BoatBuckle Accessories and Parts - IMF14254

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.

Video Transcript for BoatBuckle Mounting Brackets Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at and installing the mounting brackets for BoatBuckle G2 retractable ratchet tie-down straps, part number IMF14254. You can see with our mounting bracket in place that it's going to bring it out in a way so that our straps can be nice and straight, with no binds, kinks, and not going to be rubbing up against anything. You can adjust this bracket in multiple different variations to give you different turns, twists, or put it in a different place. If you so choose, with this trailer, you can see that it also has a mounting point here, here, or you can mount it anywhere on your boat frame or chassis. All right. Here, you can see our strap already in place, with it being mounted straight to the frame of the trailer. The strap is going to be rubbing up against the side of the trailer and guides. You can see that it's going to be twisted down here at the bottom. So what we're going to do is put that hardware here on the end to where it's actually going to kick it out a little more so it's not going to be rubbing up and damaging the strap over time. Let's go ahead and remove the old BoatBuckle.

That way we can mount the hardware on and relocate that BoatBuckle for that safer ride. Go ahead and place the bracket on with whatever angle that you choose to have it at. Then we'll go ahead and mount the bracket on. Place the washer and the bolt on, and then thread on the nut from the bottom side. We'll go ahead and use our tools to tighten it down. Once you have it in place, we'll go ahead and take the old hardware, place it through, place the nut and washer in place, and thread it back on. Go ahead and readjust this so it's not in the way of the license plate.

Go ahead and press the release button on the BoatBuckle and pull it up into place. You can see that it's now going to be clear and you can adjust it to where it's going to be straight. That will do it for our review of the mounting brackets for the BoatBuckle G2 retractable tie-down straps, part number IMF14254.

Exactly what I needed. They are installed and working fine 403710

Works exactly as I hoped. i.e. keep the BoatBuckle straps from rubbing the gel coat on the boat. 296387


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!

A quality product that was easy to install and use Tried another brand it just didn’t hold up. Would recommend this product 483404



- IMF14254
by:

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! 379190

These brackets work great! Really make aligning the straps easy. 423970



- 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. 207331


Comments

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

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. 277386

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

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. 268031


Comments

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

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. 333921

Still fine, no problems. Working great !!

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. 592197

great brackets to use with the straps 326343

by:

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. 324281

Still working the same. Living with the flex.

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. 133019

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

Well engineered - Good quality - Good price - Fast, reasonable shipping. No bad surprises-Quick installation! I'm happy! I did run a tap through the 7/16" nut before installation because of a previous warning from other buyers about the threads being too tight. Worked perfect! I couldn't find 7/16" stainless steel lock washers @ Lowes. They don't have any 7/16" stainless items. 131029

These worked good on my shorelander boat trailer but they did cover up some of the the taillight. You be the judge. 130543

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • What is the Shape of the Mounting Hole For BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratchet Straps
  • I have included a picture of the back of what the Boat Buckle G2 straps, # IMF08893, look like. Mounting hardware (2 bolts, nuts, and washers) are included. You can also get optional mounting brackets, # IMF14254, if you need to move the straps off the frame or around obstacles.

  • 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.

  • Corrosion Resistance of BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Gunwale Tie-Down Straps IMF14221
  • 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...

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.
