Minor snapdeck problem solved
- Over time, my snapdeck has started sliding forward (into the looser
position) until it could sometimes pop out on a bumpy road. I had
some Gorilla Tape (extra-sturdy duct tape), and ripped it into little
strips, and put them on the inside of the aluminum rails. When the
snap pieces slide behind the tape, they don't slide forward anymore,
and seem not to pop out nearly so easily.
That is all.
- You sound like a good brother, Devian.

with the clips overlapping the freeloader where it wraps around the
v-racks. No motion since and it doesn't seem to be doing the
freeloaders any harm. Your tape solution would give more flexibility
of where to stick the deck, though. Nice.
