It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.


ShockStrap Ratcheting Tie-Down

shockstrap double j strap with shock

Made in America to military-grade specifications, this one-of-a-kind ratchet strap from ShockStrap is great for nearly any application, from securing cargo on your vehicle for your next weekend getaway, to strapping down your favorite toys on your trailer. The 18' length of this strap is perfect for securing heavy loads to your trailer and tying down UTVs and utility tractors.


Unlike traditional straps, which don't stretch or contract, this tie-down is uniquely designed with built-in shock absorbers that allow the strap to maintain constant tension on your load as you travel. This is great for vehicles with suspension systems that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain.


Built-In Shocks

shockstrap rubber shock

The webbing of a standard strap can't stretch or contract to absorb impacts. As a result, standard tie-downs might become detached from their anchor points, or they may become slack around your gear as the load shifts. But this ratchet strap features 2 built-in urethane shocks that are designed to absorb impact and to allow give. This ensures that the tie-down stays taut and won't loosen over time. The built-in shocks help to keep the tie-down from coming loose or failing, which could result in lost or damaged gear.


In addition, the shock ensures a longer life for the strap webbing. If you use this to tie down a UTV, for example, the constant compressing and rebounding of the UTV's suspension during travel can wreak havoc on ordinary straps. The webbing is likely to experience more wear and tear as it rubs along your gear. But the ShockStrap's shock absorbs these jolts so that the webbing of the tie-down stays put instead of wearing over the edges of your equipment.


Easy-to-Use Ratchet

shockstrap large handle ratchet

This tie-down features a commercial-grade, field-replaceable ratchet that is easy to use. To release the ratchet, grab the oversized handle and pull on the release lever. The release lever is positioned on the outside of the ratchet to ensure safe and easy operation, even if you're wearing gloves.


How to Use the ShockStrap Ratchet Strap

shockstrap double j hooks

To use the ShockStrap ratcheting tie-down strap, first attach one of the sturdy double J-hooks to a desired anchor point. Then stretch the strap over your cargo and secure the other hook to a point on the opposite side of your truck or trailer. Each hook has a wide opening, making it hassle-free to maneuver and attach the hooks to your anchor points.


shockstrap soft loop with double j hooks

Soft loops, which are on both sides of the strap, can be used to tie down a piece of equipment that may otherwise be difficult to secure. So instead of using the hooks, which may scratch or scuff your toys and might be difficult to run through or around other cargo, you can easily cinch the tie-down around your gear. Just wrap a soft tie around the axle of your UTV and then secure the tie-down to your anchor points as usual.


Once the hooks are in place, tighten the webbing around the cargo and activate the shocks. To tighten the strap, crank the ratchet mechanism until the webbing is taut around your load. Be sure not to overtighten the strap. If your hand cannot fit between the shock and the safety strap, the strap is too tight.


To activate the shocks, tighten the strap a bit more, stretching the shocks until light is visible through the bolt holes in each shock. In warm climates, the shocks can stretch up to 2", while in subzero climates you may only get about 1/2" of give.


Finally, after tightening the webbing and stretching the shocks, make sure your cargo is completely secure and then tie off any extra slack.


Additional ShockStrap accessories can be added to help with load securement. Use the ShockStrap strap latches (297-2STY - sold separately) to secure the hooks on this tie-down strap to anchor points, ensuring that the hooks won't pop off while you are securing your load or while you are traveling.


Strong, Durable Construction

The sturdy, UV-resistant polyester webbing of this tie-down strap has a high tolerance for abrasion and water absorption.


The shocks are made of urethane, which can withstand elements such as sunlight, saltwater, moisture, oil, fungi, and most chemicals. These shocks can function in nearly any temperature, holding up to hot and cold weather conditions without losing elasticity or becoming unyielding or brittle over time.


The rust-resistant, yellow zinc chromate coating on the ratchet and hardware holds up to the varying weather conditions.


A safety strap is also built into this tie-down to provide peace of mind should something happen to the shocks. This safety strap ensures that if the tie-down is used improperly, overloaded, or unduly stretched, your cargo will remain secured.

Video Transcript for Review of ShockStrap Ratchet Straps - Trailer - Truck Bed - SS78MV

Hello everybody. This is Jeff etrailer.com. Today we'll be taking a look at the shock strap, 18 foot long ratchet tie-down strap with the shock absorbers. This is for a quantity of horns strap. How the shock absorbing ratcheting tie-down strap will let you secure the cargo in your truck, bed, or your trailer. I wanna zoom in and show you the unique feature on these straps, which is the built-in urethane shock absorber here.

This is designed to help absorb any impact to ensure constant tension on your strap, even as your load shifts. Now the shock absorbers on this they're made of a urethane based material, which will stand up to extreme temperatures. Also to salt water, moisture, oil, most chemicals. You can see they attached these shock absorbers to this strap. By using the sick dirty grade eight bolts, and then the nylock nuts to hold the shocks in place.

Also if you notice on the side here, they have this safety strap connected between the shock absorbers here and that's designed for two different purposes. First of all, they'll give you an extra strap. If for some reason the shock absorbers would break. So this is just a nice safety feature. Now for these, you would hardly have a problem with these shock absorbers breaking because the manufacturer says these would have to stretch 18 to 20 inches before it even think about breaking.

And when you tighten your straps times, you're not going to get even close to that. It's not going to stretch much at all. But they still use this as a safety strap. But the second reason is the safety strap also acts as a tension limiter. So you don't over ratchet the strap.

It'll give you an idea of how much to temp tighten down your strap. And what they tell you to do is you hook it up and tighten it as you're tightening it, that it stretches these absorbers and your strap will get closed. If you want to have it to where you can take your hand and slide your fingers in and then slide it out. So if you're able to slide your hand under between the shock absorber and the strap and still get it out, that will give you the correct tension on your strap. Now, this strap is made in the USA to military grade specifications, and it is DOT approved, which is department of transportation. Not because of this unique shock absorber feature. These straps are great for securing cargo. That has a suspension system that could compress a rebound when you travel rough terrain. So these would work great for tying down snowmobiles motorcycles, utility tractors, ATVs, UTVs, because those items have the suspension system. And when you're trailering those an there tightened down. If you hit a bump or rough terrain, that suspension could move up or down and loosen your ratchet straps, and they could actually even unhook them. But in this case with this strap is this SNI shock. Absorbers will keep tension on the strap. Even if that suspension is moving. Now the ratchet mechanism right here makes it very easy to tighten down each strap. Maintains tension on the strap. You can see it has a nice large handle that you can grip and a release lever in the middle of here ensures simple, safe operation. Even if you're wearing thick gloves you can still operate this handle. Now the minimum usable length of the strap. In other words, the shortest it would get is 32 inches. But just to show you the ratchet all you have to do is pull up and it's pulling in the strap, just like that. Zoom back out so you can see if it pulls it in. And what's nice is if you want to pull out, if you need to hook your strap up and you need to pull it out, something to get it to hook, what you can do is just pull up on that release lever, release the handle, move it all the way to the very end and it'll lock in place in the open position. And you can take your strap and just pull out as much as you need. Just keep pulling it as much as you need once you get it ready and attach, then just pull up that lever, put the handle back into the ratchet, an just start ratcheting to tighten it up. So the strap is very easy to operate. Very easy to hook up. On the ends, we'll zoom in again, and just show you on the ends, both ends. And it has these double J hooks with the very wide opening and allows for a nice hassle-free connection to your anchor points. And if you notice the strap that's attached to it, that has the loop in it, but those are used far. Those are integrated soft loops, and they can be used if you don't want these chain hooks attached to your cargo. So in other words, if you're carrying, like let's say a motorcycle and you want to attach these hooks to your, any metal part, like a handlebars or something, you don't want the metal to metal contact. What you can do is take this integrated loop, run this around your handlebars or whatever you're attaching to, hook it to the hook. And then just like that, that'll make your connection. Then you can tighten down your strap. So you don't have to use this, but it is there just in case you want to protect the whatever you're tightening down. Now all the steel parts on the strap or a corrosion resistant yellow zinc coating a polyester webbing is a UV resistant, two inch wide webbing or withstand abrasions and water absorption. Again, the dimensions on this and the zoom back out, is going to be two inches wide on the strap, 18 feet in length. Now we do also, they offer a nine foot length, which we sell separately. It's part number SS68MV, and they even offer a longer 27 foot lane strap. It's part number SS88MV. Probably do have a strap or a tag on here. And if you look at that, it'll show you, it has the maximum load or break strength of the strap, which are missing to be 10,000 pounds. And they list the safe working load limit is what you need to go by. Safe working load limit is always one third of the break string. So this one will be 3,333 pounds. I had one note just to mention on tie-down straps, they must be chosen according to that safe working load limit. So the weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined working load limit of the straps being used. So just to give you an example, if you're using straps that have a 500 working load limit to tie down a load weighing a thousand pounds, then you're going to need at least two of those straps to safely secure that load. And it is always recommended that you use straps in pairs. But that should do it for the review on the shock strap, 18 foot long ratchet tie-down strap with shock absorbers for a quantity of one..

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


I was looking for tie down straps to haul my ATV as well as my garden tractor. The standard straps were okay but did seem to loosen up after traveling for awhile. So I took a chance on these ones based on the details one etrailer as well as reviews. I have not been disappointed. They worked as described and do not loosen in transit. I would definitely purchase again.


Comments
Still working very well and not showing any signs of wear. Sure is nice to have straps that do not loosen in travel.

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


I use these to tie down Honda Rancher ATVs, I took out the rubber shock as it's useless(too stiff) for the weight of the ATV and provides no shock motion. The strap itself is unbeatable. Heavy duty, with the loop and latching hook that make this strap a super safe option. The strap and hook WILL NOT come off going down a rough road, due to the safety mechanisms. Well worth the price if you want long lasting AND safety as peace of mind.

Great product when they work as designed. Unfortunately one of the ratchet handle assembly units would not operate properly. I was lucky to have one the right size that I could adapt to fit the strap, now it works perfectly. With a higher quality ratchet these straps are awesome

Awesome straps. We'll worth the cost. The only product to safely and securely tie down SxS or ATV toa trailer without worrying about plain ratchet straps coming loose while transporting.




by:

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


I love these straps! They don't come loose and hold the SXS really well. Much better than standard straps! Standard straps would come loose on my SXS, these do not. I like the length, so I'm not tying off long ends. The loops give great flexibility too. Great straps, highly recommended and would buy again. My only question/concern is how long the "rubber" shock part will last. Don't know if over time it will crack or sun will harm, etc. But other than that they are great.


Comments
Still the best tie downs Ive found. Would buy again!

I brought this product as my 29' boat needed very strong bow straps to address movement while trailering. Just completed a 3,000 mile tow and the difference was amazing!! No jerking motion and the shock absorbers did their job on I95 bumps.

I highly recommend this product.

These shock straps are great for hauling our ATV. We had been using just regular ratchet straps and had to stop several times to tighten them back up, but with these shock straps, they stay tight the whole trip! They are truly wonderful!

They are the most wonderful straps ever! My ATV doesnt move an inch on my trailer. These are the best straps ever!

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


The product performed as it was advertised. The straps were well constructed and it was obvious a great deal of thought went into the design. I shoot sporting clay targets and haul a John Deere Gator 825 XUV to events, as a means of transportation around the course. Roads traveling to and from events, often, are gravel or dirt. This can and does create rough road surfaces to pull trailers and XUVs on. I used the Shock Straps this past week and watched to Gator as I drove on some rough terrain. The Gator did not move or sway during the trip. When I got to my destination, the straps were as tight as when I left for the trip. There was absolutely no play in the straps. Previously, I was always adjusting the straps and the XUV would rock and bounce on rough terrain. No any more.

These are great!!! Just got back from a 1200 mile Round trip to Tennessee. Used these to strap down 2 SXS. These straps didn’t loosen on bit.

Been on several long trips using these to secure my Honda Pioneer and never has once loosen. Theyre pricey but would trust these straps to secure any load.

I trailer my golding trike from MN to AZ or TX every winter.
Other tie downs tended to loosen up during the trip allowing my bike to move around.
These shock straps ABSOLUTELY stay tight and hold during the 1200 or 1500 mile trips!
TOTALLY recommend to all!!

Looks like an excellent product from all the reviews and highly recommended by Dirt Trax TV. Delivery was good although it was one day late but not e-trailers fault. The tracking was excellent. I could see where my package was at any moment. Will post more once I actually use the product.

Have been using them for awhile now and absolutely love them. Easy to use, strong. Definitely recommend to anyone needing a good tie down.

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


Like everyone else I would go through the efforts of strapping down a utv only to see my ratchet straps hanging off the trailer as I look at my review mirror 10 minutes into my trip. Never again! Used these on a 200 mile round trip down all kinds of roads (freeway, country roads, dirt roads, etc) and never had to adjust or tighten them. A must have.

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


These tie downs have been excellent. Use them to tie down our ATV, and our zero turning radius mower without any issues whatsoever. Used the tie downs frequently over the summer/fall months with confidence over very hilly terrain. Keep them clean or clean up if you get them dirty, then store where not exposed to the elements and should last for years.


Comments
Excellent, very durable and only minor wear showing after too many uses to remember.

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


Although these straps are on the more expensive side of things, I’m glad I made the investment. The shock absorbers on each of the straps works great and keeps my RZR from bouncing, as well as not having to retighten them. I highly recommend these!
