Abstract : An improved storable tie-down device. The tie-down device has a center bar with a pair of spared, parallel V-shaped arms extending from the center bar. A mounting arm extends outward from the V-shaped legs. A housing located below the surface of a frame holds the mounting arms so that the tie-down device can be rotated from a retracted storage position to an active attachment position. (Author)
