I have a 14 foot flat roof trailer, and live in New England where snow gets wet ad heavy. I searched the internet for solutions, but nothing available. So I used your x-track vertical and e-track wood beam sockets to build an internal ceiling support system to prevent the roof from sagging under the weight of snow. After spending much time looking for solutions on the web, and coming up empty, this simple solution occurred to me.


I received the products just as described it too about 4 working days.
I plan on building shelves into my enclosed trailer for camping gear.

Brad B.


Great 2x4 mount they are low cost and work well.


Haven't used them yet, I'll get back to you in a few days.
I have finished my project with the e-track 2x4 holders. I installed a shelf in the front of my race trailer. The holders fit the e-track a little sloppy, but that was not an issue for me as I have everything tied together. The brackets could be a little narrower. I had to shim the 2" width to make the wood fit snugly.
Pictures attached ,use them if you want.


Not only simplifies adding shelving, but makes the completed shelves removable, and adjustable. I only had about 13 inches to work with in my utility trailer, but I was able to get everything off the floor. (Also used vertical E-track.)


Worked perfectly. Used for a cross country move. Built a platform inside the trailer for all of the lighter weight and delicate items.


Product came in earlier than estimated and in great shape. Here are my 2x4 brackets installed in my trailer. Will put boards on top of the 2x4's and have a shelf for boxes when moving.


Is the only practical way to create part of the horizontal support frame for a sleeping platform in the trailer. Works fine for this use.


Worked absolutely perfect to secure motorcycle front wheel chocks in my vintage '84 toy hauler. Using three lengthwise rows of your E-Track, these brackets allow me a flexible removable system to carry one or two various motorcycles on either side of the little 8' wide hauler. Thanks for your selection of great stuff, and your excellent prompt service.


Good item. Helped with a bed I installed in my trailer.


Used these to build 3 removable and adjustable shelves into the front of my enclosed trailer.


As requested, here are some pics of my e-track installation. I find the raised e-tracks in the floor very problematic and dangerous so I made sure they were recessed. This is now an extremely versatile cargo trailer.


OMG!!! I LOVE these!! All types of movable shelving is possible with these brackets!!


I think these are excellent products. I created a tire rack in my car trailer by installing E- track, supplied from E-trailer as well, on both sides of my trailer at a height equal to the height of my track car tires +3" from the top of the trailer. My car's hood actually goes right under near the tire rack and shelves. These E-Track Wood Beam snap into the E-track. I bought 2 - 2"X4"X8' pieces of wood for every beam I installed into the E-track across the trailer. For 6 beams, I need 12-2"x4"x8's of wood. I doubled every beam with 2-2"x4"x8' for strength. To do this, I used 2-1/2" coated deck screws and screwed them together. On both ends, where the 2"x4"x8's rest in these E-track Sockets, I separated the beams with the use of 2 washers per screw. That allows one 2"x4"x8" to slide down and rest in the E-Track Wood Beam Socket. I drilled holes in the beams to match up with the oval shaped holes, and then thru bolted the beams into these E-Track Socket brackets, so that the wood beams are secured in the brackets.

The total cost for each beam is approximately $15.00 vs. buying a pre-made AL E-Track beam for app $100. I'm using 6 beams for my needs. 2 beams for the tire rack, and 4 beams to create 2 shelf units. The shelf units will require a sheet of 1" 4'x8' plywood, which I will cut into 2-2'x8' sheets, and screw into the bottoms of the beams with cut outs to go around the E-Track Sockets, to create the shelves. Pretty easy, and pretty cost effective. The trick to this project is taking time to install the E-Track correctly at the correct height, and even as measured side by side. I "measured twice, and drilled once" when installing the E-Track. It's not rocket science, but take your time with it, double check the mounting points, the height, and position, and you'll be very happy with the project.

As always, buying all the material from E-Track helped make this project a snap and saved some serious money over the AL E-Track beams!

Jim M.


Everything has worked out perfectly. A beam solution using these e-Track beam brackets designed for wood 2x4s weighs more than an aluminum beam, but it cost less than 110th the price! I built 6 beams, so I saved $500 ! It is worth doing this solution!


I used them to make shelves in V of the trailer and it's working great


Was looking for an way to add removable and moveable shelving to my enclosed trailer. These are super quality


I used these to build a bunk and shelf unit in my Sprinter van. As I’m a rather big and tall guy I was a little nervous the first time I climbed into the bunk. Between the etrack and these 2x4 supports gave me a great night sleep. For the bunk and later the shelf I used 4 etracks and 4 of these 2x4 supports, and two 6’ 2x4s and a plywood base at 3/4” thick. After I tied everything in the supports were all strong and solid. I could turn over on my side and never felt any rocking motion or unsteadiness. I highly recommend the etrack and the portable 2x4 etrack hangers.

George N.


The project worked out very well for about six months. But since then Imhave remodeled my van and built a bunk with storage. I saved the etrack wood beam sockets just in case I come up with another idea for them. They worked great and I’m happy that I kept them.


Excellent product. I purchased 4 of them in a previous order and they worked so well that I decided I needed more. I installed the E- Track system in my cargo trailer and this item makes it extremely simple to mount temporary partitions in the trailer which take only seconds to move or remove. They can also be used to make a temporary shelf and probably other purposes as well.

John S.


One year later, these items still perform flawlessly. From securing items in place to using them for movable partitions this product is outstanding...


I used these moveable brackets to hold a shelving unit I made for my utility trailer. With them installed I have a ton of storage and when removed I can fit two ATV's inside. Very versatile.

Mike W.


Still a solid product that made my trailer extremely versatile. Great company to do business with.


Modified this cargo trailer to haul RC airplanes(too big to fit in my pickup) and remove the upper deck to make it useful for hauling other items. This makes a truly utility cargo trailer. Numerous tie downs with Etrack is really great. I have other pics if your interested. I just purchased an enclosed car hauler and I plan on installing Etrack in it. Thanks for making great products !


If I could give this 10 stars, I would. I'm a High School Band Director who uses a trailer to get instruments from performance venue to school and back. My previous trailer didn't have any E-track hardware and I just did the best we could. There was always a great deal of shifting of equipment during transport. Now that my current trailer has E-track hardware, I can secure all of my equipment easily and quickly reorganize the entire trailer according to the job's requirements. If you've not got E-track, get it. It's more than worth it's cost in saving of time and convenience.


This product does exactly what it is supposed to do. It locks easily into E-Track, and holds a 2" board. The company that I work for uses about 100 a year, and we have not had any problems.

Bill D.


It is a good product that does what it was designed to do. No complaints.


makes it very easy to mount a shelf in your trailer. i used it for a shelf in the front of my cargo trailer to hold motorcycle helmets, boots and riding gear. i cut a 4' e-track in half and backed the e-track with 3/4 plywood on each side of the trailer for support. in cut the 2 X 4 to length and then used a 2" wide strip of 3/4 plywood as a cleat that attached to the front of the trailer. cut the plywood shelf to fit and you have a sturdy shelf that sits over the front of your motorcycle. you can include vertical pieces of plywood for dividers and a 6 inch piece of 3/8 plywood to cover the ugly 2 X 4 and give yourself a 2" lip to help keep things in place.


offers GREAT flexibility in my Cargo trailer, shelves can easily be moved.

Only improvement would be to enlarge the front holes to accept a tie-down hook, or S-hook, that way i don't have to change out to a O-ring as often.


The E Track 2x4 fasteners worked very well with the Vertical E Track in my new 6 x 12 enclosed cargo trailer. They are simple to install on the end of your 2 x 4 lumber and hold in place any shelves mounted on them. The locking pins insure they will not come out while in motion.


I purchased these beam sockets to go with the vertical E-Track system.
Another great product. Strong,easy to adjust,fits a 2x4 stud of your choice.
After installing my complete system I jumped,layed,and climed on unit and was impressed.
Unit showed no signs of stress .....I'm 6'1 and weigh 255 lbs.
This system will hold up to just about anything you throw at it.
Purchase the E-Track and beam sockets without won't be sorry!

  • Why Doesn't E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 Have Weight Capacity
    The E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 that you referenced doesn't have a capacity listed for it because the wood installed in it would break long before it would. Using it with angle iron instead of wood like it was intended for would make it really hard to give a stated capacity.

  • Can Beam Bracket 59149 Be Used to Make a Tailgate on a Trailer
    In order to accomplish what you want to do there isn't a better product than the E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149. Of course you would need two of them. You wouldn't want to make the tailgate too tall either since it would only be supported at the floor of the trailer.

    I went out to the warehouse and pulled the E-Track Wood Beam Socket, # 59149, and I produced a short video showing the dimensions of the E-Track Wood Beam Socket and took some close up video so you can see how the wood beam socket works. There are 4 holes in the socket for attachment to 2X lumber. The two holes on the bottom are centered and positioned at 1/2 inch and 1-3/4 inches in from the inside of the bracket. The two holes in each side of the bracket are positioned at 1-1/8 inch...

  • If Wood is Secured to E-Track Bracket # 59149 Can Board be Removed as One Piece
    Since the bracket part # 59149 has to be angled into the E-track to install there wouldn't be a way to pull the board and bracket out of a track as one piece since the board would prevent you from getting the right angle.

  • How to Size 2 x 4s for Use with Erickson E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149
    You ask a good question. The Erickson E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 fits in their E-Track (and in other similar cargo control tracks) such that about 1/4- to 1/2-inch of the space between the tracks themselves will be taken up by the socket connection point on each end. This can vary slightly depending on the age, degree of use and brand of the track and socket. So, in other words size your 2 x 4s to allow for about 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch less total length than there is between the tracks. Ideally...

  • Mounting E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 Upside-Down
    The E-Track Wood Beam Socket you mention, part # 59149 can be mounted in any orientation you wish.As you can see in the photo I provided, the slots in the E-Track measure 2 inches apart on center. Moving from one slot to the next would provide 2 inches of adjustment. There is a small amount of side-to-side movement once the beam socket is connected to the E-Track.

  • Installing the E-Track Wood Beam Socket For Standard Lumber
    Once the E-Track Wood Beam Socket for Standard 2" Lumber - Qty 1 # 59149 has a beam screwed in at both ends, it cannot be removed without unscrewing the wood beam. The beam would need to be lifted straight up and out of the hanger to allow movement and then be screwed back in place in its new location. You will be able to use the same piece of lumber cut to width over and over again, but it will need to be removed to change location of the hangers in the track.

  • How to Mount E-Track To Inside of Box Truck
    The box should have metal studs on the interior, along with wood 'rub strips' that run horizontally a couple feet up above the floor. Those wooden cross members that are attached to the metal studs provide an ideal mounting point for the e-track. If there is no wooden strip, the e-track can attach directly to the metal studs.

  • How Much Weight Can the E-Tracks Hold Attached To Plywood
    Yes, you can use wood screws to secure the e-tracks to the plywood walls in your trailer. However, as you mentioned the weight capacity would be less than if you were to attach them to metal beams. The tracks themselves can handle up to 2,000 lbs but the weight capacity of the system is always going to be limited to how they are attached. Unfortunately, there would be no way to give you specific figures or ratings when attached to plywood as there are just too many factors involved such...

  • Can Horizontal E-Tracks be Used with Erickson Wood Beam Sockets # 59149
    You can absolutely use the Horizontal E-Tracks # EM59150 that you referenced in your enclosed trailer with 4 of the Wood Beam Sockets # 59149 to create a shelf. There isn't any structural benefit to using vertical E-tracks for this application over the horizontal tracks you are wanting to use. Vertical mount tracks would just allow for a bit more versatility as you could lower or raise the shelf if desired (but in your setup you could move it forward or back). The holes on the brackets...

  • Does the E-Track Wood Beam Socket # 59149 Have a Weight Capacity

  • Recommended Crossbars for Open Wood Framed Trailer to Carry Kayaks
    The E-Track Wood Beam Socket for Standard 2" Lumber # 59149 will most likely work with metal tubes as crossbars as long as they are screwed into place in the same way as the wood is intended to be attached. You will need to determine the correct weight capacity for your custom application. Since you are looking to add kayaks to an open wood framed trailer, I recommend the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers - 250 lbs # MPG493.

    I do believe your walls have vertical tracks which is what you see the rub rails on the outside of the truck attached to along with the mounting holes on the inside which are securing the 2x4 boards on the inside. The etrailer Horizontal E-Track # e62VR depending on the loads you are securing to the walls may require additional fasteners to not cause any issues. You may need to attach some 2x6 or 2x8 lumber to the side walls before attaching the E-Track to have sufficient mounts along the...

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.
