These 18″ long looped nylon extension straps are the perfect solution to not having to worry about damaging your bike from the metal tie downs while getting ready for trailering. Instead of looping the tie downs close to your bike simply loop one of these straps around your bike and attach tie down to the looped end. This keeps the metal tie down ends away from your bike. These extension straps are rated at 3,500 lb. assembled strength and are sold in a two pack.
