    Can someone point me to the thread that I've seen before in here where a member made some home made bed rail cleats or what ever they were? I want to make some but now I can't find the post.

    There have been a couple of guys who have added d rings under the bed rail for more tie down points. Haven't seen anyone who has made their own cleats. :popcorn:

    Not really home made cleats... but was this what you were thinking of?

    Go to granger or fastenal and get TECO part # 41406 T Slot Nut 38/16 X 9/16. I bought some, 5 were less than $20 and I had them within a week. Then go to home depot or lowes after you get them and find either rings or hooks or bolts, whatever attachment you want that screws in them and you are good to go...

    I put a couple of o rings on some and made a mountable box with the others. Pretty handy and relatively cheap. and my actual bed cleats are safely locked in my truck.

    one tip, spray them with WD-40 because they can rust.

    I'll post some pics soon as they upload.
