    Thanks.
    Before I bought the truck I measured dozens of times to see if I could just back it in at an angle and everything said yes.
    When I got the shell I did not take into account the sloping angle of the back hatch.
    Could make it fit by turning the bars to full lock but did not like that method so my slider idea was born using the material I'm most used to wood.

    I designed/made this rack and fork mounts to fit 4 bikes in my DC Short bed WITH a truck box...
    To access the truck box, I pull a pin from each side and rotate the crossbar upward, can even do it with 1 or 2 bikes still attached just have to drop the tailgate so they can back up. VERY sturdy and it was free minus a few hours of build time. Not the prettiest thing, still need to paint and make some adjustments but VERY functional

    Holy frickin' hell! I could mount a motorcycle onto these things if it would fit.

    I thought they must have sent the wrong items when I picked up the box. Calling these things beefy doesn't do them justice. Between their mass and the built in locks, I'm real glad I didn't use my old Delta mounts with washers and screws.

    Thanks to all on the forum that recommended these mounts.

    If its not to late, before you install can you take a pic of all the pieces? Mounting brackets, screws, and the mounts them selves?

    This video shows all the parts and their use quite well, although I found these cheaper than from the company that posted the video.

    Has anybody ever mounted their bikes sideways (Using side rails)? Is that a bad thing to do? I have a toolbox so may need to mount it sideways....

    I get my Rockymounts tomorrow. I wanted them for the beefy lock. I don't plan to be away from my bike for a long time, but definitely want the security for when we stop to eat at a restaurant or something. But after seeing the video above, I'm disappointed. It looks like they are attached with standard allen bolts. What's to stop a thief from undoing the bolts and taking the bike and the mount? It would only take a couple minutes.

    In the locked position the thief SHOULDN'T be able to access the bolts, otherwise the locking feature would be useless. It's hard to tell in the video though. Interested to see your results.

    Thanks for posting that! I have had my eyes on the RM Clutch SD for a while. A few posts up, you can see i got Delta ones that work, but are not as "user friendly", and i had to make my own mounting hardware for the bedrail.....

    If you don't mind; how much did you pay for the mounts?

    I initially thought that, but wouldn't a cut down allen wrench easily get in there?
