How to use Quickpitch / Alu-Cab Rooftent mounting rails

With these nuts and bolts you attach cargo to the mounting rails on the top of the roof tent.

On the top of our Quickpitch or Alu-Cab roof tent we find C-profiles for attaching attachments or securing cargo. When I first looked into it, I was not clear with which nuts and bolts I can combine the rails.

I finally decided to use M8 carriage bolts * and M8 hammerhead screws *. Both variants fit into the rails and can then be fixed in the rails with a self-locking nut or ring nut *.

I recommend using stainless steel hardware. These do not rust, are durable and do not cause ugly rust spots on the roof tent or vehicle.
