Thanks! I'm not that talented! As for measurements none on the package, but these are the smallest size i seen at lowes where they keep the truck bed tool boxes. I thought they looked ok without the plastic since its body color metal under it. I went tonight and picked up four more to do the rest so no more loose coolers for me!NVSteve wrote:And where's the picture of this? Nice job. Did those tie downs have any measurements/specs on the packaging? I'm just wondering if maybe one size smaller might fit with the plastic trim in place.GOTGOO wrote:One held me(183lbs) standing on the bumper leaning way out with a tie down hooked to it!
No you cant see them from the bottom it looks like a boxed section of body. As for noise i couldnt notice any at all, but i guess you could try plasti dip ive never used it though.myriad46 wrote:To prevent rattles, you could dip the loops in that tool-handle-goop.
If you drop the spare, can you see where the self-tappers came out on the bottom? (if so, you may want to silcone them) Would a nut and bolt be feasible?
I am looking for a solution to help secure my bag of hitch parts, so that if I get in an accident a 30lb bag of metal isn't flying around the interior. I use a tool bag to keep everything in. I had envisioned a solid tether, and then a small steel cable with a caribeaner (spelling?) that I could run through the handles.
Upgraded tie downs would be a good solution to this problem, but I'd want more than a self-tapping screw to hold it down.
