What’s round, measures less than 2″ high, yet has the ability to withstand up to 4,000 lbs. of pressure? A single L-track fitting with round ring.
This simple workhorse is easy to install- just attach the round airline track single base using screws and click the fitting into the recessed area. But more importantly, these little pieces are big on versatility. While longer L-track sections – such as the popular 24 inch aluminum L-track rail – are traditionally used on a trailer to secure motorcycles and ATVs with 2-inch tie down straps, these single L-track fittings can be placed anywhere you need an anchor point. They’re the perfect solution if you’re short on space and a full track length won’t fit, such as behind a wheel well in a trailer, or if placing a full track isn’t an ideal option, such as on the tailgate of a pickup truck.
But don’t limit L-track singles to just a trailer or truck: use them in the garage, shed, utility room, barn- the possibilities are endless. Attach one to the garage wall, add a cinch strap to the ring and you instantly have a place to hang hoses, rope, cords, wire, etc. The round ring can also accommodate a bungee cord or rubber tarp strap hook for lots of lighter duty applications. And the strength capacity makes them great for securing heavier items as well. In fact, manufacturing shops attach these single anchor points on carts to secure items for transport within the facility, so consider them of use on an ATV, utility tractor, etc.
The L-track name comes from the term “logistic track” and is sometimes also referred to as L track or airline track, because it’s used in the airline industry to secure seating components. The longer track pieces are ideal if you need an adjustable anchor point, as it’s designed with several indentions for the fitting to secure. However, when space is tight and there not enough room for an entire track length, a single l-track fitting is the perfect solution.
