    I can’t even imagine what everything cost in the video I linked.

    If you look up the company on SMS they have a few violations for improper securement, or damaged securement, or not having enough securement. But at least she puts it all on the Internet for everyone to see.

    It dawned on me, watching that one and the one she gets fired in. The girl is trying to be ghetto...and as far as I'm concerned, she has succeeded. Self-absorbed, and clueless. Watch the one with her fired, and then they let her come back. She has that roll of coils, the first she's ever had to pull, and the first things she says is that she hopes that the guy who secured it knows what he's doing. She totally personifies this narcissistic, self-absorbed(again) and clueless generation of phone/camera swipers. I'm surprised this company hasn't come under more scrutiny with this demonstration of the ongoings and caliber of drivers they're happy to have. Calling all DOT.. :) SMH

    On a serious note, how do you pull a chain through those spools? Do they have a narrow guide tube or something inside?

    I’ve hauled spools with super small openings like that once. At the shipper they had, basically a 5th wheel puller with a smaller hook end. You take off the clevis hooks with pliers removing the pin. Stick the puller into the reel, hook the chain, pull the puller back out dragging the chain out. Reconnect the clevis hook with the safety pin.

    Pain in the ###.
