Great and handy bit of kit.
I bought some of these to hold down some kit on a motorbike trip, I did 10000 miles and never had a problem with these straps, that was years ago now and I still use them today, still going strong. Get a couple and keep them in the boot of you car, always come in handy. If you have an ounce of practical ability about you then they are easy to use and no instructions required.

Just the job!
Worked just as described. Threading the strap from underneath is a little tricky but the strap stayed very tight. Other commentators suggest that it was difficult but I didn't experience too much of an issue. Good value for just over a fiver.

It seemed just the right thing, 5 metres of webbing strap. BUT it did not indicate how wide it was. I normally see webbing straps on various trucks and lorries doing deliveries. So it looked like I was getting the same. NO. these Straps are only 1 inch wide or 25mm. I was expecting 2 inches or 50 mm.
Such a disappointment. I think the description needs to be improved on the website.

Don't buy Master Lock lashing strap.
This lashing strap is VERY VERY difficult to use.
Threading the strap through is far too difficult; it took me 20 minutes to feed the strap though the first time. (Black metal buckle different to B&Q photograph.)
I have a similar strap which I got from B&Q a few years ago which takes seconds to fit.
NB if you don't feed the strap through properly it will slip and you could lose your load! (Feed through from underneath as arrow on side of buckle.)

Avoid if using regularly - Poor & fiddly to use
"This is my first review as B&Q stuff usually reasonable quality....This is NOT.
For a lashing to have any strong grip the loose end needs to pass through from underneath and back on itself through the grip bar. Most of the underneath is blocked in so it takes an eternity to feed the flexible strap through. If I'd kept the packaging this would have gone straight back.
Also No instructions on use so I'm sure most people are feeding end through from the top resulting in there being virtually no retaining grip . Will probably throw this away as it annoys me every time I go to use it and I can do without the STRESS !!"
