Erickson E-Track System Review

Video Transcript for Erickson E-Track System Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Erickson E-Track horizontal tie-down system. These tracks are going to come in three different lengths. We have the 8', which is part number E19135. The 5' is part number E19148. Also available in a 2' section; that part number is EM59150. The way the E-Track system works is we've got these nice hooks that are located on the end of all of our accessories. We just lift up on the spring-loaded arm here.

That's going to allow us to bring it down to our E-Track. We'll slide that spring-loaded side in, push it down, back over, and then let that spring-load come over and it will catch. That's going to lock that into position. As you can see, we'll just bring that connection point on this side right up against the generator, pull our slack out, and not only is it giving us that side to side resistance but also up and down. As you can see here, the system's nice and versatile. We can secure multiple items to one track. A few great accessories to handle all of your cargo needs could be something like the d-ring they offer, part number 59147; the d-ring with the 6" strap, part number E59143; the tie-off ring, part number 59131; the roller idler, part number EM09144; or the adjustable wheel net, part number 77314. Today we used the ratchet strap, part number EM59136; this is the 12' version.

They also have that available in a 16 and a 20'. The cam lock strap that we used was the 10'; its part number was EM59151. This is also available in a 12, 16, and 20' length. We've got our 8' piece of E-Track here that we're ready to install. Customer wants it right down the middle of the trailer. We're just going to lay it out here temporarily.

To fit our E-Track here on our wooden trailer we're going to use the backing plate designed for it; its part number is BPEZ. For our particular application today we've got 7/16" nut driver, 1/4" drill bit we're going to use to drill holes for our 1/4" bolts. We've got a small flock of those as you can see. We've also got a ratchet here if we've got any tighter spots where we can't get the impact driver in. Please keep in mind, the hardware is not included. We've already centered up the rear portion of our tracks and we're going to center the front portion here.

Just made a small mark on there to indicate where center was. Now we're mounting it into wood, and if you're going to be mounting it into wood yourself a tip that I recommend is once you get your position where you want it, just take a small screw - we had these self-tappers laying around - and just put it in a hole here lightly, just to hold this track in place and keep it from moving. As you can see, we've spaced our mounting plates out evenly along our track for our 8' section; we've going to be using four of them. That's going to be 16 1/4" bolts going through; that's really going to give us some good, strong holding power. We're going to mark once we've identified the matching holes. We're going to mark here where we need to drill. Now these backing plates, of course, are going to be underneath the trailer, underneath the wood, but we just wanted to give you an idea of how we plan on spacing them out to give us the most holding pressure. Now that we've got all of our holes marked we're going to go ahead and start drilling them out. Now that we've got most of our holes drilled out we're going to start putting our bolts through. We'll just go down the line, get all of our bolts put in. Then we'll get this trailer up in the air and show you how we'll attach it on the bottom. We're just going to take our mounting plate, slide it right up on there, hold it in place so it doesn't come down at you, and then we're going to put a lock washer and a nut on each of our bolts there. Then we can just use our nut driver and run it down. Now that we've got all 16 of our nuts tight down here, let's go up top and start securing some gear. The E-Track end cap is sold separately; its part number is ET8730. That will complete today's look at the Erickson E-Track tie-down system. We used part number E19135 today of the 8' section. This is also available in a 5' section, part number E19148; and the 2' section, part number EM59150. .

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

As requested, here are some pics of my e-track installation. I find the raised e-tracks in the floor very problematic and dangerous so I made sure they were recessed. This is now an extremely versatile cargo trailer. 110009


Do you have installation instructions for the recessed mounting?

comment by: Rob H - 03/30/2014


I wondered the same thing when we first got his review. He mounted the e-track, then cut aditional pieces of plywood to fit between the e-tracks.

I recently purchased a 2012 Haulmark 6' x 12' cargo trailer.I knew I would need to have some type of interior system for fastening items. I originally was considering recessed tie rings, but when I located your web site I realized that the etrack was a superior method for securing loads. I researched several sources but ultimately decided to purchase from your company due to the clear and concise advice I found your web site. The installation video was also helpful. I also found the shipping incentive to factor into my decision. Items arrived very quickly and in good condition. Installation went smoothly and I was done in less than two hours. 36542

This was my first time using the E-Track system. The rails came in securely packaged. Install was straight forward once I found a system that worked. A word of caution when installing: the holes actually offset a bit so don't use them to line up. My technique was to measure where I wanted the very top of the track to be at both ends just beyond the install area. Install a small wood screw at each mark and stretch a line tight between them. Then just line up the top edge to the string. Too simple. Screwing into the metal studs seems very secure by itself so once the additional screws are added to the plywood I won't worry about the holding strength. Since this is a product review I won't go into detail about except to say that I ordered the product Sunday, and it arrived Wednesday with upgraded free shipping. Nice. 91737

How did you attach the horizontal E-Track to the sides of the trailer?Did you just attack to the metal studs? Did you bolt all the way thru the side walls?

What can you say? Etrack is the industry standard for strength, ease of installation and mounting adaptability imo. We use etrack in all our trailers and wouldn't even think of owning a trailer without it. did a great job delivering our etrack (and other products) and customer service has been phenomenal in every aspect of the word. Highly recommended:-) 97954

I bought two 5 foot sections of E-Track for a new cargo trailer. Installation was easy and straightforward. The product works great. It allows me to tie-in my musical equipment and keep it from sliding around in transit. It has really been a great addition to my new trailer! 41301

I have Erickson E-Track on all my ATV trailers. The product allows you to have a tie-down capability virtually anywhere on the floor of your trailer, or on enclosed trailers, many folks also install it on the walls to secure items. The E-Track material is very, very strong. Although over the years I've hit many potholes, dips in the road and other obstacles that have dislodged my tie-down straps from their anchors, but I've never had any E-track rail or tie-down come lose, stretch, bend, crack or other condition. It's a quality product that is made to last a lifetime! That's why I just ordered a another set for my newest trailer. 176071

I ordered the e-track on a Wednesday and recived it 3 bussiness days later, it was packaged great and was undamaged. I haven't mounted the track yet because its just to cold outside to work, but it seems to be made of a slightly thicker gauge steel then the stuff from harbor freight, which is good, especially for heavy items. The price is great to, better than any actual in-person stores I looked at, and the free shipping tops it off. I did have some minor isues with credit card processing, but the customer service was very professional and it was quickly taken care of. I will definitely be ordering from them again come spring time. 167845

I am familiar with e-track, I installed in a trailer a few years ago. It is a superior way to tie down and strap cargo. Would strongly recomend it to any Trailer / Truck owner to secure loads. In my case I am installing e-track on the floor of the tralier to secure autos for enclosed transport and the Ericson Straps are made just for that purpose. I am confident they will last for years and do a great job utilizing the e-track to secure any vehicles I transport. E track I already had installed is already picture in the Horizontal review. 6289

I have not installed the product yet - that will be a project for this weekend. HOWEVER - this is my first purchase from and I am MORE THAN IMPRESSED with their service and speed to ship the product. I had my order less than 48 hours after placing the order. The email communications of order acknowledgement and shipping acknowledgement was fantastic and I am glad I choose I chose them initially based on price, now I will continue to remain a customer based on their great service! Thanks etrailer! 24083

Very good for a modular set of tiedown points, using them on the inside walls of my enclosed trailer for moving across the country. Very very sturdy and all quality built, I would definitely recommend these for areas where just having one or 2 permanent tie downs isn't really helpful. My only hope would be that maybe in the future they find a way to add a little more depth behind the track so that you could use standard hooked tie downs without HAVING to buy the etrack attachments to do it. 154696

System works great. I use it to tie down 2 dirt bikes and a quad in my enclosed trailer. It was easy to install. I put it on the floor as opposed to the wall simply because of my plans to install some other equipment on the walls. 7768

All items came sooner than expected, of which I'm grateful because I can start the project of installing the e-track system in my just aquired small cargo trailer this week-end. I'll be back to order more as time and money allow. Thanks guys. Great job !! 31029

I was surprised at how heavy duty this was and HEAVY. This biggie and the smaller 2 footer are very, very strong. I ended up cutting some of the 2 foot long ones into small sections the same length as the e-track backing plates. Even in small sections, this stuff is hugely strong. I probably ordered too much of it but I know I will use it elsewhere. 175799

Everything worked out perfectly. Product arrived in great condition and was of very good quality.

After searching the massive selection of different products for anchoring I settled on E trac. I was pleased to find Etrailers had what I needed and even more pleased at the efficiency of shipping and customer communication. As a business man myself I take this as a lesson in customer service, and will strive to do the same. 171016

by: Timothy03/12/2013

The e-track system is wonderful. The tracks allow multiple tie-down points inside of a trailer, but they do not intrude into the space because they are nearly flat. My trailer has them on the floors and walls, which gives flexibility for anchoring obects both vertically and horizontally. 70156

  • Recessed E-Track Installation on Walls of an Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • Installing the E-Track system to your enclosed trailers upright frame is a good idea for the strongest mounting location and cutting the plywood out to fit around the E-Track would not be an issue that I can see as long as the plywood sides have enough mounting locations left to secure it safely in the trailer and the Accessories for the E-Track can be installed in the track.

  • Installation of Erickson E-Track # E-19148 to Plywood Trailer Floor
  • Securing the Erickson E-Track # E-19148 to 3/4 inch plywood should be sufficient. 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. For tie downs and straps I would recommend either the E-Track Tie-Off Ring # 59131, or E-Track 2 inch D-Ring, part # E59143. Also available is the Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet, part # EM59136.

The other method you described where you said you wanted to hang the bikes could possibly work but most likely if you were to hit bumps in the road your bike might bounce and become unattached and fall. The E-Track 2 inch D-Ring # E59143 would work well with a set of tie-downs like the Erickson Cargo Tie Downs # 05605....

Using a steel plate for support is also the way to go. You have a good grasp on what needs to be done. For a wheel chock, you can use something like # RA-17. It accepts wheels up to 6.5 inches wide.

  • Tie Downs and E-Track Recommendation for Securing a BMW K1200, ATV, and Dirt Bike on a Trailer
  • I would recommend using 2 sections of Horizontal E-Track, # E19148, down each side and 2 sections of Horizontal E-Track down the middle of your trailer, 6 sections in all, to give you as many tie down options as possible for securing all of your different toys. Your BMW K1200 sounds like the heaviest item you will need to tie down. I recommend using 2 packages of the Retractable Ratchet Straps, # 34414, along with 4 of the E-Track Tie-Off Rings, # 59131. Four tie down points are needed...

  • How to Install E-Track Cargo Control on Plywood Floor in Cargo Van
  • Erickson E-Track Trailer Cargo Control tracks come in various lengths, such as the 5-foot horizontal track, part # E19148. We also offer a 2-foot length, part # EM59150, and a 8-foot length, part # E19135. To install them in your cargo van on its plywood floor you can use either galvanized or stainless steel nuts and bolts to avoid issues with rust. The plywood layer on the floor of your van by itself may not be strong enough to hold the E-Tracks. To be safe you need to find points...

  • What Thickness Of Plywood Should Be Used For The E-Track Trailer Cargo Control, # E19148,
  • I would use 3/4 inch plywood to cover the studs and secure the plywood to the trailer frame studs in as many points as possible. Then, use 1/2 inch wood screws to secure the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control, # E19148, to the plywood. I would use screws at least every other hole if not every hole, starting from the center and working to the ends to ensure the track lays flat.

  • E Track Trailer Cargo Control # E19148 Mounting Location for Securing a Harley In Enclosed Trailer
  • I would recommend that you run the tracks horizontally, that way you could secure your Harley from multiple points around the bike to the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control - Horizontal - 5 Foot Long, part # E19148. I included a link to a video review of this product below for you to check out. I would also recommend using a E-Track 2 inch D-Ring, 3.5K, part # E59143, to make securing your bike with straps easier. I have included a link below to a video of the # E59143 on a horizontal # E19148. The...

  • Installing E-Track on 1 Inch Thick Wood Floored Trailer
  • A 1 inch think wood floor should be sufficient. I would use 3/4 long wood screws to provide some more gripping threads. I would use screws at least every other hole if not every hole, starting from the center and working to the ends to ensure the track lays flat. Use enough tension from the straps to hold the bikes securely, but do not over-tension them as you might blow our your fork seals.

  • Spare Tire Mount Recommendation for Trailers with Limited Frame Space
  • We do have a couple different spare tire mount options for you to check out. You could go with the Spare Tire Carrier for E-Track Systems, # RA-16HST, that you referenced, but you will also need an E-Track rail. For this I recommend the 4 ft Vertical E-Track, # E19146. The E-track system was primarily designed to be installed inside of an enclosed trailer, but you could install it on the outside of the trailer if you would like. I do not recommend installing it on the side of the trailer...

  • Using E Track to Secure Vehicles
  • I would recommend installing the 5 foot sections of E Track, part # E19148 directly to the cargo floor of the truck. You could then use a series of Adjustable Wheel Nets, part # 77314 to secure the vehicle wheels to the E Track. The method of securing the E Track to the truck floor will depend on the construction of the floor itself.

  • Erickson E-Track 8 Foot Installation on a Utility Trailer for Hauling a Golf Cart
  • To install the Erickson E-Track 8 foot section # E19135 on your trailer you can use rivets, screws, or weld it to the trailer. Since your trailer is aluminum, welding may not be an option since the E-Track is steel. I recommend using screws, or bolts and nuts, and backing plates like the Brophy # BPEZ. Another option that some of our other customers have done, is to use additional E-Track on the bottom of their trailer, and liked the option of having additional tie down locations. (Rob's...

  • Do the E-Track Cargo Control Systems Resist Corrosion
  • The E-Track Trailer Cargo Control # E19148 that you referenced has a protective, galvanized finish that protects it from rust and corrosion. Under normal use you would not have to worry about rust or corrosion even with an open trailer it should resist corrosion for a very long time. But if the product experienced a lot of exposure to salt water over time I am sure that eventually it would begin to rust. I attached a couple pictures of this system installed on a couple trailers for you...

  • Installing the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control on a 5th Wheel Toy Hauler with Rubber Flooring
  • I spoke with my contact at Erickson and she said the E-Track Cargo Management System, # E19148, can be mounted on the floor of your fifth wheel toy hauler with rubber flooring. You will want to make sure that when you are screwing the track to the floor that you are using screws long enough to penetrate through the rubber flooring and through the wooden floor underneath and into the support members under the floor. The rubber flooring is not strong enough to secure a load. I have attached...

  • Fastening E-Track to the Sides of an Enclosed Trailer
  • The screw holes on the E-Tracks are 1/4 inch in diameter and the E-Tracks are made of galvanized steel. Erickson does not recommend a specific type of fastener, so you can use any type of steel fastener, screw or bolt, that you wish. If you choose to use screws, be sure the underside of the head is flat and not curved so it sits flush on the E-Track. I also recommend using screws long enough to pass through the plywood and into the support beams where you can. This will provide the best...

  • E-Track Recommendations For 7 By 14 Enclosed Trailer To Carry Classic Motorcycles
  • With cargo like your two classic Harleys you will want to make sure they are really well secured to prevent any damage. I recommend securing the E-Tracks to something more stable than just wood. If you are attaching the tracks to the floor I recommend you make sure they are secured either to the metal structure of the trailer or use metal plates like the E-Track Backing Plate, part # BPEZ, to make it as secure as possible. If the interior floor and walls are 7 ft long I recommend 5...

  • What Size Fasteners Should be Used to Install E-Track Inside of a Box Truck
  • On the E-Track # E19148 the mounting holes are 1/4 inch in diameter so you will need to have fasteners that have a head larger than that, are long enough to go through where you are mounting the track, and are appropriate for the material you are mounting the E-Track to. You will not have to remove the plywood so long as the E-Track is attached to a reinforced part of the wall (frames, support structures, etc.). I have included a link to a video review for you. If you need a backing...

  • E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 Recommendation and Compatibility
  • You could use a E-Track Wood Beam Socket with the E-track setup that you have. I spoke with my contact at Erickson and she went out and put a E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 into an E-Track Trailer Cargo Control # E19148 and found that the # 59149 would not hang over the bottom of the E-track once installed and would work for your setup. I attached a review video for the E-Track system for you to check out also.

  • Installing an E-Track Cargo Control to Secure a Harley Electra Glide in a Enclosed Trailer
  • The method you described for installing the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control # E19148 should be sufficient, but if you really wanted to secure the tracks you could run wood screws through the holes into your plywood floor as well as the self tappers into the frame of your trailer.

  • Will the Angle of Pull Affect The Weight Capacity of Erickson E-Track # E19148 or D-Ring # E59143
  • The direction of pull doesn't necessarily affect the load capacity of either the e track or the D-Rings, however, when ratcheting down your load, the direction of pull should be parallel to the direction that the Erickson # E19148 e track is running. D-Rings, such as Erickson # E59143 are an excellent hook-up option for a couple of reasons: first, because if you happen to have different loads at different attachment points, these rings are easily movable and second because they have a 3,500lb...

  • Adjustable Wheel Net for a Can-Am 27x9x12 Tire
  • The Adjustable Wheel Net, # 77314, is a universal fit item that is designed to fit most tires up to, but not exceeding, 29 inches in diameter. Your Can-Am tires are 27 inches in diameter so there is a very good chance the wheel net will fit. This wheel net is designed to be used with the E-Track Trailer Cargo Control System, # E19148. I have included a link to a video review of this system for you. If you do not have the E-Track system, we also have a wheel net for tires up to 29...

  • E-Track Ratchet Straps to Secure Various Diameter Pipes in an Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • The Erickson ratchet strap # EM59136 would be a good option. This strap is 12 feet long and 2 inches wide. I have linked a video review for you to check out to the right. There is also an 8 foot version, # SLLS28RER, 16 foot version, # EM59139, and 20 foot version, # EM59140. What I would do is ratchet strap each bundle with a regular ratchet strap such as # EM34420. Then I would secure them against the trailer using the E-track and E-Track ratchet straps.

  • Can the E-Track Cargo Control # E19148 be Mounted at Different Heights
  • The E-Track can be mounted at any height that you need. I have attached a photo that was submitted by one of our customers with the tracks at different heights on his trailer for you to check out. For the best support, I recommend attaching the E-Tracks to as many frame supports as possible in the walls or on the floor. You may also be interested in the E-Track Plastic End Cap, # ET8730, to cover the metal edges at the ends of the tracks.

  • Optimal Direction of Pull When Using E Track
  • In order to achieve the full capacity of the ratchet straps and the track, the direction of the pull should be parallel to the direction that the e track is running. How much the capacity would be diminished by pulling 90 degrees to the side will depend on the weight of the load. If the load is close to the capacity of the straps, pulling out 90 degrees could damage the clip that locks the strap into the track or possibly damage the track itself.
