Review of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack Eye Bolt Kit


Hey Guys, is Collin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a quick look at the eye bolt kit for the pioneer platform rack from Rhino-Rack. This eye bolt kit is going to mount in the t-track of your pioneer platform and provide you with a tied on point to secure your cargo. It has a very thick galvanized steel construction so it's going to be very durable and it's going to hold up great to rust and corrosion. Now with our eye bolt kit, we are using the Rhino-Rack cam buckle straps, which are available here at etrailer, either separately or as a kit with the eye bolt.Now you don't have to necessarily use these straps if you have your own those will work as well. Now in your kit you are going to get four eye bolts.

We have two of them right here and these are going to be very versatile. You can adjust them wherever on the platform rack that is going to best be able to secure your cargo. Now I'll just show you how it works real quick. We'll just loosen it like so, and again slide it in the track. If we need to adjust it between the slots, we'll just pull it all the way back.

Bring it outside of the track, just place it in the next one over, slide it wherever we need it.You're going to get all the hardware included with your kit. We're going to have some washers in the front and we do have the plate with the threads inside. That's going to help secure it to the platform rack. Now the order you go is the small lock washer and we'll go the big flat washer and the smaller flat washer. Now we'll just thread on that plate just slightly.

Now we can set it into the track and slide it over. When you're tightening it down, all you gotta do is go by hand all the way. Get it as tight as you can with your hands.If you aren't comfortable with how tight you get it with your hands, you can just grab a screwdriver, anything like that. You just apply it in there from more leverage. Just give it a quarter turn and that's going to be secure.

Now while these are going to make great and sturdy tied on points, they aren't going to be permanent. So if you do need to remove them because you either need the flat surface of your pioneer rack or if you just want to remove them when it's not in use, you can do that very easily. Just take them out of the track and stow them in your vehicle. Well, thank you all for watching. That's going to do for our look at the eye bolt kit for the Rhino-Rack pioneer platform rack.
