Four tiedown assemblies are used on each tank and two tiedown assemblies are
used on the pumping assembly. Turnbuckles are not used on the pumping
The turnbuckles must be only hand tight. Periodically check tiedown assemblies
for tightness. Straps have a tendency to loosen when becoming damp or wet.
Position the tie-down bracket (9) on the truck bed, and connect the turnbuckle (10) between the
tiedown bracket (9) and the tie-down link (11) on the tank skid. Tighten the turnbuckles (10) hand tight.
Connect the hook of the tie-down strap (12) to the shackle (13) on the fuel tank (14).
To unlock or release ratchet (15) of tiedown strap assembly (12), press release in ratchet handle.
Hold release, pull handle down until side cams engage, and push static ratchet locks up from ratchet dogs.
This allows center ratchet spool to rotate in either direction.
Connect the ratchet to the tie-down bracket (9). Operate the ratchet handle until the tie-down strap
(12) is tight. Push the ratchet handle to the lock position.
