Ready your truck to haul a camper with these sturdy tie-downs. Tie-downs mount in your truck's stake pockets. Sturdy steel has a corrosion-resistant black powder coat finish. Turnbuckles sold separately.
Installing these stake-pocket-mounted camper tie-downs is simple. Just place the tie-downs in the stake pockets of your truck with the tabs facing the center of your truck bed. Then drill 2 holes through both the pocket and the tie-down and use the included hardware to secure each tie-down to your truck. You will also need to drill through the top of the rail to secure the anchor tab of the tie-down.
Securing your Camper
In order to secure your camper to your truck bed, these tie-downs will need to be used in conjunction with a tie-down hardware package consisting of turnbuckles, S-hooks, and chains (TDHP - sold separately). This hardware attaches to the anchors on your camper and to the tie-downs on your truck to keep your camper secure. Once you tighten the turnbuckles appropriately, you will be ready to haul your camper.

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 stake pockets were easy to install with the hardware provided. The dealer I purchased my camper from asked where I had gotten the mounts and I told him about etrailer.com and he was impressed with the mount and tie-down package as an economical package. My only wish was that the powder-coating on the mounts would have been a little nicer, or the packaging a little better. There was a noticeable amount of nicks and scratches in the paint that detract from the appearance. Nothing that affects performance, just cosmetic appeal. 221336
The tie downs arrived quickly and were what I expected them to be with a reasonable price. My only suggestion might be to sell them in pairs instead of 4's. I have an application where I only need 2....Otherwise the etrailer site has worked very well for me. 121258

Installed easily. Had to us longer bolts for the back two posts on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 Quad Cab. Also, had to trim some the factory plastic bed liner. No big deal. I took it for a test drive and one of the back brackets seems to twist a bit. I loosed the turnbuckles a little and it is better. I guess I had them too tight. I will be taking the camper on a mini-getaway and will add any new developments. So far, very happy with the product! 268693

Slick as snot. Ordered late at night, shipped right away, received on schedule. VERY happy with etrailer. Thanks 81858
I was hesitant about getting these because I wasn't sure if they would fit. I have a '65 Chevy C-10 and was concerned they would not work because any more, everything is about all the new vehicles on the road, not the oldies. But after consulting with the people at etrailer, I ordered them and couldn't have been happier. I did have to remove the metal tabs (they pry off), but after that, I measured, marked, drilled, and installed the tie-downs in about 20 minutes tops. Loaded the camper and the tie downs worked great. Took it camping 4 times so far and the tie downs are still solid as a rock. Thanks etrailer! 248323

This set of Brophy stake pocket tie downs came with a note in the instructions that they would not work for any vehicle newer than a 2011. My RAM 2500 has the ABS bed caps on the side. I removed them and enlarged the stake pocket holes using the pre-stamped template on the bed caps. Once I reinstalled the bed caps, the camper tie downs dropped into the stake pockets. I had read other reviews that the lag bolts were prone to stripping out. So I drilled 3/8" holes through the bedside and through the camper tie downs. Then I welded a 3/8" nut on the backside of the camper tie downs. Now all is well and secure. I think this is a good product, and I prefer it over the Brophy camper tie downs that clamp to the lip of the bed. I just wish there was a securement method that didn't involve lag bolts. 307496

I am sitting in my slide in truck camper at a Rockport Maine campground. I just got a new truck and had to put these Brophy stake tie downs on before a scheduled trip, so I was in a hurry. The woman who took my order over the phone was extremely helpful and clearly wanted to help me to the best of her ability. The parts came on time as needed, with no delivery charge. This hardware is very nice, high quality stuff and it went on exactly as the video on the website demonstrated. I hauled my slide-in up here 250 miles and five hours and that camper stuck to the bed like glue. I am very happy all around with etrailer and Brophy for a great product and excellent service, I will definitely be using them when I need parts in the future. 145353
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 326558

I am a newbie to truck campers, we are thinking of selling our class c and found a pop-up slide in to see if TC's might fill our needs. I ordered these stake pocket tie-downs mainly due to their price being the lowest I found. I have to say I was a bit skeptical on their ability to hold down a camper. Customer service was very helpful and I received my order with lightning speed. I was impressed. The quality seemed great - very heavy steel and good quality work. I installed them with no trouble and today we made the 2 hour trip to pick up our new (to us) TC. The trip back went without incident, despite very high (60-70 mph) winds. I highly recommend this product. 33070

Quick delivery. And we got the product we wanted. Will use again and will recommend etrailer to others. 134096

fast. easy to find. no problems ! 59421

yet to be installed... I am positive they will be fine unlike the pressure inside bed tie-downs junk installed by Affinity RV in Prescott AZ. I asked to find and install this type when they put a 2005 lite Lance camper on my vintage 1969 F50. All young guys had no idea this is how to install on an old truck not in their computer. LOL When I hit the first bump they let go. I have kept in parked, once I move it I will find a local CO company to lift the camper off and do it right. Thank You for keeping touch.... 338747
The instructions said to drill a 7/32 hole through stake pocket and product then secure with lag screws. However the lag screws kept breaking so I enlarged the holes put in rivet nuts and secured using 5/16-18 bolts and the are now very stable and secure. It also stated to drill a 9/32 hole through the lip of the truck and install a nut and bolt. Again I installed rivet nuts and secured with a 5/16-18 bolt. This turned out to be much easier than the recommended procedure. 191769
They arrived in 3 days, fast fast fast. exactly what i expected, and heavy gauge steel. install was simple, drill a few holes and ratchet on the lags. total install time about 45 minutes. the removable spacers made a perfect fit. finally i feel my camper is safe and secure for the weekend getaways. great price, great product, totally satisfied. 209147
They came today. They are not fitted for a 2005 Dodge 1500 pickup They could not be installed as you suggested. The front upper bolts could not be used because the body is boxed in. The rear needs longer lag bolts and the TDHP hardware is to big to be used as you hoped. The slide in camper is now in the truck, I'm going to have to figure out how to hold the front down and be made safe. To bad, I had hoped for better. 203944
by: Janet K06/07/2012
I've been looking for these for a long time! They are perfect and work great. The service from etrailer was much better than I expected, the tie downs arrived in ONE DAY, which was about four days before I thought I would have them!! You have everything for campers that anyone could want and the pricing is wonderful. I highly recomend your company to my campimg friends and will be ordering more. Thank You 43091
by: Barry S.10/12/2015
Product was delivered timely and arrived well packaged and without shipping damage. Appears well constructed and durable. Installed easily without issue and simple instructions. Have not attached my '73 Rocky Mountain 8' camper to my '65 F100 pickup yet, but looks like it will be a solid mounting with the purchased turnbuckle/chain tie down package which was a good value for what was included. 229779
by: Don G08/02/2012
good time proven product, but we decided that using our gas guzzling v-10 was cost prohibitive so we opted for a diesel truck, and since its a 2010 we don't think these will work. Since we are going to need a tie down sys. anyway we were wondering if we could return these and get credit towards a different sys. 50257
by: tom s02/02/2017
These slid right in. I have drilled the holes and will bolt in the next few days. I was able to add a bolt from inside the bed for a little extra stability. Welds look decent and product was shipped in 2 days. excellent for the price. I hope to report back in a year after they have been put to good use. 337729
Just received the tie downs that I ordered.Very happy with quick and free shipping which came via UPS. Very happy on the price which was almost $40 less than other sites sell same thing for plus shipping charge. Now looking to get a camper to use. Will shop at Etrailer for more products in future. 317948

I have a small truck camper this works great. Saved me hundreds of dollars. Fast shipping. THANKS 104141
by: Albert S.06/05/2016
The tie downs are great quality and well built. I did have to modify my stake pockets a bit and use some longer bolts to anchor them down but I think they will work out well. I like that they are made in the USA. My truck is a 2001 full size Dodge Ram 2500. 257263
by: Jonathan S.03/23/2015
These do the job- no more, no less. I was able to modify these with their removable tabs to fit the narrow stake pockets on my '88 F250 with little hassle. Fair product, fair price. Used the appropriate camper tie down package with these too. 180427
by: Joe Crow06/20/2015
This product is just exactly what I was looking for , I don't have them on yet but they are heavier than I expected and will be proud to have the on my truck . I'll send a picture later to your E-mail , Thank You ...Joe ... 205781
by: Tammy W.12/17/2012
Have not put them on yet but we did receive them quickly and they appear to be what we needed/wanted. I will probably be ordering other things from "etrailer" in the future based on the ease of my recent purchase. 61662
by: Brian B.09/21/2012
A great website to make purchases from. They had a great price on what I was looking to buy, and they emailed me every step of the way until my package arrived at my door. I would highly recommend this company! 55434
by: Jim L07/06/2016
the camper tie downs arrived before expected date which was a plus, the instructions were easy to follow and installation was fairly easy. Thanks for a great product I will be installing my camper soon, 268602
by: Tim W.06/06/2016
When i received my order, the instructions cautioned not for use with 2011 or newer trucks. Mine is a 2011 Chevy. I was looking forward to trying out my camper project. Not this time. Thanks 258267
IT WAS NOT A PERFECT FIT LIKE THE VIDEO I SAW.SO I THINK IT IS THE WRONG ONE BUT I MADE IT WORK I JUST HOPE IT WILL BE OK.I PUT IT ON MY 2004 SILVERADO HALF TON SHORT BOX 4X4 Z71 191322
by: Guy P06/23/2014
These seem to be just what I needed. Their quality and appearance are as advertised. This is my second or third order for parts from etrailer. Nice doing business with you. 137135
by: JIM FOUTS07/21/2016
THE PRODUCTS RECEIVED ARE EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED AND EVERYTHING WAS PACKED AND PACKAGED VERY WELL AND RECEIVED TIMELY IN GOOD ORDER. THE QUALITY OF THE GOODS IS EXCELLENT . 274718
fit poorly into truck. didn't hold camper tight. you have to drill holes and the screws they give you are weak sauce. don't recommend product at all. total waste of money. 318465
by: Mark W.05/12/2015
I bought a smaller older slide in, cab over camper and these are just what I needed to stop the lifting I was getting from head winds. Easy to install and made in the USA. 192351
by: Steve K.07/16/2014
Service was great but the parts would not work with my make and model of truck (even though the Brophy fitment chart said they would). 141504
The camper tie downs worked perfect for my 1993 Ford Pick-up. I placed my order with etrailer on Monday, and by Friday I was installing them on my truck. 145986
Pickup camper stake rack hold downs: Product was well made and fit the application as intended. Arrived before the projected date. Highly recommended. 254563
This is a great product. They are made to fit most stake pockets just by removing a metal shim. I recommend. Great company to do business with. 243331
by: Randy B.08/31/2016
I received my order in just a couple days and installed it on my truck right away and everything fit perfect I will order from e-trailer again 289763
Didn't fit into my 2013 F-150 truck bed pockets as well as etrailer said the would. So I sold them and bought a torque lift kit instead 249583
This product was not only what I was looking for it was on time and worked well a big thanks to the person who helped me on the phone 91116
by: Nick N06/20/2015
The tie downs look great on our pickup. We did add a couple of extra screws through the bed and into the post for added stability. 205865
The items were as described and installed just as the video said. They had all the hardware needed to be installed. 213757
by: bob b02/23/2015
have used these before, work well for lighter campers. service was quick, packaged well and the best price I could find!! 175747
by: Kris S.06/11/2014
Item was shipped very fast. I installed them and they work perfect for my Lance camper, 10' 1". Great value for the price 135191

The product arrived quickly and in great shape. I would order from etrailer again and would recommend that to my friends 156524

Seems like a good product. They were easy to install and sturdy. Worked well with my 1998 Ford 1/2 ton. 45253
Installed easy enough on my 03 Silverado. Went camping this week worked great. AWESOME service. 149226
