Video Transcript for Erickson Chrome Protector Sleeve Review

Today we'll be taking a look at and reviewing the Erickson Chrome Protector Sleeve, for tie-down straps, part number EM06305, also available in a two-pack, part number EM06305-2. Here we have our Erickson 12-inch chrome protector in place. It's going to fit up to one and two inch webbed straps. It's going to be made of 100% polyester, simulated ship skin. It's going to wrap around your bar, holding it secure, and protecting it against getting any kind of scuff, especially if you have chrome handle bars on your motorcycle. It's super easy to put in place, and we can show you how to do that. Take the buckle of your strap, stick it into one end, and then we'll just let the weight do the work on pulling the strap through. Just guide it and drop the strap down until it falls out of the other side.

When you first get them, they're' going to be a little bit stiff. So you might need to work with them a little bit. Go ahead and pull it through, wrap the strap around your bar, bringing it through just like so, folded in half around your bar. Now, with it tightened down, you can see that's going to be real sturdy and it's going to hold your bike in place, protecting it from getting any kind of scuffs or scratches. Now we're ready to hit the road and see how well it works against any kind of twisting or turning. That will do it for our review of the Erickson Chrome Protector Sleeve for tie-down straps, part number EM06305..

I used these where my transom straps touched my boat when on trailer. They worked well but after a year they have dried up and falling apart. They are no longer useful and ready for the garbage. I will not order again.


Just what I needed. Worked out great. I used them over straps to protect the custom wheels on my car when on my tow dolly. I had to use straps thru the wheel in lieu of chains to the chassis.

Shipping was quick as well.



Keeps from chipping the paint when I have to use sway straps. Came ahead of schedule. Product works good.


I love these protectors come in real handy for many things


Works well protecting the mahogany gunnels on my retored wooden boat.

I donated my boat to a museum in N.H. I drove the boat 1400 miles and the sleeves protected the mahogany gunnels. There wasn’t any marring of the finish.

  • Will Mounting Straps on Softride Tailgate Bike Carrier, Part # SR26457, Wear Paint Off Tailgate?
    In actual use the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier, part # SR26457, will be held in place both by the four supplied nylon straps and also the weight of the loaded bikes. It is not necessary to make the straps excessively tight to the point that they will wear the paint on the bottom edge of the tailgate. They just need to be snugged down with moderate tension to hold the pad in place. I have included a video for this item showing how it installs on a tailgate. A nice feature of...

  • Do Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, Part # EM34417, Automatically Retract
    The Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, part # EM34417, use high strength polyester straps that measure 1 inch wide by 9 feet long. The extra strap length will retract onto the storage hub when the red button (located under the ratcheting handle) is pressed. The auto-retract function is spring operated. Depending on the load you are securing you may want to consider the Erickson Chrome-Protector Sleeves, part # EM06305-2. These easily slip over the straps and can be positioned...

  • Protective Sleeve Recommendation for a Erickson Tie Down
    The only way to get the sleeves of the part # 88509 is to order them. They aren't available as a separate part. We do have a similar sleeve though, part # EM06305. This is used to protect painted surfaces, but it also protects the strap.

  • What Capacity of Strap Should be Used to Secure a Motorcycle That Weighs 850 lbs
    The load capacity that you will want to take into consideration when choosing a strap is the safe working load limit of the strap. The Erickson Ratcheting Motorcycle Tie-Down Straps, # EM05710, has a working load limit of 400 lbs each. For your situation I would recommend the Erickson Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # EM31352. This includes four straps that have a safe working load limit of 500 lbs each. Keep in mind that if you have to wrap the strap around an edge of the trailer, then the...

  • Strap Protector Recommendation to Protect Vehicle from Rubbing when Transporting Kayaks
    Yes! To protect your vehicle from rubbing from your tie-down straps, I recommend using the Erickson Chrome-Protector Sleeves for Tie-Down Straps - 12" Long # EM06305-2. These are the longest protectors we have for kayak straps. In order to get the length of protection you need, you need to order 2 sets. I went ahead and attached a demo video for you to check out.

  • Comparing Thule Cargo Control Options Surf Strap # TH531 and Load Straps with Cam Buckles # TH521
    The Thule Express Surf Strap, part # TH531, is specialized for use in securing a surf board on Thule or other roof rack crossbars and works best when used in conjunction with one of their crossbar pads, such as part # TH802 intended for round and square bars. The pads help stabilize and protect your surf board or other cargo from scratches. The Thule 9-foot Load Straps, part # TH521, feature polypropylene straps and padded cam-action buckles but require you to thread the strap through...

  • Recommended Roof Kayak Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    Both the Thule Hull-A-Port Side-Loading Single Kayak Carrier # TH834 and The Stacker # TH830 multi-kayak carrier will fit on the factory bars on the 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon, and both carriers will work with Malone's T-Stlye Quick Loops # MPG308. If you prefer a lower-cost option than two sets of the Quick Loops we offer a set of protective sleeves # EM06305-2 that slip over the tie downs included with the carriers to provide protection for your paint. These are made of polyester faux...

  • E-Track Recommendations For 7 By 14 Enclosed Trailer To Carry Classic Motorcycles
    With cargo like your two classic Harleys you will want to make sure they are really well secured to prevent any damage. I recommend securing the E-Tracks to something more stable than just wood. If you are attaching the tracks to the floor I recommend you make sure they are secured either to the metal structure of the trailer or use metal plates like the E-Track Backing Plate, part # e96RR, to make it as secure as possible. If the interior floor and walls are 7 ft long I recommend 5...
