Yes they can be cut. Use sharp scissors to cut where you need it and then take a lighter or something hot and burn the frayed edges where you cut. Cutting the webbing down shorter is not going to compromise the integrity of the strap as you are only cutting an area of the strap that isnt used. Read Less

Answer: 
You can cut them down, i would recommend taking a lighter to the cut end to melt it, to prevent it from fraying. i usually just take the extra and tie it to something else to keep it from flying all over the place, one day you might need the extra length, so if you cut it you might need to but more .

Answer: 
No, would not recommend. Strap has thin webbing, it would compromise the already weak strap. Mine broke after the 1st use. If you damage the strap but cutting it, you may loose your ability for financial recourse when the strap brakes while hauling a load.

Answer: 
Just pull the extra strap through before winding. Leave very little strap on the ratchet, just enough to get about 1 turn and then they will tighten fine. Tie the loose strap down or it will flap around. If you know you will never use the full length you can cut them, but then melt the cut edge with a flame so it doesn't unravel. Wear some gloves so you can flatten the melted end so it will go through Read More

Answer: 
You can cut the strap, but why? Better to have more than less. You always take the extra length and just tie it off to something so it doesn't blow around. You may need that extra length some day.

Answer: 
You can, however it may begin to fray. If cut too short, that would lower the life expectancy. Instead, if you pull the slack all the way through the ratchet BEFORE tightening, you can just bundle it up above the ratchet, between the thing and the strap.

Answer: 
You release the tight down by pulling back on part that says release. While you hold the release level down push the main ratchet lever all the way back to the open position. Once the lever is in that position all you have to do is pull the ratchet mechanism towards the attached webbing.

Not sure about a 15 inch version but the 16 foot one is rather simple (If you didn't over-tighten). Pull the black release slide lock towards you, away from the silver gears. this allows the ratchet handle to go past the gear mechanism backwards. If you keep going, it will actually press the spring loaded release away from the locking gear and allow the spindle to spin. While holding it in this position Read More

I'd recommend testing this with a non-tight one. Read Less

Answer: 
These straps would be strong enough to lift some motorcycles, but If I were you. I would be safe and get some more substantial straps. In a situation where you are dealing with lifting brand new expensive motorcycles. id get straps that have a working load rating of at least double the heaviest bike you will be lifting. Just to be safe

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The (very thin) strap ratchets onto the spool, and it's not easy to play out. These DO NOT come with with the strap attached to the ratchet, and it spools onto it to the point where it stuck/jammed. I tried two different approaches on threading the strap through the ratchet mechanism, but was at a job, didn't have time to mess with it and took them back the next day. Used rope instead. Trucker's hitch won't fail you! Poor instructions/pictures. These straps are polyester, not nylon, and will degrade if you live in someplace hot, like AZ, NM, TX, etc. Instructions actually warn of this. "Keep them inside." Well, duh, I keep them in the cab but... I personally WOULD NOT use these for a high value item like a motorcycle. I've only lost one load, and that's because of cheap tie downs. This product is not trustworthy unless you're willing to deal with state troopers who'll cite you for losing a load, then deal with having to clean it up! I DO NOT recommend this product. Made in Cheapo China, but then, what else is new, eh? October 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent when transporting heavy items. We use these ratchet tie downs when transporting large and heavy items which must remain secured. They hold great and are a breeze to use! October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by These are great ratchet tie downs. I purchased them on a whim because I needed to move a very large and heavy executive desk. Id highly recommend these over the keeper straps that are found in store. Simply because they just work a lot smoother. For some reason the keeper straps are very hard to release. That may not sound like a big deal, but it really does become a huge headache. These straps have a rating of 770 lbs if I am not mistaken, with 16 feet of webbing. Plenty of strength for the average load and there are stronger straps produced under the HDX brand. Home depot really won with these as they are cheaper than the keeper straps and they work better. Once they are tightened down they are no coming loose until you release them. The webbing is thin but strong. I moved a 500 pound desk down the freeway and lots of city streets with my tail gate open. One of these straps was the only thing keeping that desk from sliding back and flying off the truck and the thing never budged. A lot of people tend to pass up store brands. I use to be one of those people, but I would highly recommend purchasing these over the Keeper brand. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchased - good quality and a good price Easy to use and durable. Have used multiple times. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for moving The length is great for anchoring inside of Pods. These are sturdy high quality tie downs. If you pay attention to the packaging and dont get knife happy you can store them in the nice hanging rack they come in, when you not using them. The package has tabs that slide out and open up for easy removal and replacement. August 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by They cut themselves Lost one of these on the highway (apologies to whoever found it!) because there are sharp edges on the mechanisms that cut the straps: I could tell because one of the others got cut only half way through and so hadn't fallen off yet. The ratchet mechanism also intrudes onto the spool area so you can't wind very much on until running the risk of it failing to ratchet at all. I *also* don't like that the hooks are relatively open at the end rather than ending parallel to the strap: This too seems a likely point of failure because if the strap isn't pulled really tight it can work loose. On the plus side, they are quite strong and seem well made for the price. But the design flaws mean that IMHO these are not a good choice. I actually went back to the cheap orange ones because even though they're not nearly as strong, they're a lot more reliable. July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good tiedowns, after practice They do work well. But the release is different from other tiedowns and was not obvious to me. If you never used this type tiedown-- you can't wrap more than a foot of webbing. You pull all the excess webbing through, so there's just a little slack. Now start working the lever. While they are strong for the price, don't expect to honk them up to hundreds of pounds strain without trouble. If you need more force, use more tiedowns. Yes, on some small jobs you may have 4 yards of extra webbing flapping in the breeze. Wind the excess over your rack and back then tie-off the end so it doesn't slap on the highway. Or wrap it around your hand and tie-off this bundle. If you never have large jobs, cut and melt the end. Neatly so it still fits the slot. The release is actually sorta smart, but not clear at first. Pull the finger-grip on the lever. Swing the lever ALL the way back. It fits in a notch. Press finger-grip into the notch, this releases the body ratchet, ZING the webbing goes slack. Leave the main lever in the slot as you pull the webbing through. Then re-set the main lever for storage or further use. Don't loan-out your tiedowns! They usually come back all tangled. At this price it is best to send your friend to Home-Depot and get his/her own straps. I don't get the "camouflage". I got a chrome motorcycle, or a big blue tarp, camo straps won't hide my load. But I guess different folks have different needs. April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Like you should expect for $17 If you lost the instructions, please play with a ratchet until you figure it out. I promise that basic spatial reasoning will come in handy later in life. Mine did have one tab that was not bent properly, but it honestly took 20 seconds to bend with a screwdriver. The straps are thinner than I hoped, but I guess that's so you can draw in more strap without it bunching up (because people apparently don't think to pretension soft loads). These should be perfect for tying down furniture, but they are NOT suitable for lifting motorcycles overhead. September 25, 2015
