Care to elaborate?
Vehicles without dedicated tiedown points should be strapped by the axles or designated wheel restraints. Then again perhaps I drag things farther down the road.
Never had a problem with hooks falling off myself, however I have had problems with the same speed-binders the op is using.
Let me emphasize that although i have a technical background, i know nearly nothing about the "right" way to transport.
The first points in my OP are that standard grab hooks obviously work fine, but given the option for "standard grab hook" -plus
- "retainer clip" i'll choose the lock/retainer - it makes it slightly
easier to chain up as everything stays in position no matter the orientation, and it could, maybe/theoretically, help in a severe incident (without having any
safety draw back AFAICT).
I agree that by the axles would be ideal, but as I found earlier in nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?
(I'm the OP) that was not possible. It's really inexplicable to me that this major-brand tractor does not have dediciated
transport points, at least as an option.
What problems did you have with these binders (and I'm using two styles - a "standard" (red), and the yellow folding peerless brand)?
