Default Re: Tie down recs and loacation for BX

Here are the tie down brackets I made. I used existing bolt holes in the frame and got longer bolts to maintain full thread engagement. These are the recessed rings I have in my trailer floor. On a steel floor, I weld them in and try to place them as close as possible to a crossmember. On a wood floor, I also get them as close as I can to a crossmember, and bolt them through the wood and use a 1/4" steel back-up plate under the floor to spread the load out. In a steel floor, I cut a hole out with a holesaw. On a wood floor, I take a router and cut out a pocket for the ring to sit into.
