Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AJM Highly recommend NOT buying these. Very cheap!
I tied down my motorcycle in a trailer (done this several times with other tie downs, never had a problem). I didn't have any other tie downs other than these available. It was about a 350 mile journey, and about 5-10 miles from my house one of them snapped and caused A LOT damages to the bike. The tie downs had been used 3-4 times, and were less than 2-3 years old. They had NEVER been used in poor weather either. Definitely shell out a few extra dollars and get the lifetime warranty, as these ones have a horrible warranty. Well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cinester71 Can do it all
These are primarily used for strapping down my motorcycle when we trailer it to the track or the mountains, they work great. Since it is ratcheting type, you can be 100% certain that the tension that you set is going to hold for the length of the trip. I have used non ratcheting straps sold at local motorcycle dealers and you have to continually check them every stop to make sure the bikes are not loose. The hooks also have a good amount of coating to prevent scratching or marring of tie down area on motorcycle. These would work great on anything you need strapped down!

These 12 ft ratcheting tie down straps are good quality. While not being heavy duty, they are rated 440 lbs. and work well within their limits. They cost way less than heavy duty straps, so they are a great value too.
I like the rubber padded back side of the ratchet, which prevents scratching whatever you are strapping down.
Some other reviewers wrote that the spool can't hold the entire length of the strap. That's right, because that's not how straps work! Read the instructions if it's not clear to you without them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frumious Good light to medium duty tie-downs
These are good for securing items that will not tip over. They keep things from sliding around. I.e.: They are good for securing a mattress or lumber in your pickup truck bed. I would not use them (or I would double up on them) to secure anything tippy like a motorcycle in your truck bed.
One nice feature: They have a rubber pad under the ratchet to prevent scratching the paint on your vehicle.
I like the length of these. I have others that extend only to six feet. These are more useful.
Having read some of the critical reviews, I suggest reading the instructions and watching the instruction video before you use these. Tie-downs are not self-explanatory. Instructions are included on the back of the 4-pack. Graphic instructions are also sewn into each tie-down. These are small step-by-step illustrations that require good eyes to see. Best of all, the last little graphic is a bar/dot code your cell phone can read. It will take you to a short video on how to use the tie-downs. There is also a short video on this page (above) that does the same. Watch it twice, the second time following along with your tie-down. It's helpful. I learned something watching it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abehil Nice inexpensive cargo straps
I have used these straps for 5 years. I've used them to tie down in rental trailers lots of times. They work well and I have not had and failures.
There always seems to be enough time between uses that I forget how to feed the strap in so that it will release correctly. So I took these pictures in case they will help anyone with the same problem.
If the strap is fed in the correct way then they will release very simply. If the strap is fed into the spool in the wrong direction, then the spool will get stuck when you try to release and that's no fun at all.
Again, look at the pictures.

These Tie-Downs held our load securely and made it so we had no issue with driving our load from the store.

The ratchet is NOT designed to hold the entire strap. Before you begin to ratchet the strap tight you need to pull out the slack therefore it is tight before you begin to ratchet.
