Would yall look at this and tell me what you tthink????

The HF Pittsburg Mount fits almost perfecty between my two most forward D-rings.
I used a carabiner on one side a double snap hook on the other to secure the mount to the forward D-rings.

Have six straps on the bike to six different D-rings.

Thanks,

Mel

As long as it doesn't slide in either direction should be fine. If it slides the straps will loosen.

Well I screwed up the vinyl where plastic feet set while loading my bike!

Didn't tear it but it definitely left an impression.

Now to go look for some sofa coasters......

I had the same thing happen. I put a throw rug under the feet. No more problem.

I use a cheap rug under the chock and a hall rug leading up to the chock. This puts the chock and bike on a rug while traveling

My set up. Drove over 800 miles and nothing budged and is compact it is easily stored in small space. Modified chock with two bolts and nuts and the plastic turn knobs and two eyelet rings bolted on after drilling holes in Chock.
