    All the bungee cords I got are pretty light weight and the ends don't really fit the bed cleats that well. What's everyone else using?

    Agree, they are indeed dangerous!.
    I would sooner use a rope.

    I have some of these too and I really like em. BUT, because of the mechanism, u can’t really get things super tight. Also, paracord in a traditional ratchet style tie down is infinitely useful.

    I refuse to use a bungee cord ever.

    My old neighbor and his now glass eye are why.

    Totally depends on the load, distance to travel and travel terrain. I find the HF straps adequate; don't really need a ratchet feature for a light load.

    Straps instead of bungys for sure. I bought auto-retractable ones made by Erickson or Reese a few years ago and they’re the best i’ve ever used...
