HappiJac Original Turnbuckles

These HappiJac turnbuckles are recommended for use with HappiJac truck bed camper tie-downs (sold separately), but they can also be used with most other tie-down systems that accept J-hook-style turnbuckles. Unlike standard chain-style turnbuckles, HappiJac turnbuckles provide more stability and better control to prevent shifting of your camper during travel.


Simple, Manual Operation

To secure your camper in your truck bed, hook the threaded end of each turnbuckle onto an anchor point on your camper and then connect the non-threaded end to the tie-down anchor on your truck. Then simply hand-tighten each turnbuckle barrel for a secure connection.


Upgrade Anytime to Qwik-Load Operation

HappiJac Qwik Load Turnbuckle Handle

For faster operation, you can upgrade these standard turnbuckles with the HappiJac Qwik-Load system (LC182894). The Qwik-Load handles keep you from having to hand-tighten each turnbuckle, and they allow you to quickly and easily disconnect.

I bought 4 HappiJac turnbuckles to hold my truck camper on the back of my truck. They work great. Thank you etrailer.com for recommending a good quality, resonable priced product for my needs.



- LC182898
by:

Overall it’s a good place to start, I had to fabricate a spacer to make the drivers side front bracket fit and the rear clamp on the brace is a little bit questionable as to weather it will hold and sufficiently brace the bumper. I may change that attach method.



- LC182898
by:

It appears the front turnbuckles are going to be short. I should be able to fix it by adding a couple locking links.



- LC182898
by:

These were replacements for the originals from 2001. Nice quality and should provide good service for a long time. The front turnbuckles were still good, the rear ones had the rubber bushings inside deteriorate and needed replacing.



- LC182898
by:

Did the job I needed them for in securing my cabover. Easy to install and use. Had to add chain length to connect to frame so a longer ones would've been better.



- LC182898
by:

These appear to be made of quality steel, and are heavy-duty. They arrived rather quickly. Writing reviews before actually using the product is a fool's errand, so I'll stop now.



- LC182898
by:

They would not reach from tork frame mounts to camper tie downs. I would not have purchased if I new that.



- LC182898
by:

I’m a rancher and a picky one at that. Ordering seemed straight forward enough. The products arrived 2-4 days earlier than expected. The camper frame tie downs, 20 ton hitch, and all necessary hardware were in excellent condition and quality made products. Very nice.



- LC182898
by:

Nice simple design that functions well. I just got back from Ohio with my Camper and the tie-downs functioned perfectly at or maybe slightly above all posted speed limits. No problems. I installed these with Torqlift anchors and used some chain and quick links form TSC.

  • Torklift Turnbuckles for Ford F-250 with Capri Truck Camper
    Since you want to eliminate all rocking/movement I'd go with the Torklift Locking Fastgun Turnbuckles part # TLS9522-2-LK which are stainless steel, do not have springload which allows them to be very solid, and also comes with locks so that they would get stolen.

  • Best Value Camper Tie Downs for 2018 Toyota Tundra
    The Happijac camper tie downs and turnbuckles are the best value tie downs out there for vehicles like your 2018 Toyota Tundra. They are a higher quality setup that is also priced great for what you get.

The LC182898 actually fit versions of the Tundra from 2007 up to 2018 but it depends on how the vehicle is...

  • How To Install the HappiJac Qwik-Load Upgrade Kit for Standard Turnbuckles
    The HappiJac Qwik-Load Upgrade Kit for Standard Turnbuckles part # LC182894 is an excellent upgrade option for the HappiJac Original Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs part # LC182898. These are going to cut down dramatically on the time it takes to secure the tie-downs. In regards to installation, you can either cut the hooks off your existing tie-downs or you can just go pick up some 1/2" all-thread at a home improvement store which is very cost effective and readily available.

    The support braces in the HappiJac Truck-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # LC182860 are going to attach to the cross frame to provide support for the anchors which will bolt through the bed wall and into the braces. The rear anchors will bolt through the bumper. You'll also need some turnbuckles to properly secure your camper to your bed.

  • Will the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs HSSF Fit a 2012 GMC Sierra 1500
    Yes, the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs part # HSSF will fit a 2007-2014 GMC Sierra 1500 so they will work just fine on your 2012. The tie-downs will not be able to be installed at the very front and rear of the bed but this is due to the design of your bed rather than an issue with the tie-downs. That said, the turn buckles don't need to be perfectly straight so this won't be an issue. If you don't have turn buckles, I recommend the Brophy Basic Turnbuckles w/ Hardware part # TDHP. The...

  • Camper Tie-Downs for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 6.5 Bed with Steps and Factory Hitch
    The TorkLift options for your truck are the # TLC2220 for the front and # TLC3215 as long as your steps do not run under the bed. If they end at the cab, then these will work. If they do run under the bed, then instead you will want the HappiJac Custom Tie-Downs for Truck Bed Camper # LC350763-182971. This manufacturer is owned by Lippert Components who makes a majority of factory RV parts. You may also want the turnbuckles # LC182898 or the Qwik-Load Turnbuckles # LC182895.

  • Comparing Installations Of Camper Tie-Downs For a 2013 Ram 1500 With 6-1/2' Bed
    First of all the board or step underneath truck bed is referring to nerf bar or step that extends past the cab of your 2013 Ram 1500 to where it can also be used for accessing items in your bed.

  • Camper Tie-Downs for a 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty with a 6-3/4 Bed and a Factory Installed Hitch
    It looks like your 2006 Ford F-350 with the 6-3/4' bed has no rails under the bed and a factory installed hitch. For this configuration, you have two options, depending on the hitch. If your hitch has an open-ended crosstube, then the TorkLift set is your best option, part # TLF2007 for the front and part # TLF3004 for the rear. These tie downs do not require drilling, making them the easier installation. I've linked to video reviews of both. If your hitch does not have an open-ended...
