The Standard Vehicle Stabilization Kit (VSK) has a maximum load of up to 40,000 lbs (18.144 kg) with a 4:1 safety factor. This kit can cover everything from small vehicles to large commercial/municipal vehicles. With its two struts and up to 3 ft (91 cm) of extensions and high load capacity, the Standard VSK can create an A-Frame stabilization triangle to limit load shift during rescues on nearly any sized vehicle. 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. 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 Standard VSK is an exceptional starting point for any rescue team looking to improve it’s stabilization options in vehicle rescues.
