Safety, Rules, and Customer Responsibilities

Ebikes are not recommended for riders under age 18. By purchasing an ebike and/or golf bag carrier, customers agree to assume full responsibility for proper assembly, to ride safely, and to observe all rules on the golf course and/or local neighborhoods and roads. Letting other people ride your ebike is not recommended. Customers agree to be responsible for proper maintenance including but not limited to proper tire air pressure, brake adjustments, and tight bolts. But purchasing an ebike and/or golf bag carrier, customers agree that GolfEbikes, its parent company and owners, and the ebike manufacturers are not responsible in any way for the safe operation and maintenance of the ebike and/or golf bag carrier.

Bag Carrier Instructions

We have divided the Bag Carrier Instructions into two sections:

  1. The first half describes the FUNCTIONALITY, how to “use” the Golf Bag Carrier while playing golf.  It includes videos, hints, and safety cautions.
  2. The second half is the actual INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS describing how to mount the Bag Carrier to your ebike with photo references.

Functionality of the Quick-Attach Golf Bag Carrier

Our Universal Bag Carrier will fit almost any ebike with a rear rack, even those with super tall 29 inch tires.  By “almost” we mean that it will easily mount on any conventional ebike, and most with unusual rear racks.  We haven’t found an ebike yet that we haven’t been able to mount our Carrier to.  If you have questions about whether or not it will fit your ebike, please send us pictures of the bike and especially the rear rack and we will discuss it with you before you purchase a Golf Bag Carrier.   As you read through the Installation Instructions below, you will quickly see if any adaptions will be necessary. 

By “Quick-Attach” we mean that the “Bag Carrier Frame” can be placed onto and removed from the rack mount in  2 or 3 seconds without the need for any pins, bolts, or locking devices. It is held in place by gravity and the patent-pending “Blade-and-Slot” design. The benefit of the quick-attach feature is so you can easily remove the carrier when you want to load, unload, or fold your bike, and when you want to use your ebike for purposes other than golf. This first video shows you how quick and easy it is to attach and remove.

As shown in the video, to remove the Carrier, you will angle the BOTTOM of the Carrier AWAY from the bike about half way so the bottom of the slot brackets can be raised up into the “Lift & Remove Notches,” which allows the top of the slots to be lifted up-and-over the “Pivot Notches” and off of the bracket. 

This combination of movements cannot be accidentally replicated while riding or while using the Carrier as a kick stand which is why it is so solid, and yet easy to remove without any pins or fasteners.  You will notice the “Optional Lock-Out” which can be used by golf courses who rent ebikes since they don’t need to remove the bag carrier.

The rack mount bracket itself is secured to your bike rack with supplied nuts and bolts. Because it is flat, it remains on their rack between golf rounds, so all you have to do is slip the bag carrier onto the blade mounts. The next video takes you through most of the functionality of the Bag Carrier.  These videos were made in our factory in Ohio.

If you have a carry stand bag, its “foot” will fit through the open space at the bottom of the bag carrier frame as shown in this picture.  

Tilting the Bag Into The Kick-Stand Angle

The videos show you how to pivot the bag into the kick-stand angle when you arrive at your shot. With a little practice, with your left hand on the handlebar and your right hand on the top of your bag, you can do this while you are getting off your bike…all in one motion. Just make sure that you pivot the bag carrier ALL THE WAY OUT so the carrier and your bike have plenty of “lean” which will safely lock it to the ground…even on steep slopes.  If on a side-slope, just orient  your bike up-hill or down-hill rather than side-hill. 

When you get back on your bike, the bag and carrier will automatically pivot back to vertical as you stand your bike upright. As a matter of habit, place your right hand against the top of your bag as you move your bike upright so the bag doesn’t “slam” against the rubber bumper. This is especially important if your bag is heavy or if you have a light-duty bolt-on rear rack on your ebike.

Parking on a Side Hill – If parking on a slope, it is best to park with your front tire aimed uphill so the bag carrier is essentially even with the tires.  If the bag carrier is above or below the tires on a side-hill, it is less stable.

Loading your bag into the Carrier – It is easiest to attach the Bag Carrier Frame to the rack bracket empty…without your golf bag strapped to it.  So, step one is to attach the Bag Carrier to the bracket.  Step two, with your bike leaning on the Bag Carrier in the kick-stand position, load and strap in your bag.  We do NOT recommend trying to strap your bag to the Carrier with the bike on its own kick stand which is not as stable as using the Carrier as the kick stand.

Cutting the Straps – If the straps are longer than they need to be, and if you will likely never use a larger bag, you can cut the straps off with about 3 inches (8cm) extending beyond the buckles.  You can cut them with a sharp knife or razor blade or scissors, and then melt the edges with a match, lighter, or candle.

Pedal Assist and Gear Recommendations – The easiest way to take off is to use the throttle to get going, then start pedaling. Most ebikes require you to be in at least PAS-1 for the throttle to work. We recommend that you get used to your ebike in PAS-1 and Gear 2 or 3, then increase the PAS and gears when you are comfortable with your bike.

CAUTION: Never start off with your left foot on the ground in front of the the Bag Carrier which can run into your heel and cause injury as you take off 

If you let anyone ride your bike, be sure to tell them to put their left foot on the pedal before they take off.

HILLS – As you are approaching a hill, you can “get a run at it” with the throttle.  Our GolfEbikes have an independent throttle, so you can just add throttle at any time.  Many other ebikes limit their throttle to the PAS setting, so if you want to “get a run at it” you need to go to the highest PAS setting to get full power from the throttle, whether you are pedaling or not.  You can then shift-down with the gears as needed to get up the hill.  Note that a “pedal assist” ebike is not meant to be powerful enough to use only throttle on steep hills.  Depending on the steepness, you will likely need to also use your legs.

Do not shift gears while only using the throttle or at a stop. You MUST be rotating the pedals as you shift gears. For instance, do not shift gears while you are stopped, and then take off which can cause the chain to “jump” the sprockets. All ebikes with derailleurs are  designed to shft up and down WHILE PEDALING.

Therefore, if you park at the bottom of a hill or on an uphill slope and know you are going to need a low gear to take off, gear down as you approach the parking spot so your bike is ready to start out in low gear when you get back on. With practice, you will discover your own preferences. If you are new to biking, you can learn the basics of how to shift gears by searching, “How to shift ebike gears” on YouTube. 

POWDER COATED TEXTURED FINISH –The Divnick Golf Bag Carrier is made out of rugged 5052 aluminum and is powder coated with a durable textured finish that can withstand a lot of impact and wear. Of course, where the “slot-and-blade” hinge moves, it will wear through the powder coating and reveal bare aluminum. This is normal wear.

SAFETY – Always ride safely, especially when riding around corners on wet pavement, crossing bridges, traversing steep hills, riding over loose gravel, or the edges of cart paths. Since ebikes on golf courses are a new initiative, we all want to work together to be safe and make sure the golf courses don’t have any reasons to restrict ebikes.

CAUTION – CAUTION – CAUTION

The most common riding mistake is when you ride onto or off the RIGHT edge of a raised cart path causing the bottom of the Bag Carrier to hit the pavement. When riding onto or off the right side of a raised path, do it at right-angles. NEVER allow the bottom of the Bag Carrier to hit anything solid such as the paved path, curb, rock, root, or post.

Installation Instructions Start Here

Parts List and Names

We are starting out with a photo of the “Universal Kit” parts and their names which we reference throughout the rest of this Instruction page.  If you have any questions about the parts, please refer to them by these names. 

Buckles and Straps

Note: Some of the videos and photos show small ropes to secure the bag to the Carrier Frame which we used in the beginning. But we now provide cam buckles and straps that work the same as on a golf cart.

The Bag Carrier will hold all average size golf bags, at least the dozens of models we have tested.  We do not recommend staff bags or bags with large-diameter bottoms.  Ideally, you will want a bag that fits all the way to the back of the Carrier frame…and most do.  For practical reasons, we recommend “going light” with a carry bag that isn’t loaded down with dozens of balls.

Some customers add a folded towel or other cushion between the legs of their carry bag and the Carrier frame to prevent rattling and any possible scratching of the legs of their bag.

If you prefer ropes, synch-belts, shock-cords, bungees or other methods of securing your bag to the Carrier, we have include slots and holes to make any method easy. 

In the top-left picture below, notice that there are 3 strap slots with holes in the center of slots 1 and 2. Assuming you are mounting the carrier on the left side of your bike (recommended), attach the cam buckles in the holes in the 1-slot in the top and bottom wings on the right side of the carrier.  If you mount on the right side (not recommended), you can affix the buckles on the left side of the Carrier.

Attach the buckle with the logo in the top position.

The straps are long enough for most bags, even large bags.  But if your bag has a stiff pocket right where the top strap is located as in this photo illustration of a Ping bag, let us know before you order so we can include a longer strap. 

Floor Plate  Installation

The Floor Plate has 2 tabs that fit into 2 slots in the back of the Bag Carrier Frame, and is secured with 2 nuts and bolts as shown.

Be sure to force the tabs in the Floor Plate fully into the slots in the Carrier Frame, and tighten the bolts so that the tabs stay fully-engaged in the slots. The slots may be a little tight because of the powder coating, but you can force the tabs in. 

GolfEbike Instructions

IF YOU PURCHASED OUR GOLFEBIKE, you do not need to read or use any of the remaining instructions on this page which only apply to the Universal-Fit Bag Carrier.  

If you are installing on a different ebike, please continue to follow the Instructions on the rest of this page.

Mudguard Installation for Front Fenders

A Mudguard is not needed on our GolfEbikes because they have an extra long front fender already designed to catch the wet grass. 

The instructions below describe how to install the mudguard under a traditional fender brace as seen in these pictures.  Note:  These work on most FULL fenders, although there might be some odd designs out there that require some modification.  They do not work on SHORT fenders which usually do not have a brace as shown in these pictures.  If you want to install it on a short fender, you will need to attach it using short screws and nuts or rivets that you get from a hardware store and drill holes in the lower corners of the fender with matching holes in the mudguard. But do not do this if the fender isn’t long enough to allow the mudguard to “hang” away from the tire.  Otherwise, the tire will catch it and turn it under the fender.  That is why we recommend it for “full” front fenders.

Most ebikes use this same type of 2-hole fender brace system, although the materials will vary.  If yours doesn’t fit our hole pattern, you can easily drill or punch new holes in the rubber. In fact, you can trim this rubber with a pair of scissors if you want it to be shorter or narrower or have rounded corners. Some customers have not used the fender brace and drilled new holes in the bottom corners of their fender and attached the mudguard with their own screws or rivets.  This allows the mudguard to hang lower, and they can easily remove it if they want to do a different type of riding.

The instructions below refer to the numbered illustrations in this picture.

1 – Place a felt-tip mark on either side of the bracket to help you identify the center of the brace after you affix the mudguard. Then unscrew the 2 Phillips screws. Notice the orientation of the threaded female piece on the inside of the fender. The rounded inside edge of the holes goes against the inside of the fender.

2 – This picture shows the brace (in this case heavy wire), the rubber mudguard, the bracket-clamp piece with 2 Phillips screws, and the threaded female piece that is on the inside of the fender.

3 – Lay the mudguard and fender brace on a table or floor. Place the clamp-bracket with screws over the brace and holes, inserting the screws through the mudguard.

4 – Pick up the assembled mudguard, brace, and bracket, and insert the screws through the holes in the fender. In this picture, you can see the edge of my thumb. My index and middle fingers are holding the brace, clamp-bracket, and screws in place but not visible in this picture. Don’t be concerned about the orientation of the brace at this time. It can be extending in any direction.

5 and 6 – With your fingers holding the brace, clamp-bracket, and screws in place, put the threaded piece over the screws with the rounded screw-entry side against the screws. Holding the threaded piece with your thumb, turn the screws with a Phillip screw driver until the end of the screws are all the way through the threaded piece. Not tight, just all the way through.

7 – The next step is to make sure that the mudguard is straight in line with the fender. The easiest way to do this is to lay it upside down as illustrated in picture 7. You can maneuver the mudguard within the brace to get it straight. Then tighten the Phillips screws.

Now you are ready to install the fender following your bike assembly instructions. When you get the fender on, if by any chance the mudguard isn’t hanging straight, you can loosen the Phillips screws and straighten it. Just be careful not to unscrew them all the way out of the threaded piece.

NOTE: The thickness of the mudguard will squeeze the sides of the fender in a little. Be sure to “center” the fender so the tire does not rub it. Centering can be done by making sure the connection at the top (where the light is attached) is straight, and also by bending the side-braces in or out as necessary.

INSTALLING THE BAG CARRIER

The following instructions are intended as general guidance for all ebikes.  Our universal-fit golf bag carriers are designed to fit all conventional ebike racks using the following steps. Of course, all racks are different, so some adaptation might be required.  Our Bag Carrier parts have a variety of pre-drilled holes that you can use, along with supplied 1/4-20 Phillips head bolts and nuts which use a 7/16″ end wrench or socket. 

On rare occasions,  it might be necessary to drill new holes in our Rack Bracket and Underplate in order to fit around or through the cross bars in your rack.  If your ebike rack and design is unique, feel free to ask us for more specific instructions. Please send us photos of your bike and rack so we can provide the best assistance. sales@golfebikes.com

PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU START THE INSTALLATION

CAUTION: Be sure to lubricate the nut and bolt threads with any kind of oil.

Stainless hardware gets hot from the friction and can “lock up” causing the nut to seize to the bolt. If you don’t have any oil handy, scrape some bar-soap into the full length threads of the bolts. Also, thread the nuts on slowly. Do not use a speed wrench or battery driver.

Where to locate the Rack Bracket on your rack

Generally speaking, you will want to affix the Rack Bracket as far back as possible on your rack so that your golf clubs will not be touching your back as you ride.  You will also want to locate it so that  the Rubber Bumper lines up with a good stopping position described in the next section.  

If your bike has a short rack, you might want to mount the Bag Carrier with part of our Bracket off the end of your rack. Because of the strength of our Rack Bracket, you can have up to 1/3rd of it off the back of the rack.

TEST BEFORE YOU BOLT! AND DEFINITELY BEFORE YOU DRILL!

Before you bolt anything together, you can conduct a test by loosely assembling the parts and placing the assembly on the rack to check alignment and optimum height and lean angle.  If you have clamps, you can clamp it in place and pivot it to check how things line up.  Please read through all of the instructions before bolting anything in place. 

Rubber Bumper Installation

The purpose of the Rubber Bumper is to prevent the Bag Carrier from touching your brake assembly or tire.  It will be attached AFTER everything else is installed, but we are showing it to you now because you need to locate the Rack Bracket on your bike in such a way that the bumper lines up with a good stopping point.  The bumper is attached on the back of the Carrier frame to one of the holes along the left side.  (If you mount the Bag Carrier on the right side of your bike, you will need to drill your own hole for the bumper.)  Select the lowest possible position so that the Bumper comes to rest against the axle or part of the frame around the axle, or against the bike’s kick stand as shown in the photos below. The Bumper doesn’t have to line up exactly with the center of the axle nut…it is OK if the side of the Bumper comes to rest against the side of the axle nut, or any of the framing around the axle, preferably just beyond the axle.  If your bike’s kick stand is strong, you can position the rubber bumper to stop against the kick stand which also allows you to mount the Rack Bracket farther back and lower which is preferred. 

Alternatively, if your bike doesn’t have a good place for the bumper to stop, you can use a tether as shown (not included in the kit).  Any small rope, strap, or paracord will work.  

Two Ways to Affix the Rack Bracket: 

  1. Using our “Under-Clamp”, or
  2. Drilling holes in your  rack

The most secure method to attach the Rack Bracket is to drill holes in your rack and bolt the Bracket directly to it. If your rack has a couple of places where you can drill at least two or three 1/4″ holes through it, you can bolt it without using the “under clamp-piece” shown in the sequence below.  If there is only one place to drill a hole through your rack, you can use that hole plus the Under-Clamp and it will be more secure than using only the Under-Clamp.

We recommend starting off using the “Under-Clamp” to affix the Bracket to your rack.  That will allow you to become comfortable with its position before drilling holes in your rack.  It has pre-drilled holes that match the holes in the Bracket.  The Under-Clamp will span under your rack frame similar to what is shown in these pictures. While the Bracket and Under-Clamp have matching holes, if they don’t work easily with the bar-spacing on your rack, feel free to drill new holes using a 1/4 inch bit.  

NOTE – The Under-Clamp piece is relatively thin so it will fit between the rack’s cross bars and fender.  So it will likely bend as you tighten the bolts.  A little bending is OK.   BUT BE SURE TO USE HOLES THAT ARE AS CLOSE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE CROSS BARS AS POSSIBLE TO MINIMIZE THE BENDING.  The farther the bolts are from the cross bars, the more the Under-Plate will bend. 

Orientation – These photos show what we call an “in-line” orientation where the length of the Under-Clamp is in line with the bike.  But some ebike racks might work better with the Under-Clamp rotated crosswise, or even cut in half, as illustrated in the next section.   

 

Alternate Orientation Options – The accompanying photo shows a rack with 2 inner parallel tubes, and the support cross-bars are tubes that span the entire underside of the rack.  So the Under-Clamp won’t fit “in-line” and the combination of the tubes on top of each other ends up being too thick for the bolts we supply.  Of course, you can purchase longer bolts from a hardware store.  But one customer with this rack simply turned the Under-Clamp sideways, as indicated by the red arrow.  Another customer wanted his Bag Carrier farther back, so he cut his Under-Clamp in half with a hacksaw and use the two halves to straddle the rear cross bar as illustrated in blue.  

If it were me and the rack tubes were large enough, I would use the “drilling” method and drill holes in the rack tubing which eliminates the need for the Under-Clamp, as well as being more secure.  Alternatively, you could even purchase aluminum angle or flat stock from the hardware store and make your own Under-Clamps if ours doesn’t fit your bike.   

The point is, if you your rack isn’t standard, feel free to use your creativity.  And you can always send us pictures and we can suggest a solution.

If your rack curves up in the back, you will need to mount our Rack Bracket in front of the up-curve, or add a “spacer” as illustrated in this picture, so you can mount the Bracket all the way to the back. If you let us know the thickness you will need, and the width of your rack, we will include a piece of wood along with your Carrier. Or you can supply your own spacer which can be wood, composite deck board, oversized nuts, a stack of washers, a piece of aluminum tubing (pictured)…all available at any hardware store.

Attaching the Rack Bracket With the Under-Clamp

It is very helpful if you have someone to hold the Bracket and Under-Plate while you insert the bolts and nuts.  If you don’t have someone to help you, use a clamp as shown to hold the two pieces together while you work with the nuts and bolts. 

Be absolutely sure to lubricate the threads on the bolts so they do not seize up.  We supply 4 bolts and 7/16 nylon nuts.  If they are too long and interfere with your fender, you might need to cut them shorter or get some shorter bolts from the hardware store.

It can be a little difficult getting the nuts started, and holding them while turning the Phillip bolt because there isn’t much room underneath for your fingers.  It can help to put a piece of tape under the socket to hold the nut as shown.  

Tighten the bolts one after another, as tight as possible with the screwdriver, then some more with the wrench to make sure the Under-Clamp is holding tightly.  It should not move, even with an abundance of force on it. 

Drilling Holes and Bolting Directly to the Bike Rack

As noted above, the most secure way to attach the Rack Bracket is to bolt it directly to your bike rack.  This is much easier if your rack has flat cross-bars. But it is also possible if your rack has large enough round bars.   Orient the Rack Bracket so at least 3 holes line up with the perimeter or cross bars  as illustrated in this next photo. The holes in the Rack Bracket are larger than necessary for the 1/4″ bolts which allows for a little variance (adjustment) over the bars.  We recommend drilling holes in your rack with a 1/4″ bit.  Center-punch the tubing so the bit doesn’t “wander” off-center.  Make sure that the Rack Bracket stays firmly against the side of the rack.

If none of the holes in the Rack Bracket line up with your rack tubing in such a way that the Rubber Bumper comes to rest against a solid place near the axle or against the bike’s kick stand, you can drill new holes in the Rack Bracket and/or a new hole in the Carrier Frame for the Rubber Bumper.  Aluminum is easy to drill. 

DO NOT DRILL ANY HOLES UNTIL YOU TEST ALL POSITIONS DESCRIBED IN THE REST OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS.  That is why we recommend using the Under-Clamp first.   

Attaching the Slot Brackets to the Bag Carrier Frame

The Slot Brackets have multiple height-adjustment holes that can match up to the multiple holes in the Bag Carrier Frame at a height so that the bottom of the Carrier Frame is about 4 inches (100 mm) above the ground when in the upright riding/carry position.  (Note: If your bike has shock absorbers in the back, when you ride over a bump they will compress which lowers the bottom of the Bag Carrier closer to the ground.  So you will want to mount it with more clearance.  We suggest starting with 6 inches if you have shocks.)

The rear rack on most ebikes with 20×4 inch tires is about 25 inches above the ground (635 mm). Therefore, the typical placement of the Slot Brackets on the Bag Carrier will be as shown in this next image.   If your rack is higher off the ground, then the Slot Brackets will be placed higher on the Carrier.  In fact, for very tall bikes, you can flip the Slot Brackets over with the slots “up” even higher than the top of the Carrier frame if need be. 

TEST – You can conduct a test before solidly bolting everything together. With your ebike resting on its kick stand, and with the Rack Bracket clamped to your rack (as shown, not bolted yet), place the Slot Brackets onto the Pivot Blades with the slots “down” as shown in the next picture.   

 

(This next step is easier with someone helping you.)  With the bike leaning on its own kick stand and the bottom of the Carrier Frame about 3.5 inches (90 mm) from the ground (which will be about 4 inches [100 mm] when the bike is upright and riding), lay the Bag Carrier Frame against the Slot Brackets and put the bolts through the holes in the Bag Carrier that are nearest-or-slightly-lower to the green-circled holes in the Slot Brackets, and hand-tighten the nuts.  

With the nuts hand-tight, you can test the ground clearance with the bike upright.  If the ground clearance isn’t about 4 inches with the bike upright (not leaning on its kick stand), it is easy to make the height adjustments if necessary.  The holes are 1/2 inch apart.  So, for instance, if you only have 3 inches of ground clearance with the bike in the upright position, you can move the Carrier “up” two sets of holes. 

With the Main Bracket clamped to the  rack, this test also helps you know where to mount the Main Bracket on the Rack (toward the front or toward the back) so the Rubber Bumper will line up against the axle nut or other frame part, as well as lining it up so the holes in the Rack Bracket line up over the rack bars if you want to drill holes into the rack as described above. You can slide it forward or backward and re-clamp it as needed. 

Alternate Method – This method works great if you are by yourself with no one to hold the Carrier in the desired position while you install the bolts.  Place the Slot Brackets hinge-blades on the Rack Bracket (slots down) as shown above. Then with the bike on its own kick stand, place the Bag Carrier Frame on a 4×4 block of wood or a 2×4 on its edge. A 2×4 or 4×4 is actually only 3 1/2 inches wide, but with the bike leaning on its kick stand and the Carrier almost straight up, it raises the bottom of the Bag Carrier about 1/2 inch which results in the desired 4 inch clearance. 

As a practical matter, if you have 4 inches (100 mm) of clearance when you measure from the bottom of the Carrier to pavement or any smooth surface, you will have less than that when you sit on your bike which will squish the tires a little. When riding on the fairway or in the rough, you will have even less clearance to the grass. So about 4 inches is the desired amount when the bike is upright and unloaded, measured to a smooth surface such as pavement. When you go golfing, if you sense that it is too low (or too high), you can always adjust it by relocating the position of the Slot Brackets on the Bag Carrier Frame.

NEVER allow the bottom of the Carrier to hit a curb, paved path edge, rocks, or any obstructions. Pay close attention to the clearance as you ride over the edge of pavement or other obstacles, and be careful while riding around things that are sticking up from the ground.

Orientation of Slot Brackets – As noted above, with most standard installations,  the Slot Brackets will be oriented with the slots “down”.  

If you are installing on a 26 inch or taller bike, or a bike with the battery under the rack which makes the rack higher, you might need to orient the Slot Brackets with the slots at the top as shown in the next picture. (The slots could even be above the top of the Carrier Frame for taller bikes.) 

With the slots “up” you will want to insert the top bolts with the head on the slot-bracket side as shown. This will allow clearance from the main Rack Bracket.  (With the slots “down” you will insert the bolts through the Carrier Frame with the nuts on the back.)

ADJUSTING THE SLOT BRACKETS

When you are satisfied with the height and clearance,  tighten the Slot Brackets to the Bag Carrier with the supplied short bolts and nuts enough to hold their position. Then remove and re-attach the Bag Carrier of and onto the hinge-blades as shown in the Quick-Attach video on this page above.  It it fits on smoothly, then tighten the nuts as tight as you can with a 7/16 inch wrench or socket while holding the head with a screw driver.

If it doesn’t slip off and on easily, there is a little bit of adjusting-tolerance in the bolt holes so that you can move the Slot Brackets in or out a little in order to fit more smoothly on and off the pivot blades.  So if it is a little tight, look closely at the fit to see where it is touching, loosen the nearest bolt, and adjust the Slot Bracket in or out to fit perfectly.  

Attach the Rubber Bumper

With everything bolted together, it is now time to affix the Rubber Bumper to the back of the Bag Carrier Frame using the supplier Phillips head bolt and nylon nut.

Wear Marks – Expect the process of attaching, removing, and pivoting the Carrier in and out of the kick stand orientation to rub some of the powder-coated finish off.  This is normal wear.  

If you have any questions about how our Golf Bag Carrier will fit on your ebike, please send an email with a full view of your bike and close-up pictures of the rack to sales@golfebikes.com

Divnick Golf Bag Carrier – Patent Pending

CAUTION – CAUTION – CAUTION

The most common riding mistake is when you ride onto or off the RIGHT edge of a raised cart path causing the bottom of the Bag Carrier to hit the paved path. When riding onto or off the right side of a raised path, do it at right-angles. NEVER allow the bottom of the Bag Carrier to hit anything solid such as the paved path, curb, rock, root, or post.

Note: Some of the videos and photos show small ropes to secure the bag to the Carrier Frame which we used in the beginning. But we now provide cam buckles and straps that work the same as on a golf cart.

The Bag Carrier will hold all average size golf bags, at least the dozens of models we have tested.  We do not recommend staff bags or bags with large-diameter bottoms.  Ideally, you will want a bag that fits all the way to the back of the Carrier frame…and most do.  For practical reasons, we recommend “going light” with a carry bag that isn’t loaded down with dozens of balls.

Some customers add a folded towel or other cushion between the legs of their carry bag and the Carrier frame to prevent rattling and any possible scratching of the legs of their bag.

The straps are long enough for most bags, even large bags.  But if your bag has a stiff pocket right where the top strap is located as in the photo illustration, let us know before you order so we can include a longer strap. 

If you prefer ropes, synch-belts, shock-cords, bungees or other methods of securing your bag to the Carrier, we have include slots and holes to make any method easy. 

In the top-left picture below, notice that there are 3 strap slots with holes in the center of slots 1 and 2. Assuming you are mounting the carrier on the left side of your bike (recommended), mount the cam buckles in the holes in the 1-slot in the top and bottom wings on the right side of the carrier.  If you mount on the right side (not recommended), you can affix the buckles on the left side of the Carrier.
