What is the Difference Between the Torklift Fast Gun and Derringer Truck Camper Turnbuckles  


We are looking at tie down system. Are the more expensive fast guns twice as good as derringer for 310$ or are they just for convenience?


Expert Reply:

The main difference between the Torklift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles, # TLS9522-2-LK, and the AnchorGuard Derringer Turnbuckles, # TLS9020, is how the camper tie-downs are mounted on your truck.

The FastGun # TLS9522-2-LK are designed to be used with frame mounted camper tie-downs. These tie-downs will mount to the frame of the truck giving a strong base to connect the turnbuckles to the camper and the truck.

The AnchorGuard Derringer turnbuckles are designed to be used with bed and bumper mounted camper tie-downs.

Frame mounted tie-downs are better because the connection point between camper and truck is the steel frame of your vehicle. Using the frame will make for a stronger more secure connection for the turnbuckles.
