Expert Answers about Tow-Rax

  • Attaching Motorcycle Wheel Chocks to Toy Hauler Floor
  • Since tie down straps like # EM34410 used with # 2S-HDLOOP handlebar loops are bearing the vast majority of the weight of the bike, attaching the wheel chock using the # TWPH2770 hardware kit is perfectly acceptable. The chock is merely helping hold the front wheel in place, the tie downs will be doing most of the work.

  • Removable Wheel Chock Recommendation for an MVP Toy Hauler Trailer and Harley Davidson Motorcycles
  • For an wheel chock that is easily removable, I recommend the Rackem chock, # RA-17. This chock has a base that mounts to the trailer floor and the chock part can easily be removed by loosening the wing nuts at the front. This chock accepts wheels up to 6-1/2 inches wide.

  • Securing a Motorcycle to a Trailer for Transport
  • I would probably use the Low Profile Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock, item # TWSPWM, along with two packs, four, Premium 6 foot x 2 inch Spring Clamp Tie Downs with Strap Trap by Master Lock, item # 3065DAT. These tie downs have a 833 pound safe load limit. A motorcycle on a trailer is subject to much more severe bouncing and jarring than one tied down in the rear of a truck, so a better tie down system is required. If you need tie down points on the trailer you could use Trailer D-Ring...

  • Can the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table be Mounted on the Outside of a Trailer
  • You could potentially install the Tow-Rax folding table, # TWSP45HFTA, to the outside of a trailer. As long as the extra 4 inches the table will add to the trailer does not exceed the legal width a trailer can be in your area AND as long as you were to add some additional security to keep it in the folded position AND as long as you used additional fasteners to hold the mounting brackets on (to account for wind when driving) then it is possible. You may need to check the laws in your...

  • Is Installation Hardware Included with Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA
  • The Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA includes the L-shaped support struts that hold the table in place and allow it to fold down when not in use. You can either do a permanent installation with fasteners you source locally or you can use the Mounting Buttons # TWSP30BK to allow for quick and easy removal and re-installation in another area, such as your garage. If you want the easiest install for two-location use you can use two sets of the mounting buttons, one in the...

  • How Far Forward Should Motorcycle Wheel Chocks Be Installed in a Utility Trailer
  • The equalizer of a tandem axle trailer is not the balance point of the trailer. I would recommend putting the wheel chocks of your trailer as far forward as you can in the trailer. This will help prevent any potential sway that can occur from not having enough tongue weight on a trailer.

  • Weight Capacity for Tow-Rax Low-Profile Floor Track for Tie-Down Anchors
  • I spoke to my contact at Tow Rax and he informed me that the O-Track part # TWSP72TA that you referenced is limited by the accessory that is used in the track. Basically it is as strong as the anchor used in it. When using the # TWSPDSTD it has a breaking strength of 5,000 lbs and a working strength of 1,666 lbs. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. Mounting hardware is not included, if you wanted to use bolts and nuts to secure the track you definitely could....

  • Do Fasteners On Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM, Need A Special Tool And Are Extra Fasteners Available
  • On the Motorcycle Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM, no special tool is needed to install the anchors to the wooden trailer floor, just a 5/16 inch Allen wrench. The anchors will be recessed into the floor, but the screws that the wheel chock attaches to are above the floor. To install, you will use the wheel chock as a template to mark where you want the holes to be drilled on the trailer floor. Then, you will drill three holes with a 7/16 inch drill bit. After the holes are drilled then you can...

  • Installation of Tow-Rax Removable Wheel Chock # TWSPWC3BT on Plywood Floor
  • The Tow-Rax Removable Wheel Chock # TWSPWC3BT can be installed on either wood or metal surfaces using the included hardware kit. You will need a drill with 7/16-inch bit for wood floors or a 9/16-inch bit for metal floors as well as a 3/16-inch bit. You will also need 5/16-inch and 3/16-inch Allen keys and a Philips screwdriver. We do not happen to have an installation video for this item but I have included a photo of the mounting hardware with dimensions added to help you determine...

  • Tow-Rax Compatiblity With Erickson O-Track System
  • The Tow-Rax system is compatible with the Erickson O-Track System and vice versa. The weight capacities/restrictions are based on the attachments themselves, so those individual capacities are what you will want to pay attention to when interchanging the products. For example the Tow-Rax Low-Profile Floor Track for Tie-Down Anchors - Aluminum - 6' Long - Machined - Qty 1, # TWSP72TA, can use an Erickson Anchor Ring for Erickson O-Track Cargo Control System, # EM59132, but you would...

  • LED Light Output Compared to Halogen for Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light # TWSPRLB2L
  • There isn't an exact comparison but generally it would take a 420 watt halogen light to achieve the same 4,500 lumens produced by Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light # TWSPRLB2L. A standard 50 watt halogen light produces around 400 to 600 lumens. In all likelihood though it would probably take less than 420 watts to produce the same amount of lumens; that is just the high end.

  • Mounting Tow-Rax Battery Box to Front Wall of Gooseneck Trailer
  • Depending on the material of the wall that you want to attach the part # TWSP14BP you could run self-tapping screws through the box and then to the trailer. Any other type of bracket would have to be made by you.

  • Folding Table Recommendation that Can Mount Onto the Side of a Travel Trailer
  • We have a folding table that our customers have mounted to the outside of an enclosed trailer. Check out the Tow-Rax folding table, # TWSP45HFTA. This table is 45-1/2" Long x 18-1/2" Wide and when folded would only add about 3 inches of width to the trailer. I attached a couple pictures of it mounted to the outside of a trailer as well as a review video for you to check out as well.

  • The Tow-Rax Removable Wheel Chock # TWSPWC3BT can be installed on either wood or metal surfaces using the hardware kit part # TWPH2770.

  • Availability of Removable Wheel Chocks For ATVs To Mount on Trailer Floor
  • The motorcycle wheel chocks we offer, such as the # TWSPWFKM are compatible with tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide, so they wouldn't be a good alternative for your ATV. We do have some alternatives that could work well for you though. The # PK-WTD from Pack'Em includes 2 chocks, the strap and mounting hardware. The chocks are permanently mounted, but they only sit about 1-5/8 inches off the floor, so they won't get in the way. Using E-Track like part # E19148 for a 5 foot length, # EM59150...

  • Sealed Battery Box with Hose for Venting Outside Recommendation
  • The battery boxes we offer like the part # TWSP12BP that you referenced aren't totally sealed, but this box does come with a hose you could use to vent it. If you wanted to seal up the holes on the sides of the box you would get exactly what you are looking for. There is a rubber seal between the lid and the top of the box.

  • Would Tow-Rax Wheel Chocks # TWSPWC Work on a 2003 Harley Superglide
  • Yes, the Tow-Rax Wheel Chocks # TWSPWC can work on tire widths that are up to 6-1/2 inches wide so yours that is right around 4 inches wide would work perfectly. I attached a review video for this chock for you to check out as well.

  • Hardware for Tow-Rax Floor Jack Mount
  • Good news, since the bracket requires you to drill your own holes wherever you may need them, the # TWSPWFKM hardware kit will work as long as you have a metal floor. You will need a drill bit to drill the initial hole, I recommend the 7/16 inch drill bit # 01933. Alternatively, if you have a wood floor on your trailer you could use the # TWSPWFKW with a 3/8 inch drill bit # 01932.

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Honda 1300 VTX
  • To haul your Honda 1300 VTX, I recommend using a utility trailer and mounting a wheel chock like part # TWSPWM to the deck. Because of the size of your bike, I do not recommend using a hitch mounted carrier. Most of the hitch mounted motorcycle carriers were designed for smaller dirt bikes and street bikes.

  • Power Source for Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light Bucket # TWSPRLB2L
  • The Tow-Rax Recessed Halogen runs on 120v AC power. The lamp is flush mounted, so it will not change the width of a trailer but a mounting hole would need to be made in the surface where you want to install the lamp.

  • Will the Tires on a 1997 Harley Davidson Fatboy Fit the Low Profile Motorcycle Wheel Chock
  • From what I was able to find it looks like the tire size on a stock 1997 Harley Fatboy is a 130/90-16. This makes it about 5-1/8 inches wide. The Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock, # TWSPWM accepts tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide. In metric tire sizes, that would be a about a 165 but no larger.

  • How Far does the Shelf Stick Out on the Tow-Rax Aluminum Storage Cabinet
  • With the shelf down, the shelf will extend 16 inches from the wall. The cabinet itself is 6 inches deep and the shelf adds 10 inches in the down position. We had this shelf in stock so I made a short video for you showing these dimensions. I also attached a dimensional photo for you.

  • Does Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Aluminum Folding Table Leave Marks on the Wall
  • My technical contact at Tow-Rax does not have any reports of the Tow-Rax Wall Mounted Folding Table # TWSP45HFTA leaving marks on walls. He also stated that these were originally intended for outdoor (i.e. garage/trailer) use which would actually be more prone to corrosion than an inside application so the chances of corrosion building up when mounted inside is very minimal. This table does have a brushed finish but it is not powder coated. This table was manufactured with the mounting...

  • Will the Motorcycle Wheel Chock Fit My 883 Harley Davidson
  • The Low Profile Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock, part number # TWSPWM, is designed for tires up to 6-1/2 inches wide and is tapered from 4 inches to 8 inches front to back. This Chock should fit your front tire and keep it from moving forward or side to side so that you can use tie downs to secure the motorcycle to the trailer.

  • Dimensions of Mounting Holes of Motorcycle Wheel Chock # TWSPWM

  • How to Carry 2 Vespa 300 Scooters with a 32ft Class C Motor Home
  • Your best option for carrying your Vespa 300 scooters with your Class C motor home is to pull a small trailer. We do not have any hitch mounted motorcycle carriers that will allow you to carry both scooters at the same time. We have everything you need to equip a simple cargo trailer for carrying both scooters. A few parts you will want to look into are wheel chocks like part # TWSPWC3BT (1 per scooter), tie down rings like part # RR05, and tie down straps, like # EM31352.

  • Options for Securing Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in Garage of Toy Hauler
  • The combination of the existing D-rings and the wheel chock that uses the # TWPH2770 mounting hardware for the # TWSPWC sounds as if it'd be an ideal solution for you. Installing the # TWPH2770 would involve drilling holes through the floor of the garage of your toy hauler, but once the mounts were installed, the chock can easily be installed and removed as needed. We don't carry the Condor chocks, but we do offer a similar chock from MaxxTow, part # MT70271, which would be a more permanent...
