RotopaX LOX Pack Mount
RotopaX LOX Pack Mount
Good product. I have a top plate from Alt Rider which had holes pre-drilled for RotoPax. This allowed me to bypass mounting the RotoPax circular bracket. Having the lock is nice but someone could probably remove the unit as a whole via the bracket. I included the 1 gallon water and 1 gallon gasoline kit and the extension for mounting on top of each other.

Excellent way to secure fuel and water packs.
Installation of the mount on my tail plate was easy. The quality of the mount is top-notch. I ride on some pretty rough roads so having a secure mount is a priority. The gas and water packs remained secure during my last ride on the backroads/trails of Nevada (see picture).

Worked as advertised on recent trip to Mexico
I used this to lock down a water and fuel RotopaX while on a trip to Mexico, worked as advertised, did not worry about being stolen or tampered with. Very solid and durable. Screws down for a tight fit and locking is straight forward

Hammered this with the 1gal gas can on the K-Trail in OK. No issues.
Did not have the mount last Feb for a Big Bend trip ( lost the can) another guy found it, used the gas and found me down the trail a bit and I got the can back :-). Did a trip in OK , on the 50 miles of rock gardens knowing the gas can was still there was not a issue. Blew a fuel line on the G650X but still had the can to replace what was blowing on the header pipe:-O....the mount rocks.

A must have
This is a must have to know your tank is locked up when you are out of sight. Easy install and easy to remove tank when needed.

The other reviewer points out ways the mount can be removed thus bypassing the security of the lock but good fences make good neighbors. The mount is very solid-feeling aluminum and works fine. It bolts directly to my AltRider luggage rack without the round baseplate for a nice installation. I was happy to find I didn't have to remove the rack to bolt it on. The mechanism rises a bit above the plane of the fuel pack which may create an issue when packing things on top but there aren't any sharp edges so I'm sure I'll be fine. Nice little effective secure mount.

Used on the trails in Newfoundland!
Locked the 1.75 Gal pak down and never let it go. Secure solid mount.

Never ever put the...
Never put the key in your pocket after opening the package. I just about went nuts looking for it, only to find it, in my pocket.
Rotopax has out down themselves with this. The peace of mind knowing that it is locked and your gear won't be stolen by other ATV/UTV/moto people who know how expensive these are...is ALMOST there.
Anyone savy with a philips screwdriver can easily just un-mount the bracket and run off with your stuff. Like the L shape bracket (philips head). I went to Home Depot and used different screws. Metric headed ones (hah, eat that thieves). Also sawed off the screwed and hammered the ends so the nuts won't be able to be loosened.
Now if only the rotopax plastic container caps had locks. I won't need to worry about haters pouring something in the gas / water tanks when I am away from the bike. For example, my ex-brother in law who really has it in for me cause I helped my sister get away from his loser butt.
