Boydstun Cylinder Strap Trucks Available

This is an excerpt from the press-release sent over earlier:

Boydstun Metal Works has introduced the latest addition to their product line. The new Cylinder Soft Tie unit is now available in a 7 car Quickload trailer with a 3 or 4 car headrack. . . . The decks on the new unit have been designed to come down low enough for a driver to stand on the ground while securing cars which reduces the chance for slips and falls.

Wheel Strap for Vertical E track Delta Ring End

Take a look at the latest car tie down strap we spec'd out for new customer, Excellent Auto Carriers. It features an extra long 10' strap with D ring so he can use his chain ratchets to tighten down. Also, it's got three heavy duty O ring type fittings-- one sewn to the end of the strap, then an idler, then 3 tread grabs, then another idler. The reason for this, is so he can pull excess through, if need be, and secure wheel on both sides with idler. Pretty unusual strap set-up, but I guess in the trailer he had built for him at Trailer Tech, there was one position where a ratchet handle type wheel strap really wouldn't work as well.
