    Was looking for a slick way to mount recovery tools and devised this effective and inexpensive method. It's two pair of Quick Fist clamps mounted back to back through the bed divider mesh. Works like a charm and cost only $20. 20180728_184235.jpg 20180728_184434.jpg 20180728_184445.jpg

    Love my bed divider. I mount my bike fork mount, shovel, lights, etc. and can slide it up/down the bed as needed.

    Get one of those drop in screws to mount accessories to the top of the divider.

    What would you mount to the top? Would love to put my Maxtrax up there somehow.

    That looks like an easy solution. Did you just run a bolt through both sides and put a nut on it?

    I think it was one of the vendors on here that I saw come up with a nice mount to put their Maxtrax on their divider, but I haven't been able to find the picture lately.

    Hmm. Not sure how I would mount Maxtrax there. Currently, I have a Yakima bike fork mount on top of the bed divider. Depending on which road bike I take, I can slide the divider so that the rear bike wheel is pressed firmly against the tailgate.

    I switch to Rigid Ignite lights when camping. All possible by tslot nuts.

    Basically, our bed dividers are poor man’s molle racks.

    I use tslot nuts so they don’t have to be in permanently.

    Something like this. I’m not sure what the exact size is — https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D9BL28T/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_9R1xBbB7B08A4

    I'd do the Molle racks, but the bed divider makes way more sense for me as it does double duty.
