Crossbar Clamps

Has anybody had any luck repairing these things? Can you spot weld a piece in there? Maybe like a section of a thick nail. I know you can purchase them new, but trying the least expensive route. 3 of the 5 I have are like this. Any suggestions? Came on my truck like this. One set was fine but the other set was just screwed down tight. When they loosened the bar would start sliding around on the cage bars.

I don't see why you couldn't repair it, but what are they made of? It looks like it is aluminum.

They're cheapo cast aluminum. For the ultimate cheap you can hose-clamp the top section to the bars.

Thanks for the suggestions. Might as well ask. Anybody out there have 1 good bottom. Will trade you for two broken bottoms and a one top. Bottoms are broke off like the one in the pic. Top is in good shape and all the bracket's threadings are good. Have the bolts as well.

Wouldn't 4 of these make a great upgrade?

I have been thinking about it.

I agree. I have seen those before. So lets say I want to attach a crossbar to the top of one. Where can I get the top of those Drilled and threaded to accept a bolt?

I would think a tap and die is all you would need. Any machine shop should be able to do it. But I am not the one to ask.
