Create a portable, adjustable hold down system for your airplane!
This custom joining plate lets you fasten together two sections of Gladiator® Gear Track in a 'Tee.' With a pair of Strut or Wing Tube Supports on the 'cross' section and a Tail Support on the longer, 'leg' section you can secure an airplane in vehicles quickly, securely, and best of all, portably. It's a great solution for SUVs and pickup trucks and it works equally well as a setup/run up stand.
Gladiator® Gear Track is available at most home improvement stores in 4' sections. With the optional Gear Track Hardware Kit you can attach three Gear Jacks to the Gladiator® Gear Track. The Gear Track Hardware Kit even includes tie down points for a bungee to secure the airplane's tail.
