Cargo Bars for Load Securement
Each one of our Cargo Load Lock Bars comes with non-slip grip rubber pads on each end. In order to make sure your cargo is secure with these bars, you need to have two surfaces to work with. It could be the walls of your trailer, two sides of a truck bed, or even a wall and a piece of cargo. As long as both surfaces are stable and strong enough to hold it, you can use it to secure cargo.
Start by lifting the Ratchet Handle on the bar so that the bar can extend freely, and pull out enough so that the base end is touching a surface, and the other is a couple of inches away. While keeping the bar straight, start ratcheting until the bar is completely secure between both surfaces. Once in place, your cargo is safe, and you’re free to get moving or double up and add another bar.
Cargo Bar Construction
Our Steel Ratcheting Cargo Load Lock Bars are made with galvanized steel, formed into 1.5” diameter tubes making it lightweight and extremely durable. Both ends of the bar come with 2x4” rubber pads that prevent even the slightest bit of slippage during transit. It also features a ratcheting handle to get stronger than hand tight grip and can extend from 89” up to 105”.
Load Bar Accessories
A Bolt-On Hoop can be installed onto a Cargo Bar and increases the surface area of the bar allowing you to restrain more cargo. Each hoop is made out of galvanized steel tubing with a diameter of 1”, and comes in a set of two.
Load Lock holders keep cargo bars secure when they are not in use. They can hold up to two cargo bars with 2x4” feet or 4x4” feet. If you value security, the locking mechanism on the storage rack supports padlocks allowing you to lock up your cargo bars, keeping them safe from thieves.
We carry replacement rubber pads for Load Lock Bars in the event that the 2x4” ends get damaged or don’t cover as much as you want. Each End Pad is made out of rubber and comes in 4x4”.
Where are Cargo Bars Used?
Cargo Bars can be used in enclosed trailers, any truck bed, or small trailers as long as the distance between the surfaces you’re working with doesn’t underside 89” or surpass 105”. Ideally, any Class 3 truck can support Cargo Bars as long as the bar fits and depend on what you’re hauling, can support up to two or three extra bars. Because of its size, the best trailer to use a cargo bar on would be a small utility trailer or tractor trailer. If you’re looking for more ways to keep your cargo safe and secure, Mytee Products has a variety of equipment to choose from.
