    So i welded bandwagons spare tire Y strap to his bed cage and his ORW strap has no D rings or any metal securing pieces attached to it. You have to weld a tab with the strap around the tab just to secure it to the bed cage. The strap melted and i didnt like the setup very much and what happens if one broke and you needed to buy a new strap how would you secure it to the bed cage. Youd have to cut the tabs off and weld new ones on. What a terrible setup. So myself and my waterjet guy Ken came up with a tab that you can weld to your bed cage without your straps anywhere near it while welding. After it cools it slides in and has a locking plate that bolts in and secures it in place. A little lock tight and it stays in place. If you need a new strap it comes apart and a new strap can be put in its place.

    Tabs a 3/16 thick steel and bolts are stainless steel

    So heres the setup...
    1 set includes 4 tabs with all hardware and plates for $30.

    If i get a group buy of 20 or more sets i can save you guys $5 dollars a set.
