  • Availability of Erickson Car Tie-Down Straps With Ratchet
  • We do have a car tie-down kit from Erickson that is very similar to the one you referenced, though the Erickson Tie-Down with the Multiplier Ratchet and Swivel Hook is no longer available. Instead, I recommend the Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit with Ratchet # 08504-05, which like the kit you mentioned, is 7 feet long, has 2 inch wide axle straps and a 10,000 lb break strength. Each also has a 3,300 lb safe working load limit which will affect how many straps you need. For example if the car...

  • Recommended Tie-Down Straps for Transporting TrailBlazer and Traverse on Car Hauler Trailer
  • The Erickson Ratchet Tie-Down Strap with Web Clamp and Snap Hooks, part # EM58501 that you referenced, is suitable for your application to secure a vehicle to your flat car hauler trailer by its tow hooks, but we also offer shorter straps like their 7-foot Car Tie Down # 58503 which also has hooks on both ends. To use either of these you'll need tie-down hooks on the deck of the trailer. If you need D-Ring tie downs you can use # LRB1 from Brophy. If you prefer you can use 4 axle straps...

  • Car Tie Down Straps for Towing 2006 Chevy Equinox on a Flat Bed Trailer
  • The heaviest model 2006 Chevy Equinox weighs just under 4,000 pounds, so if you use at least four of the Erikson Car Tie-Down Straps, # 08504-05, you should be fine. The straps have a maximum capacity of 10,000 pounds and a safe working load limit of about 3,300 pounds. More contact points is better than less, so if the vehicle and trailer allow, I would use 4 straps to spread the load and keep the car steady on the trailer. You can order these online by following the link below, or you...

  • Recommended Vehicle Tie-Down Straps for 2020 Chevy Blazer
  • The Bulldog Winch Combo Axle/Ratcheting Vehicle Tie-Down Straps - Qty 4 # BDW20230 are a great way to secure your 2020 Chevy Blazer to your car hauler. Axle straps are superior to tire straps and are going to be more secure overall so these are definitely the way to go. The straps use twisted snap hooks to prevent accidental detachment. They also have gold-zinc plated steel ratchets to resist corrosion. The safe working load limit of each strap is 3,335 lbs so it will be more than enough...

  • Tire Tie Downs for E-Track in an Enclosed Trailer for a Sports Car
  • For your trailer the tracks have openings that go front to back. To secure vehicle tires you would need the openings to run left to right like # E19148. Then you could use # 77314 which has e-track fittings. But we can make it work by using a couple of tie downs, # E59143, and ratchet straps such as # EM34416. If a vehicle has smaller or larger tires you would just place the tie downs in the appropriate spots on the tracks. Vehicles that are wider or narrower may still work on the same...

  • Tie Down Strap Recommendations for an Infinity GNW 500 Car Hauler
  • Since you never know what you might need to put on your car hauler I recommend going with something that has a high capacity such as the set of 4 Bulldog axle tie down straps # BDW20230. They are rated for 3,335 pounds working load and 10,000 pound break strength. It is important though to go by the working load limit for any strap. I have included a link to a video review of these straps for you.

  • Recommended Wheel Tie-Down Straps for Tesla Model 3 on Car Hauler
  • Based on my research the Tesla Model 3 has 18-20 inch diameter wheels/rims that are 8.5 inches wide and uses 235/45R18 or 235/35R20 tires. I recommend using the Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap for Extra-Wide Tire - Vertical Mount - 3,335 lbs # BDW20362 for the tires on your Tesla. Traditional wheel straps won't fit the low profile wide tires, so this style strap is the best option for the application.

  • Are Car Tie Down Kit 08504-05 Straps Long Enough for 8.5 Foot Wide Trailer and 109 Inch Wheelbase
  • The longer strap included with car tie down kit # 08504-05 is 7 feet long. So depending on the width of your enclosed trailer and where the attachment points are it is very possible that 7 feet will be long enough. The 7-foot long version is the longest we have available. Assuming that you have a attachment points closer to the rear as well as at the front then the 109 inch wheelbase should not be a problem.

  • Strap Protector Recommendation to Protect Vehicle from Rubbing when Transporting Kayaks
  • Yes! To protect your vehicle from rubbing from your tie-down straps, I recommend using the Erickson Chrome-Protector Sleeves for Tie-Down Straps - 12" Long # EM06305-2. These are the longest protectors we have for kayak straps. In order to get the length of protection you need, you need to order 2 sets. I went ahead and attached a demo video for you to check out.

  • Tie Down Solution for Corvette on Open Car Hauler
  • This question is refined by several decisions. What will you use for tie down points on the Corvette? What will you use for tie down points on the trailer? How easy do you want it to be. Finally, what looks good. If you are OK with climbing under your car each time to hook into the car and then connect to the edge of the trailer, you can simply use the QuickLoader # Q64FR ratchet straps. You will need to consult your Owner's Manual or Manufacturer for appropriate tie down locations...

  • Car Tie Down Ratchet Straps for Hauling Vintage Model T and Model A on 23 Foot Car Hauler
  • I looked over the various tie down options, and wasn't able to find anything that met all the parameters you mentioned. The Erickson # 08504-05 you mentioned comes the closest, but we don't have anything that has a longer strap. If you can live with S hooks, you could use the # 58505 axle strap along with the 2 x 27 10K ratchet strap, part # EM69627. You can always shorten the strap if need be. Fulton offers a 20 foot by 2 inch winch strap with a 10K capacity, part # FWS20HD0200.

  • Will Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit Work With Car
  • It depends on the car, which would have to be very light. The reason for that is the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM09160 is only rated for vehicles that have a maximum weight of 1,500 lbs.

  • How to Secure a Vehicle on an 8 X 18-foot Wooden Deck Car Hauler Trailer
  • To secure your vehicle on the wood deck of your 8 X 18-foot car hauler trailer I suggest you consider straps rather than chains. Straps offer lighter weight, reduced chance for scratching the vehicle and are often easier to use than chains. They also will not corrode like chains. The Dutton-Lainson 40-inch cables you referenced are intended for use with tow bars for flat-towed vehicles. We have better options for you. For example, we offer the Erickson Car Tie Down, part # 58503. It can...

  • Recommendation for Wheel Tie Downs to Secure Jeep Rubicon to Car Hauler
  • To secure your Jeep to the metal deck of your car hauler, I recommend taking a look at the Erickson Car Tie-Down Kit # 08504-05. These straps feature twisted flat hooks that will help to keep the strap straight and flat along with axle straps to help secure the vehicle into place. They have a safe working load limit of 3,300 pounds and a maximum load of 10,000 pounds. I recommend using these with E-Tracks like the 4 Foot # EM19147, which can be bolted to the metal deck of your trailer....

  • How To Secure a Car with Raised Letters On Tires Using Wheel Strap Tie-Downs
  • Yes, the Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap part # EM58523 is exactly what you are looking for as it does not come into contact with the face of the tire like the Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-Track Fittings part # 77314 does. These will both hook into the Erickson Horizontal E-Tracks like part # EM19147. I have attached a list of the different lengths tracks we offer as well as a photo.
