Quick Tiedown

The end product looks nice but the price point is a bit high.

I built my entire system for about $25 in material and an enjoyable afternoon in my garage with some coolies.

I used to think the same thing till one day coming down my parents road and I hit a frost heave (good size hump in the road) I was doing about 50km/h my truck jumped and the atv went with it and when the truck landed again the atv smashed my back window (I had a power rear sliding window too! in my f150) $1500 dollars later I replaced the rear window. From that point on I always tie it down from all 4 corners! That happend to me about 7 or so years ago. Its cheaper to tie it down trust me! I was so preeved at myself to say was an understatement. It was a gorgous snowy morning and all wanted to do was drop by parents to say hello and head out for a ride and SMASH!! My day is fkd.

Plus, you are responsible if you atv for whatever reason leaves your truck (roll over, vehicle accident etc..) It can not leave the truck period. Other wise you stand getting pulled over by the Ministry of Transportation and fined HUGE! or the Provicial Police will get ya either one is going to be expensive.

Guys in our group that have enclosed trailers seem to get away with that but I certainly wouldn't on my open trailer. I believe we have to have 4 straps on it cross-braced.

In Ontario, loads (i.e. recreational vehicles) must have at least 3 points securely fastened to the trailer or truck bed.

noting winch cables on your machines do not count as a secured point.

the MTO (ministry of transportation of ontario) would give you a heck of a ticket for not straping your bike down. they're starting to pull guys over and inspecting the tie downs. the law in ontario states that the vehicle has to be tied at all 4 corners. they would give you a ticket for that system.

even worse is the cops have the authority also to pull you over and inspect your load. what the heck to they know loads? getting coffee and donuts don't need to be tied down. haha.

it's a great country we live in too bad morons run it........

Thumbs up

I like it. That is a pretty clean looking setup. I've got a couple of questions maybe you can answer. First, is there a place for a padlock thru the lockdown mechanism incase you have to leave your vehicle unattended? Is the lockdown mechanism adjustable so it will fit Independent Rear Suspended quads, specifically Can-Am's TTI rears? And how much does it cost to ship the kit?
The price doesn't seem too bad, there's a lot of steel in there, plus fabricating, welding and powder coating. Not to mention the designing and patent costs. If you could get the price down to around the $225 to $250 range I don't think you'd ever be able to keep them in stock.
I carry my ATV in the 6 1/2 bed of my truck so I always have to ratchet strap it and I have a cement block in front of each front tire to keep the nose of my quad away from the back window. I don't like the permanent mounted tire chocks because I haul all kinds of stuff in the bed (like sheet lumber) so I like how this system is removable. After dealing with ratchet straps 6 or 8 times a weekend sometimes, this system looks right up my alley. Make sure you post another thread on this forum when more become available. I'm definitely interested. (P.S. offer more colors... blue & black)
