E-Track and A-Track Bolt-Down Fitting, 5/16-18 HandEtrack,
Manufactured by: Neal Technologies, Inc.
When you are in the Baja as much as Neal Technologies, Inc. is, you know what it takes to carry cargo safely, securely and easily across tough terrain. We have created a Patented cargo bolt-down solution so simple that anyone can use it.
Utilizing either "e-track", "a-track" or "x-track" rails, found in many common applications like enclosed trailers, truck beds, cargo vans and semi-trailers, the bolt-down fitting connects to the track system providing a rigid "bolt-down" connection point not previously available in the cargo management industry.
The bolt-down fitting provides two 5/16"-18 or 1/4"-20 threaded bolt-down points that can be easily relocated across the various anchoring slots of the rails. This bolt-down fitting is compatible with brand name providers of the e-track and a-track rails including Ancra International, Kinedyne and US Cargo Control.
Whether it is in a commercial or recreational application, the uses for this type of bolt-down fitting combined with the versatility of the e-track and a-track rails are endless. This new style of fitting provides the ability to bolt-down everything from spare tires and tools, to custom fixtures for mounting those unique items that complement your job or lifestyle. However, the best feature is how quickly your secured storage needs can be reconfigured with minimal hand tools.
In general we developed and tested our fittings to be stronger than the E-Track that it mounts in. So for pull out strength your design limit should be whatever your E-track is rated for. In shear the E-Track is stronger making the shear strength of the bolts the design limit: about 4000lbs for our 5/16-18 fitting and about 2700lbs for our 1/4-20 fitting breaking strength using (2) Grade 8 bolts. This is the failure load. You will have to determine what working load, hardware, and factor of safety you are comfortable with.
