Video Transcript for Review of HappiJac Camper Tie-Downs - LC182897

Michael: Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the HappiJac Replacement Spring-Loaded Turnbuckle.This is going to replace one of the spring-loaded turnbuckles on your HappiJac Qwik-Load turnbuckle set. As you know, a turnbuckle is going to secure your camper to your truck. The one hook is going to attach to your camper, the other hook is going to attach to the anchor point provided by your truck's tie-down system, so that your camper is nice and secure to your truck. It's not going to roll, sway, or anything like that. It's going to give you a much smoother ride and keep your camper attached.The spring action of this particular turnbuckle is going to help prevent any sort of damage to your camper by reducing the stress on the camper when we have it tightened down.

If we we're to hit a bump or something like that, the the stress that would be involved in that is going to be reduced by this spring action.The removable handle is going to make it much easier to quickly attach and detach from our camper. The spacing here is going to prevent our knuckles from getting smashed when we're opening and closing our turnbuckle. You'll see the rubber cushion here. Like the original, it's going to provide comfort, not only when gripping, but also to help give us a little bit of separation from the metal. Whether it's hot or cold outside, it will be nice to have that little bit of insulation there.It can be detached so that it'll be easier for storage, and to prevent any sort of theft.

You also have the locking pin. We can insert, it's going to keep our turnbuckle in place, but it can also be removed so that we can quickly remove or attach our turnbuckle.This threaded arm here it's going to be about, right about 11" long. Might be a little bit closer to 10-7/8, but I tend to be kind of picky on that sort of thing. The turnbuckle altogether, your max operating length, once you have a few of those threads in there, so your max operating length would probably be right about 25". It'd get very boring for me to thread this all in here, but your minimum operating length is going to be about 21-1/8".This is the same quality steel construction as the original.

It's got the reinforced 1/2" solid steel rounded hook, and the same 4000 lb weight capacity as the original. It is made here in the USA by HappiJac, so you know it's going to work well with your current system.That's going to complete our look at the HappiJac Replacement Spring-Loaded Turnbuckle.

etrailer is great. Every time I talk to them, they are patient, courteous and knowledgeable. My turnbuckle arrived promptly, but was missing a part. I called etrailer. They did not send me to HappiJac. They said they would take care of it. They called HappiJac and had them sent the missing part right away. Great service.



by:

Had to add chain and shackles to bottom to make it long enough to work on my truck camper

  • Can the Minimum Length of HappiJacs be Reduced by Cutting Some Off of Threaded Turnbuckle?
    I contacted the manufacturer to see if The HappiJac Front Turnbuckle Quik-Load turnbuckles # LC182897 could be shortened by cutting some length off of the threaded end. I suggested that you were considering cutting the rod straight, deburring the end and chamfering it. They said that this had not been tested so they could not recommend it. This probably would work, but we can't guarantee it as it has not been tried before. I have attached a video review of this product.

  • How To Tell When HappiJac Turnbuckle Needs Replacement
    According to my contact over at Lippert, when you attempt to clamp down the HappiJac Qwik-Load Turnbuckle # LC182897 if the spring has spring or is weak the buckles will turn a lot easier than one that is fully operational. If you've got one that's closing a lot easier than the others then you've likely got a worn spring and you can replace the turnbuckle with the # LC182897. It should An entire set of 4 turnbuckles is available with part # LC182895.

  • Could Happijac Turnbuckles Secure Camper to Flatbed Truck
    Assuming the tie down locations of your flat bed truck are built strong enough there's no reason you couldn't use turnbuckles like the Happijac Original Turnbuckles part # LC182901 that you referenced. Or for the spring loaded version the part # LC182897 for front and # LC182896 for rear.

  • Correct Happijac Tie Down Kit for 2011 Ford F-250
    I checked with Happijac and the kit you need for your 2011 Ford F-250 is the part # LC182910-182971 for the tie downs and then for the turnbuckles # LC182897. This is a much better setup than a stake pocket attachment for a camper so I would not recommend the stake pocket route. It's much more secure and much more stable.

  • Replacement Turnbuckles That Won't Loosen While Driving for F-150 With 2001 Four Wheel Hawk Camper
    If you need a length of 12" I recommend the TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles # TLS9000. These have an adjustable length of 9" - 13". They have a spring-loaded design to reduce stress and won't loosen up over time as you drive. You're pretty limited at that length so I would double checking the measurement. Something like the # LC182897 from the HappiJac Qwik-Load Turnbuckles # LC182895 you looked at would be a great option that will remain secure and is easy to adjust with the levers....

  • Recommended Camper Tie-Downs For A 2014 Ford F-150
    If your 2014 Ford F-150 doesn't have running boards that extend under the bed then you can use the TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Custom Frame Mount - Front # TLF2017 and Rear # TLF3005. If you do have running boards that extend under the bed then you can use the HappiJac Camper Tie-Downs - Custom Bed and Bumper Mount - Front and Rear # LC182860 instead. To complete your setup you'll need turnbuckles as well, like part # TLS9020 for TorkLift Tie-Downs or four of part # LC182897 for the HappiJac...
