Tie down straps


Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for some new heavy duty straps for trailering my atv.  Whats everyone using to tie down their atv while trailering?  3/4" , 1" , 1 1/2", 2" straps? 

I had a couple of cheap 3/4" straps break on me , all i had at the time, I felt pretty lucky pulling into the gas station with the quad still on the trailer.

Use quality ratchet straps. Avoid the push release gripper types.

For me redundancy is important. Some areas we haul into have rough roads. I use a minimum of 4 straps to secure a wheeler on a trailer. Never broke a strap but have had hooks pop off. When able, I'll bypass the hooks and run a strap through a D-ring and the wheeler attach point.

Actually, I prefer rope. The Navy taught me how to lash things down very securely with rope. However it takes time and my wife and kids won't be bothered to learn it.

I use 1" but the load info is important as anything. I have a hook welded on my trailer and my winch secures the front end to that and then I strap the back with straps I bought at Menard's 500# work load each. Love my idea for front with the winch. It ain't never coming lose from that!

I have several 1" & 2" tie down ratchet straps, but I recently picked up a set of 1-1/2" 5900 lbs.rating with the double J-hooks. A real nice set for quad tie down.

EDIT: I made a boo boo on the weight rating, noticed they are rated at 590 Kg (1300 lbs) :(

I've just recently switched to the Erikson ATV e-strap kit: http://www.ericksonmfg.com/product/atv-wheel-chock-and-tie-down-strap-kit/

I like it... no need to compress your suspension but holds the atv very securely and doesn't bounce slack into it.

 

I bought some of these they indeed do a bad as* job of holding quad down. Worth the price and peace of mind on my trailer during travel times!

I use 2 2" straps on opposite corners if just going around town, no long distance hauls or highway. If I'm going long distance then I'll use 4 2" straps and make sure it's centered on trailer correctly. If not you will know it when you get on the highway. If you do notice it swaying back and forth, stop and make it right. I have seen people think it will be ok I'm not going far. And the trailer ends up flipping. Just a reminder safety first.

      Hi all,
      Looking for some help on a starter/bendix issue. Can Am outlander 450 2017. While cranking to start, the starter spins and engages into the ring gear. After a few seconds the bendix retracts while still spinning and there is no damaged teeth on the drive pulley.

      I plan on using my ATV to hunt. What have you found to be the best method for carrying your rifle that is secure and allows removing quickly to pursue an animal?

      Sorry I suck at these forums so if you see this submitted under update status, my bad. Anyhow this is a new shock for a 96 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 it fits my 96 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 4x4 perfectly. Little narrower are the bottom than the original but everything else is perfect. I extended it to almost a half in from full extension because I’m pushing 350 pounds.  It rides and hold me well. So if any of y'allRace driven shock. have been looking for one and didn’t want to do the research here it is.
