Retractable transom tie downs

11 posts in this topic

I need to know where I can find the company that makes the transom tiedowns that you mount on your trailer. They are spring loaded and reel in when you are not using the. I had these on my old boat and loved the. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any of the big outdoors stores will have them. I picked up a set last year, about 50 bucks. They are great, no more busted thumbs un doing the tension straps.

I've seen them at the Man Mall (Aka Fleet Farm) as well for a little cheaper. I want to get a set for my boat this year.

Greatest thing since sliced bread. Cabelas, Gander, and FF all have them.

I read the reviews on one of the big box stores and not the one you find in minnesota, and much of the reviews say they did not last and the springs broke. they say they would not retract, and many say they got 6 months to 1 year of use. has anyone else had good or bad expierences who has had them for an extended period of time?

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
