Function of E Track Tie-Down System
Whether it's a cooler for your hike or furniture for a client, the freight you carry should be securely locked when in transit. The E track method allows for the efficient tie-down of all cargo with one central system that is easy to use and maintain.
Horizontal E Track Rails
Horizontal E track rails are the ideal tie-downs for cars, ATVs, and motorcycles. Two parallel tracks on the floor, with many slots for tie-down anchors, allow the vehicle to be safely secured using several wheel nets together with other attachments like roller idler fittings, ratchet straps, rings, tie-offs, etc. Two horizontal tracks on opposite walls can be used as anchor points for load bars that secure cargo and create additional levels for freight placement. One track alone on the wall can be used for tool and equipment lockdown, the stowage of personal accessories, and to hold bars, beams, and rods against the wall.

2' Galvanized E Track Tie-Down
The 2' E track is the shortest one available. It can be easily installed in small spaces like corners and tailgates or as an add-on to lengthier tracks. It comes in horizontal direction only and the placement of 1" slots at 1" intervals means there are 12 slots that can be used as anchor points. This 2' rail is made of a hardy steel that can endure all the abuse it may get in the cargo industry and is galvanized with zinc to increase corrosion- and rust- resistance. The 2' horizontal E track rail is also available in painted black and green finishes.
How to Install E Track Rails
Installing E tracks is quite straightforward and requires just a few minutes and simple tools. Once you have identified the location in which you'd like to mount your track, it is best to use a leveler to ensure straight angles. This is especially important if you will be installing two parallel tracks, particularly opposite each other. The E tracks have holes spaced 2" apart running along both sides of the rails. Choose from the various E track bolts and E track screws options we have for metal and wood surfaces. Note that it is not necessary to fasten every hole; a high average would be ten fasteners for every two feet of track.
