Traxstech Aluminum Backing Plates

The Traxstech Aluminum Backing Plates is recommended if you are going to use down-riggers or have thin walls on our boat. This added support is recommended for the 6 inch, 12 inch, 18 inch, and 24-inch mounting tracks. The longer tracks spread the strength out and a backing plate is usually not necessary. If you wish to use backing plates with tracks 36 inches and longer we recommend that you use the 3-inch ones.

Part # BP – BP / Aluminum Backing Plates

Q. How many and what size backing plates do I need?

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.
