Yes I use them for almost everything where a U-bolt would be. Much stronger and less frame/rack damage. Here is a pic of some aluminum ones on my Quick Release Chainsaw/Tool mount on the rear rack.Thanks! I might order some just to have around,I'm always working on ATV's and they would be much better than the u-bolts.
The aluminum ones shown in the last pic are part number 6436K73 $5.17 each.can i get a link to the ones your are useing cuz everyone i looked at on that sight was like $10 or more a peice
