Review of Yakima Cargo Tie Downs Y05006


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number Y05006. These are the Yakima cinch straps with the padded cam buckles. You're going to get one pair, or two straps. The cinching tie downs are going to let you secure a variety of items to your cargo carrier or roof rack. This unit's going to be ideal for kayaks, canoes, surfboards, paddleboards, as well as a lot of other gear. One of the biggest advantages of this unit, or this part number, is right here, actually over the cam buckle. We're going to have a really nice rubber cover.

Now, this is going to help prevent scratches to your vehicle or scratches to your cargo. Nice, solid design allows a lot of padding around the buckle, and it really does cover the entire buckle or any portion of the buckle that would make contact with your vehicle or your gear. Underneath the rubber protector is going to be a nice cam lock buckle. That's going to hold the strap tight over your gear. This is a really simple operation. All you've got to do is take the plain end of the strap through the buckle, and simply what I'm doing there is I'm pushing down on the release lever.

That's opening up the buckle and allowing me to bring my strap through. Now, you would obviously already have this around your gear. Place the plain end through, and then you can simply just cinch it down by pulling the exposed end of the strap. Once you get that tied over your gear, you can see that I can't pull it back through the opposite way unless I push down on the release lever. Really nice design, very simple operation. Yakima uses a strong box stitch, polypropylene webbing, so their straps are very strong and durable.

You're going to get two straps, each strap's going to measure 16 feet in total length. It's going to measure one inch wide. They can be cut if needed, but that's totally up to you. Again, you're going to get one pair, or two cinch straps, and Yakima's going to cover this product with a lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's review of part number Y05006. .
