Please forgive me if this sounds stupid but here goes .... I have just purchased a rubbish/ storage bag to put on the spare on my NP Pajero - the strap configuration looks similar to what you'd get on a backpack. Was wondering how people attach theirs - do you put the bag on with a strap down each side like a backpack or do you cross them over??

TG,

Not stupid at all. Cross them over the back of the tyre making sure that the webbing is securely lodged in the tread of the tyre. If you have a tyre cover on, the bag will still downwards in the rough stuff. I've always found a great idea is to cut yourself a bit of plywood matching the dimensions as the bottom of the bag. Make sure you smooth the edges and run a bit of Gaffer tape around the edges (saves wear). Pop this in the bottom of the bag and it will maintain its shape a lot better and stop anything heavy wearing through the bottom of the bag.

Cheers Mick

Used mine for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Worked really well. The only thing I did wrong was use the 54 litre bag. I should have used the wheelie bin bag but that was my fault. Otherwise it was great not having to worry about where to put rubbish and also where to carry it home. Also pleased that I bought the bigger one.

Very impressed!!

Are they legal to have hanging off the back of a vehicle ? (That is used on a road - public).
