Cam buckle straps are softer on cargo than their ratcheting counterparts and easier to control with one hand - the lever gets pressed while the strap is slowly pulled loose or tight. Therefore, many people prefer cam straps over ratchet strap when it comes to securing bikes, motorcycles, ATVs, and other valuable loads on their trailers or trucks.
This 1" wide, 9' long cam buckle strap is made of durable polyester webbing that is water-resistant, avoiding the detrimental development of mold, mildew, and rust. The S-hook strap end fittings are coated with vinyl to avoid abrasion and body damage to motorcycles and other freight.
Loading A Motorcycle Onto A Trailer Or Pickup Truck Bed
It is best to rope in a friend to help with loading your motorcycle. If you must do it alone, be slow and cautious. Put the motorcycle into first gear and walk it up the ramp, into the truck bed or trailer. Don't ride the bike in and never sit on it while loading; you need to control the bike.
Wheel chocks keep the tires locked in place so there is less stress placed on tie-down straps.
Motorcycles should be tied down with a minimum of four straps, at least two of them at the front of the bike. Front straps should only be anchored forward and/or down, never backward.
Hook the vinyl-coated S-hook at one end of these cam straps into an anchor point (such as bolted and surface mount D rings) on the vehicle, twist the strap webbing to reduce wind noise on the open road, and loop the other S-hook over a solid bike part, such as the fork tubes. Never anchor tie-downs to aluminum parts, wiring, or the handlebars; they are too weak and brittle to bear the bike's weight. If excess strap length is left out, it is likely to whip against the bike or pickup and ruin the body finish, or get caught under the tires and cut. To avoid such damage, tie the strap to itself or knot it under the cam buckle to help lock it in place.
The kickstand is not made to bear the full weight of the motorcycle during travel so once the straps are hooked, put it up. Then sit on the bike and lean from one side to the other, pulling the straps tight as you go.
