Review of Packem Trailer Cargo Control PK-SPTD


Today we're going to be taking a look at the steak pocket tie down anchors. These Steak Pocket anchors provide tie down points in your flatbed truck or your trailer. They are removable. They simply slide into a two inch by four inch steak pocket. They can be easily removed and reinstalled as needed. You can secure them in place with the included hardware. Now, this hardware is really unique.

It's not necessarily a pin or a bolt, it's actually two in one. These included bolts can be used in two ways. The first method is to use them with the nylon locking nuts. This is a more permanent installation for when you're moving the same load in the location with the same trailer over and over. The bolts also have a pinhole in them, which can be used with the included hitch pins.

This is a quick installation that can be easily moved for varying loads. You have the best of both worlds with this system. Again, permanent installation you would use that as a normal bolt with the included nylon lock nuts or if you want that quick mobility, if you want to be able to move these in and out, then you can use this bolt as a standard pin and clip design, which is really neat. The bots are going to have a diameter of about 9/16ths of an inch. Few measurements with those real quick. Measuring from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of the threaded portion, it's going to be about five and 3/4th's of an inch long.

From the bottom of that bolt head to the top of that pin hole, measures about 4 and 1/8th of an inch long. Now, you'll notice on the anchors, we're going to have the hinged D rings. It's going to let you attach straps from different angels. The other neat thing about putting this on a flat bed truck or a trailer is that it kind of raises that connection point. It's going to offer more protection for your straps over time, keep them from damage or from fraying or rubbing on the corners or edges of the frame of your trailer or even on your flatbed truck. The units are made from a durable steel construction. Feature some really nice welds on it and it's going to be coated with a black powder coated finish that's very strong, durable, and rust resistant.

These are going to feature a safe working load limit of 4,000 pounds. Maximum load or break strength is 12,000 pounds. Inside the ring, going side to side this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of about two and 1/4 of an inch. Going this direction, up and down, inside the ring, we're going to have a usable space of about two and 3/16th's of an inch. When it comes to the actual dimensions of the anchor, measuring from the bottom of the mounting plate to the bottom of the anchor, that's going to give us a measurement of about five and, looks to be pretty close to five and 1/8th of an inch. From the bottom of the mounting plate to the top of that pinhole, that's going to give us a measurement of about three and 3/8th's of an inch. These pieces right here are going to give us a width, this will be about two and 3/4th's of an inch wide. The plate, that measures about four and 3/4th's of an inch by one and 9/16th's to one and 5/8th's of an inch. With this part number, you're going to get two steak pocket anchors or tie downs. Please keep in mind that tie down anchors must be chosen according to their safe working load limit. You want to be sure that the weight of the secured cargo does not exceed the combined working load limit of the anchors being used. That's going to do it for today's look at the steak pocket tie down anchors.
