Looks a solid, useful product
on 29 March 2016
Looks like a really solid product, though so far I've only used them to strap stuff down in my van rather than on the bike. They certainly worked well there, the loops can be threaded through and looped to things like seat mounts or the van frame without the damage caused by the usual metal hooks found on ratchet straps. The buckles look pretty tough, though I've had ones like these break before now, but I'll certainly be using them on the up-coming bike trip.
Used them to hold down 3 weeks luggage for 2 people on my bike trip round the Adriaitic. It was the most weight I've ever carried on a back rack in 45 years of biking and it didn't move at all, even when we fell off at some lights! The most impressive bit was when I had to use them to strap down the bike on the ferry to Albania, after the crew gave me just two pieces of thick string for the job. It was quite a rough crossing and we didn't sleep much for worrying, but the bike didn't move at all...upgraded review to 5 stars now!
