who's figured out a quick and effective way to tie down?

With all the talent on this board, somebody has to have figured this out. I need to get my Teryx on and off the flatbed quite a few times and pretty quickly. What is the best and fastest method and where are you guys hooking to and THANKS for ANY replies.
PS: keep in mind I have snow tracks on most of the time if that makes a difference on tie-down methods. Thanks my friends!

This method will cost a little bit but mount a front and rear winch and use the those as a tie down strap.

Doesn't take me too long.... I double wrap a strap around each end of the front bumper (stock bumper) and then I hook both ends of the strap to the front corners of my trailer.

on the back end, I run my straps through the bar that runs across the bottom of the box that the exhaust mounts to. I hook both ends of the strap to the back corner of the trailer.

I'm heading out on a poker derby on Saturday. I'll try and get some photos so I can post.

I've actually been thinking of posting a thread like this too. Thanks Eh!

nnadenoff- that's genius- I would've never thought of that. I even have a winch in my garage that I never mounted on the Teryx. Gotta make sure they wouldn't get stolen if I bought another one and mounted them on my trailer. Sometimes I'm a long way away from my trailer.
jfilion- yes, if you get a chance to post some pics, they would be awesome and THANKS for the replies!

Using a whinch as a tie down can ruin the winch. They arent made for that.

It doesn't happen lots, but I have seen a tight winch cable holding a quad on a trailer loosen before.

A fast way to do it is hook one onto the front a pillar with a soft tie and on the middle b pillar same way and just pull forward with middle strap and back with front strap it is super fast and easy and all you have to do is put one on each side and its solid.

The A pillar is the front pillar where a winsheild would mount on on the roll cage, the B pillar is back in the middle of the car by where the seat belts strap onto the cage.
