Video Transcript for Brophy Zinc Plated E-Track Backing Plate Installation

Today we are going to be taking a look at the E-Trak Backing Plate. Part number BPEZ. As you can see, it definitely gives us more surface area under here, instead of just at each bolt location, you have got a whole plate that 4 different bolts go through here, to tie down the E-Trak. These plates are 6 inches by 6 1/2 inches and they are an eighth of an inch thick. They are zinc plated steel so that they are nice and strong, but they will also resist rust and corrosion. Depending on your application, it does have some additional holes as well, depending on how you need to mount it. These, with that extra surface area they provide, especially under things like a plywood floor here, it is going to give you that extra strength for when that 6,000 pound capacity of the E-Trak is being put into place. If it is just pulling up on single bolts that are small in diameter, they are more likely to pull through than a plate that is 6 inches by 6 1/2 inches. From the top of the E-Trak you see the heads of the bolt's here, and that is the only thing that you can see that goes through to that plate underneath.

It helps maintain a nice clean look for your E-Trak. Having those plates underneath also makes sure that that E-Trak feels nice and secure. On this 2 foot section of E-Trak right here, I have already got either end attached to the frame rail here and here. Now, take our backing plate. I am going to put two of them in, we will put one where these holes, these two outer holes line up with these two holes, on either side. Then the other one, I am going to put right here, to where these holes line up with these holes here.

Now that I know which holes I am going to use, I am going to take a drill bit and drill these out. The holes in the E-Trak itself are 1/4 inch, but the holes in the backing plate are 5/16 of an inch. Throughout this trailer we have used 5/16 inch bolts. In order to do that, what I am going to do is take my 5/16 drill bit and I am going to drill these holes out just a little bit bigger. In the process, I will also be able to drill out the hole through the plywood. Now that I have got those drilled out, I am just going to clean this us and then I will be able to put my bolts through.

Once I am all done pushing these through, we can head underneath and get ready to mount our plates up. Now that we are underneath, we can see all 8 of our bolts poking through here. I am just going to takes some of these little wood chips that we're chipping away from drilling out our holes. I will just pull them off and out of the way. With that area cleaned up, I can get ready to start putting our plates up into place. Where we have got these 4 holes in a line, those are going to be straight down the center here.

We will get these lined up. I am just going to put a lock washer and nut on one of these to start, just to help hold it up there. I have got these two coming through here, the other ones are just ever so slightly off. Now lets check the fitment on our other one here. Put my lock washer and nut on this one, it is sticking all the way through. I am just going to snug these up by hand to help hold the plate in place when we try and push those other bolts back down through. Just take a hammer and tap down. If it doesn't want to go down all the way, you can also take your 1/2 inch or 13mm socket and just kind of run it down. It should grip just enough on the sides of the bracket, the hole of the bracket underneath to pull it down through. We can get the rest of our lock washers and nuts started. Once we have got them all started, we can go around and tighten them up. These are again going to be 1/2 inch or 13mm socket on the underside here. When you are tightening these up, they don't need to be super tight, but you want to make sure that they are run down all the way, and nice and secure. If they do want to spin on you when you are getting them almost all the way tight, you can have somebody else hold a wrench on the top side at the head of the bolt while you tighten it up the rest of the way. That is going to complete our look at the E-Trak backing plate. Part number BPEZ.

Great product! We use the trailer to haul motorcycles on our trips. It's also been in several parades. Company is easy to work with and follows up on your satisfcation. 446542

I'm very happy with the products. I had purchased from etrailer in the past and was very satisfied then, which is the reason I returned when I needed tie down equipment. I was not disappointed. The service, products and advice was great. I installed the e-tract without any difficulty. I'm also happy to say that it secured my antique fire hose cart in a manner that protected it and kept it from moving while traveling. Thanks to all. When I need anything else you can be sure I will come back. 270356

Installed the e-track on my flatbed trailer yesterday using these plates as intended. CAUTION ....... these plates DO NOT line up with the vertical e-track despite the description stating "most horizontal and vertical" e-track. It wasn't a huge issue for me only because my friend has a fully equipped workshop and garage which included a drill press. We were able to bolt them together in 3 separate stacks and drill them to accommodate the holes in the track. If you do not have that luxury then it will be quite a job, depending on how many plates you are using. In my case it was 18. Once drilled they installed easily using a 1/4" impact wrench which expedited the installation quite nicely. This is a 2 person job without a doubt. It would be very difficult for 1 person to do this on their own. My setup is used for hauling 2 motorcycles, 4 wheeler, Kubota RTV, a 15,000 watt generator, and other miscellaneous equipment (not all at the same time). I am satisfied with the product to include the e-track, as well as the customer service provided by etrailer.com. I have ordered numerous items from them over the last several years and have always had a good experience. I am attaching several photos for review. Thank you etrailer.com. 591238

Good item as far as construction goes, check spacing before ordering though... side to side spacing is 4-5/8" center to center as shown on the site in one place and 4-1/2" CtoC further down the page. The spacing shown for the e-track itself is 4-1/2" CtoC. The spacing on the e-track I have on hand (previous purchase elsewhere) is only 4-3/8" CtoC . Of course I got the 4-5/8" CtoC pieces so ended up having to re-drill to make them work. 129340

Ordered my last four backing plates, these will run the entire length of the track except where I bolted it to the frame rails. Good heavy duty and should keep my hot rod safe and secure. 580853



- BPEZ
by:

These plates are very heavy duty. Depending on what you are using them for, you may need to drill different holes. I had to on some of them due to where the metal cross members were under my trailer. These are very seriously strong metal plates and after a year they are holding up perfectly. 561680

Excellent customer service. Received expedited shipping services at no extra cost. I have E-track from two different sources, the backing plate fits only one. Before you order I suggest that you measure your E-track to make sure that the mounting holes will align with the holes on the backing plate. I have a drill press so I drilled additional or enlarged existing holes as required. 538537

I bought backing plates for eTracks on a rebuild of my snowmobile trailer. First, I didn’t realize they existed until I was directed to them on the website. A helpful how-to video gave me some great tips on installation. I ordered on a Thursday and they arrived on Saturday, well packaged and exactly as described. I am a new customer but etrailer will be first on my list for future trailer needs. 456700

thanks for following up on this. Its funny, as I was unable to use these plates on mye-track install. The bolt pattern is not the same as the e-track installed in my trailer so basically these plates are useless. I still have them and would gladly return them.

  • Mounting Suggestion For E-track To Aluminum Utility Trailer
  • For your Aluma 6810 HBT trailer, I recommend the Erickson Horizontal E-Track - Zinc Coated Steel - 2,000 lbs - 8' Long - Qty 1 # E19135 along with the E-Track Backing Plate - Zinc Plated Steel - 6-1/2" Long x 6" Wide # BPEZ. This will save you the expense of the dual track and will allow you the flexibility of plates between the braces or around them. This track also comes in 5 foot sections # E19148, 4 foot # EM19147, and 2 foot # EM59150. I recommend using the E-Track Plastic End...

It also gives flexibility in how the vehicle will attach to the floor since the different slots can easily be selected. It will require you to install E-tracks on the floor of you trailer though like the # EM19147 for 4 foot long sections. For a backing plate to install on the bottom of the trailer we have the...

Either the Erickson E-Track Tie-Off w/ D-Ring - 2" Wide x 8-1/4" Long - 1,200 lbs # E59143 or the Erickson E-Track Tie Down Ring - 2,000 lbs # 59147 will work fine. You will not have anywhere near the weight capacity on the rings so it really can depend on your personal preference. I'd go with the # 59147 so there is no twist at the connection. For...

  • Backing Plate for Use with Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit EM09160
  • Erickson does offer a zinc-plated steel backing plate for use with their E-Track products like their ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160. Use part # BPEZ. You can see this item's hole dimensions and spacing in the linked photo. Since your trailer deck is aluminum and this plate is steel you will want to isolate them to prevent galvanic corrosion between the two different metals. A coating of paint or other insulating material will do it.

  • Using E-Track and Accessories in a 5 x10 Enclosed Trailer to Carry a Harley or an ATV
  • In order to secure either a motorcycle or ATV I recommend 2 sections of E-Track # E19135 so that you can have one on either side of the motorcycle. This will be the most stable set up for the bike. The ATV really only needs to use one of the tracks to be secured using a wheel net with E-Track fittings, # 77314. For the motorcycle I recommend using at least 2 of D-ring # 59131, assist straps # 06303, and some ratchet straps such as # 34414. I have included some links to videos on these...

There is a similar option for wider tires, # MTMWC-01R, which will take a tire up to 7-1/8 inches wide.

This E-track is only 5-1/8" wide so you can install numerous different tracks to meet as many widths as possible. For additional support I do recommend using the E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ during your install. This would be the best option and then...

I went to our warehouse to measure the backing plate with the E-tracks and they will fit just fine. The width center eye to eye is 4-1/2 inches and the length center eye to eye is 4-inches. The holes in the backing plate are only 1/16 of an inch larger than 4-1/2 inches, and the minimal difference is not enough to prevent a screw...

Depending on the thickness of your pressure treated floor would determine if I'd use 3 or 4. If it is a sturdy floor, you can use 3 with one on each end and one in the center. If you want maximum support, I'd use 4 and put them every 2 feet.

With this track you can then use the wheel chocks # EM09162-2 or the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks - 1,500 lbs # EM09160. I've attached the link to all the E-track tie-down options as they are extensive.

  • Are Backing Plates Required To Install Erickson E-Track System
  • Backing plates, like the Brophy E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ, are always a good idea. Using bolts and backing plates will provide a more secure installation of the Erickson E-Track. You will want to use 4 bolts per backing plate. If you do decide to use screws, I would go with longer 1 inch screws. You will want to ensure that the screws go deep enough into the wood floor of the trailer. I have attached a review and installation video of the # E19148 E-Track system for you to have...

  • Can Etrack Be Used with Aluminum Trailer
  • E-Track like # E19148 is zinc-coated steel and since the trailer is aluminum you would want to paint the bottom of the E-Track. Otherwise the dissimilar metals can cause corrosion to start. Be sure to also consider the fasteners used. Zinc-coated fasteners could be used but you will want to spray some paint in the areas there the fasteners are under the trailer. Best option would probably be to use a backing plate like part # BPEZ to secure the tracks as this is steel and steel hardware...

  • Vertical Etrack Mounting on a Thin Stud Recommendations
  • Installing the Etracks vertically in the way you described could work depending on how much weight the etracks would be supporting. I think the 2x6 idea would also work, but since you are concerned that would be too much weight you could split the difference and go with a lighter board like a piece of thicker plywood. You could attach the plywood to the stud and then the etrack to the plywood. Another option would be to get the E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ.

  • Spacing the Tracks When Installing E-Track to Metal Floor of Car Hauler
  • If you are planning on using an E-track wheel strap like the part # EM58523 (which would be your best and easiest option for securing the vehicle), you would want to space the E-track sections the exact same width as the tires on your vehicle. Right down the middle like in the picture I attached would be ideal. The ratings for the tracks is the amount of weight they can secure. So part # EM19147 can secure up to 6,000 lbs.

  • The Snap-Loc E-Track Tie-Down Strap, part # SLLS28RER will work great with the E-Track systems like part # E19148 and part # EM09144. You will want to make sure you have the E-track attached to the floor really secure. To make sure it is secured properly you may want to use the E-Track Backing plate, part # BPEZ. This attaches on the opposite side of the mounting surface. We also offer plastic endcap, part # ET8730 for the E-Track to protect tires or anything that travels over...

  • Attaching E-Track to Wooden Trailer Floor
  • Ideally, you'll want some of the hardware attaching the e-track to the trailer floor to also secure to the cross members as well as to the planks that make up the trailer floor. If that's not possible, I'd recommend using a backer plate like # BPEZ every two feet or so and through bolting the e-track all the way through the trailer floor and through the backer plate. Long story short, as long as some of the fasteners are connecting to the trailer frame or cross-members or a backer plate,...

  • Should E-Track Be Attached to Trailer Frame for Installation
  • When installing an E-track, such as # E19148, it is always best to attach the track to the trailer's main structural components, such as the frame, when possible. The frame will provide the best support for the system. The E-Track Baking Plate # BPEZ works well to help reinforce the E-track when the frame is not located in the area where you need to install your E-track. The installation process for the E-track can vary on a trailer to trailer and cargo to cargo basis. To be sure your...

  • How to Mount E-Track Cargo Control System E19148 To Inside Wall of Enclosed Trailer
  • The Erickson E-Track Trailer Cargo Control tracks, part # E19148, are intended to mount to the structural components of a trailer. These locations provide the most secure mounting to ensure your cargo remains stable within your trailer during transport. Without a secure mounting location you will not be able to use the full 6000 pound working load limit provided by the tracks. The attached video may be helpful; it demonstrates installation of the E-Track system in an enclosed trailer...

  • Tips for Installing E-Track on a Trailer with Tube Aluminum Frame
  • On an 8 foot long section of E-track # E19135 and 2 screws every 16 inches that is a total of 12 screws in the aluminum frame. This most likely will not get you to the 6,000 pound capacity of the E-track. I recommend bolting through the aluminum frame so that the fasteners are anchored. This is harder to do since you need access to both sides of the vertical supports of the frame. Another option is to use several backing plates, # BPEZ, which will disperse the weight over a larger...

  • Does Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 Attach To Trailer Wood Floor Directly
  • We installed the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 by attaching them directly to the wood floor of a trailer. Check out the install video I attached for more info on that. I'd recommend using a backing plate like the part # BPEZ to add a bit more support if you were feeling cautious.

  • Installing E-Track on an Aluminum Trailer
  • If it were my trailer I would fasten the E-Track to the support beams under the trailer, either the side to side one or front to back ones, by going all the way through those support beams. E-Track like # E19148 is zinc-coated steel and since the trailer is aluminum you would want to paint the bottom of the E-Track. Otherwise the dissimilar metals can cause corrosion to start. Be sure to also consider the fasteners used. Zinc-coated fasteners could be used but you will want to spray...
