Tow dolly

We have a 2015 Honda. Accord we're trying to haul but the straps keep coming loose. Any suggestions ?

How new are the straps. After a couple years of use they tend not to hold as well. Only other would,be how you are tying down allowing movement to create slack.

Do they go over the tires? A picture would help. Possibly not starting correctly.

Got me on that one. I use tapatalk and that's not too hard. The ratchets depend on how you run the strap through, you need a couple wraps on the ratchet first.

You have a strap that's connected at one end of the dolly or does it have a hook?

Not a problem. I would like to see the split strap on top a little wider apart. At the bottom At least one or two wraps and then tighten it down.

Do you mean the two separate straps or the smaller one that is in the middle from strap to strap

The one in the middle from strap to strap, I would make a little longer if you can.
