When you secure your cargo with ShockStrap, you do not need to tighten the ratchet to the very last click, your cargo is secure once the urethane piece is engaged. To engage the urethane piece, tighten your straps until the webbing is “guitar string tight“, and then stop ratcheting. There will still be room between the safety strap and urethane piece, and your hand will be able to fit between the two.
Our 2” ShockStrap Ratchet Safety Strap has an industry leading 2 year warranty and a breaking strength of over 6000 lbs. The Ratchet Safety Strap is built with a commercial grade ratchet, 2” black Polyester webbing, integrated soft ties, double steel hooks, and our unique flexible ShockStraps.
We incorporated a Safety Strap on one side of the ShockStrap for two very important reasons: first, if a catastrophic accident happened and the ShockStrap were to break, the Safety Strap would keep the tie down tight and your load secure; second, the Safety Strap also acts as a limiter so you won’t over-tighten or put undue stress on your load.
Our 2” Polyester webbing has a 8000lb breaking strength and the overall Ratchet Safety Strap has a 2000LBS working load limit. The commercial grade ratchet has an outside release for ease of use even with gloves on. It is bolted on so you can replace it in the future and keep your investment working. We continue to use Polyester webbing because it has superior attributes, it stretches less, is more resistant to rot and mildew, has a higher strength rating and a softer feel in your hands.
We doubled the hooks and added a yellow zinc chromate finish which offers better weather resistance and durability compared to standard chrome plating. Next to each hook there is an integrated soft loop to use when the hook won’t fit. You can wrap the soft loop around an axle or handlebar and pull it tight against the hook.
ShockStraps are made from a proprietary formula and are not affected by most chemicals, sunlight, oil, salt water, fungus or moisture. The strength of our product comes from the ability of the ShockStrap to maintain constant pressure on the strap when hitting bumps or having side pressure applied to it. You won’t be pulling over every 50 miles or at a gas station break to retighten ShockStraps.
