It's fast and easy to secure an RC airplane using Random RC Gear Jacks. But you can make it even faster and easier when you mount your Gear Jacks on Gladiator® Gear Track and use our Sliding Retainer Kit. The idea is simple. The skate wheels in the Kit engage the beveled edges of the Gladiator Track and hold the Track down to a trailer floor, shelf, or platform. This lets you secure the airplane while it's
outside of the vehicle then slide the secured model — Gladiator Track, Gear Jacks, and all—into position. Just insert and tighten the included Thumbscrew and you're done.Being able to secure the model before you load it means you can position the model for transport in places that would be difficult or even impossible to access, like a trailer shelf or under a pickup cover. And because you secured the model to your Gear Jacks while it was outside of the vehicle and easy to access, you'll be confident it's ready to travel.Have a look at the Instruction Sheet excerpt below and you'll see just how simple it is to set up and install.
We wanted to upgrade an existing Gear Jacks installation to make loading and unloading even easier. The whole idea is to allow you to secure the model to the Gear Jacks when it's outside the vehicle. That way you can just slide it into the vehicle and you're ready to go—no crawling around in tight spaces.
The video runs 22 minutes. That's longer than it would take most people to install the kit!
