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

how will tork lift talon tie downs look on my truck

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.

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 Review of TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Front Tie-Downs - TLF2012A

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today we're gonna take a look at this TorkLift Talon custom front frame-mounted camper tie-downs. Now these are a custom fit part. They are designed to fit the 2008 to 2016 Ford F-250, F-350 Super Duty short bed trucks, and without the border step underneath the truck bed. On a custom fit part like this, I do recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this will work for your application. Now, this part will include everything shown here on the table.

It includes the two aluminum tie-down inserts that'll insert into the two steel frame brackets. Comes with the rubber covers that you'll put on here when you're not using the inserts, Comes with the mounting hardware to install it all, and a nice set of instructions that'll describe how this all goes together. Now these tie-downs will provide attachment points at the front of your truck for securing your bed mounted camper to your vehicle. Now these are front tie-downs. We do also sell rear tie-downs.

Those are sold separately on our website. Basically one tie-down will go on the driver's side, the other one on the passenger side. And then right up front here on the insert, you can see there's two holes on the tie-down inserts. This allows you to connect your turnbuckles that are from your camper to the truck and not interfere with anything on your vehicle. As I mentioned, the inserts that go into the steel brackets here are aluminum construction.

And I wanted to show you on those inserts, if you take your pin and clip out, you can slide the insert out. And again, they're aluminum, but if you notice, there's two holes here, and the reason they have two holes on the shank, it allows for different width campers. So if you slide it into the insert and hit the first hole, that's for a wider camper, you slide it all the way to the second hole, that's for a little bit narrower camper. So it gives you a range of whatever width camper yours is, fits your application. Now, these will give you a dramatic improvement with the vehicle handling and stability, and it is the safest way to haul a truck camper.

Prevents any vehicle sway and camper movement in all directions. These will let you haul your truck camper confidently by attaching the tie-downs to the strongest part of your truck, which is the frame, and vehicle manufacturers do recommend that all full high slide-in camper bodies should be directly attached to the vehicle frame structure. The frame mounted design ensures excellent handling by securing the camper to the truck's base instead of just to its bed. And it'll better distribute the weight to keep the set up from being too top heavy. To install these, it is a fast, no-drill installation, securing your camper to your truck. You can maintain the value of your truck and prevent rusted bed damage by avoiding drilling into your truck bed or bumper. As we mentioned, they are custom fit for your vehicle, driver's side, passenger side brackets, and these brackets, they will fit tight to your truck frame so there's no loss of any ground clearance. So it's perfect for any off-road truck camping. And what's nice, is when you're not using your camper, you can take these inserts out, both of these inserts. And then these brackets that'll be mounted to your truck. They're virtually undetectable when they're not in use. So when you remove those inserts, you can take your rubber covers that they include, just pop it over the opening of the insert here. And once you get it over there, and what that does is it keeps any dirt or grime from building up in there. So you put the covers on, you keep that out of there. And then when you're ready to install, you just pop your cover off and put your inserts in. What's nice is the hidden design of these brackets. They'll return your truck to its original look when they're not being used as tie-downs. And these brackets that bound to your truck frame, they are steel construction, have a nice black powder coat finish on the brackets and even on the aluminum inserts. These parts are made in the USA. And again, just to show you, if we pop the cover off, take your insert, go ahead and slide it in. I'm gonna go to the second hole and then line it, pin up, put it through the hole, pop your clip in, and like that you're all ready to go. You just hook your turn buckles to the holes up front here. These parts are made in the USA. But that should do it for the review on the TorkLift Talon custom front frame-mounted camper tie-downs..

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.

Scion tC

I purchased the Torklift Talon front and rear TC tie downs and love the fact they are lightweight but yet very strong. Being aluminum powder coated is great being in a salt air environment so no rusting like the steel versions do.

2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Received part of my order but did not receive Torklift frame mounted tie downs for the front for my 2015 Ford F350 and have not heard of status! I am planning a trip and hopefully will receive them soon as I have never had this happened to me on previous orders.





Ordered both front and back set for my 2023 F250. All good except one of the bolt holes for the front drive side is missing. Called etrailer. Option 1 - return (we'll see). Option 2 call torklift. Called torklift and left a message - we'll see what the response is. Viewing etrailer website, this is the proper fit. Viewing torklift website "There are no fits available". Photo included.


Installed on a 2016 RAM 3500. The install was pretty easy overall however, my biggest gripe is that I needed to purchase 6 extra Grade 8 bolts and nowhere does the packaging indicate that I needed to purchase extra hardware. Also, the drivers side mount was not manufactured 100%-flat so getting the short bolt in was a challenge but finally got it. I'm giving this a 3-star due to the missing bolts and no indication that more would be needed.


Always a great product! Shipping packaging needs to be improved as these were received dinged up and scratched. Installed anyways as I didn't want to go through the hassle of reorder and return.

Will still continue to purchase products through etrailer, but wanted to make note.


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.


I purchased front & rear TorkLift Frame mounts. Thay worked great and safer than bed mounts.


Great product. E trailer staff was friendly, knowledgeable and made the purchase easy. Will use them again for future needs.


Excellent product and excellent service from ETRAILER! Held up well after one year, will hold up in long run as well. Fit and finish of product is outstanding. Durable coatings, and well worth the extra money for these!


My salesperson was great, especially with the mess-up in shipping and handling. (Install instructions were not included) Of course, Torklift products are very well made BUT I did have to modify them ever so slightly, probably because my 2016 Ram was put together with a little less accuracy than was needed. Would use etrailer again.


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.


A quality product that has held up well after a year!


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.


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

Product showed up as described.


Products themselves are good quality. Outragously priced for what they are though. Received an email saying it will be delivered last Wednesday,but Ups said Friday then delayed until Monday!


Sturdy construction, well engineered, and easy to adjust. Parts fit my F-250 perfectly.


About a year ago, I purchased the aluminum Talon Torklift Frame-Mounted Front and Rear Camper Tie-Downs. The install was easy taking the better part of a day including a little help from a local automotive mechanic to loosen and retorque the truck’s leaf spring bolts. The Tie-Downs have worked great since installed with no issues. I highly recommend them.


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.


Very quick delivery and service. I had to change my order and they corrected with right away, and got me what I required.
Instructions were ok, a video of installation would be helpful


I ordered Camper tie-downs for my new Ram 2500. I erroneously ordered TDL2126A for the front. They wouldn't clear the nurfs. A quick call confirmed that I would need the TDL2127A. I had to pay for the 27As up front and hope when I returned the 26As on an rmer I would receive prompt refunds. Imagine my surprise when they notified me that they received my return and the refund was on its way. These guys are super, especially Brenden C.
ps the Aluminum tie downs are great and the happy jacks awesome!


Fit perfect with no drilling.
