Installing Rigid Support Struts on a Dodger
This video shows using rigid supports on a dodger. We substituted the standard flat mount plate with the Quick Release Flat Mount Plate (item #103051), so a quick release pin could be used. Now the struts can be released quickly. NOTE: Quick release hardware #103051 and #103053 is not included in this kit.
