I have the same straps from the same company. Just make sure that you center the strap and really reef on the winch good and tight! I have a tailgate and the first time I used them 1 came loose. But after the proper tension I have never had any issues!This is a follow up to this thread, E-track mounting and ramps
I secured the entire outside edge of the E-track on the truck and got at least 1 screw in every 16" along the inside edge. I can hang my 250lb weight on it and it does not move.
I got the Erickson chock and strap kit, Wheel Chock | and Strap Kit to have a chock and a place to mount the inside of the tires. I could not do inside and outside of the tire as the kit recommends since I do not have enough space. The chocks are mounted right over a frame rate and I used 3" bolts and went though a 2x4 on each side of the chock under of the deck.
I have secured machines a lot of ways and I will say this is rock solid. The machine doe not move at all even with just 2 straps on.
My question, for others that have used this kind of system, is are you ever worried about the tire strap sliding out of position or off while going down the road? With as solid as this holds I do not think it will be a problem but I have always had something that went "around" in some way.

Freaking BrilliantI had a lot of issues with the strap sliding off. With the suspension compressing and releasing and tires moving in and out I would lose at least a strap every mile while offroad. Never had much problem on the highway.
I ended up designing and 3d-printing strap centering blocks. They have a keel that fits into the tire lugs and a lip on each side to capture the strap. This solved my problems, and they don't slip off anymore. View attachment 670533
Look Awesome.. I'm going to zoom in to see the Brand
The axle strap. Is the same Height. As my celvis to my receiver. so unless I am going to bounce a couple of feet in the air. I think I will be ok. I hope you’re diaper gets emptied. On a regular basis.The way you have that axle strap around the upright on your trailer isnt a good idea. That strap can slide upwards when given the chance to.
Dude, he was just saying your strap on the trailer upright looks to have about 3-4” of upward slide available. Thus if it slides your strap will then be lose.. not a D**k comment at all😳The axle strap. Is the same Height. As my celvis to my receiver. so unless I am going to bounce a couple of feet in the air.

Yes you are right. That picture was taken when I loaded it after it broke down. Let’s just say I was in a hurry. The strap should’ve been over the top rail behind the upright. Thanks for the input.The way you have that axle strap around the upright on your trailer isnt a good idea. That strap can slide upwards when given the chance to.
Mine are rounded square tubing. But I can see were other ones are made out of angle iron. That could “cause a problem I’m sure.Be careful of straps on edges of the rails etc.
I had a HD 2” strap wear out over a 500 mile trip many many years back.
I had it going over the angle iron rail on a trailer.
I caught it at a gas stop before it broke but it was 90% gone.
