    im sorry that i'm just seeing this message. What I did is I tool a 3/8 button head bolt and drilled a hole in the center of it. I pushed the cable through the hole and put a spring on the backside of the screw, I then welded a small nut on the end of the cable so it couldn't pull through the hole in the bolt. I used a riv-nut in the bed side to screw the bolt/cable assembly through, the cable retracts into the stake pocket. When the tailgate is set down the spring compresses in the stake pocket, as you life the gate up the spring pulls the cable back into the stake pocket, I push the remainder in by hand. it works pretty well but I may end of changing to something different..
