What is a D-ring?
A D-ring is a piece of hardware, generally shaped like the letter D, that is secured to a D-ring strap or directly to the surface of a truck or trailer for use in securing cargo. Aluminum tie down rings or aluminum D-rings are preferred for high chloride environments for better corrosion resistance than steel D-rings. Truck D-rings for larger and heavier cargo should be constructed of steel for strength and durability – these D-rings may also go by the name ring anchor as the D-ring is mounted inside a bracket that can be screwed directly to the trailer surface or recessed into the surface to stay out of the way when not in use.
D-rings and straps are a very flexible way to outfit a trailer to secure a variety of cargo. Stainless steel D-rings with clips can be used in situations where the same cargo will be secured in the same position again and again to increase loading efficiency.
When outfitting a D-ring trailer you may want to consider all possible tie down points and determine if it is most cost effective to buy bulk D-rings to meet all your cargo needs.
