Introduction: Bike Holder Inside of Car Trunk

Picture of Bike Holder Inside of Car Trunk

I will present you my prototype of bike holder inside of trunk.

Why inside?
Because;

- it is a lot more cheaper than any other holders outside the car

- it is not problem if I forgot that i have something on roof:)

- i don’t like holders they are based on rear window

- i don’t have towbar

What are my requirements;

- still have one place on rear seats

- still have some place for luggage in trunk

- it easy to use

Step 1:

Draw some templates.

Step 3: Paper Template

Print model on few A4 papers. Make some corrections in GS and print it again and redraw it on plywood.

Step 4: Make It Real

Saw it with jigsaw.

Holder put in car on to position and sign where would be holes for screws which will press together sides and tire.

Note;

Put some non-slip rubber bellow holder on seat.

Step 5: Screws
