Its always important to install E-Track right where it needs to be...but where is that?

Etrack comes in many different sizes (singles2'5'8', and 10 feet), as well as painted or galvanized. When putting e-track in a trailer, it is best to find the wall studs - same applies if you are mounting it on the floor.

Mark the studs with a marker or pencil and then you can attach your e-track to the wall/floor. We have found #14 self tapping screws are great if you are attaching via the studs. 1/4" bolts with nuts and washer work best if drilling through a thick plywood floor.

So, if you want to install Etrack in a trailer - you will usually use two rows on the sidewall.

It is not necessary to to put e-track all the way to the corner of your trailer, it can save a few bucks and you will not use it most of the time.
