  • Rescue Strut Mounting Ideas ? ?

    Looking for some innovative mounting ideas for ResQJack or similar rescue struts (Horizontal or Vertical). We have two RJ3 Jack Stands and two RJ3 Adjustable Stands along with an assortment of accessories for them that we want to mount for easy access while maximizing space. Please post or email me @ [email protected] with photos.

    Here's two long and two short Junk Yard Dog struts in one compartment. The short ones are mounted on a high density polypropylene board using PacTrac brackets. The long ones are on the floor on Turtle Tiles, also using PacTrac. Be happy to take and send you more detailed photos if you need them.

    You're more than welcome to come around and see them, but it looks like we're almost as far away as you can get and still be in the Commonwealth.

      So there ARE other departments who have these struts on the trucks. I had no idea.

        We just set three on a roll out tray side by side. We found that they tend to be somewhat unwieldy, making removal from the brackets a "beeotch". I have seen some vertical mounts that were pretty nice, but not all that space conscious. Our fourth strut is with our con-space tripod head and other stuff in topside compartment. We felt that 99% of the time 3 or less struts would be adequate.

            After further searching I was able to find this photo of a vertical system which may work.

            We would be doing a stationary wall mount and should be able to attach the pegboard directly to the unistrut on the compartment walls. Has anyone done anything with this type of pegboard material ?

              CE11,

              I see now that we're not the only dept using the Holmatro secunet as you have one mounted on the door of that compartment.

                Both ambulances carry them. Since the engine has a (very basic) set of tools it also has one.

                  Not worth the time to put on. Makes as much sense as trying to contain a hand grenade with a tuppyware bowl. T.C.

                    Vertical storage of Rescue 42 struts. The other strut is behind the first. Quick Fist holders to secure them.


                    Scroll down and you will find the picture on the first page

                      Paratech struts store nicely in vertical position in spring clips (as they are round in shape).

                        we put ours on both sides of a vertivle pull out tool board, worked quite well
                        It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

                          Vertical mount for R-42's on a pull out vertical tool board worked great for us. Crimson made the brackets and pockets to put the struts in. Not a great photo but you will see them standing up on the right side of the compt.

                            Thanks for all the ideas folks. We where able to come up with a vertical design which should work out for us and we are currently awaiting parts from a local fabrication shop. Once we have everything installed I will post photos.

                              We mounted our Paratech struts vertically using Paratech clips. We originally used a PAC strap to go around both, but when hooked both struts would be pulled together and when released you needed to control both struts so one would not fall on your head.

                              The poly bin contains 2-6X6 strut bases for use on pavement, 2-"V" heads, 2-pointed heads, 4-1"X10' self contained ratchet straps, and 2-2"X30' self contained ratchet straps.

                              The opposite side of the toolboard holds 2-60" and 2-40" AMKUS rams.
