Installation

This sturdy, steel rack mounts securely to the bottom rail of your open utility trailer. Just line the towers up, approximately 3 feet apart, to determine where on your trailer you will need to drill. Then attach the pre-drilled towers with Grade-8 bolts (not included). This rack system is not designed to be welded to your trailer.


Be sure to face the rack toward the outside of the trailer for easy access to your trimmers. This configuration also leaves the bed of your trailer open for lawn mowers or other landscaping equipment.

To use the rack, simply place your trimmers or Weedeaters horizontally in the hooks. The hooks of one of the towers have integrated steel hasps. The steel hasps are designed to open a full 90-degrees for easy access. To secure your trimmers to the rack, just fold the hasps over each trimmer and lock in place with the included padlocks.

Video Transcript for PackEm Trimmer Rack Review

Today on this utility trailer, we're going to install part number PK-6. This is a Pack'Em Trimmer Rack for open utility trailers. First thing we're going to do is go ahead and find a place for a rack. Typically you're going to install this on curbside, but in this case our curbside of a trailer, the rails are removable, so it's not a good location. We're going to put ours on the driver's side. Typically you want to space this out about 36 inches like we have marked out here. We've put a couple marks on top of our rail 3 foot apart.

Let's go ahead and hold it up to our marks and we'll see if we can work with the pre-drilled holes. Our top one will be okay but our bottom one needs to go lower a little bit so we'll have to notch out the wood to make it foot. We'll go ahead and notch out the bed here and we're just using a wood chisel. Once we have our rack set at the depth that we want, we'll go ahead and clamp it in place. Then we'll use the rack itself as a template to drill out our holes. Now in some cases you may end up where the hole is going to not line up with the steel no matter what you do so you're going to be doing some drilling anyway so don't be afraid to drill into the rack and to the steel of your trailer. Now we'll go ahead and install our hardware.

Our holes are set up to use 3/8-inch hardware. The instructions state you want to use a grade A nut and bolt. Okay, we've got one side installed, let's go ahead and do the same thing to the other half. Weve got the rack installed, let's go ahead and try it out. We'll go ahead and take our trimmer and put it into the rack.

Once we have it in place we can go ahead and put the latch on and install the locks that come with the kit. So now our trimmer is secure and ready to go down the road. That will finish it for part number PK-6 from Pack'Em on this utility trailer. .

Im The owner of a professional lawn and landscape service and was looking for something inexpensive at first when I began my venture into the lawn care industry full time. Might I say, these are great for the money and I couldn't be any more pleased with what I was given. They hold my seedeaters well and they don't bounce out. They are what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less. The only downside is the locks that are given with the product, which after about one rain, rusted up and were no usable for much longer because the insides wouldn't shift all the way to get the key in in order to unlock the locks from the racks. 340670

After receiving the product I looked at the installation and decided to improve on the installation because 1 bolt does not do enough to secure the system to the trailer. I installed 4 inch U bolts to the risers and secured the system onto my trailer. I will install additional u bolts tomorrow to ensure that they don't move. I will remove them and place them on my new trailer when I purchase it. I will purchase additional products to secure my equipment to my trailer in the near future from etrailer. 211515

I recently installed this product. There was not any hardware and basic instructions; but sufficient for the job. Overall i would rate this product a 7. The metal is a little thin but it will do the job. The included locks were a bonus i thought, but really appear to be vunerable to a heavy screwdriver. BUT for the price, i am pleased. It will slow a theif down 100136


Comments

The rack has held up great. I recently moved to an enclosed trailer that had its own racks but the pacem rack has held up great. Would defiantly defiantly reccomend this product to anyone just starting out.

Went on easy, well made, low cost, the padlocks are junk just buy a master lock set keyed alike. I read some reviews and people say they have to take all the trimmers off to remove just 1 trimmer, This rack is made for the passenger side with the trimmer head to the rear of the trailer, If you want it on the drivers side the trimmer head will point to the front of the trailer, Install it right and you will have NO problems at all. It works great and looks great. 185819

These were a bit of a puzzle to install on my Carry-On 5x8SPW (Tractor Supply branded) and required some effort to get done, but turned out nice. My life was saved by some anodized black braces I found at True Value (see photos). The best ones were 7.5 x 1.5 x 1/8 and fit inside the uprights to form a foot. The photo also shows how we had to cut a notch in the E-track to accomodate the foot. For attaching to the rail I used the 2.4 x 3 x 1/8 braces since there weren't enough of the other in stock. Both of these braces were also available in a heavier gauge. My electric trimmers were awkward to fit in and I was concerned my employees would break things trying to get it right so I added some yellow nylon loops from a muck bucket to grip the handle end (wrapped around the handle, then the two loops held by the latching side of the rack) and that has worked great. I have more photos but was only able to figure out how to upload one. 276342


Comments

This is still working great a year later. Although I bought the locks with it I ended up using a bright orange carabiner to secure each one instead. The trailer is stored inside when people arent using it so that was the best compromise between security and practicality.

After reading previous reviews was concerned about the trimmers being too close to one another and having to remove the one above it each time. But get the feeling that they built these using equipment very similar to what I'm using. The fit is snug, not too loose nor too tight. Just about right. Also has a clean finish. Nice touch with the locks, although very little security it does offer a small degree of deterrence. The locks are more like keepers then anything else. 133409

Do you really have to remove all trimmers to take one off?

Hi JakeSorry about the confusion. No it works fine. I can take any off and put on without trouble. The fit is just right. .

Are the trimmers loose and able to spin around when in the rack or are they tight to where they can not spin around and move?

Locks don't seem to be great, and the "pre-drilled" mounting holes are not measured off a standard 1' side rail unfortunately.. they do seem tone of good quality and I was supprised to see it came with a line spool holder 433755

Simple installation. Sturdy. The only issue I have is that the three mounts are a little close together. I can hang three tools from the rack but have to stagger them a little left to right to be able to get them on and off. 424002

Drilled 4 holes, took 40 minutes to align and drill holes. Used two 3/8" x 5" long bolts and two 3/8" x 4" bolts. See picture. I wanted to place in front for easy access to the sides of the trailer. Thanks for the gifts. 417393

This is the 3rd set of racks I have bought, even tho they changed the locks from the old style, the new locks STILL suck. but I did not buy this for the locks, the racks are great quality and they added foam so your trimmers fit nice and snug. 335535

Great product, nice addition to my equipment trailer. Helps keep equipment organized and out of bed of my truck. Only complaint is the locks are a little cheesy. Price was great and delivery was fast . Easy to install. 334101

Trimmer storage brackets are great, once you install them on your trailer you will probably wonder why you didn’t get them sooner. Great addition to my lawn equipment trailer.

Purchased another trailer needed racks for trimmer/edger. This one works great. I have two foot mesh sides so had to adjust the placement some to work for my trailer. Supply your own nuts, washers and bolt - I used 1.5 length and they worked fine. Supplied locks are okay you may want others. Overall a great rack for the price. 314650

rack works as advertised. The only thing I would add is some foam rubber to hold the tools a bit more securely. Other than that, it does the job great. Cheap, efficient way to secure trimmers. 284132

These racks are awesome for the price. The rack is designed to mount on the curb side, motor towards the truck. That allows each trimmer to be removed individually. If you mount it on the street side(drivers side) the angles are all wrong and you have to remove the trimmer above it to get the lower one out. Installed on the curb side, you place the trimmer in the rack, head above motor at about a 40* angle, rotate motor end over the clasp and it slips right in. On Street side, the MOTOR must be above the HEAD to get the head in the rack, and it interferes with the trimmer mounted above it. As for spinning in the rack,my Echo with the New-type handles (rubber over plastic and the solid safety trigger, not the open paddle) they do not rotate at all. The handle fits perfectly in the clasp and the trimmer sits rotated to about 2 o clock. On a side note, this is a perfect position to fill fuel on the Echo trimmers as the cap is straight up and not at an angle like if you fill on the ground. I can see adding some strips of innertube on the clasp end to prevent any scratching, if that thing bothers you. The finish on the rack is second to none. It is a VERY tough hammered type finish that has handled 3 sharp-edged heavy American brand locks banging against it for 2 weeks on washboard-pothole-filled-northeast roads and hasn't shown a scratch. The pre-drilled mounting holes are nice, if you can use them. I couldn't use the top hole as it interfered with my top rail, so I drilled another hole about an inch lower on it..... IF you HAVE to drill a hole, use a NEW bit, LOTS of lubrication and the right Speed for that bit. I used a BRAND NEW Irwin brand metal cutting bit and it had a hard time. The steel they use is not your typical chinese steel. It is some tough stuff, but I'd assume it has to be with the forces acting on it. Like said in other reviews, use Grade 8 hardware, not stainless. The forces on the rack are HUGE when fully loaded(although it handles it fine) and the weakest link WILL be your hardware mounting to the trailer. Use Stover-type locking nuts and grade 8 bolts and washers, not whatever happens to be in your bolt bucket. All in all, you can buy one of those other "namebrand" overpriced racks with locking blocks that mount to your trimmer and sealed hardened complex locking mechs....that you have to buy an extra part to keep your trimmer motor from breaking off.......Or you can spend 1/3 of that, buy this rack and add another trimmer to your fleet with the savings. Or take the wife out to dinner and dancing. That's probably the better choice. :) 267879

The product is solid and easy to install. The only thing I changed was the locks. The locks that are provided are very cheap and a real hassle, as cheap locks usually are. So I give it an excellent rating because the main product does work very well and is built sturdy. My only suggestion is that the part that holds the grip side should have rubber on it, or something that would not allow the item to rotate so much will driving around. My trimmer usually ends up on its side or completely upside down. 260152
