Securing a Polaris UTV in a 14' garage

I have a Fuzion 398 TH 5th wheel and would like some advice on securing a large UTV properly.

It is impossible (for me at least) to use the installed D-rings due to the size of the UTV. I can strap down the rear but not the front.

I would prefer something that will leave the floor relatively flat.

I have thought of adding more D-rings but I am not sure what lies underneath the floor and if I will hit something or secure the D-rings adequately by just using wood screws into the floor. Would an E-track or L-track be a better option? Can they just be screwed to the floor or do they need to be through bolted with a backing plate

Thanks,

Don

I cross strap my Outlander Max as it is to long to properly strap in. Front of unit to back rings and vice versa. I also have a ring on the middle of the front that I tie to the hitch as 1 extra.

The E track gives you lots of options and is pretty flat, you can buy end caps so the ends are not sharp. I used 3/8x2 bolts fender washers lock washers and nuts because my raptor only has 5/8 osb and I am anal, seeing my Harley inside the 2nd bath or on it's side is not very appealing >)

Pingle makes a removable wheel chock for tires up to 11.25" wide Pingel Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chocks , you'll have to bolt a couple of small brackets to the floor though. I cover mine up with a carpet when the bikes aren't loaded and they're not too obvious.

Did you ever consider a load lock? A ratcheting cargo bar that goes between the walls ... uscargocontrol.com $19.95

Thanks for the great Ideas.

I need to measure my tires to see if the Pingel Chocks will work.

I bit concerned a load bar will be adequate but I did see ones that affix to E-Track (as used on 18 wheelers) and they are a great option too without having to attach anything to the floor.
