Default Re: Ratty rear safari

Okay, how about a pair of coil springs maybe 5/8” or so in diameter; eight to ten inches long with a fitting at each end for pivoting. Extended, the springs support the open ‘safari. You push in the springs centers to close. Only problem might be the springs in the way when c folded.
Or, tubing with a pivot at each end that slide together when closed. When extended to open, a clip slides into holes to hold it. More than one ‘hole could allow for more that one opening height. Also serve as a ‘lock.
