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.

This Hitchmate cargo stabilizer works great because the ratchet makes it functional and easy to use. I will only use etrailer because of their customer service.

This HitchMate cargo stabilizer is well built. One word of caution, don't adjust it too tight before locking the ratchet. These new pick-up trucks are not built as strong as the old ones. I could see the sides of the truck flex outward with my first attempt to lock the bar.


Comments
The Hitchmate cargo stabilizer is working great after one year. It is especially handy preventing small items from sliding to the front of the box.

Hitch Mate cargo stabilizer bar for full size pickup . Good ,solid , well made product . Grips well to the inside of the bed . Nice heavy duty and really keeps items secure .worth the $.

I have owned a different brand truck bed support bar and while it usually worked, it flexed easily when simply clamping it into place. I wanted something that would securely hold propane tanks in place. This HitchMate bar is MUCH beefier than any other bar I've seen. Larger diameter, heavier, and a substantial locking mechanism. Only had it a few days, but definitely impressed. etrailer had an excellent price and is able to get items to me is 1-2 days! Great customer service.

Extremely heavy duty compared to others on the market. This is a well built product. Tried using the one sold at Lowes however it would always come loose due to the cheaper components used on their ratcheting system.

All of my purchases were just as advertised. The shipping was fast and tracking was efficient. This is a great company for all of your needs. Thanks to all at etrailer.com.

I highly recommend etrailer for any trailer or truck parts. I have never worked with anyone that was as knowledgeable and helpful. The process was flawless. Further, after I made my order, they followed up and let me know several times how the order and shipment was progressing.



- HE4016
by:

Heavy duty construction. Holds loads in place very well. You have to be careful to not bend your pickup inner bed when you tighten them. I wish the sprocket teeth were a little smaller (more teeth) to allow for more adjustment when adjusting the bar to fit. A quality product.



- HE4016
by:

Nice and solid. Fits tight in my truck bed. It looks and feels very substantial. The bar is a little awkward for one person to install due to the weight. I'll be using this to keep my heavy gear from sliding forward where I can't reach it.

This has been a very functional addition to my truck. Being able to partition and prevent items from shifting has been very useful to say the least. Highly recommend it for all truck owners.

Ask the Experts about this Heininger Holdings Cargo Bar

  • Bike Rack for Truck Bed that is Similar to Load Stabilizer Bar
    We don't offer a bike rack adapter for the # HE4016 but we do have the very similar truck bed bike rack part # TH822XTR which sounds like what you are looking for. I attached a picture of what it looks like installed in a truck bed as well as a link to an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Truck Bed Stabilizer Bar Recommendation for 2006 Toyota Tundra
    The MaxxTow Cargo Gate for Full Size Truck Beds # MT70235 that you referenced will fit your 2006 Toyota Tundra but it would not fit underneath a tonneau cover unfortunately. Your best option would then be a HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar for Full-Size Pickup Trucks # HE4016 which would easily fit under the tonneau and also fits your Tundra.

  • Can the HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar be Locked
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a HitchMate Cargo Stabilizer Bar # HE4016 to see if a lock would fit anywhere on it. There is no place for a lock to go on it or any of the other similar products we carry. If there was a hole that went behind the stop that keeps the handle in place, through the handle, then you could easily put a lock on it. But they did not put a hole there. I made a video showing the product and the area I mentioned where a lock could go if there was a hole.

  • Recommended Cargo Stabilizer For Large Bin In 2005 Ford E450 Box Van
    The biggest problem with an E-Track system being pulled out of the wall is that there were not enough fasteners used when securing the track system to the wall of a truck. Many time the point of stress can be placed on a part of the track system causing failure. I recommend using fasteners in at least every other hole and possibly in every mounting hole to make sure it is secured. The E-Track system like part # E19148 has a weight capacity of 6000 lbs, so it should have the strength needed...
