pioneer tool mounts

So I had this idea for awhile now and have been keeping my eye out for an old car bike rack at local thrift stores and craigslist. The other day i picked up them gem for $5 at a thrift store down the road.



I started with taking off the pieces that i wanted to use.





this is my rancho tire carrier. this is what i will be mounting these on but you would mount them to any tire carrier with enough real estate on it. or mount them on whatever.



cut down the strap things in half so you have a level surface to work with. make sure you dont grind to much off to where the rubber is very thin and fragile. i used my bench grinder and dremel but a hack saw would work as well.



next measure and drill where you want the rubber pieces to go



i know what you might be thinking i made sure it would hit my tire and wheel. make sure you have enough clearance if you do not take your spare off.



next step to 1/4 inch drill bit (thats what i used 1/4-20 2.5 inch bolts, you're tire carrier might be a different thickness so use the appropriate size bolts). my drill bit would have hit my tire but i used my mattock pick head to block the bit



now take the drill bit size you are using and drill a hole in the center of the rubber strap in the small valley.





now go get your hardware. I used 1/4-20 by 2.5 inch bolts with nuts and 1 inch diameter washers.



insert the bolt through the rubber strap



then mount it to the carrier





now throw your tool on there. I put my shovel there, but it will hold my axe just fine as well



I also mounted a couple more and threw my mattock handle on there.
