Bright red tie-downs pair quick-release action with a retractable design for easy loading and unloading of your gear. Strap automatically retracts into the housing and releases with the push of a button. Includes carrying case. 1,200 lbs Max load.


  • Tie-downs are perfect for securing your gear
    • Strap down gear in your truck bed, trailer, cargo carrier, or roof rack
    • Secure your ATV, UTV, or boat for trailering
  • Retractable straps automatically wind up into the built-in housings with the push of a button
    • Minimal ratcheting is required to tighten down straps
    • Keeps excess strap from tangling or flapping in the wind
  • Ratchet mechanisms make it easy to tighten down straps and maintain tension on straps
    • Ribbed plastic handles are easy to grip
  • Push buttons on ratchets quickly and easily release straps when you're ready to unload
  • Rubber coating on S-hooks helps prevent scratches on your cargo
  • Bright red polyester webbing is easy to see
  • Handy carrying case is included


  • Strap dimensions: 1" wide x 10' long
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Maximum load (break strength): 1,200 lbs
  • Quantity: 4 ratchet straps
  • 90-Day limited warranty

Note: Tie-down straps must be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). The weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined WLL of the straps being used. For example, if you are using straps with a WLL of 500 lbs each to tie down a load weighing 1,000 lbs, then you need at least 2 straps to safely secure that load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Retractable Ratchet Straps

These retractable ratchet straps are an upgrade over standard ratchet straps. To use the straps, begin by pushing the button on the ratchet and pulling out as much strap webbing as needed. Secure the hook to an anchor point, and then ratchet the remaining slack to make sure your gear is held down tight. Because these straps are retractable, there will already be tension on the strap when you begin to ratchet, meaning that you'll spend less time tightening the straps down. When it's time to unload, push the button on the ratchet to release the strap. Then unhook the strap and push the button again to automatically retract the strap back into the housing. This feature also keeps loose ends neatly wound up so they aren't flapping in the wind or getting dirty during your haul.

Video Transcript for Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Strap Review

Randy: Hey, guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at a Four-Pack of Ratchet Straps from Erickson. These are going to be the retractable-style straps, which means we're not going to have a big tag end hanging out. Now, I like the way these ratchet straps work. They are going to be a little heavier than what we're used to with just standard ratchet straps. There's a lot of benefits to them.We'll start with the push button release.

You can see the red button located right here. That's going to bring this tab up to where it clears over that catch. You see that's in our locked position right there, so that catch keeps us from going any further. Push our release and then just push straight down. You see that's going to click apart, giving us that slack we need to disconnect.Now, when we want to reconnect it after the release, we'll just press down on our red button.

You see how that's going to take in that slack, move it up into its engaged position and then just begin to ratchet it. The ratchet itself is nice and wide. It has smooth edges all the way around, not going to have to worry about catching our fingers on anything sharp, and you'll have enough room to get a couple of fingers on there. Should allow you to get good torque applied. You see that's our locked position.

That's going to keep our handle from going back and releasing or forward and trying to tighten any.Overall, the housing, you can see all metal components here fully coated with the clear zinc. See not really any flex or any give to it like we see out of some of the lighter duty straps. Rubber coated handle there and push button release. Then our clock spring built in here for the retractability is going to be fully encased there in that plastic housing. The strap material itself feels very, very similar to a seatbelt.

You see it's kind of got that fine weave to it, good thickness to it, feels just in line with those medium duty straps, not super thin but also not thick and heavy. Each of the hooks are going to have a rubber coating on them. They are steel hooks. We're going to get excellent strength out of those. That rubber is going to help protect any painted surfaces or more delicate surfaces from scratching.Now, overall the straps' going to be 1" wide. We're going to have 10' in total length. It's also going to offer us a safe working load limit of 400 pounds, so you don't want to exceed that per strap. Another good rule of thumb, always use straps in pairs. That's what I like about it coming as a four-pack. We're going to have plenty of straps. We can get items secured down. Using two straps, it's going to offer you some redundancy if in case you're going to have a failure on one side, wouldn't have to worry about it.Something else I like about this strap kit. It is going to come with a carrying case. You can see we can get all four of our ratchets down and in there, get them clipped off. Now, you can see this is kind of a plastic lining inside. The case itself feels pretty durable, plastic opening on, or a see-through cover there so you can see in, see what's going on. Overall the zipper feels pretty reasonable. It certainly isn't any kind of ballistic nylon military grade something or other, but it'll do a good job of keeping your straps in there and handy. If you don't care about them being separated like that, you could pull that liner out, adds a few tools or something like that if you wanted to.To get our strap installed, we just want to press down that red release button we had talked about earlier. We want to ensure the strap, the position is not in the locked position but in the release position that we saw earlier. Pull down that button just a little bit. We can hook it onto our attachment point. Notice that while I hold that button down, it'll reel in and out. If I let go of the button while it's still unlocked, then it just clicks to length and it'll hold that position. So it'll be up to you in how you want to use it. When we make our connection on that other side, just press that red button. That's going to take out most of the slack that we've got. Lift it into the ready to use position and continue to tighten it down.Now, with these ratchet straps, there's a little bit of a weight here, a little bit heavier than what we get out of most. So you definitely want to support it initially as you use it, but then just let it go once you get some tension to make sure you get out all that slack. All right. Once we have that nice and secure, we got our other one over there. We'll throw a couple on the back. We don't have any tag ends to deal with or get tied up, so we're ready to hit the road.

If you don’t need a 25 foot strap and you’re not trying to tie-down an elephant these self-retracting straps are ideal. I use them to secure items inside my RV storage compartments and securing lawn chairs on my rear ladder rack. No more fumbling with extra strap I don’t need or use.

- EM04418

It is by far the best ratchet strap I have ever owned! I threw all my other straps in the trash. Very easy to use and one of the best purchases I made last year

- EM04418

I have bought these before and found them to be the best ever tie down straps made. No fuss, no muss. Pull them out and push the button to retract. I love them!

- EM04418

I like the racket straps, they work great. Great thing to buy, they came fast,thank you.

- EM04418

Shipping was fast. I could track my order in detail after it was placed. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. It's nice that they even come with a case for storage. The ratchet straps look like they are of excellent quality. I'm very happy I purchased them through etrailer. com. I will most likely be a return customer to them for other products.

- EM04418

These are replacing standard straps, friend has these same retractables and they work really well and easy to use.

Very very good

- EM04418

Nice product easy and no twisting of the straps

- EM04418

Recently received these and did a brief test. The ratchet mechanism and spring-loaded rewind works as advertised. I'm looking forward to never having sticking release mechanisms and twisted strips.

- EM04418

I love my Erickson Re-Tractable ratchet straps I got. They are easy to use & I like that there is no extra strap to have to tie off. It takes me about half the time it used to,to strap things to my trailer.

They are still working great. I would recommend them to anyone that dont like tying off exes strape.
Lavern - 10/05/2019

- EM04418

These are the last straps you will ever buy. No tails to tie up, no more untangling 20 ft strapping.

- EM04418

Great service I ordered a small part from another company was supposed to shipmi still don't have it

- EM04418

Exactley as described and very fast shi pping.

Still great and the easiest straps to use.

- EM04418

As always, the order arrived on time, and packaged well. Although, the handy carrying case for the straps was damaged, “by the shipper I believe”, in transit, as the box was crushed in one corner. But as always, I am absolutely satisfied with etrailer, and will always be my first source for any track, or trailer needs.

- EM04418

Of the 8 straps I purchased only one broke in the last 12 months. I use these 3-4 days a week. The retraction spring is starting to get week but still does a good enough job. Overall very satisfied with these straps! The 2" straps are great too

- EM04418

- EM04418

These just did not work out for me holding an ATV down on a trailer. The releases are very difficult to press. They stretch or compress under pressure. One of them snapped after only 3 uses. I cannot recommend these. The retractor feature is nice, but they just don't last or work as I had hoped. I can't use them any more.

- EM04418

They work better than I thought they would. Very good product just like everything else I purchased from you. Keep up the great work .

- EM04418

These are the best straps, easy to use and even easier to store.

I have bought 4 more sets and have friends who have also bought these!!

From start to finish with: searching, pricing, reading reviews, ordering and the follow-ups from your company it was & is a positive and satisfying experience overall! Kudo’s to your fine work and trustworthy company. [Thumbs up]

- EM04418

A lot easier to use than regular ratcheting straps. Stores easily.

- EM04418

Best ratchet straps ever... easy to release and self-winding storage.

- EM04418

You can't beat retractable tiedowns. No extra strap flying in the air and so much more convenient and faster.

  • Will Adco Class C RV Storage Cover 290-36042 Fit 2004 Four Winds Chateau 31Z
    RV roof covers like the Adco # 290-36042 for Class Cs like your 32-1/2-foot 2004 Four Winds Chateau 31Z are made to fit a range of RV lengths but they do not take into account any added height from accessory items like wheel ramps. The cover will certainly fit and secure properly to the RV since it works on RVs up to 36-feet in length but it is possible that the anchor straps will not reach down to the ramps. It is possible you will need additional tie-downs like # EM04418 to secure...

  • What Do you Recommend for 3 Kayaks, Exterior Storage, and 12 Fishing Rods?
    I have a solution for you. For 2 of your kayaks, your fishing rods (maximum of 12), and a covered 18 cu. foot cargo box, I recommend the Malone Ultimate Angler MegaSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers - Fishing Rod Tubes - 1,000 lbs # MPG550-AU. The reason why you should go with a trailer as opposed to a hitch cargo carrier and a roof rack is because those options will not allow you to transport all the accessories you want to transport. The great thing about having the Angler MegaSport...

  • How to Carry an Elliptigo 11R Bike on a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
    Your best option to carry your Elliptigo 11R is going to be a cargo carrier instead of a bike rack. Specifically cargo carrier # 52018F because it is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch with a reducer # HT02 , which is what is available for the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta, and because it is wide enough at 60 inches for the 54 inch wheelbase of your bike. You could then use ratchet straps, # EM04418, 2 at the front and 2 at the back, to secure the bike to the carrier. The available bike...

  • Can Erickson Ratcheted Tie-Down Ropes be Used to Secure Lumber on Roof of a 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx
    I would not recommend a rope tie down such as # 01801 for transporting lumber on the roof of your 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx. Using ratchet straps such as # EM04418 provides more surface area contact with the wood and you can get them tighter than # 01801. If you were to use # 01801 or something similar I would recommend putting eye bolts in the ends of each piece of wood on each side, running the rope through those, and securing the rope at the front and rear of the vehicle. Then you could...
