Madera, CA – U.S. Rack offers the pickup owner with a topper a no-drill alternative in truck- bed rack systems. The re-designed Canopy Rack is designed for carrying up to 250 lbs of cargo on truck toppers. This universal rack will fit any canopy with a generally flat roof which is at least 52 inches long. Its mounting feet are adjustable so it will fit toppers of any width. Sturdy side rails contain cargo, and metal loops integrated into the rails make tying cargo down easy.
Some drilling is required to install the mounting feet, but the rack frame may be mounted or removed as one piece in less than 5 minutes. Rubbery gasket pads under the mounting feet resist water leakage into the canopy. Maximum load capacity is limited to the strength of topper or to a maximum distributed load of 250 pounds, whichever is less.
Made of black semi-gloss powder-coated steel and weighing only 35 lbs, the canopy rack adjusts to fit any size topper and installs or un-installs quickly by disconnecting the body of the rack from the low profile mounting feet which remain bolted to the topper until needed
“Our Canopy Rack offers the pickup truck owner a great value in a durable, versatile, cargo rack for the topper”, said Chris Green, owner of U.S. Rack. “It’s perfect for the pickup owner, who needs a great all-purpose, particularly if he wants to be able to remove the rack and store it when it’s not needed”.
The Canopy Rack is very affordable and is warranted for a period of one year against all structural defects in materials and workmanship when assembled and 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.
