Video Transcript for TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the TorkLift Lock and Load Sidekick. As you can see, we've got it installed in the truck here. It's going to be a generator carrier design for use with 2" by 2" hitches, part number TLA7091.Now the generator carrier is going to have a few benefits to it. One, it allows us to get our generator out of our camper or out of our truck, so we don't have to deal with the gas and oil smells that we typically do. The carrier's been designed specifically to work with what we've got here today. This is the Hondo 2000 series, also with the Yamaha 2024 series.Another thing, we get a lot of security with the carrier.

We're able to strap it right in using the provided brackets and the provided lock, so we know that our generator is going to stay secure to our carrier. One piece of advice, if you don't lock the carrier to your truck using a locking hitch pin or a locking anti-rattle device, somebody could just pull the pin and clip, remove the carrier and the generator at the same time.This carrier's going to be very similar to other cargo carriers, in that when they're just secured with the pin and the clip, you're going to have the side-to-side movement or that up and down movement. Using an anti-rattle devices is going to eliminate that, so you're not going to have the noise or the feeling of that movement inside the cab.Now, if you guys know much about generators, you probably know that a lot of other smaller generators on the market we're modeled after this type and size of generator. Just to give you an idea, inside to inside going this way is going to be about 16", would be the inside edge to the inside edge here. It's going to be about 21-1/4", then from the base of the platform to the top edge of the first one, is going to be about 16-1/2".

The second's about 17-1/4", and the third is about 18-1/2". As long as you've got a generator that falls among those sizes, has a center style handle so it can be secured and something that you would prefer if you're going to be running on the carrier, an offset exhaust, it should work out really well for you with this carrier and your application.The generator's already heavy enough, so we're going to have a complete aluminum construction with the carrier, so we're not adding that much more weight than what we have with just the generator. Something else that I appreciate is that at all four corners, we're going to have a small hole designed in there, so even if we do pick up some moisture that can easily drain away.Something I also like is that we're going to have a tamper resistant lock here. You can see, we don't really have an exposed shackle or anything like that. The core's going to be down here on the bottom.

Overall, it's going to do a good job of keeping our generator secure to our carrier.Now, TorkLift is designed a generator carrier to also work with the Palomino Landing Pad Bumper. That part number is TLA7900. It's a very, very specific application but by turning our carrier, instead of it sitting cross ways, like we've got it here, we can turn the carrier platform to face forward and back. At that point, you're going to add the nylon wheel assembly that comes with the kit and using the landing pad bumper with the space dock adapter, will allow you to rotate this in and out. So again, it's a very specific application, but if you have it, you know what I'm talking about.Something else I like about the Sidekick, is that it allows us to use our generator while it's still loaded up, so we don't have to worry about locking it and unlocking it each time we want to use it.

The one thing you really want to keep in mind is just that your exhaust is not blocked in any way by this arm. That would be the real limiting factor in using this while still on the carrier.You can see overall, it's pretty quiet, but watch what happens when I let go of the lock. Hear that noise and that vibration We're going to show you a trick to get rid of that.Basically what we've done here is just taken a small piece of 3/4" foam, cut it about the diameter of the lock and just placed that in between. That's going to keep that from rattling around, both while we're using our generator and heading down the road.Now by the design of the carrier, if you wanted to carry camping goods or other items around, you could. The space is just going to be limited. I wouldn't use this as my primary cargo carrier. It's designed better and it's going to be better use for use with generators. A hitch mount configuration as we have it here, we have a 200 pound capacity. If you're going to be using it on the Palomino Landing Pad with the space dock, that's going to come down to 150 pounds. So you do want to keep that in mind.If you've got a generator and you need to get it to your camping destination, anything like that, we found this one to be a really, really good option. You'll kind of see that echoed through our customer reviews. We've got several reviews on there and nobody really has anything bad to say about it. Basically talking about its construction, how well it works and how useful it is.There's not a lot to compare this to. This is going to be a pretty specialized kind of an item. The closest thing that we're going to have is going to be the larger lock and load that's designed for the larger generator. If you have a larger generator and a smaller generator, that might be a good choice. You could kind of do both of them. If the smaller generator is what you're after to pack around, I think the Sidekick's going to be the way to go.To secure the Sidekick to our vehicle, we're going to use the provided pin and clip. Now we're ready to get the generator put into position. Place it on our carrier. If you intend on running the generator and leaving it on the carrier, just be sure you can get to your start cable or button.We'll grab our two other pieces, going the slide the tab through the appropriate slot, bring our arm in our other side here, and do the same thing on this side. At that point our lock can go in, be secured. We'll just tighten up our set screw. This allows us to easily get everything in place and then provide a little bit of downward tension just to keep it from moving around.That's going to complete our look at the TorkLift Lock and Load Sidekick, part number TLA901.

16x21 TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray for 2" Hitches - 200 lbs - TLA7901

It’s solidly built and very easy to assemble. However, the tray is too large for this generator. With the generator mounted there is 4” inches of space in front of and in back of it. They provide security bolts on the tray, but the generator doesn’t even cover them. Unscrew 4 nuts and bolts, and you can steal the generator. I’m chaining mine to the bumper. I have no doubt it will hold the generator securely on the road; but the tray is so oversized that if you grab the generator by the bottom and pull it towards you, it will come out if you pull hard enough. It would damage the generator; but what thief cares about a little damage? It seems like Torklift tried to make this carrier a “one size fits many”. For security purposes it needs to be resized to footprint of the generator 678318

everything is great except the lock rattles, a foam stuffing is required. 643207

great product. Preparing a vintage camper for a lady to travel all across the country and this is exactly what we needed for both security and convenience for her! Thanks 268877

As described. Ordered the lock and load side kick, as we had no place to safely carry our honda generator in our Truck camper. The "Lock and Load Side Kick" solved that problem. It is sturdy, holds generator tightly and will not vibrate around. Sturdy heavy duty lock prevents theft. Good quality, solid construction. We mounted a reciever under the bumper of our truck camper, now we can take the generator only when we need to and remove the carrier when not in use. 251953
