Are there less expensive and for that matter smaller components that can be used on our factory tie down system. What i am looking for is something with a simple fold flat type loop.

something that looks like this...

I saw a post where someone was using "channel nuts" used to hang electrical conduit
along with eye bolts in the Utili track rail.

I think he got them at Home Depot... a few bucks a set if I remember right

I have the factory tracks installed, and for that matter the 4 loops that come with it as well but i was looking for smaller attaching points.

Just the loop part that might fold flat...

Yeah, I scraped my factory tiedowns... way too bulky.

This is a pic of the channel nut/eyebolt setup. It doesn't fold flat, but seems to work for cheap.
What brand and model bed cover is on your truck?

Mine? It's an Undercover Flex #FX51012 for the short bed w/ Utili Track.

It took a little adjusting to get the right amount of snug against the bed
rails, but in a hard rain there's just the smallest amount of in the support
rails. I'm real happy with it.

Where did you get your HiLift mount and the tiedowns on the bed floor? They look different from the others.

The tiedowns on the bed floor are D-rings w/straps from Harbor Fright. I anchored them with
the same Channel Nuts I used on the side rails along with socket head screws.

The HiLift mounts are homemade from some 3/16 bar stock and other hardware I got at Home Depot,
alond with some plastic blocks I had sitting around the garage that I use for woodworking jigs.

Awesome...I like the setup. I think I have a weekend project now I can do in the garage since it still wants to snow here.
