Video Transcript for Erickson Horizontal E-Track Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson horizontal E-track track system. This is available in many different lengths to fit a wide variety of applications.Here you can see our E-track in action. As we're driving around, you can see all of our items are staying in place very, very well. You're not going to have to worry about shifting, things going from one side to the other and causing issues or making a mess when you get to your final destination.Now the E-track system is easily the most popular cargo control system that we have available. Essentially you can mount this just about anywhere. We're in an enclosed trailer today.

We've got two rows of it mounted here on the side of the trailer. Two on the bottom, two on the other side. This is going to give this customer hundreds of attachment points for just about any type of accessory, straps, different hooks and stuff that'll work out great. You can see even here on the front of the Ranger, right around the tires, they've got chocks. So you know you're getting your Ranger in the right spot every time or any other vehicle for that matter.And not only is this going to work out well for enclosed trailers like this.

But we see people that mount these on the wall in their garage, on open utility trailers. Maybe in the bed of your truck, if you haul a little four wheeler around or something like that. So it can really give you a very good way to get everything nice and secure and not be limited on the attachment points you have and have to kind of finagle things to get it strapped in properly. In this case, you'll be able to have an attachment point exactly where you need it all the time.Here's one example, you can see there's just a nice clip in ring that's available. This can click in any slot on the E-track and those are going to be on two inch centers from one to the other.

You can see that's going to come out. We can move it anywhere along the line we want. So if we're trying to pack a larger item, we can spread it out wider. A narrower item, we can bring them in closer together. You'll see how that's going to work.

You just push down on that tab, the sides going to go in first. Rotate the bottom in and just allow it to come down, that's going to click back in, gives us a good secure attachment point that then we can get all of our gear kind of secured with.Here you can see another good example. We've got our E-chock in right here. That clips again right into the E-track. Then we're able to bring one of the E-track specific straps around. Get that connected right around all four tires. This thing is not going to go anywhere. It's extremely secure and extremely stable. Now if you already have a bunch of straps with hooks on the end, it's not really a big deal. They've got an accessory that's going to work out great for that as well.Here you can see the D hook style strap. And again just very quick and easy to get that connected or removed. It can be slid anywhere along the track that you want. And you can use your already existing straps to hold everything in place.Here's another good example of one of our E-track's straps in use. You can see we've got it connected to the wall there around our tool box. Whether you're using it as a work type situation or playing on the weekends, you'll need tools if you break something. You can see that box is super secure. It's not going anywhere. Not going to have to worry about your box turning over or your tools being misplaced when you get where you're going.We also have a lot of tool holders, whether that's a horizontal type like what we have here. You can see use two of those, you'll be able to stack tubing, boards, whatever you might want kept up to the side or the vertical type like we've got here. You can see these come in various sizes. There's just a growing number of accessories available for this E-track to make your cargo control a very easy and manageable situation.We're also going to have almost like a Joyce hanger available. This makes an ideal solution for building shelves or beds inside of your enclosed trailer. To either give you a lot more storage options or give you someplace to sleep once your get your vehicle out there, get everything unloaded. You just turn this right into a camper.Now the E-track itself is completely zinc coated. So even if you are going to have it exposed to the elements, you're not going to have to worry about that rust and corrosion so much. And then like some of the other track systems available, you can see how many attachment points there are. Even on our enclosed trailer here where we have to hit studs specifically to get it attached. See generally they're going to line up and give you a good secure point.Now the hardware's not included to secure it and that's understandable. There are many different ways to secure this and a lot of different materials to secure it too. So you'll have to provide your own hardware to get that installed.Now something else I really like about the E-track is its got a little bit of a flex to it. So you can see here is our trailer steps back, it kind of dovetails down a little bit. So it's got a little bit of a slope, able to contour exactly to that, still give us good attachment points from the front to back of our trailer.Now to go over a few dimensions for our E-track. From the bottom to the top here, the total width is going to be about five and an eighth of an inch. And then from the surface you mount it to, to the top of the track is going to be about 7/16 of an inch. Now where the track ends, you do have little caps or little wedges that are made to fit in place there. So you don't just have a step up. It's going to give you something that'll actually roll up and over. Really prevents you from getting your foot hung on it or anything like that.Now when it comes time to mount the track, our mounting holes are a quarter inch in diameter. And they're going to be located every two inches. So as you can see, even on our trailer here it's had a few irregularities in the studs. We're able to get a bolt into each one of them and get our track nice and secure.Now it has a 6,000 pound break strength and a 2,000 pound safe working load limit. You want to stay in that 2,000 pound safe working load limit. You don't want to press that break strength. But one thing you really need to keep in mind is, if you only attach this, let's say you only get one of the five foot sections and you attach it with four screws. That's not really going to give you much strength. You want to get plenty of fasteners in there to help out and make sure we can get right up to that working load limit that we expect.Now Erickson offers their horizontal E-track in a lot of different lengths. They've got a four inch section, if you just need a small connection point in a few spots on your trailer. Then they also have a few different lengths in the feet. You get two feet, four feet, five feet, or eight feet sections. So you can really get exactly what you need for you application.Then another thing to keep in mind. This can be cut in a few situations in our trailer here. We have an eight foot section, we had to maybe cut it down to maybe seven or seven and a half. But using the cut off saw, kind of an abrasive wheel saw. It cuts pretty easily and you can really get it customized for your situation.Now let's take a second to compare the E-track with other track systems. Here we have the O-track, this is the wall mount style. Basically you'll have rings and a few other accessories available for this track. It's not as easy to use. So we're going to pull this in, put the circle in the circle. I'm going to slide it over about midway. We're going to see that it's going to click in. That kind of locks our ring in place. There are some accessories available for the O-track, not nearly as many as what you're going to find with the E-track.I also like the fact that the E-track, see how it mounts on two sides here. So if we are pulling downward a little bit, we've got security. With the O-track it's going to mount right in the middle at a single point. So that's going to give us less resistance to twisting as we secure our items. And while the shorter pieces like this will come with hardware, for the floor track, which we'll show you in just a minute. You need to find this particular type of screw with the pan head to it, to where it'll sit down and flush in. Whereas when we secure the E-track, we can do that with just about any type of hardware that we want that's a quarter inch.Here you can see on the O-track for the floor, it does have a taper on each side. That's going to make it smooth and for the wall or for the floor, we'll have the cap that goes on the end. So that's very similar in to the style that we have with the E-track. But something I noticed, take a look at your mounting holes here. We've got one here, one here, one here. So that gives your about a 12 inch space between each of them. Where again with the E-track, we've got tons of areas to secure it, many different holes that are available on two inch centers. So the E-track's going to be a much more secure system that what you're going to get with the O-track. Looking over our customer reviews with the O-track, they like it. It works out, but anytime you move into those heavier duty applications, you'll see the E-track really shines.Now while this isn't a track system, this is another tie down method that you're going to see very often in trailers. This is a fixed point tie down, so we can't move this thing around if we decide we want to go from one to two ATVs or something. We really don't have that option. There's a hole drilled in the floor and that allows it to sit down and in. That's supposed to give your a much more flush kind of a style. But with the head of the bolt sticking up here, at each of our mounting locations and the thickness of the flange. It's just about at the same level as what we get with the E-track.So when we look between the two systems that we have here, while we'll get a higher capacity in a lot of cases with this style. With our E-track, we get tons more versatility.Now as we've shown you, the E-track system can mount either on the side of the trailer or on the floor. We're going to show you here just a little bit of how the side would go in. Basically, we've measured from the top of the trailer down to the top of where we want our track to go. One thing you will notice, right here on the end there's going to be a little step up there. In that situation, see we've got just a little cap that goes over and smooths that out. That'll prevent your hand getting caught on it if you walk by or anything like that. So we're just going to kind of match that up with what we've done on the top. That gives us our location.Another thing to consider, this is a steel track, it is zinc coated and this is an aluminum trailer. If you're going to be putting steel on aluminum, good idea to use an isolator. This is going to allow us to get this in place. We won't have to worry about the corrosion that's often caused with dissimilar metals. So we get that put in place. Now the hardware you used to install it, that's going to be up to you. With us going into the aluminum, we're going to be using self tapping screws. If you're going into a wooden trailer or something like that, of course you'll probably want to use something a little bit different.So we'll get this corner started. We're going to go to our other end, going to make sure that it's level where we want it. Then we'll just work our way down putting our isolators in along the way. You'll notice here at the end of this section of the track, our hole isn't over our stud. What we're going to do is just drill a pilot hole. It'll allow our fastener to go through. Let's get our holes drilled top and bottom here. And again you want to make sure you're drilling a pilot hole that's appropriate for the fastener you're using.Now for our end cap, just going to place that on. It's designed to just match up perfectly the top and bottom there. Use our fasteners and get that in place. All right that pretty much kind of sums up your wall mount situation and how you'll get it mounted on the wall. So we're going to finish this one up. Then we'll turn our attention to the floor.Now you can see we've marked here on our floor where we want the center of our track to run. We've also marked where we want the end of our track to be. Mark the center of our track. And now we're just going to get that all kind of lined up there. Again, using steel on aluminum. We're going to use an insulator there or an isolator. All right, that looks good there. And then to keep it square, we'll just measure over to the side of the trailer and back out. We want to keep that consistent the full length of our track. Once we've confirmed that it's running square with our trailer, we'll just get it secured down.And with our track secured down, we'll just remove the excess isolator that we've got here. Then we can put our caps on. Now for capping off the end of our floor plate here, our floor track. Just want to use the same procedure we did for the walls. Place it in, get your screws started. Now as we're coming in or going out, we won't have to worry about kind of trip hazard.That's going to complete our look at the Erickson horizontal E-track system.

Great product and fast delivery. I got a little carried away with the number of proprietary ratchet straps, although they are extremely well made. Buy a ton of wood beam sockets and rings so you can use other lashing straps or bungee cords in some situations. I made my 24 foot enclosed car trailer into a moving van with E-Track at 2 foot and 4 foot heights on all of the walls. Thought about rails on the floor but figured I'd be blowing dirt out of them all the time. If you think your friends are annoying by borrowing your truck, you'd better keep your trailer a secret... 555532

If you look closely on the first photo you can see a yellow strap peeking out right behind the tool box, and at the tail end of the trailer. Andrew also mentioned that he used some heavy duty 6K E-Track D-Rings part # 59147

Probably overkill, but I put a 5-ft section on each side of our Aluma TK1 trike trailer. I also used 2 sections on the underside as a backing plate, since they come predrilled. The underside tracks will also come in handy if I ever have to carry a ton of plywood. I am pretty sure we will never overload the 6-k load limit on these babies. etrailer online purchasing was simple, they shipped quickly, and the box was well-packed. 42620

The Erickson E-Track system has to be hands down the best tie-down solution. Use this in conjunction with the Basket Straps and you have a Worry Free Solution. We use it to tie-down our UTV/SXS and we can be assured that the machine will not move and the straps are as tight when we arrive as they were when we left. The confidence in this system makes the trip experience even better knowing you don't have to keep checking. We will put this on any trailer we purchase. You won't be disappointed in this. Be sure to use the E-Track Tie Down Rings!!! 527789

These folks are terrific! This is my third order with them and I have been very impressed.

The website and service are second to none. I had a question about which product to use and within a couple of hours etrailer had an expert reply, creating a web page with detailed information and links to suggested solutions. Also a photo of the guy who wrote it and his name and email address in case I needed more help. I went ahead and ordered and well within the promised time the box arrived. To me this is the standard by which all other online retailers should be compared. Whenever I need anything they sell, etrailer is the place I will return for more purchases. I couldn't be happier with the company. 475473

Love my little trailer! I am a 67-year-old woman who Just drove it 8,000 miles on the Splash Trash Tour to Florida and it performed great. It was easy to pull and easy to see around. Backing up takes a little learning since the leverage is so small. Smaller trailers are harder to back up than the larger ones I was used to, but a few tries in a parking lot and you'll get it! 453432

My E-Track retrofit required some careful sourcing. I have a 16' trailer with a side door, so I had to have enough pieces to cover the essential walls. eTrailer.com had everything I needed to do a professional installation on my Hammond Organ delivery trailer! This 5-foot chunk went end-to-end with the 8-foot chunk on the long wall. I used one 8-foot chunk on the other wall up to the side door. So far I haven't needed anything on the small space between the door and the front. I didn't have to cut any metal to accomplish the installation. Nice to have a good selection! 450989

Ask the Experts about this Erickson E Track

Do you have a question about this E Track?


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Are E-Track Parts From Different Manufacturers Interchangeable
  • We have found that E-track parts from different manufacturers are indeed interchangeable and compatible with each other. Just as an example the Snap-Loc Loc-Ring # SLARI from Snap-Loc that you were looking at will work perfectly with either the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148 or the Brophy # ET05. I have attached a link that will take you directly to our complete selection of E-track parts that you can also look through.

  • Can I Mount Multiple Pieces Of E-track To Make An 18 Feet Strip
  • If you need 18 feet of E-track I recommend using 2 pieces of 8 feet Horizontal E-track part # E19135 and 1 piece of 2 feet E-Track part # EM59150. 8 feet is the longest Horizontal E-Track available. The E-track pieces are not designed to be mounted properly while overlapped with one another. I recommend cutting one of the tracks down with a saw or cutting wheel if the piece is too long to mount onto the wall stud. A lot of customers also attach thicker plywood to the wall studs where...

  • If you want the table to span the width of your van then the best option would be to use a few of the CargoSmart Board Holders part # 348892 and then build a table on these using 2x4's and plywood. If you only want the table to go on one side then the best option would be to use the CargoSmart Folding Track Brackets part # 3481744 and then build your table out of plywood. These will both work just fine with the Erickson Horizontal E-Track part # E19148 so long as you are able to find a...

  • Does the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 Have to be In-Line with Direction of Travel
  • You can use the Erickson ATV E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM09160 to help secure your ATV but you really need something securing your ATV in the direction of travel. You could put some Horizontal E-Track like part # E19148 in-line with the direction of travel and do a kind of criss-cross pattern over your ATV with straps like part # EM59136 to help secure it, but Erickson does not recommend securing the load only using a straps that are not with the direction of travel. As long as your...

  • 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 or 8 foot # E19135 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,...

  • Using Erickson E-Track Components to Secure Jeep Wrangler to Steel Deck Trailer
  • Using the 5 Foot Long E-Tracks # E19148 along with the E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM58523-09162 you referenced is a great way to secure your Jeep Wrangler to the steel deck trailer. I did reach out to my contact at Erickson just to get her thoughts on the setup and she said as long as you go through that steel deck to the cross members with the E-Track mounting hardware (which it sounds like you plan on doing) you won't have any issues with regards to safety. This will provide you with an extremely...

  • Recommendations for Securing a 900 Pound Harley-Davidson Motorcycle to a Trailer
  • There are probably some sort of fancy anchors that you could get from a hardware store but I have a better, more secure and safe option for you. You can install some E-track such as # E19148 using numerous fasteners which will better distribute the weight. Then you would just need some D-rings for the tie downs, # E59143, and straps to secure to the handle bars # 06303 (to avoid any scuffs to the chrome). Then it is just a matter of using ratchet straps such as # EM05710 is you need some.

  • Will the E-Track Backing Plate Part BPEZ 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 Brophy E-track backing plate # BPEZ. 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...

  • Can E-Track Sections be Cut with a Saw
  • As long as your saw is capable of cutting steel there's no reason you couldn't cut a section like the part # E19148 that you referenced.

  • Where Should Install Hardware for E-Track Cargo Management be Sourced
  • Determining the mounting locations of E-Track like part # E19148 will depend on the construction of your trailer and personal preference. You will need to determine what would work the best based how your trailer is setup and also consider what you are planning on securing. To secure the track to the plywood, you can use screws, or rivets. Using 1/2 inch screws would be a good length with 3/4 inch plywood. You will want to attach screws at least every other mounting hole. Your local...

  • What Are the Available Lengths of Erickson E-Track Trailer Cargo Control Tracks
  • The standard lengths of Erickson E-track that we offer include the 8-foot # E19135 as well as 5, 4 and 2-foot lengths. We also offer small single-, double- and 4-slot tracks for tight spaces. All can be seen on the link provided. The E-tracks are galvanized 12-gauge steel so to cut one to your required size you'll need to have a suitable saw blade that can cut steel. You'll also want to de-burr the cut edge to keep it safe for working.

  • Corrosion Concerns When Installing E-Track On Aluminum Trailer
  • I did some research online to find out what metals when in contact with each other promote corrosion. Surprisingly, zinc coated steel, like the E-Track Cargo Control track, part # E19148, and aluminum like your trailer would not promote corrosion nearly as fast as most metals when attached to one another per the nobility of metals chart I found online. As with any metals, the environment plays a major role in the corrosion between metals. If the materials are subjected to a lot of salt...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • What Is The Load Limit Of The Tie Down E-Track Rails
  • I do have etrack options available for you in a variety of lengths however, none of which are made of aluminum. The materials that our etracks are made of is a zinc plated steel. The load limit for the etrack systems will vary depending on the model however, the majority of their systems are rated for 2,000 lbs such as the Erickson Horizontal E-Track part # E19148.

  • 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...

  • What Type of Hardware Should be Used to Attach E-Track to Plywood Trailer Walls
  • For plywood walls you would need wood screws to secure the E-track # E19148 to the walls. That is if you attach the track to only the wooden walls. If you secure any of the E-track to the metal support frames then you would need machine screws for the metal type used on the trailer. The mounting holes in the E-tracks are 1/4 inch in diameter so using 3/16 inch hardware of the appropriate length would be the way to go.

  • E-Track and Motorcycle Wheel Chock Recommendation for Securing Motorcycle to Trailer
  • That sounds like a great plan, the E-Track part # E19148 will provide a great tie-down point for securing the motorcycles. Since this part number is for a 5 foot section you would be better off getting an 8 foot section like part # E19135, and then trimming it down to the right size. For tie-down rings you would want the # 59131 and then for a wheel chock I would recommend the # MT70075 because of how well it secures motorcycle and how easy it is to use. Check out the review video I...

  • Recommended Installation Method for Erickson E-Track in Enclosed Trailer
  • Thanks for the photo of your trailer interior. E-Tracks like # E19148 need to be mounted with at least 2 fasteners per linear foot on each side to a structural surface on the trailer in order for them to meet their specs. I see from your photo that you have a track spanning the structural ribs inside the trailer. It does not appear this installation has enough fasteners and that may well be the issue. I can recommend a couple of options. One is to bolt the E-Tracks all the way through...

  • 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.

  • Adjustable Tie Downs for Different Size ATVs on a Trailer
  • Since you need some adjustability I recommend getting 2 sections of E-Track, # E19148, and then using 2 Erickson Adjustable Wheel Nets, # 77314 for one. The E-track is 5 feet long so you have all sorts of mounting options and the straps has E-Track fittings. I have linked videos on these parts for you.
