    I recently purchased a factory bed divider for my 2010 trd sport. Install was easy enough, but it does not seem to want to slide up the railing. Checked the instructions that were included which tells you to loosen all the threads but it still seems to be stuck at the wheel wells, anyone have the same problem?

    I have one on my 05 and I noticed that sometimes the square nuts on the bed divider that sit in the bed rail system can get caught in what seem to be drain holes on the underside of the divider. You should be able to manuipulate the square piece so that it is parallel with the bottom of the bed rail and gently slide the divider forward. Also, it tends to stick if it's not pretty straight in the bed. Hope that helps!

    Well written, cotaco05. Only other thing I would add is that I loosen the threads wayyy more than you would think of needing, which seems to help. This thread is giving me an idea to use the cargo divider as a place to mount shovels and hi-lift though (because I can use small strap through the mesh to hold everything)....

    Thanks penguins_cc . I think it would work well as a mounting platform for tools and the like. That's something I've been thinking about doing too. Let us know how it goes if you end up doing anything with it.

    I ground down the edges of the slider bolts so they don't get stuck in the drain holes. Works much better now.

    I have a Trifecta cover, which uses similar slider blocks in the track to attach the front of the cover to. I found that if I wrench the cover blocks on too tight that they crimp the inner edges of the track a little, and then are stubborn about sliding. I probably shouldn't have been quite so aggressive, but I was only using a small hex wrench, and I was assuming I didn't want to risk my cover flying off at 70mph. Anyway, I found that I needed to use something to punch the sliding block back into the track a little to make sliding easier. I didn't have to take the anchor off, just loosen it quite a bit, then tap it with heal of my hand to push the block/nut out of the crimp I had made.
