tie down mowers

Guys, was wondering how you tie down your mowers in order to insure that they are "locked" in place, but also so they can be unsecured and secured in a speedy process. Any suggestions?
Thanks

2by4 chocks on trailer floor. Not too big of a bump, but holds the mower. They are frustrating to hit w/a shovel when mulching.

I use 4 of the quick tight type of strap not the ratchet type. Hold them well. I place 2 on front of deck and 2 on rear.

I do the very same thing. I have a 12 foot trailer. The walk behind and the rider are almost a perfect sandwich between the front and the tailgate.

I use ratchet type ones sometimes and the pull type ones most of the time..

But did you know it's the law in some states that you must have them secured.

We use the rachets on some of ours and others just a real thick rope. We carry 2 or three mowers on our trailers so they really don't have much room to move around. They arent on there long anyway before we arive at the next property.
