Polycaster Mounting

    I have a two year old Fisher Polycaster that I have secured to my truck with ratchet straps. When empty, it tries to slide around some. I dont seem to have the room to strap it secure, the straps go from my tie downs to the handles, which is pretty much straight up and down, very little side angle, so the spreader has room to slide back. Other than bolting to the bed, I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas to keep this thing from sliding around. Thanks

    have the straps "cross" from front to back (not sure it will help with the sideways motion but its worth a shot... or maybe put a rubber truck mat underneath it to help with the sliding along with putting a 4x4 up by the front of the box to keep the vbox away from the bed (I do this in my trucks just to keep the sand and salt from contacting my beds)
