I purchased these a while back in hopes to secure my stand up paddleboard (SUP) to my roof rack. The straps are well built and easy to manage. The lock is encased in rubber so you don't really need to worry about dings or scratches to your paint. The rubber lock casing was the deciding factor over the similar SteelCore straps.

I've taken many road trips with my 10'6" SUP strapped to my roof using these. I normally averaged speeds around 75-80+/- a few and the board never moved. I would pull over occasionally to check the straps and they never seemed to need any adjustment or tightening. Another good thing, is they are easy to coil them up when not in use, so you can keep the mesh pouch they came in and just store them in there. I've owned a few other pairs of straps and they seem to always turn into a rats nest in the trunk.

I did contact Yakima prior to purchasing these about them being "cut proof" and this was their response:

Hello Chris,

Thank you for contacting Yakima Customer Support.

The ripcords are cut proof in that someone with a pocket knife, utility knife or good scissors cannot cut them, but someone with a larger pair of diagonal cutters or linesman pliers will be able cut them with enough time and determination. Our aim with our security features are to keep honest people honest and prevent thefts of opportunity. I checked with our Warranty folks, and I can tell you that in the year or so we have been selling the Ripcord, we have not heard of any incidents where the cable was cut. The best way for you to make your final decision will be to visit a local dealer that sells these products and check them out for yourself.

Thank you for your inquiry!
Yakima Support

I was disappointed with these straps. I bought them to lock them my paddle board to my car. The locking mechanisms lock, but the part that is supposed to hold the strap in place slipped with just a slight tug after I locked them with a key. I only used the straps twice and would not rely on them to hold anything to the roof of my car or lock any items in place. I gave this a 2 star review because the company at least refunded my money. I am certain Yakima is a good brand, but these straps just didn't work for me.

I purchased the Yakima Ripcord locking straps after first looking at the Steelcore brand locking straps. The Steelcores are nice, but were more expensive and did not have the rubber padding around the locking device. The Yakima straps work well to lock my racing SUP boards to my roof racks, and work quite well as tie down straps in general. The locking mechanism works smoothly, and it's easy to get them to cinch up tightly without worrying about crushing the rails of my delicate race board. My only complaint is that the straps are pretty stiff, which makes them a bit unwieldy when wrapping them around the board and racks. I did add a loop of shock cord and a cord lock to each one so that I can easily coil up the excess strap and bundle it neatly on top when the straps are in use. The Steelcore straps include this feature, but it was simple to add to the Yakimas. They also come with a nice mesh sack for storage, and they use standard Yakima style keys. For the money, these are good insurance against theft of expensive equipment, and worth buying.

I have had these straps for a couple of years now and they have held up very well. I mostly use them for tying down my surfboards and keeping them secure, of which they do a great job and I can't imagine a better product out there that has stood up to various road trips and many things that have been tied down on the roof of my SUV. I use these in conjunction with the whisper bar series from Yakima as well, which is also a great product!

However, after about 2 years of use the lock just fell out during a trip, the function still worked as far as tying things down and not coming undone, just I couldn't lock the strap anymore. I went out on a limb and contacted Yakima and told them my story, I was looking to replace the lock although I didn't have confidence that it would stay in since the last one fell out for some reason (the other one is fine). They sent me brand new straps to replace the one that was broken after 2 years! T

Needless to say they have a customer for life if they support their products like that, I am SOLD!

These are a great design and make me feel comfortable leaving my SUP on the roof of the car overnight. While not theft proof, someone would have to really come prepared to cut through the thick metal core that runs through the strap.

I appreciate the padding on the looking mechanism, and the metal piece that binds the fold over of the strap to hold the locking mechanism in place. No gouges or marks in my board as of yet.

Its a little stiff. the cable is stout so that limits flexibility. The button u push to release or adjust it requires a very firm push with your thumb. I won't use it all the time, only when my SUP will be left on the roof overnight. It will work fine for that.

My husband and I were very impressed with these steel locking straps for securing gear in our cargo basket. They kept our gear tight on our car while we drove a 2000 mile 3 week road trip through the rainy hot southwestern US. When our roof rack got messed up in a low clearance garage, these steel straps saved us and our gear. Just passed the strap through our back doors and it kept our gear, cargo basket tightly secured to the roof of our car. Great product! Worth shelling out some extra bucks for this. Nice to have the security of a lock as well. Nobody messed with our gear. 2 big thumbs up!
