BoatBuckle's second-generation transom tie-down straps bolt to the rear crossmembers of your trailer and simplify the securing and unloading of your boat. They are designed to keep constant tension on the strap and require minimal ratcheting to secure your load. Instead of always having to find and store tie-down straps that hook to the tie-down anchors on the back of your boat, BoatBuckle's straps are always right where you need them. Just pull up on the hook and strap, attach the hook to the transom, and then operate the ratchet several times. No more dealing with extra webbing or looking for the tie-down strap. And when unloading, simply push the release button on the ratchet, free the hook from the transom anchor and let the strap retract back down into the ratchet.


Installation

These straps come with the mounting hardware that you'll need to install them. It is recommended that you use anti-seize (LT37616 - sold separately) to ensure that the nuts are properly tightened down over the bolts. You can mount the ratchets with the included bolts directly to the trailer frame or crossmember. If you need to angle the ratchet strap or move it a little farther off the frame, a universal mounting kit (IMF14254 - sold separately) is available.


Note: Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a pair of gunwale tie-downs. All straps and cables should be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). To determine the maximum load, or break strength, of the strap, simply multiply the WLL by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Video Transcript for BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps - Trailer - IMF08893 Review

Today we're going to review part number IMF08893. These are the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs. Has a 2500 pound maximum load strength and they come as a quantity of 2. Now these heavy duty ratchet straps will easily secure your boat's transom to your trailer. You bolt these to the rear cross members of your trailer, and this will simplify the securing and unloading of your boat. They are designed to keep constant tension on the strap, and require minimal ratcheting to secure your load.

You can tighten them down quickly here with the Suregrip rubber coated handle, it's easy to grip and control with one hand. Down here at the bottom you can see it's a dual, one on each side, dual release lever, and the self-retracting design, as you can see just like that with it into release mode. This will allow for easy rapid loading and unloading. Basically the unused portion of the strap will retract into the housing, so it gives you minimal ratcheting and convenient storage. If you notice on the end of these, they have a nice vinyl coated steel s hook, helps protect your boat's paint finish. This does permanently mount to your trailer with the included 1 bolt mounting hardware, which is all included.

Basically, if you can see the back here, there's a hole right here that you can run this bolt through to attach it. Now if you'll notice above the hole, there's also like a keyhole slot, and that pretty much can be used if there's already a bolt on your trailer. You might be able to just put it in here and slide it down to lock it into place. If not, you can use the bolt here and bolt it to the trailer itself. These are a durable construction, they offer long-lasting performance. Has a nice corrosion-resistant steel body on the inside here.

The polyester webbing is seat belt quality, very strong webbing. Has a nice sturdy plastic housing and a stainless steel spring, so it all holds up very well. On the strap itself, the dimension is 2 inches wide and if you can pull it out, it's 43 inches long. The bolts themselves are 3/8 inch diameter and about 2 inches long. Again, I mentioned the maximum load strength on this, which is the breaking strength, it's 2500 pounds each one, but you do have to remember that that's the breaking strength.

What you'll want to be aware of is the working load limit, and the safe working load limit on each one is 833 pounds. Basically the working load limit is 1/3 of what the load strength, or breaking strength, is. We do recommend all straps and cables should be chosen according to that safe working load limit. Again, this part includes the 2 ratchets and the mounting bolts. Just want to show you here real quickly an operation of it. You see the dual release lever, I've got it pushed down and it stays in the down position, that'll allow the belt to retract, and then all you have to do is once you, let's try to extend it out here, I don't have anything to hook it to but just to hold it out some, there's a lever right down here that if you pull up on, and then grab this, and once you move it you can see it moves the dual release levers out of their position, and that locks it into place. Then all you need to do is just by squeezing this lower level with the lever right there, you can ratchet it and tighten it to where you want. Then once it's where it's at, it'll hold it into place just like that. Then if you go to release it, again, see these dual release levers You can watch as I push down on it, you can see that the strap will retract. Basically, when you install this, just pull up on the hook, just like that, pull up on it, attach the hook to the transom of your boat, and then ratchet it like I showed you and that'll tighten it up. Then when you're unloading, just push down on this release button, pull off the, free the hook from that transom, and let it retract back into it. Very simple operation. That should do it for the review on part number IMF08893. These are the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs with the 2500 pound maximum load strength. .

Love the retractable tie downs. Just put them on today. The only problem is that the bolts were too short. My trailer has a 2" square tube frame to mount the tie downs on. I had to go buy 3" bolts to put them on but that was no problem. 289026

I received the product quickly and installed it the same day. I did not have a problem with the bolts that were supplied. The buckles appear to be well built. Looking forward to using them next week 202786

I purchased these tie downs to replace a pair of 11 year old BoatBuckles that had some issues with the springs popping off. The new ones have a completely re-designed spring attachment assembly which solved the problem. The new design is also so much smoother and easier to use. I would highly recommend this product for your boat trailer. 144715

I found the BoatBuckle G2 retractable Transom Tie-Downs an awesome addition to my boating experience. A pleasure to use. However, I had a problem with the bolts they include in the package. They were longer than necessary and , with the amount of torque needed to tighten the lock nut, ended up cross threaded. It was so tightly cross threaded, I had to cut the bolt off. I called tech support and they sent me alternative set of hardware and it worked like a charm. Their product support is excellent! The only product issue I had was, when you read the instructions, it indicated you should check the tie downs after 3 miles, and something like every 20 miles after that. I have only used them 3 or 4 times, and on one occasion, I found that the normal bouncing of the trailer, had allowed one of them to come loose. Easy enough to tighten, but you will need to check them from time to time. If they ever fix that issue, I would give it the highest rating. 51465

Just got the BoatBuckles and they seem to be heavy duty. They will let me mount my tie downs away from my transducers on my boat. The upgraded shipping was a nice "hello" touch. I will use them again for other accessories I will need soon. 560451

I purchased this product after losing a strap for the second time. I love these! I have a 21 foot Sea Ray Cruiser. These straps work as described and are well built with enough strength that I don't worry about my boat staying where it should. I also bought the mounting brackets. I was concerned about their strength but they seem to be plenty strong. Installation was easy. Just make sure to use lock washers or nuts. Great product! 559390

Where have you been with all my boats over the years? I no longer have to worry about where to put my straps after we launch the boat. The retractable strap is quick-out of the way- don't have to scrounge getting the straps anymore. The bolts are heavier enough to hold my 26' cutty cabin. Best investment ever 583237

Great product. I installed them on my Ranger Boat trailer. Makes loading and unloading much easier and faster. When using crowded boat ramps it is courteous to get in or out as quickly as possible. These ratcheting tie-downs are simple and fast. They are very well made so you can tow safely and have the confidence that whatever you are towing is secure. 582273

After years of using conventional straps for my Bass Tracker, I decided to try these. They hold tight with just a couple of clicks and do not loosen at all. At the ramp it's one less thing to hassle with, just pop them loose and forget about them until it's time to strap down. Highly recommend. 503826

Ask the Experts about this BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps
Do you have a question about this Tie Down Strap?


  • How to Choose the Correct Tie-Down for a Boat and Trailer
  • When choosing tie-down straps like the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Tie-Down Strap, # IMF14220, you will want to keep a few things in mind. Boat tie-downs are designed for normal highway driving. The purpose of most boat tie-downs is to strap the lightest object to the heaviest object, meaning you will want to choose a tie-down with a break strength that exceeds the weight of the lightest object. For example, if your boat weighs 4,000 lbs and your trailer weighs 2,000 lbs, you will want...

  • Recommended Rear Tie-Downs for 24 Foot Pontoon Boat
  • To secure the stern of your 24 foot pontoon boat, I recommend the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893. These heavy-duty ratchet straps are easy to hookup and will retract automatically. Their 2,500 pound maximum load (break strength) is more than enough for your 3,000 pound boat and 1,100 pound trailer. The straps themselves measure 43 inches long and 2 inches wide. Two transom straps are included. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you...

  • Stainless Steel Transom Strap Recommendation for Boat Trailer
  • For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead. Part # IMF14256, uses a stainless steel body that resists rust and corrosion. The S-hooks are a vinyl-coated steel like the hooks on the system you referenced, for protection of the boat finish. These do come with the mounting hardware. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out.

  • Difference Between BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratchet Straps # IMF08893 and # IMF14220
  • That's exactly correct. Both G2 ratchet straps are identical with identical mounting hardware. The # IMF08893 includes a pair of straps for use on the boat's transom, and the # IMF14220 includes one strap for use at the bow. To see product demonstration videos, click the provided links.

  • Boat Transom Tie Down Straps for 1,000 Pound Load
  • The BoatBuckle Mini G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF106877 are rated for 1,400 pounds break strength and 466 pounds working load limit. I recommend going with a higher capacity set such as # IMF08893 rated for 2,500 pounds break and 833 pounds working load limit per strap. Even # IMF14256 would be a better option at 1500 pounds break and 500 pounds working load limit.

  • Best Location for Transom Tie Down on Boat Trailer with Hard to Access Transom Support Beam
  • You could bolt the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 to the aluminum trailer frame provided you used aluminum mounting hardware instead of steel. The only other way, like you said, would be to add an extension piece to make it easier to reach the tie down. There isn't a specific extension for this purpose so you would need to fabricate one using materials from a home improvement store. If you add an extension you will want to be careful not to over-tighten...

  • Recommended Transom Tie-Downs For 4,500 Lb Boat
  • I spoke with my contact at BoatBuckle about the weight capacity of their tie-down straps. They told me that the break strength is what they use when determining the best tie-downs for a boat to use. For your 4,500 lb boat I recommend the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs, part # IMF08893. These each have a break strength of 2,500 lbs so that gives you a total of 5,000 lbs. These are ratcheting straps that measure 2 inches wide by 43 inches long. These come with...

  • What is the Shape of the Mounting Hole For BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratchet Straps
  • I have included a picture of the back of what the Boat Buckle G2 straps, # IMF08893, look like. Mounting hardware (2 bolts, nuts, and washers) are included. You can also get optional mounting brackets, # IMF14254, if you need to move the straps off the frame or around obstacles.

  • Transom Strap Recommendation for a 2,500 lb Boat
  • You would want the Transom straps part # IMF08893 as it has a break strength of 2,500 lbs and a WLL of 833 lbs. Think of the breaking strength as the strength the strap has when in an emergency situation and the WLL as the amount of weight it can handle continuously. Since the strap wouldn't be supporting the full weight of your boat at all times the # IMF08893 would work well for yours that weighs 2,500 lbs.

  • Transom Tie-Downs For 5,000-LB Boat
  • All of the ratcheting tie-downs we offer, have the retracting feature. The highest rated transom tie-downs we offer are the BoatBuckle G2, part # IMF08893. The maximum break strength for these straps is 2,500-lbs each. The safe working load limit though is 833 pounds each.

  • Recommended Boat Tie-Down Straps for 2,000 lb Trailer and 8,700 lb Boat
  • When choosing tie-downs for your 8,700 lb boat and 2,000 lb trailer, the most important thing is to get tie-downs that have a break strength which exceeds the 2,000 lb weight of your trailer. Doing so will keep your boat on your trailer when you run over the inevitable potholes when driving to your fishing destination. I recommend checking out the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Bow Tie-Down Strap # IMF14220, Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 or # IMF14208 and Gunwale Tie-Down...

  • Best Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps for a Boat Trailer
  • In order to secure your 16' fishing boat to the trailer, I recommend using the BoatBuckle G2 Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps part # IMF14221. These straps have a vinyl-coated hook that is designed to attach atop the gunwale of your boat. They have a ratcheting mechanism which will cut down time and slack. They are 38" long and have a 833 lb safe load limit. If you already have anchor points on the boat then you can use the BoatBuckle G2 Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps part # IMF08893...

  • What is the Overall Width of BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893. The overall width at the widest point is 4-5/8 inches. The mounting hole is right in the center so from either edge to the center of the mounting hole it is 2-5/16 inches.

  • Differences Between Boatbuckle Cargo Buckles # IMF08893 and # IMF14256
  • The difference is the metal that the two straps are made of. The more expensive # IMF14256 is made of stainless steel which offers superior corrosion resistance whereas the part # IMF08893 is made of non-stainless steel and that is why it costs less.

In your application on your 3800-lb Bayliner outboard this is sufficient for the bow so long as you use other tie-downs on the remaining portions of the boat, the gunwales and transom, to secure those areas.

These permanently mount to your trailer with 1 bolt, mounting hardware is included. The buckles are sewn to the strap so there wouldn't be a way to reverse the direction the hooks face.

  • Can BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 Be Used with 5K Boat
  • The maximum break strength for each of the straps included with BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 is 2,500 pounds. So together that would be 5,000 pounds. The safe working load limit though is 833 pounds each. These are currently the highest rated transom tie downs that we carry. Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a pair of gunwale tie-downs. Adding in those you should be fine provided that the combined safe working load...

  • Can the BoatBuckle Transom Ratchet Straps Handle Being Submerged in Water
  • Yes, the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 are designed to work on boat trailer that get submerged under water so they would do just fine being repeatedly submerged. For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead. Since they are at the back of the trailer they wouldn't bear the brunt of debris or water on the highway so that wouldn't...

  • How To Choose the Correct BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Downs
  • In order to secure your 1994 Regal Ventrua 6.8 with the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps you will need to use one tie down at the bow and two tie downs at the transom. For this you will need both part # IMF14220 and part # IMF08893. This will give you a break strength rating of 7,500 lbs (2,500 lbs per tie down) therefore will be sufficient. We also have the Mounting Brackets part # IMF14254 if the tie down points on the trailer are not where you need them to be....

  • Choosing BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps
  • For your 1400-lb boat/motor I suggest you play it safe and use the 2-inch Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893. These have enough capacity plus a nice safety margin. With items like tie down straps you always want to use them within their WLL, or working load limit. This is their actual real-world capacity, as compared to their breaking strength which is 3 times the WLL. The idea is to choose a tie down that will never be used near its break strength. None of us ever wants to be near...

  • Length of BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Transom Tie-Down # IMF17631
  • The BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF17631 referenced in your question feature an overall length of 2 feet, which is measured from the inside of one hook to the inside of the other. There may be an inch or so tolerance but if you are needing any more than 2 feet your best option will really be with the 4 foot Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF17632 that you also mentioned. These straps do feature a hook and loop patch that is designed to secure and collect any excess...

  • Selecting Replacement Tie-Down Straps for Waverunner Trailer
  • Wider tie-down straps are fine for your PWC application, even if they are replacing 1-inch-wide straps. The key is that you do not exceed the straps' WLL, their Working Load Limit. WLL is the most load you want to put on the straps; it is 1/3 of their break strength. Staying within the 833-lb WLL of the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 will ensure a long working lifespan.

  • Transom Tie-Down Straps for Boat That Weighs 2,500 lbs
  • For your 2,500 lb boat I recommend using BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893 which each have a break strength of 2,500 lbs and will work since they are not going to be handling the full load of your boat at all times. These are 2" wide x 43" long straps so be sure that's the correct length for your boat and trailer; for a longer length you can use the 6' BoatBuckle Transom Tie-Downs # IMF14208. You will also need guanwale tie-down straps and I recommend...

  • Recommended BoatBuckle Tie-Downs for Replacing Damaged BoatBuckles on a Shoreliner Boat Trailer
  • It sounds like the previous owner had the BoatBuckle G2 2 inch wide x 43 inches long Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 (833lbs), the stainless steel BoatBuckle 2 inch wide x 43 inches long tie-downs (500lbs) # IMF14256, or the mini G2 tie-downs # IMF106877 1 inch wide x 6 foot long (466lbs). I wish there was a way to replace the strap but the best thing for you to do is to replace the units. I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.
