Review of the Erickson Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson 6-foot, ratcheting tie-down set, part number Em05515. These tie-down straps have a wide variety of applications. Whether you're securing firewood or camping gear in a hitch-mounted cargo carrier, or you're securing your four-wheeler or UTV into your pickup truck bed or trailer. The strap, itself, is made of a durable woven fabric, which is really strong. The strap features these nice, vinle-coated hooks, that's going to prevent any scratches or abrations from happening to your gear, or your pickup truck. Now if you can see here, the specially designed stitch pattern, which secures the hook to the strap.

Those extra stitchings there provide strength and durability for the hook. The ratcheting mechanism of the strap is made of a heavy-duty, stainless steel. It's going to help resist rust, currosion, and will stand the test of time from the elements. All right, so now we'll go ahead and we'll just secure the strap into the ratchet, here. Now when you do this, you want to make sure that the solid handle is at the top. Starting from the back side, we'll insert the strap, make it come out the loop, here, pull around.

That way, you have straps coming from two sides. When you actually ratchet it, going to bring the straps around, allowing me to safely and securely transport your gear to your destination. Now on this strap, just like most other ratchet straps, there are two levers on the ratcheting mechanism. There's this lever here, at the top, which that's how you can actually open it without tightening it. Then there's this lever here, that when you pull that down and you pull on the strap, it will free it up, allowing you to loosen the strap to unload your gear, or pull it tighter, much quicklier than ratcheting it back and forth.

Now you can see that we have some camping gear loaded up in our hitch-mounted cargo carrier. We're just going to finish off securing it, and then we'll head on out on the road. Now we've got our gear loaded up and secured, using the Erickson 6-foot ratcheting tiedown set. That will complete today's review of part number Em05515. .
