Yes there is a nice big box at the shop.
Next week will see it installed. (and the leaky rear axle fixed) (and a couple of other things to).

Anyone have detailed installation instructions for this?

Most importantly do holes need to be drilled in the rear crossmember for the latch?

Brewie can you do a swing away version w/o a separate latch?
I'll call you when I get back from Indy next week.

Robert,
With any of the swing away's you that you don't secure you get rattle. This was one of the reasons for the original design with the clamp.


Initially the first round of these were made with a adjustable dog bone that would affix to the rear door and move the rack much like a stock carrier and clamp at the cross member.


In the end it only adds to the cost of production and when you are wheeling or normal driving...rattle. I think SG swingaways had the same problem.


just my 2 cents

pulling this back out from the archives, looking for some help. purchased one of these from another member and need to recreate all brackets. Anyone have any good pics or better yet a set of brackets that can be measure for re-creation? I'd like to copy the original design if possible. TIA.

Yep, I have a whole carrier that has been in the box for a few years, not installed yet. I can take pics for you if you want. Might take me a bit cause I'm busy.

Bump. Still looking for parts for this carrier. Have some good shots from member but would prefer the original stuff before something is made. Need both upper and lower brackets, and clamp/hasp setup for crossmember. Thanks.
