Built window nets on my 4 seater

I just took a picture of my window net set up I built for my daughters cockpit.
I watched Rhino Mayhem a million times trying to see how Happa had his set up. Since my budget dosent even have room for the rhino I bought standard window nets and mount kits from Summit Racing. I had to build some drop down mounts for the seat belt latch to make up for the nets not being long enough. I wish the nets were wider for the opening but they cover all the areas that her hands could fly out so I didnt have to go a custom size.Turned out pretty well for about 120.00 or so

Looks great. If it protects your daughter, who cares what it looks like anyway!

Very nice work!!! looks good! You can thread the bottom rods and put a bolt on them.




Also the top bar on my slides out and I almost lost it a couple of times. So dont forget to put it back after kicking at the hill or something, also I put a little screw through the netting into the top rode so It doesent slip out.

Those pictures would of been so much easier than pausing my dvd player a bunch of times. Sweet
At first I didnt think I needed any fasteners on the bars to keep them from moving but I ended up drilling holes in the ends for the clips that came with the buckles

All you have to do is ask? I like your side nets they turned out nice. And you have the skills to redo it if you wanted. I have to pay folks I dont have the skills like that.

Two thumbs up to both you guys for thinking about your kids. I can't tell you how many times we have been out and seen kids riding quads without helmets. We have even seen buggies with back seats and no rear cage. Glad to see someone who is thinking ahead.

*****I started out with nothing and thank god I still have most of it left*****

I work construction so the rhino has been something different to play with. Sometimes I wish I just had the money to pay someone but I learned alot in a area that I knew nothing about. I think I am going to find some side work to buy a tube bender. I bought my cage before I knew anything about material, bracing, and the cage connecting to the back frame. Thanks for the kind words.

Hapa,

Does your cage tie into the frame, or is that a seperate bumper? It is hard to tell from the pictures. If it ties into the frame, can you post or pm some pics. I really want my new cage to tie into the frame and would appreciate any ideas.

No my cage does not tie into the frame. I was worried about this after conversing with some guys on this forum. So i asked my builder about this, he told me the Rhino just dosent need it. My frame bolts to the bed with some pretty heavy duty bolts and metal plates. i have rolled it backwards down a hill in Ocotillio wells with four adults in it. i also recently did a pretty fast front flip by myself. My duddy also did a really hard side flip with Rhino Mayhem in it and they totalled the cage. And I am happy to say in all roll overs the cage did its job and saved everyones lives. My cage was totalled in the side rollover with Rhino Mayhem and i had to replace it.

I understand the extra security a frame mounted cage adds, but I dont think you need it for a 1500lb Rhino. That does not go over 65mph, this is my personal exsperience and a long answer to your question. And this is just my 2 cents. Sorry I dont have better pics, I am always deleteing pics to make room for the new jumping action!





Here is just one more so you dont think I drive like a pussy
