    Hi there Colts,

    I attach them to the holes in the frame above the A-arms. I don't have the style that bolts to the trailer, though. The ones I have, have hooks at both ends. Never had one loosen at all.

The work great on motorcycles because they tend to bounce a little more than a UTV, and will re-tighten so they don't come unhooked or fall over. I know i'm probably not explaining that the best but there is a difference in some of the retracting tie-downs.

    On my 2nd year with these ratchet straps and really like them. I've used the holes above a-arms (background in pic #2) in the past for tie down point but recently installed Yamaha A-arm skids so lost access to those holes. I put this together instead.

    The eyelets are where the swaybar endlinks connect so if you've discoed the swaybar, just go for it. If not, it's easy to put the endlinks back on if you just tie them up.Name:  DSCF0670.JPG

    Thanks for that info, when I get home from our camping trip next week I will have to see how things will line up with my trailer setup and the Wolvy, I like the idea.

    Mine are bolted to the trailer. The front hook ends go to the bumper brackets and I use a ball and bungee to keep it in place. The rear ones go to the hitch holes for the receiver.
