Video Transcript for Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors Review

Hey everybody, welcome to I'm Bobby, and today we're taking a look at our Erickson, chrome-plated tie-down stake pocket points. So, if you guys want a little tie-down anchor on all four corners of your vehicle, or just two, this can be a great option for ourselves. These are gonna give us a 2000 pound working load limit on each anchor, making 'em excellent at actually securing all of our cargo needs. Now obviously, we do have this top hole here making it amazing for any kind of clevises or hooks that we need to hook into it. I really do like this kinda of, more like marina anchor-style that we have too, making it easy to do, maybe to do some figure eights, whole bunch of other knots that we need on here gets you a lot of versatility of how you actually need to start hooking onto your cargo to these guys, which is cool.

So, the one thing I'll say, you can kind of see this back one isn't quite sitting as flush as we want. Now, we'll break that down later on in that install segment as well, of why we're run into that. Mainly that's because we have a liner here today on our F-250. It's kind of bulging out our side rail, just a little more making it harder for our plate to sit in here as much as we need to. Now, others at home, have done a little bit of custom fabrication to make it look a little prettier for themselves.

Let's go ahead and look at our cab here. You can see this one is looking exactly how we want it to and you can achieve this on a variety of other trucks out there, which is cool too, so not just on the F-250 but here today, I think it looks pretty good. The biggest thing, let's make sure we are kinda getting the size and the length here of our brackets or our plates, I should say, and then, measuring our own stake pockets, again, I'll kind of go through that on that install later. Really do like how these guys look, they give you a great little tie-down point. The one thing I'll say though, they are just a chrome plate on here with a regular steel construction underneath.

And what that means is, if you are having metal-to-metal contact on here you're gonna see this chrome peel off and break off pretty quickly, just to be upfront about it, and then you have rust that sets in really quick and it just doesn't look very good. You can see some of the customer photos available here, at, where this thing just doesn't last. Now, there are preventative and maintenance techniques and things we can do to make it look better and keep on it. However, it's one more thing we have to look out for and if you're really just going for looks, at that point you can't use your tie-down points, right 'Cause you can't have that metal-on-metal contact. Now, maybe something like a rope or polyester straps might be a little better than plastic hooks on here.

But again, we're limiting ourself of what we can do with these guys, and that 2000 pound working load limit is amazing. Now, if we're not too worried about rust it's no big deal at all. We also do have a variety of other tie-down kits available here at One that's really good and cosmetically looking really nice and if that's what you're going for, like with this chrome finish, it is a little more expensive but it is gonna be the Putco push in tie-down anchors as well, Really low profile, chrome plating as well, which is great but the underneath is made of stainless steel rather than the steel that we have on these guys and that just makes it a lot more resistant to corrosion, we're not gonna see that rust set in and it is gonna be looking good on our truck. But if we're looking for something that gets the job done, allows us to secure our cargo, and actually be pretty easy to take in and out, and therefore, we only need to leave it on when we need it. Well, these guys are gonna be a great option. That's one thing I really like about 'em. The install is very, very straightforward and it's honestly not too bad to back these guys off, take 'em out and store 'em somewhere, inside your garage until you actually need them. So, I love that they look so good, as they are we're just not gonna do, we're gonna have to do a of couple things to make sure they keep looking good and that's definitely a caveat you're gonna have to weigh for yourself. One thing I might suggest, is actually looking at the Putco push down, tie-down points, and why that is They actually have a stainless steel construction on the underneath. So yes, they have that chrome finish, but even if you're seeing a little degradation to that top finish, it holds up and it doesn't rust away and start looking not so great on your truck. Overall though, I think these are gonna work great if you're just really wanting a tie-down point. If you're going for something for looks, and especially if you're worried about that rust, these wouldn't be what I'm going with. However, if you're really not worried about how these are gonna look in three months to six months and you're okay with a little bit of rust or just doing a little maintenance at home these could still be an excellent option. I love that we have that 2000 pounds, of working load limit, makes it really easy for me to have four points of tie-down on the bed of my truck and it doesn't break the bank to do so. But otherwise, I think that about does it for our look here today, at the Erickson stake pocket tie-downs, here at I'm Bobby, thank you for watching..

Easily add a tie-down point to your truck with these Erickson stake pocket anchors. They install in your truck bed's stake pockets, safely handle a WLL of 2,000 pounds each and feature an attractive, chrome-plated finish.


I ordered these to replace lost Bed Rail Hold Downs thus they didn't work as well as I hoped. I did think the quality was good however and if used as intended they would be great.


They work great but after 2 months on the truck they started to rust and continue to get worse

I do have a solution for you. I did do research and found that while the chrome plating does provide a layer of rust protection it isnt 100 percent rust proof. If the plating was damaged or developed minute cracks, then the steel underneath can rust which rises to the surface and from there grows. I would recommend using a rust-penetrating product like WD-40 Specialist Rust Release Penetrant Spray or PB B’laster Catalyst on the rust and then using a rag to take the rust off.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/15/2021


These are a very nice product and good value for the money.

I installed these on my 1992 F150 even though they were not shown to fit. The rear ones went on perfectly and took 5 minutes each to install. My stake holes not right for the front anchors and I spent an extra 10 minutes on each trimming the anchor base plate too fit.
Anyone with mechanical ability can make these work and now I can keep coolers and things from sliding around in the bed of my truck.

Not Good! I really like having these on my truck but in no time they rusted completely and look terrible. They did not make six months before rusting and to make it worse, I wax them when I wax the truck. I will end up painting them or throwing them away.
old f - 10/05/2014


These are the bomb! I installed them on my beloved 1990 F-250 and they work great. This beast lives in the elements 24/7/365 and these tie-downs show zero wear!


Only time will tell, my last set I got years ago rusted after 5 years of use


I've had a set of six of these on my long bed F-150 for at least 15 yrs. They are very strong and allow many different ways to tie your load down. This is a great design for a stake pocket anchor. I wish this design was available in stainless steel as my truck sits outside and these will rust if not covered or otherwise protected. I recently had to purchase a set of two in order to replace one anchor because I accidentally let the threaded flange fall down inside the bed body and couldn't retrieve it. Luckily, I was able to find these at etrailer. I highly recommend these anchors.

It has been a year since I installed the two new anchors and both are showing signs of rust. My old ones 16 yrs are very rusted but still very functional. I love this design and would buy a whole new set of six if they were stainless steel hint, hint. Otherwise, these rusted ones work just fine. Not pretty but neither is my truck. You never know, a new set of stainless anchors might just give me the incentive to give my truck a new coat of paint.
Terry O - 02/17/2015


Very easy. 1993 F250 truck worked on the 2 back sockets.


these are not like the cheep ones ( flimsy ) you would find every else !!!


They fit nice in pockets lock down good and simple


Product is built in a strong, useful way. Useful hooks and loops, however did not fit my truck properly. needed to modify part that clamps tie-downs in place in order to get them to fit stake pocket. Manufacturer indicated they fit my model and make.

It was OK except the rubber or plastic pads that were sent with the tie-down anchors changed the color of the paint on my truck! Directly under the pad the paint became a darker color. Doesnt look good at all. Otherwise the anchors were fine.
Frank R - 08/27/2014


I got just what I wanted--I will note that if you
have a spray in bedliner it makes mounting
these somewhat tight

All 4 started to rustI have removed them
Robert - 07/31/2014


I put them in my bed for an additional hitch point
They will rust over time but the design is great to tie off a rope or put a hook through the loop
Also it only requires a small hole be drilled and you can mount it anywhere in the sheet metal where you can access the back side (to install backplate)
Stainless would be better but I don’t think this shape is available like that.


I haven't had a chance to try them but the instal was easy and they look great. The best thing is that the anchor isn't just a loop you can tie around the corners. I love how they fit on any size bed because you just angle the lock and tighten. It's a great product at a better price.


The Erickinson Stake Pocket Tie Downs do not fit a GMC well - I had to work hard to get the under plate in and then it is not centered so the rubber gasket does not cover the complete opening of the stake pocket. I still haven't been able to get the anchors in the front stake pockets and are trying to figure out how I am going to get it done. They are chrome plated and one of the 2 I have put in peeled of some of the "chrome" off before I was finished attaching. I really like the choices I have for tying down different loads but I don't think they will last long.


The Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors, are perfect for what I needed, VERY STRONG, extremely easy to install they work great for all my needs. I'm always needing to tie down stuff in the back of my truck, they work great with all types of applications from ropes, bungees to straps very happy with the this product. I would highly recommend these Tie-Down Anchors to my friends and family.
Great Job !!!
Tony M.


Very strong and attractive stake pocket tie down. Eliminate straps and use turnbuckles to hold down your camper, or other cargo. This three way tie gives you many more options of tie holds to hold even more cargo.

Best of the best.


I love the product. It was a big deal to get it installed. NOT the products fault or design. I own a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT. The stake holes were the problem. I tried to install one and it would lean to one side. I tried a different stake hole, the same problem. I decided to feel around in the hole. I found that the side facing out, the lip was 1/8 inch or less and would not let the brace go under there. I had to get up in the truck bed with a piece of round steel rod and put it in the hole and hit it with a hammer to drive the inside of the stake hole out so the brace would fit in right. Make sure to use a rag around the rod so it does not scratch the top of truck bed. Sorry no pictures available.


Parts camed within a few days in great condition. Unscrew from package and make sure "pocket plate" has the bent ends facing up before inserting. Do not completely unscrew the assembly during installation-just run the "pocket plate" down as far as threading allows.
Make sure "pocket plate" is 90 degree's from top plate during install.
Tip the whole assembly down into the pocket so the bottom plate is below the top lip of the truck bed pocket, once inside hold assembly up while turning to tighten to keep the bottom plate from going out of 90 degree.
When tightening keep a eye on the truck bed sheet metal, the bottom plate can and will deform it if you tighten too much (I used a long pry bar for leverage).


Bought for a 2013 Ford F150 Supercab. I drilled and used the existing stake pocket covers rather than the supplied rubber gaskets. They look fine.


Product was shipped promptly and received without damage. Installation was straight forward an and will hold so much better than my previous hold downs. I waxed the chrome top and bottom as well as oil the screw based on other feedback that they tend to rust. So far they appear to be a quality product.


Great product. Very quick delivery. Easy installation of very sturdy tie down anchors. I definitely recommend this product.


I don't usually write reviews, but this product is so perfect I had to. It attaches quickly and securely, and fits perfectly. Now I can fasten cargo down efficiently and I can remove the devices when I want to reinstall my shell.

Great service too.


These worked great for 1996 F150. Had to modify the the bracket that goes into the pocket for them to fit into the middle and front stake pocket. Nice look to the truck and seems very strong. I do wish they where made out of stainless steal.


Hooks created great tie down points. They are showing light surface rust, but from previous reviews I expected that. Very good overall product


Hey these are great. Very fast turn around on the order. Easy to install. Keeps my 4-wheeler in the bed of truck right where I want it. They look good too! Thanks a bunch. A-1 Service.

  • What Size are the Bolts Used in the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors, # EM09085, to measure the bolts. I used a set of digital calipers which I show in the video I also made for you. The bolts are 3/8 of an inch. This is good since the hole you already have is smaller and can be enlarged as needed. I would definitely wait to test them out in the holes first before making them any larger just to be on the safe side.

  • Would the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors fit a 2008 Chevy, Silverado LT
    I spoke to my contact at Erickson and she could not confirm that the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085 would work on your 2008 Chevy Silverado, but she did give me some measurements for the # EM09085 for you to compare to the stake pockets of your vehicle to determine if these would fit. The top plate measures 2-1/4 inches by 3-3/8 inches and the arch plate that hooks into the stake pocket measures 1-1/2 inches by 2-1/2 inches. You will want to compare those measurements...

  • Stake Pocket Tie Down Recommendation for a 1977 FordF250
    Yes, we do carry a set of stake pocket tie down anchors that will work on your 1977 Ford F250. Check out the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085. These are a universal fit item, but as long as the length of your stake pockets are less than 2-1/2 inches this tie-down will work great for you.

  • Can Ratchet Straps Be Used with Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors
    The issue with using a stake pocket mount tie down, such as # EM09085, with a ratchet strap is that you can over tighten a strap and cause the tie down to pull out with some force and it could damage the truck or hit someone. If you made it snug but did not try to ratchet it down as hard as you could then it would be fine. The only video we have on this product is the short review video linked for reference.

  • Fit of Erickson Stake Pocket Anchor on 1995 GMC Pick Up
    The Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors you referenced, part # EM09085 are a universal-fit item that will fit many different vehicles, therefore, Erickson does not have any specific vehicle fit information. To determine if it will fit the stake pocket of your truck, measure the length and width of the stake pocket opening. The curved plate of the tie down is what actually holds the anchor in place against the underside of the stake pocket opening. The curved plate of the Stake Pocket...

  • 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.

    I do have an option for you but I spoke with my contact at Erickson Manufacturing and they informed me that the Erickson Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for Truck Bed Stake Pockets part # EM01003 will not fit your 1993 Ford F-350. The best option I have for you is the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors part # EM09085.

    I have another option but the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for Truck Bed Stake Pockets # 917-850760 you referenced are not confirmed to fit the stake pockets of your 1992 Ford F-150. I recommend the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors # EM09085 as a customer was able to install them on his 1992 Ford F-150 with minor trimming to the anchor base plate. I included the picture of the Erickson # EM09085 installed on the customers 1992 F-150 for you to take a look at.

  • Can the Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor Be Installed In a Truck Bed
    The Brophy D-Ring Tie Down Anchor part # DR01 do require drilling for installation, you'll need to drill a hole through the bed floor if you wish to use them in this application which I don't recommend. Instead, I recommend using a set of stake pocket mounted tie-downs like the Erickson Stake Pocket Tie-Down Anchors part # EM09085 which don't require any modifications.

    I have a much better solution for you than the part # EM09085 as a camper tie down. The Brophy Camper Tie Downs, part # TDSF, you have referenced are a universal application. The hardware to mount the tie downs to the vehicle are included. These tie downs will fit campers up to 8 feet in length. If you have a larger camper I would recommend the Brophy Camper Tie Downs, part # HSSF which is a more heavy duty tie down. The tie downs wrap around the bed, not in the stake pockets, and...
