they're strong and they do work but they could be better. First, they could have use a ratchet style tightening system as opposed to the buckle grip system... but whatever, it still works. Secondly, there are no instructions... it turns out, you loop the colored strap through whatever you want the strap to grab onto and then loop it through the hook at the other end of the colored strap... that particular hook won't actually clasp to anything... it's just for the colored strap. But then take the hook at the other end of the black strap and use that to hold onto whatever will be the tie-down, such as a eyelet in the bed of your truck or similar strongly grounded support. Once you figure that part out though... it works pretty decently.
I ordered these to strap my bike down in the bed of my pickup truck. I just returned from a 2500 mile trip down south and back with my bike in the bed and these worked fantastic! Prevented any type of damage and allowed the ratchet straps to hold the bike firmly upright. I HIGHLY recommend these!
I recently took a trip to a northern part of the state and rode my motorcycle on the back roads to get there to a work related school. I had a over sized backpack that I placed on my pillion seat, just in front of my sissy seat. I used that netting and all it took was one to completely secure it to my saddle bag frame and sissy seat. I bought two of them with the intention that I would probably need to have them both for securing my backpack, but did not. I am thoroughly satisfied with the use of the netting and then some. Very durable. Also, especially the price could not be beat what so ever. Very satisfied with my purchase and use of the product. Thumbs up all the way!
