Safety Device Cage Clamps

Anybody ever use something like these to mount something to their SD cage? I'm trying to figure out how to mount my awning without defacing the cage.

If not, what did you use and where did you buy it from?

You're going to have big time clearance issues with something like that if you're looking to mount it just over the doors. There's really not much room between the cage and the roof in most places, so clamps can be a little tricky.

Take a look at these. It's a slick design that isn't obtrusive and offers a very strong clamp. As long as your awning doesn't weigh a ton they ought to serve you well.

You can find these on eBay sometimes in various sizes. Might be what you are looking for.

Thanks Ash. I measured the cage and it measures 1.77'ish. I just emailed the maker to see if it will fit.

Russell, Those look like they may work too. I'm wondering how much slack they have.

They work very well on the SD cages. I actually have four on a truck that's here right now. You'll scuff the paint just a hair when installing the ring, but you really won't find any bar clamps that don't damage the cage to some extent.

The problem with the two piece clamps like Russell mentioned is that they're too thick to fit between the cage and the gutter. Here's a comparison I just took so you can see how the two differ.

I use the 1.75" fabrication collars from Rock Hard 4x4. Ballistic Fab also as some decent ones.

I've got some nice thin ones at home that will work, I'll post a pic when I get home.

Here are some thin ones from a batch I had made a few year ago. Perfect for light duty applications.

Those alloy ones Ash posted are pretty slick.

Here is a correctly orientated photo and a shot of the bracket mounted to it. I'll probably get a few more to mount a few antennas and a work light on the rear of the truck.

Actual SD cage dimension is 45mm....I keep toying with doing some clamps that are *actually* that size, but never seem to get around to it. But yeah the 1.75" is pretty darn close.
