I need to buy some cycle car rack straps. It's to strap a trike to a towbar mounted platform style rack so the buckle will be in mid air so to speak. Which buckle is best - ratchet style, ladderlock or what, to avoid it working loose.
The wheels will be individually strapped down but I wouldn't just trust those
For discussions about bikes and equipment.

For similar purposes I use cam buckle straps, like overgrown toestraps, metal buckle always not plastic. Quick and easy to fit and remove, ratchet straps are more time consuming, I used them years ago to tie motorcycles in vans or on trailers. This sort of thing https://www.theratchetshop.com/ratchet- ... gLKMvD_BwE I believe you are talking about a recumbent tricycle, important distinction because the c of g is lower and no significant weight further up. Back in the days when we used to cram ourselves into cars to go racing we carried trikes (not recumbent) on a roof rack with each wheel secured by a toestrap with never a problem.
