Default Who sells removable ends for roll bar/ rollcage

I dunno if this should be poster here or the interior section

But Im looking for removable kit, for my rollbar, the driver and passenger side bar as well as the seatbelt harness bar, id like to have removable, so who sells a kit for this? I already have the hoop and rear bars of my rollcage welded in, I havent done my fronts yet, because I want to have them removable...

If these dont exist, then Id settle for swingouts... and who would sell swingouts? for that matter...

If you are building the cage yourself, why not just fabricate it so its removable. I dont know how tech goes about something like that. I would make square flanges for the ends of each tube where they would meet together. All you would have to do is unbolt them and take the bar out.

The shop that fabricated the cage for me, told me to look for a removable kit...

I wouldn't even know where to start to look for something like that. You will still have to weld in whatever is going to attatch it to the main hoop anyways. IMHO they arn't that good of fabricators if they need a kit to make a couple tubes removable.

You can see how LG Motorsports did my rollbar here:

http://www.akmcables.com/rollbar.htm

They capped the tubes, and they used a thick wall tube around the bolt itself (to keep the weld on tabs from 'crunching' together when everything is bolted up.

Looks pretty straightforward to me. No kit there...

excellent example of how to do it. I was thinking flanges, but this looks better.

Okay, I will present it to them...

I dont think that its (they arent good fabricators)

Because they are constantly busy with BMWs(what they specialize in) and mainly race cars..

Since I know the guy, he is probably just being lazy and trying to get a kit, vs just making it himself..(what my guess would be)

But, Let me show them those pics... It looks good...

removable would be better than swingouts, id think...

Summit machine has a relatively elegant solution, they seem to be used more for offroad fabrication though

Ahhh..

thanks guys, but they found a rollcage that a customer hasnt hasnt picked up in over a year, and theyre just gonna cut the ends off of that and weld them in the rollcage I have now and thats about it.. I will post pics when I get them.. and I will check out the 2 most recent links, when I get home from work today, in case its a better looking design..

thanks again...

Hey guys

Im done with the cage and I dont think its the best way, but here is what they did.. They used removable ends off a previous cage and elded them in my DOM tubing for the sidebars... next he welded the bottom of the door sidebarrs to a bracket and made 3 holes and made a bracket for the bottom... so the bottom is held by 3 nuts and 3 bolts, its really inconvenient to put them on, from the bottom... BUT. At last its removable.. ALSo the top that goes on the hoop, has the removable ends, as I said and that is help on by an allen bolt and nut, it has 2 flanges or whatever they would be called that the removale bar goes in between...

not the best, or most practical design, but was added free, so I cant complain..

I have pics, but cannot post them yet, because Im at work and dont have them with me...
