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.
