  • What 4-Inch Wide Stake Pockets do You Recommend for My Aluma Trailer?
  • The best option we have for 4-inch wide weld-on stake pockets are the Curt Stake Pocket for Flatbed Trucks or Trailers - Qty 1 # C83072. These particular pockets measure 3-3/4 inches wide x 3 inches tall. The pocket is designed for standard 2x4 boards, which measures 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" thick. I went ahead and attached a diagram that shows the dimensions of the pocket. It is important to note that these are not made of aluminum.

  • Standard 3-1/2" By 1-1/2" Stake Pocket Tie Down Anchors For Flat Bed Car Hauler Trailer
  • The Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor # T355 measure 3-1/2" by 1-1/2". If you measure again (sand down if necessary), you probably actually have the standard 3-1/2" by 1-1/2" opening and not 3-1/2" by 1-3/8", in which case this would work well for you. For a spare tire carrier that would fit the standard 3-1/2" by 1-1/2" stake pockets we have the Buyers Products Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier # 3375201012 or the Brophy Trailer Stake Pocket Spare Tire Carrier - Black Powder Coat # SPTC.

  • Fastener Opening Size of 337B2374GZ Bolt-On Stake Pockets
  • The square opening for the fastener on the # 337B2374GZ is 7/16 of an inch square. The size and length of the carriage bolt will depend on what sort of the material you're attaching the stake pocket to, but the carriage bolt should have a 7/16 inch shoulder on it. I've provided some photos that should help make this clearer.

  • Are There Different Length Buyers Products Super Tracks?
  • The Buyers Products SuperTrack Kit # 337ST93 comes with four 46-1/2 inch long rails. They only sell them as a pack of four and you can't buy them individually. If you're wanting to make them a big shorter I would just go ahead and cut them. I like to keep all my tracks the same brand to make sure all my accessories fit. If you don't mind there being minor differences, then you can get a smaller track like this one # EM59133 which is only 18 inches long.

  • Will There Be Movement in Stake Pocket When Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # PK-SPTD are Installed
  • With the Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # PK-SPTD there are two ways this can be installed. The more permanent method which requires you to use the nuts on the pin that runs through it which holds it tight and prevents movement. Or using the cotter pin which allows a bit more movement but also the ability to remove when not needed. If you used the nuts to tighten the anchors down you'd get rid of the movement.

  • Difference Between Stake Pockets
  • I believe you may have been referencing the Curt # C83072 and the etrailer # HW03-080 because the only stake pocket from Redline is the Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor # WFSPDR which has a D-ring and is much more than twice the Curt because it has a different application. Assuming that, the difference between the two stake pockets is simply the dimensions. The Curt # C83072 has inner dimensions of 3-3/4" long x 1-5/8" wide x 3" tall and has steel which is 3/16" thick, while the etrailer...

  • Recommended Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors for 2014 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • The stake pockets on 2014+ Chevy/GMC trucks are rather unique and most universal stake pocket tie-downs such as the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors part # 317-850760 won't fit. Therefore, this leaves you with custom stake pocket tie-downs which are not cheap since they are designed for an exact stake pocket opening. The Putco Push-Up Tie-Downs for Rear Truck Bed Stake Pockets part # P99914 is the only custom fit option we have that I can say with 100% confidence will work.

  • Stake Pocket Tie Down Anchors that Fit 2018 GMC Sierra 3500
  • The stake pockets on 2014+ Chevy/GMC trucks are unique design and most universal stake pocket tie-downs such as the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors part # 317-850760 won't fit. Therefore, this leaves you with custom stake pocket tie-downs that are designed for an exact stake pocket opening. The Putco Push-Up Tie-Downs for Rear Truck Bed Stake Pockets part # P99914 is the only custom fit option we know for sure will fit.

  • Recommended Stake Pocket Tie Downs for a 2011 Toyota Tundra
  • I do have a possible solution for you but I called my contact at Erickson Manufacturing and they informed me that the Erickson Retractable Tie-Down Anchors part # EM01003 would not fit your 2011 Toyota Tundra. Instead, you will need to look at a more universal tie down like the Truck Bed Stake Pocket Chrome Anchor Points part # 92509. These stake pocket tie downs are not retractable but due to their installation, will fit a much wider variety of stake pocket openings. Unfortunately,...

  • Will CargoSmart Truck Bed Liner Anchor Points Work with 3/4" Hole on Truck Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at CargoSmart and he said that the 3/4 inch holes on your truck bed walls are a bit too small to use with the Truck Bed Liner Anchor Points # 348821 you referenced. The wings/toggles on the anchor points require a hole that's at least just under an inch in diameter. Another good alternative that won't require any modification to your truck bed is the Pilot Bully Clamp Tie Downs # WTD-823. These will simply clamp to the underside of your truck's bed rails to provide...

I spoke with my contact at Putco and they said the width of the part that goes into the stake pocket is 1-3/8 inches, and the length that it will extend into the hole is 3-1/2 inches. You will want to measure on your 2014 Ram 1500 to make sure it will fit. As long as your bed rail covers do not cover up the stake pockets they should not be a problem. I attached...

  • Will Pilot Bully Clamp WTD-823 Fit a 2019 Ford Ranger

As long as you have access to the inside of your rails, the Pilot Bully Clamp will work perfectly on your 2019 Ford Ranger.

  • Compatibility of the Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor Part # WFSPDR
  • The Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchor part # WFSPDR is designed to fit in a standard 2x4 stake pocket opening which actually measures to be around 3-1/2" long x 1-1/2" wide inside to inside. If the "5x1.75inch" you provided is formatted length x width then this tie-down would not be a good fit for you and I recommend adding part # C83072 in order to accommodate it. I have attached a review video of the above tie-down for you. The dimensions for the tie-down can be found on the product page.

  • Do 2x4s Get Attached Into the Stake Pocket # C83072
  • Typically there is a wall section built of wood and the stake pockets like part # C83072 allow the 2 x 4s to install. Usually the top section of the wall is attached at the front and back of the flat bed in some way which will hold the boards into the pockets. These pockets are designed to fit the standard 2x4 size and allow a bit of movement but if the walls built that use the pockets are secured properly the extra space would not be an issue.

  • Weight Capacity for the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085
  • WLL stands for Working Load Limit. The Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085 that you referenced have a 2,000 lb working load limit when used as a pair. Working load limit means the amount of weight it can secure continuously. Some have a break strength capacity listed as well that is typically quite a bit higher. For securing a 1,050 lb load these anchors would have more than enough capacity and would work well.

  • Weight Capacity of the Bully Truck Bed Tie Downs # WTD-823
  • The Bully Tie Down Anchors, part # WTD-823, have no load capacity rating. When the tie down mounts are installed to the truck bed side rail correctly, they will hold a load that will cause the trucks side rails to cave in or bend up before the anchor will break. These anchors have been tested to ensure they are stronger than the bed rails. Straps that are to be used with the Bully tie downs need to have a high enough breaking strength capacity for the load you will be tying down, since...

  • Recommended Stake Pocket Tie-Downs for a Toyota Tundra
  • The Erickson Flip-Up Stake Pocket Anchors part # EM01009 are not vehicle specific so there would be no way to confirm fit beforehand. However, Erickson has stated in the past that similar styles did not work. Instead, I recommend the Truck Bed Stake Pocket Chrome Anchor Points part # 92509 which have a much more universal design therefore should work on a Toyota Tundra. They can always be painted black if that is what you prefer.
