new aircraft tie down in town

Postby turbo » Sun Aug 05, 2012 10:14 am

i just received my http://www.stormforcetiedowns.com/ from my trip to osh and other points west. this is lookn like a great solution to the tie down issue. will give a report when i ground it and give it a good pull with the auto. thanks to tom for doing some research on a well needed tool.

Chocks are to keep a plane from moving. Tiedowns are to hold the plane down in the chocks. The only pull that matters is straight up. That is the direction to test.

this tie down is not designed to be located below the tie down ring like the claw. http://www.stormforcetiedowns.com/How-To_ep_45.html look here.
