Can you believe we are almost halfway through June? We certainly can’t – especially since that means it’s almost time for one of the holiday we love celebrating, the 4th of July! There’s no better way to honor our country’s independence than with a camping trip out in nature where freedom is key to being out on your own in a truck camper.

But, before you head out for your long weekend of camping, don’t forget to upgrade your truck camper tie down and turnbuckles. With Torklift Talon tie downs and FastGun turnbuckles, you’ll have the strength and stability to enjoy your freedom and go to all the rugged off-road camping spots that you love. Read below for more features of these products – which are on sale 10% off until Aug. 31, when you purchase two sets together to outfit your vehicle!

Don’t take our word for how easy the installation is though, watch this awesome fan made video of the Torklift Talon tie down installation:


The FastGun turnbuckle is the second part of the truck camper hold down setup. Designed to be spring-loaded, the FastGuns work best when they are tightened to the correct tension using the spring tension indicator, and when there is enough room for slight movement so the springs can work and do their job.

  • No. 1 selling patented quick disconnect turnbuckle in the world
  • Connects and disconnects in seconds - Quick release handle allows for easy tool-free adjustment
