I installed these and they weren't bad. I cut the holes bigger in the plastic bed rails and they went in fine. If I remember right, maybe the rear ones were a little tighter, but that was before cutting those holes a little bigger than they came. One of them shifted a little when I tied something down, but after tightening it more they have been fine. So far I've only used them to strap bikes (the pedal kind) down, so I'm not sure if a heavier load would make them shift a little. I only hand tightened them and did not crank them down hard, so I may be over thinking this piece a little. Otherwise, I'm very pleased with the tie downs and they have held up great for the 8-10 months I've had them. No rust or anything. I hope this helps and good luck, it is convenient to have the tie downs higher up.

Thank you Kertster. This definitely helps. You are right having those tie downs up higher definitely help. I need it more for home and family use. I am also thinking another alternative would be a tube rails. Some have tie down holes built into them.

I had 2 setup in the middle of the bed (front and back) to tie down 2 500+lbs motorcycles and worked just fine for over 7 years. They never rusted although needed to dig them out of dirt piling in there.

I'm planning on having the same setup in the rebel.
