East Manufacturing has announced a patent-pending, integrated extruded aluminum side-rail system to accommodate a Double-L winch with flat-hook straps for cargo securement. Available on both sides of the Beast or Beast II flatbed trailer, the flat hook tie downs are interchangeable, allowing torque to be applied evenly to stabilize the load. Each tie down is movable so it can be positioned exactly where needed to firmly secure the cargo. Once the flat hook is engaged, the unique design of the rail holds the hook in place while users tension the strap, and enables them to source Double-L winches wherever they find cargo securement accessories.
