E Track Straps for Cargo Securement
E Track Straps are amongst one of the most commonly used types of straps for cargo securement in moving vans, semi-trailers, dry vans, moving trucks, pickup trailers, and enclosed trailers to name a few. E Track Straps work with horizontal and vertical e track rails that are installed along the walls and flooring of the trailer or moving van in order to utilize the strength of the walls or flooring to secure cargo. One of the main reasons why E Track Straps are so popular is the ability to secure cargo quickly, securely, and from a wide range of different securement points in a matter of minutes. One of the largest perks of using these tie-down straps along with e track systems is saving professional movers and professional truck drivers time. This can be a game-changer for companies’ growth, customer relationships, as well as having it easier for the drivers to load and unload the cargo and goods faster.
E Track Straps come in two main types of straps with one of the varieties being E Track Ratchet Straps and the other being E Track Cam Buckle Straps. Both of these straps are made to quickly latch into e track systems that are installed along with the floors and walls of the trailer or moving van. Some of the perks of using E Track Ratchet Straps include being able to tighten the cargo much tighter which works great for heavier duty cargo. Cam Buckle E Track Straps are used for more sensitive cargo such as customers’ belongings, antiques, and other materials such as glassware that could more easily break. Cam Buckle E Track Straps are tightened by the strength of your hands which helps reduce the chances of over-tightening your cargo causing potential damage.
One of the most important things to decide when determining if E Track Ratchet Straps or E Track Cam Buckle Straps is the better strap for your application needs. If the cargo that you are securing is going to be valuable, at risk of becoming damaged, or in a situation where you are moving a customer’s belongings to a new house you may want to use Cam Buckle E Track Straps as a great alternative to E Track Ratchet Straps. If the cargo you are securing is heavier, wooden, metal, or boxes that have been packaged correctly you can definitely use E Track Ratchet Straps that would provide you with more strength for securement.
What is E Track Systems?
E Track systems have become an important part of the professional cargo control industry for cargo securement. E Track Systems work by installing rails that run along the walls and flooring of the trailer to create securement points that provide the strength of the trailer to secure cargo. This helps professional shippers utilize all of the available space in the trailer or moving van to save space while creating new securement points from a variety of different securement points. This helps to save professional movers and professional truck drivers save time and money by staying on the road for longer periods of time while using the highest amount of available space inside of the trailer, dry van, or moving van.
As there has been a steady increase in highway traffic over the last decade safety is becoming more and more important than ever to ensure that your cargo is secured properly. An unsecured load can cause damage, injure others, as well as costing you money in potential fines. One thing to remember is the Department of Transportation (DOT) put roadway safety standards in place in order to keep you and everyone else on the roadway safe. The best way for anyone transporting any size or weight of cargo on the road is to know your load’s weight and the limitations of your straps by finding the tie-down straps working load limit. When transporting cargo having a baseline of what the straps are safely rated for to use during the transportation is a must, we often hear of customers transporting cargo with straps that will not support the weight of their load.

The Different Types of E Track Straps
E Track Ratchet Straps – These straps are the same design as our popular ratchet straps that are used for cargo securement along with e track fittings that allow your strap to be quickly latched into e track rails. E Track rails are installed along the walls and flooring of the trailer and provide strength to the overall cargo securement as you can now utilize the strength of walls and flooring as well of the moving van or pickup trailer. You can easily secure a normal-sized and weight load within a matter of minutes and unloading and releasing is just as quickly making it one of the more popular types of straps in the e track and professional moving industry.

E Track Cam Buckle Straps – These straps are designed similar to our E Track Ratchet Straps but utilize Cam Buckle Hardware instead of a Ratchet Mechanism. This helps to prevent any sort of damage from overtightening as the straps can only be secured as much as you can pull by using the strength of your hands. These straps are great for securing cargo that is more valuable, non-replaceable, or antiques as a few of the popular uses. We often see professional movers use a blend of Ratchet Straps and Cam Buckle straps for E Track systems, but generally, a lot of professional movers tend to prefer cam buckle straps as they are quicker to use and have less chance of damaging customers personal belongings.

Frequently Asked E Track Strap Questions
How Long of E Track Straps Do I Need for My Trailer? – The best way in determining what size of strap that you need to reach around the cargo and to the e track rial would be to take a piece of yarn or string. Once you have a rough idea of the length of webbing that you need you can take a tape measure and round up to the next closet number based on the measurement. It is always a good idea to go slightly bigger than risking not having enough webbing when transporting cargo. Some of our most popular lengths of webbing for e track straps are normally 16 feet long straps, but based on the trailer or moving van this may not be a one size fits all solution.
What is the most commonly bought size of E Track Rails? – In general, most people who are professional movers or professional truck drivers will buy 8-foot e track trails that are installed along with the floors and walls of the trailers and will buy enough to cover the entire sides or flooring of the trailer to provide the trailer with a variety of different securement points.
Can you run over E Track Rails with a vehicle? – Yes! E Track will be perfectly fine if you accidentally run over the rails that are installed properly inside of the trailer. This is based upon normal size cars that are not oversized or incredibly heavy in physical weight.
What is the longest length that Custom Made E Track Straps Can Be Made? – Ultimately you can have almost any length of webbing that fits your securement application best. However, adding excess webbing length will not increase the strength of your strap.
What are the differences between E Track Ratchet Straps vs E Track Cam Buckle Straps? – Everything on these straps is completely the same outside of the tightening mechanism. Cam Buckle Straps are used to tighten using the amount of force you can pull, whereas Ratchet Straps use a Ratchet hardware mechanism that can tighten much tighter if desired.
