TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs - Front Tie-Downs - TLC2224 Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at these TorkLift custom front frame-mounted camper tie-downs. Now, these are a custom fit part. They are designed to fit the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks with either the five and three quarter foot bed or the six and a half foot bed without the border, the step underneath the truck bed. And on a custom fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, it'll show if this will work for application.Now, these tie-downs will provide the attachment points at the front of your truck for securing your bed-mounted camper to your vehicle.

The rear tie-downs we do sell separately. One tie-down will go on the driver's side and one will go on the passenger side. And then the two holes on these inserts, they allow you to connect your turnbuckles from your camper to your truck and not interfere with anything on your vehicle. What's also nice, they are adjustable. You can see if you pull this pin and clip out, the insert will have two holes at different lengths.

So you can put it on the last hole if you have a wide camper. If it's a little bit narrower, you can slide it down onto the smaller hole.So once you get it on the correct hole that you need, just line the hole up with the pin, slide the pin through and clip it, and it holds it into place. This will let you feel dramatic improvement with the handling and stability of the vehicle, and it is the safest way to haul a truck camper. These will help prevent vehicle sway and camper movement in all directions. You can haul your truck camper confidently by attaching these tie-downs to the strongest part of the truck.

They attach to the frame. And most of the vehicle manufacturers do recommend that all full-height sliding camper bodies should be directly attached to the vehicle frame structure.The frame-mounted design helps ensure excellent handling by securing the camper to the truck's base instead of to just its bed, which will better distribute the weight to keep the setup from being too top-heavy. And it will also help avoid bed and bumper damage. It's common with some of the other tie-down systems. This is a nice fast no-drill installation.

Securing your camper to your truck will help you maintain the value of truck and prevent rust and bed damage by avoiding drilling into your truck bed or your bumper. As I mentioned, this is custom-fit for your vehicle. The driver's side and passenger side brackets, these brackets will fit tight to the truck frame. So there's no loss of any ground clearance. So it's perfect for any off-road truck camping.And what's nice is when you're not using these, these will be virtually undetectable. They're underneath the truck. So when you take the inserts out if you're not going to use them, and you slide that insert out, this portion here will all be underneath the truck. You wouldn't even know they're on there. The hidden design returns your truck to its original look when it's not being used. And then when you go to use it, just go ahead and slide your tie-down in, put your pin in, clip it, and then you'll have your connection points for your turnbuckles. These are a steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish for durability. This part will include everything laid out here on the table. The two front tie-down inserts, the two frame brackets, all the necessary hardware to install it and a nice set of detailed instructions on how everything installs. And these parts are made in the USA. But that should do it for the review on these Torklift custom front frame-mounted camper tie-downs.
