Using E-Track and # 59149 Wood Beam Sockets to Construct Shelves in Enclosed Trailer


Do you have a E-track wood beam socket for the horizontal E-track system. I see the one for the vertical system but would like to use a section horizontally and be able to use a standard 2 X 4 across the trailer walls. This would hopefully hold the wood by 2inch horiz and 4inch vertical. THis would reduce the bowing of the wood. We are trying to have removable 2 X 4s across the trailer for our school band equipment utilizing a second shelf.

The Erickson # 59149 Wood Beam Socket you mentioned is the only product of its type that we offer.

We do not offer a socket that would hold the beam in the way you describe.

If you ran short lengths of e-track like # EM59150 on the trailer side walls near the front wall of the trailer, you could use the sockets holding the 2x4s on end going across the front wall of the trailer, but we have nothing that would allow you to run them along the side walls of the trailer. Vertical E-track like part # E19146 is also available.

I have produced a diagram that shows what I described above.
