At my first (and only) track day I saw everyone using these things... It attaches to your swing arm so when you drive into your trailer you can let it drag and latch onto your trailer floor for easy storage / tie down. What is that thing called and where can I get one?

I have no idea what to search! Please help!

Not "everybody" uses them. :) But this is what you saw:

They make other trailer restraint systems that are cheaper, but Pit Bull is the best from my personal experience.

They have to be for how much they charge for simple stuff!

In my experience they're completely worth it!

How else do you restrain the bike in addition to this? Just two straps on the tree and call it a day?

Personally, I just rely on the trailer restraint, nothing else. It's worked fine like that all year.

In all honestly, for the convenience it provides and the quality you get (will last you a long long time), the cost isn't that much. Most people just look at a $300 investment and don't realize all of the benefits it provides. The time and headaches mine has saved me, I consider it to be money well spent.

I use these Condor Chocks in my trailer:

Those are also fairly expensive and you can get cheaper ones but these are very good and the bike will sit in them without being held up, very stable chock. I then use a strap at the end of each bar and one around the rear wheel.
