What Type of Hardware Should be Used to Install RackEm Trimmer Rack to 2x4s in an Enclosed Trailer


what size self tapping screw do you use to go threw the 2 x 4 into the steel frame?


Expert Reply:

The hardware would not have to go all the way into the frame when installing trimmer rack # RA-5. Since it is meant to hold 3 trimmers the weight of the rack and trimmers would not necessitate an installation through the 2x4s and into the frame.

So you would only need some 3/8 wood screws that are slightly less long than the 2x4 is thick. A lumber industry standard 2x4 apparently is not exactly 2 inches by 4 inches but 1-1/2 by 3-1/2 (or close to it). So 1 inch long screws would work.
