Truck Bed-Mount Design
The ShortCut River Quiver paired with this revolutionary mounting system is a great option for anyone looking to conserve space in their vehicle while still getting to the river faster. Simply split your rod in half and the ShortCut RQ safely stores your rods while maximizing real estate in your vehicle - purpose built to protect your fly rods.
A standard ShortCut is 5’-8” long from tip to tail and will not fit in a 5’ short bed. You can choose to remove the removable nose cone, cut down the aluminum extrusion by 8”, drill new 3/16” diameter holes for the nose cone rivets, and reattach the nose cone. In doing so, however, Riversmith is not liable for any damage caused by this DIY modification
Yes you can, as long asyour pickup bed is 5’-8” or longer. See first question in the FAQs for information on how to modify your Standard 2-Banger ShortCut for beds shorter than 5’-8”.
No, the bed mount system is not designed to attach directly to or through bed liners. They are designed to attach to a cargo rail ordirectlyto the bed panel. Drop-in bed liners create a 1” to 4” gap between the liner and the bed panel resulting in no structure for the fasteners to grab. You can either cut out two areas in the liner for each mount to be placed against the bed panel or remove the liner completely.
The bed mount slot nut for cargo rail attachment is sized to fit 7/16” and ½” deep cargo rails. If your cargo rail is shallower than 7/16” you may need to purchase an alternate slot nut that matches your rail. The thread size for the mount bolts is 3/8”-16.
Yes, the bed mount can attach to your bed panel through your spray in bed liner with the self-tapping screws. You should not, however, ever attach through a drop-in bed liner.
No, the mounting system is designed to hold the weight of the product with rods inside. Do not attach additional accessories or stack objects on top the ShortCut when installed with bed mounts.
