Fast straps are the best. I have Etrack in my enclosed to strap random things down, but the faststraps are quickest for the mowers. Way better than ratchets.

fast straps are sweet call the 1800 number to greentouch and ask them for scratch and dent ones it willl save you quite a bit! the ones i got had just been wet before so the box had water spots but other wise like new parts are in bags inside!

Dude if you have high enough sides you don't need it to be tied down pretty sure its 4ft.

Why don't you just get it straight from the horses mouth.
3.3.2 - Cargo Tiedown
On flatbed trailers or trailers without sides, cargo must be secured to keep it from shifting or falling off. In closed vans, tiedowns can also be important to prevent cargo shifting that may affect the handling of the vehicle. Tiedowns must be of the proper type and proper strength. The combined strength of all cargo tiedowns must be strong enough to lift one and one-half times the weight of the piece of cargo tied down. Proper tiedown equipment must be used, including ropes, straps, chains, and tensioning devices (winches, ratchets, clinching components). Tiedowns must be attached to the vehicle correctly (hooks, bolts, rails, rings). See figure 3.2.

No I don't need to. Why does he/she allow them to open their trailer anyway is the question. This isn't Iraq police just don't have you open the trailer on the side of the road without cause. Fastsraps work great by the way just so we stay on track.
