Hi ya all, just wondering if anyone out there has had any dramas with kaymar spare wheel carriers.
The problem that I have with mine is it being so hard to lock/unlock.
I have the right side fitted and are getting the left side fitted in a couple of weeks on a 78series troopie,its not to much of a drama(still hard to lock) with myself, but my bride cant lock it.

I have bent the tongue on the lock out a little, but if i go any more, there is to much slop in it when it is closed.

Yes they are a bit hard to lock we (myself and the wife) use our foot to push them shut, pretty easy after a while.

Regards

Hi lost

We have 2 on the Oodnadatta ambulance. One is easy to lock, the other needs a hefty dose of Blundstone to get it locked. The easy one never comes undone, so it's not necessary to have them so hard to lock. If we were closer to the retailer, we'd get it changed.

Cheers
John

I keep mine well supplied with WD40 and locking and unlocking is never difficult.

Yup!

WD40 or in my case I use a lanolin based spray and all is just fine.

Hey yeah the guys are right. Mine has been an effort for months. Just went out and gave it a belt with a teflon spray....very easy now.

I use a No 12 boot like everyone else here to lock them down.

You could change the little rubber blocks that the arm rest against, Change them for softer rubber as thats what you are tensioning the arm against. (Its located in the "U" shaped guide mount)

Just remember that the easier you make it the more chance of it rattling and vibrating.

I have the opposite lock one, and theres 2 bolts in elongated holes to hold on the handles and latch assembly... is there anything like this on the kaymars? When I first assembled the OL one for installation it was tight, but loosen off the 2 handle bolts and bash it around a bit and its pretty easy now.
