Manufactured home Tie Down help 'LOOK'

dunkinidahoMarch 10, 2011

The tie down straps on my 2000 Jacobsen have slack in them. I believe these are to be tight otherwise the home may lift or shift under high winds. How can these straps be tightened. There is no adjustment now. Would they need to be replaced entirely or is there a conversion to an adjustable system?

Is there a bolt at the top of the ground anchor? The bolts are often slotted with the strap inserted in the slot. Tightening the bolt winds the strap around the bolt tighter.

I've seen those but mine doesn't have them. The strap is buried in cement at the ground. The end connected to the beam is folded back on itself and has two wraps around the strap and are crimped.
