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


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the BoatBuckle Stainless Steel 2" Quick-Lock Gunwale Tie-Down Strap. These straps are going to be great to secure the gunwale of your boat down to your trailer. Now these are going to be an alternative if your boat doesn't have the rear security hook. However, if your boat does have the hook, and you want a little added security or a little added safety, you can add this with your rear tie-downs.The straps are going to be made of a strong polyester webbing. It's going to be weather resistant. Each strap is going to have a working load limit of 333 pounds, and a break strength of 1,000 pounds.

Keep in mind if whatever you are carrying is over that working load limit, you will need a second strap.One thing I like about these straps is the buckle and the hooks are made of a corrosion resistant metal, so they can be used in saltwater as well as freshwater. Now what's going to set this buckle apart from your typical cam buckle, you can secure it with one hand, and loosen it with one hand.Another great thing about these straps is although they're designed to secure the gunwale of your boat down, they're going to come in four different lengths, 10 foot, 13 foot, 16 foot, and 20 foot, so it's going to allow you to use them on multiple different applications.Now to install our straps, we're going to go right over the gunwale of the boat from one side to the other, attaching it to the frame. Now we happen to have rope cleats just in line with the back of the boat. We're going to take our hooks. I'm going to go through it.

I go down around like this. I'm going to hook this strap right onto the hook. Once you have the other side the same way, to tighten it, you pull on the strap, fold it over, and it's locked in place.To take it off, you just reverse that order. Flip this up. Pull on your strap, and it's loose.

Another way to release your buckle is to take the short strap and pull up on it. Now, keep in mind while this is strapped down, the buckle will not come up while you're traveling.And that'll do it for a look at the BoatBuckle Stainless Steel 2" Quick-Lock Gunwale Tie-Down Strap.
