Chainsaw Rack for Open Trailer

Interested if anyone knows of /owns a chainsaw rack for open trailers? I found this image online and it is kind of what I was interested in but this is just a patent from what I can tell.

So how about it - anyone have a rack (lockable preferred) that is made for open trailer or has anyone seen one?

Thanks

Michael

I don't think you need all that. Just make something the bar can slide into would be all you need. That looks like they were trying to over think the idea.

Yes, it does not have to be that complicated - but ensuring it is secure is obviously important. So how about it - does anyone have anything that they are currently using or anything they have seen that looks appealing?

There's companies that make them to mount to your atv. Maybe you could look into that and make one of those work on you trailer.

My first chainsaw "rack" was the plastic carrier that came with saw. Bolted it to the fender and it lasted 2 years.

That is a drawing of the Gridiron rack, by Novae. I have had a few of those, it holds it securely and can be locked. It can mount by itself or on their posts.
