Erickson Ratchet Straps - EM34417

Durable tie-downs bolt onto your truck bed, trailer, or ladder rack so that you can easily secure cargo. Quick-release buttons simplify unloading, and the retractable design keeps straps neatly stored when they're not in use. 1,200 lbs Max load.


Features:

  • Bolt-on tie-downs let you secure cargo in your truck bed or trailer or on your ladder rack
    • Permanently mount to a flat surface with included hardware
  • Retractable straps automatically wind up into the built-in housings with the push of a button
    • Keeps straps neatly stowed when they're not in use
  • Ratchet mechanisms make it easy to tighten down straps and maintain tension on straps
    • Rubber coating on handle provides a good grip
  • Push buttons on ratchets quickly and easily release straps when you're ready to unload
  • Vinyl-coated steel S-hooks help prevent scratches on your cargo
  • Corrosion-resistant steel bodies
  • Sturdy polyester webbing


Specs:

  • Strap dimensions: 1" wide x 9' long
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Maximum load (break strength): 1,200 lbs
  • Quantity: 2 ratchet straps
  • 90-Day limited warranty


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.


Erickson Re-Tractable, Bolt-On Tie-Down Straps

These Erickson ratchet straps take the hassle out of tying down gear - especially the cargo you transport frequently, such as your boat or motorcycle. Each ratchet housing permanently mounts to your truck bed, trailer, or ladder rack with a single bolt, which is included.


To use one of the tie-downs, simply push down the red release button and pull out the strap. Then secure the vinyl-coated steel S-hook to your cargo and ratchet the strap until it's tight. You have to hook up just one end of the strap each time. And because the straps are permanently mounted, you'll never have to search for a missing tie-down. This saves you time and frustration and gets you out on the road in a flash.

Video Transcript for Erickson Ratchet Straps Tips and Tricks

Here at etrailer we get a lot of questions on how to properly release the tension on our Erickson Ratchet Straps. In our semi-trailer here we've got a lot of shelving units that we'd like to strap down. So let's head on inside and we'll show you how these things work. Now I've already got one of my Erickson Ratchet Straps in place holding my cargo up against the wall of my trailer. We need to go ahead and run one more. So what I'm going to do is go ahead and pull my ratchet out, attach it to my anchor point, and I'm going to lead it down making sure there is no twists or kinks in my strap here. Then I'm going to attach it to my anchor point down here. And then we'll start ratcheting it this way.

We'll want to get that nice and secure that way we know it's not going to go anywhere. That looks pretty good. Now the real issue arises when you go to release the tension. A lot of people think that you just simply press in on this red button and then it gives. Well that's not the case. What you want to do is go ahead and grab ahold of the whole ratchet like this.

Get a nice firm grip on it, push in on the red button, and then close the whole ratchet like this. And then it simply releases the tension that way. Now with the tension broke free we can go ahead and disconnect it from our anchor points and then finish rolling it up. People that have only been pressing the button have reported that the button comes loose, bends, or even stops working over a period of time and they've had to cut the straps. But don't cut your straps. Follow these few simple steps and your Erickson Ratchet Straps will last you for a long time.

Spent a lot of time researching online -- found etrailer.com and their videos are and descriptions are priceless when you don't have the luxury to play with something like this. Shipping was amazingly fast and affordable (even to ALASKA!) I needed a solution to keep my floatplane on a set of dollies in the hangar. Traditional ratchet straps had a long tail and no place to go when the aircraft was not on the dollies. It was a 10 minute process just to strap the plane on. Installed these Erickson Straps in about 10 minutes on the dollies and am very happy. No I can strap the plane in about 30 seconds! 123883

I ordered 2 sets and mounted them to my Curt Aluminum cargo platform. That way, the ratchet straps are right there when I need them--it saves time loading and unloading, and there is no excess strap to worry about. They are plenty strong for what I haul. Shipping is always quick from eTrailer! 222981


Comments

From a mechanical perspective, the Erickson Cargo Tie Downs are still working great. However, they are not plated or coated at all, so they now look really bad from corrosion. Thats disappointing, as I am worried about them rusting apart

First of all, these straps weren’t what I thought they were...that’s my fault. I wanted a strap that maintains retracting force when you pull it out, so that I could hook it on one side of the trailer then go to the other side to tighten it. This strap does not do that. It does retract, but only when you release it from the ratchet side. After a year, two of the four I bought still work, but I have to hit them hard to get them to retract. The webbing has frayed on all of them and I had to remove one because it no longer worked. They don’t seem to be built well enough to be left outside, and I don’t think they are a very good value. 677493

These are fantastic! I have one of them bolted down and put a short piece of chain & a hook on the other one. No more fumbling with loose ends of straps & trying to figure out which way the ratchet operates. 672964

Very good product but I like the pro grip top loader tie down straps better. There a lot heavier duty. I ordered both products for my ladder rack. They both serve there purpose but for lumber the heavier duty tie downs are better. The retractable ratchet straps work good for ladders. 598852



- EM34417
by:

Pretty good overall. One minor complaint however: The retracting mechanism is a little sticky when there’s still about a foot of strap extended, but it’s easy enough to ratchet this section back in manually. Anyway, pretty good! 569212

Purchased these to hold 14 kayaks on a trailer that we use for Special Olympics athletes. They work great- so much simpler to use than anything else we could find- important because different people use them every week, and it shortens the amount of time we spend loading and unloading them. 548277



- EM34417
by:

Yeah the product is ok... It's much nicer than using regular ratchet Straps that always get jammed. I use them on my ladder rack for my work truck to secure them. I noticed that in less than a year, somewhere during the winter, the auto retractor failed, now I have to ratchet a whole lot everytime I take my ladder off my truck to tighten up the Straps so they aren't flopping around in the wind.  If it wasn't for losing the auto retraction feature, I would have given a 5/5 star rating. 533805

by:

Good while they lasted a few months. Less than a year and one of the straps broke, two will no longer retract automatically (have to crank them in inch by inch) and one still works but doesn’t retract the full length. Etrailer reached out to me wanting my feedback one year after purchasing. I told them the above and their reply was basically oh well they have a 90 day warranty. They asked for me to write a review so here it is. 513502

so far so good. Was concerned about installing them on my tube lumber rack since the Straps are really meant for flat surfaces. Once bolted securely, they work as advertised. Love that the hook has a little pocket to sit in that keeps it from flopping around while not in use. 397990

Will be installing these on a kayak trailer. Will be great,not to have to deal with gathering up straps after unhooking. Then again after loading,and hooking back up. Hope they hold up being attached perminitly out in the weather though. 388875

This was the second set of these I have purchased. These did the same as the last set. After about a month of use, I can't get them to release without using a screw driver. Not sure what causes this problem, but it's a problem. Won't buy anymore of this brand. 310219

Ask the Experts about this Erickson Ratchet Straps

Do you have a question about this Ratchet Strap?


  • Where is the Mounting Hole on the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # EM34417
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, # EM34417. The mounting hole is located under the handle. I have made short video that shows the mounting hole location for you to view.

  • Do Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, Part # EM34417, Automatically Retract
  • The Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, part # EM34417, use high strength polyester straps that measure 1 inch wide by 9 feet long. The extra strap length will retract onto the storage hub when the red button (located under the ratcheting handle) is pressed. The auto-retract function is spring operated. Depending on the load you are securing you may want to consider the Erickson Chrome-Protector Sleeves, part # EM06305-2. These easily slip over the straps and can be positioned...

  • Recommended 15 Foot Long Tie-Down Straps with Bolt and S Hook
  • The longest bolt on strap with hook we have is the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases - 2" x 10' # EM34416. For your 15 foot length you may want to consider using two of the # EM34417 straps and connecting the hooks in the middle. If that won't work for your application, then I recommend using a 15 foot strap like # EM01416 and Let's Go Aero D-Ring Tie-Down Anchors - Bolt On # MMP536.

  • Length and Diameter of Mounting Bolts for Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps # EM34417
  • The mounting bolts for the Erickson Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps are 5/16 inch in diameter and are 3-1/8 inches long. The working load limit (WLL) for each strap is 400 lbs, which means that although the straps can withstand load spikes up to 1200 lb, you should not exceed a 400 lb load on the strap.

  • Dimensions of the Ratchet Mechanism on Erickson Bolt-On Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34417
  • I took a sample of the Erickson Bolt-On Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps # EM34417 from our warehouse so that I could take the measurements you asked about. I prepared a photo for you to illustrate the measurements of the main ratchet housing and the bottom mounting surface. The overall ratchet housing measures 5-1/2-inches from end to end and 2-1/4-inches wide at its widest part. The base portion that bolts down to your preferred mounting surface measures 4-inches long x 1-3/4-inches wide. Please...

  • Is the Erickson Re-Tractable, Ratcheting, Bolt-On Tie-Down Strap, # EM34417 Corrosion Resistant
  • The Erickson Re-Tractable, Ratcheting, Bolt-On Tie-Down Strap, # EM34417, would be a good choice for marine applications. The metal parts are steel but have a zinc-dichromate coating for corrosion resistance. The handle is made of sturdy plastic that will not rust. You should not have problems with it seizing in a marine environment. To pro-long the life of it, you can clean off any salt deposits after use. Tie-down straps should always be chosen according to their Safe Working Load...

  • Why Does it Seem Like My Erickson Ratcheting Tie Downs are Coming Loose
  • I think something else might be happening here, it sounds like you are getting the tie-downs tight and locked but then as you drive the wheelchair might move or the strap might slide and then the tension that was in the tie-down has been reduced and feels like the strap has come loose. It is not uncommon to have to tighten and re tighten loads periodically as you are traveling down the road. If you put the lever of the all the way in the down position it will be locked.

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long Tie-Down Strap to Use on a Tarp
  • To use a rubber strap you would need to attach 2 or 3 straps, like the Erickson Rubber Tarp Strap, part # EM06741, together to be able to reach that length. I do not have a single rubber tarp strap that will stretch to 8 feet. I do offer tie-down straps and ratchet straps that would be able to give you the 8 foot distance you need. A few examples would be the Erickson Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps, part # EM34417, that is 9 foot long. Also, have three choices in the 10 foot...
