Review of Tork Lift Camper Tie Downs TLS9020


Today we're going to review part number TLS9020. These are the TorkLift AnchorGuard Derringer turnbuckles for truck camper tie-downs. These quick release turnbuckles will secure your camper to the tie-downs that are mounted on your truck. If you need tie-downs for your truck we also sell them separately on our website. You can see these turnbuckles have a lever action Derringer handle which makes turnbuckles easy to operate. Basically, if you pop the handle up to release it, it will let you release it from the tie-downs on your vehicle on your camper. When you do have them hooked up if you just push down on the handle with the hooks in place that will tighten it up between your camper and your truck bed. Now the shorter ones are the front turnbuckles and they are spring loaded to help reduce stress on your tie-down points. You'll notice there are these two rubber O-rings on the end here. Those are basically spring tension indicators on both the driver's and the passenger's side, and what that does is when you open up your, I'll just show you here, you open up your lever here, and then go to hook it on to your tie-down points, what you want to do is make sure you have the correct tension. Your tension is adjusted right here and right here. There's two nuts that you'll loosen or tighten up to get the correct tension. To get the correct tension, once you open this handle up you'll just move the rubber washer all the way to the end of this turnbuckle. Then when you push it shut it should move it out about a 1/4 inch. That would mean you have the correct spring tension on these turnbuckles. The instructions will show you how to do all that. They are included. Now the rear turnbuckles right here, they are the short turnbuckle but they have the longer threaded rods to them. Now these are cushioned with rubber instead of being spring loaded like the front ones, and the reason they do that the rubber in the inside will ensure proper amount of tension for bumper-mounted tie-downs on the rear while still minimizing stress on your tie-down points. The attachment hooks right here as you can see will swivel. This will make easy positioning. These turnbuckles are made of a sturdy rust-proof construction. The turnbuckles themselves are a stainless steel construction. The lever is right here you can see are a black powder-coated aluminum on the handles. This kit does include everything shown here. It includes the two long front turnbuckles, the two short turnbuckles with the treaded four threaded rods, the four Derringer handles, the O-ring tension indicators that I mentioned before locking pins on it. Now this part is made in the USA.

The application on these is that it can be used with bed and bumper mounted tie-downs on your truck camper. They are not for use with the TorkLift frame-mounted tie-downs. Now this front turnbuckle right here, the adjustment reach on this is anywheres from 18-1/2 inches to 25-1/2 inches. On this rear turnbuckle you can adjust the reach anywheres from 28-1/2 inches to 34-1/2 inches. This does come with a quantity of all four. It does comes with a lifetime warranty. Basically what you would do is open your handle up, put your hooks onto your tie-downs and again adjust it right here and right here using the indicator, and with that indicator up against the end when you go to push this down it should move it out a 1/4 inch. Once you've got the handle down just secure it, put the pin through it, lock it into place. Now, you can also, we do sell separate inaudible 0:03:58 life locks that you can put in here if you want additional security so nobody can open up the handles themselves. That should do it for the review of part number TLS9020, the TorkLift AnchorGuard Derringer Turnbuckles for truck camper tie-downs. .
