I have noticed a trend with Ancra. At one time they were the best tie down made. Now the buckles are so cheap that the return spring breaks through the buckle rendering the tie down useless. I just got 2 pair of new ones already broken. I sent a e-mail to Ancra weeks ago and no response. Now you are better off going with another brand. Until Ancra solves its quality issues I will no longer purchase them.
