Manufactured home tie down.

Recommended Posts

...........that is pretty common in older installs, as there has always been an industry lag in field installation efforts. That said, this particular tie-down serves the purpose in name only - the owner can say "yes" to his insurance carrier when asked if the unit is tied down. The reality is that it's completely ineffective and should be called-out as such. The home could be retrofitted with real tie-downs in several ways - but probably never will be [:-paperba.......Greg

I see a lot of these, some have cheezy alum turnbuckles like you would use on a clothes line

Agree with Greg, and they need to be installed at 45 degree angle also.

For my report (here in WA): Tiedowns installed likely met the standards when they were installed, They do not meet todays seismic tiedown standards. A structural engineer needs to evaluate and offer remedies if you need a foundation certification.
