    • Keeps straps neatly stowed when they're not in use

    • Rubber coating on handle provides a good grip
  • Push buttons on ratchets quickly and easily release straps when you're ready to unload
  • Vinyl-coated steel S-hooks help prevent scratches on your cargo
  • Steel bodies resist corrosion
  • Durable polyester webbing resists tears and abrasions


  • Strap dimensions: 2" wide x 5-1/2' long
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 1,333 lbs

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.

Heavy-duty tie-downs bolt to your trailer so that you can easily secure your boat or other cargo. Quick-release buttons simplify unloading, and the retractable design keeps straps neatly stored when they're not in use. 4,000 lbs Max load.


I had ratchet straps on a previous trailer,. When I purchased another bass boat that did not have them,I immediately ordered this set and installed them. I like the convenience, ease of use and security the straps provide.


I would suggest going to a fully theaded bolt vs. The super long shank version currently provided. The mounting spot on my trailer is maybe a 1/4 thick so I had to go purchase new mounting bolts to be able to use. This was just an inconvenience but could be easily corrected on the selling side of this product. Pictures show what it came with vs. What I had to purchase.


I like everything about this product except the bolt supplied. It was not useable with my aluminum boat trailer.
The eye on the trailer made of steel is provided for connecting a hook type strap. I had to purchase two bolts
to be able to use them. If the bolts were fully threaded they could have been used with the excess cut off.


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.

PS: I am as fussy as you can get them and then some, if you can appease me then they must be awesome. AH.

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


George: Here are the tie down straps attached to my trailer . As you can see it is no ordinary trailer as it carries my aircraft that I built (it took my 27 years to complete) . I trailer the aircraft from my house to the airport and back . Straps work as advertised . Thanks!



These ratchet straps are great. I replaced all the original straps on my Triton tandem jet ski trailer. These ratchets have made a huge difference. I definitely recommend this product.


We have a dozen of these. The only problem is the auto retract feature only works about 3-5 weeks. The straps last about 1.5 years. (They are used dailey on lawn care trailer’s . )


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.


I had a strap break that was holding my motorcycle on the way to S.C. I called etrailer and told them of the problem I had and they went out of their way to help me out. The staff at etrailer was great. I ordered a new set of EM344423 straps, and the sales person assured me I would receive them in time to use on my return trip home. The new straps are now mounted on the trailer, and I am very pleased with the service and the product I received. I would/will definitely recommend etrailer to others. Thank to ALL the staff at etrailer for your help. James M. South Beloit, IL.

Fantastic! I have no complaints what so ever. Thank you once again.


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.


good product and excellent price


Strong and sturdy. Quick to attach my ATV and release.


Boat tie-downs arrived quickly, and I found them to be well made and much easier to use than ml ost. The push button retraction works very well for my application. Thanks for fast service.

Terry T.


After a year of use and Arizona sun, these straps are still great.


I don't use these as transom tie downs. I use them to tie down my off road truck camper. It used to take about ten minutes to do it with the other tie down system. Now I'm down to about two to three minutes with these straps. They are still in great shape with no tears or ratchet issues. Highly recommend.


I was using a different brand of retractable strap. I found those to be weak and I was replacing them yearly. The Erikson however seem to be much stronger and of better quality. The Erikson were easy to install and after a month of use they hold my utility vehicle in place even on the roughest back roads!

Pete B.


Well after 3 of 4 work. One doesnt retract anymore.


These are decent for the money. I saw Walmart had em as well under a different name and about $10 more. I have a set made by Boatbuckle (sold here at the best price) on my good boat. Now those are nice. They operate smooth and look a lot nicer then these. These are good for the money and seem to be made fairly well.

Jay W.


One of the buckles doesnt retract all the way after using approx 10X. Really wish I would had purchased a pair of boatbuckles instead of these. The difference in quality is nightday.


I bought this to hold down the bow of the boat to the trailer. I bought them as a pair and I'm glad I did because the first one locked and wouldn't release so I had to cut the strap. I am currently using the second one and hope to have better luck with it. It probably was only used a dozen times. I love the design but not real confident in its durability.


I don't know if I just received a bad pair or what. I bought these thinking I'd save some money...oops. The ratchet system does not work well. One is stuck now and can't move either way. They've been rough working right out of the box. I bought CargoBuckle G3's at a higher price and they've been seamless and smooth working. Spend the extra $$.


Use these to tie down our car to a trailer. They have worked excellent.
Great product for our application



They have worked well for my application. I have 4 of them tieing down my 32 Ford on a trailer. The only issue is the return springs start to get weak on one or two of the ratchets. Then you have to ratchet the strap in but they are secure.


Have used these to strap down my power chair when it's on the car lift. Have had very good results with this product, easy to use.

Barry W.


Continue to have good success with these straps. Just keep them lubed and they work well.


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.


I bought these retractable bolt on cargo hooks to replace others that came with my original equipment on a wheelchair lift. My old ones do not hold up in the triple degree heat. So far the Erickson ones are a bit harder to operate with 2 hands, but they are much stronger. I'm sure these will hold up much longer. They're exceptionally stronger. A well made product.


Great product at a reasonable price. I received them today and installed them this evening. They will make unloading and loading my boat a little easier. I also own 2 sets of 4each of the 1inch Erickson Retractable straps I use to secure my 4 wheeler to my trailer. Very happy with their product. Etrailer shipping was fast. Thanks!


Absolutely awesome replacement for the broken retractable ratchet on my electric cart carrier (whose replacement part was $125.00) It is made in AMERICA and not made YOU KNOW WHERE !!!!! I know, as the other 3 tie downs break, what that will be replaced with.


The straps worked great although I should have ordered smaller ones for my kayak trailer. I needed smaller hooks on the end of strap. The quality of these are great.

  • 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.

  • 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 store. Please...

  • 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 neatly...

  • 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.

  • Recommendation for Bolt-On Ratchet Straps to Secure Polaris ATV to Trailer
    To secure your Polaris ATV to the trailer I recommend taking a look at the CamBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Straps # IMF18800. These ratcheting tie-downs can be permanently bolted to your trailer to allow for much quicker (and cleaner) loading and unloading. They each feature a safe working load limit of 1,167 pounds and the push-to-release levers let you loosen the straps with ease. Two ratchet straps are included. You might consider getting two sets so that you can have all...

  • 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.

  • Mounting Hardware Size for IMF14087
    The E-Track Adapter Straps for CargoBuckle Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps # IMF14087 uses 1-1/2" long x 7/16" diameter bolts. The mounting point on the Erickson Ratchet Straps # EM34423 uses 3-1/2" long x 3/8" diameter mounting bolts. If you wanted to use the two together you would need to buy separate hardware since the bolts from the CargoBuckle adapter straps will not fit the Erickson and the bolts from the Erickson straps are too long and not completely threaded.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Easy Loading Electric Fat Tire Scooter Carrier
    I do have a potential solution for you, however we do not carry the product you're referencing. What I recommend is, to use the etrailer Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp for 2" Hitch # e98873. This has a ramp for easy loading and unloading, has the ability to support up to 500ls, and fits into any 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers. This product also has adjustable wheel holders to accommodate a variety of wheel bases. From here you can use some ratchet straps like # EM34423 to secure your scooter...

  • 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.

  • 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, # EM06664, # EM06656, # EM06658, # EM06668, 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...

  • Tie Down Strap Recommendation for Securing 2 Kayaks on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer

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.

With the EXO, you can also attach a TopShelf for Yakima EXO SwingBase # Y94VR for extra storage. The great thing about the EXO is that it comes with a simple bolt-on...

  • 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.

  • 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 # A69FR 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.
