With its 4 struts and up to 3 ft (91 cm) of extensions for each strut, the Highway VSK can create 2 A-Frame stabilization triangles to limit load shift during rescues on nearly any sized vehicle. With 2 strut sizes and 3 sizes of extensions, the Highway VSK can reach up to 8ft to find purchase points to stabilize tall vehicles.
With 4 specialty ratchet straps and the 12″ (30 cm) hinged base with anchor ring, you can attach two straps to each base, giving a second stability triangle connecting the strut base to the load. 4 J-Hooks are provided to ensure you can find purchase points.
The Multi-Base can attach to the vehicle through the sharp contact points on either side, cradle a vehicle purchase point in its V-shaped design, or even attach through a chain sling. The Highway VSK is a highly versatile kit for rescue teams looking for a system to handle multi-vehicle rescue scenarios or larger commercial vehicles.
