Front Tie Downs
Torklift TRUE frame-mounted truck camper tie downs have four independent points that bolt directly to the truck frame. This dramatically improves stability and handling while hauling your truck camper and also prevents truck bed and bumper damage commonly found with bed-mounted tie down systems.
One of the biggest problems with ratchet straps is that you have no way of measuring the amount tension being applied to the tie downs on the truck. This is critical due to the fact that manufacturers require 300 pounds tension at each truck camper anchor point. Inability to measure the load being applied by the ratchet straps makes it very easy to damage either the tie downs, the truck frame or the camper’s anchor points if there is too much tension. On the contrary, when less than the proper tension is applied, the truck camper can shift and damage both the camper and the truck bed.
