Tension and Rachet Straps - Where to buy good ones online?

I am installing a floor to accomindate the new Engel.
http://www.expeditionexchange.com/slidelock/
Giving the EE guys full credit, I would like to purchase one of the low profile tension straps featured.
Everything else I have found is clunky and the attached pic show what I am looking for.
Any ideas on there / who sells these?
For that matter, are there acutally "non China" made high quanlity rachet straps also?
Thanks in advance! COSteve

Hmm the Ratchet strap is the black thing on the floor, you can buy them around here a auto parts stores, and Home Depot, even Walmart. That one isn't high quality or anything from what I can see. It is the pull to tighten kind, not the ratchet to tighten kind.

Actually it this one, too big of a jpeg to attach.
you can see it as a tension strap, not a rachet.....

Follow-up Post:

Actually with closer inspection, the one you were looking at Mike may be a pull to tighten also.
The *42.jpg pic, the housing looked like it had less sharp edges......

You should just post your ? on the EE forum. Al Cruz posts there and that's his truck.

you can go to a hardware store or a surf shop to get the pull to tighten style straps. I've been using those for 20 years and love em. Never had a problem, I never liked the ratchet type as I always thought the hardware was too big and would easily damage the cargo (surfboards and vehicle). I can understand using them for things like staping a motorcycle to a trailer or pickup flat bed, but over kill for most cargo.

Steve,

Confluence Kayak should have those in stock. They are a half block north of 15th street on Platte River Drive. North of the big REI. Also, Mountain Miser should have them. They are located off Hampden and Broadway, littleton.
