I don't have any lever binders anymore since I saw a guy at work split his head open releasing one..Home Run Inc where I work supplies ratcheting binders only so this will not happen again..The lever type is quicker but can bite you if you let it..

if i use lever binders after i lock em down i then take the extra chain left over and wrap it around the lever of the binder. glad to see you want to chain it correctly .anything worth doin is worth doin right especially where safety is concerned. you might loose the trailer and load but there still together where ever they end up. another thing i learned was your trailer safety chains on the trailer to tow vehicle. , they must be crossed, right chain to left of tow veh. , left chain to the right of tow vehicle. x again.

when I ever get a trailer I'll be using chains.

Since I only occasionally borrow them, I use straps. Crossed... to the axles.

Ratcheting Binders are great... as long as you carry a can or two of WD40. Otherwise, they always seem to be rusted solid when ya need em.

Re: Tieing these things down on a trailer

In the picture of fredrader's steel trailer, I would be concerned abt the lateral tensile strength of the welded seam on the recessed tie-down D-link and its attachment point(s). It's a scary thought of the D-link spreading apart and becoming disconnected, (also, using only one continuous chain would become ineffective if one D-link fails). Those recessed tie-down pts will probably hold just fine, but I suggest adding an additional chain loop from the trailer's frame (outboard stake bracket or similar) to the 715's axle. Just my 2cents.

Observation made that those are two rear chains not one.

Nice trailer by the way. Do you mind taking a couple pictures of the ramps deployed?

I had a truck hauled years ago that had a chain run between the mailbox and the cab over the frame on the fuel tank side and under to the opposite side of the trailer. When I received the truck, I'm sure you guessed right that the fuel line was crushed.

Almost forgot to add, as I haven't seen it here anywhere yet.

The trailer needs to be AT LEAST 77" wide for a stock truck on stock NDTs. That's how wide the trailer we used was and it just barely made it through the fenders. Probably coulda used some crisco on the tires.
