Flatbed Tie-Downs: What to Use, and How

Interestingly enough we have both the cargo securement course and the New York State coil endorsement course built right into our High Road Training Program:

Cargo Securement Course

New York State Coil Endorsement Course

Our High Road Training will make it a lot easier to learn those materials than reading those manuals. We break the courses down into small sections with multiple choice questions at the end of each section. We also mix in questions you've already seen with the new questions as you go to help reinforce the answers.

Okay that's awesome - wow, I really did find the perfect site. It really looks like the perfect course for me to take to help me understand it all better so I can make my decision. Thank you Brett!

Flatbed Tie-Downs: What to Use, and How

Thanks so much, Rick. I'm in middle of using up all my paper to print out that handbook (2 pages to a sheet) because it looks really awesome - although I've been all over their site, I never got this handbook yet.

And Bud, I appreciate all that guidance. Copied it over to take some notes, and I like that I'm getting more and more the feeling that in flatbedding, once you get trained, there's a lot of room to use your brains. Not just sticking things against a wall with E-track, it's real work and I like that.

I guess I still don't understand some of the tie-downs out there - like why use these straps without hooks at the ends, the ones with loops and rings? Where do they go?

But I don't need to know everything, like you say, if I go ahead with training, they'll give me the details. But if anyone uses those kinds and wants to share, please do!

As I try to understand more about flatbedding, I'm wondering if there's a known difference between various tiedowns. I get that chains and straps are for different loads, but is there a difference in the kind of end fitting on straps? And for both, what kind of anchors do you use, and do most trailers come with anchors on them? I've seen not to use the rub rail (for flat hooks I guess), is that true across the board?

This thread is fascinating. Thank you guys for sharing all your expertise!

I'm just a curious fella, so I don't have anything to post (yet) but by replying to the forum I can get notifications of new comments, and I definitely want that because I'm finding every comment so enlightening and interesting.

Thanks, y'all, and keep up your good work. Stay cool!
