Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. announced that its Adjustable Load Securement System (ALSS) option for its flatbed trailers now is available for all types of hauls, including coils. Utility’s ALSS is another load securement option for Utility’s 4000A Flatbed, Drop Deck, Tautliner curtainsided trailers and Conestoga 2.
Utility now is making the system available for coil hauls when ordered with the optional J-Hook tie-down plate “stops” designed to prevent fore and aft movement of the J-Hook tie-down plates, which is essential for proper coil securement. Utility’s ALSS provides an additional tie-down location for load securement over and above winches, side rail and pipe spools.
Traditional tie-down devices such as chains, cables and web straps can be connected to the ALSS movable J-Hook tie-down plates. The new system features a working load limit rating of 6,500 pounds per tie-down plate, which matches the current rating for the heavy-duty aluminum pipe spool on Utility’s 4000A flatbed. An optional J-Hook Tie-Down Plate Storage System can be mounted to the trailer’s main frame beam and can hold up to 12 tie-down plates.
