Demco SS460 Tow Dolly

Recently purchased a new Demco tow Dolly which performs well with the following exception. After tightning the wheel straps and driving a few miles they become lose to the point that the winch moves to the outside of the tires pulling the strap with it. After repositioning the winch and tightening the strap and driving awhile the same problem occurs but to a lessor extent.

The wheels are locked and straight prior to tightening the straps.

I would check the straps that holds your car . Its normal to have the straps loosen a little after a few miles , but not to that extent . Maybe there's a tear somewhere in the strap , OR your not tightening the car down enough . I look at my tires and make sure they bulge aliitle when tightening . I always put more air in the front tires before ( 40 lbs ) to stop alot of flexing in the tire .
I hope this will help you solve your problems .
Happy travels , Tommy Tucer .

Tow dolly tightening

I forgot to mention to make sure your front tires are evenly against the front stops before you try to tighten the straps . Demco makes one of the best tow dollies so try those suggestions . T.T.
