Hard case tie downs.

Where can I get the little metal tie down loops that I see on hard bags and top cases?

You can get those at your local ace hardware.

Most trailer supply stores should have them.

I found tie down loops (do a Google image search of that term) at Ace similar to these. The hoop is much smaller and I can either run a strap through them or hook my Rokstraps hook to them. I put 2 on each side of my Jesses. Strap things on top of them or my big waterproof bag across the back.



You can find these tie down loops in one of the paper motorcycle catalogs and I am drawing a blank...someone nudge me.



Never have seen any at Lowes or HD but Harbor Freight or Northern Tool may have something similar.

If you're interested in stainless, this was, by far, the best price I found:

The first ones on this page look great and fold away with a low profile.
