Tire and shovel/axe carrier for Yakima loadwarrior

Recently picked up a loadwarrior since it was on sale and want to be able to mount my spare tire, axe and shovel on it. However the mounts from Yakima seem pretty expensive, essentially the shovel/axe carrier is just a couple of clips. I was curious to see if anybody here has any homemade brackets for the axe and shovel, or a good way to mount the spare tire to the basket. I have straps and bungee cords but would prefer something a little more long term than that.

That's more like it, I'll have to try out when set and see how they do before I order the second. $45 for axe/shovel brackets seemed a little excessive. Thanks!

Any ideas for a tire mount? I'm getting a full size spare in a few weeks when I swap out my tires and just feel like a spare tire won't do me much good if it's already punctured from the trail ride.

The clips are strong I installed the shovel on one side and an axe on the other side in the garage. The door was hanging low and when pulled out of the garage I took the door with me. The shovel stayed on lol.

Here is a pic with the axe.

Are those the Yakima brackets or the ones that rescue linked? And taking out my garage door is one of my biggest fears about the roof basket haha.

They are the Yakima brackets, I just put chain lock around the axe, didn't want some nut job to rip it off my rack. Make sure measure your garage and make sure when you open the garage door it opens all the way

Haven't researched tire mounts. Never planned on needing one but when all else fails, search amazon. I have found some if my best deals on there.
