Review of the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Gunwale Tie-Down Strap


What's up, everybody. It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out this safety strap from BoatBuckle. Now this is gonna be a gunwale strap. And what it's gonna do, it's gonna go around the top of your boat, attach to your trailer on the back, and just help hold this backside down. Just a safety strap, just in case you might need it.

If it was to pop up or something this is gonna help hold it in place. Let's check it out. Just wanna be clear that this is not gonna be a replacement for your transom strap. This is a safety strap. It's kind of a just-in-case kind of strap.

It's not gonna replace the ratchet or transom ones. They actually hold it super tight. Now on each end of the strap, there's S hooks. They are coated. So don't worry about if you do attach it to your trailer, it's not gonna scratch or damage anything.

But we actually don't have any tie-down points on this trailer. So we just kind of attached the S hook to the strap itself and pulled it tight. Straps gonna come all the way up here to this buckle. The buckle works really well. To undo it you can just pull up on the strap itself.

You don't have to get your fingers underneath there if you don't want to. You can just pop it up, now it's loose. Then tighten it back in, just push down on it. As far as dimensions go, this one's gonna be 16 foot long. It's gonna be 2 inches wide. Now there is also a 10 foot long one. If you need something a little bit shorter, that is an option. Now it's gonna have a safe working load limit of 400 pounds. And it's gonna have a break point strength of 1,200 pounds. So just keep that in mind on what you decide to strap down and what kind of trailer you're gonna use it on. The strap is made out of a seatbelt quality construction. So you can see it's gonna last. It's not gonna be easy to rip it up. And that's good when it's under that kind of tension. You even have the double stitching over here, just to reinforce those areas that are stitched together. Overall, I think it's gonna be a good addition to your boat and its trailer. It's definitely always better to be safe than sorry. Have that extra strap here. Just help holding it down when you're going down the road. Well, thanks for hanging out and I hope this helped..
