LAY-Z-RAK 1 Bike Kit everything needed to add to your existing rail setup.
Designed to be used in the same way as our popular Fork Mount system. Fitted at the rear of the van giving full access to secure each bike.
Add to an existing rail in your vehicle, drop in supplied sliding nuts and add your LAY-Z-RAK.
- Bike wheels do not need to be removed
- Fits a range of tyre and wheel sizes
- Needs no adjustment
LAY-Z-RAK 1 Bike Kit ticks all these boxes, LAY-Z-RAK will hold 26″- 29″ wheel diameters and tyres 18mm (Road bike) – 2.6″ (MTB)
When not in use the LAY-Z-RAK Lays flat so it doesn’t get in your way.
*Note LAY-Z-RAK has been designed to be mounted at the rear of the van (Tailgate end). Braking moves the weight of the bikes toward the front of the vehicle, LAY-Z-RAK grips you bikes during this process.
It’s simple to fit too, add to your existing rail, slide in 6 x T-nuts, Position the LAY-Z-RAK on the rail and attach with the 6 x stainless screws. Next add the flat bungee that slides through the lower plate, you are almost there, now add your bike. We recommend positioning the front wheel into the rack whenever possible as this gives the best stability when in transit. Top and tail also works. Now you need to secure the bike, with the wheel sat in the lower plate, lift the Top plate forward so it sits over the top of the wheel, this will hold the bike in place. Connect one side of the bungee to the top plate then lastly pull the other side of the bungee and connect with the top plate.
Your Tyre should sit touching both V’s of the lower plate and the V of the top plate.
Just one more thing ! we supply a velcro strap for your rear brake lever, wrap it around the handlebar grip and brake lever. Making sure to apply the brake before doing up. This stops the bikes from moving when you pump the brakes in the vehicle!!
Your LAY-Z-RAK 1 Bike Kit is now ready to be used.
Removing the Bike:
To Remove: hold onto the bike, remove the velcro strap, drop the bungee straps, lower the top plate and wheel the bike out.
*Note LAY-Z-RAK should only be used on rails that are either screwed to a van floor or vehicle specific that fits to the factory mounting points.
