Tie Ring Mounting Hardware, Stainless Steel (REUSABLE!)
Your trailer wall thicknesses determines which kit you will need.
We recommend that all of our tie rings be installed with stainless steel hardware, on both aluminum & steel horse trailers.
Who wants to see rust running down the wall of your beautiful new horse trailer?
The aluminum tie ring is designed to break in an accident before it pulls a hole in your expensive trailer. This mounting hardware we have put together is able to be re-used to mount a replacement tie ring, instead of starting all over with new hardware and a trip to the hardware store. It is unlikely that the stainless steel tie ring can be broken by a horse, and you will be dealing with rust drips if they are installed with regular steel hardware. There are no sharp edges on either side, it will never rust and the installation looks neat and professional. A good investment, you can re-use these tie ring fasteners & over again as needed, for the life of the trailer!
Use a 3/8" drill bit for the exterior hole where the truss bolt installs, and a 7/32" drill bit for the interior hole where the machine screw & washer install. Fit the nylon bushings onto the truss head bolts. Tap the truss head bolt through the mounting holes on the tie ring. Fit the tie ring onto the trailer wall, putting the truss head bolts through the exterior drilled holes. Move to the inside of the trailer, put the machine screws through the washers & into the truss bolts, tighten & done!
