The last stake pocket tube you'll ever need

Kellytube is a specialized aluminum extrusion with the same outside dimensions as a 2” x 4” wooden beam. It is most commonly used as a stake pocket tube, replacing wood or other flimsy material. Since introducing it a few years ago, Kellytube is now a go-to product for truck and trailer manufacturers. It’s also very popular for fabricators looking for a structural, long-lasting material.

With the durability and added strength of an aluminum tube, say goodbye to rotten old wood that you have been wanting to replace for years. 

Give your truck or trailer a cleaner and nicer look with aluminum stake pocket tubes that will last for decades. Kellytube inserts come in a standard length of 193″ but we are happy to cut your pieces at any length. No minimum order required. You can also special order longer lengths.

Some other benefits of Kellytube

Enhanced strength: Extruded in 6061T6 aluminum, Kellytube is a very rigid, resilient material. It is the ideal stake pocket tube. Some other benefits of Kellytube include:

  1. Increased safety: The structural nature of 6061 means this tube will not break or deflect under the same stress as wood.
  2. Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of applications, Kellytube provides flexibility in design and usage. It caters to a diverse range of project requirements.
  3. Custom lengths: Available in up to 16’ lengths, Alcobra will cut and ship any length or number of pieces you need. Read more about our saw cutting services here.
