Safe and Secure with Erickson

Author:SEO Troop

Summer is in full swing and for outdoor sports enthusiasts, that means hitching the boat, Sea-doo, or ATV to your trailer and travelling to a cabin in the woods for a fun-filled weekend skimming the lake or hopping the trails. For others, it means hitching a trailer filled with tents, barbecues, fishing equipment, and sleeping bags for an enjoyable and relaxing camping trip. In a few months’ time, when the days are shorter and significantly colder, outdoor sports enthusiasts will be hitching their snowmobiles to their trailers for a spirited romp through winter’s chilly snow dunes. In each of these instances and regardless of the season, outdoor sports enthusiasts are looking for safe, sturdy, and easy to use ratchets and latches to secure their vehicles and trailers for transport. With over 40 years of experience in the business of selling tie-down straps and load securement related items, Erickson products are the last word in safe and secure transport.

Securing vehicles to trailers or flatbeds isn’t just a matter of tying it like you’re Saran-wrapping leftovers- you need a track to lol the vehicle and then secure it. Erickson’s (1) 8′ 6000 LB HORIZONTAL E-TRACK is so smooth to use, it should be criminal!

Not all outdoor sports are created equal. If you’re an ATV or snowmobile enthusiast then securing your vehicle to a track or secondary transport is relatively easy. However, if you’re a hunter, securing a deer or moose carcass to a trailer isn’t as cut-and-dry.
