Rated 2 out of 5 by shawn not easy to use
this was supposed to be an easy to use alternative to the ratchet systems.... i disagree. the learning curve in the hot Florida sun was annoying and i never feel totally secure after install and driving. I will be going to buy better product on my next river kayak trip

Rated 2 out of 5 by B good if you can tie knots
Straps are good but will not hold if you dont tie a knot. The teeth on the grab part dont hold strap will come loose enough for whatever to fly away. But if you can tie off no problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SNB This product is not worth it
The teeth did not properly grab the strap and loosened in travel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Casey CargoLoc 12' Extreme AutoCam Tie Downs
These tie-downs do the job. My canoe remained safely on my roof without sliding around on top. I will reccomend to any canoe enthusiast that they consider getting tie-downs because they minimize wear and tear on your canoe and vehicle and contribute to road safety.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Canoer Difficult to thread
We bought these straps to secure our canoe to the roof of our minivan. The biggest issue is that it is very difficult, and requires an above average bit of dexterity and patience, to thread the one end of the strap into the "buckle" for tightening. It's a challenge even if you're sitting on the ground, and even more difficult to do when you're standing on a step-stool or reaching over your head to tighten it down. You have to compress the release button on the buckle, while simultaneously trying to thread the strap into the buckle from the INSIDE portion of it. Just really awkward, and will become even more difficult if (when) the strap's end begins to fray a bit. Once you get it threaded, it works fine but I don't think I'll have the patience to use them much longer. I see easier-to-use straps in our near future...
