    Cross chain the top and a single chain front and back on the bottoms and your good to go. That covers the weight, straps are never required on containers, at least federally.

    That's my plan, but I've heard there is a CA specific rule about straps. Scouring the internet has produced nothing so far.

    You could always just run them from rub rail over and outside the rail to the winch. Put a twist in, and just snug them? Chains for the actual securement, and straps to appease a liberal loons' prying eyes.

    There won't even be a place to hook to, except maybe the beam. And then it would be a stretch to get them to the winch.

    Thinking outside the box a little, so can't say I ever tried it, but what about connecting 2 straps and running one side under your frame, other over the load and both end into a winch?

    Ya know, that could actually work. I'm gonna call CHP Monday and see if I can get a straight answer on requirements.

    So if I understand this, your loading a sea can.
    It really is no different than any other container load.
    Two chains, one front, one rear. One strap for each 10 feet or portion of, over the top. If it is 9 ft wide, hook to your regular side rail, over the top, and to a ratchet. Don’t worry about going through the rub rail in this situation.
    you’ll be fine.

    Yeah, I think I've figured a way to hook straps to the bottom of my rail if needed. Still going to be a pia, but we'll manage.

    Post a photo, when you get it.
    Curious to see what it is. The dimensions are odd for a container. Never seen a 9ft wide, 10ft, yes.
