Load securing tips according to trucker Tik Tok
Trucker Tik Tok offers tips and tricks on securing cargo for new drivers or those just looking for a quick refresher.
“My best attempt at info truckertok!” reads the caption of a video explaining how to fix uneven beams with a chain.
“Look at this. I have this big beam right next to this little angle iron here,” says @mattfoutstrucking1.
“So when you throw your chains away, they don’t touch that. They are not secure because the chain passes right over them. So what I had to do was throw the chain over, then under, then over to wrap it around and gather it.

“That one [load] is actually quite easy. You can get fillers that are just poorly constructed…. You can’t get under it or you don’t have enough chain and you have to do something crazy. He then explains how a board could also have helped secure the uneven load.
The second video, titled “how I install straps”, is slightly more basic than the chaining tips and explains how a flatbedder sets up their straps, with a camera angle that shows the process.
