Durabilt Cargo Bar Review- Video

Durabilt Cargo Bar Review

So, whether you're just preventing some of the load from shifting around, or you're just kinda dividing up and organizing all of your boxes in a certain way. I kinda think of it as whenever you're checking out at a grocery store, you have that little divider that you put in between your stuff and the person in front of you, it's kinda like that. So you can pull up to a loading dock and you can be like, "Grab all the boxes up to the first bar, "you're good to go." So it's gonna have a lot of different applications. Helping it not move around, and also just kinda organizing all of your load. So let's just say we're all done and we want to take this thing down, all you gotta do is just come down to this little mechanism right here, and there's gonna be a big lever, and then a little chrome piece. So it's kinda like the little latch that's on the back of a box truck. more

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today we are looking at the Truxedo Cargo Retriever for truck beds here at etrailer. One big reason that you might want a Truxedo Cargo Retriever, like what I have here, is if you don't wanna get into your truck bed, if your truck is too high, maybe you're on the short side like me, or you're just in a hurry. You might wanna get this in order to grab whatever's inside your truck bed and bring it to you. This is a fixed cargo retriever that is 52 inches long.

Du-Ha Telescoping Du-Hooky Cargo Retriever Review

What's going on everybody, Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the DU-HA DU-Hooky. So, if you have some stuff in the bed of your truck and it's a little too far for you to grab it, whether you just have a short-bed or a long-bed this is going to help you get those items. So we can have it like this, about five foot, or we can rotate it counter-clockwise and then tighten it up clockwise to make it into a seven foot pole. So we can grab some buckets or a big water jug. Basically, it's just a little long arm to grab some of those stuff that's a little out of reach. more

Speaker 1: A common problem with an open cargo area like a truck is that whenever we load things up they're going to naturally want to slide around, especially if we come up to a stop sign, take off from a stop light, or go around a corner quickly. It's just going to make it that much easier for everything to slide especially with a smooth cargo area, you don't have a bed liner, or even with a plastic bed liner.Now, as you can see with our cargo bar in place, it is keeping our items nice and secure and preventing them from sliding around too much. One thing you do want to keep in mind if you have some extremely heavy or fragile items, this bar is not going to replace a tie-down, and you still want to make sure you secure those items properly. more

Once my pads are making contact with the side walls of the bed of my truck, I would take the foam hand grip right here, and I would simply rotate it to make any fine tune adjustments. That's really easy to do because each foot pad is connected to a threaded post that feeds into the cargo bar a little bit, which makes it really nice to make sure that this is in place, that it's very tight, and that it's very secure.Now, when I'm ready to release or remove the bar, all I have to do is come to it, lift up on the easy release lock, and then this can slide back into the rest of the bar. more
