I want to buy these so I have them on hand for when I do need them.


I saw that Keeper is a good brand. Any others? I was going to check out Home Depot for these.


I don't trust bungie cords.

getting a good set is what you want. 1 1/2" wide or so. Don't get the narrow ones. When you look at HD you'll be able to tell the quality just by looking at them

I just look at the construction. How heavy are the straps? compare them. The 1" wide straps are usually thin and I don't care for them at all.

I've purchased my last several packs of these at Sam's club. They seem to always have a set that heavy. Don't see anything on their site that matches what I've bought before

I have at least 50 of the stupid things...long story. By far, my favs are PowerTye. They were the only ones that would hold our dirt bikes in place on the trailer, no matter how hard we drove. I had my WR strapped to the trailer with Home Depot straps, in a rain storm. The bike ended up on the pavement with about $1500 damage.

Having said; any ratchet strap is just fine with you regular junk you need to secure in your bed. Bike straps get stressed.

I was looking at those too on the HD site.

As long as you remember edge protection when strapping down sharp bits, most any ratchet strap does ok.

I probably won't be strapping down anything that is sharp edged. This was mainly box a box that has my bedcover in it. But apparently from my friend I can put it in my truck at an angle. He called me blondie for not thinking it through. :arg:
