How do I mount a Bat, Manta or Swift to my Thule or Yakima bars?
There is only one Yakima or Thule style mount that we have found that actually is robust enough to manage the torque created by the awning rafter arms while deploying. Understand you have roughly 40 lbs (20 lbs for the Swift) of material and rafter arm swinging in a 7' arc from your vehicle. You need to handle this correctly, or damage to your rack, awning or vehicle is possible. Please look at the Awn Lock by Bomber Products, listed under Awnings/Accessories and Parts.
