The all-new 2015 Ford F-150 has great innovations that completely threw a curve ball into the otherwise repetitive pickup truck industry. Between the new powerful EcoBoost engines, and lightweight aluminum body, many of the F-150’s new features haven’t gotten much spotlight. But these convenient innovations are very clever and should be talked about more. One innovation more truck owners need to look into is the new F-150 BoxLink system.

What is it? This new feature, a class exclusive for the F-150, uses die-cast zinc cleats, which attach and lock into place in four locations of the bed. These handy cleats add four more tie down locations in addition to the four fixed ones, bringing the total to eight. This allows the pickup bed to be completely customized for your needs! And these die-cast zinc cleats are strong too; they can handle a horizontal/cross-box load of 275 lbs, and a diagonal load of 600 lbs. The new F-150 BoxLink system can make jobs easier with improved flexibility for tying down objects, as well as reducing clutter and making the bed of a truck a more organized space.

How to Use It:
The million dollar question! Now that you have this convenient system, how do you use it? We’ve compiled a quick write up and photo explanation of how to use the new F-150 BoxLink system!

1) Find the 4 tie down locations in the bed of the truck. (2 on each side)
