It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.


ShockStrap Ratcheting Tie-Downs

shockstrap s-hook 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 your cargo on your vehicle for your next weekend getaway, to strapping down your favorite toys on your trailer. The 15' length of this strap is perfect for securing a motorcycle, UTV, or snowmobile in your truck bed or trailer.


Unlike traditional straps, which don't stretch or contract, these tie-downs are 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 toys that have suspension systems that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain.


Built-In Shocks

shockstrap rubber shock

The webbing of standard straps 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 these ratchet straps feature built-in urethane shocks that are designed to absorb impact and to allow give. This ensures that the tie-downs stay taut and won't loosen over time. The built-in shocks helps to keep the tie-downs from coming loose or failing, which could result in lost or damaged toys.


In addition, the shock ensures a longer life for the strap webbing. If you use this to tie down a motorcycle, for example, the constant compressing and rebounding of the bike'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 shocks absorb these jolts so that the webbing of the tie-downs stays put instead of wearing over the edges of your equipment.


Easy-to-Use Ratchet

Each tie-down features a commercial-grade, heavy-duty ratchet. 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 Straps

shockstrap s hook with clip

To use the ShockStrap ratcheting tie-down strap, first attach one of the durable S-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. And the retention clips on the hooks ensure that the hooks stay in place on the anchors while you're loading, as well as while you're traveling.


shockstrap soft loop with s hook

Soft loops, which are on both sides of the straps, 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 each tie-down around your gear. Just wrap a soft tie around the axle of your UTV or around the handlebars of your motorcycle, 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 shock. 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 shock, tighten the strap a bit more, stretching the shock until light is visible through the bolt holes in the shock. In warm climates, the shock 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 shock, make sure your cargo is completely secure and then tie off any extra slack.


Strong, Durable Construction

The sturdy, UV-resistant polyester webbing of these tie-down straps 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 each tie-down to provide peace of mind should something happen to the shock. 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 - SS38MV

Hello Everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this shock strap, 15 foot long ratchet, tie-down strap with the shock absorber for a quantity of one strap. Now this shock absorbing, ratcheting, tie-down strap will let you secure cargo in your truck bed or your trailer. And I want to zoom in on the unique feature of this strap, which has this built in urethane shock absorber. It's designed to help absorb any impact to ensure constant tension with strap, even as your mode shifts.

This shock absorber right here is made of a urethane based material. And it'll stand up to extreme temperatures, to salt water, moisture, oil, and most chemicals. And if you notice they attach it to the strap by using this sturdy grade A bolt and the nylock nuts, which will hold the shock in place. Also, if you notice on the side right here, it has a safety strap and that safety strap plugs on there for two purposes. The first one is to give you an extra strap if for some reason the shock absorber would break.

Now, the shock absorber would probably never break, but just for safety reasons, they do put this extra strap on there. The manufacturer does say that this shock absorber would have to be stretched 18 to 20 inches for it to even think about breaking and you'll notice when you use it and tighten it down that this will usually never even stretch hardly anything. But the other reason for the safety strap, the second reason, is to act like a limiter so that you don't over ratchet the strap. So basically what you do is when you hook up your strap and start tightening it down, as it tightens up, your one thingy, this strap here, will get closer to the shock absorber, and you'll want to use it as a guideline because you want to be able to slide your fingers and your hand, between the safety strap and the shock absorber for correct tension, so you'd be able to slide it in and slide it out. So as you tighten it down and it starts to stretch and get tighter, this will give you a good guideline of how tight you want it to be.

Now, this strap is DOT approved, Department of Transportation and also made in the USA. And also because of the shock absorber feature, this strap is great for securing cargo that has a suspension system that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain. So this strap is great for tying down snowmobiles, motorcycles, utility tractors, even ATVs and UTVs, cause what'll happen with those is because they have a suspension system, that'll give, if you go over any rough surfaces and it's strapped down and your suspension gives, it could loosen the straps. But with this straps, what's nice is the shock absorber will keep that tension so you don't run into that problem. The ratchet mechanism right here, you can see, makes it very easy to tighten down the strap and maintain tension on the strap.

You can see as you crank it and ratchet it it'll pull the strap in to tighten it. The very middle right here, you can see, has a nice release lever and this handle is nice and large because even if you're wearing thick, heavy gloves, you can still use it. Your gloves with your gloves on to operate the handle. Wanted to zoom out to just show you what we're talking about. So to ratchet it, just like that, you can see it pulling in this strap here. And the other nice feature is if you're gonna go hook up and you need to pull out some extra strap to attach it, what you can do is pull up on that release lever, release the handle and go all the way the other way and push it until it locks into place. And then that releases the handle from the ratchet mechanism. And it'll allow that strap to freeWheel so I can pull out as much as you need. So if you have a distance to go, it makes it quick and easy just to pull out what you need. Once you're there, hook it up and then just pull the lever, put your ratchet back or the handle back in the ratchet. And just like that, you're ready to crank it in. Very simple to operate. Very simple to hook up. Now on each end, they have these S hooks. We'll zoom in and show you the S hook. You can see here, these S hooks have a nice wide one inch opening. So when you push down the retention clip, gives you a nice one inch opening, allows a nice hassle-free connection to any anchor points. And if you notice on the hook itself, has a nice rubber coating on it, which'll protect your deer, your truck, or your trailer that you hooked it to. The retention clips, again, they keep the hooks connected to your anchor points and also on each end, you'll notice they have these straps with the loop on it. These are integrated soft loop so that you can wrap it around an axle or a handle bar, and then pull it tight up against the hook in case your hook won't be able to reach something, you can just use this, bring it back by and hook up. It makes it a lot easier. Now all the steel parts on the strap have a nice corrosion resistant yellow zinc Chromate coating. Holds up to any hot, cold or wet weather conditions and the webbing on this is a nice durable black polyester webbing, and it is UV resistant, will withstand abrasions and even water absorption. The dimension on the strap, that's one and a half inches wide. This one is 15 feet in length. Now they do also offer a shorter length, which is seven feet. We do sell that separately. It's on our website, it's part number SS58MV. Now the minimum usable length, in other words, the shortest you'd be able to use this at is 29 inches. Now they do have a list, a strap on here and it'll list the maximum load or breaking strength, which'll be 3000 pounds. And they also list the safe working load limit, which is a third of that so it'd be a thousand pounds. Now in tie-down straps, they must be chosen according to their 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 for a good example, if you're using these straps with a working load limit, let's say at 500 pounds each to tie down a load that weighs a thousand pounds, and you just need to use two straps to safely secure that load. And I do always like to recommend that you always use straps in pairs. But that should do it for the review on the shock strap, 15 foot long ratchet tie-down strap with the shock absorber for a quantity of one strap..

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.

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!

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


When I first saw these straps pictured, I was intrigued. Later, when I needed some new straps, I quickly decided to give them a try. Now, after using them for a year, I can confidently state that they are great! The materials are top-notch! Most importantly, I tow our side x side securely!

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.

I have had a few sets of these Shock Straps for years now, bought the originals from the developer at a trade show. I needed more, and etrailer shipped fast even during the holidays. Shock Straps are pricey but worth it when you need to secure a load and not worry about it.

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.

Still work great. I continue to use them regularly. My first trip with them was a 5000 mile cross country trip. Since then Ive done another 2,500 mile trip along with several other smaller trips. I probably have about 10,000 miles on the straps never an issue loosening up.

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Ratchet Straps


I have a Polaris Ranger I trailer over a very rough road several times a year. Normal straps Have never been able to hold and always become loose requiring additional tightening several times during the journey. I purchased four ShockStraps and they work great. They allow the Ranger to move slightly which reduces the bounce of the trailer on rough dirt roads. Also, I have peace of mind on the freeway that the straps will stay tight. I have been using them about a year and recommend them highly.
