Just looking for thoughts / discussion on best way to secure full drums of honey on a trailer when transporting over the road.

I've always centered drums over axles and screwed a 2x6 down to the wooden deck in front and rear of the drums to keep them from sliding forward incase of a panic stop, strapped around then over the tops of the drums. Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on best practices for securing a small load of full drums to keep them put rather than screwing down a board to the deck... Wondering if there's a better way as I can't imagine that over time a bunch of screw holes in my wood deck in the center of the trailer is a good thing. :)

Thanks!

you might put a layer or two of emty drums on first then run a strap up high to pull them into the emty drums. To keep the strap from riding down put 2x4 with a notch at the top to hold the strap up. Then strap as normal.

Put some cardboard down on the deck first. It will help to keep them from sliding. Looks like you got things figured out.
