Installing a Load Stop at Rear of 4 x 8 Foot Trailer


I loaded lumber on my trailer and there was no stop on the end of the trailer to keep the lumber from sliding out the end. A flat e track on the end of bed would work if I could slide a 2 x 4 on the end. Is there such a thing? There are no sides it is all flat.

I have a solution that should work pretty well for you. I'd run a strip of E-track like # E19148 along the edges of the trailer, at least at the front and rear of the trailer.

The E-track could be used to secure the lumber using a ratchet strap like # SLLS28RER. The straps are sold individually, so you'd want at least two. At the end of the E-Track, you could use a wood beam socket like # 59149 to secure a board like you have shown in the photo. The sockets are sold individually.
