Will the E-Track Backing Plate Part BPEZ fit with Erickson Horizontal E-Track Part E19148 or E19135

Question:

Looking at doing my trailer with E track tie downs. I was looking at your 5foot and 8foot tracks E19148 and E19135. My question is will the backing plates BPEZ work with this track? E19149 list distance between holes at 4 1/2inch and BPEZ lists distance between holes at 4 5/8. but your pictures show that the holes line up?

Expert Reply:

The Erickson horizontal E-tracks # E19148 and # E19135 will both have 2-inch mounting hole spacing and will work with the Brophy E-track backing plate # BPEZ.

I went to our warehouse to measure the backing plate with the E-tracks and they will fit just fine. The width center eye to eye is 4-1/2 inches and the length center eye to eye is 4-inches. The holes in the backing plate are only 1/16 of an inch larger than 4-1/2 inches, and the minimal difference is not enough to prevent a screw from running through both holes.

I also added a diagram for you to view along with a couple video reviews.
