The Weight-Mate provides much better support than the previous "conventional" ideas of adding either messy sandbags or extremely dangerous cinder blocks to the bed of the truck without the added worry of safety or damaging your truck! No worries about cinder blocks flying thru your rear window, no logs to fly out of the bed, no messy sandbags to get wet!

Weight-Mates low profile design allows you, to still use the bed of your truck! The extremely durable Rotationally Molded product allows for heavy loads to ride on top of the weight-mate tanks. In fact, the design and construction of the Weight-Mate units is so durable, the design engineer purposefully designed the product so that he could haul his Harley-Davidson motorcycle on top of them with no issues!
