I finally received my luggage rack from Morgan via my dealer. Question for those of you who have installed them. Since the brackets that clamp to the roll hoops are essentially made to fit a vertical bar, which the morgan doesn't have, how have you guys attached them? The new style is designed with removable pins so you can easily remove the rack. But the brackets need to be on a horizontal plane for this to happen. If you tighten the brackets on the slightly slanted rack, they natrually want to turn to follow the roll hoop. Did you try to ignore this tendancy and tighten them down anyway? Use 3M tape to keep them in place and keep from maring the hoop? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Any chance you have them installed correctly? They only fit ONE way or the angle is like, WTF?

Use lamp truss brackets - They make it so easy to remove the rack

Michael, I think you are right, I had them installed at too high an angle on the roll hoop. I now see that there is only one way to install them. I've pulled it off and adjusted them on the bar and now they seem to set better. Thanks.

Yep, only ONE way! I made the same 'wtf' error. They're actually a beautiful, sophisticated piece of kit when installed correctly.
