Utility securement system now available for all flatbed loads

The adjustable load securement system (ALSS) from Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is now available for all types of loads on Utility flatbed trailers, the company announced.

ALSS is a load securement option that had previously been available only on Utility’s 4000A flatbed, Drop Deck, Tautliner curtainsided trailers, and Conestoga 2 models. Utility is now making the system available for coil hauls when ordered with the optional J-Hook tie-down plate “stops.” These “stops” prevent fore and aft movement of the J-Hook tie-down plates which is essential for proper coil securement.

Utility’s ALSS provides an additional tie-down location over and above winches, side rail and pipe spools. Traditional tie-down devices such as chains, cables, and web straps can be connected to the ALSS movable J-Hook tie-down plates, the company said.

The system features a working load limit (WWL) rating of 6,500 lbs. per J-Hook tie-down plate, which matches the current rating for the heavy duty aluminum pipe spool on Utility’s 4000A flatbed.

An optional J-Hook Tie-Down Plate Storage System can be mounted to the trailers’ main frame beam and can hold up to 12 J-Hook tie-down plates.
