Default Express L6 72v Upgrade - Rear Cargo Deck Rails

All,

I recently purchased a 2018 72v Express L6. I like that everything was pretty heavy duty straight from the factory, but I do plan to make a few upgrades. Since BGW is very easily searchable (especially directly from Google) I'll try to document my upgrades in individual threads. For whatever reason, I don't get notifications from the BGW site, so if you have questions, email me. My email is bedn0009@ Google's email service.

My first upgrade was to add these rails to the flat cargo deck area under the flip-flop seat. I wanted to have something that would contain my cargo, but was detached from the cart without tools and in a matter of seconds. I think I found a good solution:
  • I used countersunk neodymium magnets which are screwed into the wood and align with the rear handrails to keep it in place. Not countersinking the magnets was intentional - the rear handrails deflect out from 90 degres - the magnets act almost like shims
  • I attached swivel hasps to each inside corner to create a mechanical connection for all 3 pieces
  • If I need to take all 3 of the rails off, it's 15 seconds. I'm sure the magnets will eventually scratch the inside rails, but those are easily touched up.
  • This is made of oak, finished with 3 coats of Waterlox, and the top of the rails is 11" off the deck
  • So far (fingers crossed) it doesn't move at all when I hit bumps - and it doesnt rattle or make noise whatsoever
  • All of the hardware (except the hasps) is stainless steel
  • This cost me about $75 to build

That's it!

Nice work. These work really well for corners on wooden stake bed sides.
