DIY [#38] ~ Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform–Recovery, 01/07

Uneventful–back on the van

With confidence, I can remove [for cleaning the van] and replace it with little effort. I would not expect to do so more than 4 times a year.


DIY [#38] ~ Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform–Harmony, 01/07

Near perfect balance–harmony

I think safer as well. Granted, my platform stand removes the risk of a suspended load, even if attached to ceiling joist. My concene was matel failure an one corner resulting in sucessive metal failure because of load. Inspection of the load loops is inportant as is all the rigging. I wonder what my mechanical engineering son would say of his dad’s work???
