    Straps that’ll last.

    NRS custom-manufactures its 1in Tie-Down Straps to a tensile strength of 1500lb, then dips these straps in UV-blocking solution so the Tie-Downs won’t wither away and flake-out after a season of use. Die-cast aluminum buckles cinch down and apply pressure across the entire width of the strap when you secure your craft to roof racks or trailers.

    Strap it down

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Simple but effective. The buckle is stout and holds strong. The availability of many different lengths is great. These beat bungees and and plain old rope any day of the week.

    Never enough

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You can never have too many of these. I pick them up as needed or when on sale in a variety of lengths. The quality of the NRS hardware and even webbing cannot be compared to the generic or off-brand substitutes.

    Just make sure to brand them with your name/initials. I've lost a few of these to friends and campmates with sticky fingers.

    Better than Thule

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm glad I made the switch from Thule to NRS straps. The cam buckle is stronger and feels more durable. I mainly use these to secure heavy ladders on my truck but works great for my Aire 2 man kayak as well.

    Always have a few

      I love these straps for just about everything! The no-frills design and durability truly make these straps by far the best. I've got quite a few in a handful of lengths for everything from keeping my dry bag secure, to storing my roof box in the garage, and always having some extra in the trunk of my car.

      Boating Necessity

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Every good river rat has a bucket full of these babies. You know you have enough when there is an extra 4' for a belt and a couple of 9's to hang the hammock. I've used them as dog leashes, to hang a busted tailpipe on the Tacoma and to set a splint. Write your name on the tag or they will surely find their way into someone else's boat.

      Great straps

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These are versatile, strong, durable, and easy to use straps. I use for putting a boat on top of my car and they work as expected. The buckle is strong and secure and avoids the over tightening issue that you can get with ratchet straps. I have 2 of the 15 foot ones, and I do not have a complaint. Highly recommend for anyone needing to secure anything down.

      Everyone's best friend

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      NRS straps can be used in so many situations you just can't have enough. Stock up on a number of different lengths- while you may think the long ones can do it all (which, yes, is true) it is nice to have a variety of lengths that better fit their purpose. I have found that the 6' are the most useful- you can also always link them together. Use them to tie gear into your car, boat, bike, pack, etc. Plus they can be a helpful rescue tool that are always good to have around.

      The industry standard

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If there is something that needs to be lashed down or held in place this is the only solution. Easily identified by their length indicated right on the strap and an always reliable cam buckle make sure that your gear stays where you strap it.

      Get Several

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      NRS straps last forever, and don't slip through the closure like cheaper versions do. Get several of these and stop worrying about your kayak sliding down the highway!


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      NRS straps are awesome; use them to strap stuff down on your raft, stuff to your car, stuff together, use a 4' as a belt, or pretty much anything you could imagine. They're super burly and ready for your abuse. I once used a couple of these to secure a truck camper to a truck for transport! I just wish they'd be discounted when you want to buy more than one. I find 12' straps to work well for a single kayak on a roof rack or for two kayaks with stackers. I usually use 15' in various cross patterns to tie down gear in the bow/stern of rafts. 15' also work well if your mating/stacking kayaks/IKs on a roof rack. Shorter straps work great for other various tasks and they're also easily tied in series to turn two shorter straps into one longer one. Roll them up, store them in a stuff sack for easy transport and avoid a tangled mess.


      Compare NRS and off brand

        NRS has 2 springs compared to the off brand 1 spring. NRS is lower profile than off brand which may result in less unintentional release. NRS deeper sharper teeth. NRS has a 3rd structural member making the whole cam frame stronger. Look, I'm going to call it what it is, the gold standard.

        Compare NRS and off brand

        Are the NRS straps the same strength as...

        Are the NRS straps the same strength as the Thule 521?


        Yup! Most 1 inch cam straps are going to be made from virtually the same polypropylene. The only difference between an NRS 9 footer and the Thule is that the Thule straps come with a little rubber bumper to put over the buckle. (I've been using cam straps on my vehicle for years without the bumpers to no ill effect.)

        Where are these straps made?

        Where are these straps made?

        Best Answer

        Hey Lenny P,

        These are made of a material called polypropylene ((C3H6)n). It's a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of outdoor and indoor textiles.

        Fun fact: polypropylene is recyclable!

        When you describe the loops straps as being...

        When you describe the loops straps as being 6' long, can I assume that is the total length of the two parts of the strap system together?

        Your picture could indicate that there are...

        Your picture could indicate that there are nine different lengths available but the "select option" box
        only shows the 3', 9', & 15'.

        If you don't carry the other lengths and are simply using NRS's generic picture maybe you could
        consider offering the others as I for one would be interested in some of them.

        The "select option" box shows which option are in stock. At the time I am writing this they have all lengths in stock and therefore all are represented in the drop down. That changes from day to day. I believe this is true of all listing.

        Hope that helps.

        What length and how many straps would I...

        What length and how many straps would I need to tie down two recreational kayaks on a kayak stacker?

        In my experience its best to err on the side of having too much strap. I recommend a 2, 12 footers for your endeavor. You could possibly get away with 9's (depending on how wide your boat is)but when I secure boats with these I lay the strap over the boat and under whatever you're using as your "anchor" (roof rack, side rails, etc) then double back, so the extra length gives you something to pull with. I find this is the best approach to give you the most leverage...and consequently get your boat on the tightest.

        Hopefully that helps.
