Re: Transporting counterweights- best method?

Don Anderson

Hi Chris
For a truck or trunk of a car that is true. I have an SUV which I put down the two backseats to form a deck to transport everything. There really isn't anything to hold things from sliding back and forth between the back of the front seats and the tailgate. Scope (in carrying case) and other equipment including lap top all share the same flat surface.

Right, but I don't keep people and scopes on my rear floorboard - which
is where I put the cw's. Of course, scopes and mounts get wrapped and
packed properly. In 8+ years of toting these things around, I've yet to
have a scope fall onto the floorboard and hit one of my cw's, and a cw
has never rolled up off my floorboard and hit a scope or person. I don't
think they ever will, unless the truck flips - in which case I don't
care about the cw's. :)

cheers & beers,

No I don't worship them either but Counter Wts & Dec shafts tend to be
heavy and if not properly secured during transport tend to roll around
and may damage something I do value highly such as other telescope
equipment the interior of my vehicle or the people inside.
