Since ShockStrap was founded in 1998, ShockStrap has been an industry leader in creating safe and reliable products that allow customers to have peace of mind when traveling and hauling cargo.
The original founder of ShockStrap, Mike Knowlden, had the vision to transform the tie down industry. He designed, integrated, and manufactured the original cam version of ShockStrap which is still sold today. When Fred Gill, the current owner of ShockStrap, saw the concept at a trade-show in the early 2000s, he immediately bought four and enjoyed many years of use out of them. When he found out the company was for sale, he purchased the company in 2012, because he loved the company and knew he could stand behind the products. Since then, ShockStrap has grown dramatically with multiple patents and many new variations of the original cam straps.
The product line now includes 1,500 Ib cam straps, 3000 lb. and 6,000 Ib. ratchet straps, which were created after years of industry research and listening to what customers wanted in a quality strap. Other versions have also met customer needs around the world, such as our E-Track and US made, military grade ShockStraps. The new US made, 3000 lb. and 10,000 lb. ratchet straps have even allowed ShockStrap to work with the United States Military in exciting ways!
ShockStrap has grown to be the trusted strap of users around the world. Our entire team is thrilled to have the ability to solve users’ tie down problems and sell a quality product that customers trust. We appreciate every sale and love that our customers are customers for life!
Thank you for all your support throughout the last several years, we could not have grown without the support of our users, dealers, and team!
