Drivers of flatbed trucks not only have the important task of transporting expensive loads, but also must secure the load into place on the back of their truck. The process of doing so is often strenuous and requires the driver to scale the load in order to properly place the straps in such a way that they do not damage the load yet secure it in place.

An inventor from Jenks, Okla., has invented ABBENATER, a device for the precision placement of straps and edge protectors on flatbed trailer loads. "I am a truck driver and wanted to invent something that would make my job easier and safer," said the inventor. "This invention would eliminate the need to climb onto the load."
ABBENATOR simplifies the process of preparing a flatbed trailer load for shipment, saving considerable time and effort for professional truck drivers by not having to climb around on trailers.

This invention also eliminates the risk of falling to the ground when securing straps and edge guards into position, helping to prevent serious injuries, extended time off work, insurance claims, and pain related to falls. It is lightweight and easy to use and transport.

The original design was submitted to the Oklahoma City office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
