BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps - IMF12811

Secure your boat's bow to your trailer with this heavy-duty, first-generation BoatBuckle tie-down strap. It is simple to hook up and gives you peace of mind during transport. 1,200 lbs Max load.


Features:

  • Heavy-duty tie-down straps firmly secure your boat's bow to your trailer
  • Seat-belt-quality polyester strap with zinc-coated steel hook
  • Zinc-coated steel buckle adjusts strap length


Specs:

  • Strap dimensions: 1" wide x 3' long
  • Maximum load strength (break strength): 1,200 lbs
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Quantity: 1 bow strap
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Loop the hook end of the strap around your trailer's frame and through the loop end. Once your boat is loaded, attach the hook to the tie-down anchor on the bow of your boat. Pull the other loop end of the strap to remove any slack and turn the buckle down to tighten the strap.


Note: A bow tie-down should always be used along with a winch strap and a set of transom or gunwale tie-downs. All straps and cables should be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). To determine the maximum load, or break strength, of the strap, simply multiply the WLL by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load.

Video Transcript for BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps - Trailer - IMF12811 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number IMF12811. This is the BoatBuckle KwikLok Bow Tie-Down Straps with Loop Ends. The heavy duty tie down straps are going to firmly secure your boat's bow to your trailer. It's made from a seat-belt quality polyester material and then on this end it's going to have the zinc coated steel hook. The buckle is made from a steel construction. It's going to have a zinc coated finish on it and that's what you're going to use to adjust the strap length. The strap dimensions, it's going to give us a width of 1 inch with an overall length of 3 feet.

It's going to have a maximum load or break strength rating of 1,200 pounds with a safe working load limit of 400 pounds. With this part number, you're going to get 1 strap. The way the system operates is you would loop the hook end of the strap around your trailer's frame and then you loop it through one of the loop ends. Once your boat is loaded, attach the hook to the tie-down anchor on the bow of your boat, pull the other loop into the strap tight, that's going to remove any slack and then all you have to do is turn the buckle to a down position. It's got a little cam feature in it, so then it's going to finish the securing and tightening process to get everything installed correctly and to tighten the strap all the way down. Now, keep in mind that a bow tie-down should always be used along with a winch-strap and a set of transom or gunwale tie-downs and then all straps and cables should be chosen according to their safe working load limit. That's going to do it for today's review of part number IMF12811.

This is the BoatBuckle KwikLok Bow Tie-Down Strap with a Loop Ends. .

This strap is great for holding down the bow of your boat while trailering. Sometimes the winch loosens up and the bow rises up and down. This strap prevents that and gives piece of mind. 280285

The strap is still working fine. Just finished a 700 mile trip towing my boat and the strap gives me piece of mind. Great product.

Does what it's supposed to do, but it is "almost" too long for my boat. There is barely enough room to "latch" it between the boat eyelet and the trailer structure. This requires a moderately tall wench stand. It is easy to install and use. 550370

Ask the Experts about this BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps
Do you have a question about this Tie Down Strap?


  • Recommended Fulton Boat Trailer Winch and Bow Tie-Down Strap for Safe Transport
  • The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle - 1,600 lbs # FW16000101 does not come with the separate safety strap. As you can see in the attached video, the secondary chain in that case is present for that reason, but the winch does not come with that strap or chain. I recommend the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Bow Tie-Down Strap with Loop End - 1" x 3' - 400 lbs # IMF12811 for that application. You may be interested in the BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Transom...

  • Recommended Transom Tie-Downs For 4,500 Lb Boat
  • I spoke with my contact at BoatBuckle about the weight capacity of their tie-down straps. They told me that the break strength is what they use when determining the best tie-downs for a boat to use. For your 4,500 lb boat I recommend the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs, part # IMF08893. These each have a break strength of 2,500 lbs so that gives you a total of 5,000 lbs. These are ratcheting straps that measure 2 inches wide by 43 inches long. These come with...

  • Availability of Loop Strap with Eye Hook
  • It sounds like you are looking for a strap like the BoatBuckle Bow Tie-Down Strap with Loop End # IMF18741 or # IMF12811. I have linked both above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • Transom Strap Recommendation for boat that weighs 2,410 lbs
  • Transom straps are not designed to bear the entire weight of your boat as they are designed to be used with a bow tie-down and a winch strap. So the part # IMF12811 that you referenced should work well for you as it has a 1,200 lb max capacity.
