Recommendations for Securing Marching Band Equipment in Enclosed Trailer  


I have a 24 foot box trailer that we used to haul marching band equipment. We are looking for a tie down solution to keep the cargo from shifting in transit. I like the this product, but Im not sure how installation will work for our application, since I dont know how the trailer was built. Id hate to drill a 4.5inch hole in the floor of the trailer, if I cant get underneath to secure the backing plate. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

Instead of securing your marching band equipment from the floor you could secure it from the wall using the Erickson Vertical E-Track # E19146. You can then use the Erickson E-Track Tie-Off w/ D-Ring # E59143 to provide tie-down attachment points or use a tie-down like the Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet # EM59136 that installs directly into the E-Track .I have also attached a link to our selection of accessories that are compatible with the E-Tracks that you can filter through.

An installation video of the Erickson Vertical E-Track # E19146 has also been attached for you to reference.

Installing anything to the floor of your trailer, like the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchors # RR6K-4 or the Erickson Horizontal E-Track # E19148, will require that a backing plate be installed underneath the trailer.

You can check your trailer for compatibility to see if the 2-1/4" bolts that come with the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchors # RR6K-4 are long enough to securely install this option on your trailer.
