Excellent product. Does the job! Double cross-hooks secure the plane.
Extremely high quality stitching and overall excellent set of tie downs. I love the double hooks to ensure they will never come off the aircraft
I have used these tie downs for a number of years and really like them. They are easy to use and adjust. The double hooks provide a very secure mechanism if the straps become slack due to the plane rocking in violent wind storms. These are my favorite of all the tie downs I have used.
These are nice straps and give an impression of high quality however, for what its worth, my plane was tied down with these straps and was hit by severe thunderstorm winds from the tail direction - all three straps broke. The stitching holding the end-hooks just ripped out leaving the hooks in the tie-down rings with nothing attached. So Im guessing the 3000lb rating applies to the webbing but not the stitching holding the hooks on. Fortunately there was no damage - the plane spun 180 degrees into the wind and did not hit anything in the process.
I have a Cessna 172. I flew into KHFJ Monett, MO. These tie downs (13-06328) were not long enough to reach from my wing to the tie down hooks in the ground at the airport.

These are priced and sold in a set of three tie down straps.
Each kit contains 3 long tie-down straps all 9' vinyl coated, dual-opposing hooks.
These units do not come with instructions, but it is a simple design. You would attach one side to the hold down point of the aircraft, the other to the hold down point on the ground, and pull strap with the loop to tighten, and the locking part of the strap will hold the strap at that point. To release, there is a lever you would push at the locking point and it will release the tension of the strap.
They weigh approximately 3.9 lbs in the bag.
These are 1500 lb working load. 3000 lb is breaking.
The strap is 1 inch wide. It is a cam type buckle.
