Strong and Dependable Tie-downs for Motorcycles or General Cargo
Mac's 1" tie-down straps (lashing straps) are well known for their strength and dependability. There's good reason why.
It starts with our premium strapping. Rated to 4,000lbs, the select nylon webbing material we use signficantly improves chafing and UV resistance over "box store" straps.
Then, during construction of each strap, we sew all ends using the highest stitch count in the industry. You can see this in our characteristic "double box" stitch pattern that ensures maximum tear resistance. The result is a strap with an incredible 2,800lb Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS)--more than enough strength for the biggest bike or cargo (recommended working load is 1/3 MBS).
The quality of Mac's 1" straps make them an excellent choice for securing your motorcycle or other important cargo.
Choose Your Attachment Style
The S-Hook option consists of a heavy-duty 3/8" diameter steel wire hook. This option is favored for its simplicity and ability to attach to metal rails or other locations where a captive hook would not otherwise work.
Mac's S-Hooks are fully encased in a thick, ruggedized vinyl coating, for added protection.
S-Hook with Keeper
The S-Hook with Keeper option consists of the same heavy-duty 3/8" diameter steel wire, but with the addition of a spring loaded trap for keeping the hook connected. This option gives you the ability to attach to metal rails, while still having the option of a captive hook when attaching to standard tie-down hard points.

Flat Snap Hook
The Flat Snap Hook system consists of spring-loaded captive hooks at each end. This attachment style offers the advantage of preventing the strap from disconnecting even when slack develops. This makes securing cargo easier and is an added measure of safety for the journey.
Flat Snap Hooks can be used with most anchor points (e.g., D Rings) or track systems (e.g., VersaTie, E Track, etc), provided the hard points and fittings support the load requirement.
Zinc plated for corossion protection.
Choose Your Tensioner Type
The Cam Buckle offers a low-profile tensioner that cinches quicker and is perfect for cargo that might be damaged by excessive tension, such as kayakes or other thin-walled equipment.
The Cam Buckle features a spring-loaded thumb-depressed cam, with teeth that engage the strap to hold cargo firmly in place. To adjust, simply thread the strap through the cam buckle and pull taut. Because the cam buckle does not have the leverage of a ratchet tensioner, the risk of damage to lightweight cargo is minimized.
Electroplated for corossion protection.
The ratchet tensioner is recommended for heavier applications, such as for the transport of heavy motorcycles, small recreational vehicles or building materials and lumber. The wide, confortable ratchet handle allows for the development of higher tension with improved slip resistance. The ratchet may not be a good choice if high strap tension could damage the cargo.
Mac's ratchets are well known for how easily they operate, every time. Our unique design resists the binding that can occur on other ratchets from dirt or racking.
Made in the USA
We carefully sew and assemble each tie-down strap in our Sandpoint Idaho shop, allowing us to retain a level of quality that is often lost when manufactruing is outsourced. Plus, we feel good about creating American jobs!
