Campfire Safety

HITCHWEB SUMMER TIP: CAMPFIRE SAFETY

As you probably heard, British Columbia has declared a state of emergency to support the Province wide response to the ongoing wildfire situation. Before starting that #adventureonwheels and setting up camp and a campfire, here's a few steps to consider to camp smart and safe. 

Step 1: Check if there is a fire ban in effect in the area by visiting the Province's Wildfire Service's Page

Step 2: If campfires are permitted, use approved fire rings or pits to build your fire. Clear a 4 foot radius around the fire area and at least 15 feet away from tent walls, hanging branches and vegetation.

Step 3: The best way to extinguish a fire is to let the wood burn completely to ash. If time does not allow that, completely extinguish the fire using water.

Installing and Using Rhino Rack Folding Kayak Carriers

Installing the Rhino Rack Folding J Kayak Carrier on Vortex Crossbars

Loading your Rhino Rack Folding J Kayak carrier is about as easy as it gets.

  • Fit the bracket under the bar and tighten the screws - you don't want to over tighten them.
  • Rotate the arms up and lock it in position by pulling the large tab out and locking it back in.
  • If you have the additional extension do the same on the other side, so they are mirrored.
  • To load your kayak lift it into place, do not drag it.
  • Secure your kayak by looping the straps on the arm of the kayak carrier and around the kayak, securing it on your cross bar on both sides.
  • Use the longer tiedowns to secure the front and rear of your kayaks to your vehicle for extra security.

Now you're ready to take your Kayak's anywhere!

Installing the Rhino Rack Batwing Awning On A Landcruiser With The Pioneer Rack 

First Step: Take out all pieces and make sure you have 

Attach rear mounting point on the drivers side by sliding it into the channel on the pioneer rack and tightening it with the allen key provided. 
Next we slide the bracket assemblies into the slots on the awning itself, noting the height we wanted to attach the brackes as you have two options. 
Leaving the bolts loose so we can adjust them on the pioneer tray, we place the awning on the tray and attach it with the m6 nuts and bolts in the pioneer channel using the horizontal bolt holes.

We found that sliding the plate nut under the bracket and screwing the bolts until it catches worked great just...

Installing A Rhino Rack Roof Rack On A 2011 Acura RDX With Factory Rails

 

First Step: Open the boxes and make sure you have everything you need:

Remove the end caps from your crossbars and shake them up and down to remove the measurement strips, vortex rubber strip and the key. Insert the vortex rubber strips in the C channel on the top of the crossbars and cut the extra bit off if required. 
We discovered we like this back and forth motion to get them in just right. 
Then insert the legs into the crossbar by squeezing the tabs. 
Get your crossbars and sit them on the 2011 Acura MDX's factory rails so that the leg assembly...
