These steel backing plates for the 2' E-track in your enclosed trailer provide more support than just securing it with using wood or metal screws. Bolt each plate to your E-track on the opposite side of the wall or under the floor.


Features:

  • Backing plates provide extra support for your 2' E-track (sold separately)
    • Perfect for use in an enclosed trailer with a thin wall or floor
  • Multiple pre-drilled holes make plates compatible with horizontal or vertical E-tracks
  • Galvanized steel construction is strong and corrosion resistant
  • Simple, bolt-on installation with included hardware
    • Attach each plate to E-track, evenly spaced, on the opposite side of the wall or under the floor
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 2 backing plates
  • Dimensions (each): 6" long x 6" wide x 1/8" thick
  • 4-Bolt mounting pattern: 4-1/2" x 4"
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Note: The included hardware lets you mount your E-track on surfaces up to 2" thick.


Product Dimensions

These backing plates provide more support for your E-track (sold separately) than only using wood or metal screws. Simply put, they allow the pulling force to be distributed over a greater area. This prevents your mower, ATV, or other heavy object from pulling your E-track away from its mounting surface and tearing up your trailer's wall or floor. They're perfect for trailers with thin walls or floors.


Pre-Drilled Holes

Product Dimensions

Pre-drilled holes accommodate the standard 4-bolt mounting pattern found on most horizontal or vertical E-tracks. There are also holes to accommodate D-rings, Snap-Locs, and odd-shaped tie-down anchors.


Simple, Bolt-On Installation

Installed

To install, drill pilot holes in your mounting surface as close as you can to each end of your E-track and directly in the middle so that the plates will be evenly spaced. Place your E-track where you're mounting it and insert the included bolts. On the opposite side of your wall or floor, place the plates over the bolts and secure them using the included washers and nylon lock nuts.

Review from a similar etrailer Backing Plate in Accessories and Parts


This is the only way to go with a "thin" plywood floor! You could buy another e-track rail and chop it into backing plates, but then you don't have the hardware to go with it which gets pretty pricy.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Accessories and Parts

  • Using E-Track Backing Plate to Mount E-Track on the Floor of a cargo Van
    Basically, the backing plate for the E-track, # e96RR, is like a giant washer. You will likely need several of them since it is 6-1/2 inches long by 6 inches wide. The fasteners you use will go through the E-Track, through the floor of the van, through the backing plate, and you would put the nuts for the fasteners on at the bottoms of the backing plates. So you are basically sandwiching the van floor between the E-track and the backing plate.

  • Can E-Track be Installed in Car Hauler for Multiple Car Widths
    You can install the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148 in any manner you like, so for a car hauler that has cars of different widths you can place E-track side-by-side, as you can see one of our customers did in the accompanying photo. 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...

  • How Does Smart Fortwo Get Secured to Aluma Trailer Using E-Tracks
    I attached the picture I believe you were referencing for securing a Smart car too a Aluma trailer using E-track. The straps used in the picture are the Erickson Adjustable Wheel Net with E-Track Fittings # 77314 which basically just snap into place into the slots of the E-tracks and then the ratchet tightens the straps to the tires. I also attached a second picture that shows a closer angle for you to check out to see more. We also have wheel chocks that fit into e-track as well that would...

  • E-Track Parts to Secure Rock Crawler on Deck Trailer
    It is best to have E-Tracks like # E19148 installed in the direction of travel for securing a vehicle. The previous owner of the trailer may have had a specialized cargo application that required left-to-right positioning of the tracks. That's fine for tool boxes and equipment but for a 2-1/2-ton vehicle with a high center of gravity it is safer to have the wheel nets like # 77314 installed without twists or lateral tension. It's no big deal to make the minor modification needed. You...

  • Hardware For Installing E-Tracks on Marine Plywood Trailer Deck
    Because of their versatility there isn't a specific type of wood screw that's recommended when installing the Erickson E-Tracks like # E19148. The screw length will depend on the thickness of your trailer deck but for thinner marine plywood I do recommend adding Backing Plates # e96RR to reinforce the connection. I have attached a sample install video as well that you might also find helpful.

  • Do I Need To Use Backing Plates For Installation of E-Track in Ford Transit Cargo Van
    If you cannot secure the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148 to the frame of the vehicle, you will need to use a backing plate like the etrailer Backing Plate # e96RR to help provide a more secure connection to the wall of your Ford Transit cargo van. Since the wall of the van is likely aluminum and these tracks and backing plate are made of steel, you will either need to paint both mating surfaces, as well as the hardware that you're using to secure them to the floor. You can also use...

  • Longest E-Track Length Recommendation
    The longest section of E-track that we offer is the part # E19148 that is 5 feet long. Since the track would need to be securely attached to the trailer it is installed there would be no incentive that we can see for welding the tracks together. Securing 5 foot sections at the ends and the center using brackets like # e96RR is ideal.

  • How do E-Tracks Typically Install to a Trailer Wall
    When attaching e-tracks like the part # E19148 typically people run the bolts through the track, then through the wall or floor they are attaching the track to, through the backing plate like part # e96RR, and then finally the nuts get threaded onto the bolts. Check out the install video I attached to see how this is done usually. If you wanted to route the bolts the opposite way that would be possible as well.

  • Load Rating of Buyers E-Track Products
    I spoke with Buyers about the Buyers Products Horizontal E-Track part # 3371903052 and they can't really give me a load rating because it really depends on the way the E-track is mounted. If they are attached to a wall then attaching them to a wall stud is your strongest option with either wood screws or self tapping screws depending on the application. You may consider adding a back plate like part # e96RR if you are using the tracks on an application without structural supports. 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 # e96RR. 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.

  • 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 # e96RR.

  • Can Erickson Mini E-Track Plate be Used as Tie-Down for UTV or ATV
    Yes, you can use the Erickson Mini E-Track Plate # EM09134 with E-Track ratchet straps such as the CargoSmart Ratchet Straps for E-Track - 1" x 6' - 500 lbs # 3481717 or Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap with Roller Idler and Ratchet - 2" x 12' - 1,100 lbs # EM58523, though you would not be able to use wheel chocks.

    Absolutely, you can mount E track just about anywhere it will fit. We had a customer send in a picture of his E track mounted sided to side on his trailer so the pressure is across all the decking instead of just one board. You can check out the pictured I linked.

  • Will the E-Track Backing Plate # e96RR fit with Erickson Horizontal E-Track Part E19148 or E19135
    The Erickson horizontal E-tracks # E19148 and E19135 will both have 2-inch mounting hole spacing and will work with the # e96RR backing plate. 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 from running...

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.

  • Can E-Track Be Installed Over Rubber Non-Ski Covering On Wood Floor in Trailer
    You should really attach E-Track directly to the wood floor of the trailer by trimming the rubber covering in the area you want to mount the track. Also I recommend using several E-track backing plates, # e96RR, under the wood floor so that the force applied to the wood floor is spread out over a wider area. this will help prevent the E-track from pulling out when a load is pulling on it.

  • Installation Recommendations For E-Track Horizontal Track System In Trailer With 2x6 Floor
    The Erickson Horizontal E-Track, part # E19148 has 1/4 inch diameter mounting holes spaced 2 inches apart. The screws you use should be at least long enough to go 3/4 inch into the wood you are mounting the track to. The more screws you use the more secure the track will be. Usually, wood screws are used and should have at lease 3/4 inches of material to fasten to, so it sounds like you have that covered. The best way to mount the track is to use the E-Track backing plate, part...

But if you only need part of the trailer equipped then I would put one track on each side of the bike.

    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.

Long story short, as long as some of the fasteners are connecting to the trailer frame or cross-members or a backer plate,...
