  • The Mighty Tite tie down system relies on steel chocks that capture the front tires, and a beefy, steel chain at the rear. Unlike fabric straps that will fray, stretch, and usually work themselves loose, once you have the Mighty Tite set, your ATV or Side x Side is locked down to the trailer until you’re ready to unload it. About the only way to lose a machine with the Mighty Tite in place is to roll the trailer, and at that point you’ve probably wrecked the trailer and your truck too. One of the biggest advantages of the Mighty Tite system is you can lock it down by inserting a padlock through a set of holes at the rear lever bar. That’s a great feature for overnight trips when your machine may have to spend a few nights unprotected on the trailer. It’s a level of security a fabric strap tie-down can’t match. Since the Mighty Tite is a mechanical system it must be bolted to the trailer first though.

    Bolting the front wheel chocks to the trailer would definitely help secure your machine, but it would also reduce usable trailer space. The QWIK Release people found a unique way around that problem when developing the Mighty Tite by allowing the front wheel chocks to be removed, freeing up the space for other loads. Both front wheel chocks slide into a mounting plate that first bolts to the trailer deck. There are a couple things you need to do before bolting it down however.

    With the front mounting plates installed it’s time to bolt down the rear locking plate. The rear plate on the Mighty Tite load security system uses a lever, heavy duty chain, and a slotted hitch insert that slides into your machines receiver hitch. To secure your machine you slip the chain into the correct slot in the receiver insert and push down on the locking lever. This places tension on the chain which in turn pulls down on your machine suspension, insuring constant tension. It’s quick, easy, and very secure. With the front wheels held in place by the wheel chocks and the rear end clamped down by the locking lever and chain, your machine isn’t going anywhere until the trailer moves.

    Re: Mighty Tite Trailer Hauling System

    Yeah, I asked them about tire size and they said it fits anything. So I need to follow up on that.

    We've quoted them out and they are expensive to produce. Is a $249.99 price point closer to what it should be?

    Look really nice just a little too expensive.
     

    Whether you’re off for a day on the dunes or trails, heading to the deer camp for a week, or hauling your ATV or Side x Side to the construction site, nothing would ruin your day faster than having your machine unload itself on the highway. A typical utility ATV weighs a little over 600 pounds, a Polaris Ranger 800XP tips the scale at 1,300 and some machines easily exceed 1,500. Bargain basement straps aren’t going to get the job done. Your machine has cost you a pretty penny – consider the Mighty Tite your trailer protection system.

In the end, as it goes for many things with products related to children, there’s a lot of information and emotions out there, but the only clear authority out there (the ) has not reviewed Mighty Tite to set the matter straight. This product has been offered by many reputable retailers, including child specialty stores, for years, and it’s made by a company that makes reputable seats. Again, I’ve found it keeps my child car seat firmly in place. It might help you, too.
