Brophy Tie Down Anchors - RR5K

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.

Video Transcript for Brophy Tie Down Anchors - Trailer Tie-Down Anchors - RR5K Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Brophy D ring tie down anchor with the included backing plate. Now, this tie down provides a solid point to secure your cargo with straps or bungee cords. We see these used a lot in trailer applications, such as on the flooring of utility trailers, or on the flooring and walls of enclosed trailers. It's a really nice design. Very strong and durable.We have this ring right here, which when it's not in use, it lays completely flat, so that way if you're going to drive over it, like if you're going to pull a UTV on your trailer, or a golf cart, it's not going to effect it. Also, if you're loading other gear, and you need it to go over this tie down or up against it, it's not going to effect it.

So, it's a really nice design. Flush mount installation. It's actually a recessed mount installation, and then it lays flush with the surface.But this lays flat, so when you need to use it, you can just lift it up, and you can see the range of motion that it provides right there. So, you can really attach your straps from multiple angles. Also, the recessed design allows your cargo to easily slide or be placed over the ring without any interference.The included backing plate provides greater support than mounting the anchor directly to your wood floor or wall.

So, this goes on the reverse side, or on the other side of the installation surface, and provides that reinforcement that it needs for its max capacities.But again, the backing plate is included. We're looking at a zinc plated steel construction, which resists rust and corrosion, and retains its strength through repeated use. It's a simple bolt on installation with the included mounting hardware. So, it includes four nuts, four lock washers, and four 3/8 inch by 2 and 1/4 inch long bolts.The maximum load or break strength rating is 5000 pounds. It has a working load limit of 1600.

A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick starting with the actual anchor and the plate that goes around it, or the bezel. Edge to edge going this direction, it measures 4 and 1/2 inches. Edge to edge going this direction, it measures 4 and 7/8ths inches. Now, the ring, that material right there, has a diameter of a 1/2 inch. The usable space, this inner diameter is 1 and 3/8ths of an inch.Now, when installing it, you will need a 3 and 1/2 inch diameter hole for it to lay flush.

You can use the hole in the backing plate as your cut template. Now, when it comes to the bolt hole measurements, these measure 3/8ths of an inch by 3/8ths of an inch. Again, the bolt size is 3/8ths by 2 and 1/4 inches long, and then the backing plate is square design. Measures 6 and 1/2 inches by 6 and 1/2 inches.Please note, tie down anchors must be chosen according to their safe working load limit. So, the weight of your secured cargo must not exceed the combined working load limit of the anchors being used. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy D ring tie down anchor with the included backing plate and mounting hardware.

I had the chance to use the d rings a couple of weeks ago to secure my ATV, the tie downs worked as expected.

Greetings George, As always your products do the "JOB" they are intended to do. I have purchased these before and use them to secure a 800 lb Can-Am quad in a enclosed cargo trailer with Erickson Ratchet straps. This combination works every time, but now I have to transport 2 quads, so that is why I bought 2 more tiedowns. The reason you received 4 stars is that the written description of this product is 1,600 lb for the working load and the video says 5,000. Either way these products work, are easy to install with 2 people and have not failed in any many so far. Respectfully, Gary Peterson 567366

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

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

Hold downs came last week and I installed the yesterday. The only problem was that the mount holes aren't square. The bottom plate only fits one way, and of coarse it wouldn't fit where I had it. Cut the plate and everything is fine. I mounted them in the corners of my race trailer to hold everything in place going down the road. 183471

I have installed four of these and ordered two more. They are easily installed as long as you have the tools as expertly outlined in the install video - only be careful of hole size as videos and install description differed in 4" to 4 1/4" or 4 1/2". I used 4 1/4" and it fit without having to drill out space for the internal bolts - just stepped on it and it went flush. 188369

Installed four Brophy D-ring tiedowns in the 3/4" plywood floor of my 7x17 Car Mate cargo trailer. All tiedowns included the necessary hardware. Used a 3-1/4" hole saw to drill the openings as recommended by e-trailer. 3-1/4" is probably optimal to prevent an oversize hole and to maximize load capability, but had to cut a couple of small notches in all of the holes using a sabre saw to accommodate the hinge bolt. Otherwise a 3-1/2" hole saw would probably work fine. 589447

Ordering and receiving was great. Really like the tracking screen. I have ordered this item before and there wasn't a problem. This time one of the packages was missing one bolt, I bought one at my local hardware so not a big problem. I feel it could have been packaged better, the box had a couple of holes. 498319

by:

Seems quality built. Installed 8 on my 16ft trailer. Had to kinda get the hang of drilling. Would recommend cutting your 3 1/2 hole, then put the top tie down in, then drill one bolt hole and put the plate on the backside, tightening down one bolt and nut. Try and even it out between top piece and bottom piece, then drill another hole for another bolt and nut. I tried drilling them all first and it didn't work as well. The tie downs will strap ATV's onto a trailer. 491879

  • Electric Trailer Winch Recommendation for Hauling Car into Enclosed Trailer
  • The Bull Dog Utility Winch, # BDW15020, is a great choice for the application.. This winch is designed primarily for race car trailers, open and enclosed and will control the cable feed in and out so you could stop the vehicle at any point when loading and would not have to worry about a runaway vehicle when unloading. For installing the winch in the trailer it is hard to make a recommendation without seeing the trailer and framing under the trailer. You can mount the winch in any location...

  • 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...

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.

  • 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.

The Brophy D-ring # RR01-C you referenced has a WLL of 400-lbs, half of what you need to match your other D-ring, if it is indeed rated for 2500-lbs breaking strength.

  • Installation Methods for Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate # RR5K

The main factor is the thickness of the material to which it will be mounted.

Then, you will mark where the holes for the 4 bolts are to be located and drill 4 holes for the bolts.

  • Are Brophy Trailer D-Ring Tie Downs # RR05 Suitable for Use on a Car Trailer
  • According to my contact at Brophy, their # RR05 Trailer D-Ring Tie Down has a working load limit of 1600-lbs and a break strength of 5,000-lbs. (Working Load Limit or WLL is the maximum burden that should be put on the device in daily use.) This makes this sturdy 2-1/2-lb tie down perfect for use on a car hauler trailer. In a typical trailer configuration with four or more of these tie downs being used at the same time you will have at least 20,000-lbs of capacity for securing the loaded...

  • 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 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...

  • Does a Recessed D-Ring have to be Positioned Any Certain Way in a Trailer
  • No, you can mount a recessed D-ring in any orientation you need and it will perform the same and have the same rating. I recommend # RR5K because it comes with a backing plate and hardware. It is rated for 5,000 pounds limited to the capacity of the surface it is attached to. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you.

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...

  • Mounting Hole Spacing on Erickson Horseshoe Rope Cleats, Part # EM09090
  • The Erickson Horseshoe Rope Cleats (2-Pack), part # EM09090, have three mounting holes in each and include Phillips-head mounting screws. I pulled a sample from our warehouse to take precise measurements of the mounting holes. Please refer to the attached photo. The two mounting holes on the bottom of the horseshoe are spaced 1-7/8 inches apart, measured center of hole to center of hole. The distance between either of these bottom holes and the middle/top hole is 2-3/16 inches. My...

  • 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.

  • Motorcycle Tie-Down Recommendations for a 700 Pound Motorcycle and Pressure Treated Flat Bed
  • The CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Downs, # IMF103745-86, would work well to secure your 700 pound motorcycle. If at all possible, bolt the tie-downs to the metal part of the frame. If you have attach it to the wood bed, I recommend adding a steel backing plate on the underside of the wood for support. You could also add some D-rings, like # RR5K, which comes with a backing plate. You may also need adapter # IMF14086 to use with these D-rings. You could also use straps...

  • Installing D-Ring Surface Mount Tie-Down Anchors on a Aluminum Snowmobile Trailer
  • The Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor - Bolt-On - 3-1/2" Wide - Surface Mount - 1,600 lbs # SR15-C are steel anchors with a zinc finish. Although the zinc finish will help avoid galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals, the connection by drilling into the aluminum frame is not the best option. It is true the frame will typically be a stronger connection point than the wood deck, but in this case the wood is a better option when secured close to the frame yet not touching it. A good...

  • 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.
