Once you’ve installed your e-track, be sure to add plastic end caps to the horizontal tracks. The smooth black plastic creates a clean, finished look and not only prevents cargo, clothes, hands, and feet from catching on the metal ends, it also protects the metal e-track from abrasions.
Plastic end caps for etrack can be used on the walls or floors, but they are designed to fit horizontal E-track only.
To install, be sure to loosen the track slightly to ensure a good fit, add the end cap and then re-tighten the fasteners to secure .

Trying to decide whether L-track or E-track is the best choice for your tie-down needs? It depends on where you’ll be installing it.
Generally, the narrow width of L-track works great for installing on the walls or floor of a pickup truck bed. L-track is available in an
aluminum or a black painted finish. Lengths include 6″, 12″, 24″, and 48″.
The wider width of E-track makes it a good choice for installation inside an enclosed trailer or on the floor of an open trailer. It’s available in horizontal and vertical styles and in a galvanized or a green painted finish. Lengths include 2′, 5′, 8′, and 10′.
Both L track and E track are incredibly strong and versatile, but traditionally there are more straps and fittings available on the market for E-track. L-track (also sometimes known as airline track) is gaining in popularity, so more and more accessories are becoming available.

E-track fittings are easy to insert and remove from etrack sections:
1.) Hold the fitting at a downward angle while pulling up on the locking pin using your index finger.

3.) To remove the fitting, pull the release lever and lift the fitting out at an angle.
