If you’ve ever used ratchet tie down straps to secure something to the back of a truck or atop your SUV, you know they can be effective but also challenging to use. 

That’s why Keeper worked hard while designing their Combat Ratchet Tie Down.

Durable and Versatile

The Combat Ratchet Tie Down is treated with Keeper Extreme Webbing, a durable hard plastic fiber coating.

It’s 67 percent more resistant to abrasions and 30 percent more cut resistant. That means it’s less likely to break or fray because, say, you pulled it across a sharp edge on a piece of lawn equipment. 

Whether you’re hauling items in the pouring rain or freezing snow, these tie downs can be used in all weather conditions. That makes it perfect for cross-country and long-distance moves, where weather can be unpredictable.

You’ll also have peace of mind once you strap in your load, because the Combat Ratchet Tie Down exceeds the U.S. Department of Transportation’s standards.

Easy to Use

Keeper keeps it simple, straightforward, and comfortable. The tie down’s oversized handles and nonslip grips allow for easy operation, so you won’t have to squeeze your hands to secure your load.

And it won’t just protect your hands — the vinyl-coated S-hooks prevent scratching and marring, keeping your vehicle looking in tip-top condition.

Need to strap something down that’s too big for the S-hook? Well, Keeper’s still got you covered. The Combat Ratchet Tie Down comes with a sewn-in soft tie.

Heavy-Duty Handling

This tie-down’s 1-inch-thick, 14-foot straps can wrap around your biggest loads. And — bonus! — they come in a two-pack if you’re pulling double duty.

Plus, it has a 500-pound load limit, so you can use fewer straps and still be sure your load is secure.
