How To Install The Brophy Trailer D-Ring Tie Down, # RR5K, On A Wood Trailer Floor


Do you have illustrations on How to install it on wood trailer floor with or without underlying steel frame members ?


Expert Reply:

You can attach the Brophy Recessed Trailer D-Ring Tie Down with Backing Plate, # RR5K, most anywhere on a trailer. The recessed D-Ring is designed to be recessed in a wood surface (floor, wall) and using the steel backing plate will make a stronger tie down point.

To be able to recess the tie down ring in the wood you will have to drill a 3-1/4 inch hole in the wood and then, using the backing plate as a template, drill the 4 holes for the mounting bolts. Then, with the steel backing plate over the hole and the mounting holes lined up you can attach everything with the included nuts and bolts.

You will need to locate the tie downs on your wood floor so you will not be drilling into the steel frame when drilling the large 3-1/4 inch hole for the tie down ring to sit in.

I do not have any instructions or illustrations that show how to install the Brophy tie-down and backing plate.
