    Eric:

    This is a great thread. I am surprised it wasn't done 5 years ago - it is so helpful.
    I am a proponent of having the bolt in the rail and the nut outside. That way you can easily check if any bolts and nuts have loosened off by a visual inspection.

    What do you have behind your rail? A strip of aluminum?

    That's part of my Access Literider tonneau cover. It comes with spacers that bring rails forward and the cover brackets are installed behind it so you can still use the rails fully.

    Edit: And I agree with you. The bolt and the nut does seem like a nice option, especially if you use a 5/7" stainless steel nylon insert nut like this.....assuming of course that whatever you want to bolt to the rail is big enough to take bolts that size. If not then the 9/16" T-Slot nut with a 3/8" bolt appears to be the solution.

    If someone comes up with the Mfg part numbers on this stuff, I might be able to buy this stuff at huge discount. Post up the numbers and the suppliers and I will check to see if I can help. I have no interest in making any money on this and I have no interest in making 50 trips to the post office. If I can help I would like someone to buy the pack of 50, or 100 and take it from there. I have access to the T-bolts, nuts and the channel nuts with and with out the springs. Again I would only want to help one person that was willing to take it from there. They will be provided with the actual invoice for the material. I work for one the largest industrial supply company on the planet.

    I had too cut the cone down to fit in the track and the cone help find the hole for the bolts
    Bolts you want to use 1" long.
    I like use this bolt is make it harder to take the tool box.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    I made some. Get some flat aluminum bar from lowes or home depot, cut it to size, drill holes in it. Bam, done. It was like 15 bucks for 6 feet of it.

    3/4" table saw "T" slot bolts any wood working store should have plenty of them they are the same as the bolt in the hooks so you can just put them in the slot and turn them no need to slide them down the rail.

    after reading through this thread i decided to try some 5/8 1" tslot nuts. found some on ebay that were 1/2" coarse thread. used them to mount my n-fab carrier, the supplied hardware was weak and these worked perfect. no trimming at all near perfect fit. heres the pics:

    Outlaw7, that looks like a perfect fit. I thought 15/16 would be the max that we could put in the rail.

    Would you tell us the make and part # of these nuts ? I'd like to add it to the first post.
