Frequently Asked Questions
Tie Down Straps
- How do loop straps work?
These straps are best used to secure a kayak or canoe to a car rack, or to secure the lid on a cooler. You receive two pieces. The first is a short 1’ section with a buckle on one end and a loop on the other. The second piece is longer (depending on what size strap is ordered) with a loop on one end and a tongue on the other. The loop ends can be secured around a frame or car rack. The buckle and tongue can then meet up to secure your load down.
- How many straps do I need to secure my frame to my boat?
See our Strap Guide for minimum strap requirements.
- When would I need to use the 1.5'' width strap?
1'' straps will work for most applications; 1.5'' straps are best for strapping one or more boats to a trailer, the greater width causes less dig into the boats.
