Where do I Install D-Ring Tie Downs on a 6x10 Wood Bed Utility Trailer


Recommendations for placement of D-Ring anchors on a 6 x 10 wood bed utility trailer.


Expert Reply:

You can attach D-Ring Tie Downs most anywhere on a trailer. You need to select the location based upon what you need to tie-down. When possible, it would be best to drill through metal to install the rings. You can mount them to the wood planks, but they will not be able to bear as much weight. Over time as the wood rots, you can end up with the rings pulling out of the wood.

Whenever possible, going through the metal frame of the trailer or using a steel backing plate would be the best way to install them.

For most practical purposes of your trailer I would install a # SR15-C in all four corners of the trailer, and then have another pair of them along the outside of the trailer bed half way between the # SR15-Cs on the outside corners. See the picture to the right for more clarification
