  • D-Ring
  • Trailer Tie-Down Anchors
  • Truck Tie-Down Anchors
  • Surface Mount - Bolt-On
  • 1600 lbs
  • Brophy

Zinc-plated, corrosion resistant steel D-ring creates an attachment point for tie-down straps and bungee cords wherever you need cargo control. The recessed design allows you to roll cargo over the ring. Includes backing plate and mounting hardware.


Features:

  • Tie-down anchor provides a solid point to secure your cargo with straps or bungee cords
  • D-ring 90-degrees so you can attach straps from multiple angles
  • Recessed design allows cargo to slide over the ring without interference
  • Included backing plate provides greater support than mounting the anchor directly to wood
  • Zinc-plated steel construction resists corrosion and retains its strength through repeated use
  • Simple, bolt-on installation with mounting hardware
    • Includes 4 Nuts, 4 lock washers, and (4) 3/8" x 2-1/4" bolts


Specs:

  • Maximum load (break strength): 5,000 lbs
  • Working load limit: 1,600 lbs
  • Anchor:
    • Bezel dimensions: 4-1/2" wide x 4-7/8" tall
    • Ring diameter: 1/2"
    • Inner ring diameter: 1-3/8"
    • Recess dimensions: 3-3/8" wide x 3/4" deep
    • Bolt hole dimensions: 3/8" wide x 3/8" tall
    • Bolt size: 3/8" diameter x 2-1/4" long
  • Backing plate dimensions: 6-1/2" wide x 6-1/2" tall
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Note: Tie-down anchors must be chosen according to their safe working load limit (WLL). The weight of the secured cargo must not exceed the combined WLL of the anchors being used. For example, if you are using anchors with a WLL of 100 lbs each to tie down a load weighing 400 lbs, then you need at least 4 anchors to safely secure that load. It is recommended that you always use anchors in pairs.

Very heavy duty, super easy to install. Used on my trailer for quad and lawn tractor, much better quality than you can get in local box stores. Very happy with them. 728875

I have had 4 of these on my utility trailer for almost a year and they work great. I have tied down everything from a 4 wheeler to a small utility tractor with a loader on it and they hold great. The backing plate makes all the difference when mounting in wood. I have also carried several loads of compost and there is no corrosion on the tie down ring or the housing. 109231

I ordered 6 recessed D-rings Monday evening about 8 Pm. They arrived Wednesday morning 10. I live in Northern Wisconsin, That's awesome timing and its just standard shipping with UPS. The installation was good, just make sure you watch the video- It helps! It was easier after the first one - I used a 3 1/4 hole saw, went down to 3 3/4 in. deep. Then chisel it out to the 3/4 mark. Helpful Hint ---- I used about 1 1/2 hole saw (take the drill out of course) then you use the hole saw in a circular motion to clean up the 3 1/4 hole down to 3/4 deep. The 4 carriage bolt holes make sure these are straight. But you can exceed the 3/8 drill size to give you some wiggle room. Which you will need to get the D-Ring straight. I will use etrailer.com again and again! Very very excellent product and service! Neil P. Wisconsin 10-15-2018 574703

  • Does the Tie-Down Ring or Backing Plate have to Face a Certain Way in Tie-Down with Plate # RR5K
    You explained it perfectly fine! For Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor with Backing Plate # RR5K it really does not matter which way you have it positioned. The important thing is that the backing plate is used so that it can better disperse the force applied to the ring to a larger area on the trailer. In the video I have linked showing an example installation we put the hinge end towards the back of the trailer so the load would actually be forward. The longer side of the backing plate...

  • Can the Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate be Used on an Aluminum Trailer Floor
    The backing plate that comes with the tie down, # RR5K, is strong enough for its 5,000 pound capacity so no additional support is needed for it. I recommend placing the tie downs so that the are over the frame of the trailer where the most support is. If they are bolted to the frame, that would be the strongest point.

  • Recommended Tie-Downs for an Open Car Trailer with Diamond Plate Flooring
    The best option we have for you to add additional tie-downs to your car hauler would be to use Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchors part # RR5K. You could weld the top plate to the diamond plate flooring or you could drill a few holes and use the included backing plate and mounting hardware to secure the tie-down. This tie-down has a maximum load limit of 5,000 lbs per ring. They are zinc plated to resist rust/corrosion and come with a 1-year warranty. I have attached a review video on the...

  • How To Install The Brophy Trailer D-Ring Tie Down, # RR5K, On A Wood Trailer Floor
    You can attach the Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate, # RR5K, most anywhere on a trailer. The recessed D-Ring is designed to be recessed in a wood surface (floor, wall) and using the steel backing plate will make a stronger tie down point. To be able to recess the tie down ring in the wood you will have to drill a 3-1/4 inch hole in the wood and then, using the backing plate as a template, drill the 4 holes for the mounting bolts. Then, with the steel backing...

  • Is 3/4 Inch Plywood Floor Adequate for D-Ring Tie Down Anchors with Backing Plate for 3,000 lb Car
    The Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor w Backing Plate - Bolt-On - 1/2" Wide - Recessed - 1,600 lbs # RR5K are rated for 5,000 lbs break strength and will work just fine with your application. The 3/4 inch plywood floor is very strong and with the backing plate you won't have any issues with a 3,000 lb car. Any of the options you gave of adding another sheet of plywood or adding a plate between your subframe rails will strengthen your hold so it really comes down to your peace of mind....

  • Size of Hole Saw to Use to Install the Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down RR5K

  • Tie-Downs to Secure UTV to Aluminum Trailer
    Since you have an aluminum trailer I suggest using a tie-down that has a backing plate like # RR5K. This will help reinforce the tie-down since aluminum may not hold up. It would be even better if you can install the tie-downs to the frame of the trailer. This tie-down has a 5,000 pound capacity so that won't be an issue for your UTV. To avoid any oxidation or reaction between the aluminum and steel you should use some sort of gasket material. Pretty much anything that can be cut...

  • Does the Orientation of the Backing Plate Matter on the Brophy Tie Down Part # RR5K
    The orientation of the backing plate on the Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor w Backing Plate part # RR5K does not matter. I called my contact at C.R. Brophy Machine Works to confirm this as well. The reason one side is longer is because different situations will require different clearances. Whichever way gives you the most clearance will be the way you will want to install it. I have attached a sample install video on this tie down for you as well.

  • Installation Methods for Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate # RR5K
    The Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate # RR5K is not application-specific so its preferred method of installation will vary from trailer to trailer. The main factor is the thickness of the material to which it will be mounted. All other things being equal, the installation that only removes the minimum amount of material necessary for clearance under the tie down plate will leave the original surface somewhat stronger than if all of that material were removed.

  • Parts Needed to Add a Storage Hatch on Enclosed Trailer
    It's exactly what you said, a hatch in the floor for some extra storage. Probably for ratchet straps to secure cargo in the trailer. If you wanted to build your own (provided you have enough ground clearance to safely do so) you can use the Paneloc Butt Hinge # H418-204U and then the Trailer Rope Ring # RR02 for a handle. Hardware and trim would need to be acquired at your local hardware store though.

  • Will Backing Plate of Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor # RR5K Prevent Anchor From Ripping Out
    Depends on the condition of the wood but the backing plate of the Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor w Backing Plate # RR5K that you referenced is designed to distribute the weight so that it does not easily rip through the wood. I attached a picture of what the backing plate looks like installed. If the floor is strong enough for the weight of your snowmobile it's going to be strong enough for the backing plate to be effective.

  • Best Tie-Down Recommendation for a Pine Wood Floor Flatbed Trailer Carrying Motorcycles
    I think installing the Recessed Trailer D-Ring, # RR5K, that you have referenced, would be better than # LRB1, because the backing plate is going to help distribute the load from the ring which would be better for your wood decking and make for stronger connection points. If you use this kit with the backing plate an attachment to the frame is not required as the backing plate, which would be underneath the wood floor, would prevent the hardware from pulling out.

  • Brophy D-Ring Compatibility with 1/2 Inch Plywood Decking
    The Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor w Backing Plate - Bolt-On - 1/2" Wide - Recessed - 1,600 lbs # RR5K will work well on 1/2 inch plywood decking as long as you use the backing plate. The recessed anchor will actually sit below your plywood, but the backing plate will help you get the support you need to make it usable. I did confirm this fit with the manufacturer.

  • Is the Brophy D-Ring Strong Enough to Pull a Car Onto a Trailer with a Come Along
    The Brophy D-Ring # RR5K is rated for 5,000 pounds but it depends on what it is mounted to. If the trailer has a steel floor or 2x4 wood floor then it would not be a problem. If it is aluminum you would want to bolt it to a structural crossmember and not straight through a floor or wall. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. If your trailer came with D-Rings you would have to check with the manufacturer for the capacity.

  • Installation of Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down # RR5K on Toy Hauler Wood Floor
    To install the Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate, part # RR5K, you will drill a 3-1/4 inch hole in the plywood floor for the tie-down to be recessed into the plywood floor. Then, you will mark where the holes for the 4 bolts are to be located and drill 4 holes for the bolts. The backing plate will install underneath the plywood floor using the 2-1/4 inch long bolts that go through the 4 holes and use lock washers and nuts. The backing plate is 6-1/2 inches x 6-1/2...

  • Concern About Nuts Vibrating Loose on Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down # RR5K
    You will want to use the included hardware to install the Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down, part # RR5K.

  • Does it Matter Which Way the D-Ring of Part # RR5K Faces

  • Hole Diameter Recommendation for Installing Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor # RR5K
    There's a bit of wiggle room for the hole size needed to install the Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor # RR5K but 3-1/2 inch diameter is the hole size that our installers found worked the best so it would be what I would recommend.

  • Does it Matter Which Way the Backing Plate Faces in Trailer D-Ring Tie Down, # RR5K
    The backing plate can be placed as needed as long as it can be installed properly. As long as the strap is secure, it will not make much difference which way the hole is oriented. I recommend having it placed in such a way as to be further from the tire which would allow for a little more flexibility of what size item you could place in the space between them.

  • Will the Brophy Recessed D-Ring Tie-Down Work on an Enclosed Trailer with Particle Board Floor
    You can use the Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring, # RR5K, on your enclosed trailer, however, my main concern would be the ability of the particle board floor to secure or support a heavy load such as a car. Particle board is weaker than wood boards or plywood. The floor would fail well before the d-ring and that would be the case with most tie-down rings that you would install. It would be best to bolt the d-rings to the trailers frame where possible and add additional reinforcement from...
