5 Stars to etrailer for their usual stellar customer service. I've always had a positive experience in my years of dealing with them. The attention to detail in your web site is so appreciated. The PDF Instructions you posted was a real help since the manufacturer's printed material that came with the kits was not legible due to over inking in the printing process.

I did subtract one star from the product simply because I was caught off guard when we picked up our new camper. The supplied chain with the kit did not reach the tie down points between the camper and Torklift frame mount bracket for the front pair of mounts. Luckily, I had a short length of chain and 3 additional split links in the truck with me and was able to "jury-rig" a temporary solution. The rear connections worked as advertised. I realize that this is Torklift's issue, not etrailer's, but I've noted it here for the benefit of others.

For the record, the camper mounts were very typical for campers of this size. It was a 2018 Travel Lite 840 SBRX model and our truck is a 2016 Ram 2500HD short bed (6'-5"). Photo IMG_4966 shows this required modification.

The instructions say that the tie down links should be tightened until the loop has pulled away from the housing by 18th of an inch. I cannot get the loop to move at all. I dont want to over tighten the tie down and cause damage but the loop has never moved above the housing. They still seem to hold the camper in place but theres no way I can tell that theres a spring involved in the system.



by:

I use these to reduce the stress on the camper when it might rock side to side suddenly.
The springs seem very stiff since when I tighten on the turnbuckles it takes a lot to compress them just a tiny amount, and this is good. I would not want the springs to be compressed to easily.
I mounted the springs at the camper up front, and at the truck tiedown point on the rear because is just what I had to do to make it fit.
I put 30,000 miles on these with no issues, and a few trips down off-road locations that bumped the truck all over and the camper held fine.
I cannot really tell you any difference between chains and chains with the spring, but I like the peace of mind knowing there is allowance for the TC to move before breaking something.



by:

I have installed the tie-downs and all is well. Have not road tested them, yet.
Will send another after a test.



by:

Based on MI I bought these for an '85 camper sitting on a '95 F-250 last year. Toured the western US for 2 months and then drove to NH and back with zero concerns. Excellent product. Highly recommend...

A year out and almost 15,000 miles on this hardware. No complaints and everything is working as it should...



by:

This system for securing your slide in camper is really good. Instalation is straight forward. Highly recommend.



by:

Put together haven't used yet haven't bought the camper yet



by:

Chains too short, no enough hardware to do the job



by:

Tie downs work great. Less than 1/2 the price of happijacks.



by:

Not much to say....they're chains and turnbuckles. Good quality!!



by:

Very well built. Easy install if you are mechanically inclined.
Overall a very nice product.



by:

I'm still thrilled with the TorkLift SpringLoad Turnbuckles - they've been EASY to use, give me a much better sense of stability than I had with non-spring turnbuckles, and meet the warranty requirements of my camper. I bought 2 sets to have the spring mounts on all four corners of the camper. I have the camper on and off the truck regularly and when remounting the camper it's very simple to adjust the tension to the correct level on the turnbuckles. I'm a big TorkLift fan... these do a great job at an excellent price.



by:

Works well, no complaints there. Slightly expensive, also instructions could be better!



by:

Great easy install, only the chain carabiner quick link didn’t fit the chain, so just widened it with a punch.



by:

Seems expensive for what it is, but I think it is worth it for the peace of mind you get when you see them installed. Very sturdy and secures the camper down well. One thing I did notice though is it seems like the bolts should be a little bit longer so there are more threads beyond the end of the nut when installed.



by:

Is what it is. I wish you could buy just the spring cartridges.



by:

Nice product but very expensive, like most other Torklift products. I only needed the spring load portion but had to buy the turnbuckles and chains which I won't be using. Sure wish Torklift had a competitor.



by:

etrailer experience was top notch. Easy ordering, prompt shipping and item received without damage. Installation was very easy with great directions including pictures. Have used tie downs for a year and everything remains sturdy and without problems. Highly recommend.



by:

An excellent solution for tying down a camper with all the benefits of spring loading without the expense of the upscale FastGun products.
They don't take long to hook up at all, and they will protect the warranty on TorkLift tie downs, which require the spring loading.
Simple, good quality, and simple to install and tighten.



by:

Best tiedowns



by:

I like the spring load but the turnbuckle lack a little....



by:

I installed the Torklift turnbuckle system and I am very pleased with the safety and security of this when used with the Torklift Tie Downs. Looking forward to the first real test on the road.



by:

Overall this product works well and easy to install. I do not rate it excellent because as others have stated the chain provided was not long enough. If you have more than 43" between anchor points you will need to extend chain. Also when I called tech support I was put on hold for 10 minutes then prompted to leave a call back number, which I did. I never got a call.



by:

The tie down chains worked as they should. Not as nice as the fast guns, but a lot cheaper.



by:

This review is more for the prompt service provided by etrailer.com. I received my product two days after my order with free shipping and in great condition. As for the product, it is complete and exactly what I ordered and much cheaper than other products. This item will also make sure that my Torklift equipment will stay in warranty and still keep my camper ties in good shape. Thanks etrailer.



by:

Perfect for our cabover camper! There was mistake on our first order and Etrailer made good on a replacement. 5 star customer service! Will definitely keep ordering from these folks!!

  • Are the Torklift Basic Turnbuckles Spring Loaded
    Yes. The TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs - Qty 2 # TLS9000 are spring loaded so they'll work well to allow the camper to shift around slightly while not being too rigid on the frame. These do a great job when used with Torklift tie downs, so if you also need those just let me know what the year, make and model of the truck is and I can help you locate the correct parts for that. I've linked a review video of these turnbuckles for you to check out, as well.

  • Torklift brackets and Happijac Tie-Downs Too Short
    Please review the TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs, Qty 2, # TLS9000. This kit lets you easily secure your truck bed camper to your TorkLift frame-mounted tie-downs, the spring-loaded barrels help minimize stress on tie-down points with steel turnbuckles. You can use a length of chain with what you have, or return and purchase a longer size tie-down component.

  • Length and Load Rating of TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles # TLS9000
    The TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles # TLS9000 actually have an adjustable length of 9 to 13 inches. Just the spring-loaded barrels measure about 4 inches. The two included chains are 24 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. I spoke with my contact at TorkLift regarding a load rating for the turnbuckles and he said that they do not have a specific weight capacity but they are constructed so that they can support "the largest truck campers in the industry". I have attached a short video...

    While the TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs - Qty 2 part # TLS9000 are awesome to prevent the overloading or twisting we can sometimes get. They are not available as just the barrels. They are sold as a kit to make it easy to add to your current setup.

  • Load Rating On TorkLift Turnbuckles For Camper Tie-Downs
    The turnbuckles part # TLS9012 are replacement parts for the turnbuckle kit part # TLS9000. I contacted TorkLift and the tech told me the TorkLift Turnbuckles are designed to hold down 600 lbs as a pair and 300 lbs individually.

  • Is Camper Turnbuckle TLS9000 Needed to be Used with TLS9522
    To use the Torklift Turnbuckles part # TLS9522 that you have you do not also need the # TLS9000. These kits essentially do the same thing and both would not be required.

If you are looking for the complete setup, you may be interested in the TorkLift AnchorGuard Derringer Turnbuckles for Truck Camper Tie-Downs - Stainless Steel - Qty 4, # TLS9020 or the more basic setup is the TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs - Qty 2, # TLS9000.

  • Recommended Truck Bed Camper Tie Downs 1998 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck Dually 8 Bed
    I may have an option for you but none of the Brophy Truck Bed Camper Tie Downs are designed to work with trucks that have dual rear wheels. This has to do with the construction of the internal bed side on models with dual rear wheels. Most trucks that have dual rear wheels do not have the raised center panel required for the truck bed tie downs to mount to. The only other option you have to secure a truck bed camper to your truck would be to use a set of frame mounted tie downs. In order...

  • Recommended Camper Tie-Downs For A 1984 Chevy C30 Pick Up Truck
    Since there aren't confirmed fitting TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs for your 1984 Chevy C30 you'll need to use a clamp-on style like the Brophy Clamp On Camper Tie-Downs # HSAB. You'll need to measure the bedrails to ensure that these tie-downs will fit correctly and not come in contact with the exterior side wall of the bed. I've attached the dimensions of these tie-downs for you below to measure you bed with. If you have stake pockets you could also measure to see if the Brophy Stake Pocket...

  • Can Brophy Camper Tie Downs Handle a 3,300 Pound Camper in a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500
    There is no weight capacity rating on the camper tie downs # HSSF and they will work for any camper size that is properly sized for your vehicle. The associated hardware package # TDHP does have a weight capacity of 3,000 pounds so you wouldn't use it. Instead you could use 2 sets of # TLS9000. Ideally though you would use frame mounted tie downs custom fit for your 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500. If you want to explore that option I have included a link to them for you.

  • Options for Turnbuckles For Torklift Tie-Downs on 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 Short Bed
    We do have other turnbuckles available besides the FastGun like the # TLS9529-2-LK. These are a more premium option, and popular because they are so easy to use. They also lock to help protect from theft. For more economical turnbuckles I recommend the # TLS9000 or the # TLS9050A. The # TLS9020 you looked at are not for use with TorkLift frame-mounted tie-downs, so they won't work with your setup.

    So the TorkLift AnchorGuard Turnbuckles # TLS9013 won't actually work with frame-mounted tie-downs like you have on your 2002 Ford F-350. For turnbuckles that work with frame-mounted tie-downs, what you will need is one of the following options from TorkLift. - TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles for Camper Tie-Downs # TLS9000 - TorkLift SpringLoad XL Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLS9050A - TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs # TLS9529-2-LK Please...

  • 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....

However, since you already have TorkLift tie-downs in front, you'll need the frame-mounted tie-downs for the rear as well in order to utilize turnbuckles from the same manufacturer to maintain compatibility.

The TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs part # TLT2307 and part # TLT3306 are what I recommend which are a better option as they don't require drilling for installation. The TorkLift Basic SpringLoad Turnbuckles part # TLS9000 (Qty. 2) can be used to complete the setup.

This is a confirmed fit for your vehicle as long as you don't have the factory trailer hitch receiver.
