Tie Down Loop for Interior..Anyone know where I can find something like this?

Greetings all,

I'm looking for a swivel D-ring, that's at the end of a single bolt. Basically, I'm looking to use the current mouting holes of the rear jump seats, to put some anchor points for securing some items on the wheel wells.

What I'm looking for, looks like the swivel that they use for gun slings, but at the end of a bolt, instead of a the pin attachment in the picture shown.
I've exhausted my sources online and local hardware stores...
so if anyone can point me to the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

Here's what the gun sling one looks like. I'm looking for basically the same thing, but one that I can use a nut to secure to the wheel-well.

Thanks,

-arbi

My master catalog is at home so I'm not sure, but I think they have something like that.

Thanks for the info Rod,

They have the heavy duty ones...that are $43/unit and are WAY more beefy than I need.
THis is just to strap down some first aid kit, or anything else that might be in the truck on top of the wheel well.

OK....
If the big ones don't work, try www.brownells.com
They should have about every rifle sling swivel on the market, there might be a style that you can adapt.

Try a trailer supply store. When I built the trailer for my dirtbike, they had all sorts of tie down points.

The eye bolt and the rap hangers would not bend to a semi-flat contour, which is why I'm not using them.
I'll check with EE and see what they have.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Thanks Michael,

I found what I was looking for...
in the form of...(all things...) a gun sling swivel!!

http://www.shootnhunt.com/catalog/JM...s/1000772.html

They even have it so you can remove the swivel..which would also work.

I know its not heavy duty, but for what I'm going to be using it for (lashing the first aid kit box, maybe the tent, or similar items with a velcro strap) I think it'll be good enough.

Thanks,

-arbi
