How ShockStraps Work
ShockStraps are a patented, unique urethane based shock absorbing tie down made to keep tension on the strap and your load secure.
When road vibrations cause loads to shift and settle, other tie downs can loosen and become unsafe.
Under these conditions, ShockStrap stretches and contracts acting like a shock absorber keeping your load secure.
Even in extremely rough road conditions you won’t have to pull over to make sure that your tie downs are secure.
With over 100,000 satisfied clients and 20 years of secure loads, ShockStraps are built to last.
ShockStrap would like to welcome our newest dealer, Canadian Tire. ShockStraps are now available throughout Canada including our best selling 7' ratchet strap dual pack. Stop by and get a pair today!

Customer Product Reviews
Huge shoutout to you guys. Bought two straps from Canadian tire to see what the hype was all about. Going to buy another set come spring. Maybe two more as well. It's holding my diesel Brutus down easily. It starts strapped and stays strapped for sure. Love the length of them too and the clips are so much better than just the simple hooks on my other straps. Thank you for doing what you do. - Trent Woolsey
My name is Chuck. I bought two of your shock straps over a month ago. I went on a 2700 mile trip hauling my tubo RZR, using your straps. Not once did the straps come loose. We had some good roads and some bad roads. Your straps worked better than I ever thought they would. Good product. Very happy customer. Chuck in Oregon. - Chuck K.
Hi Fred, I've been meaning to send you these pics for a long time. Got your strap at the overland expo. It works great to ease the load when we have 4 bikes hanging off the end of our EarthRoamer. This is our third bike rack. This time we bought a oneup...which is supposed to be very strong, but we added your strap just in case. The give in the strap helps to ease the stress on the rack especially when we are bumping along a dirt road. - Ruth Van Sciver
Another satisfied customer: Here is my 1984 Honda V65 Sabre all safe and secure ready for the trip home to Rice,MN. We arrived safe and sound with no worries. I love my ShockStraps! Scott J. - Scott Jerve
I have been using these in our delivery trucks for Bill's Ace Hardware for many years. These straps have saved many BBQ's from heavy traffic. The quality is fantastic and we have never had a failure. - Bill Wygal

Tie down straps, sometimes called ratchet straps, are used to secure motorcycles, utvs, atvs, boats, side-by-sides, lawn mowers, and other heavy loads to a pull-behind trailer, a bed of a truck, or semi-trailer.
Once you are ready to unload your UTV, motorcycle or other load you will need to release the tension on your ratchet trailer straps. There are two main type of release mechanisms on a ratchet strap:
Here’s how to use a ratchet strap: 1) Connect the hook to your vehicle on the ratchet side. 2) Run the webbing from the long end through the opening on the spindle below the handle of the ratchet. 3) The long end of the strap webbing with the hook is then put over your load to secure it.
