Video Transcript for Erickson Rope Ratchet Tie Down Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson Rope Ratchet tie down, rated at 250 pounds, part number 01801. This ratcheting rope tie down has a wide variety of uses from strapping kayaks and small boats to the roof of our vehicle, kind of acting as a bow and stern strap, or if you're going to secure maybe an ATV or UTV on your trailer or bed of your pickup truck or any other smaller items that need to be secured. It has a 3/8-inch diameter nice heavy duty rope. It has a special woven design for maximum strength and durability. It has a 250-pound working load limit. You can see it comes with these 2 silver hooks. These just are going to allow you to quickly and easily attach and detach from a connection point, so that you're not tying the rope around something or looping it around. This is the ratcheting mechanism. Now, the ratcheting mechanism kind of acts like a pulley that has a stop on it and then locks in place, so basically, you just pull this strap really tight, secure your gear in place, and then, that lock inside this housing is going to prevent the rope from loosening up.

To release it, we'll just push forward on this silver tab. You can see then that way I can freely loosen or tighten the strap depending on what application I'll be using it for. Now, we'll go ahead, we've got a kayak up on the roof of a vehicle here behind me, and we'll just this to secure the rear of the kayak to the rear of the vehicle. Now, we're going to hook to the loop here on our kayak, but we're going to make sure that the pulley or the locking mechanism is at the top, so that way we can pull downward on the strap, which is going to tighten it. Then, we'll just take the remaining hook and hook it here on our safety chain loops on our hitch, and then, we'll pull the end of the rope downward, which is going to tighten the 2 ends together, securing the rear of our kayak to the rear of our vehicle. With the rear of our kayak secured, that'll complete today's review of the Rope Ratcheting tie down from Erickson, which is rated at 250 pounds, part number 01801. .

Best product

This product work very well no problem any thing.
Lisa R - 08/31/2022


great product works as advertised, I use the Erickson tie down/ratchet to hold television gear on my cart....once the Erickson is on and reefed down....nothing moves!! When working in NYC, many buildings won't let you roll gear through with bungee cords as tie downs...this product is the perfect solution!!


I have ordered approximately 8 of these ratcheting tie-downs and two of them have failed. Etrailer replaced the first one but claims the other is out of warranty. With a 25% failure rate I would not reccommend these ratcheting tie-downs or etrailer to a friend


These ratchet tie downs are even better than the original ones that came with the Thule roof racks. The only complaint is that the rope could be one or two feet longer as I can only use them in the rear of my vehicle not the front.


The tie down ropes w/Ratchets are well made and will work great for securing our kayaks. I am sure they will be easier to use than the tie down straps I am currently using. They shipped in the same carton as my bike rack, so the upgraded shipping and customer service has been great for them as well. Thanks, George J.


I actually took the 'buckle' from the rope and used it on my boat cover rope. I had replaced (rethreaded) the rope and need a tightening feature. Works great and don't have to strain when pulling through the buckle. And the release feature makes it easy to remove the cover.

Due to a severe hail storm, I had to replace my boat cover. However, I removed the buckles and am saving them for another use. At present they are in my tool box. Up till the storm, I couldnt have been satisfied more. Ease of tightening rope and the release feature was great.

These types of tie downs are not easy to find. I was happy to order them at a great price. They are easier to use than standard ratchet straps with the easy thumb release. The rope pull tightening system is easier than ratcheting too. Great for securing a kayak.


Outstanding service! I've purchased tires, brake drums / shoes, rope tiedowns and other items. Always great communication and fast delivery.


The past Ericksons I've used were excellent. The great thing is how happy I am with etrailer who always have fantastic service, supper fast processing and even faster shipping. Great packaging always ensures damage free arrival of my order. Almost always the lowest price too. Thanks again. Mike R.


Great Tie-Downs! 8 ft. is all I need for my Dodge Dakota but the fact that you can pull the 8 ft out and replace with any length 3/8 inch braided nylon rope, is Fantastic! I think the next 2 I order, I'll replace the included rope with 15 ft. Great Product!


The 15 / 5 on 5 wheels I ordered were great. The packaging was heavy duty and they arrives without a scratch.


I love my ratchet straps.
They are SO
EASY to use.
I keep three in my truck at all times!!!
Thank you for such a great product!


The tie downs were very well made. I had purchased this type before and was glad to learn these were a better quality.

The service is friendly,and knowledgeable.



It works very well, especially for people who have limited use of one hand. My dexterity is shot in one hand and this tool males it all work fine.


These tie downs are the easiest to use.
We had a set of these but could no longer find them in stores in our area. E-trailer had them at a reasonable price and shipped them to our office in 3 days.


My husband was very happy with the tie downs. Thank you.


Great communication and an awesome buying experience. They were able to upgrade my shipping at no extra cost to me. Thanks for providing me with a great product and treating your customers above and beyond what's expected, especially these days.


These are quick and easy to use, beats using ratchet straps.


Great tie down!


Work great! Use them once a week for over a year and they are still like brand new!


This product works great. I bought a set for my husband and father.


Really have not used this yet. Going to use it as a jet ski tie-off to a dock instead of using a rope. Saw someone doing this and it worked and made it a lot easier.


These work great, easy to connect and stay where they are put. I also like that if you need a longer one just buy the length of rope needed and change it. It is very easy to change.


Knot slips too easy.


Great product use it alot

  • Can Erickson Tie-Down Rope w/ Ratchet # 01801 Be Used Outside
    The Erickson Tie-Down Rope w/ Ratchet # 01801 that you referenced does feature a corrosion-resistant housing but the inner components of the ratchet are not rust proof. The unit can certainly be used outside but you may just want to position the ratchet in a way that prevents water from seeping inside the housing if it will be used on a cover for long-term storage. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • What are the Dimensions of Erickson Rope Ratchet Cargo Tie Downs part # 01801 and part # 01800
    Yes the Erickson rope ratchet tie down # 01800 is smaller. It is 7-1/2 feet long, 1/4-inch in diameter and rated at 150 pounds maximum load limit. The Erickson rope ratchet tie down # 01801 is slightly bigger at 8 feet long, 3/8-inch diameter and a load maximum of 250 pounds. I also included a couple videos for you as well.

  • Tie Down Recommendation for Securing a Harley to Bed of Truck
    I have a much better solution for you, but I would not recommend the Erickson Tie-Down Rope w/ Ratchet # 01801 for securing a Harley to the bed of a truck. Instead I would recommend the Erickson Tie Down Set part # EM31352 that comes with 4 ratcheting straps that would work great for what you are trying to do. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Can Erickson Ratcheted Tie-Down Ropes be Used to Secure Lumber on Roof of a 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx
    I would not recommend a rope tie down such as # 01801 for transporting lumber on the roof of your 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx. Using ratchet straps such as # EM04418 provides more surface area contact with the wood and you can get them tighter than # 01801. If you were to use # 01801 or something similar I would recommend putting eye bolts in the ends of each piece of wood on each side, running the rope through those, and securing the rope at the front and rear of the vehicle. Then you could...

  • Recommendations on How to Safely Carry 12 Foot Jon Boat on Roof of 2013 Hyundai Tucson
    A great choice would be a Inno Square bar roof rack, which would be made up of the following parts: 54 inch square profile crossbars part # INB137 Inno Feet for Crossbars, part # INSUT Vehicle specific clamp kit, part # INK605 To secure the boat to the roof, using ratchet straps like # IMF14256 hooked over the crossbars would provide a secure hold for the boat. Using foam blocks like # MPG152 would protect the roof rack from the boat and vice versa, as well as adding some friction to...
