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. .

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

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

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. etrailer.com 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

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

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 etrailer.com except to say that I ordered the product Sunday, and it arrived Wednesday with upgraded free shipping. Nice. 91737

Needed item shipped same day I ordered it and eTrailer made sure it was a priority. Always great to work with! 196621

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
My installation used two 5' and two 2' sections. Along with two 4-slot pieces. I removed the trailer bed planks and used my table saw to dado the spaces so the e-tracks are flush with the trailer bed. I used the backing plates (BPEZ) to secure the tracks. 249572

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 etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com. 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

E Track & D ring tie straps Please note I will leave more info later. The package was delivered in a very timely manner. I am at work so will not be able to tell any more until I get home this evening. Will open and inspect I believe that there should be no problem. Will give you more feed back after the week end and I get the product installed. Thank for the fast service will keep your company on the favorite list for my future trailer needs.. Willie 4285

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

I ordered 6 of the 5 ft long E-Track Cargo Control unit and several accessories 3 days ago and just got them today. 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

Price was best online with free shipping. All the E Track I ordered came UPS in perfect condition. I was able to set up my cargo trailer exactly like I need it! 271641
by: Mark P.02/23/2015
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
by: Bill L.03/23/2012
Product arrived a few days after ordering, as expected. It was properly wrapped and there was no shipping damage. Your on-line ordering process is easy and efficient. I'm satisfied with my purchase and would certainly use etrailer again should the need arise. I've already recommended you to a friend who may be in the market for some of your products. 34870
by: Eric R10/07/2014
Everything worked out perfectly. Product arrived in great condition and was of very good quality. The shipping was upgraded free of charge and was much appreciated as we are using the e-track for tie downs inside of our work trailer. Would highly recommend etrailer and look forward to doing business with them again in the future. 154921
by: Ryan E.01/23/2015
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: Scott C04/04/2015
If you are wanting to design a very personalized trailer, then I highly recommend you order your own e-tracks and put them where you want them! These are great products, shipping was very fast and even though the box arrived damaged, everything inside was just fine! I will order again from etrailer.com. 183208
by: vincent sinde08/03/2016
The e track is very solid, I'm using it for my 2 harleys, I have shopped around and etrailer is the best price and value for my trailer parts, shipping was very fast. I had the 10 pieces of 5 foot track in 3 days, unheard of from most places with heavy products. Top notch place, thanks to you guys...... 278887
by: Floyd H.03/05/2016
Products arrived quickly & in good condition. I will be using these in a cube truck & cargo trailer. It will help us when strapping down our equipment. I just saw a similar product in a local hardware store. While the quality looked the same, they were a LOT more expensive in the hardware store. 239795
I just installed the etrack system on my trailer to tie down my Polaris RZR. First off all the build quality of this system is great and does a great job of securing down my RZR. Plus the support at Etrailers is world class, they answered all my questions and made the buying proccess simple. 228135
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

This is going to make my life easier. Also, the salesman that I dealt with was extremely helpful. The only negative critique would be the length of time to process credit card. That is why I ended up speaking with a sales rep. Look forward to doing more business with etrailer. 58684
by: Arthur W Henson06/23/2012
haven't installed yet but the product looks heavy duty. wasn't expecting to to be that substantual (great though) also the sales lady (Leena) was very helpful I think she went above & beyond because I orded one night and two days later it was at my house. Great Job!!! thanks Art 45362

Great selection of products with great prices. Placed order with 3-5 days shipping option on Sunday night at 1:30am and items shipped on Monday and received on Wednesday. Everything was packaged very well and products were delivered as described. Would order from etailer again. 27071

I recently purchased a cargo trailer and it needed securing points, I purchased two 5 ft E-Tracks and related securing devices. They were shipped quickly and I am very pleased with the products. I will most definitely purchase other products from etrailer. 49307

The E-Track was just what I need to augment what was already in my toy hauler. The uniqueness of the E-Track gives me the ability to arrange and secure my Harley and other bulky cargo items in the garage to balance out the weight. Thanks, Mark 27935
by: Rhino Chimney Service11/06/2014
Although I haven't gotten my product installed yet, I can say the pricing was good and the shipping was super fast!! I always try to buy locally, but my local company hadn't responded to my email and I already had my stuff from eTrailer.com!! 159723
by: Darin Y.02/23/2015
Very heavy duty I am very happy with this. At first I was not as confident with buying online metal products do to shipping, but with E-trailer it was great and everything was perfect. looks great and works just as well, thanks George! 175629
This e-track is made of quality material and is easy to install. The track works perfect with the attachments i purchased. I had to drill some new holes as my trailer studs were not compatible for some of the pre-drilled holes. 194066
by: Michael S.04/13/2015
The product is great and shipping turn around time was awesome. George was great to work with and really appreciate the follow up he sent to see if I was satisfied. I highly recommend purchasing from these guys !! 184899
Order was exact and fast delivered! This is high quality equipment at the best price I've ever seen! I haven't installed the parts yet, but when I do, you'll be able to see the quality and functionallity of E-Track! 9472

I was impressed by the speed of delivery and follow up on the product that I purchased . The price with the free shipping was what attracted me initially, but after this order I will definitley buy here first. 27396
by: Jon P03/24/2015
Shopped all over for the best price on E track, shipping on these things is a killer. Etrailer had free shipping on a $100 order so it was a no brainer to get more product for less money than other vendors. 180698

Great product as I've used them before. This time however the package was almost completely destroyed in shipping. Luckily no damage to product but shipping department may want to take a little more care. 38108

Great product very solidly manuctured not flimsy at all. Free Standard Shipping was fast. I ordered 8 ft sections as well smaller pieces late on Saturday and they made it to my house by Wednesday. 179511
I've used E-Track before on a cargo trailer and loved it for tying in my motorcycle and other stuff. First thing I bought for my new utility trailer floor now too. E-Trailer service was fantastic. 147831
Great online Shopping I had a very good experience shopping with etrailer. It was easy to purchase what I wanted and the shipping was much quicker that expected. I will surely do business again. 5339

e traks are very simple and easy to use. i had them in a car trailer and loved them had to buy a set to put into another trailer. makes life a little easier.and there is nothing wrong with that 51373
E Track makes holding down my ATV's a breeze. 4 Camps, 4 straps and you're set, Mounted some track on trailer walls, makes for easy securing of furniture and gear. Easy great addition. 186097
