Securing large, heavy cargo is quick and hassle-free with these ratcheting tie-downs that permanently bolt onto your trailer. Heavy-duty straps have a quick-release, self-retracting design for super-simple loading and unloading. 3,500 lbs Max load.
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.
CargoBuckle's third-generation tie-down straps bolt to your trailer and simplify the securing and unloading of your cargo. They have a self-retracting design, so there is constant tension on the strap and minimal ratcheting is required to secure your load. Dual safety locks keep the ratchet arm in the open or closed position, so the ratchet will not accidentally loosen or tighten up.
Instead of always having to find and store tie-down straps that hook to the anchor points on your trailer, you'll always find CargoBuckle straps right where you need them. Just pull up on the hook and strap, attach the hook to your cargo, and then operate the ratchet a few times. No more searching for a tie-down strap or dealing with extra webbing that flaps in the wind. And when you're ready to unload, simply push the release lever on the ratchet, free the hook from your cargo, and let the strap retract back down into the ratchet housing.
Using the included hardware, you can permanently mount the 2" wide ratchet straps to any flat surface. Or you can incorporate various adapters (sold separately) to use the tie-downs as either standard straps with S-hooks or as E-track straps. Angled brackets (sold separately) let you mount the straps at a 45-degree angle so that they are easier to access.

Today we're going to review part number IMF18800. These are the CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps. These tie-downs will help secure large heavy cargo to your trailer. They are quick and hassle-free with the CargoBuckle G3 ratchet system. They do feature a quick release self-retracting design, and they use a permanent bolt-on installation. These do tighten down quickly with the sure-grip rubber-coated handle.
Makes it easy to grip and control with one hand. There is a push-button release which is located right under the handle, what that does is that it allows the handle to move up and down. This also has dual safety locks and what that is on the housing on each side is a cut out, and that'll allow the handle to be put in a lock position. It does have a vinyl-coated steel S-hook which will help protect your cargo from any scratches and it is designed to permanently mount to your trailer or your truck with one bolt and the mounting hardware is included. This ratchet is a durable construction, corrosion-resistant steel body.
The strap is seatbelt-quality polyester webbing. It is all covered with a sturdy plastic housing and also has a stainless-steel spring on the inside. The dimension on the strap will be 2 inches wide by 6 feet long. Does have a maximum load strength or breaking strength of 3500 pounds. The actual safe working load limit for it would be 1/3 of that, which would be 1167 pounds.
This part number does contain 2 of the ratchet straps, and the mounting hardware. It does have a 1 year limited warranty. And just to give you a quick demonstration on how it operates is if you pull up on the release, move the handle all the way into the upright position, that'll allow the strap to extend out and retract back. So when you hook it to your tie-down point, it'll keep tension on the cargo. And then if you pull up on the release and move it down into the ratchet position, that'll allow you to snug it up.
And once you get completely tight, pull up on the release, move it into the lock position, that'll keep the strap across your. And when it comes time to unload it, just pull up on the release, move it the all the way into the upright position, that'll allow you to remove the hook from the tie-down point and your strap will retract back into your housing. And that should do it for part number IMF18800.

My brother bought a set of these to put on his ATV trailer and once I saw how easy there were to use and how well they performed, I had to have a set for my trailer. They are very easy to hook up, ratchet down and release. I had a set on my boat trailer, but I never thought about using them on my utility trailers. No more untangling straps, lose ends flapping in the wind and worries about my tie downs coming loose. I plan to install them on all of my trailers and a set in the back of my truck. 207030
by: Problem With The Handles08/19/2016
I have 10 of these ratchet straps attached to a flatbed trailer that's kept outside. After a few months sitting in the sunshine, the orange plastic covering on the handles became brittle and disintegrated in my hand. Without the plastic covering, I now have metal handles that are hot and very uncomfortable to ratchet with. I'm very disappointed that this happened because the straps themselves work great, it's the orange plastic covering on the handle handle that failed. I've checked, and there are no replacement parts for this problem. I haven't had any problems with the same ratchet straps I keep inside my enclosed trailer. The failure only happened to the ratchet straps exposed to direct sunshine when attached to my flatbed trailer that is stored outside in the hot Arizona sun. It's disappointing that the "Cargo Buckle" company does not mention this as a possible problem or give any warning to cover the handles when stored outside. 285579
These Retractable G-3 Tie-Down Straps are GREAT!! Very east to install and Operate. No more fumbling with loose straps! These Straps stay in place and they look Very nice on my Boat. Just a bit of advice, I put sealant on the treads and on the bolt head to make it harder for someone else to remove. 108800

The product appears to be as promised. I haven't been able to use it because the package was missing one washer and one lock nut. So now I have to go to tractor supply to buy the missing parts. Not very good quality control on the packaging end. 104263
Excellent product, I use them on my trailer that I tow my ATV on and they are perfect and ho;d the ATV in place when traveling without any problem. I would recommend these to anyone. I attached them to my trailer with one (1) bolt that bolts the rachet strap to trailer and they remain on the trailer. Once I have the ATV loaded I just release the strap and attach the straps one to the front and one to the rear of the ATV. I cross load tha ATV on the trailer and it never moves st all. I can load a second ATV across the rear and I have two (2) more rachet straps to hold that one down too. Actually I have a total of six (6) rachet straps on the trailer so I can tie down most anything that I am carrying on the trailer. I highly recommend the rachet straps and I will certainly buy more when I need them as they are well worth the money. 243964

Works great for trailering my polaris r anger. 149763
The ratcheted tie downs have worked extremely well as I ordered them to do. They were to replace ties that had broken and did not have a ratchet. I intended to secure my power wheel chair to it's lift when transporting the chair on my van. The manufacturer did not have the original tie downs to purchase for replacement. So, to the internet I go and I found your site with the model and Brand of product I was searching for. These tie downs have really simplified the loading and unloading of the power wheel chair upon which I depend to add a level of quality to my life. I 345878

Awesome product! Very sturdy and easy to work with. 145173
I have been using these for several years. Mine have quit working because of being out in the elements for so long. These work really great on my UTV trailer. Really makes things fast when tying down your rig. No messing with untangling and adjusting conventional type straps. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a permanent tie down system. 322924

These are probably the most useful products of all that we have ever purchased for our mowing rigs. These retractable ratchet straps have cut our loading & unloading times by 60-70%. They secure our mowers perfectly and do the job all the time. The only negative about them is they do eventually wear out, with constant use. We usually allow them 3 years of useable time, which is still reasonable, given their very good price. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is interested in securing equipment very quickly. 189560

Replaced worn cargo buckles with this retractable ratchet tie down system. Works great! They are so strong they can bend the frame on our wheelchair lift. So once they are tight, pay attention to item you are securing, as cargo buckles are extremely strong!Perfect fit and arrive ahead of schedule. Thanks!! 296514
A friend had these on their trailer and I was impressed at how easy they were to use. I wanted them for hauling a Polaris and other 4 wheelers. Simple easy instructions for mounting. Had all 4 installed on my trailer in about 20 minutes. Etrailer had a problem with my billing address (not their fault), but they called and emailed me to let me know. I completed the order over the phone and had it in a couple of days. Great experience and product. 227944

Truly like the simplicity of these Cargo Buckles! From the installation to the hook-up securing process was, actually fun! Considering all the knuckle "busting" that I experienced from previous cargo securing product. I am using these Cargo Buckles for securing my UTV on utility trailer. Quick hook-up and securing! Convenient and strategically located! Oh! Your video, showing and displaying installation was absolutely great! Thanks guys.! 327843

These are excellent ratchet straps that we use here on our Army base. We use these straps to help secure our platforms to Army vehicles when we are welding and attaching items to the tops of vehicles. They are perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for your assistance and ease of purchasing and delivery to us, as we were able to get these right to our line and continue assisting the warfighter. 161247

I bought 6 of these for my ATV trailer I have not installed them yet but they are even better looking and better quality then the pics I know I will be 100% satisfied with them and plan on ordering 3 more for my ATV Trailer and some for my other Trailer, Another good thing about them is I no longer have to carry a milk crate in my truck filled with a bunch of tangled up tie down's 163204
by: Mike W01/06/2015
larger than expected so I think they will be easier to operate, nicer than picture shows, smooth cam operation, we'll see how they work after a couple years exposed to the elements and road debris and winter salt. For now I think they are perfect for my application as ATV/ equipment trailer tie downs. etrailer.com has been easy to order from. 167910
by: Shawn vickers03/06/2017
Awesome product. Always hated how straps would loosen as you hit bumps on road. That no longer happens with these. Bolts that come with them were not long enough. Had to get 3 1/2 inch, but that is an easy fix. Very easy to install and use! Feel much better about loading Harley on Trailer and heading across country to bike week. 349011
by: JAMES M.12/09/2014
I RECEIVED THE CARGOBUCKLE G3 RETRACTABLE RATCHET TIE-DOWN STRAPS & WAS IMPRESED WITH THE SIZE & WEIGHT OF THEM. I HAUL TWO MOWERS ON MY TRAILER & HAVE BEEN USING MUCH SMALLER TIE-DOWNS THAT ALWAYS GET TANGLED & THEY TAKE MUCH LONGER TO ATTACH. THESE ARE MUCH BETTER AND SHOULD LAST A LONG TIME. GREAT PRODUCT FOR THE MONEY. 163878
by: John B10/07/2016
We move garden tractors between locations and tying them in on the trailer takes 10 to 15 minutes. The CargoBuckle drops that to less than a minutes and the load is secured better. Our equipment dealer uses this product and was the one that recommended it. Its a great product, well made and lives up to your description. 304105
by: Joe S.12/18/2014
These are handy as hell to have on your trailer. I use them to secure the front end of my quad / ATV on a utility trailer. Take the few minutes to install these and stop monkeying with general purpose straps! What a time saver and convenience factor, especially when cold and/or rainy and coming in from a hunt. 166099
have not installed yet but these buckles look of high quality heavy build. will be using on a ski boat trailer for rear end tie downs. no more storing tie-downs! Item was shipped quickly and whole experience was awesome. definitely will use e-trailer again and happy to refer friends. 165797

Love the product and will recommend to my friends and family. I trailer my ATVs during hunting season and also to Colorado during the summer. The cargo straps make it easy to bind them down and I always know where they are. Thanks for a great product, Stan Smith 142187

Put these on my 21ft Proline fit perfectly around trim tabs and made it a simple operation un-hooking and hooking up at the dock what was a 5-10 minuets operation is now less than 3 minuets well made and sturdy for a 3500 lb boat would recommend highly 316478

These are the perfect solution to the tie-down process for my Polaris 900 RZR. It took about 1 hour for installation, but now I drive on the trailer and in less than a minute the unit is secure for trips over rough roads. I recommend highly. 189116
by: Phillip L.11/19/2014
My order was processed immediately and I received the package within 3-4 days. Buckles were very easy to install and work great. This will save about 20 minutes each time I load or unload my ATV, and eliminate the hassel of ratchet straps. 161796
Appear to be well made and very heavy duty. I like the rubbery coating on the handle. Installation was simple, drill one hole for each strap and bolt on. Just installed so I can't say how they will hold up. Will be used to tie down an UTV. 227584
by: Barry A.03/05/2013
Received the product, was exactly as described. The retracting system is going to save me lots of time on & offloading my equipment. The price was reasonable, and the service has been great. I would highly recommend etrailer.com to anyone! 69104

This product is for a friend with complications from a stroke which left him partially disabled. This product allows him the ability to load his Razor without relying on help from others or struggling with a cam lock tie down. 58854

These great ratchet straps. No more searching for a tie down for my things on my trailer. Ordered it at 4pm on a Friday an it was shipped within a few minutes, now that's fast service. I'll definitely be back. Mark T 149193
Well built with a very easy to use ratchet system. The straps have the length to fit my boat perfectly. These straps will never come loose during trailering like my original straps. Very easy to install. 268844
by: Bill M.09/08/2016
These are wonderful. Worked great. Held a Yamaha venture in place while trailering 900 miles on some of the roughest roads in the US. Ordering was easy and delivery was fast. Very pleased. 292593
Have bought these in the past. They work great. Strap stays wound up out of the way. Coating on hook doesnt last long. They could be a couple feet longer. Would buy again. Eat some dust. ?? 252893
