Finally built My new blower holder

Got tired of my green touch holders so i made my own.
I can just drop the blowers in without straps or brackets and they wont fall out.

looks good, but what keeps them from sliding out between the upper and lower supports? it looks like they could work their way out from the pics. I have a br600 and two Stihl Backback sprayers that I would like to secure in a similar fashion. Any more info on how you did it would be appreciated.

thanks.

clearance.
I physically grabbed the bottom -back edge of the blowers and tried to pull, twist, wedge, and work the blowers out and there is no way.

I "guesstimated" 1/2 inch clearance front and back and sides using an "L" square on the ground and looking from above (i don't have a caliper that large, and you want to consider the pull starter and padding in your guesstimation), and also how high I wanted the blowers to have to bounce (exactly straight up) before coming out.
I came up with (43"L) x (14"D) x (14"H)

one of the front supports keeping the blower from falling into the trailer is an inch lower because I simply had pieces that were already cut.

I should be able to start these while still in the box- saving me time and bending over at each stop.

Liberal application of Rustolium Gloss Black (which, I think, everyone should have in thier garage in bulk )
