RATCHET-X 10' Ratchet Tie Down, Black Grip; 1,500 lbs (2 pack) is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst ratchet straps I have ever bought The body somehow expanded so that the ratchet release gets stuck and they will not release. All four on the pack are doing this. They can get your load secured with the best of them, but you should have knife handy if you want it loose. Really bed design and build.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made me cry. I purchased a queen-sized box spring online a few days ago and needed some straps to secure it to the top of my van for transport. So, I went to Lowes and due to an employee's recommendation (I am not very experienced) I ended up with these. The box came with no instructions. I tried using online tutorials but they weren't helping, and after a while I began getting very frustrated (it didn't help that I was in a rush). Finally, after several agonizing minutes of no progress, I spotted some professional movers who were working in the area and asked them for help. Three of them struggled with it, baffled. One of them turned to me and said "I've never seen anything like this before in my life" and called it "a piece of trash". They had to fully unwind it, wind it up again from scratch, and even then it took two of them to loosen it. At this point I had lost several hours and broke into tears. One of the straps even tore through it's own gear and got stuck. I ended up having to tie them manually and make frequent stops on my way home to make sure it stayed secure and wouldn't cause an accident. Fortunately I made it home safe despite this awful product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came bent out of the box. Unusable. The ratchet came bent in such a way that the pawl opposite the handle could not disengage. It was too wide for both sides of the pawl to rise up the curve and one would always slip down when opened. I had to cut it off after first use.

I own a set of these and love them. Looking to buy a couple more sets but I can’t find them anywhere. I assume they were discontinued? Where can I get them?

Asked by: Troy
How long are they without being extended out? Using them for 4 corners to ratchet my electric wheel chair down to my rack.

Is there anyway of shortening the distance between the hook and the Ratchet? When i tie the jet ski down, the ratchet ends up sitting right  on the fibreglass corner. Or can i buy one with a different length on the hook/ratchet piece?

Asked by: Steele
It is not possible to shorten the sewn end of the ratchet. However, if the ratchet is hitting a sensitive part of what you are holding down, then possibly another option could be to use a soft tie or short tow strap to extend that end and hopefully avoid the delicate parts of your cargo.

Releasing the thumb release allows the handle to move without tightening the rachet, and allows opening the mechanism to 180 degrees. However, I can not gain any slack! Without some additional slack I cannot release the tightened strap. Please advise.

Asked by: Chai613
Make sure the ratchet is completely in the release position, a full 180 degrees. You could have difficulty if the ratchet is not swung open the entire way. If this issue persists and you are in fact in the full release position, please contact SmartStraps directly by calling 1-844-295-9218 so we can further assist you.

Your securing velcro strap is on the end of the strap and clogs up the ratchet spool?

Asked by: Sean
Let me rephrase, the velco securing strap occupies critical space on the spool. The occupied space diminishes from the 14' capability.

I have a 1,000 lb toolbox. Will the 500 lb ratchet tie downs suffice if I tie down an 4 corners? At the casters of the tool box?

Asked by: Kyle
No, this would not work if you plan on using the tie downs on the casters. Tying down at the casters will not provide any downward forces to prevent the box from moving. In that case, it would be very likely that the toolbox would find a way to flip onto it's side.

Can I get replacement straps 

Asked by: Shawn

I need to rethread the ratchet.  Is there a diagram showing how to do this, i.e., the proper way to insert/route the straps into the ratchet slots?
