Rhino Straps USA

Recommended Posts

These are really nice very heavy duty tie straps with retaining clips on the hooks. They also have a soft tie loop on one end which makes it super easy to strap down a lot of bikes. Bikes with fairing like the XX are always a challenge.

I really like the extra peace of mind from the retaining clips so you know hitting a good bounce isnt going to let your bike come unhooked. Unlikely but we get paranoid with our bikes.

On my last trip I had the Speed Triple in the bed of the truck and was in a hurry to get on the road so I placed a propane cylinder too close to one of the straps. Over the course of the roughly 9hr drive the top of the tank sawed about 3/4 of the way thru the strap. I noticed it when I got there and was unloading because the sliver of strap that was left held. Color me impressed.

I figured I'd email them and see if I could buy just the strap/hook half since the cam buckle end was still perfect. I told them exactly what happened and even sent them a pic of it sitting there by the LP cyl. They responded to my email in about 3 mins and asked for a shipping address. They said stuff happens and shipped me an entire new strap 2 day shipping on their dime.

Very impressive. They have a lifetime guarantee but I didn't figure it applied to me being a dumb ass.

Reminds me of the warranty on Rubicon Express lifts.  "I bent the shit out of your trackbar doing some ridiculous bullshit, how do I buy another one?"  They wouldn't take my money, and I had a new one in 2-3 days.

I had brand new heavy duty straps (for cars) without the clips on the front of the bike and when I got to the dragstrip, one was unhooked.  I also had rear straps which saved the day.  Never used them again and replaced them with super heavy duty car straps with the retaining clips.  That was with a Canyon Dancer in the front and soft loops in the rears.
