I have an AI with the small Hobie trailer. When I bought the trailer I also purchased the Hobie tie down straps that are custom fit for the AI. These are the kind of tie down straps that are mounted permanently to the trailer.

I am about to pull the trigger and upgrade to a TI with the new TI single trailer but I do not see any tie down staps in the Hobie catalog.

Are the tie down staps no longer offered?

I see normal one-piece universal tie down staps and also the steel core security straps in the accessories catalog but not the type that are designed to mount on the trailer. I really like the ones on my current trailer they are super quick and are always adjusted perfectly.

I use the Steelcore straps. Made in USA. I I have 2-pair, I just run them through the scupper holes. On each side front and back. Holds great and locks it up at the same time. I tried the SPT straps and they are Chinese junk. Bent the keys on the first try.

Any reason the trailer mounted tie downs are no longer available?

Can I get TI ones from another manufacturer?

I really like them because they are so quick to deploy when you are on a crowded boat ramp and people are waiting for you.
