Securing Coils Transported With Eyes Crosswise on a Vehicle with Anchor Points

There are three requirements for coils transported with eyes crosswise:

Prevent the coil from rolling

Attach one tie-down forward.

Attach one tie-down rearward.

Requirements for securing a single coil

Prevent the coil from rolling by supporting it:

  • Timbers, chocks, or wedges held in place by coil bunks or similar devices to prevent them from coming loose.
  • A cradle (for example, two hardwood timbers and two coil bunks) that is restrained from sliding by:
    • Friction mats under the cradle.
    • Nailed wood blocking or cleats.
    • Placing a tie-down around the front of the cradle.
  • The support must:
    • Support the coil just above the deck.
    • Not become unintentionally unfastened or loose in transit.

The use of nailed blocking or cleats as the sole means to secure timbers, chocks or wedges, or a nailed wood cradle, is prohibited.

One tie-down forward

Attach at least one tie-down through the eye of the coil to restrain against forward motion. If possible, the angle between the tie-down and the deck should be less than 45.

One tie-down rearward

Attach at least one tie-down through the eye of the coil to restrain against rearward motion. If possible, the angle between the tie-down and the deck should be less than 45.

Note: Attaching tie-downs diagonally through the eye of a coil to form an X-pattern when viewed from above the vehicle is prohibited.

Note: If a tie-down is used around the front of the cradle, it does not count towards the aggregate WLL for tie-downs through the eye of the coil.
