Expert Answers about Tie Down Anchors


  • Mounting E-Track to 2x8 Trailer Floor Boards
  • The Buyers Products Horizontal E-Track - Gunmetal Gray Powder Coated Steel - 5' Long - Qty 1 # 3371903055 is 12 gauge steel and it can be screwed down directly to the trailer floor but won't have the same strength as if it were bolted through the floor. I recommend using wood deck screws that are 5/16 inch diameter and 1-1/2 inch length if attaching to the 2x8s. If you want a stronger connection, I recommend using the E-Track Backing Plate - Zinc Plated Steel - 6-1/2" Long x 6" Wide -...

  • Recommended Solution for Tie Downs on Floor of Suretrac Aluminum Trailer
  • I do have a solution for you, but I think welding something to the floor is going to really limit where you can place things to have them tied down. I don't think you're going to be able to get away from the issue with galvanic corrosion since most tie downs are going to be steel, you can still use a steel system on the aluminum floor as long as there is some sort of barrier between the two surfaces-rubber, plastic, wood, etc.. With all of that said, I've got 2 options for you to consider....

  • What Screws do You Recommend to Use with the CargoSmart X-Track Cargo Organizer?
  • I have a hardware solution for you. While the CargoSmart X-Track Cargo Organizer # 3481788-C does not come with screws, we do carry ones that will work great with the organizer. For wood screws, I recommend the Snap-Loc E-Track Wood Screws # SL49FR. If you are using the organizer on a metal application, I recommend the Snap-Loc E-Track Self-Drilling Metal Screws # SL99FR. Both of these parts come in sets of 20 screws.

  • Can E-Track be Installed in Car Hauler for Multiple Car Widths
  • You can install the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148 in any manner you like, so for a car hauler that has cars of different widths you can place E-track side-by-side, as you can see one of our customers did in the accompanying photo. This E-track is only 5-1/8" wide so you can install numerous different tracks to meet as many widths as possible. For additional support I do recommend using the E-Track Backing Plate # BPEZ during your install. This would be the best option and then...

  • Hardware Recommendations for Installing E-Track
  • I didn't receive your photos, but the manner in which you attach the e-track to your trailer deck will completely depend on what the deck is constructed of and where exactly on the deck you'll be placing the e-track. Without knowing any details about that, I can't provide any specifics but I can certainly provide some general advice. If the decking of the trailer is thicker than 1 inch, I'd use 1/4 x 1 inch lag screws in every 4th hole or so, but I'd highly recommend situating the e-track...

  • Is Weight Capacity of CargoSmart Horizontal or Vertical X-Track # 3481787 Same as E-Track
  • The break strength of the CargoSmart Horizontal or Vertical X-Track # 3481787 is 2,000 lbs which E-track on the other hand has a break strength of 6,000 lbs like the part # E19148. Working load limit for the E-track is 2,000 lb. The longer sections like the part # 3481788 have the same capacity as the shorter sections as well.

  • Do the Brophy Swiveling D-Rings Have Weep Holes
  • I have another solution but the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchors part # RR6K-4 do not have weep holes designed into them. I agree that they are a great idea and should have them. I have installed these in the past and drilled my own holes to ensure proper drainage I then touched up the holes with clear spray paint to help keep rust away. The other option which does have weep holes to drain water and has the same capacity but you lose the Swiveling aspect is the etrailer D-Ring Tie Down...

  • Mounting E-Track for Hauling Motorcycle on 8 x 5 Trailer
  • That's a great question. I believe your installation method for the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # EM59150 sounds like a great plan as long as you have the tracks facing the direction of travel. Basically the E-Track was designed around this and that is the most safe way to secure cargo. To secure your 900 lb bike you can either use the Erickson E-Track Tie-Off w/ D-Ring # E59143 with your current ratchet straps or you can update to the Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet # EM59136 which...

  • Availability of 2-Slot E Track Horizontal Track with Black Powder Coat Finish
  • I have a few of options for you, but this exact Erickson 2-Slot Horizontal E-Track # EM19145 isn't offered with a black powder coat finish. The Erickson Mini E-Track Plate # EM09134 is the closest option I have. It also has 2 horizontal slots and a nice matte black powder coat finish for superior corrosion resistance and adds a nice rugged look to it as well. This plate has a safe working load limit (WLL) of 800 lbs and a maximum load (break strength) of 2,400 lbs, which is much lower...

  • Can E-Track Be Used To Secure a Car in a Trailer?
  • Yes, you can use Erickson Horizontal E-Track item # E19148 as front straps to hold down a car. These tracks have a 2,000 lbs maximum capacity per track. You will want to use the etrailer E-Track Backing Plates w/ Hardware item # e96RR for mounting. The included hardware lets you mount your E-track on surfaces up to 2" thick. To strap your car down you will want to use the Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down Strap with Roller Idler and Ratchet item # EM58523.

  • Recommended Hardware for Installing E Track Onto Trailer Interior Side Walls
  • The hardware needed will depend on what surface you'll be mounting the e track to and how thick it is. We do offer 1 x 1-1/4 inch hardware for installing e track like the # 3371903055 that you'd looked at to wooden sheathing as part # SL49FR. You'll want to ensure that the thickness of the sheathing your attaching the e track to is 1 inch or more. I've linked to a help article about e-track installation that you might find useful.

  • What Does Working Load Limit Mean for E-Track
  • Good question and the 2,000 lb working load limit (WLL) of the Erickson Horizontal E-Track such as the 5 foot # E19148 is the safe limit for the weight of the cargo the track is helping secure. To simplify, it is the cargo capacity that the track can safely handle so you do not want to exceed it. However, the 2,000 lb limit is per track, so that means if you put down two tracks horizontally, your WLL would go up to 4,000 lbs. This track cannot actually be welded on, it needs to be secured...

  • Are Aluminum D-Ring Tie-Down Anchors Available

I have installed alot of these tracks and they work out really well and will not cause rusting issues.

  • Frame Mounted Forged D-Ring Tie Downs on Big Tex 70 Steel Car Trailer
  • I can absolutely help you and make a recommendation. The floor of your Big Tex 70 car trailer is an 1/8 diamond steel plate. The 1/8 plate will be fine for a tie down point for anything but a car. You need a bracket not to fasten something down tight but to keep your car from moving. The rolling resistance would be too much for an 1/8 plate but sufficient for any type of other loads, like lumber, drywall, trash, pipe etc. You're going to need to drill into the frame to safely secure mounting...

  • How Many Backing Plates Should I Use to Install E-Track on Aluminum Motorcycle Trailer
  • I typically recommend using the etrailer E-Track Backing Plate w/ Hardware - Galvanized Steel - 6" Long x 6" Wide - Qty 1 # e89RR on each end of your E-Track sections # E19148 and one in the middle for added support. With one backing plate on each end and one in the middle it will give you plenty of support to secure your motorcycle. Since this is an aluminum trailer, you'll want to use a coat of paint or some other insulating material to prevent galvanic corrosion that might occur...

For this purpose, I recommend replacing the old ones with the CargoSmart Recessed D-Ring Tie-Down Anchor - Bolt On - 3/8" x 2-1/8" # 348809. The weight capacity for a single tie-down is 1,667 pounds. Depending on your weight needs, you may need to use multiple D-rings....

If you measure again (sand down if necessary), you probably actually have the standard 3-1/2" by 1-1/2" opening and not 3-1/2" by 1-3/8", in which case this would work well for you. For a spare tire carrier that would fit the standard 3-1/2" by 1-1/2" stake pockets we have the Buyers Products Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier # 3375201012 or the Brophy Trailer Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier - Black Powder Coat # SPTC.

  • Recommendations for Attaching E-Track to Floor of Aluminum Trailer
  • I'd recommend through bolting the e-track into the available cross members under the trailer floor. You'll want to fasten the e-track to the floor in between those points, but the fasteners you'd use and how many of them will depend on the structure of the floor. If you're talking a wood plank floor, you have plenty of floor structure for the fasteners to bite into, so attaching the track every foot or so would be fine. If the floor is thinner metal, you'll want to use self tapping screws...

  • I have found the galvanized coating on the etrailer Horizontal E-Track # e95VR will hold up to rust and corrosion better than the zinc coated Erickson Horizontal E-Track # EM19147 that you were looking at. The galvanizing process leaves a thicker coating as compared to zinc coatings. This will allow for it not to wear off as quickly. I recommend using the Erickson E-Track Tie-Down Kit # EM58523-09162-4 for securing your vehicles when using the E-Track. This kit will give you 2 wheel...

  • Compatibility and Weight Capacity of O-Track Systems
  • We have previously tested the Erickson and Tow-Rax O-Track Systems and found them to be compatible with each other. I went out to our warehouse to test the Erickson Anchor Ring # EM59132 on the Buyers Product Super Track # 337ST93 and found it to be compatible as well. This means the O-Track components from all three of the manufacturers you mentioned are indeed interchangeable and will work well each other.

  • Can the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Tie Downs Be Used To Secure a 5,000 Lb Vehicle with Backing Plate
  • The Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Tie Down Anchor part # RR06 with the Backing Plate for RR06 Recessed Swivel D-Ring Tie Down part # BP06 are a great, easy to install set of tie-downs which can be used for securing a vehicle. The tie-downs themselves have a 2,000 lb working load limit. That said, you will be limited by the attachment point if lower. It would be very difficult for me to give a definitive answer of the weight capacity limits of your floor so for this I must recommend you reach...

  • Recommended Stake Pocket Tie Downs For 1992 Ford F-150
  • I have another option but the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for Truck Bed Stake Pockets # 917-850760 you referenced are not confirmed to fit the stake pockets of your 1992 Ford F-150. I recommend the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085 as a customer was able to install them on his 1992 Ford F-150 with minor trimming to the anchor base plate. I included the picture of the Erickson # EM09085 installed on the customers 1992 F-150 for you to take a look at.

  • Could U-Bolts Be Used to Install E-Track
  • We don't have U-bolts specifically designed for attaching the E-track, but we do carry a backing plate part # e96RR that does add some reinforcement for securing the tracks. 4 inch u-bolts could be used like you mentioned but you would need to source them elsewhere as we do not carry them. I recommend using screws, lock washers and nuts to make sure each connection is as solid as possible with the backing plate.

  • Stake Pocket D-Ring Anchors For 2"x4" Stakes Or 3" Tapered Stake Pockets
  • For the Rack'em Heavy Duty Stake Pocket # PK-BSP you will need to use a stake pocket anchor that is specifically designed to work with the 3" tapered pocket. The Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # PK-SPTD will work with that size pocket.

  • E-Track and D-Ring Recommendation for Securing Cargo in Enclosed Trailer
  • I'd install e-track on the walls of the trailer so that you could use e-track tie down anchors like part # 59131 and/or e-track ratchet straps like part # EM59136. The e-tracks give you tons of flexibility in how to strap everything down since the anchors can easily be moved as needed. For e-track then you can use the Vertical E-Track # E19146 mounted throughout your trailer using self-tapping screws. I attached an install video on how to install the tracks as well.

  • Can E-Track be Mounted Perpendicular to UTV
  • That's a good question and we have had a number of people wanting to do the same thing, but e-track does need to be mounted parallel to your UTV, in the direction of travel. Wheel straps pulling to the side, opposite the direction of travel, can put undue stress on the straps with what is essentially a moving load. So what you will want is horizontal e-track with wheel straps: - Erickson Horizontal E-Track - 4 Feet # EM19147 or 5 Feet # E19148 - Erickson E-Track Wheel Tie-Down...

  • How To Snap Rings Of Buyers Products Super Tracks Into Place

Depress the gold cylinder of the ring while the silver piece is horizontal put the gold piece into the circular cut outs of the track. Then slid the whole thing down into the space that is between the circles that sort of look like tabs. Then turn the silver...

  • Can I Mount Multiple Pieces Of E-track To Make An 18 Feet Strip
  • If you need 18 feet of E-track I recommend using 2 pieces of 8 feet Horizontal E-track part # E19135 and 1 piece of 2 feet E-Track part # EM59150. 8 feet is the longest Horizontal E-Track available. The E-track pieces are not designed to be mounted properly while overlapped with one another. I recommend cutting one of the tracks down with a saw or cutting wheel if the piece is too long to mount onto the wall stud. A lot of customers also attach thicker plywood to the wall studs where...

The hole opening will accept a 1/4" countersunk screw and I recommend using a stainless steel screw for mounting on your aluminum trailer. The length will depend on your particular trailer and how thick the floor is and if you tie into the aluminum beams with any of the screw holes. This will vary based on your spacing of the aluminum beams. You will...

  • Is There a Backing Plate for the Erickson Mini E-Track Plate and What Size Bolts Should Be Used
  • It is not required to use a backing plate with the Erickson Mini E-Track Plate part # EM09134 but if you want to use one, that is perfectly fine you'd just need to make your own as we do not offer one for this. In regards to hardware, I'd suggest some grade 5 5/16" or 3/8" hex bolts 1-1/2" or 1-3/4" long should be fine depending on the thickness of the backing plate.

  • Are E-Tracks that are Zinc Coated Steel Resistant to Rust
  • Zinc coated steel is the only e-tracks we carry, like part # E19148. Unfortunately, we don't carry stainless steel. However, the zinc coating is designed to resist rust and corrosion as well. And these have been used on trailers that leave them exposed the elements and they still get great reviews
