Cut your all thread rod to length, or use an all thread bolt.
Use either a wing nut on one end or both, or a nut on one end or both. It's importand that which ever you do, you make sure your bike is VERY secure before going down the road.
I attached mine to the inside of my bed on the tail gate. This makes it so i can attach and release my bike without having to get up into the bed. i just lower the tail gate. Now simply remove your front wheel and secure your bike front fork to the mount.
