    1up security bolt alternative

    Hey everyone,

    So i decided to look at alternatives for the security bolt for the 1up bike rack as I didn't like the idea of having to keep the key around. See below, I took a yakima sparetime knob that come standard with a 12mm bolt and replaced it with a 1/2" bolt and grinded it down slightly to fit inside the mechanism. Let me know what you think.

    not sure i understand... are you saying you replaced the the 1Up bolt that tightens the expander ball with your custom Yakima piece?
    unfamiliar with how that knob works, but you're still carrying around a key...
