Review of BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps IMF12598

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the BoatBuckle Ratchet Gunwale Tie-Down Strap. Now this tie-down strap lets you firmly secure your boat to your trailer. It features a stainless steel ratcheting mechanism and stainless steel S-hooks. So these are very strong and durable, they provide maximum corrosion resistance, and they're great for saltwater applications.The ratcheting mechanism makes it easy to tighten down and maintain tension on the strap. This unit lets you easily tighten the strap precisely, with no guesswork, and it lets you loosen the strap instantly with the built-in quick-release lever. So you would take that, open it up all the way, and then you could easily loosen up the strap as needed, and that's also how you could remove the strap completely from the ratcheting mechanism.Again, stainless steel construction, it's strong and durable, great for saltwater applications.

The webbing or the strap on this is a durable nylon, it's flexible and weather-resistant. This strap measure one inch wide, and it's available in 12-foot and 18-foot lengths. For a 12-footer, you would use part number IMF12597, right here at And for 18 feet, you would use IMF12598.It features a safe working load limit of 333 pounds, and a maximum load or break strength of 1,000 pounds. It's very easy to use, I have all the excess strap bundled up here, because it is pretty long.

Again, 12-foot or 18-foot lengths. But basically, you would take the hooks and you would anchor them to the trailer, so you attach them to the anchor points on your trailer, and then you'd pull out any slack that you have, and then you'd use the ratcheting mechanism to tighten the strap over the boat, and secure it to your trailer.Always keep in mind that tie-down straps must be chosen according to their safe working load limit. So the weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined working load limit of the straps being used.That's gonna do it for today's look at the BoatBuckle Ratchet Gunwale Tie-Down Strap.
