Another one here that uses Faststraps. Check on Sportsmans Guide for the best price on the 2-pack. I strap mine down primarily so they won't bang into each other. This equipment costs too much to take chances on, and the Faststraps take less than a minute to secure - even less when unloading.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

One Prolocker doesn't even come close to satisfying the containment rules. The equipment must be secured against movement forward, rearward, laterally and vertically. All 1 Prolocker keeps from moving is one tire.

The intent of the law is not to keep the equipment attached to whatever is carrying it in the case of a vehicle collision or accident. If that were the case then the attachments would have to be able to withstand impacts in excess of 100 G's. The intent of the law is to keep the cargo from shifting and possibly causing an accident. None of the required attachments is required to provide more than 1 G of force.

Fastraps are the way to go. If I'm only moving around the block, I might only strap one tire down. If I have to travel several miles I buckle both down. As for unstrapping, I can do that from the mower seat as I am starting up. I've had mine now for about 5 years.
