Sometimes I wish we had strap connections on the reefer side. Those load bars can fall down during transit. Seems like straps is the way to go.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Nice work. Thats the way you do it!! Load locks by themselves are useless unless you are hauling marshmallows. You need the straps to pull the sides of the trailer tight against the load locks.
