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 Ratcheting Tie-Down

shockstrap used on motorcycle

This one-of-a-kind ratchet strap from ShockStrap is great for nearly any application, from securing your cargo on your vehicle for your next weekend getaway, to strapping down your favorite toys on your trailer. The 7' length of this strap is perfect for securing a motorcycle, UTV, or snowmobile in your truck bed or trailer.


Unlike traditional straps, which don't stretch or contract, this tie-down is uniquely designed with a built-in shock absorber that allows the strap to maintain constant tension on your load as you travel. This is great for toys that have suspension systems that can compress and rebound when you travel rough terrain.


Built-In Shock

The webbing of a standard strap 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 gear as the load shifts.

But this ratchet strap features a built-in urethane shock that's designed to absorb impact and to allow give. This ensures that the tie-down stays taut and won't loosen overtime. The built-in shock helps 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. If you use this to tie down a motorcycle, for example, the constant compressing and rebounding of the 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 shock absorbs these jolts so that the webbing of the tie-down stays put instead of wearing over the edges of your equipment.


Easy-to-Use Ratchet

Close-up of open ShockStrap ratchet

This tie-down features a commercial-grade, heavy duty ratchet. 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 Ratchet Strap

To use the ShockStrap ratcheting tie-down strap, first attach one of the durable S-hooks to a desired anchor point. Then stretch the strap over your cargo and secure the other hook to a point on the opposite side of your truck or trailer. Each hook has a wide opening, making it hassle-free to maneuver and attach the hooks to your anchor points. And the retention clips on the hooks ensure that the hooks stay in place on the anchors while you're loading, as well as while you're traveling.


Soft loops, which are on both sides of the strap, can be used to tie down a piece of equipment that may otherwise be difficult to secure. So instead of using the hooks, which may scratch or scuff your toys and might be difficult to run through or around other cargo, you can easily cinch the tie-down around your gear and then secure the tie-down to your anchor points as usual.


Once the hooks are in place, tighten the webbing around the cargo and activate the shock. To tighten the strap, crank the ratchet mechanism until the webbing is taut around your load. Be sure not to overtighten the strap. If your hand cannot fit between the shock and the safety strap, the strap is too tight.


To activate the shock, tighten the strap a bit more, stretching the shock until light is visible through the bolt holes in the shock. In warm climates, the shock can stretch up to 2", while in subzero climates you may only get about 1/2" of give.


Finally, after tightening the webbing and stretching the shock, make sure your cargo is completely secure and then tie off any extra slack.


Strong, Durable Construction

The sturdy, UV-resistant polyester webbing of this tie-down strap 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 can function in nearly any temperature, holding up to hot and cold weather conditions without losing elasticity or becoming unyielding or brittle over time.


The rust-resistant, yellow zinc chromate coating on the ratchet and hardware holds up to the varying weather conditions.


A safety strap is also built into this tie-down to provide peace of mind should something happen to the shock. This safety strap ensures that if the tie-down is used improperly, overloaded, or unduly stretched, your cargo will remain secured.

Video Transcript for ShockStrap Tie-Down Straps Manufacturer Demo

Fred: Hi, this is Fred and Tris for the Shockstrap. Today we're going to do a pull off and show you exactly how we work compared to our competition. And again, Shockstrap itself, once you've stretched it and engaged it, that bottom hook doesn't come loose as you'll see shortly. And one of the things that we compare ourselves to our competition, a lot of folks like to see the size of the hooks. As you can see, most big box stores, this is what you get, and ours obviously is oversized. That comes into play when you've got a big quad, a side by side or even motorcycle handlebars.

The little hooks just don't typically go around them. So what we did on our machine, so that we literally could show you a direct comparison side by side, we had some little half inch pipe welded on here just to make it blatantly obvious how it works. We've got it tight, and the first thing we're going to do, and then we'll talk about a few other things, but Tris, let's just go ahead and act like we're hitting a washboard road, it's honestly a speed bump it could happen, and see what happens. You ready That . I know that looks too easy. Right there with you folks, but if you knew how tight this was.Tris: There we go.Fred: Literally, that is a guy thing where you're ...

we've got this tight on purpose. Actually, if you look at ours you're going to see a gap here, we hardly have ours stretched at all, but we really wanted to show you hitting the bumps and what happens. I don't want to belabor the point, most of you know, if you've had straps that they can come loose or come off. And again, most of you know, that if you have our straps, it's got a two year warranty, but we have customers out to 10 years on them now. And, once you engage them, that hook doesn't come loose.

As a matter of fact, Tris has one from 2006, tell them about it Tris.Tris: Had an individual come into our booth at a trade show and say, "I think you guys would be interested in this, bought this in 2006 and when I use it on my snow machines and on my quads, when I'm not using it I throw it in the back of the pickup, so in the winter it's buried in the snow, and in the summer the suns beating down on it", he says. So, here's an example of one that's seven years old and now it still works. We put it on the machine and it does everything that a brand new one will do.Fred: It is amazing, he gave us a pair of those, in fact we gave him two new ones to trade him. He didn't even want to trade those out at first. He literally was saying, "But they still work".

We had to say, "Buddy, you're not going to get five more years out of them, so please let us have them", real story. In fact, I had one recently a lady named Diane from California, her husbands a long-haul trucker, and she does travel with him and he's always trying to teach her how to tie knots and said, "Fred, I'm not a knot tier, I will never be a knot tier, I use your straps I just set them, they work, we go down the road". Recently she say, "I needed to buy more, in fact he's the one that asked me to buy more". I quizzed her a little further, I said, "But I thought he was a rope guy". She goes, "You know what, he wants three 19 footers for himself, so I think you just won him over". It's always nice to have those stories, and Tris was in Miami recently at another dealer and this is another funny story.Tris: I walked into this shop, it was a motorcycle and four-wheeler shop and I asked the owner of the shop if he had time to watch a video and I had to Shockstraps in my hand. And he saw what I had and he says, "I don't need to watch any video" and he says, "How many cases of those straps do you have with you, I've been looking for them and I can't find them".Fred: He has been a dealer years ago and we got him back very quickly. So, the other thing that I didn't mention as I was showing you the competition, if you ever get the chance when you're going to go buy straps, look at our packaging and look at theirs. If you flip theirs over on the back, it typically says right on there in black and white on the bullets, every 30 to 50 miles pull over and adjust the tension on the strap. That's true, there is no doubt, they do come loose, or quite frankly they may be off. You won't see that on ours folks. That bottom hook never comes off. Tris, let's just pull this again just to show people. You may see it flex, as you can see, obviously the Shockstrap working, but that bottom hook just stays tight doing exactly what it's meant to do. There's always tension on that bottom hook. So, we told you about real customers. We certainly told you we have a two year warranty, we haven't mention that it's 6 foot, 10 foot, and 19 foot, and black and red. It's all in the stretch, Shockstrap. Thank you.

by:

The etrailer team set up my account for no sales tax (we are a school) quick and easy. Once I placed my order, it arrived just as quick. I recommend etrailer very highly.



by:

My use was to tie down my side by side on a trailer and they worked great.



by:



by:

These tie down straps are the best! Trailered my Harley long distances with no issues. Feel very secure using these. 100% recommend!



by:

Way better than standard tie downs. Holds better if you tighten enough as compared to standard tie down and does not slack up



by:

The product performed as it was advertised. The straps were well constructed and it was obvious a great deal of thought went into the design. I shoot sporting clay targets and haul a John Deere Gator 825 XUV to events, as a means of transportation around the course. Roads traveling to and from events, often, are gravel or dirt. This can and does create rough road surfaces to pull trailers and XUVs on. I used the Shock Straps this past week and watched to Gator as I drove on some rough terrain. The Gator did not move or sway during the trip. When I got to my destination, the straps were as tight as when I left for the trip. There was absolutely no play in the straps. Previously, I was always adjusting the straps and the XUV would rock and bounce on rough terrain. No any more.



by:

These are just what I was looking for and more. Was looking for motorcycle tie-down that wrapped around handlebars. The shock absorber is a bonus.



by:

Have not used them yet, but these straps are heavy duty and well made for motorcycle use. They fit the bill nicely!



by:

I use these to tie down Honda Rancher ATVs, I took out the rubber shock as it's useless(too stiff) for the weight of the ATV and provides no shock motion. The strap itself is unbeatable. Heavy duty, with the loop and latching hook that make this strap a super safe option. The strap and hook WILL NOT come off going down a rough road, due to the safety mechanisms. Well worth the price if you want long lasting AND safety as peace of mind.



by:

Best strap I have had for timing down my Polaris Ranger!



by:

I ordered these to strap down an ATV for several hour highway trips during hunting season. They work great and my atv does not bounce around and loosen the straps like traditional ratchet straps do. I've recommended to several friends who have also ordered and have the same success. Great product!



by:

Great straps. This is my second set. I gave the first set to my brother as a gift. I bought me a set. We haul everything from UTV’s, 4-wheelers as well as tractors and skid steers. Shock Straps are the best straps I have ever used. They are strong and never come loose.



by:

I should have bought the straps that bolt to the trailer.
These work but not much need for the shock feature or the loops at the end of the strap.



by:

This review is more of etrailer not a product. Ordered these tiedowns for a birthday gift. Website indicated delivery in 4 to 5 days. They didn’t even ship for nearly a week, birthday came and went its need 12 days since ordering and still have not received the item. If you really want these tiedowns, find them somewhere else other than etrailer.



by:

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.



by:

I love the Shock straps. After using them for a year they are still working great. I would recommend to anyone.



by:

Excellent product. The heat does cause the rubber coating on the hooks if they're tied down for any length of time. Sometimes the locking mechanism gets stuck in an in-between position and it's difficult to unlock; however, these are still the best straps I've ever had and I've had zero load shifting problems or broken straps. I will definitely buy a second set.



by:

These straps are great. The are strong and allow for some movement of the motorcycles without have the straps break or come loose. The Harley was transported to Las Vegas and back, 2500 miles with no issues.



by:

They look nice and heavy and made of good quality materials reason for 4 stars I haven’t used them yet



by:

WELL MADE HEAVY DUTY, WISH THEY HAD THE CARRY BAG



by:

Easy to assemble, easy to use. I lug around my 450SXF on my 2005 Prius. Works great.



by:

exactly as advertised



by:

I was looking for tie down straps to haul my ATV as well as my garden tractor. The standard straps were okay but did seem to loosen up after traveling for awhile. So I took a chance on these ones based on the details one etrailer as well as reviews. I have not been disappointed. They worked as described and do not loosen in transit. I would definitely purchase again.



by:

Knowledgeable staff helped me make the right decision



by:

Very well thought out product. Works well on the front of my BMW K1600GTL. Allows some movement, to minimize road shock, without allowing the bike to loosen up, especially as the Duolever front does not compress the fork spring when strapped down.
