I'm finally going to move my axe and shovel out of the back of my tacoma and onto the side of a basket on the roof. It looks like there are people using standard metal mounts to hold their axe/shovels and others using quickfist clamps.
I've got quickfists for holding flashlights and other things and am a bit worried about how sturdy they would be holding an axe if i got in a fender bender. i would hate for an axe to go flying off the truck and hurt someone. anyone have any input into axe/shovel mounting on the roof rack?
a quickfist is so easy to use it would likely be saying steal me while getting gas or parked in town is my other concern. a wingnut would take at least a little more work... or am i just being overconcerned.
anyone have any input or suggestions on good mounts?
