Overview

The Toughman™ TieDown is a new and unique multi-use rope based tie-down system. The Toughman Tie-Down incorporate the patent protected Toughman™ Rope Clamp which has only two moving parts and is manufactured from high performance engineered nylon resin. It is very easy to use, extremely lightweight, high strength and permanently corrosion proof. The Toughman™ Tie-Down product package includes one rope clamp, ten feet of rope, and one corrosion resistant steel hook. Military Tough: The Toughman™ Rope Clamp has undergone rigorous testing by the US Army Soldier Systems Center, “Natick” test labs and has been approved for use on cargo nets and rope support lines on military tents.

Key Benefits

Soft Rope Attachment
No hook needed on clamp end.

Quick lock & release
Secure and release loads easily. No complicated feeding of strap material through heavy metal ratchet mechanisms.

Adjustable rope tension
Without tying knots.

Permanent Tension and Secure Hold Down
Does not loosen up under vibration and does not require retightening like some ratchets.

No Bouncing or Vibration
Secured items are held tight. Traditional tie-down bungee products are a very elastic & allow loads to bounce.

Safety
Unlike “high stretch” rubber & and elastic cord tie-downs, the Toughman™ uses braided rope as the restraint medium. Loads can be safely secured without dangerous “elastic stretch” situations.

Reviews

Repeat customer. I just bought 4 more to secure a pontoon boat to cleats when docked. I use carabiners for the boat vs. the hooks for aircraft tiedowns. Very quick and easy. They work perfectly!

They work exactly as advertised. I used them to tie down my RV14A in Kansas City recently and the airplane didn’t move an inch in very strong 30-40 knot gusts. I’m sure they could have handled much more. Just make certain that you secure the loose end of the rope to the hook with a strong half hitch or similar knot.
