    Comments about NRS Heavy-Duty 1" Cam Buckle:

    I needed to make some custom hold down straps and started researching cam buckles. The NRS cam buckles are the best engineered and are only a little more expensive than the cheap ones with single springs and poorly designed grips and levers. I never thought much about cam buckles and now appreciate the difference in what is holding our kayaks to our roof rack.

        ALMOST all straps are black. To be able to tell my straps from others, I chose a bright red webbing paired with NRS cam buckles. Had them sewed at local shoe repair store. Custom made straps, with the best cam buckle.

              Q:

              Are these buckles steel with zinc plating?
              Are they cast or forged?

                A:

                The buckle frame and thumb tab are solid cast zinc. The pivot pin and springs are stainless steel.

                A:

                Well, the hinge pin is steel (reacts to magnet), the body of the buckle is not steel (does not react to magnet). Not sure I am qualified to determine cast vs. forged, but I think they are cast. Hope that helps.

                I sear the edge of the webbing and double it over an inch or 2....then just sew the heck out of them on the sewing machine....back and forth and back and forth and back and forth in an increaseing zig pattern....then turn 90º and zig it along from egde to edge....all on a household sewing machine.

                Take a look at the 1" HD Straps - http://www.nrs.com/product/1440/nrs-1-hd-tie-down-straps - where you can see how the webbing has been stitched on. A home sewing machine with proper needle and thread can be used, or you can have it done by an upholstery shop or other professional sewing establishment.

                Go to a sewing store and buy a heavy duty needle and some heavy upholstery thread. Sew it on yourself. If you’re not that handy (and if you’re not, you have no business with these straps) you can take them to a shoe repair store and for a couple of bucks they will sew them on for you professionally.

                I use several of mine around salt water and they get salted up easily. I
                soak them in Salt Away solution then lube with Boeshield and they seem to

                A small shot of wd-40 will usually take care of the problem.

                A:

                Try a good dose of WD-40. If corroded, use an old toothbrush and clean up the hinge. Check that steel springs still work (the little steel spring succumb to fatigue eventually). Should be fine. If not, buy new. They’re cheap enough. I live in Hawaii and even the best stainless buckles don’t last more than a couple of years in a marine environment.

                Robin, try lubricating the spring and hinge with a lubricant like WD40 or silicone lube.

                A:

                Depends on how strong you need them to be. I hand sew them. But, if you want a super strong strap, take it to a shoe repair shop. I went to one that wanted $5 to sew a single strap. A little negotiation got it down to $2 a strap.

                I took my buckles and straps to a shoe repair shop. The old guy there had a industrial sewing machine and stitched the strap to the buckle for me, using another NRS strap as an example. I'm sure the old guy's stitches are as good as the original straps, but I only use those re-sewn straps for lashing smaller stuff in my boat, and use the real straps for securing my boat to the rack on my car.

                We use a box stitch for securing straps to buckles. You can see the pattern on Item # 60001.01. Any good solid stitch pattern will work. It can be done on a home machine; if you don't have the ability to sew them yourself you can take the strap and buckles to a place that does commercial sewing, like an upholstery shop.

                I don't know if the manf can establish the working load and ultimate load for the buckle alone since it is part of a system.
                The limit state would be the strap rather than the buckle.
                I just bought some straps for work. Those straps had a factor of safety between 3 and 4 between the working load and the ultimate load.
                If your loads are less than 1500 lbs or so, the buckle will be fine. That load is limited by the width of the strap.
