Installed X straps to my double triton trailer.
So after picking up a new single Triton X i started looking for the same straps for my new double trailer. I found them in stock at a walmart. Their only $30 a pair and i bolted them to my double Triton LTWCII. I had to go buy longer bolts for the rear frame bar.
They are so much easier to use than old ratchets.
These are made by ATTWOOD. They are the same exact ones as on the new X models.
Extra bolts needed are 5/16 x 4" all stainless of course plus 2 washers and 2 nuts.
5/16 metal drill bit that is longer than 4" to go all the way thru the boxed frame.

How are you sure they are the exact ones Triton uses? I plan to do this to my trailer as well.

I would be worried about having the strap applying pressure on the sponson blade.
The hulls seem to be hanging way beyond the rear end of the bunks. Perhaps the bunks should be adjusted rearwards (swapped end for end) or the hulls shifted forwards (move the winch towers).

Darn, that's a good looking garage !!
I just bought that double trailer.
-do you have a wider side picture and rear picture so I can get ideas for setup?

Earlier K447 suggested flipping your bunks and I agree.
By reversing the bunks they will sit 8" farther back and not change the load.
-the pics show the far set flipped (for RXT) and the near set forward (for GPR)
ps. I'm steeling your tie-down idea. Thank You.

My .02. Ratchet straps are no bueno They will ultimately lead to cracked hulls around the mounting points. The whole trailer flexes and needs to. Cranking the ski down with a ratchet strap will not help. Decent cinch straps are all you need. Also. The bunks don't need to support the very end of the hull. That's good advice for boats where the weight is all the way in the stern. On a ski the weight is where the engine and gas tank is. Support that first and foremost.
