If your able to make ProLockers work they are much less of a hassle. Quick twist of a pin and your off. No straps to mess with. I've been using them for several years. Ebay is the place to buy them. I think I paid about $90 each.

E track all the way... In my 22' enclosed I put 2 8' tracks on both sides over the axles to secure the stander then 2 4' tracks, width wise, in from the side door to secure either a WB or push and then 2 5' vertical tracks on one side wall to hold ladders. Many e-track accessories are available to clip into the track
Love it...allows for many connection/tie down points within the trailer.

I will be using E track and recessed D rings with backer plates. I just need to figure out where everything will go in my trailer and start cuting holes for the D rings.

Good job O1Thump. I have been running open trailers for over 35 years. I am ready to go with my new enclosed trailer and see how that goes for me. Tired of everyone being able to see my valuable equipment and tired of the weather taking it's toll on everything. Great job with what you did for sure.

They aren't Etracks

This is the rough stage of a trimmer bracket

You can space your locknuts out with washers to keep the bracket snug to the rack. Its just a strip of steel, a Ubolt some washers and a padlock with a 2" shackle. It sits pretty low, and your wrist wont bend enough to touch it. You can also tack weld the nuts when you get it adjusted.

Thump. I love what you did with with that open trailer. It looks like you really put some thought into it. I also like the Idea of the home depot bags on the engines. It keeps them out of the elements. Ill have to steal that one from ya.

M&L, thats some creativity there. if it keeps the thieves away, thats all that matters.
