I thought about making and selling them. I can put one together for less than $6. Shipping costs would not be worth it for a small order.

I could ship them out through my companies Fedex account. About $5-$6 dollars any where in the continental US. I think I am going to make some brackets also. Or I'll just make some for myself and tell people how to do it.

My local fastenal did not have the t-nuts in stock, neither did the hardware store. But Rockymounts is local and had these in stock:


Nice thing, you don't have to take the existing cleats out to put them in, they can fit in if you angle them through the bed rails.

I bought conduit clamps, put wing nuts on them and sprayed them with plasti dip.


I put a washer between the rail and the conduit clamp just for extra room, I sprayed those with plasti dip too.

Works like a champ and clears the cap. Plus the plasti dip keeps the shovel from rattling.

Those look damn good!
What did you make those out of those? The ones I got from Fastnel (black ones) are starting to rust...

Inconel 625, with EDM threads. That's what all the cool kids use these days.

You might email these guys and ask where they source their aluminum T-nuts; I doubt they make them in-house They aren't quite as pretty as our friend's, but they'll work fine. Just make sure you use anti-seize compound or something similar to keep the threads of a non-aluminum bolt from corroding with the T.

Any chance you'd do a run of aluminum t-nuts with the appropriate metric thread? I can't be messing around with this inch crap.
