Video Transcript for Pack Em Ladder Rack Installation

Today on our trailer we'll be looking at the Pack'Em Ladder rack for exterior side wall of an enclosed trailer for one ladder. Part number PK-28WL-BM. Now the main reason you want a ladder rack like this is on an enclosed trailer, sometimes you don't have the necessary room inside for your long ladder, especially if you have an extension ladder. This will allow you easy access to your ladder and still have all the room inside your trailer to have your construction equipment and your construction supplies. Now for convenience, our ladder rack comes with bungee cords in order to secure the ladders to the rack. Now for added security to help prevent theft of your ladders when they're installed on the rack, you can use a cable lock with a padlock to secure them on down. We have several of those options available on our website.

Here our ladder rack is forty-six and a half inches tall and will accommodate ladders that are up to six and a quarter inches wide. Now that we've covered some features of our ladder rack, we'll show you how to get it installed on our trailer. First thing we want to do is find out where the studs are on our trailer wall. If you look down here on the side, we have multiple rows of screws that attach the side of our trailer and these go straight into the studs on the interior wall. This is where we're going to want to attach our rails. Now we need to find a good location for them to space them properly for ladder use. We're going to have our back one here, right behind our fender and for our front here we will install it right behind where this vent is that way our ladders won't interfere with the vent.

Okay now we need to mark where we're going to drill our holes at. We'll just go right in line up against the roof line here and we'll make a mark right here in the middle and we'll do the same for our bottom bolt location. And we'll do the same for our front rail. Now we'll drill out a pilot hole where we marked. We'll go ahead and drill out our other pilot holes for the front and the rear rails. Okay with our pilot holes all made, we'll now drill them using an eleven thirty-seconds drill bit.

Now we'll take our long threaded bolt and one of our flat washers and we'll put it on. We'll take one of our wide washer plates, place it on the bolt and we'll raise it in position and go through the hole. Okay now on the inside of our trailer, we'll place on our smaller plate washer, our round washer and then our nylon lock nut. We'll do the same here for our bottom. Okay we have an extra set of hands on the outside of the trailer holding the bolt in place with a wrench while we tighten down the nut. Okay we'll do the same on the bottom one now.

All right, we'll double check our top one now to make sure it's snug. With that done, we'll repeat the same process for the front rail. Now we'll take our ladder arm, our reinforcement plate, one of our shorter bolts, slide it in position, run the bolt on through, place another bolt in, and we'll thread on our nylon lock nuts and then we'll snug our hardware on down. We'll go to the front rail and do the same at the same position. Now if you have an excessive amount of bolts sticking through on your inside wall of your trailer here, you can actually cut this off with a grinder so you can maximize the amount of room inside your trailer for storing stuff against the wall and you don't have to worry about running into it either. And we'll repeat the same process for our front rail. And that completes our look at the Pack'Em ladder rack for exterior side wall of enclosed trailers for one ladder. Part number PK-28WL-BM.

This is a very good ladder rack. It’s made of very strong steel, very sturdy. I like the bunny attachment holes that can be used for a padlock. Installation wasn’t bad, my only suggestion would be to include a few more bolts of different sizes, if it came with the right size bolt would be 5 stars,had to go to hardware store in the middle of the install to get the right size bolts. This rack will make it easy for me to bring longer ladders to the job site. I probably will buy an extra set of hooks to be able to carry 2 ladders. 726115

Outstanding quality and finish. Easy installation with 2 people. Exactly what I needed in order to carry a ladder on the side of my enclosed trailer. 629574

Worked perfectly for me, 5 X 8' enclosed trailer similar to the one in the video, mounted the hooks a little lower so that a 10' step ladder would fit and clear the fender, but still had room at the top to install a 10' piece of 4" pvc pipe to use as for conduit storage (I used 4" 2 hole straps to mount to the rack). I researched ladder racks for awhile before settling on this one and I am glad I did. The side rack is also much easier to load/unload than a rooftop model. 483776

great product but the video showed to mount bolts where the outside screws were in lines although this makes sense the outside screws did not line up with the support beams of my wells cargo trailer so drilled holes from the inside out . the bolts with the kit were way to long so purchased the correct length at the hardware store this had nothing to do with the product itself but only the installation .the product itself was fine. 472889

Great product. Installed ok. The bolts are about 4.5 inches long but only threaded for the last inch. So I had to install more plywood spacers rather than run to the store for different hardware. I have a 24' fiberglass extension ladder and it holds tight just with the included bungee cords. I recommend this product. Much easier than trying to lift that ladder on top of my trailer. 448457

I bought this for my husband to put on his enclosed trailer to haul a ladder for work and he loves it! It was easy to buy, the shipping was free and fast and to install it was a piece of cake. It seems to be really strong too and he's very excited to have it and use it. Thanks! 418316

Sturdy and easy to install.Bungy cords are a little on the small side for extention ladders and bolts are only zinc bolts so was a little concerned about rusting.I had purchased my own bolts for that reason and also because the bolts that were sent were too long. 385085

  • Easy to Use Ladder Rack Options for an Enclosed Trailer
  • I do have an easy way that will allow you to carry multiple ladders on your enclosed trailer, however, none of them mount to the roof and tilt down for loading/securing.

The Pack'Em ladder racks attach to the exterior walls of your enclosed trailer and will allow you to carry up to 2 ladders on each side of the trailer without having to climb up on the roof to secure them.

  • The Rack'em Fitz-All Enclosed Trailer Ladder Rack # RA-28 has the versatility to fit many of our trailers even though they are not enclosed. The Pack'Em Ladder Rack Bracket Kit for Enclosed Trailers # PK-28B would also work, but the sides are not as sturdy as if there were an enclosed roof frame already in place, so using these systems will have weight limits that aren't accurate for that custom application.
