      Video Transcript for TorkLift Talon Front Camper Tie-Downs Installation - 2015 Ford F-150

      Today in 2015 Ford F150, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the TorkLift Talon Custom Aluminum Frame-Mounting Camper Tie-Downs. These are for the front, part# is TLF2018A. Here's what our camper tie-downs look like, installed. As you can see, really pretty straightforward system. We're going to have attachment points here that are all going to go into preexisting holes. We're not going to have to worry about drilling any holes, or anything like that. Something that's only on the driver's side here, you're going to see the two nuts are holding in our gusset plate, here. This actually leaves room for your parking brake cable to go through, if you've got a mechanical style parking brake.

      The electronics, you won't have to worry about, but a mechanical, that's going to pass right through there. They've really thought of everything for us, it makes it a pretty easy system to get installed. The benefit to our camper tie-downs being frame mounted, here, is that we're bringing everything down and locking into our frame, so our camper's not going to do that side-to-side moving, it's not going to do that shifting. This is going to give us better stability, and better handling as we're heading down the road. These are adjustable. We're going to have four inches of adjustment. You can see here we've got two holes to select from.

      Our first hole would be that position, there. From the outside edge of our truck that's going to give us about nine inches to the end of our mount. If we move it in that four, we should be closer to five now. Yeah, right on five inches right here to the end. That's going to allow adjustment.

      You'll see a little movement, and a little play. If you leave these in when you're heading down the road, and you're camper's not secured, these are going to make some noise. They've allowed a tolerance here, so as dirt, grime, and stuff like that get in there, we're still going to be able to install these easily. When not in use, completely remove them from the vehicle, and we're not losing any ground clearance, we're not really losing anything. We're just going to have a nice, solid anchor point for when we want to travel with our camper. TorkLift stands behind their product really well. They're offering a lifetime warranty with this, so if anything's ever to go wrong, we get it back to them, they're going to get it fixed for us.

      This is made completely out of aircraft grade aluminium, and we've got a very strong, sturdy, black powder coat finish to give it a nice look, and keep it looking good for a long time. Of course, with the aluminum construction, we're going to have no worry of any kind of rusting or corrosion. To being our installation, we're going to take one of our half inch by two inch bolts. We want to thread that onto a bolt leader. We're going to add on one of the serrated washers, also one of the spacer blocks there, just like that. We'll feed it in, there's a round hole in the side of the frame, here, that I'm going to use. We want to feed the non-coiled end into there, and we want it to come out this oblong hole right here. Put our spacer in, our washer in, and our bolt. We just kind of pull it down there, and we can leave that attached for now. Now we're going to take another setup just like what we just used. This time we're going to go in the square hole, here, and we want to come out the top hole. It's going to be right below our front bed mount, and right above our forward spring perch. It's usually better to feed our items in there separately. I'm going to pull it through, but then we want to let it hand right back in, just like that. We've got our 3/8 fish wire. We're going to attach a 3/8 x 2 bolt. Then we're going to slide on one of the serrated washers, one of the smaller flat washers, another serrated washer, then our spacer block. Again here, we're going to use one of the larger square holes, and we're going to come out the triangular shaped hole. We'll pull that out, make sure we've got everything in line, there, then we'll let that rest back in the frame as well, just like that. We want to take our spacer place, and also our bracket. We're going to bring our bolt leaders through our appropriate holes here, just like that. We also want to do the one on the bottom, here. We can guide this up into position. Now we're going to carefully remove our bolt leader off of our bolt down here on the bottom. This is the one that comes out of hole F. To that, we want to add a flat washer, and we'll secure it with one of our hex nuts here at the bottom. In our instruction booklet, step 6 told us that we needed to put a flat washer, a star washer, and a hex nut on the bolt that comes out of hole F, here. After going through and installing, we realized that that was a mistake in the instructions. On bolt F here, both the driver's side and on our passenger side, you want a flat washer, you want a lock washer, and then a nut. Instead of using the star washer that they call for, please use one of the included lock washer. We're going to place on a flat washer, a lock washer, and one of our hex nuts. Now we can take off our 3/8" leader here. To that, we need to add a 2x2 square spacer, and we're going to add on a flat washer. We'll do our flat washer, and then add on our nut. We're going to take another one of our 1/2" x 2" bolts, we're going to put a star washer on it, put our plate on there, and then we're going to stick it right up here on this front spring perch, so it'll come out the hole here on the side, just like that. Under that, we're going to add a flat washer, lock washer, and our nut. It's time to snug up our bolts. We're going to do it in the following sequence. We'll start with F, then we'll move to D, then to C, which will be the 3/8 bolt, and then B, which will be the one on the very top, there. It's time for us to grab our shorter 1/2" bolts, and our gusset plate. We're going to pass those through, and then those are going to go right through the two holes that are in our bracket. On the other side, we're going to add on a flat washer, lock washer, and also a nut. Now we can snug those down. We'll look at our instructions, find our torque specifications, and get everything torqued down appropriately. Now we can slide our bracket into place. We just want the offset to be towards the front of our truck. Once we've determined which bracket we're going to be using, we've got a sticker that we'll be able to place on there. That way we won't have to walk back and forth trying to figure out which one goes where. Right here, driver's front, that's where we're at. We'll head over to our passenger side, do the exact same thing there, with the exception we won't need to install the gusset plate. With everything torqued down to specification, that's going to complete our installation of the TorkLift Talon Custom Frame-Mounting Camper Tie-Downs, part# is TLF2018A, on our 2015 Ford F150.

      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. 357544

      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. 262826

      These are the best! After a western NY winter, they still look like new. And I don't have to hammer them in & out when rust builds up on the inside like I did with the steel ones. Pricey, but worth every penny. 243231

      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. 480048

      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. 404827

      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. 347321

      I have made about six trips this year and the Torklift truck camper tie down system has worked great. It is the only truck camper unit I would recommend.

      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! 261310

      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. 442580

      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. 734571

      Occasionally I do business with a company who makes me feel like they are genuinely interested in my concerns. etrailer is one such business. William B, Hally C and Sheila C are extremely professional and knowledgeable about the products they sell. Their eagerness to help and politeness really comes through during the phone conversations I have had with each of them. It is a great pleasure to do business with quality people like these folks. Thanks again for all your help. 718251

      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. 369687

      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! 308461

      Well made and simple to install with standard tools. Directions were fairly easy to understand. Fishing the bolts is critical. Make sure you fish the correct bolt as removal/change can be problematic. The customer service at etrailer was exceptional. The towshop messed up my previous order and ruined 2 weekends for me. I'll never shop there again. 209853

      100% Aluminum! Had to call TorkLift as it wasn't clear what components were AL. all frame brackets, receiver tube and slide in bar are aluminum. Had steel torklift previously and completely rusted out after ~6 years. For the expense they should have been coated better. Steel powder coating adherence was terrible. AL better be an improvement for the $$. Time will tell. 191999
