Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeB Expensive but a good value.
I wanted tie downs that were of good quality that I could use as tie downs but also to be used to fasten down a temporary bed cover. The tie downs are held in place with 2 screws. Once in place I was able to remove 1 screw and use the threaded 1/4-20 hole for my temporary cover. The tie down didn't move with only 1 screw in it while I fastened the cover down with the longer screws I purchased. Additionally, the part that goes below the sheet metal is captive so it doesn't come apart even if you remove both screws. I have read other review where the reviewer said the screws were of poor quality and the screwdriver tore up the screw recess. I don't know if different screws were used in the past but the screws in the units I bought seem to be of high quality stainless steel. I checked them with a magnet and there wasn't any magnetic attraction at all, as you sometimes find with lesser quality stainless steel. The screws are #3 phillips and were not damaged in any way as I installed the tie downs. I put a little anti-seize compound on the threads and I don't anticipate ever having any problem. The tie downs also fit perfectly in the stake pocket opening of my Ford Super Duty plastic bed rail cover that came on the truck from the factory. I don't often write reviews but other reviewer helped me to choose this brand and also the superior design and quality construction of the product deserves to be noted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer A very good product for use in older trucks
On old trucks, cargo tie downs were not usually part of the truck and you had to add you own. These work very well, are strong, disappear when you don't need them and they are removable if you want to use your stake holes for stake sides or move them to another truck they will fit. A pretty good deal for something so useful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug I like them
I like these anchors. They are easy to install. There is a lot of plastic in them, but they seem pretty solid. I've tied off to them many times now pulling both up and sideways, so far they have worked flawlessly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russ They work great and look good
The wife suggested I buy this model versus a cheaper one. She thought that since they tuck away they looked better. A bit pricey but they look good and work great
