Reviews

Worked good. Make sure you cut the rope to length before your first use. Wish they were lighter but...

The kit feels well made, and once installed was solid, however, I have not yet subjected it to any real loads. The only issue I have so far is that the hammer provided was too light to adequately set the pins in the sand/gravel soils I encountered.

Used for the first time at Oshkosh. Fortunately we didn’t have to test them to the limits of wind and rain. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Used this at OSH21 during several significant storms. I used it to tie down my PA-16 (light weight taildragger) which is a prime candidate to blow away in a wind storm. The Claw kept it solidly tied down throughout the week. I will likely use some higher quality rope with it in the future, but the supplied rope seemed plenty strong. There are DIY options out there that work just as well, but for the price, The Claw appealed to my laziness. Great product.

Excellent product! Purchased at 2021 OSH to secure my RV7 and held my A/C in place during a significant storm. Highly recommended!

Worked like a champ out on a dry lakebed. I any improvement would be in the form of ratcheting straps. Otherwise, it is great.
