FYI I got my quote from Norden who are the Sure-Lok distributor in Australia.
Quote was for 100" (2.5metre) lengths.

I might go and have a look at sail track. It's readily available and much more reasonably priced (despite the 'marine' tag). Anyone use this in their Sprinter?

I took a look at Harken and Ronstan before I did the L Track as posted above. Here in California the sailing gear was much more expensive.
The aircraft quality L track (2) 48" sections, drilled w/ stainless mounting bolts and nylon locking nuts were about $90
including shipping and 4 quick release fittings.

A few L-track questions for Rob:

I see you have end caps for the flanged track. Do you have end caps for the angled and recessed track? If not, can the puck from the single stud fitting kit be cut in half to make an end cap for the angled track?

Also, while researching this, I realized that in aircraft, the track between the rows of seats is covered with an extruded rubber cap. There is actually a Boeing part number for this, but I do not know what it is, and it probably works only with the flanged and recessed track. Since this is going on the bottom of the window in my passenger van, I'd like to cover the stretches of angled track that aren't in use. Any solutions?

Sean

Still looking for an affordable L-Track solution and came across some aluminium extrusion similar to the 80/20 product but, in Australia at least, a lot cheaper. It's also available in the US.

Here's the specs:


At 16mm thick, it's a little thicker than LTrack. Cost for a 6metre length is $A124.

In Oz, this place has some L-track type extrusions...


Lots of connectors and joiners too.

Even has an online store, that particular profile above is $140 for 6 meters.

There's also AME (locally made) but neither have a 16mm profile which I think would be the thickest you'd want for a tie down rail,

Sean,

We currently sell a plastic filler strip that can be cut into sections that will snap into the unused sections of track. The roll is sold in 25' rolls here is the link http://www.cargoequipmentcorp.com/Wh...p/fe200751.htm
As for the end caps, our 8663 end cap (only one we stock) will work with the recessed Fe751 series track. http://www.cargoequipmentcorp.com/Se...ngs-p/8663.htm
The puck will not pair well with with any of the L track styles available. We have been looking into different style end caps but nothing set in stone as of yet.

Are their versatie tracks the same as L-tracks?

Anyone still watching this thread? I want to put L-Track on the walls of my 2014 Sprinter 3500 Ext, but nobody seems to make an L-Track with the right dimensions.

This one from Rob's biz is almost right, but instead of a 1/2 inch rise up to the flange, I need about 1/8 of an inch maximum: http://www.cargoequipmentcorp.com/L-...51-100-pd4.htm (Need 1/8 so the flange will still squeeze and hold down the plastic wall pieces in place.)

Or, I could make something like this work, if it were 2 inches wide instead of only 1.25. - http://www.cargoequipmentcorp.com/L-...50-100-pd4.htm

Take my money, someone, please! Need to find the right track though.
