I purchased about 3' of Velcro & cut it into three equal lengths. I used small self-tapping screws to screw one end of the be co the the top of my rear wheel hub, behind the drivers side. Place your fishing rod on top of the hub and find a way it fits/lays flat. Secure your Velcro strips based on the rod positioning. Simply wrap the secured Velcro around the rod and you are good to go! If you remove the rod, the Velcro can easily be rolled onto itself and tucked away under the lip for the hardtop. It's hardly noticeable!
