Default PVC to truck bed stake hole connector or coupler?

I'd like to connect some 3 inch PVC into that hole.

1. Duh.. is there an actual name for this hole? truck bed stake hole?
2. Anybody know.. does anybody make connectors that might fit snug into this hole and can somehow be coupled with some 3 inch pvc piping? or will have to fabricate something. I've searched and not finding much.


Many Thanks!

Good luck with the project. The term is "stake pocket". I have not seen anything besides truck racks fabbed from steel matched to the dimensions of the pocket.

I'm having a custom aluminum sports rack/ roll bar fabed.. but won't be using the stake pokect to secure it. But do want to connect that rack for a custom temporary tent I will build from 2 inch PVC that will extend beyond the tailgate some 3+ feet. I'll be able to through over a thick tarp and have an instant tent for camping.

Below is just a mock up of just the rack. 3 inch OD 1/8 aluminum will be be very light and hug the cab's profile was much as possible. Pipes facing back will be used in a number of design configurations as the top anchors. When closed with a u shaped pvc peace will creates an above cab plaform for carrying my kayak or lumber. Somewhat inspired by Nissans rack design appears almost as guns or dual mufflers facing back. also the cross pipes from the rails will have molded handled so you can climb up on the tires when when loading. Will be painted black and then loaded with stickers.

I know it's a bit out there, but I want and need something real custom back there and yeah I know it's not for everybody .. Looking at the rendering, I think it iwll look kick ass .. but that's just me.



I saw this at home depot the other day. interesting as well.

Nope, you can't put a round peg in a square hole. You should have learned that in Kindergarten.

You can't use PCV (not strong enough anyway, will bow and flex like crazy) but you can use wood or steel to fab up something. You can probably use some 2x2 sections of wood or get some steel sections at Home Depot and cut them to shape. Those are the more versatile and stable materials.
