      Hi everyone,

      Curious how you tie down your kart & stand in your trailer…where did you put your D-rings? Tie the kart only? tie the stand only?

      Thx,

      DR

      Great information from Ray.    Dennis, I have a few pics of where we installed the D-Rings on my personal trailer I use for my racing as well as transporting some stands and parts for our customers.  Feel free to email me here at the shop and I’ll gladly reply with a few pics for you on how we setup the trailer.

      Well it depends on the size of the trailer,

      for a  enclosed trailer   strap the stand to the wall or doors, , if the trailer is tall enough stand the kart on end strap it to the wall.  or use a stand like this Streeter Two Level Kart Stand, and put the kart stand on top or the stacker .

      You can either buy a stacker or make one yourself.
      I would not travel with the kart on a regular kart stand , they can collapse.

      I installed eye bolts and use good ratchet straps, not the cheap ones either, i want my kart to stay in place if I have to stop quickly..

      Check out these bike straps

      What ever you buy make sure the strap itself is of good quality not the cheap four for $20 specials…
