how do you suggest anchoring e-track to a 3/4 inch plywood trailer floor
asked by: jim
It depends on how much load you will be applying to the track, what you are holding with it, and how the trailer frame is made. If you can get to the trailer frame, use nuts and bolts to attach through the floor and the metal trailer frame. If you are using it to secure an ATV or 4-wheeler, mount the track where the ATV tires will rest on it and the weight of the ATV will hold the track down. This way you would only need a handful of attachment points just to keep the track from sliding.
If you cannot access the trailer frame or only want to attach to the plywood floor, you could use 1/2 inch wood screws and put one in every other mount hole. Start installing screws in the center of the track and work your way to the ends to keep the track laying flush and not bending or buckling as you run screws down tight.
