Today we are going to review part number 59797. This is the Rola Truck Bed Ladder Rack Conduit Carrier. This kit let you create a conduit carrier for your ladder rack. That way you can securely carry your loose rods, pipes and conduit inside of the carrier. The end half of this system is going to be made from a lightweight aluminum construction, so they are going to last a very long time. They also have a really nice powder finish that is designed to resist scratches, rust and corrosion. You also going to have this spring tension latch here, and that tension, I have loosened it up a quite bit, but it can be adjusted. There is just a nut here on the back side that you can tighten or loosen do decrease or increase the amount of tension.
All you got to do is swivel that. It does go 360 degrees, so you can go to either side. That is going to allow to open up the lid of the cap here. Now, on this bottom side. That is going to have a nice gasket. That is going to create a nice weather tight seal, making sure the contents inside of our container stay nice and dry. This area over here is designed to receive a lock that has a shackle diameter of up to half an inch.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when choosing your PVC pipe. Inner diameter needs to be about 6 inches. Outer diameter cannot exceed more that 6 and 3/4 of an inch. For our pipe today, we are working with one that has an outer diameter that has about six and 5/8. These will be schedule 40 or 80, and the length doesn't really matter, as long as your ladder rack can accommodate the conduit carrier. Today we are working with about 10 feet, but we can easily skewed in our rails here, to accommodate a shorted length of needed. The universal design allows the system to mount with truck racks with up to a 3and 1/2 inch load bar width.
Stainless steel saddle brackets and hardware included from the mounted carrier to the load bars. This is a no drill installation, when it comes to the load bar system. The only drilling required, is at the end of your conduit carrier with the aluminum end caps. Now that we have gone over some features. We are going to go ahead and show you how to install this onto your ladder rack system. The fist thing that we need to do, according to the instructions, is to take our end cap here.
You are going to get two caps. One is going to have a door, one of them is just going to be a cap. We are going to place this onto the end of our PVC tubing. The PVC tubing is not included. You will have to purchase that separately. Once you have this on there. They are going to include some self tapping screws, so we are simply going to use those to secure this on the end of our tube. The cap already has pre drilled holes in it, so we are using those as our screw holes, and we are simply just using four self tapping screws to get this secured on the end of our tubing. With the end cap on our PVC tube, we simply go and place our tube in. Which is going to act as our conduit carrier. We'll place that directly onto our ladder rack system. Now we are going to use the included U bolt and secure that onto our rack. We are going to take two of our U bolts. It is going to come with a total of four. We are going to place this around our conduit holder. Just like so. Then what we can do is bring our brackets from the under side and install our hardware. All the hardware is included. We will go ahead and thread on our lock nuts. Going to get them as far as we can by hand. We are going to tighten them down using our 9 and 1/16 inch socket. Just try to make sure you have it evenly tight on both sides. You can tell that just by how many threads you have left exposed. All right. With this end tight, we will repeat that process for the end closed to the cab of our pick up. You can see here that the U bolts really do
