product is that the straps are self storing, you do not have any extra strap flapping in the wind, or have to worry about tying them down before you hit the road. What we are going to use this on is a stack of tires. We are working with a trailer that is actually 6 foot 5inches, so what we will do is use 2 straps, which come in the kit. :57
First off, you want to leave the ratchet handle completely flat, and then push down on the red button which releases the strap and then go ahead and pull out the strap. Take the one end and attach it to the load of tires, hook it to the center and pull the rest of the strap out and hook up to our other tie down point. Then take up our slack, we can use it as a conventional ratchet. Push the button down once again to unlatch it, and go ahead and take up the slack. Lets go ahead and put one on the other side to equalize the pressure. Then we will have our tires safely tied down. 1:50
Alright, now you can see that we have our ratchet reeled up and we do not have any extra strap blowing around in the breeze. In a few simple steps we are already done with our review of part number 34414 from Erickson Manufacturing.
