If you're looking to add some security to your kayak transportation system, then the Malone SpeedLine is an effective and affordable choice. The SpeedLine is a kit of straps, ratchets, and cord that work together to form a bow and stern tie down system. Bow and stern tie down straps are the basic "safety net" for transporting kayaks in case the main tie downs malfunction. Having bow and stern straps is a must!
Unfortunately though, securing bow and stern lines before transporting your kayaks is always a pain. Whether it is getting the tension right or trying to find just the right spot to hook to on the front of your vehicle, it always takes longer than it should. The SpeedLine Mini Ratchet kit addresses both of the issues and makes your kayak adventure just a little bit less stressful (and more safe!). The SpeedLine includes two self-ratcheting mini ratchets that allow you to quickly and easily dial in the tension you need. Additionally, the 24" Nylon webbing straps give you tons of flexibility when it comes to mounting to your car and your yak.
Get safe and get your gear strapped down quick with Malone's SpeedLine!
Did the job, held my kayak in place. No bobbing up and down during travel.
They were easy to use (I'm a first timer) and seem reliable and sturdy. One caution is to make sure you do not ratchet them down too much or you could damage your kayak (or whatever you are transporting). One annoyance was that the clip was not large enough to attach to the car's front tow hook, so I had to replace it with a larger carabiner.
