Let’s just jump into what’s wrong with this tie-down situation:
- This constitutes a single point tie down. Not only unsafe but illegal.
- No safety hook. The slightest movement of the vehicle and loss of tension could release the chain.
- Securing to the trailer hitch means that compression by the suspension over bumps will produce slack in the chain.
Use the axle straps included with the Mac’s Ultra Pack to wrap around the truck’s axle for a more secure tie down. Since there are no anchor points, feed chain extensions through the stake pockets.
Add Chain Extensions to your Ultra Pack order and save $30 versus buying them individually. Simply choose “Direct Hook with Chain Extension” before adding to your cart.
