Who is responsible for inspecting securing devices and cargo within the first 50 miles?
A bulkhead is defined as:
A vertical barrier across a vehicle to prevent forward movement of cargo.
Option #3 for securing metal coils transported with eyes lengthwise includes all of the following except:
Option #3 is the same as Options #1 and #2, except that the two tiedowns that attach through the eye of the coil are replaced with two tiedowns that pass over the front and the rear of the coil.
Attach at least one tiedown over the top of the coil near the front of the coil.
Attach at least one tiedown over the top of the coil near the rear of the coil.
Use blocking or friction mats to prevent forward movement.
What types of freight need to be secured properly?
When securing an intermodal container on a chassis, what is the maximum allowable vertical travel when secured?

How much force is the securement system required to withstand in terms of cargo weight?
All elements of the vehicle structure and anchor points must be strong enough to withstand the forces described on page 7.
When securing building materials, how many tiedowns are required for top tier bundles longer than 5 ft?
Tiedowns over the top tier of bundles with a minimum of 2 tiedowns over each top bundle longer than 1.52 m (5 ft).
If you were instructed to 'tarp' a load, what would you be using?

Studying the flatbed cargo securement CDL manual is not a requirement for getting your CDL permit or license. It is required knowledge for flatbed drivers.
Some questions you should be able to answer for flatbed cargo securement:
Any device specifically manufactured to attach or secure cargo to a vehicle or trailer:
A combination of securing devices that forms an assembly that:
Some tiedowns are attached to the cargo and provide direct resistance to restrain the cargo from movement.
Some tie-downs pass over or through the cargo. They create a downward force that increases the effect of friction between the cargo and the deck. This friction restrains the cargo.
A combination of securing devices which form an assembly that attaches cargo to, or restrains cargo on, a vehicle or trailer, and is attached to anchor point(s).
Cargo is contained if it fills a sided vehicle, and every article is in contact with or sufficiently close to a wall or other articles so that it cannot shift or tip if those other articles are also unable to shift or tip.
A structure, device, or another substantial article placed against or around an article to prevent horizontal movement of the article.
Tiedowns can be used in two ways:
Place the tiedown as close as possible to the spacer.
Position the tiedowns as symetrically as possible over the length of the article.
Position the tiedowns to preserve the integrity of the article.
