The Kinedyne Floor Chain Tie-Down is designed to be used on load securement jobs on steel frame flatbed trailers. It is self-storing and mounts flush with the wooden trailer deck so that it doesn’t get in the way during loading or unloading. Our durable Floor Chain Tie-Downs are engineered to provide convenient and reliable anchor points for securing cargo....
We know that different kinds of loads require different kinds of strength, so that’s why we are offering our Standard Grade 43 Floor Chain Tie-Down, and, for the tougher jobs, we have our Heavy-Duty Grade 70 Floor Chain Tie-Down available. Both provide a strong, secure tie down point for your cargo securement job.
Operating our Floor Chain is very simple. Lift the lid of the Floor Chain Tie-Down and retract the chain. Then seat the hook of your tie down assembly between the two adjacent links of the Floor Chain Tie-Down. There, now you’re ready to reliably secure your load.
Kinedyne’s Floor Chain Tie-Downs are engineered to comply with the recommendations set forth by the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM). The Floor Chain Tie-Downs must be attached to securing points of equal or greater strength in order to maintain the established working load limits of the tie downs along with following the stated minimum welding requirements.
Our Standard Grade 43 Floor Chain Tie-Down is a convenient and reliable anchor point that doesn’t get in the way of the loading and unloading process. Once installed, it lays flush against the trailer’s floor where it retains a strong hold on the tie down assembly. Engineered with 3/8-inch Grade 43 chains for extra durability, this anchor point is built to last. The Standard Floor Chain Tie-Down is engineered with a working load limit of 5,000 Lbs. / 2,270 Kgs., offering a reliably strong grip on your tie down job with the kind of strength you’ve come to expect from Kinedyne.
Heavy-Duty Grade 70 Floor Chain Tie-Down
Reliable security and convenience is what we had in mind when we engineered our Heavy-Duty Grade 70 Floor Chain Tie-Down. Designed to lay flush against the trailer’s deck to prevent cargo from snagging on it during the loading and unloading process, this reliable anchor point is manufactured using 3/8-inch Transport Grade 70 chains for extra strength to give you the extra security you want for your trailer. As the name suggests, this Heavy-Duty Floor Chain Tie-Down is manufactured for the heavy-duty jobs with its working load limit of 6,000 Lbs. / 2,725 Kgs. Confidently hold your loads in place with this solid securement point.
Floor Chain Tie-Down Installation
Installing our Floor Chain Tie-Down is an effortless process that doesn’t take a lot of time. The Floor Chain Tie Down should be located near a trailer cross member. First measure 2 3/4" from the web of the trailer cross member to establish the centerline for the hole in the trailer deck.
Drill a 1/4" diameter pilot hole from the underside and up through the trailer deck. From the top side, use the 1/4" pilot hole to bore a 2 1/2" diameter hole through the deck. Insert either the Standard or the Heavy-Duty Floor Chain Tie-Down into the hole in the wooden deck from the underside. The top of the Floor Chain Tie-Down should be flush with the top surface of the deck. The bar must be squarely located against the cross member.
Weld the bar of the Floor Chain Tie-Down to the cross-member. Weld along both sides of bar. Do not weld chain link; it must be free to move. Note that the minimum weld requirements are 1/4" fillet welds with 1/8" penetration. Finally, clean, prime, and paint the weld and weld area to resist rusting.
