**Ranked #1 in wiki 2017 Best Surfboard Car Racks category**
NOTHING HOLDS BOARDS TO CAR BETTER THAN LOCKDOWN!
PROTECTION: 1″ (25mm) foam padding provides protective insulation between surfboards and vehicle roof. Softrack interior is lined with soft neoprene cushioning for max surfboard protection.
SURFBOARD RAIL PROTECTION: When transporting up to 3 shortboards (or 1 longboard), the 1″ foam padding reaches around surfboard rails – eliminating contact between strap and surfboard rail, a revolutionary way of reducing rail damage.
COMPATIBILITY: Lockdown Racks are compatible with bare roofed vehicles (ie nothing at all on the roof) that have either 4 opening doors, or a combination of front doors and two rear opening windows. Also compatible with roofed vehicles fitted with 2x roof rails which run parallel to side of car. Roof rails do NOT need cross bars.
CONSTRUCTION: each 1″ webbing strap is secured by a super strong zinc cast cambuckle (plastic coated) for ultimate tension and safety.
USEABILITY: Lockdown Racks are configured differently than standard soft racks, so first installation may take extra time until familiar. For this reason we recommend you have prior experience of using soft racks. Once familiar, the racks are simple to use with a single tightening point per rack
CAPACITY: 1-4 short surfboards or 1-3 longboards.*see our listing for specialized Lockdown SUP racks with rail protection (search ASIN: B00TDNQYOG). Please note: all softracks can make a humming noise due to windage when driving, however this can be simply alleviated by adding a twist or two to each strap.
**Choose the Best for your Boards and choose LOCKDOWN.** Keep the stoke!!
- patented Curve ‘lockdown’ system uses a revolutionary single loop to ‘cocoon’ around surfboards and secure to your vehicles roof. This eliminates usual problems of surfboard lift, slide and flutter, even in conditions such as windblasts from oncoming trucks.
- 1″ foam padding provides cushioning between surfboards and vehicle roof, with a soft inner neoprene lining for maximum surfboard protection
- 1″ foam extends to cocoon around surfboard rails and prevent strap on rail damage
- 2 connection options – either thru doors or via roof rails
- nothing holds boards to car better than Lockdown!

on of the driver wheel.At the same time the fulcrum, which is suspended fromthe bell-hanger lever, works on a second fulcrum on theelbow lever and forces the small shoe against the ponywheel. In this position 33 per cent of the braking weightis on the ponies. Variation in the position of the fulcrumsuspended from the bell-hanger lever will change theratio of braking weight. The bell-crank lever acts alsoas a brake-shoe hanger or support. A 93/2-in. hanger sup-ports the shoe and head of the driver wheel. AN INNOVATION IN CAR WINDOW FIXTURES An interesting combination of side weather-stripping,dust deflectors, sash balance and sash-locking means forcar windows is manufactured by the Grip Nut Company,of Chicago. From the illustrations and description it willbe noted that one of the essential features is the ingeniousarrangement of inside and outside flexible weather strips.The inside window stops and finish are placed away fromthe sash and the sash is fitted loosely, thus allowing clear-

The necessary open-ing around the loosely fitted sash is made air-tight anddustproof by the weather strips forming a flexible joint.The strips also cushion the sash broadside against the out-side stops and centralize the sash between the two windowjambs. It is stated that in this way friction is reduced to aminimum, an easily operated sash is provided and all rattleis eliminated. The gravity wedging lock is a device to prevent rattlingand to keep the sash from falling. The lock bolt is beveled45 deg. and settles into a corresponding downward and out-ward beveled rack. A gradual wedging of the sash againstthe stops in its downward movement effects a progressive stop, preventing the usual sudden jar which loosens thescrews and fixtures, breaks glass, etc. The sash is securelylocked against the outside stop. Various designs of racks are made, some of which areshown in one of the illustrations. The pressed r
