Review of Tork Lift Camper Tie Downs TLS9521


Today were going to review part number TLS9521. These are the Tork Lift FastGun Turnbuckles for bed-mounted 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, we do sell those separately on our website. Now, this is for a quantity of two turnbuckles. It does require two additional turnbuckles to secure all four corners of your camper. This part does use the lever-action handles right here, which you can seewhat makes the turnbuckles easy to operate. Basically, once you do your adjustments, all you would have to do is, if you push down on this handle, push it into place, once these hooks are tight, are in place, then itll tighten your camper down to your truck bed, and then once you pop up on the handle, itll release the tension and allow you to remove them from the tie-down points. On the inside of this turnbuckle is a spring.

It has a spring-loaded design; this threaded rod goes up through there; and then your adjustments are made right up here at the top. The spring-loaded design will help reduce stress on your tie-down points.The other thing is, if youll notice, theres this O-ring right here on the threaded portion of the rod. Basically, that is a spring-tension indicator. Basically, what that would do is help you get your adjustment right so when youright in here, if you can see, theres a square nut; theres a rubber washer and a lock nut that you would adjust to the right tension.The way you would do that is, with this handle open, you should adjust it to where this O-ring would be right at the bottom of your turnbuckle. So when you go to close your lever-action handle, it would move this rubber O-ring about a quarter of an inch away from the bottom of the turnbuckle.

That would mean your tension is set correctly on your turnbuckles.It is made of a high-impact, stainless-steel construction, which is very durable and rust proof. You can see this part number is in a white-powder-coat finish. This part and kit will include all the pieces that are shown here. It does come with these locking rings, which you can see right here. And if you can remove it, that will allow you to open up the lever-action handle.

When you go to close it, you can put a lock ring through there. That will keep anything from opening up that lever-action handle.We also do sell locks for this if youd prefer inaudible 00:02:21 additional security that can go through there; you can get keys-that-are-like-locks 00:02:24 thatll work on all these turnbuckles.It also comes with these five-sixteenths quick links. What that would be used for is if you run into a problem with one of these hooks on the ends not really fitting into the tie-down point or having an awkward position where it wont hook on to; you can use the quick link and just unscrew the quick-link fastener, hook it onto your tie-down point, tighten it back down, and then you can run your hook through the quick link.This part is made in the USA. The application on these turnbuckles is for bed-mounted tie-downs on your truck camper. The reach on itthe adjustment reachis 14 inches to 21 inches.

Again, it does come as a quantity of two turnbuckles. It does have a lifetime warranty.Again, basically what you can do here, Im going to try to show you again, if you look real closely, the threaded end of the threaded rod comes through here, has the square nut thatll keep it into place, the rubber washer and the lock nutonce you get those tightened down correctly, that would all slide down into this so you can put a cap on top there. So once you got your adjustment all correct, then all you need to do is close your handle, run your lock pin through thereor your lock, whichever your preferand then its all ready to go.That should do it for part number TLS9521, the Tork Lift FastGun Turnbuckles for bed-mounted camper tie-downs. .
