10 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesNice kitVery nice kit that works great. The steel hooks that are supplied with the kit where a little heavy for my sport plane but would be great for most other planes. Maybe offer a lighter weight set of hooks for lighter weight planes?June 4, 2020Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesTie down kit in a nice tool bag personalized to your planeThe bag is a heavy duty oiled canvas tool bag personalized to your plane so that it's more difficult to "walk away." Great storage for tools generally and well padded to keep the interior contents from banging around making noise and denting its surroundings outside the bag.
The tie down system is excellent with heavy duty rope cam lock. Quick to attach to tiedown points and easy to adjust tie-down tensions, as needed.August 26, 2019Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat value solutionUse these in place of chains and funky ropes you find in temp parking at airports. Setup was easy and pretty intuitive. Components are built to last. The plastic "turnbuckles" work perfectly and I like the fact that you can really pull down hard and cinch the rope to really nail the plane to the ground. I had the plane on a ramp in Texas for a couple of days in moderately high winds and when I returned the locking devices were still holding firm, no slippage, case closed. Couple of ramp guys liked them and asked where I got them.February 14, 2019Purchased
1 year agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoSnaps on side pockets are a failure. Otherwise looks great.On opening this product as a gift, my son-in-law was excited to receive it but I was a bit dismayed when two of the four metal snaps broke off as he tried to open the side pockets. The top of the two snaps separated and left the inner part of the snap on the bag and the top of the snap on the pocket flap. It looks like the fabric was too thick for the snap used.
The ones that didn't fail were almost impossible to unsnap.
Otherwise it looks like a great product.
I'd consider sending it back but I can replace the snaps myself with less bother.December 27, 2018Purchased

over 2 years agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat productPurchased this to tie my Diamond DA40 down. Once I read the instructions it was VERY easy. Not pages of instruction just 1 I think. Ease of use is great, simply pull and loop through and I am done.
Came with enough rope to actually reach each wing as my plane is 39ft 6in wide. Holds great and will be purchasing a couple more....
Ease of use 10, Holding well 10,
Bag it came with is heavy weight material and very durable...June 28, 2018Purchased
over 2 years agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesEasy tie down solutionInstead of doing your best Boy Scout knot exercise, these are super easy. Just thread/adjust the line thru the clamp, hook attached to the plane and the hook attached to the ground and you are done. Hooks are not that big to prevent hooking to the ground and the plane.August 28, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5As usual the survey is not taylored to the product in questionThe packaging did not enable a 'ready-to-use' mode. A tie down should not require pages of instruction. I would have to question the durability of the plastic catch - mislabeled as a 'unique turn buckle' - which it technically is not. I actually expected aluminum.October 27, 2015
