(3)Coils. Whenever a motor carrier transports one or more coils of metal which, individually or as a combination banded together, weigh 5,000 pounds or more, the coils shall be secured in the following manner:
(i)Coils with eyes vertical: one or more coils which are grouped and loaded side by side in a transverse or longitudinal row must be secured by
(a)A tiedown assembly against the front of the coil or row of coils, restraining against forward motion;
(b)A tiedown assembly against the rear of the coil or row of coils, restraining against rearward motion; and
(c)A tiedown assembly over the top of each coil or transverse row of coils, restraining against vertical motion. The same tiedown assembly shall not be used to comply with more than one of the requirements of paragraph (c)(3)(i)(a), (b), or (c) of this section.
(ii)Coils with eyes crosswise: Each coil or transverse row of coils loaded side by side and having approximately the same outside diameters must be secured by
(a)A tiedown assembly through the eye of each coil, restricting against forward motion and making an angle of less than 45° with the horizontal when viewed from the side of the vehicle;
(b)A tiedown assembly through the eye of each coil, restricting against rearward motion and making an angle of less than 45° with the horizontal when viewed from the side of the vehicle; and
(c) Timbers, having a nominal cross section of 4 x 4 inches or more and a length which is at least 75 percent of the width of the coil or row of coils, tightly placed against both the front and rear sides of the coil or row of coils and restrained to prevent movement of the coil or coils in the forward and rearward directions.
(d) If coils are loaded to contact each other in the longitudinal direction and relative motion between coils, and between coils and the vehicle, is prevented by tiedown assemblies and
(1)Only the foremost and rearmost coils must be secured with timbers; and
(2)A single tiedown assembly, restricting against forward motion, may be used to secure any coil except the rearmost one, which must be restrained against rearward motion.
(iii) Coils with eyes lengthwise: A coil or transverse row of coils having approximately equal outside diameters and loaded side by side or a longitudinal row of coils having approximately equal outside diameters and loaded end to end must be secured
(a)The coil or coils must be restrained against side-by-side and fore-and-aft movement by
(1)One or more tiedown assemblies over the top of each coil or transverse row; or
(2)Two or more tiedown assemblies through the eye of each coil or longitudinal row; or
(3)One or more tiedown assemblies, crossing from one side ofthe vehicle to the other, through the eye of each coil or longi-
