hay bruce i thuoght on the fridge slides they had counter sunk tie down points, but i seem to be wrong. but since there not there all you need to do is drill a hole through the slide and get a flat piece of metal with somthing welded on that no thicker than the fridge slide and srew it on from underneth, so then you will have somthing to hook somthing onto without anything protruding out. I dont even uderstand that so you have no hope sorryMore drive'n less talk'n

Hi Bruce,

Although my fridge is built in, it stands loose, and it can be removed. You fellas all drive too hard and that is why the fridge bounces around. Take it easy !

You could use eye bolts and tie the fridge down.

Bruce,
Maybe consult the roller draw & fridge slide man?
Fridge straps work well.

I have a trailblazer with handles for carrying fitted. I bought some smallish but strong chain that I used an equally small shackle to secure the chain to the handles. Then using an turnbuckle with one end hooked into chain and the other end bolted to my home made fridge slide. Turnbuckle tightened up secures everything in place so that if you are forced to stop in a hurry, the fridge wont be bouncing off the kids heads into yours. I also have a cargo barrier but I hate things rattling around. Works for me.Alpaca

Hi Bruce....

when I was reading through the Opposite Lock Catalogue, I came across a "cargo bar" - it's listed as a Ute accessory, and I don't know whether can be rigged up for your setup...anyway..it caught Mr. Al's attention, this is what the catalogue says..

"heres a great idea, moveable bar simply extends to lock your load in place - great for securing your fridge or space cases"

it's been added to "things for the lad" list...

cheers

Lyn [Mrs. Al]Laugh alot..life's too short not to....

the lad's "shed" !!!...or is that his castle?

My fridge slide is fastened to a sheet of ply. Holes strategicly placed in the ply utilises existing holes in floor of 100 series. These are rear seat anchor points (my rear seats are permantly removed but it can also be done with seats folded up) and child seat restraint. One has to remove the plates etc to get to holes. I can have my tools and shelf racking out, and the trailblazer? (its a copy) in place in less than 1/2 hour. (takes me longer to load the missus and kids)Wow! am I cute

In my truck the right hand rear seat has been removed(60/40 split fold seat) and the fridge mounted thus!
2 X 1000kg(rated)ratchet load binding straps though the handles them attached to the seat base mounting points, might seem a bit extream but hay it's never going to break away in a crash and seeing it's behind me in the truck it's the last thing I need passing through me if In a crash. Everything else lives in the back behind the cargo barrier.

what ever you do make sure it's strong! you might never have an accident but you never know when someone is going to fall asleep and drive into you! I pulled up at a crash when just a teenager where the toolbox in the back of a station wagon passed through the top of the drivers head into the passenger side of the other car, both dead, the other people who wear in the fronts of the cars lived!
Not Pretty!
