I’ve been trying to find ways to attach a wing tie-down point ever since I forgot to build them in as I was building the plane. I was browsing the Rans web site one day and I found a nice little solution.
Here is where the tie-down needs to go. I couldn’t find a good way to pull the bolts out of the top of the fitting to attach a tie-down. So here is Rans’ solution:
It is a loop of tough nylon strapping that goes around the top of the strut. The nuts help keep it from slipping down the strut and tension from the tie-down chain or rope cinches it in tight. When not in use the loop is removed and the intersection fairing is slid back up in place.
