Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PicoDeGallo Great Tie-Down Straps
One of the great advantages of these straps is that you can run the short ratchet-end of the straps over a motorcycle handlebar near the top of the forks and snap the strap hooks to the D-rings by the ratchet mechanisms; there is no metal-to-metal connection to slip or mar your chrome. At the back of your bike, less-expensive ratchet straps with rubberized hooks can be used for strap-to-frame connections.
These straps worked perfectly with a U-Haul motorcycle trailer to transport a 500-pound motorcycle on city streets and also at highway speed.
The ratchet mechanisms makes it easy to tighten the straps. The biggest hassle comes when you back off the straps; the compressed forks keep a load on the straps and ratchets. Have someone with you to steady the motorcycle as you unwind the ratchets because you will need both hands to unwind each ratchet; the motorcycle will have a tendency to tip when one side of the forks is released but not the other.
I have a box of straps that I have accumulated over the years; these are easily the best and two of the four that I will surely dig out the next time I have a motorcycle to move.

Good strap but the spring loaded hook guards are weak and flimsy, bad quality on that part I am going to return them.

I've tied down my Harley with these straps for several thousand miles and they have never come loose. Built in soft ties are awesome with the spring loaded guard on the hooks. Same style straps everywhere else are double the price just for one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mmlake great product
Strong, easy to use as the rest but holds up great to pressure. I got this as an emergency replacement for another set and it worked perfect.
