I give up.

How the hell do you install this thing.

I thought the straps would cross at the back of the tyre but that does not look like it.

When done what it looks like it is very loose and I reckon would easily fall off, so I am bug#%^d.

Some pics would help as it came with no instructions.


Thanks for any help

G'day Rich
Have one on the camp trailer, had to loosen the wheel to get the straps behind it, don't recall crossing them over though, just slide down either side of the tyre, and tighten the straps with the buckle, just pull on them to tighten, I think there was quite a bit of strap hanging loose, which I tucked in some where.. Stays on there permanently, that one we use for our dirty laundry... Have the explor oz one for the car, that holds the rubbish which we place in bags.. Maybe your bag is for a larger tyre size, they do come in different sizes.. Our Explor Oz one, hang a big low on the ct, but perfect fit on the car. Good luck with it.. Cheers Odog

Thanks for that.
I thought there was only one size for the bushranger one but could be wrong.

It just does not seem to be stable and looks like it could easily fall off.

As the straps are on the side of to tyre, when you tighten them it slips off.

May be it is not big enough for my 19" tyres.

Would be nice if they provided instructions as it sure is not that obvious to me.


Thanks again,
Richard

Well after staring at it and calling it a few names I have managed to get it installed so that it will not fall off I hope

I added a few extra ties but should be ok I think

Still not impressed with the way it is attached

Hi Rich,

Haven't studied the Bushranger but the usual way for most of these is to pass the straps over the top of the wheel then cross them below the wheel mount to attach to the opposite side of the bag. Lift the bag up high on the wheel before tightening the straps.

Cheers
Allan

That is what I thought but these do not cross

It goes on like a back pack without any cross straps. It seems to be tight but I am concerned it will fall off when something in it

I have added another rubber strap at the back
Any way time will tell

A few pictures of how to install this thing would have helped.

Any way it is on I think/hope ??

Bushranger do say "Easy Installation and Removal" and I guess that it is the all-too-easy "removal" bit that is your concern! lol

They do come looking like a back pack but what stops you from crossing the straps? Mine (different brand) came with instructions to cross the straps but still seemed unstable until I added a link strap at the back. Your added rubber strap may do a similar job. I'm sure that I could design a better strapping arrangement.

Cheers

I did try to cross them but it is not designed that way

Although if I undid the straps it may work. The extra bit I added may stop it falling off altogether just drag behind the car ??

It goes not seem a good design to me at the moment time will tell

I had an earlier one that suffered a clip failure and became detached at the top. The bottom strap held and dragged the bag along the road until it opened and strewed all my rubbish down the Oodnadatta Track!

Those plastic clip-buckles are not too reliable.

One way to get rid of your rubbish

I will have to wait and see how it goes with some stuff it

I may add a few more straps for my peace of mind

Well I have done some bitching about this bushranger equipment so only fair to say something good.

I sent them an email yesterday asking if their were any instructions for the wheelie bag install.

I received an email this morning with instructions.

There are two methods to install, you can cross the straps but would have to pull them apart I think, not a big deal but at least you can do it.

However I think I have it installed ok at the moment. My set up is a bit different as I have 19" wheels and a plate under the spare tyre for the reversing sensors which makes it hard to get to the straps.

So thank you Bushranger for following up on my query. It is so nice to see.
