I've used this a few times and it works great. I made it so it's definitely Beefed. It's not a lightweight flimsy item, it's simple, durable and trustworthy. 1 tie down goes to the leg with a hole at the end, and the other tie down goes to the truck's bed hook. Then wrap the bike's rear tire to it so it can't jump off. No heavy rust, only light surface on top of the channel, it's been in my garage. Perfect for a truck that has a bed full of offroad goodies or camping gear and a hitch on it.
