These cargo tie-downs are the easiest to use of any tie down's I've ever used. No need to "secure" the loose strap that would flap in the breeze. No need to worry about folding and securing the strap when it's not in use. It simply reels in like a seatbelt. Neat & Tidy... easy to use. Absolutely worth the price difference compared to the two part cargo straps. An added bonus is that if you hit a bump that could normally cause a strap to come unattached or loosen on the load, these actually tighten if they get slack.
