We’ve posted a how to install E-track video, but how do you know which fasteners to choose for attaching E-track? There are three common types of fastening systems for E-track:
Uses a nut and bolt system and creates the best hold. This is typically 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
Hex head makes it easier to drive without slippage. A self-drilling tip means you won’t have to pre-drill holes in most metal surfaces. Available in two sizes: 1-1/2" hex screw and a 2" hex screw.
A hex head lessens 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.
