Note: Tie-down straps must be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). The weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined WLL of the straps being used. For example, if you are using straps with a WLL of 500 lbs each to tie down a load weighing 1,000 lbs, then you need at least 2 straps to safely secure that load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.


ShockStrap UTV Tie-Down Kit

This one-of-a-kind tie-down kit is perfect for strapping down your UTV to your truck bed or trailer. It includes 4 cam straps with built-in shocks to keep the straps tight around your UTV so that you won't have to stop and tighten them while traveling.


Unlike traditional straps, which don't stretch or contract, these tie-downs are uniquely designed with built-in shock absorbers that allow each strap to maintain constant tension on your bike as you travel. These are great for UTVs, which have bouncing suspension systems that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain.


Built-In Shocks

The webbing of standard straps can't stretch or contract to absorb impacts. As a result, standard tie-downs might become detached from their anchor, or they become slack around your UTV as it shifts.


Close up of the Shock on the 7-foot ratcheting ShockStrap

But these cam buckle straps each feature a built-in urethane shock that's designed to absorb impact and to allow give. This ensures that the tie-down stays taut and won't loosen over time. The built-in shock helps to keep the tie-down from coming loose or failing, which could result in lost or damaged toys.


In addition, the shocks ensure a longer life for the strap webbing. The constant compressing and rebounding of your UTV's suspension during travel can wreak havoc on ordinary straps. The webbing is likely to experience more wear and tear as it rubs along your gear. But the ShockStrap's shocks absorb these jolts so that the webbing of the tie-downs stays put instead of wearing over the edges of your equipment.


How to Use the ShockStrap UTV Tie-Down System

Once your UTV is loaded in your truck or on your trailer, engage its parking brake. Next, you'll want to scope out 4 anchor points on the UTV, preferably on its frame.


Back view of an UTV tied down using the 7-foot ratcheting ShockStrap tie downs

Attaching the tie-downs to the frame is ideal. The tension from the straps on this part of the vehicle will compress the UTV's suspension just enough (about halfway) to maintain tension when you hit bumps on the road. The tension should prevent sway and bouncing, which could otherwise loosen the straps or allow them to become detached from their anchor points.


There are 4 straps included in this kit - 2 for use on the front of your UTV and 2 for use on the rear. When you attach the tie-down straps to your truck or trailer, be sure to anchor them so that the UTV is pulled down at all 4 corners.


To use these tie-downs, attach one of the durable hooks to a desired anchor point on your truck or trailer. Use the built-in retention clip to make sure that the hook doesn't detach from the anchor. Then secure the other hook to a point on the UTV.


There are soft loops built into each strap as well, so that you can tie down your UTV without having to worry about the metal hooks or hardware of the straps potentially scratching or scuffing it. To use the soft loops, simply cinch the strap around a secure location on the UTV, and run the tie-down's hook through the loop.


Once the hooks are in place, tighten the webbing around the load and activate the shocks. To tighten each strap, crank the ratchet mechanism until the webbing is taut around your UTV. Be sure not to overtighten the strap. If your hand cannot fit between the shock and the safety strap, the strap is too tight.


Activated 7-foot ratcheting ShockStrap tie down

To activate the shocks, tighten the straps a bit more, stretching the shocks until light is visible through the bolt holes in each shock. In warm climates, the shocks can stretch up to 2", while in subzero climates you may only get about 1/2" of give.


Once the straps have been tightened and the shocks have been activated, just make sure your UTV is completely secure and then tie off any extra slack.


Strong, Durable Construction

The sturdy, UV-resistant polyester webbing of these tie-down straps has a high tolerance for abrasion and water absorption.


The shocks are made of urethane, which can withstand elements such as sunlight, saltwater, moisture, oil, fungi, and most chemicals. These shocks can function in nearly any temperature, holding up to hot and cold weather conditions without losing elasticity or becoming unyielding or brittle over time.


The rust-resistant, yellow zinc chromate coating on the ratchet and hardware holds up to the varying weather conditions.


A safety strap is also built into each tie-down to provide peace of mind should something happen to the shock. This safety strap ensures that if the tie-downs are used improperly, overloaded, or unduly stretched, your UTV will remain secured.

Video Transcript for ShockStrap Tie-Down Straps Manufacturer Demo

Fred: Hi, this is Fred and Tris for the Shockstrap. Today we're going to do a pull off and show you exactly how we work compared to our competition. And again, Shockstrap itself, once you've stretched it and engaged it, that bottom hook doesn't come loose as you'll see shortly. And one of the things that we compare ourselves to our competition, a lot of folks like to see the size of the hooks. As you can see, most big box stores, this is what you get, and ours obviously is oversized. That comes into play when you've got a big quad, a side by side or even motorcycle handlebars.

The little hooks just don't typically go around them. So what we did on our machine, so that we literally could show you a direct comparison side by side, we had some little half inch pipe welded on here just to make it blatantly obvious how it works. We've got it tight, and the first thing we're going to do, and then we'll talk about a few other things, but Tris, let's just go ahead and act like we're hitting a washboard road, it's honestly a speed bump it could happen, and see what happens. You ready That . I know that looks too easy. Right there with you folks, but if you knew how tight this was.Tris: There we go.Fred: Literally, that is a guy thing where you're ...

we've got this tight on purpose. Actually, if you look at ours you're going to see a gap here, we hardly have ours stretched at all, but we really wanted to show you hitting the bumps and what happens. I don't want to belabor the point, most of you know, if you've had straps that they can come loose or come off. And again, most of you know, that if you have our straps, it's got a two year warranty, but we have customers out to 10 years on them now. And, once you engage them, that hook doesn't come loose.

As a matter of fact, Tris has one from 2006, tell them about it Tris.Tris: Had an individual come into our booth at a trade show and say, "I think you guys would be interested in this, bought this in 2006 and when I use it on my snow machines and on my quads, when I'm not using it I throw it in the back of the pickup, so in the winter it's buried in the snow, and in the summer the suns beating down on it", he says. So, here's an example of one that's seven years old and now it still works. We put it on the machine and it does everything that a brand new one will do.Fred: It is amazing, he gave us a pair of those, in fact we gave him two new ones to trade him. He didn't even want to trade those out at first. He literally was saying, "But they still work".

We had to say, "Buddy, you're not going to get five more years out of them, so please let us have them", real story. In fact, I had one recently a lady named Diane from California, her husbands a long-haul trucker, and she does travel with him and he's always trying to teach her how to tie knots and said, "Fred, I'm not a knot tier, I will never be a knot tier, I use your straps I just set them, they work, we go down the road". Recently she say, "I needed to buy more, in fact he's the one that asked me to buy more". I quizzed her a little further, I said, "But I thought he was a rope guy". She goes, "You know what, he wants three 19 footers for himself, so I think you just won him over". It's always nice to have those stories, and Tris was in Miami recently at another dealer and this is another funny story.Tris: I walked into this shop, it was a motorcycle and four-wheeler shop and I asked the owner of the shop if he had time to watch a video and I had to Shockstraps in my hand. And he saw what I had and he says, "I don't need to watch any video" and he says, "How many cases of those straps do you have with you, I've been looking for them and I can't find them".Fred: He has been a dealer years ago and we got him back very quickly. So, the other thing that I didn't mention as I was showing you the competition, if you ever get the chance when you're going to go buy straps, look at our packaging and look at theirs. If you flip theirs over on the back, it typically says right on there in black and white on the bullets, every 30 to 50 miles pull over and adjust the tension on the strap. That's true, there is no doubt, they do come loose, or quite frankly they may be off. You won't see that on ours folks. That bottom hook never comes off. Tris, let's just pull this again just to show people. You may see it flex, as you can see, obviously the Shockstrap working, but that bottom hook just stays tight doing exactly what it's meant to do. There's always tension on that bottom hook. So, we told you about real customers. We certainly told you we have a two year warranty, we haven't mention that it's 6 foot, 10 foot, and 19 foot, and black and red. It's all in the stretch, Shockstrap. Thank you.

I ordered the 14 foot ratchet straps for my UTV and my trailer, the straps were too long,so I had to send them back and get shorter ones and Geoffrey was a great help in getting me the 7 foot straps and sending me a shipping label to send back the long straps, which worked perfectly. Everything went great and I was able to get everything taken care of and shipping was very prompt 735847

I have had a chance to use the tie downs on two round trips to deer woods towing our Honda Pioneer 1000-5. They worked flawlessly, the straps I used before would come loose on occasion when crossing bridges with a sharp dip. I highly recommend these tie down straps. 445562

Picked up product at our gate this morning. Probably delivered last night, Oct 25, as promised. Showed up just in time. They are excellent quality and have good hook and sling options to tie down anything we are going to trailer. We will be using them next week to trailer our folks Polaris Razor from Az White Mountains to Tucson area. Will also be using to trailer our compact backhoe/front end loader to White Mountains and friends around area. Been using chains and ratchet boomers and before that other ratchet cloth tie downs. All have to be checked and sometimes reset at every stop. 446451
