Hold Downs / Tie Downs

I apologize if this has been asked before. I've searched the various topics and posts but can not find it. I thought it was on this sight that someone was mentioning what they use to hold/tie down various items to their bumpers. Jacks, tools etc. One item I noticed appeared to be made of thick rubber type material and worked similar to a rather large wire tie.
Any ideas out there?

We store both our combination shovel/axe/pick and our Hi-Lift jack on our front bumper. But both our held in place with locking nuts to keep someone from walking off with them. Expedition Exchange has some hold-downs ( but they can't be locked...

There are two things to look for at Lowes, one is a large version of a wire tie, with soft copper inside and a foam tube around it. They're pretty cool. The other is the hose/cord velcro. They come in many sizes but the large 3/4" wide black ones for hoses are my favorite. I use them to secure all kinds of stuff- my Hi-Lift Jack handle has been secured with a smaller green one for 5 years.
and then
everything changed

Hello Jack,
Thanks a bunch. It was your post and link that I must of stumbled upon on another thread and could not find it again for the life of me. Those hold downs are the ones I remember seeing.

Jage, I will definitely head to Lowe's because at this point I'm all about cutting cost.
What I'm thinking about doing is attaching a few of these hold downs to the walls of my underfloor storage for essential items such as lug wrench, bottle jack etc. So I know where they are instead of having to root around for them after getting bounced around and buried down there. We did 120 miles of dirt road on memorial day weekend and everything got turned upside down. Not to mention the noise of everthing bouncing around. It was like driving inside an earthquake.

Thanks guys,

Another item that is worth looking at is QUICK FIST. They are a multi tie down assembly that is used for a bunch of things. I just got a killer deal on Ebay(No Joke, Don't was a good deal & it was from Ebay). I have seen Hi Lift jacks mounted with these units, as well as shovels, Mag Lights, Etc. I think the only draw back is......theres no locking mech to keep anyone from walking off with the item.
Don't say that I didn't Tell You So.......WOOT
