How to attach Ford Ranger bedliner

I pickup up a used over the rail bedliner today. I see it has something that looks like clips on it that attaches to the back of the bed (right under the sliding rear window)... but what about attaching the rest? back towards the tailgate, the bedliner kind of sticks out into the bed and won't stay in place... there must be some way to attach that???

I just pulled an under the bedrail liner out of my F150 today. And that was held down by the bed rails and the tie downs in the truck.

this is an over the rail bedliner and it doesn't interface with the tie-downs at all... but that does bring up another question... now that this bedliner is in, I've lost my tie-downs because this covers them up. How can I fix that?

Yeah I would cut holes. With my liner the rear tie downs were outside the liner and the front tie downs were inside the liner and it comes with holes in the liner for the front ones. I think that is the best way to do it.

yeah... its hard to describe, but my tie downs are just like metal brackets on the side of the bed, two in front and two in back... and they are kinda recessed - meaning, when this bedliner is in place, even if I cut a hole, the tie down would not stick through the hole because the bedliner does not lay flat against the wall of the bed in that area... its off the wall a good 5 or 6 inches.. so even if I cut a hole, I don't know how useful it would be.

Yup I know what you mean. Mine is exactly the same way. I took my liner out otherwise I would go out and snap a picture for you.
