After considerable research to secure a Jeep with 32" tires to a vehicle towing trailer for a 2,000 mile cross-country move, went with 4-point anchoring setup using Diamond weave lasso straps (with cordura sleeves through rings). Initially, ratchet-to-trailer contact caused them to release from locked position. Secured each with a single zip tie. No more problem. The entire setup needed no tightening for the entire trip. Excellent recommendation and extensive interaction with technical support staff (Gunnar). Would recommend also smaller ratchet and 14' straps to secure rubber chocks behind rear tires anchoring them to bonnet stay bars if renting a trailer. Routine pedestrian bonnet harness setup with trailer rental is worthless for oversized SUV tires. Be careful with axle straps over brake lines. Clearances a problem also with Jeeps. Avoided them altogether.

Not good, first order of ratchet were great, these just plain suck. Bad metal, not smooth, they get stuck a lot.
I am glad we could resolve this for you.
Best ratchet for my Kaufman... Doesn't mar the trailer as bad and much stronger cleaner operation than the ones the trailer came with
Ratchet binds when strap gets tight and is very difficult to release. Definately would not buy again.
We are sorry to hear about the problem with this order.
Due to this complaint, we tried to create the same problem and we still don't know why they bind for this customer.
We have also talked to other customers who got the same ratchets and we have not had any other complaints.
