The adjustable load securement system (ALSS) from Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is now available for all types of loads on Utility flatbed trailers, the company announced.
ALSS is a load securement option that had previously been available only on Utility’s 4000A flatbed, Drop Deck, Tautliner curtainsided trailers, and Conestoga 2 models. Utility is now making the system available for coil hauls when ordered with the optional J-Hook tie-down plate “stops.” These “stops” prevent fore and aft movement of the J-Hook tie-down plates which is essential for proper coil securement.
Utility’s ALSS provides an additional tie-down location over and above winches, side rail and pipe spools. Traditional tie-down devices such as chains, cables, and web straps can be connected to the ALSS movable J-Hook tie-down plates, the company said.
The system features a working load limit (WWL) rating of 6,500 lbs. per J-Hook tie-down plate, which matches the current rating for the heavy duty aluminum pipe spool on Utility’s 4000A flatbed.
An optional J-Hook Tie-Down Plate Storage System can be mounted to the trailers’ main frame beam and can hold up to 12 J-Hook tie-down plates.
