    Shock Absorbing Tie Down Straps

    I've never seen these before, (I'm guessing many of you have though). I just thought they are a great idea, maybe not for a tractor but for ATV's

    Never heard of them before so never used them either. And because of the price...never will.

    Bad Idea

    I wonder what DOT thinks of these. I see way to many ATVs and other equipment not tied down at all!

    To me, a tie down that has give built in to it kind of defeats the idea of securely fastening your load. I always tie my loads down using a solid point, non-sprung part of the vehicle, that way I am solidly secured, no give anywhere.

    They are physically large which is a good thing with a price point to match which really isnt. I wonder where they are made. I looked but didnt see manufacter origin anywhere which is kind of strange.

    You know I never had a strap come off no matter how many bumps but...after watching some of the videos. That looks like a good idea for ATV's, bikes ect. But I've never strapped down a bike so I don't know.

    It can happen. Back in the day I trailered motocross bikes thousands of miles. On one of the early hauls I didn't have the forks pulled down quite enough and while going slowly back a dirt road the one trailer wheel dropped into a deep hole. It caused one of the straps to unhook from the handlebar and the bike fell over on the trailer, denting the gas tank.

    From then on I pulled those straps down gorilla tight and never had any more issues.

    I'm not sure if straps like these would have helped. I know some guys would put a wooden block between the top of the front tire and the underside of the front fender to prevent the forks from compressing.

    Them are some crappy hooks for the price point.

    I tried a similar set of straps with hooks just like them. However they didn't have the shock absorber. Used them to tie down the front of my tractor. At the first stop I found the one side fell off and was just laying on my trailer.
