Not all situations call for an S-hook. Use the right hook type (S, Double J, Flat hooks, D-Ring etc.) for the right application.
Overall, I really like these straps! They are UV treated to last with exposure to sun. I've purchased other ratchet tie downs where the strap literally disintegrates after less than a year of exposure. I also like the black strap color. Most ratchet tie downs are highly visible colors like red, yellow or orange. This makes it hard to conceal from others. I prefer the dark color of this strap, because I've had several ladder stands stolen. Bright colored straps are a dead giveaway. Finally, I like that the handle is rubber coated. When cinching these down hard, uncoated handles can really dig into your hands! Loop style handles also help. Unfortunately, these ratchet straps don't have loop handles often found in more expensive ratchet tie downs, but the rubber handles nearly make up for that. If you are looking for a good value in a strap, give these a try: http://amzn.to/2jtG7jZ
