BoatBuckle's second-generation transom tie-down straps bolt to the rear crossmembers of your trailer and simplify the securing and unloading of your boat. They are designed to keep constant tension on the strap and require minimal ratcheting to secure your load. Instead of always having to find and store tie-down straps that hook to the tie-down anchors on the back of your boat, BoatBuckle's straps are always right where you need them. Just pull up on the hook and strap, attach the hook to the transom, and then operate the ratchet several times. No more dealing with extra webbing or looking for the tie-down strap. And when unloading, simply push the release button on the ratchet, free the hook from the transom anchor and let the strap retract back down into the ratchet.


Installation

These straps come with the mounting hardware that you'll need to install them. It is recommended that you use anti-seize (LT37616 - sold separately) to ensure that the nuts are properly tightened down over the bolts. You can mount the ratchets with the included bolts directly to the trailer frame or crossmember. If you need to angle the ratchet strap or move it a little farther off the frame, a universal mounting kit (IMF14254 - sold separately) is available.


Note: Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a pair of 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. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Where have you been with all my boats over the years? I no longer have to worry about where to put my straps after we launch the boat. The retractable strap is quick-out of the way- don't have to scrounge getting the straps anymore. The bolts are heavier enough to hold my 26' cutty cabin. Best investment ever 583237

Boat buckles are so much faster, easier, secure than standard tie-downs. Installed them on my trailer in a few minutes, using the included hardware (bolt, washer and nylon-insert lock nut). Easy to install. Stainless steel tee bolts are pricey but given their high quality I can see why. Using them to slide into T-track accessory rail. These are metric M10 1.5, head is about 3/4 inches square, head depth is 5/32 inches. Very happy with my etrailer order. 797291

  • Transom Tie-Downs For 5,000-LB Boat
    All of the ratcheting tie-downs we offer, have the retracting feature. The highest rated transom tie-downs we offer are the BoatBuckle G2, part # IMF08893. The maximum break strength for these straps is 2,500-lbs each. The safe working load limit though is 833 pounds each.

  • Can the BoatBuckle Transom Ratchet Straps Handle Being Submerged in Water
    Yes, the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 are designed to work on boat trailer that get submerged under water so they would do just fine being repeatedly submerged. For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead. Since they are at the back of the trailer they wouldn't bear the brunt of debris or water on the highway so that wouldn't...

  • Stainless Steel Transom Strap Recommendation for Boat Trailer
    For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead. Part # IMF14256, uses a stainless steel body that resists rust and corrosion. The S-hooks are a vinyl-coated steel like the hooks on the system you referenced, for protection of the boat finish. These do come with the mounting hardware. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out.

  • 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.

    Thanks for the photo, and the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 are a great match for your 2,800 lb Stingray 201DC boat so long as you use other appropriate straps such as the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Bow Tie-Down Strap # IMF14220 and BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Gunwale Tie-Down Straps # IMF14221.

  • Differences Between Boatbuckle Cargo Buckles # IMF08893 and # IMF14256
    The difference is the metal that the two straps are made of. The more expensive # IMF14256 is made of stainless steel which offers superior corrosion resistance whereas the part # IMF08893 is made of non-stainless steel and that is why it costs less.

  • Best Location for Transom Tie Down on Boat Trailer with Hard to Access Transom Support Beam
    You could bolt the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 to the aluminum trailer frame provided you used aluminum mounting hardware instead of steel. The only other way, like you said, would be to add an extension piece to make it easier to reach the tie down. There isn't a specific extension for this purpose so you would need to fabricate one using materials from a home improvement store. If you add an extension you will want to be careful not to over-tighten...

    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...

  • Recommended Transom Strap for 1,500 lb Boat
    When determining the straps needed to secure a load of a certain weight, use the WLL figure. With the BoatBuckle straps # IMF08893, the two straps will safely secure a load weighing 1,666 lbs (833 lbs per strap).

    For your 1400-lb boat/motor I suggest you play it safe and use the 2-inch Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893. These have enough capacity plus a nice safety margin. With items like tie down straps you always want to use them within their WLL, or working load limit. This is their actual real-world capacity, as compared to their breaking strength which is 3 times the WLL. The idea is to choose a tie down that will never be used near its break strength.

  • Selecting Replacement Tie-Down Straps for Waverunner Trailer
    Wider tie-down straps are fine for your PWC application, even if they are replacing 1-inch-wide straps. The key is that you do not exceed the straps' WLL, their Working Load Limit. WLL is the most load you want to put on the straps; it is 1/3 of their break strength. Staying within the 833-lb WLL of the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 will ensure a long working lifespan.

  • Could the BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs # IMF08893 Secure an ATV in a Trailer
    You could use the BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs # IMF08893 to secure an ATV to a trailer. These have more than enough capacity at 833 lbs of capacity per strap. These permanently mount to your trailer with 1 bolt, mounting hardware is included. The buckles are sewn to the strap so there wouldn't be a way to reverse the direction the hooks face.

    The maximum break strength for each of the straps included with BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 is 2,500 pounds. So together that would be 5,000 pounds. The safe working load limit though is 833 pounds each. These are currently the highest rated transom tie downs that we carry. Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a pair of gunwale tie-downs. Adding in those you should be fine provided that the combined safe working load...

    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.
