Strength Testing Time
We have had a number of people asking why our carriers priced as they are when they can buy a cheap Chinese made bag down the road that they think will do the same job. We always tell them “you get what you pay for” and our carriers are made to last. We show them the materials we use and tell them they can safely carry anything they can fit into one of our carriers, but we thought it would be really good to prove it.
So, we looked around the factory and found one of our old prototype Club 500 boat carriers, one of several carriers made to try out different ideas in carrier design and is similar to our production carriers except for a few minor differences in the construction -
The materials used are the same type as the production carriers, but the carrier was made with an end of roll piece of material where the dying had ended -
At the test facility the carrier was loaded up with steel bars in a series of steps, but the testers eventually had to stop at 350Kg (that’s one third of a ton!!) because they couldn’t get any more steel bar weights into the carrier! So we still don’t know the breaking point of the carrier, but you can rest assured that it will carry anything you can get into it (including that full size Harley-
The testers gave us a certificate to confirm the performance and commented that they could not find any visible damage to the carrier – they also said they couldn’t believe the strength of our carriers!
Incidentally, I bought one of the cheap Chinese made bags -
