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.

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.


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.

Install was easy. I have a small fishing boat and an EZ boat trailer. Installed with no problem. Used my boat and trailer all summer and most trips were about 1.5 hrs one way. No issues with buckles. So much easier than the strap I used for years. Quick, easy, locks tight and no messing around with the strap since I usually fish by myself. Super happy with my purchase.
Jon N - 01/03/2022


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 !!
J.D. - 01/20/2018


These are good; they helped me to obtain a good flat fit of the BoatBuckle strap across my transom at an angle.


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


Brackets were here in three days and worked perfect.


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


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


Fast and great service. Installed the mounting brackets on my Sea Ray
trailer and within 15 minutes was set to go.
Thanks etrailer for a great product.


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.

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!
Tim R - 10/17/2017


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.

Still doing the job they were built to do and doing it well:
Jim W - 07/30/2017


Love them! So much easer to lock down your boat for travel!


Very slow in the delivery


I'm in agreement with the people that said "after installing this 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!


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.

After a year, it is still working perfectly. It is reliable and super easy to use.
Chad W - 05/28/2015


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.

They were needed to align the transom eyes on my shorelandr trailer. Great system. Quick hook-ups less mosquitos. Thank you.
Stephanie Z - 06/25/2016


Worked great to install boat buckle tie downs on Bass Tracker trailer.

Works great. Was. Easy to install and ensures boat secure on trailer at all time.
Ronald - 03/02/2020


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.
Doug K - 12/12/2017


Universal mounting brackets installed with ease.


Worked great!!! I used these brackets for a seadoo boat trailer that had awkward angled transom mount points. The brackets enable me to use a mounted retractable transom tie down. I would recomend this product it was a cheap but high quality product shipping and communication was also excellent!!!


Mounting this on a vertical tie down tab on my trailer causes the Boat Buckle to swivel up and out of alignment. It can not be tightened enough to keep from twisting. Trying to make a universal bracket does not work in this case. A long leg on the 90 degree side would ride on the trailer channel and eliminate the twisting.


these brackets gave me the added length I needed to mount my boat buckle tie downs to my trailer. easy to install.


Gang if your tired pullin and adjusting straps for the transom tie downs this is the best Product I have ever seen or used 100% thumbs . Simply put are the best

P.S = went on a 1994 Stratos 201 xl pro with 200 Johnson Venom.


This product is much more substantial and rugged than I expected.

The customer service provided by Jennifer C at etrailer was without a doubt the best customer service I have received at any company, including my own!

Great communications, fast ground shipping, and follow up.
Do not hesitate to purchase from etrailer.


Glad I ordered them. I did need them. Even the bolts and nuts where the right thread match! Can't say that for the bolts and nuts supplied with Boat Buckles.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 angle...

  • 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.

    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.
