tire strap for ztr

Will this strap work for a ztr?

http://http://www.northerntool.com/s...1249_200451249

I put a couple section of the etrack on my trailer. The rear wheels sit on top of it. I tried using a strap with a cam buckle but the kept coming of the tire while driving. I then tried a rachet strap but unless I crush the hell out of the tire cranking it down it will slide off the side of tire too. I think the ztr is shifting to the side on the trailer causing this to happpen. Thought about the faststraps but I have heard of this being a problem with them too.

Link isn't working for me but I've done similar by putting D rings in the trailer floor in front and rear of the mower tires. Cut a couple ratchet straps down to length, hooked the strap to rings and over the tires then ratchet down, worked great. Wish I could do it on my newer trailer but it seems like we're always loading different for different jobs now.

Fastraps. Not a perfect solution, but I've used them for 10 years with few complaints. If you set them up correctly, and tighten the straps sufficiently, you will have very little problem with shifting side to side. The one thing they will often do, is loosen if they get wet, so just be sure to check and tighten after a shower. (not much of a problem this year!

Spotman's Guide is the least expensive place I've found to order them from.

the fast straps work fine for me. The ones in the link look ok but I think they would take too long

the basket portion of those will probably be too long to work correctly and are a little on the way overkill side.

i used something like this http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...4935_200344935 and cut off the excess length.

and these d rings http://www.tractorsupply.com/flip-ty...s-load-3018272

Why's everyone always focused on these elaborate tire contraptions
just as easy to strap one down via the frame and sides of the trailer...

That's because I'm guessing you haven't used Fastraps. There is no way you can hook up cinch straps frame to trailer nearly as quickly, or with as little effort.
