Review of the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Transom Tie-Down Straps


Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Transom Tie-Down Straps. They come in a quantity of two, with part number IMF13109.Secure your boat's stern to you trailer quickly and safely with the BoatBuckle Transom Tie-Downs. They have a 1,200 pound break strength and a 400 pound safe working load limit. They're easy to operate. It takes just one hand to release the buckle.They're just as easy to close. You wanna be sure that you have a little bit of slack in the strap because when you operate the lever, it takes all of the slack out.

The top of the strap features a rubber-coated S hook so it won't harm or scratch your boat. The bottom S hook is zinc-coated so it's gonna resist corrosion.The strap itself is made out of a durable polypropylene webbing, it's flexible and weather-resistant. The additional flap on the back helps protect your boat from the buckle.The strap is one inch wide and four feet long. Compared to the Erickson Inboard/Outboard Transom Tie-Downs, these do not have a rubber coating. That means two things.

You won't have as much protection as you would with the rubber coating, but you also don't have to worry about the rubber coating coming off and the hooks rusting and corroding.The BoatBuckle has a higher weight limit of 333 pounds versus the Erickson that has 300 pounds. Compared to a standard cam buckle, the Kwik-Lok design is going to maintain better tension on your strap.Mike works with our customers. Mike, what can you tell us about what customers are asking about transom tie-downs Mike: Well, our customers' number one question about transom tie-downs seems to be are they required. Speaker 1: Well, it's always a good idea to have them. It can prevent your boat from jumping up and down on the back of your trailer and when you're going over bumps.

But you wanna check with your local laws. That's a good one. What other questions do they have Mike: Another common question is regards to the zinc coating on here and if it's going to be good for salt water, or is it best used for fresh water. Speaker 1: Well, it's not gonna be as good as stainless steel, but it's gonna do okay. Mike: So if they we're to rinse it off with fresh water, though, it would hold up a lot better.

Right, kinda hose everything down, I could agree with that. Mike: So those are some of the common questions we get on transom tie-downs. Speaker 1: All right, cool. Well thanks a lot, Mike. Mike: No problem. Speaker 1: And that's gonna complete our look at the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Transom Tie-Down Straps, part number IMF13109.
