FAQs

Is that little ring really strong enough to hold my bike?

Absolutely! We have tested the Strap Ring to it’s breaking point and that is somewhere beyond 2200 lbs. EACH. It doesn’t bend at 2000 lbs. The ring distorts or bends at 2200 lbs. but still doesn’t break.

Will it rust? I noticed that it isn’t painted or coated with anything.

It is made of stainless steel.

Can it be used for other stuff?

Absolutely. My son is a building contractor and uses them to secure his ladders inside his equipment trailer. I use them as a place to attach bungee straps to the rear of my bike. They fit nicely under the muffler hanger bolts on my KTM.

Let us know if you have some clever uses for the Strap Ring.

 

 

Installation Instructions:

  • Simply remove a bolt where you want to have a tie down point and replace it again with the small side of the Strap Ring under the head.
  • The most common places are the upper or lower triple clamp pinch bolts.
  • Install the Strap Ring in a place that will not likely snag on riding gear or you!
  • Check for proper clearance of wires and control cables by turning forks from lock to lock.

 

Warning:

  • The Strap Ring must lay flat under the bolt head and never in recessed or countersunk holes, unless the Strap Ring can lay flat inside the recess.
  • Position the ring toward the direction of pull, so pulling on the ring does not tend to loosen the bolt.
  • Install the Strap Ring in a place that will not likely snag on riding gear or you!
  • Check for proper clearance of wires and control cables by turning forks from lock to lock.
  • The bolt you place the Strap Ring under must still be long enough not to compromise it’s strength or it’s originally intended use.
  • Use a longer bolt of equal or greater strength if necessary!

Using Blue Loc-tite is always a good idea.
