Secure your motorcycle or ATV to your truck or trailer with these tie-downs. Toothless cam buckles hold straps tight without damaging the webbing, and soft loops make it easy to attach the tie-downs to your bike. 1,200 lbs Max load.


  • Tie-down straps let you secure your motorcycle, dirt bike, or ATV to your truck bed or trailer
  • Toothless, convenient, and secure (TCS) tensioning cam buckles will not damage strap webbing
  • Strap can be pulled to desired length, yet will not feed back through buckle while in locked position
    • Simply pull release tab to loosen tension
    • Locks and stays tight
  • S-hooks secure to anchor points


  • Strap dimensions: 1" wide x 6' long
  • Maximum load strength (break strength): 1,200 lbs
  • Safe working load limit (WLL): 400 lbs
  • Quantity: 2 tie-down straps

Note: Tie-down straps must be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). The weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined WLL of the straps being used. For example, if you are using straps with a WLL of 500 lbs each to tie down a load weighing 1,000 lbs, then you need at least 2 straps to safely secure that load. It is recommended that you always use straps in pairs.

Each of these motorcycle tie-downs has a toothless, convenient, and secure (TCS) cam buckle. The buckle has a non-slip spring-loaded locking action that allows for quick and easy adjustment. The toothless design will not damage the strap webbing. With the buckle in the locked position, the end strap can still be pulled through the buckle to desired length. At no time will the strap back up through the buckle. The patented design only allows the strap to go one way. To release the lock, you simply have to pull the release tab and the load will quickly let loose. Whenever you have a situation where you have 2 solid points that won't move, the TCS buckle with over-the-center lock action works great. It locks tight and stays tight.

Not what I expected, but very secure and have a great loop on top end. They aren’t the regular cam lock pull to tighten straps, but the locking mechanism makes these very secure with no chance of slipping. Great straps!!

Not good. They slip and allow bike to be loose. Dumb luck that a bike didn’t fall over.
Todd W - 06/03/2022


Like much better than the ratchet straps, easy install very stable and quick release


I want to like these but they fail to work. The cleat action is great yet they fail to hold. After I got the first pair they seemed a great product so I ordered a second pair and have since used them several times. Each time transporting a sport bike on a open trailer in a chock. Each time they worked loose in about 10 miles. I checked and rechecked mounting and closing. Still they fail to hold. This was in dry weather on smooth roads. I have had to stop multiple times on 40 mile trips to re-secure them. This seems to be all 4 of them and not just 1 out of the 4 failing. A bike carried along at the same using another brand strap remained solid. So simply, they fail. They are dangerous to use for securing as they cannot be trusted to hold. What can I do with them now? I am not sure I would even use them to secure a load/luggage on my touring bike Most likely I will throw them away as I can't trust them. It is a great design but the manufacturer needs to revisit the engineering and materials used to evolve the product or take them off the market.


I have used a number of straps around the house and on my trailers but none have been as easy to use while holding as tightly as these. If you want to hold something tighter than a pull strap but almost as good as a ratchet strap then these are the ones to get. I will order more. Service from etrailer is the best.


The straps looked good at first but they did not hold the motorcycle at all. Had to use my older ratchet style. Almost lost bike off rack. Checked and re checked the tie down but the continually came loose. Thank goodness I had the ratchet straps.
In short they slip as you drive down the road.


Ordered 3 products on a Wednesday and received them the following Tuesday which was great. All products, the 5' E track, tie-off rings and tie down straps were just what I needed. I was glad that the straps were rated a 1200 lbs rather than 400 lbs. Just bought a 6 X 12 enclosed trailer recently and will definitely be using a lot more.


These are nice straps. I like the design of the soft loop. But the cam mechanism allows too much slippage, so they become loose when am driving on rough roads. My motorcycle weighs about 350 pounds, and I transport it on a trailer. Maybe the cam mechanism is strong enough for transporting a motorcycle in a pickup bed, but I am not able to use the straps with my motorcycle on the trailer.


Much like other recent reviews, I have had trouble with these straps. They come loose and I had to check and tighten them multiple times during transport. Now I have no confidence using them with my bike. I still use them for strapping down light gear on my trailer, but never with my motorcycle.


Honestly I am surprised to see good reviews for these. I was VERY excited to order them thinking they would be a good mix of pull-down and ratchet straps. Soon after I got them I had to pick up a dirt bike. I compressed the front springs some, pulled the strap tight and then locked the buckle. Seemed to hold very nicely ... until I was less than a mile away and the bike was almost falling over!!! After stopping 3 different times to retighten the straps, I finally gave up and put my trusty ratchets back on and had no further problems. Manufacturer states that it is IMPOSSIBLE for the strap to loosen ... that is obviously not the case. I bought 3 sets and have yet to even open the other 2 sets due to this experience. The quality seems nice, but the function is just not there. They may work OK for none dynamic loads, but they sure did not do the job against my stiff bouncing motorcycle suspension. I think the problem is that the rods in the buckle have no texture to grip the strap like pull downs usually do. Add some texture to help grab the strap and I think these could be really great.


I gave one of their representatives the tire size and told them that I have duel rotors on the front wheel of my motorcycle and want would be the best fit for a wheel chock. They gave me Item MT70271 and EMO5729. I had them express deliver so that I would have time to mount it on my trailer. It was a great, the easiest to assemble and mount and had plenty of clearance for the tire and rotors. It was simple who ever designed this item had a lot of thought put into it to work so well. Great help and product . Thank You again.


When I got the package I didn't quite know how to use the tie downs but after some experimentation found they work great. Thanks for a quality product.


Straps come lose within 15 minutes of travel. Completely unusable and dangerous.


Very good service. Appreciate that shipment was held because my mailing and shipping were very different. I was called to make sure the order was mine and everything was correct.
Delivery was completed in less than a week.
Thank you for your great service.


WowsersJust used these for the first time. Soooo much easier than regular tie downs with bar savers. I wish I had these ten years ago


Great, really like the soft tie built in for hauling dirtbikes.


Haven't used but looks good and ideal for carrying my motorcycle


Wheels were what I expected.

Doing the job as expected.

  • Wheel Chock for Transporting 2016 Suzuki Burgman Scooter in Ram Pickup
    The best fit is the Erickson # EM07506 Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock. You will also need tie down straps like Erickson # EM05729.

  • Solution To Carry Scooter With 2011 Ford Fusion Equipped with Class I Hitch
    Most of the scooter and cargo carriers require use with a Class III hitch. The reason for this is the combined weight of the the carrier and the scooter or wheel chair putting a great amount of torque on the hitch and vehicle frame. All of the hitches available for your 2011 Ford Fusion are Class I 1-1/4 hitches. What you could do is use a small utility trailer and mount a wheel chock like part # TWSPWM to the deck. You will want to make sure not to exceed the towing and tongue weight...

  • Will the MaxxTow Wheel Chock # MT70075 Fit a 2009 Honda Metropolitan Scooter
    I recommend the Tow-Rax Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM this wheel chock will fit tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide and is only 8-1/2 inches at its tallest point. Based on my research, the stock tires for the 2009 Honda Metropolitan are approximately 3-1/2 inches wide and 16 inches in diameter and should work well with this wheel chock. I also recommend tie down straps like the Erickson Soft Tie TCS Tie Downs, # EM05729. These straps will secure the bike while the wheel chock secures the front tire.

    Yes, the etrailer Motorcycle Carrier, part # e98873, would do an excellent job transporting your 50cc scooter. For securing your scooter to the carrier you might also be interested in the Erickson Tie-Downs part # EM05729. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Can the MaxxTow Adjustable Motorcycle Wheel Chock Hold a Honda Goldwing
    The Rack'Em Manufacturing Removable Wheel Chock # RA-17 does not have a weight capacity or a bike size limit. It is dependent on how it is mounted. For example if secured to a metal or solid wood floor using the proper fasteners for that material then it could handle a Honda Goldwing, no problem. With that said the chock will accept tires that are up to 6-1/2 inches wide so nothing larger than that would fit. I do recommend additional supports such as tie downs # EM05729. You would not...

  • Will RackEm Removable Wheel Chock Work with 2009 Goldwing Trike
    The Rack'Em Manufacturing Removable Wheel Chock # RA-17 is a great choice and what I recommend for securing your 2009 Goldwing to your trailer. This wheel chock will hold tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide. You will need to add additional tie-downs like the Erickson # EM05729 to secure the bike into place, as you do not rely on the chock alone to safely support it.

  • Fit and Compatibility of MaxxTow Carrier with a 2009 Yamaha Zuma 125 with a 2012 Toyota Sienna
    Great news! The etrailer carrier # e98873 you were looking at will be a good fit for your 2012 Toyota Sienna and Yamaha Zuma 125. I was able to look up your 2009 Yamaha Zuma 125 and found that the overall width was 30.1 inches, assuming this is the handle bar spread, the etrailer # e98873 will give you the clearance necessary to be compatible with your Sienna.

  • Front Hitch for 2006 Chevy Silverado to Transport Scooter
    For a front hitch for your 2006 Chevy Silverado the Draw Tite part # 65028 is a confirmed fit that would work well. It has a 500 vertical weight capacity so it would be rated high enough for your Zuma 125, but there are a couple things you need to consider. This setup may end up blocking air flow to your radiator as well as blocking the front license plate. For a couple tie downs you would want the part # EM05729 as well. The # e98873 you referenced would do well to carry your scooter.

  • Best Way Carry Dirt Bike With 2008 Jeep Compass
    Although the Draw-Tite Class III # 75712 has a 525 lb tongue weight capacity, the capabilities of the hitch will be limited by the capabilities of the vehicle its installed on. If the vehicle manufacturers stated tongue weight capacity is lower than that of the hitch, you will need to abide by the lower rating. I cannot recommend exceeding Jeep's stated tongue weight capacity, as exceeding it could cause the attachment points between the vehicle and the hitch to fail. A better solution...

The hitch will carry the 250 lb. dirt bike, but you will want to check what the front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) is on your 2007 Chevy 2500 HD.

    The Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033 carrier you'd looked at could work for you, if the tires on your Vespa aren't wider than 5 inches. One thing to keep in mind, scooters like your Vespa have a very strong weight bias to the rear. You'll want to load the scooter on the carrier so that the weight is evenly distributed, which means that the scooter will not be centered on the carrier, which is fine. You'll also want to ensure that the weight of your scooter plus the weight of the carrier (the...
