Which Trailer Tie-Down Anchors Provide the Best Overall Security?
When it comes to securing trailers and cargo loads, there are a wide variety of tie-down anchor solutions available.
The best choice for securing your trailer will depend on your trailer configurations and the type of security you need. Choosing the right tie-down security system will allow you to secure not only cargo, but the trailer itself with an extra level of security and stability.
Types of Tie-Down Anchors
Single Point Tie-Down Anchors
These anchors are designed to mount to flat surfaces and often require hardware, including a backing plate, which calls for access to the backside of the mounting surface.
Single point anchors can include:
- Movable anchors – clamp to the side rails of the trailer
- Stake pocket anchors – fit in trailer stake pockets
- Cleats – provide anchor points for ropes
- Surface mount anchors – low profile surface mounted
- Snap-Loc anchors – easy access anchor point when needed
- Recessed anchors – situated below the mounting surface
- Weld-on D-ring – must be attached to weldable surface; no backside access needed
Track System Tie-Down Anchors
This type of trailer tie-down anchor system offers a high degree of flexibility for hauling multiple items at the same time or regularly securing different types of items.
- E-track – Versatile, low profile, consists of strips of track that have a row of slots that are made to receive spring-loaded connectors.
- O-track – Light-duty, strips of aluminum track can be mounted on any flat surface to provide a continuous row of connection points for O-track cargo tie-down anchors.
Ground Tie-Down Anchors
Ground anchors are mounted into the ground to secure the tie-down tightly in place. A number of different types of ground anchors are available to suit various soil and surface conditions.
- Auger anchors – designed for soft or hard soil
- Rock or drive anchors – designed for rock or cement
