They are stops - so if you make your own divider somehow or have a large item that may slide back and forth in your box, you would have something to rest against.

If you have the utilitrac you should have 4 cleats as well from the dealer

They are slide stops for the utilitrack. I put mine on the very back end of my rails to stop my bed extender when I slide it back to use it with the tailgate down. I imagine you should have tie down cleats as well, my truck came with 4 of them.

The stops really don't do anything of value. I use the four corner rope hooks/loops more than the cleats.

The Stops 'might'(??) slow down a thief eyeing your sliding bed extender if he was unprepared...as in wrench-less.

perhaps but most thieves come prepared. why would anyone want to steal a bed extender? who knows? i don't see the point of having one. just let down the tailgate and tie down your stuff it's not going anywhere.
Usually the one who steals a bed extender is another frontier own which is why most brands won't sell the pieces separately. If you walk into a parts department it's pretty obvious if you have the extender but need to buy the hardware.
I have both an extender and a divider from this and my last frontier and have all the parts so if I sold it the BUYER could install it immediately.

I have used these stops along with longer bolts to mount accessories to the bed. In my signature link I have a 36" knaak box mounted in the bed. At one time I had them holding my hi-lift to the driver's side track and a shovel with quick-fists on the passenger. The stock bolts are designed to be non-removable. I ground off the first half dozen threads or so. Honestly, I have never used them as stops. To me they are just as useful as the tiedowns.

I didn't know what you were talking about but I guess my stops came installed at the end of the rails as they are there.

My biggest gripe about the bed extender is if you rotate it straight up it will lift right out off of the sliding mounts. Way too easy to steal so I put a bike cable lock on it.
