DIY $50 cargo tie down system


Recommended Posts

I'm not one of those toys it in the bed kinda guys. I don't l like heavy stuff rolling around back there, and I don't like light stuff flying out!

I purchased a pair of Aluminum T-tracks 48" long, a pack of #8 drill tip screws, a 10 pack of stainless 1\4" thread lifting eye nuts, and 10 stainless 1\4" bolts.

 

I screwed the tracks to the side of the bed rail, insert the bolt in the track, and screw the eye nut down.

 

This have me 4' of adjustment on both sides of the bed and lots of loops to tie off, or bungee to.

I'll eventually add a rail on the tailgate, and the back of my toolbox.

 

Total cost was around $50
