Cargo Bars for Cargo Securement

Cargo Bars are known around the professional trucking industry and cargo securement industry as Load Lock Bars, Pickup Truck Bars, Steel Load Lock Bars, and Load Distribution Bars. Cargo Bars work by locking into place during transport to keep cargo secured in place to create more available space inside of moving vans and dry vans. Allowing more available space for cargo securement in the trailer can result in fewer trips that otherwise would require more fuel and more risk for error to happen to the customer’s cargo.

One of the many benefits of using cargo bars is the ability to help prevent load shifts during transit, able to quickly secure within a matter of seconds, and lock into place to ensure the cargo remains in place throughout the entire move. One thing that cargo bars provide cargo is stability and plays a part in preventing accidents by securing and stabilizing loads that are stacked or may have come loose during a sharp turn, sudden brake, or sudden lane change. Loose products can easily fall out of the back of a dry van trailer and can cause a potentially dangerous situation for the driver opening the door as well as an upset customer from damaged cargo. Although load shifts may not cause damage during every move reducing the chance of it happening can cause you a great amount of peace of mind.

All of our cargo bars are made out of strong and durable steel that helps to make these cargo bars extremely long-lasting and trustworthy when securing your cargo matters the most. Some competitor companies will often attempt to lower costs by using cheaper made paddle mechanisms or jack mechanisms, all of our cargo bars are made out of strong high-quality steel that makes these bars durable. Part of the large success behind our cargo bars is due to our load lock mechanism design that provides an easy adjustment to fit in your securement location in the back of a pickup truck bed, dry van tractor-trailer, station wagon, or moving van. We supply several different cargo bars to the professional shipping industry such as Load Lock Bars, Jack Bars, Steel Load Locks, Pickup Truck Cargo Bars, Decking Beams, E Track Rail Systems, and Ratcheting Cargo Bars to name a few.

Decking Beams is the perfect way to help ensure that your cargo is fully secured during transport by shoring the cargo. Decking Beams also work great alongside our popular E Track Rial Systems that allows you to create layers or decks of cargo to help utilize extra space inside of the trailer so you don’t have to make as many trips. A few of the added benefits of using E Track Rails and Decking Beams together are being able to keep cargo extremely secured while keeping the cargo neatly organized inside of the enclosed trailer.

Jack Load Lock Bars

Jack Load Bars are very similar to our traditional Load Lock Bars and are used to use outward pressure to help cargo stay secured in place in enclosed trailers and professional semi-truck dry vans. Jack Load Lock Bars are different from Load Lock Bars due to using a different mechanism that helps to apply pressure that is similar to the way that a car jack works. You can simply pump the Jack Load Bar Handle to extend the bar to help apply an outward force to keep the bar secured in place. Once a Jack Load Bar is in place you will be able to have peace of mind knowing your cargo is secured fully in place and can greatly help organize and improve the available amount of space that is used for transport.

Jack Load Bars can be known around the industry as Steel Jack Bars, Trench Shoring Bars, and Ratcheting Cargo Bars just to name a few of the popular alternative names. Jack Bars are incredibly heavy-duty and are made to be durable for securing some of the heaviest types of cargo on the roads using these bars. Jack Load Bars are mainly used in the professional trucking industry but have started to move into various other industries such as moving vans over the last decade.

E Track Rail Systems for Enclosed Trailers and Enclosed Dry Vans

E Track Rail Systems have become a major part of securing cargo in dry vans, enclosed trailers, and moving vans over the last decade as it can easily help speed up your securement times as well as improve the strength of the securement for the cargo. E Track is installed along the walls and the flooring of the trailer and moving vans and allows for numerous different securement points along the rails that are installed vertically or horizontally based on the type of cargo you are securing.

Once the e track systems are installed you are able to utilize the added strength of the walls or flooring of the trailer for securing your cargo to ensure that the cargo does not come out of place during transport. E Track Systems can utilize E Track Straps, E Track Shoring Beams, Wood Beam Sockets, and Rope Tie Offs to create numerous different securement applications by using the already installed rails making it extremely versatile.

Horizontal E Track vs Vertical E Track Rails

Horizontal E Track – is best used for transporting cars, bikes, motorcycles, snowmobiles, UTV’s, and cargo securement. E track makes cargo securement a breeze with the ability to align the horizontal E track pieces with the side of the trailer walls, ceiling, or even floor of the trailer that you intend on using for cargo control. This allows for cargo equipment to be quickly attached and detached within seconds. Horizontal E Track works best with vehicle transportation; although it works great with its main purpose of cargo as well.

Vertical E Track – is best used when transporting cargo in the back of professional trucks and trailers. Vertical E Track can be used in conjunction with shoring beams to keep cargo from shifting during transportation. This helps prevent loss of your load or damage that could occur during the shipping process. There is nothing worse than arriving at your destination and realizing that your cargo was damaged due to a load shift in a quick movement.

The Two Main Types of E Track Straps

There are two main types of different E Track Straps that are used in the back of pickup trucks and trailers. One of these straps is Cam Buckle E Track Straps and the other is E Track Ratchet Straps. Both of these straps are used for cargo securement which is why Polyester Tie Down Webbing is used so the cargo stretches very little and remains secured in place.

E Track Ratchet StrapsE Track Ratchet Straps come in both 1 inch and 2 inches wide varieties and are made from polyester tie-down webbing that stretches very little. These straps can be latched into place in E Track rails that are run along the walls and the flooring of trailers or moving vans and can be tightened into place using Ratchet hardware that flows in one direction. This allows for the tightest and most secure way to keep your cargo from moving out of place in the back of a tractor-trailer, dry van, or pickup trailer.

E Track Cam Buckle StrapsE Track Cam Buckle Straps come in 2-inch wide tie-down webbing and are also made from our popular 2-inch polyester tie-down webbing that stretches very little. The main difference between this strap and E Track Ratchet Straps is this strap is tightened by hand strength using a Cam Buckle instead of using a ratchet that could potentially overtighten if you are not being careful. Cam Buckle Straps go great for customers’ sensitive cargo, antiques, and bundling cargo against the wall to stay organized and save valuable space in trailers.

The Different Sizes of E Track Rails

Horizontal E Track Sizes Vertical E Track Sizes
2’ Horizontal Section 2’ Vertical Section
5’ Horizontal Section 5’ Vertical Section
8’ Horizontal Section 8’ Vertical Section
10’ Horizontal Section 10’ Vertical Section

Hoop Load Bars

Hoop Load Bars can be known around the professional trucking industry as Hoop Bars, Butterfly Loop Bars, or Weld-on Hoop Bars. Hoop Bars help to secure cargo tightly in order to prevent the cargo from moving or shifting out of place during transport. These bars differ from traditional cargo bars as they have three different rows of securement compared to one row of strength to hold the cargo in place. Hoop bars are great for smaller cargo as well as boxes that are larger in size and may need extra surface area to be held in place.

There are two main types of Hoop Bars with one being Bolt-On Hoop Bars and the other being Weld-On Hoop Bars. As the name describes each of the bars are Weld-on Hoop bars being professionally welded onto the bar to ensure extra added strength or bolt-on hoops that are easier to store and simply bolt into place to provide an equal amount of strength depending on preference, as well as the types of cargo you are typically transporting as well.

Warning WARNING: Cargo bars do not have load ratings due to the varying conditions of trailer sidewalls. Ratings that are on the aluminum beams and steel beams are based on and tested at an evenly distributed weight.
