  • How to Install the CargoBuckle G3 Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps to an Aluminum Trailer
  • We have a video review of the CargoBuckle G3 Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # IMF18800, and I have linked it for you. Installation is straight forward. The straps have a mounting hole on the base and include nuts, bolts, and washers. All you will have to do is drill an appropriate sized hole where you wish to mount them and use the supplied hardware to attach to the frame. Regular hand tools, box wrenches and/or sockets, are all you will need to tighten them down. If the trailer...

  • Will CargoBuckle G3 Cargo Tie-Down # IMF18804 Fit Trailer With 16 Inch On Center Floor Cross Member
  • I went out to the warehouse and measured the under floor load ring that is included in the CargoBuckle G3 Cargo Tie-Down, part # IMF18804, to give you an idea of the clearance needed to mount this tie-down to your trailer. This under floor load ring is the part that is used as a template to determine the clearance needed on your trailer. I am including a picture of the under floor load ring as it looks assembled with the tie-down. The overall length of the load ring is 10-3/8 inches...

  • How Well Do Retractable Ratchet Straps Hold Up After Repeated Use in and around Salt Water
  • Like anything that sees a lot of activity in a salt water environment you would want to rinse the CargoBuckle straps # IMF18800 with fresh water afterwards to prolong the life of the straps. Also letting the straps dry prior to retracting them will make the ratcheting in/pulling the line out work better and last longer then trying to do so when wet. This is true for any ratchet strap. This little bit of maintenance will help to reach the maximum lifespan of a strap. Stainless steel is...

  • Will the Door Close with the G3 Ratcheting Tie-Down out of the Housing
  • Yes, the door will lay back down in the closed position when the ratchet is out of the housing. The handle must be all the way forward for the door to close. I pulled the tie-down from our warehouse and made a short video for you showing how the door closes with the ratchet out of the housing.

  • Motorcycle Tie-Down Recommendations for a 700 Pound Motorcycle and Pressure Treated Flat Bed
  • The CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Downs, # IMF103745-86, would work well to secure your 700 pound motorcycle. If at all possible, bolt the tie-downs to the metal part of the frame. If you have attach it to the wood bed, I recommend adding a steel backing plate on the underside of the wood for support. You could also add some D-rings, like # RR5K, which comes with a backing plate. You may also need adapter # IMF14086 to use with these D-rings. You could also use straps...

  • Can CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Strap Pull In at an Angle
  • CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Strap # IMF18804 is going to behave like just about any ratchet strap.

  • Recommended Tie-Down Straps for Eagle Boat Trailer & 2015 Alumacraft Competitor 165 Sport
  • Trailer cargo control tie-down straps should always be selected based on their working load limit (WLL), which is one-third of their actual break strength. You never want to exceed a strap's safe WLL in any application. CargoBuckle Cargo Tie Downs # IMF103745 have a WLL of 466-lbs each. If one of these failed in your 2-strap set-up then I recommend adding more straps to better distribute the overall load. I recommend using four straps. You could use two sets of the Erickson Re-Tractable...

  • Do the CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable Ratchet Straps have a Bolt Hole Mounting Pattern
  • The CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable Ratchet Straps # IMF103745 only use one bolt each to mount to a surface so there isn't a template or bolt hole pattern. The bolt holes are in the centers. One allows you to leave the bolt in place and loosen it to remove the ratchet strap or tighten it to lock it into place. The other hole is a regular round hole for permanent mounting (meaning you would have to completely remove the bolt to take the ratchet strap off).

It is recommended that the straps be used in multiples of two, so if the weight of the vehicle exceeds 4,668 lbs, you would add two more straps. To secure a vehicle, using a axle...

  • Strapping Down Kayaks to Rhino Rack Kayak Carrier part # S510
  • The part # IMF13454BK is normally used for securing motorcycle handlebars without marring the finish of them. Basically the strap has a loop on each end.

To carry kayaks with the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S510 you will need to strap down the kayaks front and back.
