Is that Fla law or have the FMCSR laws changed? There is, or was, a list of approved tie downs in the FMCSR.

List of approved tie downs per FMCSR unless excluded for particular items such as boulders or crushed cars.

Chain; Synthetic Webbing; Wire Rope; Manila Rope; Polypropylene Fiber Rope; Polyester Fiber Rope; Nylon Rope; Double Braided Nylon Rope; and Steel Strapping.

The one I can not understand is rope. The rules explicitly say no knots can be used. How the heck do you use a piece of rope without tying a knot in it.

I asked the exact same question some years back at a DOT school run by 3 members of the advisory board. What I was told was that the knot could not be in the running length of the rope. IOW, knots to tighten the rope- okay, knots piecing the rope together- not okay. I think that was in the interpretations some time ago, not sure what edition of the FMCSR.
