L-Track, also known as Logistic Track or Airline Track is a versatile tie-down system consisting of aluminum rails, fittings, and straps used to secure a range of cargo.
The L-Track adjustable cargo track can be installed on trailers and pickup truck beds; in vans and enclosed trailers; even utility trailers or vehicles on the farm, construction site, manufacturing facility, etc. You can use an L-Track Aluminum Track Rail nearly anywhere you need to secure cargo quickly and easily. The multiple round openings on the rails allow for quick attachment of spring fittings so you can create a custom tie-down at any point in the rail.
Aluminum L-Track is designed with a narrower profile than traditional E-Track, making it ideal for use with pickup trucks, vans, and other vehicles where space may be limited. L-Track lengths range from 6” to 96” to easily fit a variety of vehicles and have pre-drilled holes for quick and easy installation. L-track singles can also be installed on ATVs, skid loaders, garden tractors, etc. to create a spot for a quick connection of logistic track tie-down straps , bungee cords , rope , and more!

Types of L-Track
We offer L-Track in 4 different styles so it's easy to find a design that suits your specific needs.
Standard L-Track is our most popular style of logistic tie-down track and features the narrow profile L-Track is known for but has been updated to offer a range of popular colors. Painted L-Track is great for coordinating straps, vehicle colors, or logo color schemes, and looks especially sharp when used for ATV Tie-Downs, Snowmobile Trailer Tie-Downs, or Dirt Bike Tie-Downs. All our colored L-track has a durable, powder-coated finish to resist abrasions and protect the aluminum. We stock 6", 12", 24", 48", 72", and 96" lengths; all with pre-drilled holes for easy installation. 2" single point tie-downs are also available in both a round and rectangular style and are perfect for adding a tie-down point if you don't have room to install a full track. Our Standard L-Track is suitable for both surface and flush-mounted installations.
Aircraft Style L-Track
Aircraft Style L-Track features a square profile, like our Standard L-Track, but is made from a stronger, high-quality grade 6351 for applications requiring extra strength than regular aluminum L-Track. This style of tie-down rails was made popular in the airline industry as a way to secure seats, but the versatility of tie-down tracks makes them an excellent choice for many consumer tie-down applications. Although this heavy-duty aluminum track is still known by a variety of similar airline terms (airline track, airline track tie-downs, airline cargo straps, airplane cargo tie-down rails, aircraft-style seat track), it's important to note that not all grades of this heavy-duty aluminum tracking are FAA certified for use in the airline industry.
Angled L-Track features sloped edges, making it easier to roll items such as motorcycles, ATVs, utility carts, and other wheeled-objects over the tie-down track. Angled L-Track is for surface mounted applications and is also commonly referred to as surface angled track or surface L-Track. Angled L-Track Tie Down Rails are common in the transportation industry as a floor anchor system for wheelchairs; however, our angled L-track is designed for recreational and cargo control use only; it is not certified for official wheelchair restraint use in buses, vans, and other transport vehicles. Our angled aluminum tracking is made from grade 6061-T6 aluminum for superior corrosion resistance and has pre-drilled holes for easy installation.
Recessed L-Track is also known as Flanged L-Track and is designed for flush-mount installations. This flush-surface benefit makes it ideal for applications where wheeled-items are rolled over the track. Like angled L-track, this style of adjustable cargo tie-down rail system is popular in the transportation industry for floor anchor systems and wheelchair tie-downs because of the ease of rolling items across it. Our recessed L-track is designed for recreational and cargo control use only; it is not certified for official wheelchair restraint use in buses, vans, and other transport vehicles. Our Flanged L-Track is made from grade 6061-T6 aluminum for excellent corrosion resistance and has pre-drilled holes for easy installation.
L-Track Fittings and Accessories
A wide range of stud fittings and accessories help make L-Track Systems so versatile. Most fittings are designed to be placed at any point along the track to create an instant and secure tie-down point. You can choose from a selection of single stud fittings and double stud fittings, each with a variety of attachments, such as round rings, d-rings, delta links, bolt threads, and more. Other accessories such as our flanged end cap and track filler strip make it easy to create a more finished look and even surface installation in your truck or trailer.
While the versatility of L-Track Fittings typically allows you to use a wide range of tie-down strap options, we stock a large selection of L-Track Straps which are designed specifically to easily connect to logistic tie-down track rails and L-Track fittings. Some popular options include our 1" Ratchet Strap With S-Hooks and 2" x 12' Yellow E Track Strap w/ Spring E-Fittings and Double Stud Fittings .
