*Designed to work with VW T5, T6 Cargo Hoop Mounting Holes Behind 2nd Row of Seats
Its a simple idea….. The vehicle has factory mounting points so why not use them to mount your multiple steads !! One twin slot rail 1340mm long with quick release fitting.
We supply a piece of 80mm wide x 16mm high x 1340mm long extrusion that has twin t-nut slots and 2 x end caps. There are 2 x 10mm wide x 20mm long machined slots at each end to give a bit of adjustment when fitting to the vehicles factory fitted fixing holes.
To fit remove 1 screw from each cargo hoop left and right, place supplied spacer on top of the cargo hoop, inline with the tapped hole, place the rail over the top and drop the supplied quick release hand knobs through and tighten, that’s it ready to add fork mounts.
Before purchasing this product we recommend checking that your van has enough space to accommodate your steads !!! SWB vans might be a little tight for room unless your riding something like a road bike, if you have a LWB van then your pretty much good to go, however you know what they say… measure twice buy once 😉
Fitting 1 – 2 bikes Once fitted to your vehicle the t-nuts (supplied with the Extrusion fitting Fork Mounts) just slip in from above so you don’t need to worry about bashing the end caps off. Your Fork Mount/ Mounts can then be dropped on, finger knobs located in the t-nuts and positioned straight or straddle both slots to angle the bars for closer nesting, then tighten.
Fitting 3 – 4 bikes Your going to need one of our off-set plates added to each of you fork mounts (these can also be added for 1-2 bikes 😉 These do exactly what it says on the tin, it allows your bikes to be off-set so you can nest them nice and close, There is no right or wrong way to fit them because it all depends on what size your ride is !
*Don’t worry if you have already purchased one of our surface mount Fork Mounts we’ve got you covered, just buy the separate fixing kit when adding the rail to your basket 😉
1340mm Rail has a fitting pitch from centre to centre of fixing point of 1265mm – 1285mm, if this doesn’t work for you then get in touch and we will see what we can do to help 😉
