Just want to give you some info about two quads on a trailer and a 40 mile dirt road from hell. The road was supposed to be very trailer compatible. 10 miles in one quad with “shock straps” and one with standard straps were checked. The shock strapped quad was fine and still holding tight on the trailer, while the standard strap quad was loose unstrapped and bouncing into the other quad.
Re strapped the loose one and on the way again, thought it was our fault for it coming loose. Checked again within two miles and loose again, after 10 times checking over the next ten miles it was loose or undone each check.
Finally pulled one quad off and used the shock straps to hold just one down and rode the other out the next 20 miles so the truck, trailer and quad on the trailer could get out in one piece. With the shock straps on the one quad it stayed strapped down for the next 20 miles with no issues!
Well my hunting partner is a believer and I ordered him 4 straps and me some more too, I don’t want to be caught without them.
Thanks for a great product

I met you at the bikefest show in Las Vegas, not sure if you remember me, I gave you our card for the VIHOG rally in Victoria, B.C. Anyway…i got a story for you. I bought the two straps off you at the show. We left Las Vegas and headed to Palm Springs after bikefest. Along the way, we hit a very serious dip in the road, my trailer bounced like a cork in water, and I was quite worried about my bike in the back (2014 Electraglide). When I got a chance to pull over, I could see a dent in the side door of the trailer from the inside out. Opened the door and my bike was on its side in the trailer. It popped out of the wheel chock and fell on its side, went through the plywood of the door and made a dent in the metal. Not a single scratch on the bike by the way, not sure why or how…but thank god.
I had the bike tied down with two ratchet straps on the front and your two shock straps on the rear… and I’m sure you’re not gonna be surprised to hear me say this, but of the 4 straps, yours were the only two still attached. The bike bounced up badly enough to lose the two ratchet straps completely. I think the only thing they saved my bike entirely is the fact that I had the two shock straps on the rear. So of course naturally I regretted not getting four of your straps. So guess what I need now? You got it…two more black 10ft straps please! And thank you for convincing me to try them… I’ll never be without again.
I’m a huge fan! And I’m telling everybody I know….so I really really hope you guys make the rally next summer, you’ll do well. In the mean time, I’ll promote you here. Thanks again guys. Please feel free to contact me and use my story if you wish. I’m happy to let everyone know whet an awesome product you have. Cheers
R&K Hunting standardized on ShockStraps over 6 years ago. With 50 guides and over 450 hunts a year throughout the West, we rely on quality products that stand the test of time. Shockstraps work as advertised. They are used in every way you can imagine: from strapping down our UTVs to keeping trophies secure when we are done with our hunts. Our guides like ShockStrap because of the ease in setting them, their durability, and the security of knowing they won’t come loose while driving over washed out trails.

We have been using Shockstraps to tie everything down, from my motorcycle to everything in the back of my trailer when heading off to go deer hunting. They are better than advertised. Even my wife can use them!

I have been using the Shock Strap for about 7 years now and it is the only strap I use. Years ago I had a 4 wheeler on a trailer and the straps came loose and it fell off and was destroyed. This wouldn’t of happened if I would of had my ShockStraps. I recommend them to all my friends and family.

On my recent deployment to Afghanistan I discovered the many uses of “Shock Strap” tie down straps in the operational combat environment. My ODA (Operational Detachment Alpha) was supplied with several heavily armored vehicles equipped with at least one heavy machine gun along with other necessary gear essential for mission success. Due to the amount of heavy weaponry on each vehicle as well as the intense environment we were operating in, it was necessary on average to include approximately 20,000 rounds of ammo per vehicle as well as food, water, demo, medical supplies, and numerous miscellaneous objects.
When we initially started to attempt to strap all of these supplies on our vehicles we encountered numerous obstacles. We initially tried bungee cords but had little luck due to their minimal strength. We then tried ratchet straps but due to the awkward shape and constant shifting of the gear we were loading, they proved to be equally useless. I had remembered hearing about Shock Straps and decided in a last ditch effort to give them a try.
The Shock Straps were an immediate solution to our problem of securing our gear. The ability to flex and stretch enabled us to keep the load both tight and secure. We also found them very easy to use with minimal effort required to properly secure even the biggest loads. The most important advantage I found them to have though was the ability to quickly remove them. During my deployment I found myself more than a few times trying to get quick access to our ammo and reload our machine guns. The quick release of the shock strap was a lifesaver that neither a bungee cord or ratchet strap could rival. Overall I believe Shock Straps were a valuable asset to our mission success.

I have been using your Shockstraps for the past several years. I frequently travel the bumpy desert. Ratchet style straps did not hold down my ATV’s, and have caused some damage when tightening and bouncing up and down. The Shockstraps eliminated this problem as they do not dislodge under these conditions. I’ve never lost one and they work down to below zero. Thank you for this great product!

I have used my ShockStraps for years to tie down my ATV in the back of my truck. They are easy to use and they always stay in place!

I used to get frustrated trying to use ratchet straps. With Shockstraps I just pull down and forget it. Simple, strong and I swear by them.

Shockstraps are the best straps I have used to lock down my Polaris UTV. They work like they are advertised to do. What more can you ask for?
