Trade Rack Tie Down 1
The TiteTie is a very useful tool when it comes to transporting timber or items stacked on a roof rack or trade racks. In the diagram to the left, this is an example of how to correctly tie down planks of timber if you choose to stack them to one side.
In the diagram note that the rope’s fixings are on one side of the vehicle. This makes tying and releasing the load faster and safer as you only need to access one side of the vehicle.
This tying technique places downward force as well as lateral force toward the racks holding the timber firmly and preventing it from sliding and twisting during the vehicle’s stopping and cornering.
The TiteTie when used on trade or roof racks is suitable when tying down loads such as:
- Timber Planks
- Pipes and Guttering
- Garden & Building Long Handled Tools
- Camping Equipment
- Farm Supplies and Equipment
