1" End Fittings and Attachment Styles


Mac's offers different 1" end fittings and attachment styles to suit your unique transportation situation.

1" End Fittings


Favored for its simplicity and ability to attach to places where a captive hook can’t or won’t; the S-hook features a heavy-duty 3/8” diameter steel, wire hook that is fully encased in a thick, ruggedized vinyl coating for added protection.

S-Hook with Keeper

Built from the same heavy-duty 3/8” diameter steel as the S-hook, the S-hook with keeper is also fully encased in thick, ruggedized vinyl coating for added protection. The spring-loaded trap keeps the hook connected, giving 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

When the orientation on the D-ring puts a twist in the webbing with other attachment hooks, the flat snap hook is an easy solution. Rated for 3,300 lbs., it features our patented thumb release for easy removal. The zinc-coated flat snap hook attachment offers the advantage of preventing the strap disconnection 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.

Tensioner Type

Cam Buckle

Choose the cam buckle tensioner for quicker setup and when cargo might be damaged by excessive tension.

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 kayaks 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 corrosion protection.

Ratchet Mechanism

Choose the ratchet tensioner for securing heavier loads. 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, comfortable 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 and raking.
