Easy-To-Make Tie-Downs For Pickups
"I recently had a need for some tie-down points on my pickup. It wasn't the first time I wished I had some and I knew it wouldn't be the last. So I decided to come up with a simple way to make moveable tie-downs that give me a lot of flexibility," says Bob Hudspeth, Era, Tex.
  "I took four common C-clamps and brazed 5/8-in. flat washers to the æfixed' end of the clamp. Then, to prevent paint damage, I covered the open face of the washer with a circle of plastic using contact cement. To attach ropes and tarp straps, I drilled a hole in each clamp and inserted an S-hook, which I closed into a loop.
  "Now I can quickly have from one to four tie-down points anywhere along the pickup bed."
