Always inspect load securement devices regularly before use. Inspect chains, hooks and binders for wear, cracks, stretch and any signs of fatigue. If working load tags are damaged, removed or can not be read, assembly should be discarded. Use corner protectors or padding on loads with sharp edges or corners. The lashing capacity of any chain is reduced by 25% if the corner radius is less than the nominal chain size. NEVER use extender (cheater) bars on loadbinders. Always ensure that load securement devices are evenly loaded and secured so that it does NOT become loose or unfastened.

Each cargo securement system must be able to withstand a minimum amount of force in each direction. Forward Force = 80% of cargo weight when breaking while driving straight ahead. Rearward Force = 50% of cargo weight when accelerating, shifting gears while climbing a hill, or breaking in reverse. Sideways Force = 50% of cargo weight when turning, changing lanes, or breaking while turning. Upward Force = 20% of cargo weight when travelling over bumps in the road or cresting a hill. This requirement is satisfied when the cargo is “fully contained” All elements of the vehicle structure, anchor points and tiedowns must be strong enough to withstand the forces described above (see guide table on number of chains and tie down straps required for loads in weight on following pages). Always ensure each tiedown is attached and secured so that it does NOT become loose or unfastened, open, or release during transit. Minimum number of tie downs required will also depend upon the length of the article(s) being secured. When an article is not blocked or positioned to prevent forward movement by a bulkhead or headboard, or by other cargo that is positioned to avoid movement and other appropriate blocking devices, loads must be secured by at least:

A) One Tiedown if the article is 5 feet (1.52 metres) or less in length, and 1,100 pounds (500kgs) or less in weight.

B) Two tiedowns if the article is 5 feet (1.52 metres) or less in length and more than 1,100 pounds (500kgs) in weight.

C) Two tiedowns if the article is longer then 5 feet (1.52 metres) but less than or equal to 10 feet (3.04 metres) in length, irrespective of weight and more than 1,100 pounds (500kgs) in weight.

D) Two tiedowns if the article is longer than 10 feet (3.04 meters), and one additional tiedown for every 10 feet (3.04 meters) of article length, or fraction thereof, beyond the first 10 feet (3.04 meters) of length.
