dinger My buddy uses ski rope, he can get matching colors many times, and has a way of braiding them to wrap the ends instead of a knot. It's a very clean looking job and they last forever.

1957plymouthhemi On my 76 I built my my own latches and used tailgate cables from a later model (they were available from the help section at the local parts store).



I cut off the chain holders on the outside of the bed and it came out pretty clean.



I figure I'll to the same on my 37 dodge

poncho62 On my 51 Ford, I moved the chains to the inside of the box and made these latches to keep it closed.

'37 pickup, what are you using to replace tailgate chains

I use a large Hardware Chain. www.grainger.com They have a lot of things we all could use. And they will do mail orders prepaid too with a Return Policy.

What sort of tail gate supports have you used to get rid of the stock chains?

Thansk,
