    man all i want are a couple more cleats for my rails. i'd even prefer the mini cleats, or the small ones with hooks underneath...
    the big ones, IMO, don't give much clearance having that burly knob inside the loop.
    the small ones are perfect- the whole loop turns like a knob.

    but the small ones seem hard to find, and everywhere i look, any cleats are way too pricey for a chunk of plastic.
    they're trying to sell singles for $30,pairs for $50, sets of four for $80 to $100.
    everywhere.

    anybody find a better deal? anybody have any to sell- cheaper than $25 a peice?!
    i'd love to have a set of at least six minis and i'd be willing to give up my four large to do it.

    nothing good on ebay right now. no minis, and only two minis with hooks for $47
    i'm not gonna spend $150 plus shipping for six of them right now.
    i guess i'll have to sometime.

    What do you want to use them for? I honestly rarely use mine as the D-rings are stronger. Since I added 4 more D-rings they are more useful than the cleats. I didn't use them for a couple years until we got a dog, and now I just loop her leash through one to keep her from jumping out the back.

    You can do 4 extra d-rings for less than $20 via the thread in my sig.

    what to use them for? heh, not sure, but i just want the option,
    i'd also like to use a large cargo net from time to time,and otherwise the tacoma has nothing for one to grab onto at all points.

    i guess more than anything, i'm surprised there aren't any companies making aftermarket cleats that work with our rail system.
    are there? i can't find any.
    thanks for putting up with my whining :D
