The reason for the poor review is because the holes on this backing plate did not precisely match the etrailer band E-Track. Apparently, after communicating with folks at etrailer, this backing place is made to match the Erickson brand. This was not mentioned on the description when I purchased it. Essentially two of the holes had to be "modified". Doing so with hand tools was not the easiest nor prettiest of jobs; but in the end it worked. It just added hours to otherwise a straight forward process. trailer did offer to refund the cost but I used them anyway. I still believe you need a backing plate to install the E-track; you may just have to make it yourself. Also, I feel it is easier to drill fresh holes than to modified holes that are already drilled... Just sayin!

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.

The base plates are a necessary to insure adequate support for the e-track system to transport large motorcycles. You must obtain mounting hardware since it isn't provided. I used 1/4 x 2" stainless Phillips head bolts secured with washer/lock washer, hex nut and thread locker. The plate is more than adequate in size and thickness to ensure the e-track will remain secure.

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.

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.

This is a great product and high quality. The only issue that I had was the holes didn't exactly match up on the EM09160 Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks. On each plate I had to drill two holes . If it wasn't for that I would have given 5 stars

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.

Thanks for the follow up. I’m very satisfied with the backing plates. They installed easily and I feel they really secured my tracks to my trailer. I’m happy I got them.

Heavy gauge steel backing plate. Very cost effective option to making your own. I will be installing this in all aluminum enclosed trailer. This will add support to e track installed on floor. I haul high end sports cars and feel assured the car will remain in place by utilizing these backing plates.


Comments
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.

I was more than impressed with the service I had received - not only was everything processed ahead of schedule but shipped ahead of schedule and I was upgraded to expedited shipping at no cost to me! Package was received 3days earlier due to all of their attention to service - not to mention well packaged and in great condition. The product was a perfect answer to mounting my Etrack to the underside of my wood floor and provide a secure sandwich to mount my motorcycle wheel chock and tie downs - now I don't have to worry.

still working great - I used it to attach my track to the floor. I would still recommend this product to anyone. Thank you for your follow up!

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.

  • Backing Plate for Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM09160
    You could use the E-track backing plate part # BPEZ for when you install the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit w/ Ratchet Straps and Wheel Chocks # EM09160. These were designed for use with E-Tracks so the dimensions match perfectly.

    Depending on what your plan on bolting the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit and Wheel Chocks # EM09160 to you may not need the backing plate # BPEZ. I have a picture attached where it's bolted to a truck bed with no plate. However, if you want to use the Brophy E-track backing plate # BPEZ with the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit and Wheel Chocks # EM09160, they will work with each other but may need some adjustments.

  • Backing Plate Recommendation for Wood Floor E-Track Trailer Installation
    To use E-track on your aluminum framed, wood-floored trailer I would recommend using the backing plate part # BPEZ. This will mount underneath the wood and then would give the E-track like part # E19148 (5 foot section) a secure attachment.
    view full answer...
  • What is the longest Section of E-Track Available
    The longest section of E-Track that we carry is a 5-foot long section, # E19148. To get to 10 feet you would also need a 2 on each side.
    view full answer...
  • Recommended Number of Backing Plates for 10 Foot Sections of E-Track
    For 10 feet of track I recommend using at least 4 of the E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ. Put one at each end and two evenly spaced to the the middle. If you will be securing larger loads, then you will want to use more. The flooring already present in your trailer will make a big difference as to how many you may choose to use as well. You can use up to three for each 2 foot section if desired.
    view full answer...
  • How Many Backing Plates Should be Used to Secure an 8 Foot Length of E-Track
    It really depends. At the very least I would say that you would need 3 backing plates # BPEZ per E-Track section; one at each end and one in the middle. Five spaced evenly apart would probably be better. When attaching things to the E-track I recommend securing them at the locations along the track that are attached to the backing plates because that is where it would be the strongest. As far as how many fasteners to use Erickson says to use 2 per linear foot of track.

  • Recommended Backing Plates For 8 Foot Sections Of E-Track On Pressure Treated Floor
    I recommend using 2 to 3 E-Track Backing Plate - Zinc Plated Steel - 6-1/2" Long x 6" Wide, # BPEZ for a 5 foot section of Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148. Depending on the thickness of your pressure treated floor would determine if I'd use 2 or 3. If it is a sturdy floor, you can use 2 with one on each end. If you want maximum support, I'd use 3 and put one in the center of the track as well.

  • Can E-Tracks Attach to Trailer's Mesh Floor
    Yes, you could use E-Track on a trailer with a steel mesh with the proper backing plate under the mesh and/or by securing it to the support beams on the underside of the trailer. You can use backing plate # BPEZ and carriage bolt hardware kit part # SLHCBDS-P and you'd be set.

  • Backing Plates to Use With E-Track System on V-Nose Enclosed Trailer
    You're on the right track- the Brophy E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ is what you'll want to use as a support plate under your E-track system like the Brophy # ET05 or Erickson # E19135. You'll want to use a backing plate at each end of the track and in the middle for the maximum support. Additionally, if the underside of your trailer is aluminum, you'll want to use a coat of paint or some other sort of insulating material to prevent galvanic corrosion between the two metals.

  • 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.

  • Securing Various Vehicles in Car Hauler Using E-Track
    Since the vehicles will be of varying widths and weights, the best way to go would be to run the two parallel lengths so they's be a few inches inboard from the wheels of the narrowest vehicle and use a ratchet/axle strap type setup to secure them. For each vehicle, you'd need 4 e-track anchors, part # 59147 and 4 of the Car Tie-Down kits, part # 08504-05. The kit includes ratchet and axle straps and will work if the individual weight of each vehicle is less than 8000 lbs (which it...

    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...

  • Can E-Tracks Be Installed On a Trailer With Expanded Metal Floor
    In order to install a set of e-tracks like the Erickson Horizontal E-Track part # E19148 on a trailer with expanded metal floor you would need to install several backing plates like the E-Track Backing Plate part # BPEZ under the floor for support.

  • Hole Spacing of Brophy # BPEZ E-Track Backing Plate
    The spacing isn't a perfect match, but it could be made to work very easily. There will be a 1/8 inch difference between the hole spacing of the # BPEZ backer plate and the spacing of your Kinedyn track system. It would be pretty easy to use a rotary tool or a file to slot the holes a little bit so they'd work.

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...

  • What Does Working Load Limit Mean for E-Track
    Good question and the 2,000 lb working load limit (WLL) of the Erickson Horizontal E-Track such as the 5 foot # E19148 is the safe limit for the weight of the cargo the track is helping secure. To simplify, it is the cargo capacity that the track can safely handle so you do not want to exceed it. However, the 2,000 lb limit is per track, so that means if you put down two tracks horizontally, your WLL would go up to 4,000 lbs. This track cannot actually be welded on, it needs to be secured...
