Review of BoatBuckle Cargo Tie Downs IMF18740


Today we're going to be reviewing part number IMF18740. This is the BoatBuckle Pro Series Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps. You're going to get 2 straps with this part number. These are heavy duty tie-down straps that are going to firmly secure your boat's transom and stern to your trailer. They're made from a seat-belt quality polyester material and then it's got the ratcheting design to tighten the strap down. Underneath the ratchet strap or the ratchet mechanism, is going to be a protective pad that's designed to protect the boat's paint finish. Then you're going to have the vinyl-coated steel top S-hook.

Again, that is designed to protect the finish on your boat as well. The bottom hook is a zinc-coated steel. It's designed to attach to the trailer and the zinc-coating is going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. Now when it comes to the actual strap, it's going to measure 1 inch wide by 3 feet in total length. The maximum load is going to be 1,200 pounds per strap, that's also the break strength, with a safe working load limit of 400 pounds per strap. Again, you're going to get 2 straps with this part number. The way it works is you would load your boat on to your trailer, connect the bottom hook to the back end of your trailer's frame and then connect the vinyl-coated hook to the loops on the stern of the boat.

Then all you have to do, is use this ratchet mechanism here to tighten the strap. You lift up on that middle portion there, that's going to open the ratchet mechanism and then you can simply start ratcheting it down until you get it nice and tight. Please keep in mind that transom tie-down straps should always be used with a winch strap and a set of gunwale tie-downs. All straps should be chosen according to their safe working load limit. That's going to do it for today's review of part number IMF18740. This is the BoatBuckle Pro Series Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps.
