I am looking to build a modification to my travel skateboard so that I can attach a baggage carrier handle to it with Kipp adjustable handles or something else which is tools free. I like this attachment to not require any changes to the skateboard so it is still useable as a skateboard when I need it to get around. I have considered a few designs which require the skateboard to have slots or something which would hinder its abilities as a skateboard. I think it be best to attach vis the sides since the handles will be larger than the board itself. The skateboard has no tail so it could be positioned for a 45% tilt from the ground when making sharp turns.
My main client requires me to travel a bit and this be a great way to get my gear and luggage around without requiring an entire baggage carrier and skateboard.
This is far beyond any engineering I have ever done.
I need help trying to figure out
- what kind of Adjustable handles I would need
- what kind of clam would grip the sides of the wood skateboard deck
- How to get those clamps
- anything else I am missing/might not get/.
Here are some design drawings and pictures of baggage carriers to help clarify what I am trying to do.
thanks for all your help guys!
