Expert Answers about ATV-UTV Tie Downs


  • Will Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Downs EM98CV Be Able To Secure 2006 Kawasaki Mule 3010?
  • Yes, the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Downs # EM98CV includes wheels chocks and straps for four wheels and will accommodate vehicles weighing in at 3000lb maximum with tires between 10" and 30" in diameter. Since your 2006 Kawasaki Mule 3010 weighs in right around 1500lbs this would be a perfect option for you. I do recommend adding two sets of the Backing Plates # e66RR to better distribute the clamping force of the bolts holding the e-tracks to the trailer. I included videos of the...

  • Which UTV Shockstraps Kit to Use when Securing Polaris Ranger 900
  • For securing a 1,500 lb UTV like your Ranger the ShockStrap kit you'd want is the part # 297-7RSBB-UTV which includes four 1,000 lb capacity ShockStraps which was designed specifically for UTV applications and would easily have the capacity needed based on what you mentioned. Each of the straps being rated for 1,000 lbs gives the overall setup a 4,000 lb capacity.

  • How is the Working Load Limit Calculated on the Erickson EM58523-09162-4?
  • I spoke to Erickson and they were very informative. That being said, the Breaking Strength and Working Load Limit will be the same for every manufacturer with the basic rule to ensure safety of 3:1. So with the # EM58523-09162-4 having a breaking strength of 3,300 pounds, the safe working load is therein 1,100 pounds. I did also ask if they had anything similar to these in a higher capacity, but they do not have anything at the moment. The e-track connections do limit the maximum weight...

  • Recommended Trailer Tie Down System For Hauling Vehicles In an Enclosed Trailer
  • For your Dodge Challenger I recommend using the Erickson E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM58523-09162-4. With this kit you get 4 e-track wheel straps that will provide you a great way of securing your Challenger. The straps will be easier to route around the outside section of the tires as you mentioned the Challenger sat very close to the ground. The straps will hold all 4 tires is place securely. This will allow the suspension in the Challenger to move freely which will be better over those...

  • Recommended Ratchet Straps for 16 Foot John Boat That Are Easy To Operate
  • If 6' is long enough I recommend the CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable Ratchet Straps - 1" x 6' - 466 lbs - Qty 2 # IMF111640. These are self-retracting straps that maintain constant tension for minimal ratcheting when tightening straps down. They have a wide, rubber-coated handle that is easy to hold and operate. The hooks are vinyl coated and the straps have a safe working load limit of 466 lbs. To release the strap you will use the quick-release lever. I have attached some review videos...

  • Recommended Ratchet Straps for Securing 1500 lb UTV
  • The # 297-7RSBB-UTV ShockStrap ratchet kit you'd looked at wouldn't have enough capacity to handle the 1500 lb weight of your UTV. Two sets of the # 297-9RSDB would offer a WLL (working load limit) of 2000 lbs which would be perfect for a UTV of that size. The straps measure 2 inches wide by 9 feet long when fully extended. The shock absorbing properties of the straps make them ideal for UTV's and motorcycles. If you click the provided link, you can see a demonstration video for the...

  • Why Are The Erickson Ratchet Straps EM98CV Falling Off My Tires
  • If the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM98CV are all coming loose, there is definitely something odd going on. First thing you will need to check is the release levers. You will need to make sure they are not staying in the release position once everything is tightened down. If they are, it would definitely explain why they are coming loose. This should also be pretty apparent as when you are lifting the ratchet handle, it should not be clicking...

  • Can Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps be Installed Directly to Trailer Frame
  • There is a hole in the bracket for the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases # EM34416 that can be used to mount it directly to a trailer, but it does look like that might be a little difficult to do and one of our reviews we received backs that up. If you'd rather go with something that's a little easier to install directly to the frame then I recommend the CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Straps # IMF18800. These are 6' long though so they are a little...

  • What All Do I Need To Haul An ATV Inside The Apogee Utility Trailer With My 2020 Lexus RX 450?
  • The Apogee Adapt-X 500 Folding Utility Trailer will have a receiver height of 16" tall. I do not have an exact measurement for your specific hitch height on your 2020 Lexus RX 450 with the factory hitch. Our aftermarket hitches ended up with a hitch height of 17-1/2" which if you have the same would result in a 2" Drop Ball Mount # DT49MR. This will include a 2" ball and receiver pin to connect the trailer. If you plan on using different vehicles and hauling other trailers our etrailer...

  • What is the Longest Length of Retractable Ratchet Straps Available
  • I'll start off by saying that you are correct that the CargoBuckle # IMF18800-77 will extend out to 6ft long and can be used at any length- so they'll work at 1ft long and 6ft long just the same. When it comes to the maximum length available, the 6ft long straps are the longest straps available in the CargoBuckle product line. However, there is a 12ft long set of Retractable Ratchet Straps with S-Hooks # Q34FR that are retractable, but work more like a regular ratchet strap. I've linked...

  • Availability of E-Chock Wheel Chocks and E-Track Strap for Honda SXS With 32 Inch Tires
  • While we do have separate E-Chocks available like the # EM09162, they require E-Track rails like the # e65VR. Unfortunately, the E-chocks with the E-track slots are only available with the # EM98CV tie-down kit. There is also no way to substitute the straps in the kit. We do have longer straps available like the Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet # EM59136. This strap is 12' long x 2" wide and has a safe working load limit of 1,165 lbs.

  • Can The G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Straps Mount On The Vertical Utility Trailer Uprights?
  • You can mount the CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Straps # IMF18800 in virtually any position as long as you are able to drill the hole for the 3/8" bolt. Most likely opt to attach the strap to the main frame as it is going to be stronger than the angle iron rails. Since those rails are welded there is a chance of the weld cracking and most trailer manufacturers do not build the side rails of their utility trailers to be a weight bearing structure. That is why I often see trailers...

  • Will Single Strap of Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Chocks be Adequate
  • As long as you place the chocks of the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM98CV in the right location so that the tires are centered for where the straps will attach they will work really well and you would not have to worry about them slipping off. Once you tighten the strap down it will secure the tire and have enough vertical tension that it would not slip off.

  • Is Steel Backing Plate Needed to Install Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit
  • The installation method you mention for the # EM09160 Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit should be sufficient to hold down your 800 lb ATV, but I'd personally feel better if you could tie in to a metal crossmember under the trailer decking or use a backing plate like # e96RR. The backing plate is made by a different manufacturer so the holes won't match up perfectly. You'll need to drill a new set of holes in each plate. I'm a big believer in overkill, and by using a backing plate, you'll...

  • Backing Plate for Use with Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit EM09160
  • Erickson does offer a zinc-plated steel backing plate for use with their E-Track products like their ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160. Use part # e96RR. You can see this item's hole dimensions and spacing in the linked photo. Since your trailer deck is aluminum and this plate is steel you will want to isolate them to prevent galvanic corrosion between the two different metals. A coating of paint or other insulating material will do it.

  • Will Drilling Hole In Trailer To Mount CargoBuckle G3 IMF8800 Weaken Trailer?
  • The CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Straps - Bolt On - 2" x 6' - 1,167 lbs - Qty 2 # IMF18800 you were looking at uses a 3/8" bolt to secure the strap to your trailer. This will not weaken the frame of the trailer given you drill the 3/8" hole directly in the center of the material on the trailer. You will want to make sure you are not drilling the hole right on the edge. I included a video of the # IMF18800 for you to take a look at.

The 1-1/2" version # 297-7RSDB has a WLL of 1000lbs per strap, so that only gives you a 200lb barrier until you are exceeding the WLL.

The other thing with these wheel nets is that they are only for use with the Erickson E-Track System Plates similar to # E19135, so if you don't have those installed on your trailer deck, you'd need to get some of those to be able to use those wheel straps.

  • We don't have a kit for 32 inch tires but you can use a few short sections of E-track such as # EM19145 or # ET4S with Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap # EM58523. And you could add a couple of chocks for E-Track using # EM09162-2.

  • Will Two Sets of the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit Work for a 3K RZR
  • Correct, using a set of the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit part # EM09160 on the front and rear (2 kits) would provide up to a 3,000 lb safe working load limit (WILL). This is an excellent tie down option for ATV's and one of my favorites. You'll just drive the ATV onto the trailer and line up with the ramps then you are ready to tie down. There's not a ton of extra strap to deal with and as they are rather thick and short, they don't tangle like most standard ones do.

  • Hitch Mounted E-Trike Carrier Capbable Of Carrying 2 E-Trikes
  • I have a potential solution here but a conventional carrier will not get this job done. A utility trailer pulled behind your vehicle, strapping in both e-trikes is a potential solution.

Secured with straps like the Erickson Re-Tractable Ratchet Straps w/ Push Button Releases # EM34416 and with each e-trike facing each other, this may work if there is sufficient width....
