    Hi guys, I'm curious to see what your opinion is on the fastrap system. I have seen many posts on this forum from around 2009 (all very good reviews) but haven't seen anything recent. I'm curious to know how the durability is (especially over the course of a few years) and if it's worth the money. I'd love to stop wasting time by using four ratchet straps every time I load up the mower. What's your opinion? Thanks! :)

    I like them. I purchased two, but only use one. I have been using them for two years. Only problems are the screws rust out. I do leave a lot of debris on the trailer. Works really well.

    I have two sets on my open trailer and they work great for my zero turn and walk behind. As for durability, I don't know, since I've only had them a couple of years. It takes me just a few seconds to strap or unstrap them and they hold really well.

    They are awesome. They hold up pretty well, the design is so simple. Ratchet straps are always breaking unless you buy the really good heavy duty ones, and if you're going to pay that kind of money for straps, just get the fastraps that are way better in the first place.
