Bolt It On is one of the best ways to secure your motorcycle or bike inside your vehicle.
Tying down motorcycles and bicycles in vans, toy-haulers, and enclosed trailers usually means creative threading of bikes, handlebars, and tie-down straps. Then heaps of blind faith that it all stays put as you travel to your destination.
Both pedal-powered and motorized bikes grow increasingly expensive. So do vehicles, RVs, and trailers. If a motorcycle works itself loose, costly damage can ensue, taking some of the fun out of the excursion.
The Bolt It On restraint is an incredibly heavy-duty motorcycle and bicycle lashing system. The American-made system holds heavy adventure motorcycles without a maze of tie-down straps. In our testing, it kept everything secure. The modular design of the components allowed 5-minute installation and removal as well as reconfiguration to fit different needs or vehicles.
The downside is the cost, with a single bike system starting at $330. But the Bolt It On will last a lifetime.
Heavy-Duty Materials & Design
The standout characteristic of the Bolt It On system is how robust each component is. The brand makes everything out of laser-cut, high-grade-alloy steel and applies a durable black powder coat. All welds are consistent, and every part, even the smallest ones, has a heavy-duty, industrial feel.
