M1101 Trailer: One Strap or Two?

Maintainers, before you order that water can strap for your trailer, look at the water can holder. Depending on the type of holder mounted onto your trailer, you’ll need either a single strap or dual straps.

Item 8 in Fig 16 of TM 9-2330-392-13&P (Dec 12) shows the single strap style that you can get with NSN 5340-00-968-4060.

The dual strap style of water can holder is mounted to the trailer with three (3) bolts. One (1) of those three (3) bolts is mounted in the center of the water can holder, which means that a single strap can’t be used because the bolt is in the way.

The dual water can straps are available through the manufacturer, Schutt Industries, Inc. You’ll need to order the male strap with PN 12449600, and the female strap with PN 12449594, because there are no NSNs assigned.

You may want to order a single bar slide through the manufacturer too. Use PN MS51940-5S to get the bar slide, or you can reuse the one from your old strap, if it’s serviceable.

For more info or to order the bar slide or straps, contact Schutt Industries, Inc. at:
