to those that use straps, what part of the mower do you run the strap across over through under what ever? Usually i pull it tight against the front of the trailer and a strap around the back pulling it foward against the trailer. I am trying to decide if this is the best way or not, so i thought i would get some ideas from you all..

later!! chris

Try the green touch straps like 25 bucks a set.

I put the front of the mower against the front of the trailer and strap it around the caster support arms, then put the brakes on the mower. One strap only. ill try to find a pic.

I just push it to the front and run a strap around the arms as well. My main reasoning is to keep it from bouncing up and down on me.

I would suggest to just go out and buy some prolockers. You will probably go through at least two straps a year, at least that is what happened to me. They would either break or be covered in grease from the front yokes. The prolockers will last longer than the straps and less hassle I feel

I bought 2 prolockers during the sale. Haven't used them yet, but I am anxious to give them a try.

You will not be disappointed Tom. Heck, if you need any help installing them I would be more than happy to come down and help.

I bought two during the sale also.
Tried 4x4's, straps, and everything cheap. :nono: Was never satisfied with the security.

Do yourself a favor and get the ProLockers. That's how I secure my ZTR and it's one of the best investments I've ever made.
