Video Transcript for Pack Em Ladder Rack Installation

Today in our trailer we'll be having a look at the Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Wall of Enclosed Trailers, part number PK-28WL2-BM. All right, here's what our ladder rack looks like when we have two ladders installed on it. As you see, we're using step ladders and we alternated them, so we could actually clear both our ladders over our fender properly. 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 this kit's designed to store up to two ladders on the outside of your trailer. Right now we just have the one installed with the one set of arms. Now, you can adjust how your ladders are stored on the rails at various heights depending on the size of your ladder or the shape.

You can go up higher if you need to, or down lower if you need to. Now for convenience, our ladder rack comes with eight bungee cords in order to secure the ladders to the rack. We have four 12" ones, and four 18" ones. Now, for added security and to help prevent theft of your ladders when 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. Now one of the great features about this is our ladder is easily removable.

We just undo our bungee cords. Here our ladder rack is 46-1/2" tall, and will accommodate ladders that are up to 6-1/4" wide. Now our ladder rack is also available as a single kit to hold a single ladder. So basically it'll be like what we have on the trailer already right now. Only difference being, you won't get your second pair of legs to rest your ladder onto. Your bungee cords, instead of having four of the 12" and four of the 18", you'll have two of each. Now that we've gone over 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 to the side of our trailer. 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 our ladder use.

We're going to have our back one here, right behind our fender. For our front one here, we will install it right behind where this vent is. That way our ladders won't interfere with the vent. Now we need to mark where we're going to draw our holes at. We'll just get it right in line, up against the roof line here, and we'll make a mark right here in the middle. We'll do the same for our bottom bolt location. We'll do the same for our front rail. Now we'll draw out a pilot hole where we marked. Okay, we'll go ahead and draw the other pilot holes for the front and the rear rails. With our pilot holes all made, we'll now drill them out using an 11/32 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 then we'll raise it in position and go through the hole. Now on the inside of our trailer, we'll place on our smaller plate washer, a round washer, and then our nylon lock nut. We'll do the same here for our bottom. 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. We'll do the same on the bottom one now. We'll double check our top one now and make sure its snug. With that done, we'll repeat the same process for the front row. Now we'll take our lateral 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. All right, now if you have an excessive amount of bolt 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. You don't have to worry about running into it either. I'll repeat the same process for our front rail. That completes our look at the Pack'Em Ladder Rack for Exterior Side Walls of Enclosed Trailers, part number PK-28WL2-BM.

Product arrived on time. Good packaging. Directions were clear and they installed quick. Only issue was length of bolts supplied for rails for enclosed trailer are too long. Had to go buy four 3” bolts then went right together. I don’t like the play in bolts supplied to mount racks to the rail. I’ll be changing them so they can’t move around as much. 558014

I always had a roof mounted ladder rack that was something of a pain for me to get our ladders on and off of, none of my employees could ever do it right and they would also end up smashing the lights at the top of the trailer eventually with the ladder. When I got a new trailer last year I purchased the side mounted ladder racks and I’m super super happy with them. Very easy to get ladders on and off, I typically use two people. They are extremely sturdy in their mounting. They do have rubber caps on the top of the vertical members, one of them has come off and now rain is going in that, minimal rust staining. But still very good quality on the metal. You do end up scratching the sides of your trailer with the ladder but it’s minor and cosmetic only, not functional damage like hitting my rear lights. 698336

Very nice rack, a breeze to install even by myself. Good quality. I am ordering another set for the other side of my trailer to haul the step ladders. 667463



- PK-28WL2-BM

Overall quality of construction is sound and the basic design works well, but the hooks are not wide enough for double sided fiberglass ladders at their hinge end; kind of a big deal in the current ladder market. Also, the bungies supplied with the rack are of poor quality and cannot be relied upon; I use cargo ratchet straps. Saved a lot of space inside my work trailer and very roadworthy, but, I repeat, the hooks need to be 3-4 inches wider. 646375


Comments
I would bump that up to 4 stars if I could. The racks held up really well over thousands of miles including so off road. Again, I would say that the hooks need to be wider, maybe 3 to 4 inches, but overall they have worked well and would highly recommend them.
