  • 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

  • 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.

Works very good for my application and stern design. I have added a short length of chain to my trailer to facilitate using these straps. Easy on easy off and secure.

This strap works perfectly to secure the transom of our sailboat to the trailer. The hooks stay in place so that one person can attach the strap without issue. As always eTrailer is quick to deliver and has a good assortment of products.


Comments
After a year, the strap has continued to hold up well. It holds our boat in place without releasing any pressure. It was a great purchase.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


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.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


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.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


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.


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


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.


Comments
Still working great.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


I always hesitate to go all Stars on anything but this one is close. Excellent product in terms of design and it works great. Have used a lot of these over the years and I'd say these are the best I've found. One thing worth noting, I am a fishing guide and this item sees daily use in all types of conditions. Only improvement I could see is eliminating the rubber coated hooks and going straight galvanized. The rubber looks great and lasted on my almost exactly a year before it were off which is pretty impressive. A bit of rust on them, but of course traveling here in our mtns in the winter any metal stuff takes a beating from road salt even if if keep everything clean. Great product though and will likely continue to buy them


Comments
Jeff, Thank you for your review. I appreciate your information about the rubber coating on the hooks, they are rubber coated so they do not scratch your boat or trailer. We do have stainless steel hooks available that are also 2x10. Part # IMF12069 handles 333 lbs compared to the 400 lb straps you already have. I hope this helps.

I've used these boat straps before and liked them. These straps are easy to put on and easy to take off. Just pull it tight and snap the snap and you're done. Ken

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


This Boat Buckle Strap Gunwale Tie-Down I bought from etrailer.com is one of the BEST Tie down Straps you could ever get. I was surprised to see when I opened up my delivery and saw the strap, it was they exact strap that when I bought my boat came with. and I give 8 years of worry free for this strap. etrailer has GREAT product that have nice quality stuff.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


This tie down system is well made and works well with the optional pads. The clips on each hook ensure that they do not unhook from the trailer. That was a feature that I had on my previous tie down system and an option that I wasn't going to do without this time around. The tie down secures the boat easily and the extra strapping is easily and conveniently stored within a Velcro strap. A nice touch. I just installed the tie down and haven't had a chance to use it for any length of time, but it am expecting it to last for quite some time as it is quite well made.


Comments
The tie down continues to work just as well as day one! I continue to recommend this tie down.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


This strap has a long fix end so that the buckle ends up between the gunwales of the boat. Some competing straps have a short end so the buckle ends up along the side of the boat. The strap is smooth like a seat belt, and the buckle works easily with a cam action to tighten the belt as the buckle is closed. This 10 foot strap was perfect for my boat and trailer where the hook to hook distance is about 106 inches. The keepers on the hooks work well but can be easily removed if you don't want to use them.

Review from a similar Pro Series Kwik-Lok Gunwale in Boat Tie Downs


The gunwale strap that holds my Gheenoe on the trailer is very old, so I wanted to buy a new one. The distance from one tie-down over the boat to the other is only 7 ft. I ordered the shortest strap ( 10 ft ) & incorrectly assumed that when the strap was tightened, it would fit. Unfortunately, that is not the case, & the buckle hangs down past the opposite tie-down when fully tightened. The new strap looks very nice, but it just doesn't work for me.
