  • Tank Straps

    Has anyone put tank straps on their Ex tank? If so where did you get them and did you do anything special to install. Pics and links appreciated.

    Bill, you might have already seen it, but here is a thread with some discussion on tank straps for the RDS Ex tank.

    Hope this helps!

      We just did my install yesterday and I was concerned about the same issue. However, after seeing the super-reinforced mounting tabs, I was no longer concerned. This might have been a problem w- the older tanks, but no longer.

      We did do a little different strategy with the bolting, though. On two of the tabs where you can't get to the backside of the mounting spot, we doubled up on the self-tapping bolts (2 each). On the other two tabs, we used bolts with nylock nuts and lock-washers.

      The fit was absolutely superb - everything was exactly where it was supposed to be and in accordance with the instructions on the website for the tank install.
