PostSubject: Sand track mounting bracketss   Sand track mounting bracketss EmptyMon Jun 25, 2012 11:58 pm

Hello to all,
Just purchased a new pair of "Terrafirma" 1.5m long sand tracks.

I now need to mount these on my lovely new "Brownchurch" full length rack.

My question is this:

Do you all use the brackets designed for the job, or will a good length of thick rope secured onto the tracks do the job !.

All advice appreciated.

Ed

If you use rope, someone could come along witha ggod knife goodby sand tracks.

If you use brackets maybe padlock on. clinking teacups

The man's right, bolt them and everything down.

The thing is, how often are you going to be using them - once in a blue moon I'd wager, but good to know they are there 'just in case'. When you're up the proverbial creek, at least you'll have a paddle! You may as well therefore bolt them down as if they are permanent fixture, so they will only be accessible to you should the need ever arise.

Different if you're going to entering winch challenges, in which case you'd have a couple of large wing nuts and padlocks, but for overlanding bolt 'em down properley.

Tm, you're often right, more than one way to be right.

I AM ALWAYS RIGHT BECAUSE I AM THE BOSS AND I PAY THE WAGES AND DECIDE ON THE BONUSES, except at home where she is the boss.

Not really a case of a woman showing me the way, in our case its a matter of teamwork where she deals with the house and other aspects of life I have no time to deal with.

Nothing stronger than a good team, and nothing beats a strong team.

And Rotten Row in Hyde Park, a 1,384 metres (4,541 ft) bridleway that runs along the edge of the park from Hyde Park Corner to the Serpentine. When constructed in 1690 it was lit with 300 oil lamps, in doing so it became the first artificially lit highway in Britain.

Opps! Wrong photo, this is Rotten Row. Rolling Eyes

It is not often that you will find yourself driving a car, being offered a digestive biscuit and hesitatingly ask "Does it have any sand in it?". It was at this point that we realised we were in the depths of a great place

Still prefer the beach volleyball, really can't think why? Tall women in that sport, better be careful she doesn't impale her hand on Big Ben's lightening conductor!
