hey folks so ive got a backrack with five 6" lights on it, but in the summer I used to put my kayak in the back and lean it on the rack.
was looking for some ideas to make them fold forward or back, on some hinges and pins to lock it in place so the kayak can rest there.
but just putting hinges under wont work.. wont clear the BR posts...
think this is what ill do, ...excuse the terrible ms paint photoshop! the green centre will rotate between the rack posts, maybe it'll go in like the tailgate is held on? (tube over tube then half tube on the other side) naaam sayin? then it comes off quick. held with pins, the bar should be strong enough to strap a kayak to?
if anyones got opinions or sees serious design flaws, or just a better idea... haha dont be shy
but i think this will work, should be fairly simple to fab as well.
