Default Ratchet strap locations that won't break anything.

I personally have snapped a rental carts horizontal steering rod on trails at an outdoor golf cart trail park. What are the strongest places I can put ratchet straps around. I don't have the tire harness tie downs and we are loading it up for a trip tomorrow and just realized I need a tie down plan.

I have read to criss cross it to the truck bed corner tie downs in the front and rear, and some do one across the floor.

Thank you!

I always strap corner to corner of my trailer across the rear axle and front crossmember.

As long as you have 4 points of straps, you don't really have to crank it down that hard to secure it. Snug it down and it will be fine

I strap from the front lower tie down in the truck bed back to the rear leaf spring front mount. But my cart is lifted.

I used a product like this for years on my tractor.

I agree, snug is just fine so it cant move front or back.

I agree with the guys above..... PLUS if you are going to be driving at highway speeds, I have seen more than one roof pulled off, so I also put a strap across the top at the front and back. better safe than sorry.
