If my lazer flys over my two foot sides, and clears my truck in order to hit another car then i could not have stopped it with anything i could do. That would be stricktly an act of god. And if it jumps straight up and clears my four foot back ramp that is secured, then again i would have to put my faith in god. I dont have little side rails like some companies. I want to keep everything in.

You know, we all should tie down our lazers though. They have such a good chance of flying off and landing in a windshield of another car. Or so it is that others would have us believe. AND, if you got hit that hard where your 1200 lbs lazer migrated OVER all that, then what chance do you think you would have of actually surviving the initial accident anyways? Come on guys, think about this. Use your brains before spouting off emotionally drivin dribble. Geesh!

Hey you guys who use fast straps by green touch, do you strap down both back wheels or can you get by with one? I have a 44 inch walkbehind, do you think I could get by with just one back wheel strapped in?

all you guys wont have the same additude about securing your equipment when it falls off and kills a mom and her kids behind you, and for the one who said a strap isnt gonna hold it down come on man just dont get the $.99 ine get a quality one to do the job o and also on your walkbehinds that constant back ond forth movement while having it in gear will eat your trans over time so to me its more thant worth the 2 minutes at every house
