Anyone try these? I’m interested in ordering them. Would be nice to leave the rain tray Velcro’d in the trunk & have these on hand for quick attachment if get stuck in rain. Saw someone else tried a magnetic option but can’t imagine it would stay put during anything but sitting still.

I used these from Amazon. They work great but honestly, I very rarely put the tray back in.

I went with the magnet setup. Couldn’t find a 1/2" double sided tape disc with enough information to confirm reliability m so I bought 1” wide tape and used a razor knife to cut the tape around each magnet.

The magnets are listed as 4 pounds of pull each, so theoretically should hold a 32 pound rain cover.

This sounds great & ultra convenient in theory....I just wouldn't personally feel comfortable relying on magnets, especially at triple digit velocities.

My rain tray lives in the trunk. If I need to park and it's raining, it'll go in and then come out when I head back out. Can't say with certainty, but the additional airflow while driving should keep the engine from getting wet enough to do any damage.

I'm wondering if these will work, mainly the flange diameter. Any idea what threads we are going into? I don't want to mix the materials too much, don't want galvanic corrosion. They're not cheap but I can probably find them somewhere else that's not mcmaster - they're always expensive.

That's why I figured they would be close to the same size. His are black oxide or something lower grade, which is why his are like half the price of these.

Do you think it would make that much of a difference. My goal was run naked & only throw it on if get caught somewhere I’d need to drive in rain. So will be out more than in (sounds like the story of my life 🤣😂)

I don't think so, I would just buy nice ones because I'm crazy like that. You could get away with anything that holds it on for the day or so.

I went with thumb screws for a brief time based on Goose17’s recommendation but I haven’t had my rain tray installed for nearly a year. My car sees rain and washes quite often and water intrusion is very minimal.
