Video Transcript for Erickson Cargo Control Bar with Ratchet Review

Today we are going to show you Ericsons Cargo Control Cargo bar with ratchet system, part number 08908. Today we have a 2012 Silverado with an 8 foot bed, and were going to show you how to install and use the control bar. The bar is a universal fit item. It will work with all vans, trucks, mini vans and sport utility vehicles. It can be adjusted from 40 in length to 70 in length without using any tools. The cushion, no slip, rubber pads on end not only keep the cargo bar in place, but it also protects the vehicles surface.

Now we will go ahead and hop in the bed of the truck and show you how it works. We have a cooler in the bed of our pickup truck, and we are going to set it all the way up at the front of the bed. To prevent it from sliding around in the truck while we drive we are going to install the Ericson Cargo Bar. First we will take one end of the bar and place it against the drivers side of our bed, and then we will extend it to the passengers side. We will then use the ratchet system to put enough tension on it to hold it in place.

And thats it for Ericsons Cargo Control cargo bar with ratchet system, part number 08908.

I bought this cargo bar because of the reviews. Most were positive and I never really found any bad bad stuff. "MISTAKE" Maybe I got a defect or something but, it's a piece of #@*$. I can't believe nobody has had any issues. I put it in the bed of my 2012 F150 and extended to fit. The ratchet will not ratchet tight without slipping out of the so called locked position. I thought maybe it was because I had it extended so far. No, I tried it in my other small truck bed and the same thing. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and went back the next day and played with it some more thinking all these people can't be wrong but, the ratchet mechanism is just plain crap. Sorry folks, I can't recommend this product at all. Steer clear. 86825


Comments

Update: Etrailer noticed my review and promptly shipped me another cargo bar for exchange. First Id like to say I appreciate Etrailer being concerned enough to do that without me requesting it. They are obviously concerned with customer satisfaction. I like that. Second, the newest bar that arrived was indeed somewhat better than the one I returned although, it still isnt anywhere near what I expected in a ratcheting cargo bar. When I do tighten it and lock it, it does stay in place.........until you shake it a little and it slips out of the locked position again, just like the old one. The ratchet mechanism is just not made properly for a lot of tension. I have a bed liner so it needs the extra tension to hold in place. On the Web Page for the bar it says, Ratchet mechanism creates more tension for tighter, stronger hold. Thats just not the case. I believe the cooler thats being secured in the video is empty. My conclusion is that it is just a light duty bar to hold light duty stuff. I suppose if you had light loads you were trying to secure and you didnt tighten the bar very tight, it may do well. In their defense, they never say its heavy duty. Ill keep the bar but, I still dont recommend it for anything other than really light loads. I do recommend Etrailer though. The other items I bought were excellent as well as the shipping and customer service. Dont worry Etrailer, Ill be back, and thanks for your concern and help.

It was our pleasure to work with you and thanks for the feedback. You may already be doing so, but I just want to make sure. The ratcheting mechanism should be used to tighten up the bar and once it is snug, use the release to disengage the handle from the ratchet gears before you set the handle in the down position. Check right at the :52 mark in the video with the blue cooler to see that step.

I owned this product before and it is an excellent product. It can be adjusted to fit anywhere in the bed of the truck and installs in seconds. It is much better than the usual 2x6 in the bed and less costly then the OEM cargo divider. eTrailer customer service was excellent, they upgraded my shipping at no extra cost and I received the Cargo Bar within 3 days. My order was processed with one hours and was shipped within 3 hours. I was notified by email on the status of my order every step of the way. Great product and Outstanding customer service. A win-win situation. 16526

Product does not stand up to use - we used this item approx. 6 times before the teeth on the bar became stripped and bar would not hold. Manufacturer would not warrant product. DO NOT BUY - you are wasting your money. 292351

The product was exactly as advertised and well built. It's a simple product so there isn't much to say. What I can mention is the fantastic customer service from etrailer.com. There communication with the customer is among the best I've experienced. I had the product within days and it was very well packed. I've ordered from etrailer.com in the past and will continue to do so again in the future. 134521

Ratchet cargo pole. Fairly sturdy pole and the materials seem to be good for this thing. When extended the male pole is a little whobbley. Should be ok for restraining a 200lb item. I use these to separate the truck bed into portisions and stop cargo from sliding in the truck. They get the job done. 339447

Ask the Experts about this Erickson Truck Bed Accessories
Do you have a question about this Truck Bed Accessory?


  • Will MaxxTow Cargo Gate Work With Tonneau Cover On 2015 Chevrolet Silverado
  • Installing the MaxxTow Cargo Gate, part # MT70235 in your truck bed may interfere with the Tonneau cover you said you have. The issue is that the brackets that attach to the bed rail will protrude above the bed rail and will not allow the Tonneau cover to close. I recommend using one or two control bars like part # 08908. You can adjust them to hold the cargo in place and won't interfere with your Tonneau cover. I have attached a link to a product review video for the control bar you...

  • Will MaxxTow Cargo Gate Fit Under a Roll Up Tonneau Cover
  • It might be possible to make the MaxxTow cargo gate # MT70235 fit under a roll up tonneau cover. But the brackets and hand wheel handles will likely stick up too far. You might be able to use a couple of cargo bars such as # 08908 to achieve a similar functions as the cargo gate.

  • Cargo Control In-Bed Cargo Bar for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner
  • First for the most stable installation of the cargo stabilizer # HE4016-4017 having the ends on the metal of the bed is ideal. If it is a spray-in bed liner then that is fine as well. Drop in liners can move around and it is not the best application for this unit. Since the minimum width is 59 inches, a bed that is 57 inches is too narrow for the unit to fit. What you need is a slightly smaller one like # 08908. The minimum width on it is 44 inches. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Will MaxxTow Truck Bed Cargo Gate Fit a 2016 GMC Canyon
  • The widths listed for the MaxxTow Cargo Gate # MT70235 are the overall widths; 57" - 66-1/2". It is designed for full size trucks such as a GMC Sierra but if the bed width between the top, inside of the bed rails is 57 inches or more then it will fit your 2016 GMC Canyon too. Another option is to use a cargo bar, # 08908, which is adjustable from 44 inches to 74 inches.
    view full answer...

  • Will the MaxxTow Cargo Gate Work on a Truck with a Tonneau Cover
  • It is not likely that the MaxxTow cargo gate # MT70235 will fit on a truck with a tonneau cover. The issue is that the cargo gate clamps to the bed sides which is where a lot of tonneau cover tracks install and parts of the clamping system stick up above the bed sides so it is sort of a double interference issue. You could use 2 of the cargo control bars, # 08908, and they would essentially perform the same function. And you can mount them lower than the cargo gate to avoid interference...

  • How Long Is the Erickson Cargo Control Bar Part # 08908 When Fully Collapsed
  • The ratchet Erickson Cargo Control bar, part # 08908 adjusts from 44 to 74 inches. I prefer the ratcheting units as they allow more adjustment than the push buttons that have preset adjustment points.
