Pulltarps® Aluminum EZ-Mount Bolt-On Plate Assembly

By Pulltarps Marketing | September 11, 2023

Pulltarps® has changed the EZ-Mount™ Bolt-On Mounting Plate material from Steel to 6061 Aluminum.

Pulltarps EZ Mount device for dump truck tarp system application.

The new EZ-Mount™ Bolt-On Mounting Plate is made from 6061 Aluminum, which is a precipitation-hardened aluminum alloy, containing magnesium and silicon and is much lighter than steel.

  • Steel = 2 lbs.
  • Aluminum = ~3/4 lbs.

The new aluminum EZ Mount is rust-resistant, easier to install than steel mounts and can be welded onto Aluminum truck bodies. Changing over to Aluminum from Steel gives Pulltarps® full control of the production process, assuring that we’ll always have this item in stock! Pulltarps manufactures most the parts for our tarp systems in California, USA.
