    These “light duty” straps from macs custom tie downs (far right) are beefy AF. Very obvious increase in quality when you’re paying $10 per strap and they’re made in America.

    I used to use this style of tie down growing up and I much prefer it over ratcheting ones. Just so damn easy to use and still plenty strong. Minimum breaking strength on these is 2,800 lbs.

    Nice! I'll have to start replacing mine as they go out, ratchet and cam.

    To each their own, but I'm not big on the cam style. You're fine with lighter stuff, but I've had them slip while hauling motorcycles. It wasn't much, but yeah. I only use ratcheting. I understand why people don't like them, but after using them to tow for a few years, I'm more partial to them.

    Maybe you just had lower quality straps? We used this style on our dirt bikes for years and years. It’s great because you don’t really need to worry about over tightening. I agree though that ratcheting have their place. They’re better for heavy cargo in the bed. I got these straps specifically for strapping stuff down on the rear seat platform.

    You're fine with what you're using them for. I only used to buy Ancra straps. At the time, they were considered the best straps sold. I think they were like $40 a strap. I have no idea if they are anymore.

    That’s what I figured! At some point I’ll buy some ratcheting ones from them as well. Maybe stimulate them a lil
