Retractable ratchet straps are often used as transom tie downs or as a general tie downs for recreational watercraft. The transom is the area of a boat that supports the outboard motor or a step/dive platform if the boat has an inboard motor.

Retractable straps work as a transom tie down to keep the boat secured to the trailer and to prevent it from bouncing while in transport.

Retractable strap are designed specifically to prevent webbing from tangling and flapping during the drive. Simply press the quick button release to automatically retract the strap. That feature will protect the webbing and keep it from tangling.
