Extreme Trimmer Rack (greentouch) question

Ok, so I now have a 5x10 trailer with the round pipe top, and was wondering how yall secure the extreme trimmer racks to that style of rail?

I had a nice set of racks on my other trailer that was stolen and now I have to rebuild. I purchased a KM130, and because its a split shaft, im thinking the extreme rack might be the only way to secure and lock them to the rack. I will be getting a second KM130 today, and will have an edger attachment on one, and a straight shaft trimmer attachment on the other. Hoping they will work out, but would like to see how yall with Round top rails on the trailers mount the Extreme racks. Any pics or advice is appreciated....thanks.

Found this video on youtube of how one guy mounted his. I think that way of mounting it could work on your round top rail trailer and be very solid if you have room between the front of the trailer and the fender for the lowest trimmer position.

However, I think the way I would do it if I were in your position is get a piece of channel steel or similar (maybe a piece of 2x5inch rectangular tube with one side cut off) and weld it to the round top rail with enough room between the inside of the channel and the top rail to get the washer and nuts on for the rack. Really there are a lot of options if you can weld or know somebody who can and would be willing to help.

Yep, thanks. I went looking around and found the PDF for the install at the website, and found how they use the mounting plate on round pipe trailers.

Ill probably weld them in addition to their mount to increase security a bit more.
