Why Take This Course

Some think that a chain is a chain, a rope is a rope and both are just as good as the other when securing a load.  However, this line of thinking can lead to disastrous consequences.  The size of the load, in width, height and weight are just some of the factors which must be considered when determining the tools best suited for the job.  It is also important to remember that both the age and the condition of the tie-down must also be a consideration.

Who Is This For?

Any person who is responsible for tying down or securing loads on trailers or on a vehicle.
