    Does anyone know of any metric T nuts that fit the bedrail tracks?

    I've see the below from hondogarage, they state 5/16-18 bolt AND M8 x 1.25mm thread in the description. But, either way, they won't work for my application as they are designed to rotate and I need the style that won't rotate as I slide them up and down.

    I want this style, but in metric. (or un drilled)

    I refuse to put imperial bolts on a metric truck (I don't carry imperial tools in the Tacoma) it's pointless. Also the bolt size this style are is silly 3/8-16, is way too big a bolt, and all versions I find seem to be the same. Hondogarage with 5/16 or M8 is a better size, just wrong style.

    I originally bought the regular steel black ones but they started to rust even though I painted them, found some stainless ones on Amazon that work great, they don't rotate and used stainless tamper proof bolts to go with them. Later today I can try to see if they show up somewhere in my past purchases and post a link unless someone else chimes in before then, cannot remember if they are metric or not though.
