UniMounts for tool tubes

I'm playing around with a new mounting system for tool tubes. Some folks have concerns of the durability of the brackets, I get a number of questions of "will it fit my (fill in the blank) bike. I don't have access to a variety of bikes, so I can't honestly answer those- these were born from a MacGyver situation-
I decided to approach from the angle of; delete the molded brackets, fashion a system that allows mounting a tube to any 2 or 3 points, in line or not- durable, yet replaceable, easy to install, virtually no tools, and arrived at this-
Zip ties rated @ 175 and 250 lbs, dual swivel mounts @ 250 lbs.


zip ties used in photos are standard lightweight zips- no need to use the big boys in mock ups- save those for pulling your car out of a ditch. I also located some zip tie brackets for bolt on applications- 1/4" bolt to frame member, etc, then wrap zip around tube unit. Pricing TBD. Few parts in stock right now.
Dual Sport Tool Rolls nearly sold out, next generation being modified, at fabricators now, March release anticipated.
