Expert Answers about Tie Down Straps


  • Backing Plate for Use with Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit EM09160
  • Erickson does offer a zinc-plated steel backing plate for use with their E-Track products like their ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160. Use part # BPEZ. You can see this item's hole dimensions and spacing in the linked photo. Since your trailer deck is aluminum and this plate is steel you will want to isolate them to prevent galvanic corrosion between the two different metals. A coating of paint or other insulating material will do it.

  • What Does Safe Working Load Limit of Load Binder Mean
  • That's a good question, because working load limits (WLL) can be somewhat confusing, but I can explain it for you. The 9,200 lb WLL of the Titan Chain Ratcheting Load Binder for 3/8" - 1/2" Thick Chain # TCRB10 simply means that the binder itself is rated for weights up to 9,200 lbs, but that is separate from the chains. The number of chains you need is determined by their WLL. For example, if you had an 8,000 lb tractor,. you would need the aforementioned binder, as well as two of...

  • Recommended Wheel Tie-Down Straps for Tesla Model 3 on Car Hauler
  • Based on my research the Tesla Model 3 has 18-20 inch diameter wheels/rims that are 8.5 inches wide and uses 235/45R18 or 235/35R20 tires. I recommend using the Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap for Extra-Wide Tire - Vertical Mount - 3,335 lbs # BDW20362 for the tires on your Tesla. Traditional wheel straps won't fit the low profile wide tires, so this style strap is the best option for the application.

  • Transom Strap Recommendation for Length Needed of 2 foot 3 inches
  • Since the length you need is 2 foot, 3 inches the correct length of BoatBuckle Transom strap you'd need is the part # IMF14207 which can stretch out to up to 4 feet in length. It would easily tighten down to the length you need as well.

  • 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...

  • Wheel Straps for Large Size Tires Over 35 inches Tall and 12 Inches Wide
  • We have the Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap for Extra-Wide Tire - Vertical Mount - 3,335 lbs # BDW20362 which is very similar to a wheel net and is compatible with diameters up to 37 inches. It is 9 inches wide so it won't fit over the sides but it is specifically designed for extra wide tires. This is my recommendation for you. We also have wheel nets like # DM03528-93, # UF46-700034, and ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks - 12-1/2" x 33" - 1,830...

  • For securing a vehicle to a trailer the Erickson E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps # EM58523-09162 that you referenced is a great choice. It's very easy to use and works well. It also gives flexibility in how the vehicle will attach to the floor since the different slots can easily be selected. It will require you to install E-tracks on the floor of you trailer though like the # EM19147 for 4 foot long sections. For a backing plate to install on the bottom of the trailer we have the...

  • Erickson E-Track Straps for Enclosed Trailer Transporting ATV
  • If you already have four E-Tracks mounted to the floor of your enclosed trailer and you wish to secure your ATV with only straps, not wheel chocks too, you certainly can do this. But instead of using the strap-and-chock kit # EM09160 you can use one of the E-Track strap-only items shown on the linked page, such as 2-inch x 12-foot ratchet strap # EM59136 which is rated for a working load limit (WLL) of 1165-lbs. We also have longer ratchet straps like the 16-foot # EM59139 with the same...

  • E-Track Wheel Strap Solution for Larger Diameter Wheels
  • If you installed e-track on the floor of your trailer like the part # EM19147 you could use the Erickson E-Track Tie Down kit part # EM58523-09162 which would attach to the track and since it has a strap length of 12 feet it would easily fit a 35 inch diameter tire. Otherwise there isn't a kit like you mentioned that would fit that diameter of tire.

  • Available Lengths of Transom Strap Tie-Downs for Boat Trailers

  • Recessed Ratchet Strap or D-Ring Anchors
  • We may have a solution for you and it sounds like you are looking for a recessed mount for your ratchet straps so nothing is sticking up out of the floor of your enclosed trailer. The CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Strap - Flush Mount # IMF18804 is a great option for something like this because it will mount beneath the floor of your cargo trailer (the mounting hardware is included). The ratchet straps is self-retracting so when you are not using the buckles they will retract...

  • Ratchet Straps that Won't Come Loose when Driving on Rough Roads
  • The mechanism would have to be triggered for the straps in Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # 34414 to move. But with that said there is a better option for rough roads. The ShockStrap ratchet straps # 297-9RSDB are built with an in line shock that combats rough roads and keeps the strap tight and the load secure. I was skeptical at first but take a look at the video I have linked that demonstrates how it works.

  • Does the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 Have to be In-Line with Direction of Travel
  • You can use the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 to help secure your ATV but you really need something securing your ATV in the direction of travel. You could put some Horizontal E-Track like part # E19148 in-line with the direction of travel and do a kind of criss-cross pattern over your ATV with straps like part # EM59136 to help secure it, but Erickson does not recommend securing the load only using a straps that are not with the direction of travel.

  • Can SmartStraps Adjustable Wheel Net be Installed with Anchor Points Outside Center Line of Wheel
  • Ideally you'd want the anchor points for a wheel net like the SmartStraps # 348851 to be in-line with the wheel, but since these are rated for 3,333 lbs (each) and you're using them for a Jeep you'll be perfectly safe to install them slightly off-centered. In fact, the demonstration picture from SmartStraps shows them slightly off-centered (see attached). The lateral pull wouldn't stress your tires out.

The best solution for you and my recommendation is to go with the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF08893. Instead of using extra webbing with a hook, the G2 straps use a bolt to secure the ratchet body...

  • Total Length of Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap
  • The Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap # BDW20362 measures 92" end to end. When I reached out to my contact at Bulldog Winch he confirmed this but also added that since some of the strap will be used for the ratcheting mechanism you'll realistically have a length of about 80" instead. When it comes to side-to-side against your back window the best advice I can give is to use the dimensions mentioned above to mock up a strap so you can get a good idea of how much room you will have.

  • Can Wheel Nets be Used if Car Hauler D-Rings Aren't Inline with Car Tires
  • The D-Rings can be a little out of line with the tires but you still want them fairly close. If this is the case for your car hauler trailer then you can definitely use something like the ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks # 317-18900 for your application. This fits tires with up to a 33" diameter and that are 12-1/2" wide so it should fit your application just fine. Please note that this comes in a quantity of 1.

  • Boat Buckle Retractable Tie Down Strap Replacement

  • Can Single Transom Strap Secure Lighter Weight Aluminum Trailer
  • Ideally you'd want to fix your setup so that both transom straps can be used. In the meantime running a single transom strap would be your best option. While a strap like the part # IMF14220 would have the needed capacity for what you are wanting to do I'd be worried the single attachment point on both the trailer and the boat wouldn't have the capacity.

  • Should Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit be Used on All 4 Wheels of 1,936 Pound Polaris Ranger
  • The 1,500 pound working load limit (WLL) for the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 referenced in your question does refer to the combined capacity of both straps and chocks. Since your Polaris Ranger weighs close to 2,000 pounds, I do recommend using two of these sets to secure all four of its wheels to the trailer. This tie-down kit will provide you with 4 wheel chocks and 2 ratchet tie-down straps for securing 2 wheels. The ratchet straps feature E-track fittings that will...

  • 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.

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.

  • Transom Strap Recommendation for Boat Trailer Carrying 10,000 lb Boat
  • What's really interesting about boat straps like the # IMF14220 is that while they do secure the boat, which in your case is pretty heavy, the amount of weight capacity needed is really the weight of the trailer since basically you need the strap to keep the boat connected to the trailer in an emergency. This strap kit would be what I recommend for you. It has a break strength of 2,500 lbs per strap which would be more than enough for the weight of your trailer.

  • Since the strap itself on the BoatBuckle Heavy Duty Tie-Down Straps # IMF14206 measures 2' in length from the end to the middle of the "S" hook you will have more than enough length for the 18" space you mentioned. From where the strap rolls up on the ratcher to the middle of the "S" hook on the ratchet strap measures 1' so when it is all laid out you will have 3' (36") of strap. Be mindful though that some of the 2' strap will need to be ratcheted into the mechanism for it to be secure.

These straps are 2-inches wide and 5-1/2 ft long. These straps have a 4,000-lb maximum load capacity. There are 2 straps in the package.

  • Can ShockStrap Ratcheting UTV Tie-Down Kit # 297-7RSBB-UTV Secure Street Bike
  • We've had several customers use the E-tracks to secure a Harley like what you are planning on doing.

The included shock absorbers absorb impact to ensure constant tension, even if your Harley shifts. These have more than enough capacity too at 3,000 lbs max load.

  • Can the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit be Installed Diagonally
  • I contacted Erikson and they told me the straps of the ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 should not be used diagonally, and that it is illegal to do so. You might contact your local DOT to check this for your specific area. Erikson also verified that as long as what you are securing is within the 1500 lbs. safe working load limit of the E-Track you do not need to strap down the other end.

  • Erickson E-Track Tie Downs for Mini Cooper
  • The Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-Track Fittings # 77314 would not be compatible with the Erickson Roller Idler for E-Track # EM09144 simply because there would be no way to get the straps from the Wheel Net through the Roller Idler because of the E-track fittings attached to the Wheel Net. I've left links to video reviews of each product for you to take a look at.

  • Does Triangle Ring Part of Bulldog Winch Combo Axle/Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps have to be Used

But you can use just the hook portion to attach to something and not use the triangle ring part if needed and not suffer reduced capacity. I have linked a video featuring these straps for you.
