Review of TorkLift Camper Tie-Downs TLS9527


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Torklift locking fast gun turnbuckles. The turnbuckles secure your camper to the tie downs mounted on your truck, so these are designed for bed mounted campers. The lever action handles makes the turnbuckles very easy to operate, so when you're ready to secure it all you have to do is push down on the handle once the hooks are in place to tighten, and then to release you just lift up on the handle. It's a really nice, easy to use design. It's a spring loaded design, which really helps to reduce stress on the tie down points.The unit features spring tension indicators on both the driver's and passenger's side for simple set up. The round O-ring is used only as a gauge to set your spring tension, and you can adjust that as necessary per the instructions.

It does come with traditional pins and clips for security. They would be placed right through here to make sure that the hook does not become disengaged or accidentally disconnect. It keeps the handle in the down position as well. It is lockable for added security. Locks are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.The unit also comes with two quick links, os in some applications you may find that the half inch threaded hook bolt does not easily insert into the hole of your truck's tie downs.

You can use these 5/16" quick links to make that much easier and to make your connection as necessary.The unit's constructed from a high-impact, polished stainless steel construction. It's very durable and rust proof, and it has a really great look to it. The product's made in the USA. It is designed for frame mounted tie downs for truck bed campers. The reach or extension is 14" to 21.5", and they're covered with a lifetime warranty.Now, when you're setting this system up for the time, you want to do so according to the included instructions.

Once you have the unit set up for your application, using it is super easy. All you have to do is hook one end of each turnbuckle onto your camper and then hook the other end to the tie down. To tighten, again you flip the lever action handles down. That's going to apply the necessary or appropriate tension. Then when you're ready to release, just flip the handle up.

That's all there is to it.Because it can easily connect and disconnect, one easy and the other being really fast, this is also a great feature if one of the attached turnbuckles covers your truck's fuel tank door. Just flip up the handle, unhook the turnbuckle, move it out of the way and you're ready to fuel up. Place it back into position, make sure the tension's applied, and then you're ready to hit the road.That's going to do it for today's look at the Torklift locking fast gun turnbuckles.
