The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSA), DOT CFR 393.100 to 393.136 states specifically that all items of cargo must be secured to the trailer.

Sturdy-Lite prohibits the use of the cab rack to meet 393.114.

Cab racks are not to be installed on a trailer, only the truck and cannot meet 393.116. Sturdy-Lite prohibits the use of cab racks to meet 393.116.
