    These things are awesome! I had fantastic costumer service. I purchased the Alta 6 and the retractable tie downs. They answered my questions. They took the time with me and made sure I knew how to do everything with the rack and tie downs. Since I drove down to pick it up in person they put the rack together for me as well. They also tested all the joints and lubed them all up.

    Believe there should be a slight set bend in the piece that bolts to rack allowing a straight line to hitch. With 6 bikes it has already began to bend on it own.

      Thanks Steve, that is a good point. One way to increase the strength on the straps is to use the orange tie down pieces that came with the rack. First take the bolt off each orange tie downs, then take the bolts off the ratcheting straps. Place the orange tie down flush against the back of the ratchet straps and use the same bolt, but and washer setup to secure it all together. Give us a call and we can walk you through it.

    Great upgrade to the standard setup. It’s great to have the straps available on the rack when you want them and not have to hunt for your own straps. Plus with the retractable design there is no excess strap flapping around as you drive. They are built well and work great. I would highly recommend purchasing these retractable straps when buying a rack.

    Since we go off road ALOT and have the rack on our RV we got the recommended straps and attached to the bumper. Makes the rack super stable.
