This may be the smallest of small projects, but I'm glad i did it.
I always had my shovel quick-fisted to the inside of my wheel well in the cargo area of the truck. Not a big deal but not the best place for it. Wasted inside space and a pain to get to if I had cases in the back.
So - i made these clamps to go on the side rail of my roof rack. Had some stainless hardward to use. Currently they are drying with a coat of paint....
Pic shows them mounted on a piece of stock thats the same as my roof rack. - I'll only put it on when I plan on going off road/on trips
Very secure - doesn't rattle at all. - makes me feel like I had a productive Tuesday night
I think I may try to do something similiar with the Hi-lift, but I'll probably not use quick fists for that.
