Hello. The unit fits great. I installed it on the front hitch mount of my 2000 GMC K3500. I’m using it with the Craftsman 2500 generator using the top slot. The unit allows me to permanently install the generator out front and keep it secure. I have a campsite truck camper that does not have an onboard generator. The TorkLift lock and load was a great solution. I added a set of turnbuckles for a nice snug fit while traveling down the road.


The product came in a timely manner and everything went together perfectly. I’m using the tray to carry a Champion 2000 dual fuel inverter generator (see picture) and also purchased the Yakima swing hitch to incorporate in the set up. The generator is being used to power a portable 200 square foot Hisense A/C. I ran the truck down the highway and everything is solid. The only complaint I have is that there was a minor 1” mar inside the tray probably caused by other parts rubbing against the tray during shipping but wasn’t that big a deal to knock the rating down to 4 stars.


The Torklift fits the Honda EU 2000i perfectly and is great to be on the outside of my Class B van and avoid any gas fumes inside the cabin. Packaging was not as good as a good as ot should have been, however, the packaging areived in good condition. There was some of the fonish and a large corner scrape on the Torklift frane (heaviest part) and my guess was it was dmaged before packaging. Instead of returning it, I touched ip the finish to avoid andy rist issues down the road, but I would expect better handling and damage control from the seller, otherwise I would give the item 5 stars.


A few suggestions for TL:
Some of the
parts appear to be useful only when using the Sidekick with a Spacedock on a Palomino truck camper bumper. It's a waste to include them for those of us with different applications.
The ability to mount the license plate bracket included with the Ecohitch front hitch would be nice.
A visual indicator such as the one included on the larger Lock and Load would be nice in order to avoid collisions.
A way to keep the adjustable strap from dropping to the ground when removing the top bar would be also be nice.
The rattle from the lock is horrible with the generator running in place. The Etrailer trick helps, but TL should do something about this. If you unlock the unit to avoid the rattle and make refueling easier, the generator can walk around until the exhaust begins burning the paint on the fixed strap. I may be fashioning a way to corral the generator feet to avoid this.


It’s solidly built and very easy to assemble. However, the tray is too large for this generator. With the generator mounted there is 4” inches of space in front of and in back of it. They provide security bolts on the tray, but the generator doesn’t even cover them. Unscrew 4 nuts and bolts, and you can steal the generator. I’m chaining mine to the bumper. I have no doubt it will hold the generator securely on the road; but the tray is so oversized that if you grab the generator by the bottom and pull it towards you, it will come out if you pull hard enough. It would damage the generator; but what thief cares about a little damage? It seems like Torklift tried to make this carrier a “one size fits many”. For security purposes it needs to be resized to footprint of the generator


As described. Ordered the lock and load side kick, as we had no place to safely carry our honda generator in our Truck camper. The "Lock and Load Side Kick" solved that problem. It is sturdy, holds generator tightly and will not vibrate around. Sturdy heavy duty lock prevents theft. Good quality, solid construction. We mounted a reciever under the bumper of our truck camper, now we can take the generator only when we need to and remove the carrier when not in use.


I didn’t do my homework. My 2200ie did not fit; it was a little too tall and barely fit length wise. A slight modification to the top bar allowed it to fit so it worked out. Shipping was super fast. The nuts/bolts/washers were just free floating in the box but they were all there.


great product. Preparing a vintage camper for a lady to travel all across the country and this is exactly what we needed for both security and convenience for her! Thanks


Excellent online store. Searched several online sites for the product I wanted and only found it at Etrailer. Excellent quality but a little pricey.


I received the sidekick and was extremely satisfied with the product. Assembly instructions were easy to follow and were comprehensive.


Great product. Instructions were helpful and product is bomber! Perfect fit.



Perfect - one of my better purchases!

Excellent service and quality products.


everything is great except the lock rattles, a foam stuffing is required.

  • Can the TorkLift Lock and Load Sidekick Cargo Tray Be Used on a Front Mounted Hitch
    You could use the 16x21 TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray for 2" Hitches - 200 lbs # TLA7901 on a front mounted hitch, but it should be done with caution as large items like generators can obstruct the airflow to the engine bay. We haven't seen this issue pop up specifically when using this cargo tray, but it is something that should be paid attention to when you're using it in this manner.

  • Yamaha Generators That Fit TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray
    The Yamaha 2200iS generator is too long to fit into the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray # TLA7901. It is nearly 22 inches in length, which is longer than the 21-1/4 length of the inside of the SideKick tray. The Yamaha generators that will fit this tray are the Yamaha EF2400iSHC and Yamaha EF2000iS generators. I have added links below to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like of the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray # TLA7901.

  • Which Generators will the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray Carry
    The TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray, part # TLA7901, can carry any generator that fits on it. The generator needs to have a center handle and be no more than 16 inches wide and 21-1/4 inches long. For the height there are three different settings; 16-1/2, 17-1/4, and 18-1/2 inches. The carrier is specifically designed to hold the Yamaha 2400 Series and the Honda 2000 Series. However, with the Honda the outlets are on the ends so they're blocked by the brackets when the generator...

  • Will TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick # TLA7901 Restrict Air Flow if Used on Front of 2017 Ford F-350
    Any time you carry items in the front of a vehicle there is always the chance that it can restrict air flow and cause the vehicle to run hot. With that said I have not heard of someone having that exact issue while using the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick # TLA7901. But that possibility does exist.

  • Will the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Fit a Generac IQ2000 Generator
    The internal dimensions of the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick part # TLA7901 are as follows: 21" long x 16" wide x 18-1/2" tall. You will need to measure your Generac IQ2000 and compare it to the above in order to determine if this tray will work for you. This generator has not yet been tested with this tray so measuring will be the only way to determine fit. I have attached a review video for you as well. If it does fit then please let us know so we can update the information to reflect this.

  • Will a Honda 2000 Generator Fit the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick # TLA7901
    If your generator is the Honda Eu2000ia then it will fit the TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick # TLA7901 for sure. Otherwise you have to go by the dimensions of the carrier. The tray is 21-1/4" long x 16-1/8" wide. As for the strap adjustments measured from tray base to inside of top locking bar the minimum height is 16-1/2 inches and the max is 18-1/2 inches. The use of a 4 inch drop adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. So that means that the combined weight of the...

  • Could 16x21 TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray Be Disassembled To Steal
    That's a good question. The reality is if someone had access to the top and bottom of the bolts that hold the tray to the shaft of the 16x21 TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray # TLA7901 they could remove the bolts. But that would require the thief to have the tools needed on-hand, have a pretty solid understanding of this specific carrier, and you to have a small enough generator that they would be able access the tops of the bolts. The likelihood of all of that criteria being...

Since your Predator 3500 generator measures 22-3/4" long and 17-1/3" wide, it will not fit.

  • Locking Generator Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Hitch at Rear of Trailer

  • What Front Hitch and Generator Tray Do You Recommend for My 2021 Ford F-350?
    Yes! If the front-mounted hitch/accessory is mounted properly, it is totally legal to do.

Not only does this hitch provide you with 500 pounds of tongue weight and 9,000 pounds of line pull capacity, it also installs close to the front bumper to decrease the probability of bumper clearance issues.

Depending on the hitch, some are weld-optional, others are weld-on only. I recommend using Curt's RV and Camper Class III Hitch, part # 13703 if your manufacturer deems your RV hitch capable.
