    Good idea! I found when I tie to my rack you have to get creative to avoid things sliding around. Great solution. I'd cut the bolts to length and use some blue loctite on them.

    If you want to put that rack to use we do a Dual Sport Ride in Green Ridge State Park the first weekend in May. Last year we had 9 TWs

    Good idea!
    What else works in a no-scratch non-snagging soft sided approach is a prussik. 8 to 12 inches of soft grippy 1/4 line works great, slides along the tube easily without a load yet sets tightly once you pull on loop to secure your gear.
    Knowledge in general of various uses of the prussik knot can be a life saver whether it is fashioning an ascender to climb rope or simply belaying a tight come-along or which line while you re-set to get a better purchase.prussik-knot.jpg

    Right troll!
    Who knew your shoelaces can have so many uses and actually be a lifesaver if you ever have to climb a rope in an emergency.

    P.S. - my shoelaces once made the difference between spending the night out in the desert in a downed helicopter awaiting rescue and flying the bird out for a cold beer and a warm bed. Never ever give up! ...but that is another story, catch me around a campfire sometime.
