Colin McLemore took on the competition to prove the superior strength of Mac’s products. He purchased a generic 1″ tie-down strap from a big-box store and tested its Maximum Breaking Strength against a Mac’s 1″ tie-down strap.
Even before the destruction test began, a side-by-side comparison of the two straps showed the Mac’s product to be superior.
Mac’s 1″ Tie-Down Strap
- Wide, comfortable handle
- 3/8″ vinyl-coated S-Hook
- Double-box, X-pattern stitching
Generic 1″ Tie-Down Strap
- Narrow, sharp handle
- 1/4″ S-Hook
- Single-box, X-pattern stitching
In the end, the more expensive, generic 1″ tie-down strap failed at 1,500 pounds while the Mac’s 1″ tie-down strap exceeded 3,600 pounds.
