This is a great product! Made well, easy to use, and very effective all makes these straps a must have for long yaks that extend beyond your roof/cab. I had them up and secure in about 2 minutes.....highly recommend! Combine these with some ACK hull straps and you'll get your stuff safely to the lake or ocean EVERY time!
Everything works fine except there is no rubber tubing the rope slips through to protect your vehicle from where the ropes constantly rubs. I had purchased another set somewhere else (I don't know where) and it included two 10" strips of tubing to pass the line through to protect your car.
Bought this on the reocmmendation of a buddy... COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. Die-Hard ratchet strap fan, but in order to properly secure my 15.5' boat to the top of my SUV it took 6 of them... pain in the @$$. These 2 straps and 2 ratchet ropes provide ample kayak-to-car security and elimate the chance of "lift-off" at high speeds. Takes about a third of the time ot tie my yak down = more fishing time Will never use ratchet straps for my yak again, might even buy another set of these because I like them so much.
Good overall package, ready to go. Added a section of bicycle inner tube as an insulator over the front hood; worked great, 800 miles @ 70 mph. Happy with the package.
