A lot of new stuff going on lately-- seems like every time I turn
around, I'm creating a new part number in the system for a custom
strap. Every once in a while, we get a customer who starts
using one of our existing straps in a new and interesting way.
Case in point, the new RV and Trailer Wheel Strap that we
just shipped to the Elkhart, IN warehouse. We discovered some
folks hauling trailers were buying a custom version of one of our
tow dolly straps and using it as a dual ratchet tie-down for their
trailer-hauling business. Bette Lakeyoungberg and her son
Brian were the folks who brought our attention to this.
Anyway, to make a long story short (as my Uncle Charlie used
to say), we went to the fabricator and took their intended use and
came up with a new design that should work really well for trailer
and RV transporters. Read about the product here, or click on the images below for some pics Bette took of her
This is what I like best about this business-- the collaboration
between us and the customers and the engineers and fabricators to
come up with new tie-down solutions. I think this is how it's
supposed to work!
