Every Pickup Needs Perimeter Tie downs

Bring a trailer featured an amazing, original condition Datsun pick-up truck and bidding has already reached a lofty $10k with 15 hours to go.

At some point, aesthetics dictated that tie downs around the perimeter of the bed were too ugly for the consumer market. What a shame. Tarping a load without them is a total pain in the neck. It seems every full size, alley trolling metal collector or gardening truck has had coat hooks screwed in the side to compensate. Always crooked, surface metal always dimpled where they are pulling out.

I wonder if there is commercial bed rail that integrates simple hooks - not an 'integrated, patented loading system.'
