What to do when drivers run over wheel straps?

Diamond Weave
Are your drivers running over their straps?  You can train them all you want, but once they roll out of the yard, they're probably going to do whatever they want. Solutions:  Make a checklist of all the equipment and what kind of shape it is in when you put the driver in the truck.  Anything that doesn't return in tht shape is his or her responsibility and will come out of the settlement check.

You wouldn't borrow someone's car and return it without the radio?  Or with a hole in the tire?

I know straps are probably pretty far down the list of items to worry about, but there is an improvement you can order on your straps-- reinforced eyes.  If the driver drives over the wheel straps, this will at least protect the strap where it is sewn around the hook, which is typically where the most wear and tear happens. This is only available on our Diamond Weave brand of straps, which I should add  have two different patents for abrasion resistance and also edge protection.
