The cargo cleats assist you in safely loading your truck bed. When you have a large load in the bed of your truck, you can use the cleats to fasten items down. There are four cleats in your vehicle. two on each side. To adjust the location of a cleat, rotate the nut on it counter-clockwise, until the cleat becomes loose. Then slide the cleat to the desired location, making sure to place in in one of the indents. Then, rotate the nut clockwise until the cleat is secured.
