Securing your Jobox to your truck bed is an important safety procedure that can help ensure its contents stay safe while in transit. Although it might seem like a simple task, there are a few key steps involved that must be taken to ensure your Jobox is securely attached to the truck bed.
The first step is to gather the materials needed. You will need two ratchet tie-downs, four bolts and nuts with washers, and an appropriate drill bit to make holes in the truck bed for the bolts. Additionally, you may need some sealant or caulking material to ensure a water-tight seal around the bolt holes.
Once you have all the necessary materials, it’s time to begin installing your Jobox. Begin by positioning the Jobox on top of your truck bed so that it sits evenly on all four sides.
Once positioned correctly, make sure it’s level before drilling any holes. Use the drill bit to make four holes in each corner of the truck bed for the bolts, making sure each hole is at least an inch away from any edges or sides of the Jobox itself.
Next, use your sealant or caulking material around each hole before inserting a bolt and nut with washer combination into each one. Tighten them securely and then attach one ratchet tie-down onto each side of the Jobox using its corresponding bolt and nut combination. Make sure they are tightened securely as well before moving on to securing them to your truck’s frame rails or wheel wells using additional ratchet tie-downs.
Finally, double check all connections and make sure they are secure before driving away with your secured Jobox in tow!
Securing your Jobox properly is essential for ensuring its contents remain safe during transport, so following these steps can help give you peace of mind knowing that you did everything necessary to protect them while on the road!
Conclusion: By gathering all necessary materials beforehand, positioning your Jobox correctly on top of your truck bed, drilling holes for bolts in each corner of the job box itself and attaching ratchet tie-downs securely, you can easily secure your job box safely and effectively onto any truck bed without hassle!
