    A simple bent pipe (10mm) hinged on the leg fame. Lift it up and a piece of rope that hooks to the edge of the table. Mine then supports a basin and drying rack. The other sides are supporte on the edge of the table. Super simple, space efficient and practical.

    My friend had a normal plastick garden table with removable round legs for packing up when travelling. He cut out holes in it to drop in wash basins and dish stands. Simple but ingenious sadly I cant upload pics of it.

    I used them often to hold a rooster



    I was walking around the stock yard and saw a 210L drum lid. One of those that is secured with a latch ring.

    First try at home





    The tripod looks a bit shaky and I don't want the meat in sand. Mommy does not like.

    Another light came on and another lid was sourced. Plasmacut a center piece and the mesh welded in.

    Now the final product tested this past weekend at Marakele.







    Put together for storage or transport the assembly is not more than 40mm high.

    Now we can have our braai anywhere without damage to the environment, especially in KNP where local units are always where you don't want it.

    Johan, outstanding! For the plough discs, our local scrapmetal-yard in Middelburg, has lots occasionally with our farming community around town. cost -Rand per kilogram... or you can buy new at NEW prices at the farmer co-ops.

    In my Tiguan I had a lot of space next to my spare wheel, under the boot floor for big compressor, jumper leads, toolbag, towrope, puncture repair, scissor jack, blocks of wood, pair of overalls, small groundsheet, etc. This stuff just lived in the car. Now I have a 2016 Fortuner and there is nowhere to leave all this stuff out of sight permanently. So I am experimenting with this permanent box:

    In contrast to the Tiguan, I will be able to access everything without unloading the whole boot - just tip the second row of seats forward.

    Daar is seker al baie geskryf en geredeneer wat is die beste manier om jou voertuig se agterruit en verfwerk te beskerm wanneer 'n waentjie of woonwa agter 'n voertuig op 'n grondpad gesleep word.Ek het eenmaal 'n dure les geleer met 'n waentjie wat ek gesleep het op 'n kort stukkie grondpad,toe my Prado se agterruit uitgegooi is met 'n klip wat vanaf die waentjie teruggespat het op die agterruit....R8800 later weer herstel.
    Baie kampers sit ekstra lang modderflappe aan en ander span weer 'n seil op die disselboom van die wa ens ens.Dit werk met rekke om dit natuurlik in plek te hou en die rek help ook om die seil styf te hou om draaie ens,maar my ondervinding is dat daar maar nog steeds somtyds klippe vanaf die modderskerms terugspat op die voertuig.Die kontrepsie gaan partymaal los en dien nie die doel nie,want die bestuurder let dit partymaal eers te laat op.Dan het klippies klaar die verfwerk beskadig.
    Nou my vraag,kan mens nie 'n seil prakseer wat oor die agterkant van jou voertuig gespan kan word,so 100mm vanaf die bakwerk,wat sal help om die hele agterkant van jou voertuig te beskerm nie,ook die verfwerk.Dit kan dan die klippies wagkaats van die voertuig se agterkant.
    Ek wil so-iets prakseer,maar weet nie so lekker hoe en waar dit natuurlik op jou voertuig se hoeke aan bokant en onderkant moet vaskom,en ook nie hÚe nie.Op die Prado sal die spaarwiel natuurlik help om die seil weg te hou vanaf die agterruit en bakwerk.
    Kom ons gesels hieroor,miskien kan ons mekaar van raad voorsien asseblief.

    Nog nooit iets gesien wat lekker werk nie
    Oorweeg dalk sagte rubber of stywe spons onder die seil van sÍ 10mm dik (Stel voor SPX40) Dan kan jy die lap direk op die deur vastrek met straps. Ky moet dan net die impak spoed van die klippie breek en die sal dan nie skade maak nie.
    Die ander opsie is om skuins seiltjie van die disselboom se buite kante te span na die bokante van die treiler. Die klippe onder deur is dan skadeloos en die klippe hoŽr vang dan 'n skuins vlak wat die klip bo-oor die treiler gooi. Die relatiewe beweging van die seil sal ook die klippie se spoed absorbeer.
    Jy kan my kontak as die beginsel of die uitvoerbaarheid pla.
    Gee asb terugvoer as dit werk, daar is baie van ons met dieselfde probleem.

    Die bush Lapa manne het met agter flappe in kombinasie met 'n skadunet tussen die voertuig en sleepwa 'n baie goeie werkbare plan prakseer, ek kry net nie nou die "post" nie.

    Miskien kan jy bietjie loer op daai groep.

    Sometimes its all you need to get you out of trouble. You guys are welcome to copy. I made the plate the same width as the winch. The hole for the towball is slightly bigger than 50mm. If i remember correctly. The slot was 35 mm wide. The plate length will be determined by the length of the crank handle+ 150mm. Holes for the winch can also differ between makes.
    Pieter

    This is a very nice idea I hope you don't mind if I copy it. I usually get by with just my high lift jack and a spade but this is super cool - Thanks man.

    Smile LiFePO4 Battery Box

    Yes I know there are many of these posted already but this is my version and it works very well for me. Don't ask why all the goodies inside, each one is there for a reason for me, it is posible to do this much more simple. Also, not everyone has a electrical background so I can probably help with some advice.

    Happy camping!
