    this makes for an easy and clean way to mount a shovel/axe/similar item utilizing the bed mount system

    first you'll need a pair of quick fists

    http://www.endroad.com/index.php/quick-fist-mounts.html

    then a pair of t-slot nuts

    http://www.zorotools.com/g/00063230/k-G1777921/

    and finally a pair of 3/8" bolts (I used a round head hex socket)- I went 3/4" length, but I think 1" might be better

    you have to drill the hole out a little in the quick fist to get the 3/8" bolt in

    the parts

    I assembled the t-slot nut on loosely, opened up the rail and slid both quickfists in, get them to the right location and simply tighten- done :)
