Madera, CA – U.S. Rack announces the introduction of a versatile new truck rack that mounts in 5 minutes without drilling and fits trucks with standard beds as well as those with track systems including the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Dual Rack carries any cargo weighing up to 300 lbs, but it is especially suited as a kayak truck rack and a canoe truck rack, because its sturdy dual truss crossbar has a round Yakima-sized bar on one side and a rectangular Thule-size crossbar on the other. Flipping the crossbar around allows any common brand of kayak and canoe accessories to mount directly to the rack.
The Dual Rack is made of sturdy powder-coated tubular steel and consists of two sections. The front section can be mounted just behind the cab and used alone as a headache rack or used in conjunction with a second section. The second section can be mounted at the tailgate or moved forward and fixed anywhere along the bedrail. Eyelets and inboard rope cleats allow cargo to be tied down at as many as 12 points, and rubbery pads on contact surfaces help protect truck surfaces from wear.
“Our Dual Rack has gotten an especially strong response from truck owners with kayaks and canoes, because it’s so quick and easy to install and works with common accessories. This is the type of rack that Toyota and Nissan customers especially have been looking for”, said Chris Green, CEO of U.S. Rack. “One that is compatible in style and function with the new generation of trucks with accessory track systems”.
The Dual Rack is exceptionally affordable for the complete two-section rack system. U.S. Rack products are warranted for a period of one year against all structural defects in materials and workmanship when installed properly
U.S. RACK, INC., MANUFACTURER OF QUALITY TRUCK RACKS
U.S. Rack manufactures the largest variety of distinct pickup truck rack designs anywhere and leads the market with quality, innovative, multi-functional pickup racks that install quickly with NO DRILLING.
U.S. Rack began, as so many businesses have, in a garage in the Silicon Valley. After taking a large welded rack off his pickup, Chris Green had two problems: (1) a sore back and (2) no place to store the bulky rack. He exclaimed to his wife, Stephanie, “There ought to be a rack that clamps onto a truck and stores easily when you don’t need it.” Out of that insight grew the U.S. Rack business.
Determined to make sure that his designs were sturdy and safe, Chris initially worked with a university engineering department and later with an independent engineering lab to load-test components and products. In 2000, he set up a small shop to manufacture the first production racks and in 2003 built the larger Madera, CA manufacturing plant.
U.S. Rack is still a small business, now located in Southern California and part of the T-REX Truck Product family, manufacturing the largest variety of distinct pickup truck rack designs anywhere and leads the market with AMERICAN MADE quality, innovative, multi-functional pickup racks that install quickly with NO DRILLING.
