What Risers Do I Need?

To ensure your new PRTS will work best for you, we recommend first taking some measurements of your vehicle. You can follow
along below to create a cardboard template of your rod transport system and see exactly how your system will fit on your vehicle.
This cardboard template will be a representation of the profile view of the reel housing box and will help determine the proper
mounting position and if any risers may be needed for your setup. Risers allow for a larger gap between the roof of your vehicle
and your Rod Transport System. This helps create additional space for your vehicle hatch to open. To determine what riser may be
needed, you can follow along below to create a cardboard template of the PEAK Rod Transport System and see exactly how your
system will fit on your vehicle.

To create a mock-up template, you will need two materials. First, a cardboard rectangle at least 13 9/16 ” wide by 7 9/16” tall.
Next, a 2×4 or other similar piece of material; this will lay across your vehicle rail to determine height and does not need to be the
actual length of the PRTS.

Start by cutting the cardboard out per the diagram below. Measure then place marks at each of the six corners indicated by the
black dots. Connect the dots to make a template of the Reel Housing Box. The 2×4 or other material can be attached with staples,
nails, tape or anything else. Simply make sure the bottom edge lines up with the corner of the Reel Housing Box template, as
indicated in blue below.

Your PRTS 2F or 4F Template is complete. To test the fit on your vehicle, place the 2×4 or other material to the top of your vehicles
mounting system. If installing on a vehicle with a back hatch, ensure that your Rod Transport unit will not interfere with the rear
door. Open your vehicle hatch and place your cardboard template in desired location. Consider the height of your vehicle and how
far you will have to reach to access your rods. If you find that you have to mount the housing box too far forward for your taste,
PEAK offers a variety of risers. Risers are available in half inch increment sizes from 0.5” up to 4”. Add this height in between the
2×4 or other material on your template to gauge what riser you may need. In addition, the PRTS Quick Disconnect system adds an
additional 1” to your overall height.

Creating this template will also give you an opportunity to measure the height of your vehicle with the unit attached, which should
be considered when parking in home or public garages, or other areas with low clearances.
