Lock and Ride rear Cargo Box

I bought the original lock and ride rear cargo box for my 2009 550XP a couple of years ago and it worked great. About a year ago I bought a 2018 570SP and I thought it fit fine until I got on some bumpy trails with it. It constantly comes off unless I have a bunjee securing it. I have adjusted the lock and ride anchors but nothing seems to work. Has anyone else had this experience?

I have all my boxes mounted with 1/4-20 J-Bolts (down thru the rack hole and hooked on bottom side of rack), Fender washers and Plastic Wing Knobs.

Secure & Easy to remove!

That's where I'd start.... I never liked the idea of the Lock & Ride rubber [email protected] plugs, so I drilled my boxes to match the L&R hole pattern (w/ a 17/64" hole) and used the j-bolts, washers and wings to secure. Note, the j-bolts to impede into the box by about 1.25-1.5", but really not much worse then the L&R clamp handle. And for the security, piece of mind and cost difference.... I can easily live with the bolt leg in the box.

Once you have all the items installed "loosely" in the box.... set it on the rack, dropping the j-bolts into the L&R holes. Then "fish" them around until they "hook" on the rack hole lip and then simply spin the wing knob until "good & hand tight".

I think the J-bolts I purchased from the hardware store (Fleet Farm) were about 3" long. I had to slightly pinch / bend the "J" closed to fit down the L&R hole and the rest is as explained above.

might recommend a star washer between the fender washer and the wing nut to keep them from accidentally backing off.

Not a bad idea, for an added layer of protection & piece of mind. Maybe I've gotten lucky, but I haven't used one and have gotten by with my "Good and Hand Tight" method on the wing knob.... or basically hand tightening it until I physically can't -or- think the knob will break.

Prior to using the knobs, I used Nylock Nuts and a deep well socket and/or a ratchet wrench. The change to the knobs came when our son wanted to have the box on for some rides/uses, but not all.... so I went to the knobs.

Just wanted to follow up and say this worked out great. Easy on and off and very secure. Unfortunately the longest j bolt I was able to find was 2.25 at ace or Home Depot. Fastenal has a $25 minimum on counter purchases. On the look out for a 3 j bolt. Thanks for the great idea.

Very much not a fan of the lock and rides. I have a kimprex rear seat/storage that I mounted by drilling directly through the back rack and through bolting with 6 (3 per side) 3/8" x 3/4" stainless steel bolts, large 3/8" flat washers and lock nuts. Used a piece of thin rubber between the Kimprex and my back rack at each bolt up spot. If you are looking to have the rear seat/storage easily removable then this is not a good option. For me, I have no reason to remove it.


The kimprex has been on for over a year now and ive had zero issues with it or the way it's mounted.
