Tilt-Tie, the Highline for your Horse Trailer
Tilt-Tie Install Review by H. Kent Sundling
Spring Loaded Tilt-Tie Reviewed by Mr. Trailer
Spring loaded Tilt-Tie swings out from your trailer wall. It’s an attractive functional trailer accessory that attaches with two bolts and swings back out of the way when you are done. Seven ft. off the ground like a highline, but you don’t have to look for trees to tie to. Your horse can move around, lay down, graze and not be nervous about being tied short to a trailer.
The teenager in my horses comes out when they are tied close to my trailers. They like to paw the tire valve stems and fender clearance lights. Quick release snaps in the included leads make it easier to free your horse if a problem occurs. Good for longer tie ups.
The Tilt-Tie base and swivel which attaches to your trailer wall post is aluminum. The spring housing and rod are stainless steel. So there is no painting, no maintenance and it’s corrosion free. Quick pins go through the base to lock the lead rod in place away from the trailer or against the trailer for traveling.
See the RFD TV episode on Equestrian Nation about Tilt-Tie.
Spring loaded arm, the spring is hidden in the flex post. You won’t get pinched by it.
There are hooks, lead ropes and halters available that allow horses to pull back when you are teaching horses to yield to pressure. If your horses handle slack in a lead rope well or a high tie, they should do well using Tilt-Tie.
