Video shows earlier mounting frame but the principal is the same. The latest mount is shared with the basket-rak so basket and box are interchangeable.
Exactly the same box is used by one of our favourite charities - Shelterbox.org as you will see for the accompanying photo. For every box-rak sold we will donate £2.50 to Shelterbox (in addition to our other donations). See www.shelterbox.org
We also do a large aluminium box that fits on the base-rak Shelterboxes in Sumatra
Note - due to their size, boxes cannot be sent to eu countries for our normal rates.
