Heavy-Duty Tie-Downs

Heavy-duty strength in a lightweight package: the TorkLift Talon tie-downs are the premium choice for heavy truck campers and unforgiving climates. Made of military-grade aluminum alloy, the removable arms are rustproof and robust while also being lightweight and easy to handle. The receiver brackets are constructed of rugged stainless steel, and both components are protected by a high-impact powder coat finish that guards against wear and tear.


A Safe Ride is a Comfortable Ride

If you're looking for the best tie-downs for your camper, frame-mounted is the way to go. The frame is the most solid part of your entire vehicle, so it just makes sense to attach your camper to something that's not going to warp, bend, or twist. Even more importantly, the camper's center of gravity is going to sit lower and its weight will be spread across the entire bed. This avoids a top-heavy load perched on top of your bed rails that's liable to sway and get pushed around by crosswinds. The camper's not going to shift or slide around while you drive; it's going to stay put, and your truck is going to handle just like it does without a camper.


Quick Tip: If you have a plastic or spray-in bed liner, it's important that you use a rubber mat under the camper to eliminate any sliding or bouncing.


Don't Ruin Your Truck's Looks

Frame-mounted tie-downs are also a great pick for preserving your truck's good looks. The brackets install on the frame, tucked nearly flush to the underside of the vehicle. Remove the arms from the brackets when you're not using them and the brackets will be barely visible.


Custom Fit, No-Drill Installation

Completely custom to your vehicle, the tie-downs attach to exisiting holes in your frame so that there's little to no drilling and no need for any modifications. Because they're custom, you'll want to use our in-house application guide to make sure you get the exact right model. The tie-downs you need might be different depending on what type of hitch or other accessories you have.


how to find the right tie down for my truck - custom camper tiedown

Securing Your Camper

TorkLift Talon Tie Down Example

Once the tie-downs are installed, use a set of turnbuckles (sold separately) to secure the camper to the tie-downs. The shank on each arm has 2 pin holes so you can choose how far out they extend, that way the turnbuckles can reach the anchors on your camper without making contact with your truck. Tighten the turnbuckles to the correct level of tension (not too tight!).


where to put camper tie downs

Make sure the anchor points are offset from the tie-downs instead of lined up with them so that they will hold your camper from multiple angles. This is important for keeping your camper from shifting. Two holes in the attachment plate of the tie-downs let you find the best angle for you camper anchors.

Video Transcript for A Look at the TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs

Hello neighbors, it's Brad from Etrailer and today we are at World Wide Technologies Raceway, and we're walking around taking a look at all of the trailers and all the different combos of rigs. And this one caught my eye. I love in-bed campers. I think it's an awesome way to get around and still be able to camp but also have the usability of a truck. You don't need a big old RV to tow things around. And we ran into Leroy, talked to him.

He's got the torque lift mounts here. And he's taken this to Colorado to visit family. And the fact that that holds that in place is key. With that camper, you're really gonna want that stability. The torque lift does a really good job of making sure you have solid points that mount it and keep the camper in place not moving as you're going down the road.

Now having the torque lift tie downs are gonna be essential for your in-bed camper. It's gonna bolt directly to the frame creating a mounting point that extends past the outside portion of the bed. And that way you can have your strut in place and anchor this down. You do have adjustability here with your jam nuts being able to really tension that down perfectly. And you're gonna have them on all four corners of your bed so it's gonna keep it nice and stable.

So I was talking to Leroy about his trips out west to Colorado with this, and a lot of what you're gonna get is gusts on the highway, and something that he did as a racer and fabricator, he made his own wedges inside of the bed to kind of keep that in place because your anchor guard torque lift does act as a little bit of suspension to kind of keep that in place. So that really keeps it nice and steady and just kinda make sure that even over rough and rocky terrain, it's gonna stay in place. Torque lift camper tie-downs come custom fit for your truck, like Leroy has here on his Ram. You'll want to use our fit guide here at Etrailer to ensure that you're getting the proper fit for the front and rear of your truck bed. While you're at it, be sure to pick up a set of torque lift turn buckles to make the connection between your in-bed camper and custom tie downs.

They're available in the traditional style like Leroy has and also as a locking fast gun turn buckle with quick release levers, making it fast and easy to secure your camper to your truck. An awesome day at World Wide Technology's Raceway. We got to meet lots of neighbors whether they be local or around the country right here in Etrailer's own backyard in Madison, Illinois. Now it's awesome to see them in their element with their race cars and we're happy to allow them to have the parts and accessories necessary to make sure that they have the best experience while towing their race cars around.

Great price and the product looks good. I haven't installed it yet.

Works as good as it did the first time out. Great equipment.



by:

The Talons and the fast guns are awesome products, fit and installation was very easy. The products have held up very well and will for a long time. The extra money spent for this set up was very worth it. It takes no time at all to secure the camper down and the fast guns have never needed adjustment after initial set up. ETRAILER was great to work with and followed up after sale. Products shipped quick and were in stock. They also had lots of information posted on YouTube to ease installation. Great company, great products by Torklift!



by:

Installed on a 2016 RAM 3500. No issues. These installed very easily but you'll probably want to use an air-impact gun to get the hitch/bumper bolts loosened.



by:

The tie-downs were a bit difficult to install for a novice but if you follow instructions closely they did install as outlined in the instructions. They are lightweight and have held my camper in place very well. I am happy with this purchase.



by:

Excellent buying experience. The tie downs were shipped promptly and received on schedule. They were installed within an hour with no surprises on my 2016 f150 longbed. Looking forward to their use.



by:

better for the rear than the happy jack bumper mounted ones more stable and easy to use



by:

Torklift frame mounted tie downs are a great product. The rear ones are easy to install. The front require a bit more skill and an extra set of hands. It’s a bit nerve wracking thinking you might loose the bolts into the frame! I upgraded my truck from an F150 to an F250. Because the brackets aren’t transferable, I had to get a new set and install them on my F250. I was glad I had the experience with the previous brackets on the F150 because the ones for the F250 are a bit heavier and more challenging to install. But I was able to do it with an extra set of hands to hold the brackets on to the frame. The fact that I went with the same Torklift system is a testament to the product. If you can afford aluminum, they’re beautiful and light. But once everything is in place, there’s no functional difference.
etrailer has great installation videos for the F150, but not the F250. I wish they had install videos for the F250 because it’s a bit more challenging, requiring an impact driver to loosen the nut on the driver side leaf spring.



by:

Excellent product. Good customer service. I will always use tork lift products from now on.
etrailer is an excellent vendor as well.
I upgraded from happy jack camper tie downs. I like the aluminum talon tork lifts for their easy installation, zero corrosion liability, and unimposing appearance when not in use.



by:

It's a little tricky feeding the bolts through the frame (almost lost one, but a little tape on the bolt/spring helped), but a great product otherwise. The mounting scheme for my Chevy 2500 HD is strong and ingeniously designed. No drilling or welding. The aluminum won't rust like other tie-downs mounted to the frame. It was well worth the extra money to get the aluminum version of this product.



by:

Easiest installation available. These fit perfect and attach just as instructed. The only issue you may have to watch is that on some truck frames, mine being one of them, Ford covers one of the holes with a black sticker that states, "No Mounting Bracket". In my case, the writing on this sticker was covered by a film of road grime and I had problems even finding the hole to dry fit the bracket until I cleaned off the frame with solvent. The actually TorkLift kit fits the frame perfectly though. The passenger rear bracket is very close to the exhaust pipe so when diesel particulate filter regeneration cycle begins, it will melt the label off the bracket but does not appear the even burn the paint on it so should still be OK, just be aware when unhooking the tie down from the bracket as it could be very hot.



by:

I recently purchased and installed TorkLift Talon rear tie-downs for my 2016 Ford F150supercab 8ft box. Installation was very easy with well explained directions. Product is excellent quality and will last the life of my truck. I only wish the front tie-down application was available, I would buy it in a heart beat. I will continue to check to see if front application becomes available.



by:

Installed stable loads on my 2016 super cab, 6.5 bed length truck to haul my truck camper.

Product showed up as described.



by:

I bought the Torklift camper tie downs for my new 2017 Ram 3500 dually. I haul a Lance 850 slide in truck camper. They came today and I installed them in about 4 hours. (I work slow) I bought the Aluminum ones so I don't have to worry about any rust. They look great and like the Torklift that was on my old truck I am sure they will give me great service.



by:

GREAT service, super fast, thanks!



by:

by:

by:
