    I'm going to drill a hole in the side of my pogo stick near the top, and weld a 1/2" nut to it. Then I've got some 1" round stock I can slide in there, and tighten the bolt down, so I can raise and lower it in the future. Meanwhile, I was disconnecting the trailer, and while I was taking out the ISO plug, I ripped the guts out of it, so I get to do some more wiring too!!!!!
     
    Crude Truckin' and D.Tibbitt Thank this.

    Get an almost worn out 2" strap and ratchet and bolt or rivet them to the frame. Cut off all the excess strap so you never have to worry about it sailing in the wind.

    This is just me, but I would get another spring. They're not strong enough to disconnect your air and, spaced properly, makes certain the lines don't drag on the cw.

    You need to secure the sticks better, I have a driver who got one nice ticket for it being strapped in Arizona. I've been harrassed by my own state for my sticks being just strapped to the holder on the end of the trailer.
