Comments: Good product but the SS bolts they provide with locking nut is junk. Cannot tighten more than 2-3 turns before it seizes on the bolt. If you buy them, pick up some Grade 8, 7/16 x 1-1/2 bolts, washers, lock-washers, and nuts. Had to use a monster ratchet and wrench to finally get the first one off. Please note that I did not cross-thread the bolt. I think it is the lock-nut and not the bolt, but whatever I am not putting anything on with them. Cost about $7 for the replacement hardware.

Comments: This is the only way to tie down the transom of your boat. Quit fighting your Rod Buckle transom straps and get these. You will not be disappointed. The boat ramp has enough stresses, don't let this be one of them.

Comments: These might seem a little high priced but are well worth it. Super fast and secure and saves time on the ramp and no more pinched fingers...

Comments: I was recently in a serious wreck hauling my Triton 19 explorer on the Florida Turnpike. A truck swerved into my lane and slammed on the brakes. Approximately one second after applying my brakes I smashed into him at 60 mph the entire front support of my trailer broke off including the 4 bolts that secure the U bolts. The Motor toter broke in half and the boat slid approximately two feet on the bunks. These straps are all that held the boat on the trailer. The Trooper told my buddies if not for these straps the boat would surely have crashed through the back window of my truck or flipped on top of us. Thank you for a Great product!!!!
