New Products: Wheel Nets & Car Tie Downs

Our selection of wheel nets and car tie downs continues to expand.

We’ve launched more than 20 new products, including value-priced 4-packs of wheel nets and 2-packs of tow dolly straps.

Also, the category page design itself has been revamped, so you can more easily find a strap to fit your needs. Shop using dedicated pages for Wheel Nets, Tow Dolly Straps, Wheel Straps, Axle Straps & Auto Tie Downs, and Tie Down Hardware. The Wheel Nets subcategory allows you to shop by wheel/tire size or by specific application.

Consider these factors when choosing a tie down:

  • Type of trailer being used and available anchor points. Do you plan to install additional attachment points?
  • Type of vehicle(s) being hauled.
  • Tie down restrictions, such as for racecars, custom models, and other low-clearance vehicles.
  • Vehicle weight. The combined working load limit of each tie down should be equal to or greater than the vehicle’s weight.

New ideas are constantly being explored and tested, so check back often! Among the changes and additions rolled out so far:

Stronger working load limit

Upgraded stitch patterns for two of our tow dolly basket straps – available with flat hooks or twisted snap hooks – bring the working load limit to 3,333 lbs. instead of 2,000 lbs. This allows them to be used on vehicles that exceed 4,000 lbs.

Larger tow dolly basket straps

Extra-large tow dolly strap

Extra-large tow dolly basket straps are now an option to fit most wheels larger than 17”.

These come with your choice of end fittings: two twisted snap hooks or two flat hooks.

The loose tail of the wheel bonnet can be paired with a 2″ ratchet or lashing hook to secure it to a trailer.

Our smaller versions accommodate most 14” to 17” tires.

Adjustable wheel nets with D-rings

Adjustable tow dolly strap with 4” top strap

D-rings have replaced cambuckles to increase the working load limit on adjustable models.

Several styles featuring height adjustability have joined our lineup. Two slots on both sides of the top strap let you position the horizontal webbing higher or lower when securing different vehicle tire sizes. Simply insert the horizontal strap through the bottom loop for large tires, or jump up a level for a snug fit on smaller wheels. Tighten the front-to-back strap around the wheel with the integrated D-ring, and the loose tail feeds into a trailer-mounted winch or ratchet.

Those with a 2” top strap are ideal for most wheels 14” to 17”, while a 4” top strap provides stability around wheels with diameters of 17” or larger.

Replacement straps for professional auto hauling

2″ x 10′ replacement wheel strap

We now offer replacement straps designed for double-deck car carriers.

These assemblies are similar to our existing wheel straps but do not come with a ratchet. Instead, the loose end feeds into trailer-mounted winches.

For easy connection to the trailer deck, choose two swivel J-hooks or two double-J wire hooks.

Three adjustable, cleated rubber blocks grab a tire’s treads for extra securement.
