Video Transcript for HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the HitchMate line of cargo stabilizer bars. If you have pickup truck, a common problem that we run into is that a lot of our cargo seems to slide around whenever we're driving around, especially with the drop in bed liners, it makes it a lot easier for all that cargo to slide around. So let's take a quick ride and see how our cargo does.So we got our HitchMate in place to make sure our cargo isn't going to slide around. One of the first things you might notice is it is rather a beefy, big bar. Now it is going to stay in place pretty well, and even keep some of those heavier objects from sliding around.Our HitchMate cargo bar has a full steel construction, so even if we do have a little bit of moving in our cargo we're not going to have to worry about any kind of cracking or any damage to our bar or our cargo. Now one thing you're really going to appreciate is that there's not any way to accidentally release this.

You can even pull up on the lever and it's not going to release. We're going to have to come to this release knob here, push it in, and then lift the lever to release it. If we have it properly secured down, it's going to stay locked in position and hold everything securely.The feet on our hitch bar are going to be steel, it's going to have a rubber coating around it. We're not going to have to worry about scratching our bed side, and it is going to grip nicely, even on those plastic bed liners like we have here.The teeth along the top of the bar here are going to allow us to make different adjustments to accommodate different sized truck beds. The one we have here is going to be for full sized truck beds.

It's going to collapse all the way down to 59" and extend all the way out to 73". There's also one available for compact trucks that's going to collapse down to 50" and extend all the way to 65".To install out HitchMate cargo bar, the first thing we're going to want to do is unlatch it. We come to this silver tab, we're going to push down and that'll release the locking mechanism. We're going to lift up that handle so that it's all the way released. We're going to loosely put our bar in place, now you don't want to get it too tight to start with.

You want to have a little bit of give because when we rotate that handle down it is going to provide a little bit of tension to keep everything in place. Then that latch is going to keep it nice and secure and make sure our cargo doesn't slide forward or backward making sure it doesn't move around in our bed. With our cargo bar in place we'll take our truck for another drive.HitchMate also offers a support bar that is going to work with our cargo bar to keep our cargo from shifting side to side. Now you can either pick this up separately or as a kit with your cargo bar. Now the way it's going to work is we're just going to push all of our cargo to one side, making sure it's nice and secure.

And then on our support bar, we're going to have these wing nuts that will loosen up and then we're simply just going to put it over the bar and tighten it up by hand. You just want to make sure that it's nice and snug up against your cargo so it can't shift over any more.And we'll be able to put this anywhere along the bar so long as we're not coming into contact with the teeth. A lot of times we're not able to put our cargo in a way that our support bar wouldn't be in this area. So a quick tip is you can actually just turn it upside down that way the teeth are still free and our bar can still be attached to our cargo bar, keeping everything nice and secure.Our support bar is going to be from the end to the end where it attaches to our cargo bar, is going to be 14" long and the opening on our support bar is going to be 1 3/4" long by about 4" wide. So with our cargo secure, let's go ahead and take another drive and see it how it handles.Another way we can use our cargo bar is put it towards the back of our tailgate. That way it will keep our cargo secure but a lot easier to access. Like if we're going to the grocery store we can keep all of our groceries back here, nice and secure, but very easy to unload.That will finish up your look at the HitchMate line of cargo stabilizer bars.

Heavy duty, solid and easy to set up. Delivery was timely and as advertized. 612284



- HE4016-4017
by:

No assembly required for this item. Take it out of the box and put it right in the bed of your truck. Moves easily depending on the size of the load, and is solid enough to secure lighter items directly to the bar to eliminate any movement. The additional arm makes it even easier to secure smaller loads. 253777



- HE4016-4017
by:

It is great for keeping every think in place , I really like the easy adustment Bu t it would be nice if came with another arm. 272743



- HE4016-4017
by:

Works great just as described, keeps stuff from sliding forward, I use it to keep items close to the tailgate opening 573357



- HE4016-4017
by:

I really like this cargo bar from Hitchmate. Nothing cheap about it! It is a heavy duty unit that will last many years even with continual use. Not a lightweight cargo bar like so many others. I believe in spending for quality the first time because if I have to buy it again, it just became the most expensive option of all. The bar secures well without being over tight. The feet are heavy duty (non-marking?) and have a little give at the base of the shoe to prevent failure in the event of sudden movements/stops. It's a nice design feature. I am soon planning on moving many loads and this cargo bar will come in handy. 466302



- HE4016-4017
by:

Well built and strong. Really hold a load in the bed- does exactly what it was purchased or. If you are looking for something that holds all kinds of loads- this is the product for you. It is a bit heavy, and when its not in use is can be bulky, but that's the only downside. 542542



- HE4016-4017
by:

Will not work in a plastic bed liner truck. Too heavy in my opinion, and too expensive. Sitting in my garage because I can't use it. I use bungee cords stretched across the bed to keep things from sliding forward. 324599


Comments

Tried setting bar in different positions, found what works. I still think the price was a bit high.

Has worked well in securing fuel and propane tanks in the bed. Box was a little messed up when delivered and there were some cosmetic scratches on the bar, but not bad enough to send back. A little awkward to mount up since it is not a true ratchet. You have to hold the bar in place and get the length set almost the width of the bed and then lock the lever down. Have not had problems with it loosening and I have not been setting to very tight to avoid bending the bed. 30720



- HE4016-4017
by:

It's a good product that could be a little better. If it were square the Support Bar would fit better. And when you tighten up the screws to hold the support bar to the cross bar, the screws will cut into the paint on the cross bar. This may case rust on the bar. I have only used it once, but that is my observation. But it is a lot better than trying to tie everything down. I carry lots of things in the bed of my truck to our cabin. This is so much nicer to have things trapped at the back of the truck so I don't have to climb in and chase items around. 549567

I wanted to buy a cargo bar and there are tons of them out there. I did my research and decided on the one from etrailer. Placed the order and was notified that the cargo bar was in production. I had ordered in plenty of time so wasn't worried. Karen at etrailer kept me updated and the item finally arrived. Very good quality, sturdy no complaints, glad I bought two. Karen at etrailer was awesome. Even a phone call to tell me that the cargo bar was on its way. Great product, great company and of course Karen was great. 492370



- HE4016-4017
by:

Larger and heavier duty than I thought it would be. The add on piece could be improved. It is a square attachment with wingnuts monubted to round pole. The smaller accessory bag is nice addition also. The communication was great about order status, delays, and options. Thanks etrailer. 560130



- HE4016-4017
by:

First thing I noticed on the HitchMate upon pulling it out of the box was the size! the pictures don't do it justice on the web site. The diameter of the Stabilizer bar is massive and completely erased any concerns it would hold up during use. The "locking/sizing mechanism" is also very "beefy" holding it securely in place with the "slick" surface of the Ford factory spray-in-liner allowing it to handle all sizes or weight of my cargo. With the addition of the Stabiload Stabilizer I can isolate to completely avoid shifting either left or right and front to back. Could not be more pleased. As usual, eTrailer service customer service could not have be better. 350372

Installed the retainer (ordered 2) and they were so easy to drop in, I didn’t even read the instructions. Solid and firmly in place, once the slick slope drop in bed liner issues were overcome. Just have to find places on the truck wall that are flat and not too slick. Otherwise a good investment. 604245

- HE4016-4017
by:

It looks like a quality piece. It fit well in my 2017 F-150 and I think it will do the job. The only thing yet to measure is durability over time. Check back later for this after a few years use. 553400

Why didn't I buy this cargo stabilizer bar sooner? For years, I used a couple of 2x6s to separate loads in the bed of my old F-150. Just bought a new Tundra and was ready to cut some lumber when I saw the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar on the etrailer.com website. Price was reasonable, so I bought it. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Does everything my old 2x6 did - only better, faster, easier, and with no occasional splinters! Great product. Would recommend to anyone with a pick-up truck. (And, don't forget to get the StabLoad Support as well.) 539336

Do you have a question about this Truck Bed Accessory?


  • Truck Bed Cargo Organizer That Fits 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
  • I'd measure again to be sure of what you have. Most standard truck bed widths are right at 72 inches which the # HE4016-4017 would fit and work well with but if you are at 73 inches this probably won't get as snug as you'd like. Instead we have the Erickson part # 08907 which has a range of 60 to 75 inches which will work either way. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • 2018 F350 6.5 Bed Cargo Stabilizer
  • The HitchMate Cargo Stabilizier, part # HE4016-4017, will fit trucks with bed widths of 59 to 73 inches. Looking at your 2018 Ford F-350, this should be a fit. I do recommend measuing your bed width prior to purchasing, just to be sure. I've included a video of this part in action so you can get a better idea of its features.

  • Load Stabilizing Bar Recommendation to Brace Cargo in Trailer
  • Based on what you described it sounds like you are looking for a cargo stabilizer bar like the HitchMate Cargo Bar part # HE4016-4017. This has an adjustable length of 59" - 73". This does not require a track to install though. This uses friction to hold itself to the wall it is installed on. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Cargo Management Recommendation for Securing Load in Bed of Truck
  • Sounds like you are looking for the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar # HE4016-4017. This would work well to stabilize the load you have in the bed of your truck. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Will the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar # HE4016-4017 work with Bed Liners
  • Yes, the cargo stabilizer # HE4016-4017 that you referenced will work with a bed liner like what you have in your 1996 Ford F250. You will be able to adjust the tension of this stabilizer tight enough to the sides of your truck bed. The rubber feet of the unit will provide excellent grip. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.
    view full answer...

  • Truck Bed Mat and Cargo Management Recommendation for Preventing Cargo Movement in Truck Bed
  • The DeeZee Heavyweight, Custom-Fit Truck Bed Mat # DZ86928 that you referenced has a Nyracord construction that is considered non-skid and designed to prevent cargo from sliding around in the bed of your truck. Based on what you described this mat should work well for you. You may also be interested in the # HE4016-4017 to keep the cargo in your truck bed from moving around as well.

  • Alternative Tailgate Options for a 1977 Ford F-100
  • I do have an option for you but Stromberg Carlson does not offer a Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate for your 1977 Ford F-100. The only option we have have for you at this time is the Truck Tailgate Net part # TR-03 which is not as solid as the above but will still help to secure cargo. We also have options like the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar and StabiLoad Support part # HE4016-4017 as well.

  • Cargo Management and Bed Extender for a Toyota Tacoma
  • I know what kind of bed extender you are referring to, but we don't carry any that also doubles as cargo management when the tailgate is up, but I do have a solution for you. What you could do is use a HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar # HE4016-4017 to secure your cargo near the bed of your truck and then use the Bed Extender part # BX4004-01
    view full answer...

  • 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.

  • Length of StabiLoad Support on HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar
  • The StabiLoad Support that comes included with the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar # HE4016-4017 measures 14 inches long from where it attaches to the expandable bar to the end of the support. I have attached an image to assist. I have also included a short video demonstration on this product that you can check out.
