Distance between mounting holes and dimensions of Brophy D-ring anchor

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 Swiveling D-Ring Anchor with Backing Plate and Hardware Review and Installation

Randy: Hey guys, Randy, here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at a tie-down anchor. Now, tie-down anchors come in all shapes, they come in all sizes. We've got tons of different types here at etrailer. This happens to be one that I like quite a bit. This is a recessed D-Ring tie-down.

And essentially, you get an excellent connection point, it's got a 2000 pound safe working load limit. So it gives us great strength, but it's not something you're going to be tripping over all the time. And for me, that's a big deal. This one's going to be from Brophy. And as you can see, it's designed to fit down and in whatever it is you're trying to anchor something to.

We're using it on a flatbed utility trailer here. This would also work out really well in enclosed trailers or even out on the dock if you wanted to strap down a couple of kayaks or something, keeping that nice low level kind of stance when it's not in use, it sits right down in the pocket here on each side.Is really ideal for walking past it as you're trying to load and unload things, whether you're trying to load washers and dryers and you need to scoot them a little bit or really anything that you're trying to load up, if it gets hung up on something it's kind of an aggravation, then you got to get out, figure out where it's hung up. In this case, all we're really going to have sticking up are the four bolt heads when not in use. And it's very easy just to tip it up, connect our strap, our rope, or whatever we're going to be using to secure items with and get it all secured down. Then as far as making our connection, we just need to lift up on that D-ring.

This is one of my favorite parts about this one. The ring's designed to work with just about any type of strap you're going to have with the exception of the flat hooks, of course.And the thing I really like about it, one of my favorite aspects of it is regardless of the direction that we pull, it rotates that way. That gives me a lot of confidence knowing that I'm pulling on the right angle, going to my item. As you can see, it's got the nice heavy steel construction, really well-made in my opinion. And it also has that clear zinc finish on it.

Now, that's going to help make sure that we don't have to worry about rust and corrosion for a very long time. If you're using it on an enclosed trailer or somewhere where it's covered, it's not really a big deal, but on a utility trailer like this, I think it's excellent to have that protection on there. So you're not going to have to deal with any of those issues. Here's that backing plate and what it's going to look like. As you can see, it's got a nice large width to it. This helps to spread the energy out over a greater area.See, the bolts pass all the way through. Just provides us a lot of support here on that bottom side, and for most wood applications or any weaker material for that matter, I definitely recommend getting that so you can get it nice and secure. You can see, overall, we're looking at about six and a quarter inches total diameter, just to give you an idea of the size you can expect. Usable portion inside the inside on our D-ring is going to be about three and a quarter at its widest. Now, we have other recess D-rings available as well. This one happens to be from CargoSmart. It's very similar in capacity. I think this one comes in about 1,667 pounds. I like it. I like the way it sits down there nice and flush. And we do have a ring here. It's a little bit smaller, I think, than what we're getting on the other one. The thing I like about the other one is the way it pivots.So, if we are trying to run a strap from this point coming back, it looks pretty good. But when we start pulling from the side, my confidence wanes in it just slightly. I know it's going to hold up. I know it's going to do the job. It just kind of looks weird, pulling in a weird angle on it. That's why I think for a recess D-ring, this would be the way I would go. This would be the one I'd own. I like the angles. I like that it's a little bit larger, has slightly higher capacity. And as far as finished quality, it's about hand-in-hand. Now, of course, these aren't going to do you any good without a good set of working straps. If you've already got some and they're in good condition, great. If not, we offer several different sizes, several different weight capacities here at etrailer. One I recommend for your light to medium loads, it would be the etrailer four-pack kit with a carrying bag. We've got keepers on the end, we've got the holder here for the strap, our handle's a little bit nicer, a little bit larger.They've basically taken all the good things we liked about all different types of straps that we carry, put it all in one kit. Now the tie-down's going to be available a few different ways for you depending on your needs and your situation you're going to be mounting it to. We'll talk about that a little bit more once we get into the install portion, but we've got just the single. It's going to have the hardware you need to mount it and the backing plate. We've got a four-pack that same way. So four tie downs, four backing plates, four sets of hardware. Or you can get just the tie-down itself. If you have your own idea, maybe you're going to weld or bolt it on in a different application, you can just get the tie-downs. You're not going to have that extra stuff you're not really going to need.Now, for your installation process, there's kind of two ways you can go about it. This is going to be about 7/8ths Of an inch thick from where it mounts to the bottom. So, in some situations, and we've done it here before, you're going to use a hole saw, regardless. So we've got our hole saw. The part that's going to be recessed is four and 3/8ths of an inch, and again, 7/8ths inch, so about an inch thick. So, if you want to, you can use your hole saw, you can mark it, take it down about an inch, and then you can chisel out the wood that remains in there. Now, I like to do it a little bit differently. What I like to do, I like to go all the way through. That way, I know there's not going to be any water sitting in that recess, you're not going to have to worry about that.Now, if you did want to recess it and leave some wood in there, you could drill several holes through it to give it an area to run out. But I think it's simpler, and I think it's easier just to go straight through. I'm using a four and 3/8ths inch hole saw. Generally, with a hole saw, it's just a little bit bigger than what it states. So, it should be just about ideal for this situation. So we're going to get it started. You see we've marked our four holes. I just used the D-ring as a template there and we need to get these holes really straight in and out. Basically, we've got that backing plate that's going to go on the bottom. See, that matches up with those holes pretty well. So as long as we can get these through there straight, shouldn't give us a whole lot of issue when we go to put it on the back.If you get these in there crooked, a lot of times, what you'll have to do is kind of open this up, open your hole up a little bit. That can kind of be a pain, so get them as straight as you can. I'm going to start with a little bit smaller bit, just so it doesn't walk as much as I go down through the wood, then we'll finish that up with a 5/16th to get to the proper hole size. Once you get your bolts down in through there, we'll head to the underside and get our backing plate on. Now, I like the backing plate for most wood applications. Even with this nice thick wood here, I think it's a good idea to have it underneath there. If you're going to be mounting this to steel, you could even weld these onto a trailer, if you had a solid steel floor, use appropriate hardware, you might need 5/16th inch bolts. You might be able to use this hardware, but you're not really going to need the backing plate. So if you've already got it, I'd probably go with just the base.If you don't or if you're going to be using it in a wood application, it's not going to hurt to have this on there. It gives us that great weight capacity. Now we can get our backing plate installed and it's okay to kind of try it on a few different angles. It's pretty square, but if it doesn't go one way, just rotate it the other way, see if it'll go. You see, that's a little snug, but I think we can get our hardware started on that. You'll use whatever hardware you've decided, or if you get the kit, your lock washer and follow that up with a nut. Then once we get everything started, we'll use our 13 millimeters. So we'll just get them cinched down here, 13 millimeter top and bottom. Once you've got them all snug, at that point, they're going to be ready for use.Then, of course, at that point, you just need to strap down your load. See, it does a great job, creates a really good anchor point for you. So as you can see, it's a nice heavy-duty secure attachment point. I think if you're looking for something recess, this is going to be just about ideal for your situation. This would definitely be something I'd own and install on my trailer..

Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchor w Backing Plate and Hardware - Bolt-On - Recessed Mount - 2,000 lbs - RR6K

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (121 Customer Reviews)

This sturdy D-ring serves as 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 and is zinc-plated for corrosion resistance. Includes mounting bracket.

I like the flexibility of the swiveling D-ring and it's recessed in the floor.



- RR6K
by:

Just remember, these are rated to 6000 lbs, but the floor board they're bolted to probably aren't. You'll definitely want a steel backer behind these if you're really going to crank down on them. These were additional tie downs for a race car, so I welded 3/16" plate between the trailer's frame rails and bolted through those.



- RR6K
by:

A good starting kit out of the box. I drilled drain holes in the wells of the bracket to allow rain water a path out. The backing plate holes are a little tight and the mounting hardware assembles easier if those holes are drilled out one or two drill sizes larger. Installed on a steel deck trailer very nicely.

by:

These things are huge. Fit and finish are better than expected. I received a complete order down to every nut and lock washer. I couldn’t find this style and load rating anywhere else. Very pleased. I used a 4 1/2” hole saw, works perfectly....not sure why the instructional video calls for 4 3/4”

by:

Tie-down rings installed easily and are more sturdy and heavy duty than I expected. The swivel is nice as it makes the anchorage more versatile. Plus they look great.


Comments
Ive now hauled a couple vehicles in the trailer, utilizing these anchors. I would definitely buy again, and as a matter of fact I am planning to get a few more to install. I just need a few more so I have more tie-down options.

Bought these tie downs to install on a new utility trailer I purchased for hauling my motorcycle around. I would have given them 5 stars but the installation was a little more of a pain than I thought it would be. If you are not comfortable with using a router, you might be better off buying a different setup or using a buddy to help install. Otherwise, these are great tie downs.

I bought these as tie down points for a Harbor Freight trailer - overkill I know. But they work great.

Added these to my trailer so I could secure our side x sides separately. They are an exact match to the ones installed from the factory by Kiefer on our trailer. Rated for 6000 lbs. and appear to be very capable. I will definitely do business with etrailer again as they answered all my questions and were very helpful picking out a weight distribution hitch for my set up as well. Thanks etrailer!

I purchased these swiveling D-rings to install on my gooseneck trailer for strapping down vehicles and other items that are awkward to strap using the D-rings on the rub rails. I haven’t installed them yet but the product likes to be good quality. I like how it’s a complete package with the hardware and the backing plate included. The only thing I would change is that I’d rather have carriage bolts instead of regular hex bolts just to have a smoother finish, but I’m overly picky. The only reason I gave the D-rings a 4 star rating is b/c I haven’t installed or used them yet. I received my package in a timely manner and everything was packaged nicely. I have had good luck so far with using Etrailer.com and would recommend them to anyone.



- RR6K
by:

I don't know why no one else has reviewed this kit yet, but in any case I am sending mine back because of the lack of carriage bolts. I had watched the install video of the 5K version which has carriage bolts (and square holes). I prefer the design of these, but wish they were about 2/3rds the size and came with square holes and carriage bolts. The steel is really thick, so filing square holes by hand is a chore (I tried with a Dremel tool also). Who wants to deal with sharp hex bolts sticking up to snag everything when done? Not me. Too much hassle to fix more than a couple of them by hand. FYI the included bolts are 5/16" x 2.25" zinc-plated hex heads.



- RR6K
by:

These have proven to be very versatile in tying down everything from furniture to motorcycles. They are easy enough to install although I did change out the bolts supplied to a round head to make them less snag prone when sliding cargo over them. I made sure when I drilled the holes through the floor I was right next to a c channel of the frame so at least one bolt was going through a frame member in addition to the backing plate. They are very well made and strong. I would highly recommend these over the standard d rings that I had in my last trailer.

Very fast shipping, came with a bottom doubler plate and hardware. Very substantial tiedowns! I am dressing a 12X7 box trailer to carry motorcycles and these tiedowns will be just the ticket!

  • Difference Between Brophy Tie-Down # RR06 And # RR6K
    There is no difference between the D-Ring Tie Down, part # RR06 and the tie-down that is included in the # RR6K other than the backing plate and the mounting hardware. the D-Ring is the same for both of these items. These have a capacity of 6,000 lbs and a safe working load limit of 2,000 lbs. These are a bolt-on design. The recessed ring swivels 360 degrees. I have attached a photo of the tie-down that shows the dimensions you can check out.

  • Recessed D Ring Recommendation for Securing 4k Vehicle to Enclosed Car Hauler
    For a 4,000 lb car the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchor w Backing Plate and Hardware # RR6K that you referenced would work well. These have a 2,000 lb working load limit and if you used 4 of these (one on each corner of the vehicle) you'd be good. Since your floor is 3/4 inch plywood I'd recommend attaching the backing plate of this kit to a metal crossmember so that you have a more sturdy connection point.

The CargoBuckle G3 Retractable Ratchet Tie-Down Strap - Flush Mount # IMF18804 is a great option for something like this because it will mount beneath the floor of your cargo trailer (the mounting hardware is included).
