    Just a little FWI.
    Needed some new 1" ratcheting tie downs for our quads and what not. Went to Kmart and Advanced auto(A/A), they both carried a Highlander brand. Kmarts were made in China and Advanced autos line was designed and assembled in the usa with some global parts, for about the same price. When you compared the two side by side the China ones had cheaper ratchet mechanisms, same with the cam lock styles. Downside of A/A, poor selection and no 4 pack of the 10' ones I was looking for.

    Went to Meijers and they carried Keeper brand straps. Made in the USA. 4 pack of the 1300lb 1" ratcheting straps was $19.99, same price as Kmarts china ones and better quality.

    I don't like the cam lock style because they loosen up faster than Madonnas cloths!
