Car Tie Down Straps


Car Tie Down Straps can have several different methods for the perfect securement depending on the vehicle. The one thing that remains throughout your preferred method of car tie down straps is you should always make sure to use four different securement points to help balance the load and weight distribution of your tie down straps. Although it may not always be possible you should always attempt to secure your vehicle from equal distribution points such as the front left wheel, front right wheel, back left wheel, and back right wheel.

We also have a wide selection of different Lasso Straps that are extremely easy to use as they are light in weight and easy to store. Lasso Straps are easy to use and are secured by feeding the strap around and eventually back through the O Ring fitting and secured through the use of a Ratchet Handle to tighten the tie down. Lasso Straps can be used around the outside of the tire or through the middle of the wheels depending on personal preference.

The reason this is so important is if you are driving down the road and require a sudden lane change, sudden stop, or if the load were to shift your car tie down straps would be less likely to break as well as keeping your vehicle secured as there is a higher fail-safe. What is fail safe? Fail-safes were created in order to help provide other layers of protection against sudden movements that tie down straps may struggle to be rated for. Traditionally this is done through the use of the working load limit that allows one-third of the total amount of force before the straps have reached there breaking point.

Wheel Nets?


Wheel Nets is one of the many different ways of wheel tie downs for wheels on vehicles being the most common. One of the perks for wheel nets is they have more than one strap that goes around the width of the wheel, rather than just simply over the top of the wheel. Not only does this cover more of the wheel and make it become more secure than a single strap would but wheel nets are also sometimes adjustable as you can secure from different sides of the wheel as well.

Shippers Supplies has several other types of car tie down straps and car trailer straps available in our online store such as Axle Straps, Car Tie Downs, and Wheel Nets just to name a few many different methods of securing a vehicle for transportation. Sometimes certain vehicles require a more custom method of securement for transporting, as being one of the leading manufacturers of tie-down straps in the United States.

Different Types of Car Tie Down Straps


Axle StrapsAxle Straps come with a Cordura Sleeve wrapped around the polyester tie down webbing that is more resistance to cuts to help extend the life of the tie down strap. Axle Straps are used with ratchet straps with snap hooks hardware and is the most common method of securing a vehicle to a trailer.

Axle Straps are extremely easy to use as you simply loop the axle strap over the axle and attach both of the rings at the snap hook of the ratchet strap. Once you attach the axle strap to the snap hooks of the ratchet strap you can attach the snap hook of the ratchet strap to the trailer and begin to tighten the axle strap until desired securement strength for your vehicle.

Lasso StrapsLasso Straps is also one of our more commonly purchased car trailer straps that we supply for the car tie down industries. One of the reasons behind the lasso straps being so popular is due in part to how quickly you can secure vehicles through the use of S Hooks and Ratchet Straps.

What makes a side mount wheel net so popular is the ability to be fully adjustable for a great fit no matter if you are securing a vehicle or car with a small tire or large tire size.

What are Tie Down Straps?


Tie Down Straps can be called anything from Ratchet Straps, Tie Downs, or Cargo Straps and are used to secure cargo. Some of the many different types of applications tie down straps are used for include securing a vehicle, securing cargo on flatbed trailers, pickup truck bed securement, and trailers just to name a few of the many different popular uses.

There are two main types of tie down straps one piece tie down straps and two piece tie down straps. One piece Tie Down Straps can also be called Endless Loop Straps and function just like a belt does by going around the cargo and coming back to itself to be tightened for securement. One piece tie down straps is more commonly used to secure cargo together rather than securing cargo for transportation.

Two Piece Tie Down Straps come in two separate pieces and attaches each end of the tie down strap to the rails or other securement points before tightening each piece together to become secured usually through the use of a ratchet mechanism that tightens until desired strength.
