Alright, today we are going to review part number EM58691 from Erickson Manufacturing. What we have here is a 2 inch wide by 27 foot long Tie Down Strap. This is rated for a maximum load of 10,000 pounds with a working strength of actually 3,300 pounds. Alright, and what is nice about this is it has a built in tie down tamer. And basically what it is you can see here, it has a coil and the end of the handle here can take up the extra slack. You always have some left over. Instead of having it flapping in the breeze or tying it into a knot onto itself. With the rest of you slack, this is a little bit more manageable way of having it. 0:37
Okay, we will go ahead and cover the construction of this part. I will start off with the hook right here. I will just pull it out. And the hooks that it comes with is a flat style hook. And that will just grab the edge of your trailer or whatever tie down point you have. And the strap measurements, from here to here is 2 inches and the rest of the strap here that goes into the reel is 27 feet. Alright, next we will discuss the ratchet assembly itself here. It works just like any other ratchet. However, the handle is a little bit bigger, obviously to hold up the rest of the strap when it is not in use. And then on the other side of the strap, we have the second flat hook. From around about 16 inches of strap and hook total on the other side. 1:22
