BoatBuckle's second-generation transom tie-down straps bolt to the rear crossmember of your trailer and simplify the securing and unloading of your boat. These corrosion-resistant, stainless steel tie-downs are designed to keep constant tension on the strap and require minimal ratcheting to secure your load. Instead of always having to find and store tie-down straps that hook to the transom anchors on your boat, you will find that BoatBuckle's straps are always right where you need them. Just pull up on the hook and strap, attach the hook to the transom anchor, and then operate the ratchet several times. No more dealing with extra webbing or looking for the tie-down strap. And when unloading, simply push the release button on the ratchet, free the hook from the transom anchor, and let the strap retract back down into the ratchet.


Installation

These straps come with the mounting hardware that you'll need to install them. It is recommended that you use anti-seize (LT37616 - sold separately) to ensure that the nuts are properly tightened down over the bolts. You can mount the ratchets with the included bolts directly to the trailer frame or crossmember. If you need to angle the ratchet strap or move it a little farther off the frame, a universal mounting kit (IMF14254 - sold separately) is available.


Note: Transom tie-downs should always be used along with a winch strap and a set of gunwale tie-downs. All straps and cables should be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). To determine the maximum load, or break strength, of the strap, simply multiply the WLL by 3. The WLL is always one-third (1/3) of the maximum load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Perfect transom tie down. Being permanently bolted to the trailer removed the step of securing transom tie downs when you are coming and going.




by:

I received the Boat Buckles....the cheapest I could find that were made
of stainless steel.....I used them on my Jet-ski trailer that I had just installed the 5 ft galvanized bunk rollers on the carpeted bunks they were easy to install a little more difficult to adjust the rollers between the jet-ski hull chines but it worked out just perfect.

Stacy is the best customer service rep ever!

Seems like a very nice product.
I just
received them yesterday and installed today so I have zero hours on them but they seem like a quality product.
Super simple to install. Very easy to use as well.
I think I'm going to enjoy these straps for years to come.

Here are a few pics after installed.

One year later and I can honestly say these work as advertised. I would certainly install another set tomorrow if I got a new trailer. Great item.

Just finishing up total restoration of 1969 Cheetah and these transom tie-downs will make the launch and retrieval process much simpler and easier.
Straps were exactly as described. All stainless construction is beautiful and durable. Recoil and cinch mechanism work effortlessly.
Service was flawless.
Thanks for being a part of the Cheetah restoration.

I bought the SS ratchet tIe downs for my boat. Over the years I have used many different tie down and have found they rust and become unusable over a season or two and are cheaply made. The only advice I can give is stop buying the cheap tie downs and spring for the quality ones. The tie downs are of exellent quality and easy to install. They also retract so they are not ever lost.
Thanks

excellent quality and easy install stainless steel is the way to go.

The original boat buckles that I purchased came with defective nuts to secure the bolts to the trailer. The nuts froze when the outside end of the nutt reached the tip of the bolt. Luckily I had attached the boat buckles to universal brackets that I could remove from my trailer, but I could not detach the boat buckles from the brackets. etrailer sent me a replace set of boat buckles that had the same problem with the defective nuts. I tested the nuts and bolts from the replacement buckles before attaching them to the trailer and used other nuts and bolts to attach them. Beware of getting these stuck on your trailer with the defective nuts and bolts.

Top quality! Excellent service

Best tie downs ever.

I only gave this product 3 out of 5 stars because of the hardware associated with the boat buckles. I bought these to replace boat buckles on my boat trailer that were old and tired. I have always had great luck with these on my boat trailers and wouldn't replace them with anything else. The installation is normally extremely simple but not with this set. This set is the stainless version and it comes with stainless fine thread bolts and top lock nuts. I have had experience with fine thread stainless bolts before and knew their tendency for galling. I did not know how these top lock nuts would work with fine thread stainless and galling but I got out the antiseize anyway. I coated one bolt with antiseize and started installation very, very slowly. Heat started to build immediately every time you would turn the nut a few revolutions. I began the process of turning the nut a few times and then walking away for a while. Then I would come back and do it again. I made it half way and the bolt galled and completely locked down. Once this happens, it will not turn either direction. I knew this but tried anyway and ultimately had to cut the bolt off the trailer with a hacksaw. What a major pain! The instructions do not tell you anything about this problem either. I have experience with this issue and tried my best to prevent it and completely failed. The boat buckles are great. Do yourself a favor and throw the hardware in the trash. Get some coarse thread bolts and nylocks to replace the junk that comes with this product. You will thank me.


Comments
The boat buckles are fine. Hopefully the manufacturer will get that hardware issue resolved. I am sure it rubs some people the wrong way. For me, I just changed the hardware and moved on.

I have had the Stainless Steel (SS) Boat Buckles for a year. They installed easily and perform flawlessly. I find them much more convenient and just as strong as any tie-down I've used with my 1500 lb. boat. Reviews on other websites indicated that the SS bolts used to install them suffered from galling. So I cut them shorter to eliminate excess threading, chamfered the cut end, polished them, used lithium grease as lube and STILL suffered galling on one of them during installation. I cut it off, bought a new matching bolt, repeated the steps and it went on fine. My boat is used in both salt and fresh water; the Boat Buckles have not suffered corrosion and work perfectly. I highly recommend them


Comments
The stainless steel Boat Buckles I purchased from you last year work great. They are a LOT more convenient than traditional tie-down straps. The old straps left marks on the fiberglass transom because they had a metal buckle that rested against the transom. The Boat Buckles eliminate that problem and are always on the trailer. They tighten and release easily but hold securely. I purchased new stainless steel bolts for installation because the original boltsnuts galled before I could tighten them securely… even though I used lubricant on them before assembly. I had to cut them out with an angle grinder. The new SS bolts

The BoatBuckle retractable transom tie downs have been on my trailer for a year and continue to work perfectly. They were easy to install and even easier to use. No more fiddling around with the cam buckle straps to get the tension correct, great product.
Always a pleasure dealing with etrailer, the merchandise arrives in a few days and is exactly as ordered.


Comments
After a year the Boat Buckles work perfectly, great product.
MARK W - 06/21/2019

Product works better than I thought. After a year no sign of rust it works beautifully. I had been through two other sets of tie downs similar to these that they rusted in about 2 to 3 months and quit working properly not with this it works great thank you




by:

I can't believe that etrailer has done nothing in three years to address the problem of the mounting nuts and bolts being incorrect, and therefor useless. The bolt and nut have two different threads. I read where people had complained about this problem back as far as 2013 and yet etrailer has done nothing to fix the problem. I just received my boatbuckles and when I went to mount them I couldn't with the supplied hardware. I ended up going to a hardware store and spend around ten bucks to get the correct nuts and bolts to use to mount the buckles. I just can't understand why they're aware of the problem and continue to ship them with the incorrect fitting nuts and bolts. After about fifteen years of buying from etrailer, this is my last order. It's incomprehensible that they'd do this knowing the end user can't mount the parts without having to discard the parts they paid for in the package and have to go out and spend more money getting what you need to use the buckles. Unbelieveable!


Comments
Update to my review: Kudos to etrailer for getting this problem corrected at the source. Ive been informed that etrailer has taken this problem back to the supplier, IMMI, and they are in the process of sorting and inspecting all product in house for this defect. IMMI will get it corrected and implement a permanent corrective action to prevent another recurrence in the future, and etrailer will begin to monitor customer feedback with these types of concerns. To their credit, IMMI has sent me some replacement nuts and bolts that came threaded together to show they were correct to replace the defective ones that came with the BoatBuckles I purchased. I guess everyone can make a mistake, its a good company that corrects it and makes it right with the customer. Two thumbs up for etrailer and IMMI. Ill continue to do business with them in the future.

by:

The straps work great but the hardware that came with it did not work. The nut appears oblonged. I couldn't advance or back the nut off on the one bolt and had to cut it off.




by:

These seem to be pretty good so far, the Stainless steel version is the only way to go if they are exposed to outside weather, the bolts they send with it are good SS bolts, but bare in mind they are for single wall channel frame trailers and only 2" long, if you have a tube frame like mine you will need longer 3" ones from the hardware store, other than that there strong and easy to use once you get used to the ratchet and release process.


Comments
Still like the day they were put on after 1 year, I, originally gave the product 4 stars, because of the weird double handle ratchet system was confusing, but I, would give the product 5 stars for the reliability and quality.

by:

etrailer HAD this product I was looking for! Can't say that about alot of things these days!!




by:

The ratchet straps themselves work great! Seem to be good quality, and very easy to secure the boat to the trailer. Unfortunately, the mounting bolts that come with it seized up and would not tighten. We had to use our own bolts. This seems to be a problem that is already known. Hopefully they get this fixed. How hard is it to send hardware that actually works?


Comments
The ratchet straps work great! They are a lot easier to use than regular ratchet straps.
Chris O - 10/01/2018


by:

Hardware issue still.... although supposedly in the process of being fixed in Dec 2016. You are supposed to torq to 45 pounds. I lubed up the bolt. When my socket wrench would not turn the nut past the end of the bolt, I switched to an impact wrench. My impact wrench set at 100+ pounds would not turn the nut. I cut it off and went to the store for proper hardware. Since SS can be hard to find, I had to settle for grade 8.

Otherwise, the buckles are great... so far.


Comments
The buckles are still great. Such an improvement over any other boat tie-down Ive used in the past 40 years.
Gary W - 08/06/2018


by:

AS DESCRIBED. GREAT PRODUCT AT A GREAT PRICE. MAY NOT BE ABLE TO USE SUPPLIED BOLTS, BUT NO BIG DEAL. DUE TO MOUNTING POSITION ON THE TRAILER YOU PROBABLY HAVE TO USE LONGER BOLTS ANYWAY.
STILL A GREAT PRODUCT.


Comments
Love them. They work great. Much more convenient than the manual ones. Alittle pricey but good.

We replaced a poorly designed tie down system with BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratchet Transom Tie-Downs in Stainless Steel. The new tie downs were installed in less than one hour and are easy to tighten. Better yet, they release easily making the boat launch process a snap. I would recommend this device to anyone wishing to secure their boat with a corrosion resistant tie down.




by:

The packaging is very nice on this !




by:

I like the fact that I no longer have 3 different straps to untangle every time I load the boat (I have the boat buckle bow strap as well). These are neatly retracted and always ready to go. Install on the ez loader trailer frame was easy once I discarded the included lock nuts and went to a standard nylon lock nut. The mounting hardware included is stainless and good quality, but the included lock nuts are PERMANENT and stripped the threads. I had to cut them off with a saws all because the nut would not fully install. (No, they were not cross threaded ). I recommend the product, but do yourself a favor and throw the included lock nuts away and replace them with nylon lock nuts.

  • Are All Of The Metal Parts On The BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Tie-Downs Stainless Steel
    I called my contact at BoatBuckle and asked about the G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Down Straps # IMF14256. They told me the faceplate and springs in the tie-downs are stainless steel and the vinyl coated S-hook is stainless as well. The other internal parts are corrosion resistant. The replaceable parts for these tie-downs are the springs.

  • Replacement Stainless Steel Transom Tie-Downs
    I have a recommendation for you as the Tough Guy tie downs is not a brand that we carry, and in looking at their information it does not look like their straps are repairable. We have the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratchet Transom Tie-Downs # IMF14256 that have a stainless steel construction and also utilize a stainless steel spring to ensure long life and corrosion resistance. These are specifically designed for use in salt water so you know that they will hold up to the elements.

  • Recommended Transom Straps for 261 Cobia
    For transom straps for the stern of your 261 Cobia I recommend the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratchet Transom Tie-Downs # IMF14256. These straps have a stainless steel body and spring to resist rust and corrosion along with a vinyl-coated S-hook to protect your boat. They are self-retracting with a length of 43". From what I found, the transom on your boat measures no more than 30" so that should be long enough when mounted to the trailer frame.. However, I recommend measuring to be sure.

They told me the hook that attaches to the trailer on this system is zinc-coated for corrosion resistance, and the S-hooks are vinyl-coated to protect your boat finish.

  • Differences Between Boatbuckle Cargo Buckles # IMF08893 and # IMF14256
    The difference is the metal that the two straps are made of. The more expensive # IMF14256 is made of stainless steel which offers superior corrosion resistance whereas the part # IMF08893 is made of non-stainless steel and that is why it costs less.

  • Stainless Steel Transom Strap Recommendation for Boat Trailer
    For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead. Part # IMF14256, uses a stainless steel body that resists rust and corrosion. The S-hooks are a vinyl-coated steel like the hooks on the system you referenced, for protection of the boat finish. These do come with the mounting hardware. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out.

  • Transom Strap Recommendation for a 2,500 lb Boat
    You would want the Transom straps part # IMF08893 as it has a break strength of 2,500 lbs and a WLL of 833 lbs. Think of the breaking strength as the strength the strap has when in an emergency situation and the WLL as the amount of weight it can handle continuously. Since the strap wouldn't be supporting the full weight of your boat at all times the # IMF08893 would work well for yours that weighs 2,500 lbs.

  • Difference Between the Ratchet Straps # IMF14393 and the # IMF14256
    Realistically the only difference between the part # IMF14393 and the # IMF14256 is that the part # IMF14256 is sold in pairs and the part # IMF14393 is sold individually. Aside from that they have different intended uses but realistically they are the same ratchet setups. The pair is described as being for transom straps and the single is for the bow of the trailer.

  • Is BoatBuckle Transom Tie Down Suitable for a Bass Tracker Pro Team 175 TX at 1,300 Pounds
    Transom tie downs # IMF14256 have a break strength of 1,500 pounds and working load limit of 500 pounds. What this means is that it can have up to 500 pounds on it constantly and be fine. It is not really supporting the whole boat weight and you are likely using other tie downs, a winch cable, and so on so the transom tie downs will be adequate. If you are not using additional tie downs I do recommend it; such as # IMF14220.

    Yes, the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs # IMF08893 are designed to work on boat trailer that get submerged under water so they would do just fine being repeatedly submerged. For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead.

    I spoke with my contact at BoatBuckle regarding the difference in break strength between the G2 Ratchet Tie-Downs in Stainless Steel # IMF14256 and the Standard # IMF08893. He said the main reason the stainless steel model has a lower break strength of 500 pounds (compared to 833 pounds on the standard steel model) is that stainless steel is just a softer metal. This means that it's breaking point is going to come at a lower weight than a stronger standard steel design. The benefits...

    The big difference is that transom straps are sold in pairs like the # IMF14256 and the bow straps are sold individually like the part # IMF14220 you referened. The straps themselves are the same but basically it just comes down to the typicaly application difference being that transom straps use two and bow straps are single.

I wish there was a way to replace the strap but the best thing for you to do is to replace the units.

  • Availability of Boatbuckle Mini in Stainless Steel
    Boat Buckle doesn't offer an all stainless version of the Mini, as they do with the G2. On the # IMF106877 you referenced, the spring itself is stainless, but the remainder of the unit is constructed of plastic and steel. If a 4 foot ratcheting strap set-up would work for you, rather than the bolted in place Boat Buckle offers the # IMF12066 in stainless. If you were really wanting a bolted in place solution, the full-sized version # IMF14256 would work for you.
