Secure your cargo and gear with the more compact Stratchit Shorties. Stratchit Shorties are the ultimate efficient tie-downs with stretchy ratcheting performance in a lightweight, durable strap that is 507mm / 20" shorter than the regular Stratchit. Keep your rack clean and organized with the cinching hook and loop strap that neatly stows away excess strap length. Replace all of your cumbersome ratchet straps and stop wrestling with fixed length bungee cords. Stratchit Shorties have all the benefits of a compact ratchet strap and bungee cord combined.

User to evaluate working load and requirements. DO NOT use to support human weight under any circumstance.
Check the Stratchit Shortie regularly for signs of deterioration or damage.
To ensure longevity, please remove the Stratchit Shorties from the sun and weather elements when not in use.
Make sure that the points of attachment to the vehicle or trailer are of sufficient strength to withstand the maximum loading that will be produced during use.
