A device placed between the deck of a vehicle and car or between articles of cargo, intended to provide greater friction than exists naturally between these surfaces is:
A device placed between the deck of a vehicle and car or between articles of cargo, intended to provide greater friction than exists naturally between these surfaces.
Methods to keep a cradle from sliding include:
Prevent the coil from rolling by supporting it:
Requirements for securing a non-cubic shaped boulder with a stable base include all of the following except:
Secure each boulder individually with at least two chain tiedowns forming an X pattern over the boulder.
Pass the tiedowns over the center of the boulder and attach them to each other at the intersection by a shackle or other connecting device.
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.
Which of the following is not a requirement of wood used as blocking or bracing?
If wood is used:
How many tiedowns are required on a stack of shortwood loaded crosswise?
Use two tiedowns to secure one stack of shortwood loaded crosswise.
Attach the tiedowns to the vehicle frame at the front and rear of the load.
Position tiedowns approximately 1/3 and 2/3 of the length of the logs.
Specific securement methods are required for boulders that:
Weighs more than 5,000 kg (11,000 lb.) or has a volume greater than two cubic meters
Is transported on an open vehicle or in a vehicle whose sides are not designed and rated for the transportation of boulders.
Aggregate Working Load Limit is defined as:
The summation of the working load limits or restraining capacity of all devices used to secure an article on a vehicle.
If loading and securing paper rolls on a second layer:
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).

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.
