Review of BoatBuckle Tie Down Straps IMF13109


Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok transom tie-down straps. Now, tie-down straps let you firmly secure your boat's transom or stern to your trailer. When it comes to transom tie-down straps, there's usually a couple different options. So you have your standard ratchet straps, you have cam buckle straps, and then you have quick-lock style mechanisms here. So the quick-lock, over-center buckle, it's easy to use, and it holds your strap tight with a weave-through design. This would be most comparable to a cam buckle or a cinch strap, but it's designed to maintain tension on the strap for a better hold when compared to standard cam buckles or cinch straps.It can open and close with just one hand.

So the way that you'd get it connected is this up right here would connect to the tie-down point on the boat, this one would connect to the tie-down point on the trailer, and then you open up the buckle and you can take out any slack that you need to. So, that's going to allow you to tighten the strap. Then once you have it fully tightened, all you have to do is take this buckle and just rotate it over. Then when once you have your hooks connected, you'll feel it kind of break over. That means that it's tight, that it's locked into position, and that you're ready to hit the road.

Then all you have to do is secure any excess strap that you may have.So it's a very quick, convenient way to secure your transom or your boat to your trailer. The buckles and the hooks are made from a steel construction. They feature zinc-coated finishing to resist rust and corrosion. I do want to point out that one S-hook on each strap features a rubberized vinyl coating. This is designed to prevent scratching and scuffing at the attachment point.

Also, under each buckle, there is a large web pad, which keeps it from scratching and scuffing the contact area. The straps are very strong, durable, flexible and weather-resistant. They measure one inch wide by four feet long.Safe-working load limit is 400 pounds per strap. Maximum load or break strength is 1200 pounds per strap. Please 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 going to do it for today's look at the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok transom tie-down straps.
