I bought a couple packs of these and am not too crazy about them. Three out of the four I received give a little bit, which means they won't secure anything to a vehicle very well. One gives several inches when strapping something to the roof, so I wouldn't recommend them for anything that requires critical strapping such as items on a luggage rack on your car.

I would instead recommend this lashing strap: ProGrip 312610 16' x 1" Standard Duty Ratchet with Flex Grip Handle and Endless No Hooks/Lashing

At first glance they looked like a great deal, but once in use proved to be essentially useless. The issue I had is that the cam buckle slips and the strap will not stay tight - sort of missing the whole point of a tie down strap. I am not sure if this is an issue with the material the stap is made from (very slippery) or the cam.

Works like a charm. No you won't be able to get them as tight as a ratchet, but you shouldn't expect to. For you people who say that it slips, you might be threading the strap the wrong way. If you thread it correctly, trying to stretch it out will only make the little teeth grab tighter. There is NO WAY, these will slip out once they've been tightened correctly unless you break something.

I've used even longer versions of these for several years and they still have good spring pressure and are quick and easy to install.

We use them to hold a computer box shut while we travel in the RV and it performs superbly. What do you say when products just do what they are supposed to without any flourish?

Not bad for the price but the cams will loosen up a bit over time especially if you really tighten them up. Make sure you follow the proper threading path or the cam locks wont work at all. There is a diagram on the side of the mechanism to aid you.

I got these to secure Christmas tree boxes - we have a commercial decorating business and as we all know trees do not go back into their boxes very well after use. These worked - there is some slipping but overall they'll do. I saved enough in packing tape this year to pay for them!

True to the age-old adage, you can do better than these. A lot better, I would say. Don't get me wrong, they work... and very likely will continue to work within their listed load rating. I just don't feel I would trust them to strap down a kayak when highway speeds are involved, that's all. Fortunately, I didn't buy them for that. Instead, they will serve as a means to strap said kayak to a cart to help haul it from the car to the water.

Ignoring the "feel" of the build quality, I encountered issues right out of the package with these straps. A fairly laughable design flaw, if you ask me. The spring which holds the cam closed actually runs through where the webbing must pass through, and yet no additional clearance has been afforded to the opening to account for both spring and webbing. The fix was simple enough---simply tapering the webbing end to an angle allowed me to pass it through considerably easier, but the spring still gets hung on the webbing from time to time.

If you're looking for something a little more heavy-duty, I can't recommend the NRS brand enough. The springs (two, as opposed to one) are of a heavier gauge, and are recessed into the buckle (which, itself, is much more sturdy.) The spikes which grip the webbing are considerably "sharper" and the webbing is also far more substantial material. To top it all off, the webbing itself is conveniently labeled in length for easier length identification. Can't say enough about the quality of that product. Worth far more than they charge.

These straps are too wide to easily fit through the buckle and the material snags when you can get them to go through. The straps are VERY light weight and thin, I wouldn't trust them to hold anything even moderately heavy in place.
