WOAH, to me, there looks to be a lot wrong, but i don't know, I definitely want to hear a more experienced observation.

Cylinders are not all properly secured. I'm sure everyone can see that...

There is more than that, but that part is obvious.... Or is it?? confused.gif

I have seen some crazy looking securements on various youtube videos. Some looked wrong fto me, but were fine. Some looked good, but were wrong. This one looks obvious, but after the youtube vids, I am left with more questions, than answers.

Dude says he secures them like this all the time and has never had ano issue. Straps are outside the rub rails plus I'm not sure I would ever use straps on a steel coil. If he should have to take evasive action the straps may break or get cut. Also there is no blocking for the coils.

He has edge potectors, and the front bof the lead coil is chained. It looks like another chain is used further back. But the two middle coils look like there are no straps, or chains, so I assume they are through the center. But the streaps on the rub rails, from the little I know, is wrong. The rest just doesn't look right to me either, but at the same time, it sort of does. I only know that I would probably do it differently.

I haul coils every day some big 60000 to 70000 lbs some as small as 8000 lbs and I can assure you no coil I have ever hauled has been nor will it ever be secured that way now I have also hauled slinky coils and you have to Daisy chain them if they are loaded suicide but still not shown above. Now I have seen some guys do it that way trying to rush.
