    Every boat should come with BoatBuckles

    I also bought the transom hold downs, and once I bought them I would never have a boat without them. It makes loading/unloading so much simpler and I don't have to find them...Read complete review

    I also bought the transom hold downs, and once I bought them I would never have a boat without them. It makes loading/unloading so much simpler and I don't have to find them in the truck at the end of the day, they are always there. I used to use a separate strap to insure the bow stayed held down, if you have ever had a winch strap break you would know why. Now the bow is just as easy as the transom.

    HOLDS GOOD

    USE IT AS A SAFETY TO HOLD DOWN BOW. IT HOLDS IT DOWN NICE AND SNUG. SOMETIMES THE RELEASE DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY. STILL WORKS WELL THOUGH.

          This is the best Tie-Down I have found. I like that it is attached to trailer. Never have to look for ties. Very strong. Bought my 2nd for new boat.

                • Q:

                  I noticed on your web site that the extension on the strap is 14" to 43"....On all the other sites I have looked at for this product they do not list a minimum extension (14") Why do I need it that long? It looks like 8" would work.

                    Hello Harry,

                    The BoatBuckle G2 will retract down to 7". The 7" is from the screw hole underneath the ratchet to the inside of the hook.

                    Thank you,
                    Steve

                    David, the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Tie-Down has a hole on the back side and comes with a nut, bolt and washer. You permanently mount the tie-down with the hardware to a hole or an eye on your trailer. If you have any other questions, you can e-mail us through our website at www.boatbuckle.com.

                    A:

                    It bolts to the trailer directly under the wench hook on your boat. My trailer already had a spot for such a thing so I did not have to drill any holes. If you trailer does not have a hole pre-drilled, you'll need to drill one. The bolt that comes with the tie down is plenty long to go thru trailer tubing.

                    A:

                    Luckily my trailer had an angled support with a hole in it I could attach this to. If it had not been for that they provide you a bolt long enough to fit through a 4" trailer but they expect you to drill through both sides of the trailer to put the bolt through which is not impossible but will require a nice sharp bit and some patience.
