The clamp and lock mechanism drops down so you can load and unload a ladder only four feet above the ground. It is available with passenger side only, or dual drop downs to carry one or two ladders.

Kargo Master's EZ-LowDown racks offer added safety and are super easy to use. Whether you use a step or extension ladder, either can be hauled with this rack. The rung grips are adjustable to secure various ladder styles and the adjustable clamps secure the ladder to the roof rack.

Kargo Master drop down van ladder racks position the ladder 15 inches lower than competitive models and the cross bars hang low over the van roof top to reduce overall height. The hydraulic-assist, dampener arms, & driver side load retainers are included in each kit.

The installation is easy with the rack feet, as the wide mount feet attach to your cargo vans rain gutters. The superior white powder-coat finish is zinc epoxy primed for extra rust and chip resistance. Backed by a lifetime warranty and made in the USA with unbeatable quality. Make your work life more practical with this rack!
