    If you wanted to cut on your new rack the following photo shows you where you need to cut out metal to get latch to open up all the way. Photo is my TG2000 rack that I started using in 2008 and still in use today as seen in photo. Note I did not have to cut on my rack this is how it came.

    I need some racks for my trailer and don't want to spend a lot of cash. So the tg2000 is a good choice? No spinning around etc?

    Mine don't spin unless I really jolt the trailer around. I've seen others wrap the latch with tape like J&A Lawn Care did and that really locks them in.
