Yeah, I'm figured you mentioned the half of the hasp that has the loop and using that as an anchor point. Not sure how I would use the other part of the hasp - do you have any URLs of hasps being used as you're thinking?
Ah! This is where we think alike! I purposefully attached the EMT to the frame using the sliding bolts so that the frame could be slid along the pipe closer or farther away depending on the load - all I have to do is drill holes in the pipe where I want it locked to the frame. I tried to figure out what a hasp is - is it the loop part? If so that makes sense to put tie down points on the frame!
Good question - something I've been mulling over for a while because I wanted versatility and not built a deck that could only work in one way. I've decided to search for the orange plastic mesh fencing you see at construction sites, to use as the deck. It's strong and offers many tie-down points. On the corners I'll be vertically mounting 1/2 EMT to keep larger items in (E.g. a bundled tarp full of leaves and branches), but with the added ability to slide them down so they touch the ground - to support the trailer when it's not hooked up to the bike (Kind of like the jacks on the corner of campers which sit in the back of a pickup truck).
