Tie-Down violations like the one pictured above remind us that we have an obligation to provide the industry proper tie-down education. If you have question call us at 800-666-1586 . That’s what we’re here for!
- The tie-down strap at the rear is wrapped around two knife edges. The sharp tail of trailer will surely slice through the webbing.
- Using one tie-down strap at the rear is insufficient. Don’t skimp on tie downs at the rear of the vehicle.
- The front tie-down strap is routed through a stamped steel wheel with a chrome cover. That material will surely cut through the webbing as well.
