Default Re: How do YOU lock stuff in your bed?

Since my toolbox is always full of junk...

I installed 4 large U bolts to the bottom corners of the bed (2 in front 2 in back) so I can lock or strap down stuff inside the bed (when the tonneau cover is off).
Also have 4 tiedown points on the bed rails where I can lock or strap stuff in.

I'll see if I can get some pics tomorrow.

They're just 3" or 4" wide U bolts 1/4"x20 thread I believe. Not even galvanized, but they've been in there for years & there's only a little rust around the nuts & washers. Whenever I get around to spraying bedliner on the fenderwells, I'm going to clean them up & spray them too.

They came with a flat bracket that I mounted to the underside of the bed. Also added a few extra nuts on the top so the U bolts wouldn't pull all the way through. They come in handy for those ratchet straps.

I had some smaller U bolts in there for years, but they were hard to get rope & stuff through so I finally upgraded the truck & used the smaller ones on my trailer.

You know those things that you stuff inside those tubes so when people open the tube, they come flying out? I can't for the life of me remember what they are called, but I want to get some of those and put them in my tool box so if a thief were to open it, it would be like "SURPRISE! CHECK OUT ALL THIS AWESOME STUFF!"
I think your my hero hahaha.
