New Products: L-Track

ltrackmain-application-bannerWe’re thrilled to now be offering more than 100 new L-track tie down rails, kits, and accessories.

If you’re not familiar with L-track, it’s time to become acquainted. These tie down rails are easily installed in a truck to create a truck bed rail system, on a motorcycle trailer, inside a utility trailer- nearly anywhere you need to add spots to anchor a tie down strap, bungee cord, etc.

While it may be confused with the more widely-known E-track, there are some key differences:

  • Narrow, higher profile so it doesn’t get in the way.
  • Available in recessed and angled styles to make it even more inconspicuous.
  • Can be installed horizontally or vertically. E-track is designed specifically for one installation or the other.
  • Available in single point style, which make great truck tie down anchors in pickup truck beds, or smaller trailers.
  • Colored options are available to coordinate with cycles, ATVs, straps, etc.

Is it L-track, airline track, or logistic track?

L-track is also known by several other names, which can cause some confusion. It’s sometimes called airline track or seat track because of its use in the airline industry as track to secure seats inside aircraft. It’s also popular as a wheelchair tie down in commercial vehicles like buses and vans due to its strength and its low, inconspicuous design.

The term logistic track is really just a catch-all name for all types of tie down rails, including E-track, A-track (similar in style to E-track), and F track (looks like a hybrid of E-track and L-track, with a flat profile and small, round holes).

Types of L-track rails

l-track-red-table-headerColored L-track. These aluminum powder coated pieces come in colors to match popular motorcycle and ATV brand colors: red (Honda), blue (Yamaha), orange (Harley-Davidson and KTM), and green (Kawasaki), as well as aluminum and black. Olive is also available to coordinate with camo or military themes. Choose from several styles, ranging from single anchor points to full-length rails. Stud fittings are also painted to match. Looking for a motorcycle tie down system or an ATV tie down system? We offer several all-inclusive kits on our Motorcycle Tie Down Systems page. Don’t forget to check out our selection of motorcycle straps for use as motorcycle or ATV tie downs.

 

20870-6-aircraft-style-seat-airline-track_1_375Aircraft style seat track. This is the strongest line we sell, in a heavy-duty  6351-T6 aluminum for superior corrosion resistance.  It features a heftier width (1-3/8″) and height (1/2″) than our regular colored L-track, and comes in full 6′ and 12′ lengths (which can be cut to size). It accepts all of our L-track tie down system accessories, including single and double fittings, and aircraft seat track cover.

 

42499-12-airline-track-style-angled-track-aluminum_1_375Angled L-track. Angled L-track differs from regular L-track in profile: the sloping edges offer the benefit of a smoother ride when crossing over track installed on the floor of the trailer or truck. This is a great choice for not only securing motorcycles and ATVs, it’s also ideal for use in a delivery truck, van trailer, etc., where items are frequently rolled in and out.

Recessed L-track.  Recessed L-track is just that- it’s installed in a recessed manner to create a smoother, more flat surface that makes it easy for rolling cargo over. It has a clean, flanged design and like all of our L-track, has pre-drilled holes for easy installation. Recessed L-track is popular in commercial vehicles like buses and vans for wheelchair securement, but it’s important to note that ours is meant only for recreational vehicle tie down use.
