It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

I am using these inside my modestly converted Sienna Minivan to tie down my eBike and camping supplies. Used them this weekend. Expensive, but worth it for me - big timesaver and my corgi inside the van does not move. Simple to tie down, quick to take down. Retractable feature is the key. Works as advertised, high quality product!

The retractable ratchet straps have been a winner all year. Looking back at these pictures I realize that since they were taken I converted my minivan by installing my self-designed internal, hard surface flat bed, including D-Rings a wood support frame with 38 4x8 plywood covered by heavy duty vinyl. The ratchets still hold down my cargo not corgi net loose loads and directly tie down my larger loads. I camp out for a week at a time with this setup and the straps make for quick loading and unloading of gear. NO QUESTION - would buy again, still holding up with minor wear and tear.

These are the best and easiest to use tie down straps that I have ever used.


Very nice quality I will be using these to hold dry bags on the roof of our motorhome. I like how they have no “bitter end” or tail flapping in the wind

These ratchet straps worked great holding gear bags down on the roof of our RV for 5 months while in Alaska. When we arrived home I used one strap to restrain movement on an implement after a very short time the strap broke. The ratchet portion on the straps have worked flawlessly when kept clean. The straps themselves are lightweight just pay attention to the weight of your load. Otherwise with lightweight use I’m very happy with them. I would rate them 4

I drove a rental trailer with a large bagger motorcycle and a sportbike from Central Ohio to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Zion and Rocky Mountain National Park then back to Ohio. I used 4 straps per bike: two on the bars (lightly compressed to protect the fork seals) and two on the rear wheels ratcheted down hard. I unloaded and reloaded the bikes 5 times total over 3 weeks. Nothing budged...ever. These straps are AMAZING!


great products, great service, as always. thanks again!


some of the best straps on the market. work as advertised


I've looked a long time to find ratchet-type, retractable straps I'd trust to hold my Ducati 1100S on it's Stinger trailer. I've found them. Thanks.


Just what I needed to strap down all kinds of things and the retractable straps are the best.


Seem to be high quality, and they are very easy to operate. It's tough to find ratchet straps less than 10 feet, so these are a life-saver for me (we have a small trailer) and the 10 foot straps are too long to work. Love the release mechanism; even my 10 year old can use them no problem.




I use these ratchet straps daily,they are great and wish I had them years ago.


I bought these for my wife to tie her ATV down to the trailer. She gets frustrated with normal ratchet ties; how to use them, broken nails, stow away the excess etc. These ones are intuitive and she quickly got the hang of them without reference to the instructions! First impressions are great and it seems to be a quality product.

Now if only there was a self-reversing trailer I could get her for Xmas...

This is an update to my original review these ties were used about 12 times with no problem. After that all 4 got stuck when under tension. No amount of pressing the button or taking tension off the suspension would release the wretched things. So I cut them all off and threw them away. Going back to the old annoyingly flappy, but reliable ratchets. Wife still cant reverse the trailer either...

Best tie-downs ever! We use the 1 inch straps to secure a motorcycle to a rack on the back of our RV. Been over 25,000 miles bouncing down the highway and these straps have never loosened. Wratching mechanism makes them so easy to use! Have recommended to many others!


Glad I found these straps on the etrailer site as they are awesome. The retract design is great and the ratchet action with pushbutton release is smooth and easy .The wife loves how easy they are to get the Kubota mower strapped down and ready to go without all the tangles and knots or breaking a nail ! I will definitely buy from etrailer again with their great communication and super fast shipping .


These are my first time purchasing and using Retractable Ratchet Straps. Since my purchase, I have used them twice. They have worked well thus far, but most products work as designed when new. The strap material seems to be light however fully I understand these straps are only designed for 500lb work load.
Time will tell how the quality of these straps.....From the mechanisms getting dirty from rain/dirt traveling down the road to the longevity of the strap material.


I purchased these straps for use in my Toy Hauler. We carry a Goldwing Trike with us and using regular straps was becoming a real pain as they all had to be rolled up and stored when we reached our destination. I think these are going to make my life much simpler as all I have to do is hit the button and they retract into themselves and are then very easy to store. I think that I am going to be very happy with my purchase.


For someone like myself who trailers snowmobiles and boat maybe a handful each year, these are foolproof. It always seemed I was fumbling trying to figure out which way to feed the strap in to ratchet etc. usually having to undo and try again to tighten them or get too much strap caught up. These are effortless. My12 yr old did it with simple instructions. They appear to be of great quality also. Coated to help with rust etc. I'm writing this the day I received them so I unable to show pics. Just excited to share and believe there will be no disappointment Price very reasonable


Great service, tie down straps arrived and performed as described when I first spoke to ordering department.
Button release performs as expected.
Delivery arrived at time promised,accompanied by an email from etrailer.

Great experience. I will purchase from etrailer again without hesitation.



I think that Erickson makes a GREAT retractable ratchet strap. It is well built with coated hooks,push button strap release & the strap is seat belt like material. I will be using these straps for tying down ATV'S. THESES STRAPS ARE GREAT !!!


going to use them to strap down my motorcycle looks like they're going to be very handy with the rewind

Work great, have not had any problems and are handy to use
john r - 10/21/2015


Much easier to take out of the trailer gear box. Doesen't turn in to a "snake ball" of tangled straps.


These are not my first set of these tiedowns ! The continue to work flawlessly and keep the tied motorcycles MUCH safer to step around.. NO LOOSE ENDS !! good value as well.


These are the Best straps. I love that I do not have to worry about extra strap hanging all over the place.
You really cannot beat the service from I ordered these @ 10pm and received a email from a person ( not a machine) Letting me know they were in stock. etrailer also emailed me to make sure I received the item!!! I will definitely by from them again.


Finally a tie down system that works! Other styles and brands have the straps not connected and its a hassle to setup and use. I hate messing around threading straps through buckles when trying to use old style systems. These babies are self contained and are ready to be used 24/7


This are the best ratchet straps I have ever owned, I will use them to tie down some, very heavy, very old hit and miss engines to my trailer.

  • Having Trouble Releasing Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34420
    I recommend spraying the gears on the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps, # EM34420, with a silicone-based lubricant. This should help with the problem.

  • 10 Foot Long Erickson Retractable Ratchet Recommendations
    What you would want is the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34415, these are 10 feet long and 1 inch wide. These are sold in pairs. If you needed a total of four straps you would need to order a quantity of 2. I attached a review video for you to check out also. The part # EM34420 that you referenced is 6 feet long so I would not recommend it for you.

  • How Long is the Fixed Strap of the Erikson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps and Is There a Shorter Option
    I called Erikson to check, and the length of the fixed strap of the Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases, part # EM34420, is 3.5" from loop to start of the hook. Erikson does have a Re-Tractable Rachet Strap that allows the hook to fully retract. It's part # EM34417. The only drawback to this is that there is only one hook. However, it still has the option to be bolted down, so it can still work. I've linked to a video review of this strap for you to look at.

  • Size of S-Hooks on Erickson Retractable Push Button Release Ratchet Straps # 34413
    I measured the diameter of the pre-drilled tie-down holes on the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100; these measure 3/4-inch. The plastic-coated hooks on the Erickson Retractable Push Button Release Ratchet Straps # 34413 measure 23/64-inch diameter (just under 3/8-inch). These hooks will easily fit in the tie-down holes on the Curt carrier. The Erickson straps feature a convenient push button ratchet release that will retract the straps fully into the housing with a press of the red button. We...

  • Can You Transport a Scooter on the MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier?
    The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 48" Long Ramp MT70106 can hold your 250 pound scooter on your 2012 Jeep Liberty. As far as dimensions, the interior measurements of the Wheelchair Carrier are 48 inches long x 28 inches wide x 5 inches deep. As long as your scooter fits within these dimensions, you are good to go. If you need fastening straps for transporting your scooter, I recommend the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases # EM34420. The ratchet mechanisms...

  • Recommendation for Ratchet Straps to Secure Rhino to D-Rings on Utility Trailer
    I can help you get the right straps for your Rhino and utility trailer. I recommend the Erickson # EM34420, this kit includes 4 straps rated for 500lbs each. Since tie-down straps must be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL), when all 4 straps are used together it will give you a working load limit of 2,000lbs, which is more than enough to secure your Rhino to your trailer. I've included a video of how these straps work for your convenience.

  • Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack for Transporting Kayaks on 1998 Forest River Coachman
    Any kayak transported on a vehicle or trailer must be oriented in the front-to-back direction to minimize wind drag. Any other orientation would reduce stability of the kayaks and negatively affect your mileage. I suggest you consider using a foam block type carrier such as one of those shown on the included link. The advantages of this type of carrier are their light weight, low cost, easy installation and that they avoid the expense and hassle of installing a rack that might interfere...

  • Recommended Method to Transport 120-lb Jon Boat on 2004 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack
    A good first step is a check of your 2004 Toyota Highlander owner's manual to confirm the vehicle's roof weight carrying capacity. A boat of 120-lbs could certainly be near or even over the vehicle roof weight limit so I suggest you check on that before proceeding. I reviewed several online documents suggesting a limit between 100- and 120-lbs, but your manual should indicate the weight capacity of your particular Highlander as it is equipped from the factory. If you have already crossbars...

  • Will the Draw Tite Cargo Carrier Fold Up When Attached to a 2011 Toyota Sienna
    In order to determine if the Draw-Tite Cargo Carrier # 6502 will fold up a single measurement is needed. That measurement is from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper on your 2011 Toyota Sienna.

    The Ultra-Fab motorcycle carrier # UF48-979033 is the only one that is rated for use at the back of a motor home so it would be the best option. However, there are some issues that you need to be aware of. Carrying large items at the front of your 2014 Toyota Tundra does present a couple of issues. First is the capacity issue. The front mount hitch needs to have a tongue weight capacity that is greater than the combined weight of the scooter and the carrier it is on. From what I could...

    Yes, the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65053 is the correct choice for your 2010 Lazy Daze motorhome with the Ford E-450 Chassis. This hitch is capable of supporting 500lbs of vertical load. For a small motorcycle carrier I recommend the etrailer Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp # e98873. It weighs in at 58lbs which will allow you a motorcycle up to 442lbs. The track is 76-1/4" long x 4-7/8" wide. And to strap the bikes in some Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34420...

It is able to fold for storage when it is not in use and has reflectors to be seen at night. I have linked the page for more of our cargo carrier options. I also recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches...

  • What Crossover Toolbox and Ladder Rack Do You Recommend for a 2013 Toyota Tundra 6-Foot Bed?
    For a crossover-style tool box that is confirmed to fit your 2013 Toyota Tundra (6-1/2 foot bed), I recommend the UWS Truck Bed Toolbox w/ Pull Handles - Crossover Style - Low Profile - 8.4 cu ft - Matte Black # UWS07644. The UWS toolbox has a crossover style and has an overall dimension of 69-7/8" long x 20" wide x 14-1/2" tall. This will give you plenty of space to store your tools when you are either working out of the garage or at the work site. As far as a ladder rack for ladders...

    The Curt cargo carrier, # C18145, will fit in a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch trailer hitch (Class II and III) so provided your 2011 Nissan Pathfinder has a Class II or III hitch the carrier will fit. To make sure it clears the rear of the vehicle, measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the vehicle straight back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 6 inches, the carrier will clear the rear bumper. For a cargo bag, you can use the etrailer bag,...

Also, your available crossbar space should be longer than 40-1/2 inches long. In order to make sure that the basket will fit your crossbars, I recommend you measure these dimensions.

There is also an 8 foot version, # SLLS28RER, 16 foot version, # EM59139, and 20 foot version, # EM59140. What I would do is ratchet strap each bundle with a regular ratchet strap such as # EM34420. Then I would secure them against the trailer using the E-track and E-Track ratchet straps.

  • What Ladder Rack will Work with a Mountain Top Tonneau Cover on a 2019 Ford Ranger?
    I have a solution for you. I did some research on the Mountain Top bed systems, and it looks like the system covers both the inside rails of the truck bed as well as the stake pockets. Unfortunately, all the ladder racks we carry require for one of those two options to be available for installation of our ladder racks. With that being said, I recommend the Rhino-Rack T-Load # RTL002. The rise of the T-Load on the back hitch has an adjustable height of 42" - 64" inches. For securing your...

The hitch on your 2004 Chevrolet Suburban needs to have a tongue weight (TW) rating high enough for the combined weight of your bike and the carrier that will hold it.
