Question about securing crates

Post by Zammster » Fri May 06, 2022 2:12 pm

Sorry, I'm sure this has been answered already but there's a ton of posts and I'm having a hard time finding guidance.

I'll likely be doing my first rescue this weekend. I have a Cessna 172 and a wire crate, but I have no idea how to properly secure this crate or any crate to the back seat or in the cargo area.

Does anyone have a good resource that illustrates the proper way to do so? It would be great if I could get an idea of what kind of equipment I will need to do the securing as well as the proper places to do the securing.

Even if it's just a link to a post on this forum, that would be helpful.

Thanks so much.
