   • High security
   • Great for sidewalk placement
   • One unit parks two bikes

       The Dero Bike Hitch is an attractive and space efficient bike rack.
       The Dero Bike Hitch was specifically designed for sidewalks and
       other narrow space applications. The rack’s design restricts
       bikes to parking parallel with the rack so bikes won’t protrude
       out into the sidewalk or street.

Recommended Base Materials:
 Solid concrete is the best base material for installation. Ask your Dero
 Rack representative which anchor is appropriate for your application to
 ensure the proper anchors are shipped with your rack. Be sure nothing
 is underneath the base material that could be damaged by drilling.                                                                   Drill hole

 3/8” anchors are shipped with the rack. Place the rack in the desired
 location. Use a marker or pencil to outline the holes of the flange onto
 the base material. Drill the holes in accordance with the specifications
 shipped with the anchors. Make sure the holes are at least 6” away
 from any cracks in the base material.
                                                                                     3                                     4

tamper Resistant Fasteners
 The concrete spike is a permanent anchor. The top of the wedge anchor
 can also be pounded sideways after installation so that it cannot be
 removed. Other tamper resistant fasteners are also available for purchase.

 When using the special tamper resistant nuts, always set and first tighten
 the anchors. Once the rack is installed, replace two nuts from the bracket              Breakaway Nut    Stainless Tamper-     Triple-slot Nut
