    I may get a set to mount a Rotopax.

    I found this post on your other thread. Posting here since you mentioned you check this one more frequently.

    Are you still making the other mounts to mount it vertically? If you are, I’m not sure which to purchase. I’m curious if the weight of the Rotopax may be too much for the rail over time? Seems like mounting it vertically can keep to Rotopax seated on the bed instead of it hanging. Not sure if that made sense haha.

    So the plan is to have the option to mount it where it rests on the floor but the mounts holds it in place. That way the weight is not sitting on the rails/mounts. Now i do not plan to pre cut holes for mounting the rotopax so you can set the height you want. Also it will depend on what size tank you bought...

    If you buy a 4 gallon tank then you will need 2 mounts, and that will be plenty for the weight of 4 gallons of gas. I would imagine that a 2 gallon tank would be fine on 1 mount also, but personally i still want the tank resting on the floor.

    As far as "an other set".... the other set is going to be specific for the side rails, currently i have a design that works for the head rails.

    Roto Pax mounts for the head rails are finally in! More details on the 1st page.

    Is the price still $30 for the universal mounts? On your website they are listed for $35. Just curious. Interested.

    These mounts work perfectly. I used some heavy duty Velcro at the bottom of the hi lift mount to reduce any vibration. Thanks @Zac of all trades!
