the adapter give you the extra space you need to avoid banging your gear on the rack
I have a few questions about other products and have not been contacted back with answers.
The risers are perfect to use for a shovel and are.
I used a bike U-bolt lock to secure them to the rack, preventing theft of the shovel & Axe.
The risers keep my shovel from rubbing against the plates! Works great!
Another quality product from the guys at Xtrusion Overland.
