L-Track Fittings and Installation

While E track tie downs have been the traditional favorite for flat trailers and enclosed trailer tie downs, L track tie down systems (also called logistic track or airline track) is gaining in popularity. Because of its lower profile, airline track tie down rail and fittings are ideal for smaller spaces like truck beds. In addition to lengths of logistic track tie down rail, single track pieces are also available in a 2′ round or 2″ rectangular style so you can create single anchor points wherever you need them. And with range of l track fittings, and even ratchet straps outfitted with both e-track and l-track fittings, becoming more widely available, these slim, sleek cargo tie downs can be used to easily and quickly secure just about anything.
