    Opinions on Fork Clamps?

    Hello,
    I'm in the market for a few fork clamps to mount in the bed of my truck. There are a number of them out there, and I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on which perform best? Best bang for the buck? I think I'd like something lockable... I don't need integrated locks- a padlock would be fine... I'd like something durable, corrosion resistant, secure + affordable... What say you?

    Thanks!
    Bob

    I think that Delta have a padlockable feature. They're on the lower cost side too.

    Other than that, they look pretty much the same to me. I think that the last pair that I bought were Saris brand.

    I used to make my own but they ended up costing almost as much as the premade ones that I buy.

    I use the Thule and they were only 20 bucks or so. I think I would get the kind with the lock bracket if I had to do it all over again. Of course it's no big deal to attach a cable lock on it now.
