Compartment Tool Mounting

Strut Storage

When it comes to tool and equipment mounting on heavy rescues or any apparatus for that matter. Two main options are available, off the shelf mounts or custom fabricated mounts.  However, a third option is a blend of custom and off the shelf mounts that you can see in the pictures below with the hand tools.

Airbag Storage

Custom airbag holders are typical installed horizon as scene in the picture below.  However, larger airbags and ground plates can also be built to store the them vertically in an apparatus.  Also consider any future airbags that the truck my have.  It would be a mistake to leave wasted space around airbag compartments that could be used in the future.
