    I use the gray electrical conduit straps (u shaped things) to hold the tubes to the boards 2 per tube and they work fine.. I spray the whole thing white before I mount it just for looks..

    Hey I have seen people around here with rod holders that was bolted for the truck and they seem like it worked pretty good for them

    I've got one that I haul my craps rods one. I took some pvc pipe and cut it into 16" pieces. I then cut a groove in the top of the pipe so the reel will actually set down in the pipe. I then attached the pipe to the board with bolts. Had to drill a hole in the back side of the pipe. I think I put 6 holders on one board. I didn't permanently attach mine to the tool box. I just layed the board on the box and took two rachet straps and ran around the tool box to hold it on there. When I put my rods in the holders, I took a small bungee cord and hooked it to the bottom of the pipe and then ran it up and hooked it to the bar on the front of my reel. I got tired of laying my rods in the back of the truck, taking a chance of getting the tip broke off when I closed the tailgate. With this holder the rods are up over the tailgate. No chance of em' getting broken.

    You might want to look in the library at some pvc holders different folks have come up with.
