Weld-on D Lashing Ring Tie-Down Anchors for Flatbed Trailers

When you haul freight on your flatbed trailer, you want to be sure you are using the most powerful cargo tie-downs possible to prevent any cargo damage or personal injury.

Weld-on D rings are the strongest and most reliable tie-down anchors obtainable. Once installed, D rings are versatile and easy to use. They become part of the metal surface to which they are welded, making them immovable unless deliberately cut. They are made of thick steel with a variety of finishes available, including zinc for increased corrosion- and rust- resistance. Weld-on lashing D ring anchors' working load limits range from the average 2,000 lbs. to a fantastic 15,600 lbs.


Using D Rings to Anchor Tie-Down Chains and Straps

To anchor a tie-down chain, use a chain binder – either a lever binder or a ratchet binder. Hook one end into the D ring and the other into the chain; wrap the chain around the cargo and do the same on the other end. Use the ratchet or lever to tighten. Be cautious; chain binders are tense with stored energy and can be dangerous if mishandled.

To anchor a tie-down strap, use a strap with a wire J hook or grab hook, or use as a guiding restraint for your flat hook strap.


Smaller and Larger D Ring Dimension and Form Options

We carry various dimensions of forged steel weld-on D ring tie-downs. Note: all products include a detailed mechanical sketch.

Diameters (referring to steel thickness) include 5/8", 1/2", 3/4", 9/16", and 1". Sizes (referring to ring width and length) range from 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" to 5" x 6".

Most weld-on D rings have the option of bent form. These are especially beneficial when used to guide winch, cam buckle, and ratchet straps, as they help avoid friction and strap wear.
