BoatBuckle Accessories and Parts - IMF14254

  • Tie Down Straps
  • Ratchet Straps
  • Boat Tie Downs
  • Mounting Brackets
  • BoatBuckle

Need to mount your BoatBuckle G2 ratchets off of your trailer's frame or position the ratchets around other items on the frame? These angled, universal mounting brackets are for you. Includes 2 brackets and mounting hardware.


Features:

  • Angled brackets help you mount BoatBuckle G2 tie-downs
  • Provides a 45-degree angle to make ratchets easier to access and use
    • Helps angle ratchets around objects on the trailer that could cause interference
  • Bolts to your trailer's mounting tabs and onto BoatBuckle retractor - mounting hardware included


Specs:

  • Maximum load (break strength): 5,000 lbs each
  • Mounting hardware dimensions: 3/8" diameter x 1-3/4" long
  • Mounting holes measure 1/2" diameter
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 1,666 lbs
  • Quantity: 2 mounting brackets
  • 1-Year limited warranty



Dimensions of TieDown

These angled brackets help you to position your BoatBuckle G2 tie-downs around other items on your trailer and position the tie-downs off of your trailer's frame, making the ratchets easier to access and use.


Note: Tie-downs should always be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). The item being tied down must not exceed the combined WLL of the straps being used. For example, if you are using tie-downs with a WLL of 1,500 pounds each to tie down a load weighing 3,000 pounds, then you need at least 2 tie-downs to safely secure the load. To determine the maximum load, or break strength, of the tie-down, simply multiply the WLL by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load.

Install was super easy! Construction of bracket looks very sturdy! Finish on bracket is well done too. Attached my retractable boat buckle with ease. Took 20 minutes for both sides. Bolts that came with bracket are great too. I added one more washer to make even more sturdy. Can't take boat out yet but will be interested to see how it holds up going down the road.

Fit perfect with my Shorelander trailer and ratchet tie down strap. It also kept the strap straight when tied down.

by:

I purchased the Boat Buckle transom tie-downs for my fishing boat and I did not like the angle that they were going to be at, the strap was going to rub against the bottom edge of my boat, so I drove 120 miles to get some tubing that was the exact size to weld on to my trailer to extend it, then I decided to try these brackets. I put them on last night and I could not be happier with the way that they worked out. Saved me a lot of work extending my trailer tubing.

Still fine, no problems. Working great !!

Received the universal mounting kit to be used in conjunction with ratcht type tie-downs on a 2015 Tracker Targa V-18 Combo trailer. The provided instructions were clear, concise, and easy to follow. The product work as advertised and allowed the mounting of the tie-downs with no interference with the tail lights. Highly recommended.


Comments
After a year the product still delivers as advertised. Still rated 5 stars and highly recommended.

These brackets work great! Really make aligning the straps easy.

by:

The boatbuckles are absolutely fantastic. They were easy to install with two wrenches. Work easily and hold down nicely. The mounting brackets allowed me to position the boatbuckles in the exact location for easy hand access to the buckle. My only concerns are the metal parts in the buckles. Will they rust over time? The only maintenance suggested is water but nothing about oil. Salt water may be a problem but don't know. Time will tell. For now I REALLY like them.


Comments
Still doing the job they were built to do and doing it well:

These worked good on my shorelander boat trailer but they did cover up some of the the taillight. You be the judge.

Très bon prix et frais de livraison raisonnable je recommande A+++



- IMF14254
by:

These were needed for my Boat Buckle install. They allowed for tail light clearance and a better pull down angle on the boats transom. These were used on a Shorelander boat trailer. I think they could be heavier duty since they do hold the boat to the trailer.


Comments
They were needed to align the transom eyes on my shorelandr trailer. Great system. Quick hook-ups less mosquitos. Thank you.

Not much to say. The metal is thick, they don't bend during use. The multiple holes offer several mounting options. These fit the ratchet straps I also purchased. I'm glad I purchased these rather than making my own because it made installation faster.

Order was on time, product is outstanding, couldn't ask for a better product or company to order from. Thanks guys!!!!

Product came from Etrailer in a timely manner. I was able to easily install the brackets on my boat trailer and then install the retractable Boat Buckles. My only complaint was one of the nuts was Extremely difficult to screw on to the bolt. Initially I thought the nut was made this way so it would fit tight but it was most likely a defective nut from the manufacturer. I would definitely order further products from Etrailer.

Works exactly as I hoped. i.e. keep the BoatBuckle straps from rubbing the gel coat on the boat.


Comments
Very satisfied with these parts on my RangerTrail trailer. The BoatBuckles are OEM on RangerTrail trailers, so I new they would be great. What I didnt know, was how great the service would be from etrailer.com.Thanks!

Bracket is a bit flimsy and flexes when under tension. Not a big problem, but not the same result when mounting to the rigid trailer. A simple gusset would solve this issue.

Still working the same. Living with the flex.

I'm in agreement with the people that said "after installing this product...you can't winch your transom down tight without this slipping out of place!" I addressed it by putting a "tooth ring" style lock washer in between this product and the trailer! That kept it from slipping, but ya still really have to tighten it a lot!



- IMF14254
by:

The product was just as advertised. Worked perfectly on my Bass Tracker trailer. The greatest thing about dealing with eTrailer was that their price was less than half of some of the big box stores like BassPro, Cabellas, and Amazon. Fast shipping and an outright good online shopping experience.


Comments
After a year, it is still working perfectly. It is reliable and super easy to use.

  • What Grade Bolts Comes with Boat Buckle Mounting Bracket part # IMF14254
    The Boat Buckle Mounting Bracket part # IMF14254 comes with Grade 5 hardware. You certainly could go to Grade 8 if you wanted to but as long as you are using these brackets like they were intended it would not be needed. Fun fact...to determine the Grade of a bolt all you have to do is count the lines on top of the bolt head and then add 2.

  • Transom Tie Down Straps for 2020 Bass Tracker Superguide SC V16
    I have a solution for you, however, I actually measured one of these for you and I found that at its shortest, the BoatBuckle Heavy Duty Ratchet Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF14206 would be around 18 inches long, which is a bit too long for what you need. The best solution for you and my recommendation is to go with the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893. Instead of using extra webbing with a hook, the G2 straps use a bolt to secure the ratchet body...

  • Tie-Down Straps for 900 lb Boat Trailer
    In order to choose tie-down straps, you are going to need tie-downs with a break strength that exceeds the weight of the lightest object, so you will want to use straps with a break strength that exceed the weight of your trailer. So I recommend the following straps: - BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Bow Tie-Down Strap # IMF14220 This strap has a 2,500 lb break strength, and you'll use it in combination with gunwale and transom straps. - BoatBuckle Heavy Duty Ratchet Transom...

  • Recommended BoatBuckle Ratcheting Straps to Hold a 2012 Tracker Pro Team 175 TXW
    The BoatBuckle Ratcheting Straps that I recommend for your application is the G2 Retractable Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893. Their Safe Working Load Limit is 833 lbs for each one, which will be more than enough to secure your 2012 Tracker Pro Team 175 TXW since the tie downs are use to keep your stationary boat from moving; not to stop a moving load. Their Maximum Load Strength (or Break Strength) is 2,500 lbs each. From the picture that you sent (which is always appreciated), it looks...

  • Best Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps for a Boat Trailer
    In order to secure your 16' fishing boat to the trailer, I recommend using the BoatBuckle G2 Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps part # IMF14221. These straps have a vinyl-coated hook that is designed to attach atop the gunwale of your boat. They have a ratcheting mechanism which will cut down time and slack. They are 38" long and have a 833 lb safe load limit. If you already have anchor points on the boat then you can use the BoatBuckle G2 Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps part # IMF08893...

  • Installation of BoatBuckle G2 Ratcheting Tie-Downs on Shoreland'r Trailer for Lund Angler SS
    You can still install the tie-downs, but since the installation hardware used for the BoatBuckle G2 Tie-Downs # IMF14220 is 3/8 inch in diameter, the 1 inch transom strap holes on your trailer will be too large to install these tie-downs. The best solution to installing the # IMF14220 is to drill a new hole to match the size of the BoatBuckle installation hardware. I have attached the installation instructions for the BoatBuckle G2 tie-downs for you. The # IMF14220 has a safe working...

    The steel body of the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Gunwale Tie-Down Straps # IMF14221 has an anti-corrosive finish to help protect it from the corrosive effects of a salt water environment. It does not carry a specific salt spray rating, however. Like any boat or other marine equipment placed in salt water it should be fully rinsed with fresh water after each use. You can use the included bolt to mount the ratchet directly to the trailer frame or cross member. If you need to...

  • How To Choose the Correct BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Downs
    In order to secure your 1994 Regal Ventrua 6.8 with the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps you will need to use one tie down at the bow and two tie downs at the transom. For this you will need both part # IMF14220 and part # IMF08893. This will give you a break strength rating of 7,500 lbs (2,500 lbs per tie down) therefore will be sufficient. We also have the Mounting Brackets part # IMF14254 if the tie down points on the trailer are not where you need them to be....
