    Anyone use these? Never knew they existed. By the looks you can only use them for shotgun coils... right? @Bean Jr. know anything about these? reit-200695-coil-rack.jpg

    Seen fontaine with some for suicide. I have never used them. Interested in someone's perspective.

    Pretty sweet. Even has a built in holder for them to go in side box.

    I would love to not have to carry my standard coil racks.

    I like the idea. Just not sure about the brand. I'm in the market for a new trailer but dont have to get one.

    I'd love not to have mine in the bulk head under a ton of other stuff.

    Them first Reit. Chain sliding D-rings were dangerous and should have been outlawed. Now they all have stops it seems.
     
    PoleCrusher and JonJon78 Thank this.

    I know that is a demonstration of different types of securement.


    But it's the same as a Maverick securement training video. Lol

    I have 6 of them. I figured I'd get rid of the regular racks, but no, they can not be used for suicide coils. I still prefer to use them over regular coil racks. The WLL is 10,000 each, so you would need 6, but I use all six on most coils anyway.

    All that extruded track stuff looks great until its got some age and been packed full of gravels, ice or just dented in. Every time you haul brick, block or stone the trailer is covered in grit. Those corrugated decks will fill in with aggregate over time.

    Ive pulled 4 different older abused flats and none has had a winch track that would slide full length despite being underneath and protected. I cant imagine those systems lasting long without impeccable care.

    If you don't use them regularly they will certainly gunk up with stuff but if you use them and hit them now and again with a decent strong hose or better yet pressure wash em they should be ok.

    I get a washout on my flatbed from the truck wash a couple times a month just like guys with reefer trailers do. Keeps it clean so I can slide my J plates in nice and easy.

    I wonder how well they will hold up . Me personally it would sketch me out just sitting in the track like that rather than a classic coil rack. Im sure they much easier and more efficient if u run coils all day long
