Installation Tips for E-Track Trailer Cargo Control, # E19148


The mounting instructions that came with the track are vague at best. Do i need to bolt it down at every hole with a 5k rated bolt or can i go 4 holes to every 5k rated bolt. that gives me 8 down each side evenly spaced at 4 holes.


Expert Reply:

Determining the mounting locations of your E-Track, part # E19148, will depend on the construction of your trailer and personal preference. If you are mounting the E-Track on the bed of your trailer, to tie down a car or similar item, you will need to determine the best position for the vehicle or item and the best situation for installing the E-Track.

You may need to install bracing under the bed of the trailer to get enough mounting points for a secure installation. It sounds as if you have a good plan with bolts placed in every fourth or fifth hole. When a vehicle is tied down the weight of the vehicle will also be on the E-Track so you will essentially be bolting the E-track down to keep it from moving forward and back.
