This gunwale strap offers strength, security and convenience. It secures one of your boat's gunwales to your trailer, stores extra strap length during transportation, and makes the trailer more visible at night. 1,200 lbs Max load.

  • SUR-Grip rubber-coated Kwik-Lok buckle is easy to grip and control with one hand
  • Seat-belt-quality polyester webbing
  • Hi-Vis protective PVC pad under the buckle and vinyl-coated steel S-hooks protect your boat's paint finish
    • Built-in keepers prevents S-hooks from disconnecting

  • Built-in closure stores extra strap


Specs:

  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Quantity: 1 gunwale strap
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Load your boat onto your trailer, open the buckle, connect the bottom S-hook of the Pro Series strap to the side of your trailer's frame, then connect the top S-hook to an anchor point on the gunwale of the boat. Pull the end of the strap through its buckle and turn the buckle down to tighten the strap. Secure the opposite gunwale with another strap (sold separately).


Note: Gunwale tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a set of transom (stern) or bow 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.

This strap worked awesome! It was purchased to prepare for a Canada trip. I thought I could use the old one I was using as a second strap, but that one loosened up on the dirt road. Glad I bought this one. It stayed tight as can be. Easy to lock, and having the Velcro straps helped keep the excess in place was a bonus. And the clips on the hooks helped keeping the strap in place to get it easily secured. As a example of the logging road used, I had to drive into town for a spark plug. A 2 hour round trip drive into the nearest town without the trailer, and I could only max out at 45 mph from all of the pot holes. From the picture, my boat is 63 inches wide.

This has a very positive lock, capable of putting significant pressure on the strap on the "close/lock" stroke. Very impressive. My old strap would eventually loosen up on rough roads, so I'm hoping this one will hold steady. It certainly appears that it will, but I'll have to wait to test it over the road. Also love the velcro strap to hold the "leftover" strap material after tightening; used to be, I'd tuck it down under the live well cover-- now I don't have to. Was very glad to be able to modify my old Fulton T600 winch to accommodate the strap. This will definitely be a better system, and the new rubber Y-stop is a great help, too. The old one was hard as a brick.

This is a very high quality product. If you are looking for a tough secure strap to go over the top of your jon boat gunnels, this is a great choice. I could not find anything like this from my local marine dealers, only transom tie downs. Service from etrailer is well above the norm and I received personal emails keeping me informed on the status of my order.

Still awesome after a year of regular use. High quality, durable product.

Very satisfied with my BoatBuckle tie down strap. Finally a tie-down strap that is easy to use and fastens securely. After removing the strap from the plastic holder that it was shipped in, I had a little trouble threading the strap back through the buckle, but I found a video on Etrailer that helped alot. Thanks, great product.

I needed a new tie-down for my 14ft.boat. I bought one at a big-box, national chain. It was the type that came in two pieces and you had to loop them together. I tried for 1 hour, with no success. I even went to the boat dealer where I bought my boat. They had the same type that I had already bought! I even asked one of the guys who works there, whom I have known for many years, and he said that he even had trouble using that type( and he sells them!) So, I searched on-line, and found your company. This tie-down is GREAT! and well worth the price. My old one was starting to sag in the middle and I was becoming nervous when towing my boat. For someone like me, who has fumble fingers, I found the instructional video to be very useful. I just put it on today. What a difference! I now feel secure when towing my boat. THANKS.

As all past experiences with e-trailer, the service was great, and the boat tie downs are everything I expected, at a fair price. There is not much else than anyone could ask from a company.

Ask the Experts about this BoatBuckle Boat Tie Downs

  • Recommended Tie-Down Strap For 16-Ft Clackacraft Forward Weight Drift Boat
    From my research I found that the width of a 16-ft Clackacraft weight forward drift boat is 83-inches wide and the height of the sides is 23-inches. To make sure you have enough strap to reach the trailer frame on each side of the boat I recommend a strap like part # IMF17637. This is a 2-inch x 20-ft strap and it has a 400-lb capacity. The strap has vinyl-coated S-hooks and a Kwik-Lok buckle to hold the strap secure. If you want to use a shorter strap I recommend part # IMF17636....

  • Length of 2 individual Straps that Make Up BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale Tie-Down Strap
    I went out to our warehouse and pulled BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale Tie-Down Strap # IMF17635 to measure the lengths of the 2 ends for you. The end that has the buckle measures 81 inches from the end of the hook to where the strap attaches to the buckle. The other end measures 79 inches from the end of the hook to the end of the strap. Essentially the 2 parts are just about equal in length.

  • Recommended Gunwale Tie-Down for 1998 Northwoods 1467 DLX
    For your 1998 Northwoods 1467 DLX, I recommend the BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale Tie-Down Strap - 2" x 13' # IMF17635. The length of the strap only needs to be long enough to secure to the trailer frame on each side and reach across the boat for this style of strap. The trailer winch will help secure the bow of the boat so the gunwale strap will secure the stern of the boat. I've attached a couple videos to assist. Let me know if you have further questions.
