My trailer has U-bolts welded to the frame in the corners. However, I use the Green - touch Fastrap straps to hold my ZTR, and I like it alot.

I have been using eye-bolts for the past 2 years and they seem to work good.

I use the Fast straps from Green Touch as well, they work great, and are easy to secure and unsecure.

i welded on 8 or 10 D hooks on my trailer when i purchased it last year. it gives me plenty of different arrangements for holding down different equipment and loads.

I don't know how it is in your state, but in PA there are SERIOUS fines for not having your equipment secured.
Big fines! I'm not taking that chance.

i don't know about you but i don't like having a couple thousand dollars of equipment just floating around on a trailer. we've got some windy roads as well as WAAAAAAY too many people that have no idea how to drive.

last time i heard, CT has a $600 fine for not securing equipment.
