This is a rack designed to allow a firm and durable platform for loads and have the ability to adjust in width when required. It has been designed to be as strong and durable as possible, with no consideration of saving money in it`s construction and design. This has not been made as cheaply as possible, is as usual most likely over-engineered and has been built to last.
Onto the 6mm aluminium black powder coated adaptor plate fits the adjustable rack which is made from 2mm thick stainless steel. It bolts on using 4 x M8 bolts and 4 x M8 Nyloc nuts. These fasteners can be used to hold it in the desired width. I`ll also supply 4 x M8 wing nuts and spring washers for ease of adjustment but I would only use those if they were constantly monitored as they can easily be removed. The whole rack is held onto the BMW OEM rack by 4 tube clamps to which the adaptor plate attaches by 4 high quality M10 stainless fasteners.
The rack, in its closed position, is 430mm wide and when fully open it reaches 630mm wide. This width is still safely within the span of the mirrors. The rack is 270mm deep. The main image shows it in the fully open position.
It can be used to support wide loads which need extra support or when closed simply as a good rack to put things on. The adaptor plate can be used by itself as a larger alternative to the OEM rack.
Comes with all fasteners and fitting instructions.

This is a well conceived, professionally engineered product. The rack is solid and robust and the high quality fasteners supplied for mounting it also reflect Cymarc's attention to detail.
It is not a cheap piece of kit but the quality and versatility is obvious compared to other racks.
