Is There An Anti-Rattle Function On The Erikson Hide-A-Hook?

Question:

Am looking at Erickson Hide A Hook # EM09094 for my El Camino. I think they will be perfect. I am , however,very concerned about the hooks rattling when not under tie down tension. Is there a spring on the hooks, or some method of securing them so as to NOT rattle? Your write up doesnt mention anything that would make me think there was some kind of an inch ant-rattle gizmo. If I can be assured they wont rattle Ill buy 6 of them. Thanks MUCH for your help.

I pulled the parts and had a discussion with Erickson about your concern as we haven't had any customers mention a rattle with this product. There are no springs or suppressors to secure the hooks, but the design of this product would require a big jolt to make these hooks rattle. The pads that go underneath each anchor point will create sound dampening while protecting the finish of your El Camino. There are tiny teeth on the back of the hook near the top that grip into the rubber padding. I've attached a video to show you this part.
