How to Use and Install L-Track and L-Track Systems
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. This style of cargo track gained popularity in the airline industry as a method to secure seats to the floor of the aircraft. The narrow, low profile rail design and multiple openings for fittings make it ideal for securing everything from motorcycles and ATVs, to smaller boxes and odd-shaped cargo.

Standard L-Track is our most popular style of L-Track because of its versatility to secure a wide-range of cargo. It's available in a wide range of sizes and colors, so it's easy to customize your airline track system to meet your needs. It is suitable for both surface and flush-mounted installations.
Aircraft Style L-Track
Aircraft Style L-Track features a square profile, similar to our Standard L-Track, but is made from a stronger, high-quality grade 6351 for applications requiring extra strength than regular aluminum L-Track.
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.
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.
While some of our L-track kits include tie-down straps, we sell a huge variety of ratchet straps and cam buckle straps in ourRatchet Straps & Tie Downs category. If you still don’t see the strap you need for strapping down a motorcycle, ATV, lawnmower, etc., custom straps are also an option. We manufacture our straps in house, so a custom order is cost-efficient and quick to ship from our centrally-located facility. No minimum quantities are required.
