BASIC PROCESS


Fitting the ERS tie down straps is an easy process once you have the basics down. The main procedure involves looping around the cross bar correctly and ensuring the spring lever is depressed and catches correctly.

PLACE BUCKLE

Place the buckle with the cushion side down near the edge of the board at the top of the stack. Hold it in place and throw the end of the strap over to the other side of the vehicle.

LOOP STRAP

Ensure that the strap lays flat. Loop the end of the strap under the crossbar and throw it back over to the side where you started.

SECOND LOOP

Loop the strap under the crossbar and feed the end through the bottom of the buckle while depressing the lever. Pull downward lightly with the lever pressed to remove any slack. Then release the lever and pull downward harder to create a strong hold.

TIE OFF STRAP AND REPEAT

Tie off the remaining webbing to keep it tidy and secure. Repeat the process for the other strap
