Thanks - are the "speed clips" part of the bracket support? Or a separate item? I couldn't tell from the photos. My brackets are the ones that came with the wire shelves. The shelves snap into the brackets very tightly - it actually takes a pretty hard push to get them back out.
They're built into it...it's a plastic piece that pushes back and covers the wire in the back...looks like the same as what you have, but a different design...I only know because I just put a closet system in the babies room, lol
I usually just remove the rails, since they connect with just a single nut each. But yesterday I had to breakdown camp in the rain, so I got lazy and drove home three hours with the rails on. I may just leave them on, since they blend into the ladder. During the weekend, I also learned that the wire shelves are GREAT for hanging just about anything and keeping items handy. Of all the systems and features I have designed for my Jeep, I think this one might be the best so far!
Good question - the beautiful thing about this design is that the rails are NOT secured at the bottom. There is a small rubber bumper that braces the rail against the side of the Jeep. Even when driving on rough trails, the rails stay firm against the side of the Jeep and do not swing or slide. The tension on the nut at the top of the rail where it is mounted into the canopy channel also helps. When at camp, the shelves snap in tightly and hold the rails very rigid. In fact, when this shelving system is installed in a closet, the rails simply hang down and are not secured at the bottom.
I spoke with Rhino about this invention, since it is such a perfect upgrade to their side-mounted canopy. The shelves pack completely flat (I just shove them in the 2-inch space between my fridge and the sidewall of the cargo area. Having the extra shelf space is REALLY nice at camp.
