Review of the ProGrip Truck Bed Stake Pocket Retractable Tie-Down Anchors


Hey, guys. Today we're going to be checking out the ProGrip Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for truck bed stake pockets. These things come in a quantity of two, so you'll definitely want to pick up as many as your truck bed needs. They offer 1,000 pound weight capacity. They're going to be a great addition to your tuck bed. Just like I mentioned, when they're not in use that loop retracts down into the base giving you a nice, clean look.

They're a heavy duty anchor point. They're constructed out of stainless steel along with the hardware inside the base that way we don't need to worry about any rust or corrosion.All in all, they're just an additional accessible anchor point for our truck bed. I've got four installed on my 2016 F-150. I would like to mention that if you do have a plastic bed rail cap, like I have here, and the stake pocket is off center, it will look like this when the ProGrip anchor is installed. You can see how we've got a nice gap there.

You can fill that in with some caulk, if you'd like, or you can simply leave it. It's not hurting anything. They still have 1,000 pound weight capacity.Please note if you have an on top of the bed rail tunnel cover, the ProGrip anchor points may not work. Mainly because that rail usually covers up half the stake pocket or all of the stake pocket. But if you have in in bed tunnel cover where the rail is on the inside of the bed, they'll work out just fine.

Now these should work with most stake pockets. We're going to go ahead and give you some dimensions that way you can decide whether or not it's going to look good on your truck.They measure 3-1/2" long, 2-1/4" wide, and 2-1/4" deep. The hardware is included. Now I mentioned earlier that they come in a quantity of two, depending on your configuration or your truck bed size, you may want to pick up either four or six. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

If you have a plastic bed rail cap, like I have here, you'll need to remove the cover. You can use a flat head screwdriver. Just pry it up. It should pop right out. Now when you get your ProGrip anchor point, it's going to be completely assembled.What we'll need to do is loosen or completely remove the two Phillip's head screws. I'm going to take my gun here and completely loosen those up. Now I recommend leaving them in place, that way you don't have to worry about losing them. Once we've got it completely loosening up, it should disconnect just like that. Then we're ready to drop it in place. Now I'm going to angle it slightly, but now this black tab here is going to raise up and this is what holds it in place when we tighten everything back together, so we need to get the lip underneath the metal portion of the bed. So we're going to drop it down on an angle and we can rest it down.Now the way we tighten up our screws is we grab the anchor and raise it up. Now you'll want to be sure that you've got the cap here exactly where you want it. What I'm going to do it start tightening it up and then I'll adjust it further. I'll just do a little bit at a time. And I'll alternate between the two sides. I just basically want to make sure that it covers the entire cutout of the stake pocket. Once I've gotten it started and got where I want, I'll go ahead and fasten it the whole way down.And then we can go ahead and repeat the same process on the other three stake pockets. When you're ready to put them to good use and tie down your gear, we can pull up that anchor point loop, connect our hook or strap, and pull it tight, and we're good to go. I will however tell you that over time the loops can get bound up and they may get stuck. If this happens, you can simply take a flat head screwdriver and raise those up. If you'd like, you can even hit it with some lubricant and those should loosen up over time.
