Default Stake Pocket Anchors or Tie Downs

Stake pocket anchors....found this, but it appears to be too big for the stake pockets in my 2010 FX4:

I didn't open the package, but did compare the stake pocket opening to the anchor....anchor was too big by about 3/4 to 1 inch.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Dave

Do you not have the anchors inside the bed in the corners? I use mine all the time with one of those 'spider web' looking bungee cords deals. I also use the ratchet straps on those anchors with no problem.

I had them on mine when I first got the truck, you need to tip them into the holes, they will fit, make sure the screws are all the way loose.

I guess you're right. Those can only hold so many hooks...

Tekton makes good stuff in my experience. I have a pair of 10" needle nose pliers they make that I've basically been using as a heavy duty drift pin at work. And as narrow as that nose is on those things, they have not deformed yet.
But it seems like Tekton is basically a distributor because I see other mutt companies selling allot of the same stuff. Tekton just doesn't jack up the price.
