1" Tie Down Straps

Tie down lighter loads with affordable one-inch tie down straps from Discount Ramps! Snap hooks, S-hooks, ratchet, cam, and buckle designs are available in many different lengths so you will be able to find the straps that perfectly fit your needs!

Types of Tie-Down Straps

One-inch tie down straps are more likely to be found among lighter-duty options, and can more easily be worked around loads.

  • Bungee Cords are very light duty and should not be used for securing a load. Use them to keep gates closed, or hang light items in your garage.
  • Lashing Straps are light duty, with a break strength of around 220 lbs. Use with small loads.
  • Cam Buckle Straps are medium duty, with a break strength of up to 1,500 lbs. Use with loads like dirt bikes or ATVs. Easier to tighten and release than a ratchet strap.
  • Ratchet Straps are heavy duty, with a break strength of up to 15,000 lbs. Ideal for solid, heavy loads.

One-Inch Soft Loops and Loop Straps

They facilitate tying down loads that have unusual tie down points or areas prone to scratches or damage. One-inch soft loops are ideal for motorbike handlebars as metal strap ends can anchor to them without touching the paint. Under hood loop straps have an eyelet that fits over a bolt under your hood and a loop for anchoring metal strap ends so they won't be directly touching your truck or car.

Types of Hook Ends

Although one-inch straps are probably more likely to have S-hooks, there are multiple hook ends that are designed with specific purposes:

  • S-Hooks fit most holes and are the most standard type of hook end.
  • Snap Hooks have a latch that snaps closed to provide a more secure grip than an S-Hook.
  • J-Hooks, or wire hooks, are used on one end of a ratchet strap to tightly grip the anchor point.
  • Flat Hooks are low profile and anchor to the rub rail of a trailer or other tie down straps.

Why Bungees Are a Bad Idea

Most bungee cords are not weight rated. If they are used as tie downs for hauling a load, which we never recommend, a sharp bump in the road could pop them out of place and dump your load. They are also one of the leading cause of severe eye injuries1 because if they slip under tension they can snap back and cause traumatic ocular damage.
