Today we'll be reviewing and showing you how the Brophy Stake Pocket Sliding Camper Tie Downs, part number TDSF, will fit on most trucks. These adjustable stake pocket tie downs will mount permanently in the stake tube of your truck for a tie down that is always ready to use. They have three removable spacer tabs that allow a custom fit for most pickups and a tab lock that anchors the tie down to the truck rail to prevent lifting and twisting. We'll begin our review by showing you how to install it onto our truck. To do this we'll slide the stake of the tie down into the stake pocket of our truck making sure that the black tab is facing the center of the truck bed. The spacer bars may need to be pried off if necessary to fit the size stake pocket of your truck.
Now with the tie down seated firmly in the pocket, we'll drill two 7/32-inch holes through the pocket about four inches from the top. Now for todays demonstration we will not be drilling and permanently securing this stake, but just showing you how to drill the holes and where. We'll then use the two lag bolts to thread into the holes that we just drilled putting pressure onto the stake. We'll now drill an 11/32-inch hole through the anchor tab and install the hex bolt. Now that we have our hole drilled through the bracket, we can move to the underside of the vehicle where you can see plastic paneling near the wheel well.
Removing this will allow you to open up a space for you to reach your hand up to thread on our washer and nut. You may need an extra set of hands when doing this part of the installation. Now with our camper tie down secured to our bed rail of our truck, we'll demonstrate how to tie your camper down with the tie down hardware package, part number TDHP, and we'll do this by taking the turn buckle, setting the chain on the hook on one end of the turn buckle, and then taking one of the s-hooks, putting the small end of the s-hook into the chain. We'll then take the other end of the s-hook and starting from the outside of the tie down which we'll slip into the hole, and with the camper positioned on to the tie downs you can simply turn the cam buckles which can either loosen or tighten to give you the best fit to your camper. Quick Tech Tip: Over-tightening the turn buckles may cause unnecessary stress to the camper and your truck.
That will complete todays review of the Brophy Stake Pocket Sliding Camper Tie Downs, part number TDSF.

The tie-down hardware package worked great. Nice and flexible, for matching the camper's layout. I might replace the S-hooks with threaded chain repair links, but for now, teh kit was complete and worked fine. 221337

I found that the chains were too short and too light weight for the job. I had to replace them before I could haul the camper. 94358
On-line ordering was very easy and seemed solid. The order was received on time and was well packed for shipping. The product is well made and works as advertised. However, somehow, the billing address and shipping address were reversed, which was NOT a good thing because they are about one thousand miles apart. The email order confirmation I received, immediately, on ordering, alerted me to the discrepancy in shipping and I contacted customer service right away .eTrailer provided excellent customer service in correcting the shipping problem and getting the order to me. I have used eTrailer over the years and have always received excellent products and service. I highly recommend eTrailer for your needs. JM2C 326559
I bought this set originally to buy a used camper from out of town and get it home. My plan was to buy something more permanent like Happijac. Once I put these on though, I decided they were plenty strong and would most likely work permanently so I'm going to run with that for a few months and see how they work. I am using spring loaded turnbuckles instead of these though. They were easy to install and work with the factory bedliner that stops below the bed lip, no drilling is also a bonus. My camper is a Hallmark popup 8ft long and weighs just under 1800 lbs. 159360

I have not installed these tiedowns on the truck yet. Too busy building fence right now. However, after looking at them, holding them, setting them on the truck rail, I would imagine these tiedowns would hold an aircraft carrier to a dock. Holy crap, these suckers are strong, quality material. I will let you know when I get them installed. I hate RVing with a passion, this is the wife's deal, not mine. I spent a career all over the world flying jets and I just want to effing stay home now. :) 135722

Bought these to go with Brophy Camper Hold Downs (Item HSSF). They shipped quickly, were packaged with the tie downs and worked well. The S hooks and turnbuckles were extremely adjustable and worked well to transport our truck camper. Combining them with the Brophy Camper Hold Downs allowed a versatile way to connect the camper to our truck. It gives us the flexibility to use it with other campers and trucks. 156969

I am extremely pleased by the professional handling of my order. The website for ordering was clear and simple, the prices were fantastic and customer service/followup was second to none. Shipping was quick and on time with no back orders. A big 5 stars goes to etrailer.com Buying online can be a great and satisfying experience, thanks again to all the special employees at etailer.com James G Canada 154117
Very strong brackets. Bolt holes could use "TWO" (with a little precision tolerance) slots to hold the bolts steady so the Nylock Nut doesn't twist and you have to use an end wrench. Also, the brackets could be sold in a longer version of length so you can use a Heavier Duty Turnbuckle. those are my only changes I would like to see. I really do like the versatility of the Brophy Tiedowns. 320007

I needed this kit to secure my recently acquired 1991 Coachmen Ranger truck camper to my truck. After looking around I found this kit in stock at etrailer.com at a reasonable price and ordered it. Great communications all the way to delivery and a follow-up email the next day. The kit looks exactly like the info on the website said it would. Completely happy from start to finish. 289761

By all means, consider these turnbuckles if you are spanning a space between 7 5/8" and 19 3/4" from tie-down eye to the bracket on a small to medium camper. Simple, tough, adjustable, good quality. I suppose that the spring-loaded models may be better for some applications, but the idea of much springing going on back there is not too appealing to me! 325818

The turn buckles and S hooks are great, heavy duty and built to last. The chain that came with it is pretty small, they might hold the 3000 lbs as advertised, but don't look like it. I had to get longer chain for my back mount, just got it from the hardware store and the chain rated at 3000 lbs looked a lot more heavy duty. 271079

I was very pleased with the knowledge your sales person has. Told my what I needed and why. Mounts are better built than I expected. Low cost and fast shipping. My slide in camper is mounted and ready to go. I will buy whatever I may need from etrailer. Com Thanks for the fast service. Ronald R. 315297
A great kit with everything I need for a tie down package. Nothing fancy, but saved my time at the hardware stores searching for a double hook turnbuckle with a sufficient weight rating and waiting to cut 4 small sections of chain. I doubt I could piece it together for the same price either. 117756

I've had the chance to deal with these guys a few times now. I have to say they have been very helpful and quick to get me what i need . I will definitely return any time I have trailer or towing needs ! Thanks again ! And keep up the good work . Bob 180420

Did not need to use the chains on my 2003 Toyota Tundra set up. Did have to grind a little off the hooks for optimal fit. Turnbuckles do not 'tighten' to an end point, as they pull up on the mounting bracket, but did hold load securely. 126808

You have a great information page, told me all the details. I haven't installed them yet but i'm sure they will work just fine. Quality is good and price is the best I could find. Free shipping and quick service also a plus. 122632

The camper tie-down hardware package will work well the hold-downs and they are also heavy duty constructed. I am well pleased with all the products I purchased from etrailer.com. They have excellent customer service and delivery. 34827

Appears to be a good quality and good value for the price. Have not yet attached my '73 Rocky Mountain 8' camper to my '65 F100 pickup with the also purchased Brophy stake mounts. 229780
This item is unmatched in price and quality found in any big box store. I do not understand how etrailer does what they do and still stay in business. Great product and company. 124391
by: Doug VA07/10/2016
Good product for the price. Used to install a 1000 pound camper on my 2014 Ram 1500 pickup. I did not need the chains, but all the other parts worked without a hitch. 270424
I might sugget cap screws (socket head) on the brackets for those that can't get behind the bracket to turn a wrench but can get a wrench on the nut to hold it. 64466
by: Nick L.04/30/2012
Great value, but the turnbuckles could be of a little better quality. Worked great to secure my 1983 Sunlite Pop-up camper to the bed of my 1997 Dodge Dually. 38858
by: Jason H03/10/2014
I got what I ordered, it was a quick implementation, and my camper is definitely more secure on my truck bed because of this reasonably priced kit. 120065

Fast delivery, installed rite away on to my 1997 Ford F350 dually in about 20 minutes, very easy and all parts were there... Thank You! 170739
Nothing wrong with the tie down hardware they were a little to long for my application. Had to move my anchors on my camper. All good 149227
by: Ryan H.09/14/2015
Great sturdy product but doesn't fit the 2007 and later Toyota Tundras and will not work with plastic bed-liners and bed-rail caps. 225418
You can not go wron with these Tie downs. Great Item and very fast shipping. Thanks very much. 100% HAPPY jOHN 69645

I'm using these as backup tie downs and they appear to be a great alternative if needed. Easy to install and use. 189728
by: Jonathan S.03/23/2015
Purchased these with the stake pocket tie down kit, they work together seamlessly. Fair product, fair price. 180428

by: Bernard Belliveau06/04/2014
Very satisfied with camper hold down but had to modify the Tie down hardware to suit my truck. 134297
by: Robert S01/03/2017
Used these to attach a camper to my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500. They worked great, and are well made. 331454
Sturdy, Low price, threads have a lot of play, wobble, hope it does not degrade strength. 96936
by: Skip H.06/30/2011
The tie down hardware are a great buy, much less expensive than I could duplicate locally. 18315
by: Paul M.04/24/2015
Top Quality. I installed them in like 10 minutes and worked well on my 1997 Ford F-150. 187839
by: Brad T08/20/2015
Nicely built, but the turnbuckles were too long for a 1988 Lance 980 on a 1998 dually. 220622
by: Liz Z10/17/2014
Ordered these with the tie downs, everything came at the same time and in great shape 156525
Thank you we have searched all over for these items and found these at great price 181386
