Northstar 700 on Hilux double cab

Hi All,
Anyone out there with some advice on fixing down a Northstar 700 demountable without the cleats fixed through the bodywork? Have thought of using some cut down acro props bolted/welded to the chassis which would enable the extensions that protrude to be taken out when demountable not in use. Any cunning plans gratefully appreciated.
Cheers
Rob

You aren't far off with your idea, Northstar owners have been less than impressed with their fitting system and while it works not everyone wants holes in the bodywork after all, belly bars like this (and yours) crop up;
