Automotive Cargo Hook

Perfect for reducing manufacturing costs and weight!

Finding ways to reduce the weight and cost of components without sacrificing strength or quality is a critical concern for today’s automotive engineers. EFC’s innovative Automotive Cargo Hook Tie Down uses high-strength steel in a unique design approach to help OEM customers do just that!


  • Reduced Weight - Thinner gauge, high-strength steel contributes to a 34% weight reduction while still surpassing all loading requirements
  • Improved Strength - Single-piece stamping technology, thinner gauge steel and a structural flanged hem deliver a 300% increase in overall strength, while a protective polymer coating provides superior corrosion and scuff resistance
  • Easier Assembly - An added protective polymer coating and slotted installation holes (which can accommodate multiple bolt sizes) improve ease of assembly
  • Reduced Cost - The new design costs less to manufacture and can be used across multiple vehicle platforms

EFC constantly looks for new ways to assist customers. Please let us know how we can help you!
