These straps are awesome!!
Use these straps with the Dakine wrap pads on the factory installed crossbars on my 2012 Ford Escape. No complaints. They are really sturdy, tighten and hardly ever loosen (if you're driving all day on the highway, stop every couple of hours just to give an extra pull), and show no wear after hauling 3 longboards at a time all up and down the east coast. I don't think I'd ever buy anything else but these. Totally recommend!
