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.

Erickson Re-Tractable, Bolt-On Tie-Down Straps

These heavy-duty Erickson ratchet straps take the hassle out of tying down gear - especially the cargo you transport frequently, such as your boat or motorcycle. Each ratchet housing permanently mounts to your trailer with a single bolt, which is included.

To use one of the tie-downs, simply push down the red release button and pull out the strap. Then secure the vinyl-coated steel S-hook to your cargo and ratchet the strap until it's tight. You have to hook up just one end of the strap each time. And because the straps are permanently mounted, you'll never have to search for a missing tie-down. This saves you time and frustration and gets you out on the road in a flash.

Video Transcript for Erickson Ratchet Straps Tips and Tricks

Here at etrailer we get a lot of questions on how to properly release the tension on our Erickson Ratchet Straps. In our semi-trailer here we've got a lot of shelving units that we'd like to strap down. So let's head on inside and we'll show you how these things work. Now I've already got one of my Erickson Ratchet Straps in place holding my cargo up against the wall of my trailer. We need to go ahead and run one more. So what I'm going to do is go ahead and pull my ratchet out, attach it to my anchor point, and I'm going to lead it down making sure there is no twists or kinks in my strap here. Then I'm going to attach it to my anchor point down here. And then we'll start ratcheting it this way.

We'll want to get that nice and secure that way we know it's not going to go anywhere. That looks pretty good. Now the real issue arises when you go to release the tension. A lot of people think that you just simply press in on this red button and then it gives. Well that's not the case. What you want to do is go ahead and grab ahold of the whole ratchet like this.

Get a nice firm grip on it, push in on the red button, and then close the whole ratchet like this. And then it simply releases the tension that way. Now with the tension broke free we can go ahead and disconnect it from our anchor points and then finish rolling it up. People that have only been pressing the button have reported that the button comes loose, bends, or even stops working over a period of time and they've had to cut the straps. But don't cut your straps. Follow these few simple steps and your Erickson Ratchet Straps will last you for a long time.

The ratchet straps mounted to the trailer with no issues. I was able to drive my UTV onto the trailer and secure it with in minutes. Sure beats untangling conventional straps. 747010

- EM34423

Excellent product. Only reason not 5 stars is due to them shipping M10-1.5 bolts that are 3” long where threading is only half of bolt, unlike picture on website. In other words, unless you are bolting to something at least 1.5” thick/deep, you will have to buy shorter bolts. Otherwise, excellent product. 680259

- EM34423

Excellent quality, of course everyone is skeptical at first, so wasn't I. Those worked stupendously well, was submerged many many times last summer under water and never failed me at all. Don't go spend a fortune, buy these, I assure you you will be happy. Anthony. H. Burlington. MA. PS: I am as fussy as you can get them and then some, if you can appease me then they must be awesome.

Great product, never failed me at all. recommend highly. You maintain it, and it will take care of you.

1 year in - Great Product...Makes loading and unloading soooo much faster. I had to install them on the deck of the trailer, not the sides as recommended. Purchased shorter bolts to accommodate the thickness of the trailer floor. 506692

- EM34423

I purchased 8 of these straps to install on my ATV trailer, the only issue I have is that a few of them aren’t retracting anymore but overall am happy with the purchase. I would’ve given 5 stars if not for the few that aren’t retracting any longer. My main reason to purchase these was to have the straps permanently on the trailer so I wouldn’t need to find and fight with them. 589663

- EM34423

I received the bolts and I want to thank you for your quick responses. The bolts are what i need and can install my straps. Thank you and have a Great Thanksgiving. 581666

Mounted these on my trailer to strap down my side by side and it works great! It’s so much faster and easier than typical ratchet straps. Well worth the money, I’d highly recommend! 576051

Had them for 2 month and they quit ratcheting! Still can’t get them fixed 565769

I installed them on the four conners of a utility trailer as soon as they arrived I have used them on a friends trailer and was very impressed with the ratchet straps that is why I purchased these. 556680

Ask the Experts about this Erickson Ratchet Straps

  • Can Oil be Used to Lubricate Erickson Push Button Retractable Ratchet Tie Downs # EM34423
    My contact at Erickson Manufacturing advised that a lubricant can be used on their Push Button Retractable Ratchet Tie Downs # EM34423 to help their retraction mechanism pull the strap back on to the spool. You will want to use a silicone-based lubricant (not grease, household oil or spray-on lubricants) in the gear mechanism. Erickson suggests going easy on the application (not too much at one time) until you see the results. You can find this silicone lubricant at a local hardware...

  • Bolt Size for Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34423
    The mounting bolts included with the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34423 have a 3/8 inch diameter and a length of 3 inches from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of the thread portion. The overall bolt length is 3-1/2 inches. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • Ratchet Strap Recommendation for Securing 4500 lb Tractor
    Each of the Erickson # EM34423 Retractable Ratchet Straps has a 1333 lb safe working load limit, so 4 straps would have a total capacity of 5,332 lbs, which would work just fine for a 4500 lb tractor. As long as the combined safe working load limit of the straps to be used is greater than the weight of the piece of equipment you're tying down, you'll be just fine.

  • Transom Tie Downs to Secure a 2000 World Cat 266 Leisure Cat
    BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 are the highest rated Boat Buckle option at a safe working load limit of 833 pounds each and break strength of 2,500 pounds each. And they will work with the brackets, # IMF14254, that you mentioned. The brackets will indeed afford you more mounting options and better angles to tie down the rear of the boat. We also have Erickson set # EM34423 which is rated for 1,333 pounds working load limit each and 4,000 pounds...

  • Can CE Smith Boat Trailer be Used with a Porta-Bote
    You probably would not have to modify CE Smith boat trailer # CE48810 to use it with your Porta Bote. The boat would just have to be properly secured to the trailer. The trailer can support boat up to 12 feet long and up to 800 pounds. For straps I recommend a transom tie down such as # IMF17631. Other useful straps you can use include # EM34423 which you can bolt directly to the trailer frame. Other than that I do not foresee any modifications being necessary.

  • Recommended Ratcheting Straps For Transom Of 3,000-Lb Boat
    The strap you came from, part # IMF14220 is 2-inches wide and 43-inches long. This has a maximum load limit of 2,500-lbs. This is sold individually so you will need to adjust the quantity when ordering. For transom straps that are a bit longer I recommend for your boat trailer are part # EM34423. These straps are 2-inches wide and 5-1/2 ft long. These straps have a 4,000-lb maximum load capacity. There are 2 straps in the package.

  • Retractable Strap Recommendation to Install on Venture Aluminum Boat Trailer
    I'd recommend going with the # EM34423 instead as it's closer to the length you need as it is 5-1/2 feet long and it has a higher capacity at 1,333 lbs working load limit and 4,000 lbs break strength. The ratchet portion could easily be attaches at the loop where you current strap is located.

  • Is Curt Stabilizer Strap 18050 Required for Class I Hitch Bike Rack on 2013 Volkswagen Golf TDI
    Some light-duty Class I hitches such as the Curt # C11498, and the # C11000 that fits your 2013 Volkswagen Golf (as long as it is not the R model), do require use of a stabilizing strap like # 18050 or a similar item on non-trailer loads in order to retain your warranty coverage. Not all Class I hitches have this requirement. Draw-Tite hitch # 24825 can be used without a support strap. You are certainly free to use an alternate strap, such as a ratcheting tie down like # EM34423 or a similar...

  • Tie Down Strap Recommendation for Securing 2 Kayaks on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    If you use the Tongue Extension Kit # Y08109 along with your Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 then you will be able to transport your two 18-foot kayaks provided their combined weight does not exceed the trailer's limit of 250-lbs. If you need to add weight capacity to the trailer, use Yakima's heavy-duty shock kit # Y08110 which increases total load carrying to 350-lbs. The tongue extension does not include cargo tie-down points but a ratcheting strap like # EM34423 will help secure the...

  • Can a Ratchet Strap be Used in Place of Curt Stabilizer Strap # 18050
    You can indeed use a different strap, other than # 18050, if you want to. It needs to be a rigid strap, one that doesn't stretch. A ratchet strap can work but you have to be careful not to overtighten it which could damage the vehicle or bike rack. I recommend ratchet strap # EM34423 because it retracts automatically and has coated hooks to protect the vehicle and bike rack.

  • Can Single E-Track Run Down Center of Trailer for Securing ATV
    Yes, if you ran a single E-track down between the wheels of your ATV like with the part # E19148 you could secure the front and rear of an ATV with it by using a tie down ring like part # 59147 and ratchet straps like # EM34423.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2007 Lexus RX 400h for Use with Motorcycle Carrier
    All of the hitches we offer for your 2007 Lexus RX 400h are 2-inch Class III types that share the same 350-lb tongue weight (TW) rating. You can see all by clicking on the link provided for you. The Curt # 13530 is the lowest price option and so I recommend this hitch for your 400h since in this instance there's no reason to spend more for the same capacity. A total weight load of 300-lbs from your dirt bike and its carrier is within the hitch capacity but its also a good idea to check...

  • Adarac Pro Series Ladder Rack for a 2018 Ram 2500 Long Bed and BAKFlip Tonneau Cover
    The Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A4000957 is what you want for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the 8' bed. This is compatible with your BAKFlip cover whether you have the F1 # BAK72204, G2 # BAK26204, or the MX4 # BAK48204. I also recommend checking out the Tie-Down Kit # A4000882, as well as the Load Stop Kit # A4000880 . The Pro Series part # A4000955 that you referenced is actually designed for Ford Super Duty pickups with a short bed so you don't want to go with that.

  • Will the Erickson Ladder Rack Work with a 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 5-1/2' Bed
    The Erickson Side Mounted Ladder Rack # EM07708 will fit on your 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 with 5-1/2' bed and can carry your 20' Aluminum Ladder. What is great about this rack is it sits on the side so you have room for other gear and the support arms adjust to easily fit your ladder. I recommend using the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps with Push Buttons # EM34423 to tie down your latter to the rack. The quick-release buttons simplify unloading and retractable design keeps straps...

  • Where to Mount Stabilizing Strap on a 1991 Mitsubishi Montero for a Bike Rack and Curt Trailer Hitch
    When using a bike rack or cargo carrier with the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 12181, on a 1991 Mitsubishi Montero, you can use Curt Bike Rack Strap with Cambuckle, # 18050. Or, you can use another type of strap, like bungee straps, # 3044DAT, or ratchet straps, # EM34423, to help support the rack. Basically, any type of strap that will help support the rack will work. Ideally, you would want the strap to be connected to a point on the vehicle that is higher and/or more forward than the rack...
