Making sure that your cargo is tied down and fully secure for the journey is important for any towing job. Not only is unsecured cargo a danger to you, your passengers and your fellow drivers, but it can also cause damage to your trailer, pickup truck bed or vehicle cargo area, as well as to the cargo itself. Together with our cargo straps and safety chains, CURT tiedown anchors are easy to mount in any trailer, truck or full-size van, and they help keep your items safe for the road ahead. This particular D-ring tiedown anchor is designed to be welded onto a metal frame to add a solid anchoring point for cargo straps, ropes, cables or chains. It features forged steel construction and a capacity of 18,000 lbs., making it strong enough for many commercial and industrial applications. The heavy-duty D-ring and bracket feature a raw finish to be readily welded on, and the ring offers a large opening to accept clevis hooks.
