The built-in shock absorbers on these 4 ratcheting straps compensate for the movement of your motorcycle's suspension so that each strap stays tight around the bike, even on rough roads. Soft ties won't scratch your bike. 3,000-lb Max load.


Features:

  • Shock absorbing ratchet straps let you secure your motorcycle to your truck bed or trailer
  • Built-in shocks absorb impact to ensure constant tension, even if your bike shifts
    • Urethane-based material stands up to extreme temperatures, saltwater, moisture, oil, fungi, and most chemicals
  • Ratchet mechanism makes it easy to tighten down each strap and maintains tension on straps
    • Plastic-coated handle and release lever ensure simple, safe operation, even if you're wearing thick gloves
  • 3/8" S-hooks with wide openings allow hassle-free connection to anchor points
    • Rubber coating on hooks prevent scratches and scuffs on your gear, truck, or trailer
    • Retention clips keep the hooks connected to anchor points
  • Corrosion-resistant yellow zinc chromate coating on steel hardware holds up to hot, cold, and wet weather conditions

Specs:

  • Dimensions: 1-1/2" wide x 7' long
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 1,000 lbs
  • Maximum load (break strength): 3,000 lbs
  • Quantity: 4 ratchet straps
  • 2-Year 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.


ShockStrap Motorcycle Tie-Down Kit

This tie-down kit is perfect for strapping down your motorcycle. It includes 4 ratchet straps with built-in shocks to keep the straps tight around your bike so that you won't have to stop and tighten them while traveling.


Unlike traditional straps, which don't stretch or contract, these tie-downs are uniquely designed with built-in shock absorbers that allow the straps to maintain constant tension on your load as you travel. These are great for motorcycles, which have bouncing suspension systems that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain.


Built-In Shocks

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 bike as it shifts.


Close of up the 2-inch ratchet ShockStrap tie-downs

But these ratchet straps each feature 2 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 help to keep the tie-down 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. The constant compressing and rebounding of your 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

Close-up of open ShockStrap ratchet

Each tie-down features a commercial-grade, field-replaceable ratchet that is easy to use. 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 Motorcycle Tie-Down System

Once your motorcycle is in your truck bed or on your trailer, place the front tire of the bike in a wheel chock (sold separately). Placing your toy in a wheel chock helps to hold the bike in position during travel.


Each strap has soft loops built in so that you can tie down your bike without having to worry about the metal hooks or hardware of the straps potentially scratching or scuffing it. To use the soft loops, simply cinch the strap around a secure location on the bike, and run the tie-down's hook through the loop.


Motorcycle tied down using 1.5-inch ratchet ShockStrap tie-downs

There are 4 straps included in this kit - 2 for use on the front of your bike and 2 for use on the rear. Each of the straps should be wrapped around a sturdy part of your bike. At the front, this area would typically be the base of the handlebars or the lower triple clamp. At the rear, you can connect the straps to accessible points on the frame. When you attach the tie-down straps to your truck or trailer, be sure to anchor them so that the bike is pulled down at all 4 corners. Your bike should be upright, not slanted. And the straps should be angled anywhere from 10 degrees to 60 degrees as they stretch from the bike to the anchor points.


Once the hooks are in place, tighten the webbing and activate the shocks. To tighten each strap, crank the ratchet mechanism until the webbing is taut. Tightening the straps will also compress the bike's suspension just enough to maintain tension when you hit bumps on the road. You'll want to compress the suspension about halfway. The tension should be even on both sides to prevent sway and bouncing. Be sure not to overtighten the strap. If your hand cannot fit between the shock and the safety strap, the strap is too tight.


Next, you'll want to activate the shocks. To do this, just tighten the straps a bit more, stretching the shocks until light is visible through the bolt holes in each shock. In warm climates, the shocks can stretch up to 2", while in subzero climates you may only get about 1/2" of give.


Once the straps have been tightened and the shocks have been activated, just make sure your motorcycle 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 also function in nearly any temperature, holding up to hot and cold weather conditions without losing elasticity or becoming unyielding or brittle over time.


Each ratchet strap also features a Grade 8 bolt and nylock nut. The rust-resistant, yellow zinc chromate coating on the buckle and the hooks holds up to the roughest weather conditions. The oversized, 3/8" hooks also feature a protective rubber coating to prevent damaging your bike, truck, or trailer while in transit.


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-downs are used improperly, overloaded, or unduly stretched, your bike will remain secured.

Very stronger that's very great qualit y! 683076



- 297-7RSBB-M

Quality of product is fantastic. My only issue with these is that the portion with the ratchet handle is so long, that the handle makes contact with bikes with large fairings while ratcheting (in my case, a BMW R1200RT). This makes it physically impossible to release tension by fully extending the handle. Ratchet side measures approximately 25.5 inches, with 2 inches of slack for the spring, when measured from the s-hook to the fully extended handle. 529783

Best tie downs I ever had. Never felt comfortable hauling my full size Ktm, my dirt bikes or Atv’s long distances until I got these. Build quality is outstanding and if you take care of them, they are probably the last tie downs you’ll ever buy. The rubber shock absorbers really work well, especially on dirt roads. For peace-of-mind when hauling, you need these. Spend the money once- all those cheap straps that last only a year or two add up. 655920

Review from a similar Shock-Absorbing Ratchet in Motorcycle Tie Downs


I would not pay extra money for this product again as I'm not sure what the expandable piece really does. I've used it for a motor cycle and afraid if I ratchet too tightly, I might break a part of the cycle. Also, the fixed part of the strap is too long. 673061


Comments
After using the straps for one year and on motorcycles, atv and utv I still feel there are not worth the price charged for this product. I am more convinced the rubber is a gimmic and not necessary if the user knows how to use ratcheting straps properly. I also quit using them on a small cycle trailer as the fixed part is too long.

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. 747152

I bought the shock straps because I believed it would be good insurance and they absolutely are. when I tie down my side by side on the trailer (3200lbs) it doesn't move when I get to my destination, like miles of wash board roads and ruts---great job e-trailer can't say enough good things about you guys--the way you explain your products and you've been so good to me on products I've bought. thanks george 551896

I finally got to use my new ShockStraps and let me tell you they work better than any other strap I have ever used to haul a race car with! I would definitely suggest to get a set of them! We drove 3 and half hours this weekend to a track and when we got there the straps were still tight. Best strap there is in my opinion!! 469000

Picked up product at our gate this morning. Probably delivered last night, Oct 25, as promised. Showed up just in time. They are excellent quality and have good hook and sling options to tie down anything we are going to trailer. We will be using them next week to trailer our folks Polaris Razor from Az White Mountains to Tucson area. Will also be using to trailer our compact backhoe/front end loader to White Mountains and friends around area. Been using chains and ratchet boomers and before that other ratchet cloth tie downs. All have to be checked and sometimes reset at every stop. 446451

  • Is There an Attachment to Carry Motorcycle on Curt Cargo Carrier
    There is no attachment available for a Curt cargo carrier in order to carry a motorcycle. You may be able to use something like the ShockStrap Ratchet Motorcycle Tie-Downs # 297-7RSBB-M. A much better option to carry a motorcycle is a different carrier, independent from the cargo carrier. I recommend the etrailer Motorcycle Carrier # e98873 (500 lb capacity) or MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 (400 lb capacity). I have added links to video reviews for you to...

  • Use of a Hitch Extender with a Motorcycle Carrier
    The hitch extender part # BX88265 will work but it will be close to exceeding the weight capacity of the hitch. You are correct, the tongue weight capacity of the extender is 1,000 lbs but you have to go by the capacity of the weakest component of your setup. It is a good idea to check the vehicle's towing capacity as well. The weakest component in your situation is the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on the vehicle so with the use of an extender your tongue weight is 337 lbs. All...

  • Can a BMW R1200RT Motorcycle be Carried on DK2 5x7 Utility Trailer Using a Wheel Chock and Straps
    Yes you could mount a chock such as # MT70075 to the deck of the K2 trailer # K2MMT5X7 and then use it to transport your BMW motorcycle. I do recommend getting a steel sheet up to 1/8 inch thick to use as a backing plate to disperse the force applied to the chock over a larger area. It would go on the under side of the deck. For tie downs ShockStrap has a set of 4 straps specifically for motorcycles, # 297-7RSBB-M. With the built in shocks these straps won't accidently slip off. Or...
