Types of Tie-Down Straps

Two-inch tie-down straps are a good choice for medium to heavy load. Here are the key differences between the main designs of tie-down straps:

  • 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.

Soft Loops and Loop Straps

They facilitate tying down loads that have unusual tie down points or areas prone to scratches or damage. 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

There are multiple hook ends available. You will find that two-inch straps tend to come with different hook end systems because they suit a range of applications:

  • 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.
