I mounted mine curbside with the supplied bolts and then I had a friend skewer the bolts with a bead across them. This will stop anyone from unbolting your rack and walking off with your trimmers and also prevent the bolt from backing out from vibration.

mine didnt come with bolts..the uprights are made out of angle iron.. with a skinny little whole drilled in the bottom. one of them has little rubber hooks.. the other has a lock and holding thing. i was thinking maybe u bolts like on a truck axle. i guess they are goin all the way to the floor.. they are long enough

Is this a Trimmer Trap rack? Mine didn't have bolts either, I bolted mine on then tagged a weld on the bolt as was mentioned earlier.

Does anyone know of trimmer racks that mount on a truck.
I have a bedliner, so I'm looking for something that would fit into the top holes on the side of the bed.
