Default L Track, Fittings and Straps

My name is Rob Snyder and I work at Cargo Equipment Corporation and I have had several members tell me that I need to get involved on this site to help with your cargo securement applications, so I have joined up to see if I can help answer any questions about the correct track, fittings or strap assemblies for your sprinter van. Please message me if you need any assistance.

Hi Rob,

Welcome.

I may be one of your oldest customers here. I put ten rows of L-track in my DIY 02 back in 04 and have been singing your praises ever since. When I wanted a certain flavor of your L-track pre-drilled it was no problem getting that done for me. Excellent prices and prompt service.

I'd love to get some of this stuff to fit out my van but the local prices are bordering on criminal.
Too big to economically import from the USA though

I do love my L-track.

I was thinking, "Wait. I can direct him to someplace. They must use it in Australia for aircraft seats because it's an industry standard."

Then I remembered that when I did dabble into aircraft parts I learned that "aviation grade" makes "marine grade" look cheap in comparison. Maybe search for "wheelchair securement" in Australia? That's a popular application in the US of A. It still won't be cheap, but you may avoid the "aviation" up-price? Good luck. vic

The L-Track I got a price on from the local distributor was the same stuff that Strapman describes (Sure-Lok?)
Price was over double ($A120+ not including delivery) as opposed to the typical $US50 I see advertised by places such as Cargo Equipment and Sure-Lok.

Perhaps I need to machine my own. I've got a mill ...

I just priced some L track this week in Hobart from the ANCRA distributer, $100 a metre approximately, and he told me he was only adding $7 margin on it. (39" for those metrically challenged), so that makes it about 4 times the price from America.

I'm wondering if we can find somebody who will cut the lengths down, then put them in to a shipping package and send to Australia if that's a solution.
