    They are a T-40. I changed mine out a while ago for the Charvonia Design tie downs.

    If you plan on modding the bed much, Home Deopt sells a multi-pack if T-sizes, including T30 (the small black bolts on the bed sides), T40 (the black bolts on the bed floor and the handles you mentioned) and T55 for the big white bolts on the bed floor. $30 for those and a few more. Otherwise about $5 (Home Depot) or $8 (Lowes) each.

    I posted that they are not the right size, it was just an example of a showy type like like the one he purchased.

    Home Depot has a $30 multi-set ... multiple sizes for all of the bolts in your truck bed.

    Be advised that the side cleats only attach to the bed, not any support/etc behind them, so I only have three milk crates strapped to them. I put d-rings on my front bed bolts and tie heavier stuff to them and to my bed rail tie-downs.

    I bought the red powdercoated version. They have a textured finish.

    To each their own I guess. I prefer a quality product over something that has poor quality. The fit and finish is great and they work better than the plastic ones or the galvanized tie downs.
