These Pro Series ratchet tie-downs are a simple, effective way to secure your boat's stern to your trailer. Sturdy straps ratchet to tighten, and padded buckles and vinyl-coated hooks protect the boat's paint finish. 1,200 lbs Max load.


  • Heavy-duty tie-down straps firmly secure your boat's transom (stern) to your trailer
  • Seat-belt-quality polyester strap ratchets to tighten
  • Protective pads under the ratchets and vinyl-coated steel top S-hooks protect your boat's paint finish
  • Zinc-coated steel bottom hooks attach to trailer and resist corrosion


  • Strap dimensions: 1" wide x 3' long
  • Maximum load strength (break strength): 1,200 lbs
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Quantity: 2 transom straps
  • 1-Year limited warranty

Load your boat onto your trailer. Connect the bottom, zinc-coated steel S-hooks of the Pro Series straps to the back end of your trailer's frame. Connect the vinyl-coated top S-hooks to the loops on the stern of the boat. Ratchet to tighten the strap. A built-in pad underneath the ratchet helps to prevent it from scratching the boat.

Note: Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a set 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.

Very nice transom Rachet straps. Like the rubber on the back to help protect the boat. Will be using them on a jet boat, the length was the perfect size.


just what I needed


Great strap, everything it was said to be! Ordered product, shipped out same day, received in two days to my surprise! Shipping information provided immediately, as well as tracking, and advising it had been delivered. Very pleased!


I use these to strap down a mobility scooter. Works perfectly!! Easy on and off and very secure. Love them!


Very good experience ordering with etrailer, tracking was up to date and the straps were not off brands cheapos

One of them broke

Perfect purchase. Shipped extremely fast.

a pleasure dealing with etrailer.



after having the flip and lock kind for 10 years ( that by the way always managed to come loose on the way to the lake) I put these on my boat and trailer when I picked it up from having a new cover made for it and brought it home and when I got home they were just as tight as when I put them more worrying about them coming loose or falling in the road....great product

They are working great and still look brand new and have not had any time when they came loose

So far so good. Struggled to find straps with the correct strength that weren't either too long or too short. wasn't sure about the ratchets since i've only ever used the tension level type.

after lots of searching i found these, right length, right strength. took a chance. i actually REALLY like the ratchets. the work quite well and make the connection more snug and maybe even (in my mind at least) more trustworthy.

i've only moved the boat with them attached twice (to the lake and back) since buying, but I was satisfied and confident.

great! been using them for a year and havent looked back. I would recommend these straps to anyone.

One year later and my ratcheting boat straps are still like new and have never once loosened up, even after fishing hard most of last year, great product!

Another year later and these things are still holding strong, I wish more products were made like this!
Rick F - 05/16/2018


Awesome product!!! The flip over hinge straps that came with my boat always loosened up while trailoring. These are rock solid and great quality!!

They are still as perfect as the day I bought them!

eTrailer is great to deal with. Now onto the BoatBuckle Pro Series ratchet tie downs. This is my second pair. IN each pair the tie down ratchet systems flexes/bends and the ratchet doesn't engage/lock correctly. I will be looking for something better in the near future


Shipping was fast and arrived before estimated delivery date. The straps are easy to use and they work perfect for my pontoon/bunk trailer setup for securing the rear down tight. The rubber padded ratchets lay flat on the back of the pontoons with no worrys about scratching up the aluminum. The rubber pads are a little softer then expected so I would avoid excessive tightening of the ratchet for longer life of the pads. You can still make it plenty tight but with ratchets its so easy to do one or two more unnessasary clicks tighter.


Ordered these to replace stock pull and latch/clip style tie downs. I like the ratcheting style better. I can ratchet them tighter and they release easily.


I brought the straps to tie down my boat which they did a good job of but the metal is very cheap and after serval uses they completely buckled. For what i paid for them i have no complaints and the manufactures replaced them without questions. If you want for occasional use i am sure they would be fine.


I have a 16’ Santee skiff. Was looking for straps that were not too big and that would also protect the hull from damage. These straps are perfect. etrailers shipping is really fast. Ordered several trailering products from them and continue to be impressed.


These are an excellant replacement for the tie downs straps that were on the trailer when I purchased it.


I received my tie downs today and they work great! I am extremely happy with the product and recommend them to everyone with a boat or jet ski. Ordering them was very easy and delivery was quick.

Thanks for all your help!


The product is very good quality and fitted my jetski very well, securing it nicely to the trailer. I would definitely recommend it.


I used these for my jet ski trailer. They work great and I like that they have a protective piece under the ratchet to eliminate scratching.


Good Product, Just As Described. Good Replacement For Original Hinge Style Transom Straps. Quick Shipping.


Thanks for the follow up. This is the first time I used the straps. I love the yellow boat protectors and the total quality of the product.


Awesome straps. I have ordered these a few times and they last a long time, even atound saltwater. Would reccomend these to any boat owner.


Great product , makes trailering jon boat much steadier. Shipping was crazy fast, order left warehouse on same day I ordered. Great product, great company


I was very pleased with my transom straps. Good quality and good value. Thanks


Works great, love the run we protectors to keep from scratching the transom.
