    Right now I'm using tie downs connected to eye hooks. It's slow and the walk-behind bonces around and it is not as tight when I get somewhere as was when I left. Any Ideas?

    Rachet straps for the Z and the big walk behind. Just straps for the 21" I am looking for a better system myself. I am just not convinceced Prolockers is going to save that much time.

    Look at the Fastrap straps. Fast and VERY strong. We used to use the ratchet straps but the Fastrap is much better.
