I am planning on buying some 2x12 preasure treated boards and bolt them to 2x4 stakes and sit them in place on my flat bed trailer..

I have found that unless you secure the side boards to the front cross board and tail gate board that they are some what loose..

I would like to put a fastener on each corner that I can fasten easy and snug up tight..

Got any good ideas of a fastener that would do this for me.

Take a peice of 2in flat stock and bend it then drill some holes
thx for the thought ,I like the thought of bending something to work myself ..

I found this idea that I like very much and will see if I can fabricate something like them myself..If not I will just buy 4 sets of these and install them ..

With these fasteners I wouldn't have to unbolt anything when I wanted to take any of the ends or sides off to load the trailer..

What do you think of this set up?

Heres what I came up with for sideboards

Trailer and Artic CAt


corner Brackets that allow me to take the end off or just any one of them /or all




the next photos shows how the planks to load the Artic Cat or my lawn mower fasten to the trailer



I bolted a angle iron to the rear of the trailer and then drilled holes to able me to stick the bolts down thru the angle iron from the loading planks to secure the planks while loading and un-loading


I also cut out half rounds where the tie downs are welded to the trailer so I could access them with a straight up shot rather than over the top of the sideboards


Now I need to stain it ,,what color I am not sure but was thinking a shade of brown ? what do you think..Artic Cat is green ,truck is Red ,,lawn mower is Orange wife is white..LOL

Oil them with a deck sealant ....paint will just chip away could burn alittle with torch first

I oiled the deck already wtih thomptsom deck sealer and was planning on staining the sideboards and sealing them also..


but,, you have a good idea just torch the wood here and there and the sand it off some and seal it .. Thats a real good look and goes good with Green ,Red, black trailer fenders and the white wife..LOL thx
