The Top Tether anchorages cannot secure a load. If you secure a load with the Top Tether anchorages, the Top Tether anchorages could be pulled out during braking, abrupt changes in direction or in the event of an accident. The load could slip, tip over or be flung around and thereby hit vehicle occupants. There is a risk of injury.

Х Distribute the load on the cargo tie down rings evenly.

Х Do not use elastic straps or nets to secure a load, as these are only intended as an anti-slip protection for light loads.
