You know those fake stake pockets that manufacturers put on trucks nowadays, the ones that’re maybe 3″ deep and pretty much useless for anything but those pop-up hooks? Well, Master Lock has come up with a pretty cool use for one: turning it into a U-lock for locking up your tools.
The Truck Bed U-Lock fits into the stake pockets of most late-model full-size pickups from Chevy, Dodge, Ford, and Toyota, and once it’s locked, it can’t be removed from the truck. The hardened steel shackle and lock body resist cutting, at least enough to make a thief think twice about trying to saw through it. And a rubber keyway cover protects the lock from all the nasty, wet, and dusty stuff your truck encounters day to day.
Although the Truck Bed U-Lock lists for $42, you can find it for as low as $34. One last cool feature: You can re-key it to match your other Master Lock products, so your truck key ring doesn’t make you look like a janitor.
