    Hi guys, can some of you guys assure me that 5 ton ratchet straps are ok to secure a 350 lte baffled pure freedom water tank into a 2.0 litre dispatch, too many advising to get a tank bolted to chasis. i know a lot just use these ratchet straps.

    Depending on how its being attached, I would have thought the anchor points would have failed before a set of 5 tonne straps would.

    Some people attach 'Spreader Plates' to the underside of the vehicle to enlarge the load force area of the anchor points.
