Description

The foundation of Traxstech's Ultimate Fishing System is its anodized aluminum mounting tracks with grooved interior design. Once installed, our mounting track system for boats allows rod holders, downriggers, and other marine electronics to be easily slid into the track. Once in place, the star-shaped thumb screws just need to be tightened to secure any accessories in place. When you are not fishing, just slide your fishing equipment out of the mounting track and replace it with our starboard sheet track insert.

Mounting Track Width: 3 1/2"

Mounting Track Lengths: 6 inch, 12 inch, 18 inch, 24 inch, 36 inch, 48 inch, 60 inch, and 72 inch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What length/size of the mounting track should I mount on my boat?

A. The track is the least expensive item and it is easier to mount one longer track, rather than adding it in smaller sections down the road. i.e. If you want to add another rod holder, net holder or adjustable cleat, with the longer track you are already set up for it. Just slide it in and go.

Q. Do the mounting tracks come with hardware to install them?

A. Yes. They come with stainless steel 1-3/4" long screws with lock washers, fender washers, and nuts.

Q. Is the price for two mounting tracks? Or one?

A. The price is for one track.

Q. Does Traxstech include end caps with a purchase of its mounting tracks?

A. No. Mounting track endcaps are sold separately. You can purchase them here.

*** Note ***The longer the track the more it spreads out the weight and torque that may occur with heavier or multiple items on the track with the ACB-250 system. It also means you may not need to have the ACB-250 bracket at every mounting hole on the track.

Q. What is the minimum length of the track I can use to install my vertical trees to my boat?

A. We recommend using a 24" section of track or longer. The longer the track, the more strength and stability you will have. Using a shorter length of track increases your odds of having equipment failure and loss.

Q. What is the minimum length of the track I can use to install downriggers to my boat?

A. We recommend using a 24" section of track or longer. The longer the track, the more strength and stability you will have. Using a shorter length of track increases your odds of having equipment failure and loss. For downriggers, we recommend installing the track directly to the boat's gunwale.

Q. How many backer plates do I need for my Traxstech mounting track?

A. If you are installing a 6", 12", 18", 24" or 36" track you need to order just one backing plate in the corresponding size. If you are installing anything over 36" and wish to use a backing plate as well you must order the 3" backing plate - (Part: #3-BP). The other size backing plates will not line up properly with the mounting holes on your tracks.

Mounting Track Backer Plates Needed
6” (MT-6 or BMT-6) One (1) 6" Plate (#6-BP)
12” (MT-12 or BMT-12) One (1) 12" Plate (#12-BP)

24” (MT-24 or BMT-24) One (1) 24" Plate (#24-BP)

    Your track has gone on several boats. Never an issue.

    Have used your products on several boats over the years. Whether it’s stopping by the shop, seeing someone at one of the shows over the years or a simple call or email. It’s all good.

    The mounting track is a great product.

    Makes for a quick and easy set up when going out on the lake. Options are unlimited for rod position for changing conditions.
