How to Choose Fasteners When Installing E-track

We’ve posted a how to install E-track video, but how do you know which fasteners to choose for installing on E-track? There are three common types of fastening systems for E-track:

Through-Bolting Fasteners

Uses a nut and bolt system and creates the best hold. These products are normally used in the floor, where a nut, bolt and washer on the underside will not be an issue.

The 1/4" diameter bolt is available in two sizes: 1-1/2" hex bolt and a 2" hex bolt.


Self-Drilling Tip Screws for Metal

Hex head tip screws make it easier to drive through while preventing any slippage from happening. A self-drilling tip means you won’t have to pre-drill holes in most metal surfaces unless specified otherwise.

Available in two sizes: 1-1/2" hex screw and a 2" hex screw.


Wood Screws

Hex head fasteners lessen the change of slippage while driving and the wide washer head creates excellent holding power.

Available in a 3/4" wood screw and 1-1/2" wood screw.
