Default Trailer lashing points

All things being well, I shall be collecting a (new) old 1/2ton ex military trailer, very similar to a Brockhouse. Much more at home behind the Land Rover than the home built contraption.

I was looking at securing rings/ lashing points for my ratchet straps but all the types I can find look a bit weedy.

I'm after something surface mounting as I don't want to cut big holes in the floor.

What do other members use?

Phill.

I know a certain forum moderator uses these on his trailer. Very well made with M8 thread.

I have these in my van, I have so far failed to bend one, and I use large bottle screws to tension my hold downs. Just recently my Wolseley WD lives in the van full time, two hold downs in use and engine never moves at all even during emergency stops, which are becoming more common due to the number of school mums around here who think they own the roads and are exempt from normal traffic regulations

I've used the Merc tie-downs in both my trailers to lash engines up to the weight of my Tangye at 1.5+ tonnes. They are rock solid and don't bend - can't recommend them enough.

Thanks for the replies, I have ordered a set. They will be plenty strong enough for the engines Iíll be carrying.

Phill.
