    I'm fishing for thoughts on what is the best but yet fastest large deck tie-down for an open trailer. Who makes it and how much? My mower is the quickie 32.
    thanks

    Set the parking break if it has one and use a rubber tie down with a hook in the end of it for each front wheel wrapped around the steel tubing to the trailer.

    I just use a ratchet tie down to hold it in. I run the tie down in between the front casters and the trailer side. Just to make it quicker I tie the excess strap and that way when I take the strap off the ratchet part doesn't get separated from the strap part.
