Wheel Mounted Cargo Plate Installation 

(See also attached drawing views)

  1. Assemble the ends onto the centre section of the Plate
  2. Feed the black 50mm wide ratchet strap through the large openings in each side piece.
  3. Place the carrier over the spare wheel so that the top is horizontal across the vehicle and the 50mm strap is central on the width of the tyre.
  4. Wrap the 50mm strap around the wheel and  fully tighten using the ratchet. 
  5. Secure the loose end of the 50mm strap.
  6. Fit the 25mm black security strap by feeding in and out through holes in the rear of the carrier.  Ensure that the strap passes through holes at both ends to provide a balanced restraint.
  7. Feed the 25mm strap through both sides of the vehicle wheel carrier in such a way as to restrain the carrier at both sides.
  8. Tighten the 25mm strap so that it is tight but not pulling on the carrier.  Secure the loose end of the strap.
  9. The tray is now ready to use.


  • The 50mm strap provides the main fixing of the carrier to the tyre and this relies on the tyre being fully inflated and maintained in that condition.
  • The 25mm strap must be fitted to restrain the carrier should the tyre unexpectedly deflate.
  • For extra stability you can fit additional straps laterally through the spare wheel if required.
  • Always check that both straps are secure and that the tyre is fully inflated before the vehicle is used and also check during intermediate stops.
  • Always secure your cargo carefully to the carrier with appropriate straps or fixings. Never use the vehicle with unrestrained cargo in the carrier.

The carrier itself is designed to take up to 30KG however, this load capacity is dependent on the mounting method of your spare wheel. Given the huge variety in cargo mounting options - you are responsible for ensuring your cargo is strapped safely to the carrier, and the carrier is attached safely to the wheel/vehicle.
