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 attaching e-track? There are three common types of fastening systems for e track:

Through-bolting


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.

 

Wood screws

A hex head lessens the change of slippage while driving and the wide washer head creates excellent holding power.
