Strapping down a kayak.

Any advice on this? Bought these, absolutely no idea on how to strap them onto the roof rack? http://www.micksgarage.com/proddetai...73054&pk=CB94A

They are a ratchet set, you anchor down the hook end and ratchet the other end until they are tight.

Thanks for the reply, there's two hook ends though? So therefore both hooks need to tie on to something, kinda wondering where on the car?

ratchet straps

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPpz5bE5I-w

the video shows how to use the straps.

you can attach the hooks to your roof rack or rap the webbing around your bars and hook the end around the webbing leading to the ratchet

Not the best strap. Check out I-canoe or Great outdoors website, you will get better one there. Your better off with a 1 piece strap with a buckle.

EDIT: Here you go, and No it is not me selling these..
