Shipboard Mounting Systems Frequently Asked Questions

  • Have these systems been shock tested and approved?
    Both the KX1125 steel track and KX1130 aluminum track versions have been tested and qualified to MIL-S-901D Shock Test, Medium Weight and MIL-STD-167-1A Vibration for Shipboard, Hull-Mounted.

  • What is the total weight of the system?
    The KX1125 steel track version weighs approximately 44 pounds. This includes the track, the 3 strap assemblies, and all supplied hardware. The KX1130 aluminum track version weighs approximately 27 pounds.

  • What is the webbing material made of?
    The webbing is polyester for high strength.

  • What is the finish on the metal components?
    All of the metal hardware and strap components are finished with zinc plating for corrosion resistance. The steel tracks are painted with a commercial gray primer. The aluminum tracks are bare aluminum.

  • Why are the threads of the bolts different?
    The bolts used to mount the strap end plates to the tracks use 1/2-20 threads while the 2” long bolts to go through the deck use 1/2-13 threads. This is so there can be no confusion about which bolts are to be used where.

  • How tight should the ratchet fasteners be tightened?
    They should be tightened as tight as you can tighten them with your hands without mechanical aids such as “cheater” bars.
