When it comes to hauling a vehicle on a trailer, there are many ways to safely get it done. One is to strap the vehicle down by using traditional axle straps around the front suspension area and rear axle along with ratchet ties. However, that can be tough on some cars that are lowered. Another way you might not have ever heard of is with something called the Venom Series Wheel Web.
I found these one day while looking for new ratchet straps for my trailer. To say they piqued my interest would be an understatement. According to Kevin Sauerwald of SecureMyCargo.com, “the guys at Team Venom Racing happened to stop by my vendor spot one day at the Carlisle All-Truck show in Pennsylvania. They said they needed me to come up with a quick and easy option to tie down their race trucks. The request was, it’s got to be strong and easy to get on and off.”
Kevin and the guys at Venom Racing worked on the design for nearly a year. Finally, when they were satisfied with the design, they went to market. The Venom Wheel Net encompasses the wheel and tire and secures the vehicle to your trailer with a tie-down ratchet. SecureMyCargo.com is proud to say that all its products are made in the USA, not just assembled. The webbing is made in the USA, and everything is sewn and assembled here.
Each complete kit gets you four tire webs and four ratchets. To keep those webs and ratchets together for easy usage, you will also get a duffle bag to hold it all. According to Kevin, the Medium size will fit most standard-size (small) tires. The Large or standard is meant for 28 through 37-inch tires and they also have an XL that goes up to a 44-inch tire.
Upon first glance, my initial question to Kevin was about lateral support. His reply? “Yes, I do get the question about lateral support. I had an engineer do some math calculations for me and with this design, if you have let’s say 100 pounds pulling forward and then 100 pounds pulling rearward there is 140 pounds of lateral tension keeping it centered. The Venom Racing guys have been using this for about four years and they indicated that they never had a truck move 1 inch in any direction using this system.
