Review of BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs Trailer Cargo Control IMF14256

Today we are going to review Part Number IMF14256. These are the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting, Transom Tie-Down Straps. These tie-downs will make securing your boats transom to your trailer quick and hassle free. They feature a quick release, self-retracting design. They are stainless steel construction and are a permanent bolt-on installation. These will tighten down quickly with the sure-grip rubber coated handle which makes it easy to grip and control with one hand.

The dual push button release is on each side and when the button is pushed, it releases the strap to extend out and it does retract back automatically. They do have a vinyl coated steel S hook which will help protect your boats finish. They do include the mounting hardware which will allow you to permanently mount to your trailer with the one bolt on each one. They do have a stainless steel body. The ratchet is a seatbelt quality polyester webbing all inside a sturdy plastic housing and on the inside is a stainless steel spring.

The dimension on the strap is 2 inches wide and 43 inches long. They have a maximum load strength or a breaking strength of 1,500 pounds. The actual safe working load limit would be one-third of that, or 500 pounds. This part number does include two transom ratchet straps and the mounting bolts. They do come with a one year limited warranty.

Just a quick demonstration; you actually bolt these ratchet straps to the rear cross member of your trailer and then you just extend them out and attach it to the transom anchors on your boat, like that. With the release button down, that will allow the strap to move in and out. When you pull up on the handle, it will lock in the release buttons. Underneath there is a little lever that when you hold up on that and then move the handle, that will allow you to ratchet it up and tighten down the transom of your boat to your trailer. Once it is all tight, you are ready to go.

When you are ready to unload the boat, you just push down on either side, the release button, remove the S Hook from your transom anchor and the strap will retract back into the housing. That should do it for Part Number IMF14256.
