Expert Answers about Car Tie Down Straps


  • Stake Pocket Anchors Compatible with Bulldog Winch Tie-Down Straps
  • I think we have just what you are looking for. Check out our Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor, # WFSPDR. This anchor mounts in the stake pockets on your trailer and gives you a d-ring tie-down point. These will work great with the Bulldog Winch Tie-Down Straps, # BDW20230 and they have a weight capacity of 4,000 lbs per anchor, which is as much capacity as you will get out of pretty much any stake pocket anchor. I attached a photo that one of our other customers submitted using these stake...

  • What Does Safe Working Load Limit of Load Binder Mean
  • That's a good question, because working load limits (WLL) can be somewhat confusing, but I can explain it for you. The 9,200 lb WLL of the Titan Chain Ratcheting Load Binder for 3/8" - 1/2" Thick Chain # TCRB10 simply means that the binder itself is rated for weights up to 9,200 lbs, but that is separate from the chains. The number of chains you need is determined by their WLL. For example, if you had an 8,000 lb tractor,. you would need the aforementioned binder, as well as two of...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Tire Straps That Will Fit a 33" tall Tire and Connects with Snap Hooks
  • I have a couple options for you as the SmartStraps Ratcheting Wheel Net with Snap Hooks # 348851 will not fit your 33" tire. The ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks # 317-18900 are designed to fit a tire up to 12-1/2" wide and 33" tall. Each strap has a working load limit of 1,830lbs.

  • 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...

  • Vehicle Wheel Tie Down Straps For 225/55R19 Tires

  • Best Way To Secure a Vehicle To a Trailer
  • The best way to secure a vehicle to trailer is with a wheel net. This takes the guess work out of finding tie-down points on the vehicle and it's the most secure method. The easiest option would be to install e-tracks like the etrailer Horizontal E-Track part # e42VR and then use the Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap with Roller Idler and Ratchet part # EM58523. If you don't want to install tracks then you can use the traditional style, the SmartStraps Ratcheting Wheel Net with Snap...

  • How Far Apart Are Mounting Holes For Erickson Horizontal E-Track EM19147
  • The mounting holes are 2 inches apart, and to ensure its full capacity we do recommend screws in every mounting hole for the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # EM19147. While we do not have the mounting hardware, the mounting holes are 1/4" diameter, so that's the size you'd want, with the correct length depending on how thick your wooden planks are; just be sure to get wood screws which I'm sure you knew but I just wanted to be thorough for you. This will work great with the Erickson...

  • Recommended Wheel Straps For Attaching a Vehicle With 205/65R15 Tires To a Trailer With D-Rings
  • I'm going to recommend using the ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks # 317-18900 as these adjustable straps are going to have the length necessary to fit your D-ring mounts that are set 46" apart. The wheel straps on these are also adjustable which will make fitting to your specific 205/60R15 tires much easier. With the SmartStraps Ratcheting Wheel Net with Snap Hooks # 348851 not having an adjustable wheel strap it will not likely reach your D-rings mounts spread...

  • Can SmartStraps Adjustable Wheel Net be Installed with Anchor Points Outside Center Line of Wheel
  • Ideally you'd want the anchor points for a wheel net like the SmartStraps # 348851 to be in-line with the wheel, but since these are rated for 3,333 lbs (each) and you're using them for a Jeep you'll be perfectly safe to install them slightly off-centered. In fact, the demonstration picture from SmartStraps shows them slightly off-centered (see attached). The lateral pull wouldn't stress your tires out.

  • 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.

  • Minimum Strap Length of Bulldog Winch Combo Axle/Ratchet Straps
  • I spoke with Bulldog and the length of the non-adjustable strap piece on the # BDW20230 is going to be 12" long; the minimum strap length when the straps are fully ratcheted is going to be around 24" from the end of one hook to the end of the ratchet strap connected hook. I've attached a picture to show what I'm referencing. If you were looking for a different measurement, please let me know and I can work to find it out for you.

  • Best Tie-Down Straps For Hauling A 7,500 Lb Tractor
  • I recommend the Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Vehicle Tie-Down Strap part # BDW20349. The kit comes with 4 straps with a safe working load limit of 3,335 lbs per strap so they will be plenty enough to tie the 7,500 tractor down. The straps measure 2" wide x 8' long and are the strongest option for the heavy load you will be carrying because they are designed to tie-down vehicles. I have attached a video for your reference.

  • 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...

  • Wheel Straps for Large Size Tires Over 35 inches Tall and 12 Inches Wide
  • We have the Bulldog Winch Ratcheting Wheel Tie-Down Strap for Extra-Wide Tire - Vertical Mount - 3,335 lbs # BDW20362 which is very similar to a wheel net and is compatible with diameters up to 37 inches. It is 9 inches wide so it won't fit over the sides but it is specifically designed for extra wide tires. This is my recommendation for you. We also have wheel nets like # DM03528-93, # UF46-700034, and ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks - 12-1/2" x 33" - 1,830...

  • Can Wheel Nets be Used if Car Hauler D-Rings Aren't Inline with Car Tires
  • The D-Rings can be a little out of line with the tires but you still want them fairly close. If this is the case for your car hauler trailer then you can definitely use something like the ProGrip Adjustable Wheel Net with Ratchet and Snap Hooks # 317-18900 for your application. This fits tires with up to a 33" diameter and that are 12-1/2" wide so it should fit your application just fine. Please note that this comes in a quantity of 1.

  • Recommended Ratchet Straps for UTV Trailer That Are Easy To Operate
  • For a 2" wide strap for your UTV trailer I recommend the SmartStraps Ratchet-X Tie-Down Strap w/ Double J-Hooks - 2" x 30' - 3,333 lbs # 348167. This is a little bit longer but I think the mechanism will be the best for a strap that fits your needs since there is not an option like your CargoBuckle that is long enough or wide enough. This has a large, padded Power Grip handle which makes it easy to hold and operate. The release is easy to operate and padded as well. It has a safe working...

  • Are the Erickson Wheel Nets Wheel Specific for a Left of Right Wheel
  • The Erickson Replacement Adjustable Wheel Net for 14" to 29" Tires # EM58518 are designed so that you can set the adjustment mechanism/clamp to either side of the tire, so that they're always on the outside and easily accessible. These are designed to be a replacement strap and come as a single wheel net, so if you also need the ratcheting mechanism you'll want to use the Erickson # EM58522. These wheel nets do not come with a flat hook option, and the hooks cannot be swapped out since...

  • Wheel Strap Recommendation for Use With Multiple Sets of Tires Under 30" Tall and 12" Wide
  • The Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-track Fittings # 77314 are adjustable for use with tires up to 29", so they're going to be just a bit too small for your widest tires. 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. You may want to consider the ProGrip Adjustable Wheel...

The Maverick Sport also looks to have a dry weight of under 1,600 lbs, which is within the capacity of the ProGrip. I've added a link to a video review of the ProGrip...

  • The Erickson E-Track Tie-Down Kit part # EM58523-09162-4 can be used with any size track. The correct size would come down to applications which is no something I can advise on. The tracks simply need to be long enough for the tire to sit on and have mounting points directly in front and behind to attach the tie-downs. Therefore, you could either have two long tracks or four short for a vehicle. I have attached an entire list of the lengths we offer below. In regards to strength, they...

  • Strap Recommendation for Securing Jeep Wrangler with Large Off Road Tires
  • We don't carry wheel nets that are going to be large enough to fit the tire sizes you have of 33 x 12.5 X R15 since what we have is more sized for non-offroad tires. Just looking around online I see there are nets out there that would be large enough, but you also could use ratchet straps to the tow hooks on the front and back of the Jeep too like with the # EM58629 which is a 20 foot long strap with a 3,300 lb capacity. You may also be able to run the straps around the axles.

  • The Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-Track Fittings part # 77314 will mostly likely work on a 30" diameter tire just fine however, I cannot confirm this as the manufacturer lists the max limit at 29" diameter. If you can provide me with your tire size I would be happy to look up the dimensions for you as sometimes using a tape measure is not always accurate. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Recommended Mounts For ATV Tie-Down On Flat Aluminum Trailer
  • For a flat aluminum trailer tie down, I recommend the Tow-Rax Low-Profile Floor Track for Tie-Down Anchors - Aluminum - 6' Long - Machined - Qty 1 # TWSP72TA along with the Tie-Down Anchor for Tow-Rax Low-Profile Floor Track - 1,666 lbs - Qty 1 # TWSPDSTD225. I don't recommend using the DISCONTINUED Draw-Tite Truck Bed Stake Pocket Chrome Anchor Points 92509. You want to be very careful about galvinic corrosion when using dissimilar metals. These may work well because of the rubber...

  • Do Tie-Down Points/E-Track Need to Be Installed to Secure Arctic Cat to 4 x 8 Foot Utility Trailer
  • You wouldn't need to install dedicated tie down points into the trailer floor, your Arctic Cat can be secured to the trailer, but I'd rather see you use a combination of the # EM58522 wheel nets and for the front wheels and axle straps like # 88509 and ratchet straps such as part # EM51330 for the rear axle. The J-Hooks from the wheel nets could attach to the front underside of the trailer, and the axles straps and ratchet straps could secure the rear.

  • Replacement Bulldog Winch Combo Ratcheting Tie Down Strap
  • I do have an option for you but Bulldog does not have a separate part for just the strap without the ratcheting mechanism that comes in the Bulldog Winch Combo Axle/Ratcheting Vehicle Tie-Down Straps part # BDW20230. To replace one of the straps from the kit you would need Bulldog Winch Combo Ratcheting Tie-Down Strap part # BDW20229.

  • Are Safety Chains Also Required on a Tow Dolly When Using a Roadmaster Wheel Net
  • If you used a Roadmaster Adjustable Wheel Net # RM-2150 on both of your front wheels you would not necessarily need to use safety chains as these will provide an additional attachment point to the wheel chocks that are on the tow dolly already.

  • Does Triangle Ring Part of Bulldog Winch Combo Axle/Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps have to be Used
  • I will be happy to help. The reason that there is that triangle ring portion on the Bulldog ratcheting tie down straps # BDW20230 is so it can attach to a vehicle axle. But you can use just the hook portion to attach to something and not use the triangle ring part if needed and not suffer reduced capacity. I have linked a video featuring these straps for you.

  • Securing a Jeep Wrangler with 35 Inch Tall, 12-1/2 Inch Wide Tires to E-Track
  • The E-track tire strap # EM58523 is 12 feet long so it would fit. You could also use an E-track D-ring # E59143 witch an axle strap, # 58505, and ratchet strap # 58503. The D-Ring will attach to the E-track. The axle strap will loop around the Jeep axle, and the ratchet strap will hook to the D-Ring and the loops on the axle strap.

  • Should Trailer Safety Chains be Crossed Under the Trailer Tongue
  • Safety chains on trailers should be crossed under the trailer tongue. The idea is that if the coupler pops off of the ball the safety chains will catch it so it doesn't drag on the ground. We have numerous safety chain parts available and I have included a link to them for you. You would not use straps such as # BDW20230 since straps are not rated for this application. The safety chains you use should have a capacity that at least meets if not exceeds the gross trailer weight.

Based on this the Erickson Car Tie Down Kit, part # 08504-05, is a very good choice but is not by itself sufficient to secure the Jeep for trailer transport. This Erickson kit has a working load limit (WLL) of 3300 lbs, which is below the vehicle weight. I suggest you use this kit in conjunction with wheel nets,...

If you are instead looking for more of a wheel net you'd want to use something like the Erickson Adjustable Ratcheting Wheel Net part # EM58522 which fits 14" - 29" tires. There is a limit on wheel diameter for most of these wheel net type tie-downs with 30" being about the largest with...
