TIE-DOWN STRAPS
Shockles ShockStrap

Forever fumbling with strapping gear onto your roof rack? You could buy a pickup (about $15,000)–or grab a pair of ShockStraps tie-downs ($33). The ShockStraps make short work of just about any rigging job. Just fling the nylon webbing over your load–kayak, duffel bag, cooler, whatever–clip it down on both sides with the carabiner (included), and pull to tighten the plastic buckle. The stretchy section of cord lets you crank down on your load–no futzing with complicated slipknots or roof-rack attachments. Smart feature: A built-in retainer cord harnesses excess strappage, so there’s no flapping in the wind. $33/pair; adjusts from 24 to 60 inches. (888) 557-6464; shockles.com.
