Features:

  • Used for securing a vehicle to the bed of a truck or trailer

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.

Video Transcript for Erickson Car Tie down Kit Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit. This kit includes a 2 x 7 ratchet strap, part number 08504-05. It offers twisted flat hooks and also has an axle strap which makes it very easy to secure your vehicle, UTV or ATV to a trailer or bed of a truck. As you can see the ratchet strap is made of very heavy-duty construction. This strap itself has extremely heavy stitching on it. It's going to help hold up over time. This gives our strap a 10,000 break capacity and a safe working load limit of 3,300 pounds. The twisted flat hooks help to keep the strap straight and flat and the latches will help hold them on to our connection point while you're hooking up your other strap. As you can see today we're going to be securing our UTV.

These things are getting really big lately; they really need good sturdy tie downs to hold them onto a trailer. These can also be used to secure cars and trucks with their 10,000 pound break limit and their 3,300 pound safe working load limit. To secure our UTV we'll bring the axle strap around our connection point and hook in our twisted flat hook. We'll now take the other end of our strap, we're going to bring it through the middle and back out the top. Make our second connection point on our trailer, pull out the slack and then ratchet it down. By pulling the lever in the middle and moving our handle all the way down, it's actually going to lock it in the down position making it safe to travel. If we want to we can secure our excess strap underneath this handle before we lock it down to hold it in place.

Now all we've got left to do is secure our other side and we can get heading down the road. That will complete today's look at the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit, part number 08504-05, featuring the ratchet strap part number 08504 and the axle strap part number 58505. .

Just what I wanted. After trailering for 30 years, I needed some new tie downs and these are just what the doctor ordered. Perfect. Heavy duty, well made, strong and top quality. A good value. 468274

Great straps. I use the on my ‘93 Land Cruiser when we tow it to Moab and my ‘72 GMC when we tow it to long-distance shows. We could drive them both to their destinations (and have) but our new tow vehicle is much more comfortable for a 2,500-mile trip. ;-) 504283

Ask the Experts about this Erickson Car Tie Down Straps

  • How Many Straps Does Car Tie-Down Kit Come With?
    The Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit - Twisted Flat Hooks and Axle Strap w/ Ratchet # 08504-05 comes with one tie-down strap and one axle strap.

  • Recommended Straps to Transport 3,000 lbs Roller on a Trailer
    For your 3,000 lbs roller, I recommend using the Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit - Twisted Flat Hooks and Axle Strap w/ Ratchet # 08504-05, provided you have the necessary attachment points. This kit has a working load limit (WLL) of 3,300 lbs so it would be enough for your roller. This kit comes with an axle strap, but if you needed additional axle straps for tie-downs, you could use the Erickson Axle Strap with D-Rings # 88509. If you do not have good tie-down points, another option would...

  • Tie Downs Needed to Secure CJ3A Willys Jeep to Flat Bed Trailer
    The Erickson Tie Down Kit you mentioned, part # 08504-05 would work great for you as long as the hook on the end of the strap can secure to the tie downs you mentioned. You would need four of the straps, one to secure each corner of the vehicle. Due to the 3300 lb safe working load limit (WLL) of each strap, you will have more than enough capacity to secure your Willys to the trailer. The 13,200 lbs of capacity will be exactly what you need on those rough roads.

  • Tie Down Strap Recommendations for an Infinity GNW 500 Car Hauler
    Since you never know what you might need to put on your car hauler I recommend going with something that has a high capacity such as the set of 4 Bulldog axle tie down straps # BDW20230. They are rated for 3,335 pounds working load and 10,000 pound break strength. It is important though to go by the working load limit for any strap. I have included a link to a video review of these straps for you.

  • Recommendation for Wheel Tie Downs to Secure Jeep Rubicon to Car Hauler
    To secure your Jeep to the metal deck of your car hauler, I recommend taking a look at the Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit # 08504-05. These straps feature twisted flat hooks that will help to keep the strap straight and flat along with axle straps to help secure the vehicle into place. They have a safe working load limit of 3,300 pounds and a maximum load of 10,000 pounds. I recommend using these with E-Tracks like the 4 Foot # EM19147, which can be bolted to the metal deck of your trailer....

  • Car Tie Down Ratchet Straps for Hauling Vintage Model T and Model A on 23 Foot Car Hauler
    I looked over the various tie down options, and wasn't able to find anything that met all the parameters you mentioned. The Erickson # 08504-05 you mentioned comes the closest, but we don't have anything that has a longer strap. If you can live with S hooks, you could use the # 58505 axle strap along with the 2 x 27 10K ratchet strap, part # EM69627. You can always shorten the strap if need be. Fulton offers a 20 foot by 2 inch winch strap with a 10K capacity, part # FWS20HD0200.

  • What Cargo Tie-Down Straps for Trailer Hauling a 1976 CJ5 with Off Road Tires
    Based on my research, the weight for a 1976 CJ5 can vary between 3500 and 4000 lbs depending on whether it has a hard top and on its particular engine and transmission. Based on this the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit, part # 08504-05, is a very good choice but is not by itself sufficient to secure the Jeep for trailer transport. This Erickson kit has a working load limit (WLL) of 3300 lbs, which is below the vehicle weight. I suggest you use this kit in conjunction with wheel nets,...

  • Availability of Erickson Car Tie-Down Straps With Ratchet
    We do have a car tie-down kit from Erickson that is very similar to the one you referenced, though the Erickson Tie-Down with the Multiplier Ratchet and Swivel Hook is no longer available. Instead, I recommend the Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit with Ratchet # 08504-05, which like the kit you mentioned, is 7 feet long, has 2 inch wide axle straps and a 10,000 lb break strength. Each also has a 3,300 lb safe working load limit which will affect how many straps you need. For example if the car...

  • Car Tie Down Straps for Towing 2006 Chevy Equinox on a Flat Bed Trailer
    The heaviest model 2006 Chevy Equinox weighs just under 4,000 pounds, so if you use at least four of the Erikson Car Tie-Down Straps, # 08504-05, you should be fine. The straps have a maximum capacity of 10,000 pounds and a safe working load limit of about 3,300 pounds. More contact points is better than less, so if the vehicle and trailer allow, I would use 4 straps to spread the load and keep the car steady on the trailer. You can order these online by following the link below, or...

  • How Does the Car Tie Down Kit # 08504-05 Work
    The Car Tie Down Kit # 08504-05 actually secures the axle of the vehicle, not the tire. The short strap with the loops on each end goes around the axle. The hook on the long strap goes through the 2 loops. And the other end of the long strap goes through the ratchet mechanism. And the hook on the other end of the ratchet part would attach to your anchor point. You would only need one set provided the vehicle is within the 10K capacity/3,300 pound working load limit of this system. For...

  • Are Car Tie Down Kit 08504-05 Straps Long Enough for 8.5 Foot Wide Trailer and 109 Inch Wheelbase
    The longer strap included with car tie down kit # 08504-05 is 7 feet long. So depending on the width of your enclosed trailer and where the attachment points are it is very possible that 7 feet will be long enough. The 7-foot long version is the longest we have available. Assuming that you have a attachment points closer to the rear as well as at the front then the 109 inch wheelbase should not be a problem.

  • Tire Tie Downs for E-Track in an Enclosed Trailer for a Sports Car
    For your trailer the tracks have openings that go front to back. To secure vehicle tires you would need the openings to run left to right like # E19135. Then you could use # 77314 which has e-track fittings. But we can make it work by using a couple of tie downs, # E59143, and ratchet straps such as # EM34416. If a vehicle has smaller or larger tires you would just place the tie downs in the appropriate spots on the tracks. Vehicles that are wider or narrower may still work on the same...

  • Recommended Tow Straps for Car Hauler Trailer
    Since the cost of four of the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit # 08504-05 is close to that of the Bulldog 4-piece set, I would go for the Bulldog kit # BDW20230. For the couple of extra dollars you get not only 10-foot straps rather than 7-footers, but you also get the carry bag to keep everything in order.

  • Recommended Tie-Down Straps for Transporting TrailBlazer and Traverse on Car Hauler Trailer
    The Erickson Ratchet Tie-Down Strap with Web Clamp and Snap Hooks, part # EM58501 that you referenced, is suitable for your application to secure a vehicle to your flat car hauler trailer by its tow hooks, but we also offer shorter straps like their 7-foot Car Tie Down # 08504 which also has hooks on both ends. To use either of these you'll need tie-down hooks on the deck of the trailer. If you need D-Ring tie downs you can use # LRB1 from Brophy. If you prefer you can use 4 axle straps...

    When it comes to installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller, # 90195, in your 2007 Jeep Liberty, you will need to do a little bit of hardwiring even though it is equipped with the tow package. You'll first want to start out by locating a light blue wire that is taped to the wiring harness behind the driver's kick panel. This is where you will connect the blue wire on the brake controller. Next, the white wire on the controller is the ground and will need to go to the...

  • Can 2007 Dodge Caravan with Curt Hitch # C12289 Tow a Car Trailer and Sportscar Weighing 1700-lbs
    According to my research the 2007 Dodge Caravan with Stow-N-Go seats has varying towing capacities depending on the version. The SXT with 3.8L V6 engine has a maximum tow rating of 3800-lbs while the C/V and SE versions with the 3.3L engine have a maximum tow rating of 2000-lbs. The Curt 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch you referenced, part # C12289, itself has a towing capacity of 3500-lbs. We also offer a 2-inch hitch from Curt, part # 13389, which has the same towing capacity.

The # BP05 that you referenced is in the # RR5K kit so it does not need to be ordered separately. I have attached a brief video that takes you step by step through the installation process.

    The Erickson Adjustable Ratcheting Wheel Net with Hooks # EM58522 can be attached to your trailer's stake pockets (presuming they offer enough strength for securing the weight of the car loaded on the trailer) but I still recommend installing a deck-mounted D-ring like Brophy's # RR5K. Their ideal placement will depend on your tire size. Once you have the nets you'll easily tell where to place the D-rings. This assembly offers a 5000-lb load rating and features an anti-corrosive zinc...

A 245/75R16 tire has an overall diameter of about 30-1/2-inches and a width of about 9-1/2-inches. Wheel nets we offer top out at the 29-inch size. I called both Erickson and Kinedyne, both makers of wheel net products, and neither offers a wheel net in the size you need for the 245/75R16 size tires. We do carry Erickson # EM58522 which is an adjustable ratcheting strap with hooks...

  • Using Brophy Recessed D-Rings # RR5K to Secure Jeep to Flat Bed Trailer
    Each of the # RR5K D-Ring Tie-Downs has a 5000 lb capacity. Although two of the rings would have plenty of capacity for your Jeep, I would recommend using four of them, one near each corner. When you are securing a vehicle to a trailer, overkill is never bad. To secure your Jeep to the rings, I would recommend the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit, part # 08504-05 which includes an axle strap and ratchet strap. You would need four of them.

I recommend using the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM09160. These will fit on your E-Tracks and can fit around your 30" tires. I also recommend Erickson Axle Straps with D-Rings # 08504-05 for extra support. These straps loop around the axle and then secures to the bed of your trailer.

  • Recommended D-Ring Tie Downs and Straps to Secure 1998 Jeep TJ to Trailer
    They will be more than strong enough for your needs. Each of the Bropy # RR5K D-Rings has a 5,000 lb capacity but has a WLL (safe working load limit) of about 1/3 of that figure, which is just under 1700 lbs. Since you're using 4 of the D -Rings, you'll have a total safe working load limit of almost 7,000 lbs, which should be plenty strong enough to hold your Jeep firmly in place. I don't know what you were thinking of doing for straps, but if you don't already have a solution in mind,...
