    Called round bar tie down, working with factory on new trailer. Deck will be 6” thick, flange will be to thick for chain slots, don’t want to loop chain around bar and back to itself, hard to get binder close to deck if needed, plus they come un hooked when trying to hook up.
    Maybe weld plate to beam then bent D ring?
    Looking for ideas to pass along to engineers designing trailer. Trailer will have a 10” ride height.

    Consider 7/16 grade 100 pull ups every 16 inches or every 2nd or 3rd crossmember boxed to outside rail and crossmember.
    You can also redirect from the roundbar to another pull up if needed.

    D rings diffently. Here is a idea i have tought of, recessed D rings, may require a little engineering.

    We have a Nelson rgn with a similar deck. We call it a mini deck because the deck height can get a low as 9 inches depending on shims. It's not good for anything heavy but I like it.

    The securement bar is handy but a bit of a PITA to feed hooks a chains through. Especially if the load overhangs the deck.

    I would get some good quality slip hooks with latches for one end of your chains. Maybe even a few for one end of your ratchet binders if you need to hook directly to the tiebar.

    Hah... The way my boss is. He'd probably sell it but you wouldn't like the price. He's lucky like that. Making money on the crappiest if deals.
