Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and today we're taking a look at the ratchet tie-down straps with storage bag. So this is going to come with that storage bag. It's going to be waterproof, or water-resistant and we'll have our four ratchet tie-down straps to get any of our cargo or any of our items secured. So if you're securing a motorcycle in the back of your truck, or maybe putting it onto a flat bed trailer, hauling any kind of items, maybe securing a kayak or a canoe to the top of your vehicle, maybe on a ladder rack, any kind of application like that, these are going to be a great option.The thing that I really like about these is that they are ratcheting. We have a little strap keeper here on one end of our strap to keep down the excess, and then these are going to ratchet nice and easily so that you can get those cinched down in place. The other cool thing about these is that not only do they have the S-style hooks with that vinyl coating, but they also have a little keeper to help prevent any kind of slippage so you don't have to worry about these slipping out of place, especially whenever you're getting them installed. more

Randy: Hey guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at a four-pack of straps from Erickson. Now these are light-duty straps; they're going to be pretty ideal for ATV, UTV, or light-duty use. Now overall with these straps, we're going to have a pretty compact ratchet here. Pretty standard in what you're going to see, just a solid ratchet and get about a finger and a half underneath there, be able to apply the upward force on it. It's going to have a corrosion-resistant finish over all the working surfaces, so we really shouldn't have to worry about rusting corrosion for a long time.The strap itself, of course, is going to be a polyester material. more

Highland Ratchet Tie-Down Straps Review- Video

Highland Ratchet Tie-Down Straps Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the Highland cast aluminum ratchet straps. These are available in a four-pack, a two-pack, or individually, so just be sure you get the right part number you need for your application. Now, the cast aluminum handle that we have here on the strap really makes it very user friendly. I don't know if you're use to other styles of ratchet strap, but typically they're going to have a lot of sharp edges, and as we reach in and try to ratchet them, it tends to put more pressure on our fingers than what we like.In this case, you see with the cast aluminum. We don't have any sharp edges anywhere around here on the handle, and we've got a plenty wide enough grip there to get plenty of power on it to get things secured down properly.Now, the internal portion, you can see all through here, the barrel in which our straps going to ride on, and our release is going to be the standard steel with the clear zinc coating. more
