Benefits Of Installing A Dual Gun Holder On Can-am Defender

There are several benefits of installing a dual gun holder on your Can-Am Defender. Let's take a look at some of the most advantageous. 

  • Improved Safety: Properly securing your firearms is of utmost importance, especially when driving on rough, off-road terrains. A dual gun holder is an excellent accessory to make sure your guns remain in a stable and locked position, reducing the risk of accidents and ensuring your safety.

  • Better Organization: Keeping your firearms organized and easily accessible is crucial while hunting, and a dual gun holder can provide a dedicated storage solution, so you can have easy access to your firearms, ammunition, and other accessories.

  • Easy Access: With a dual gun holder, your firearms are readily accessible, allowing you to quickly retrieve them from your off-road vehicle when needed.

  • Optimal Space Utilization: Can-Am Defender dual gun holders are designed to maximize the available space in your Can-am Defender by creating separate gun storage. Outdoor enthusiasts often have additional equipment and gear, so utilizing dedicated gun holder attachments can free up room in your vehicle's interior for whatever else you might need to bring along!

    Let's take a look at how you can install one of our dual gun holders to elevate your hunting experience!

    Kemimoto Durable Vertical Gun Holder For Can-am Defender

    Let's first look at the installation process for our Kemimoto Floor Vertical Gun Holder.

    Step 1: Piece Together The Vertical Mount

    Using the included hardware, piece together the large mount at the desired height. 

    Step 2: Fix The Vertical Bracket To The Swivel Plate

    Using the large bolt we've included, install the vertical bracket to the steel swivel atop the mounting plate.

    Step 3: Insert The Adjustable U Holders And Brackets

    Next, use the included pegs to install the adjustable U holders and brackets. Tighten until completely secure. The sturdy, adjustable straps can be locked into place with a good tug.

    Step 4: Install The Steel Plate To The Vehicle

    The way in which you finish your dual gun holder installation process will depend on whether or not your floor is removable. If it is, you can use the included washers to lock it in from underneath. However, if it is not, you can simply use the included pegs to latch it to the floor from the topside.

    Again, give each peg a few turns until it is firmly locked into place.

    Next, let's take a look at how to install our Kemimoto Popular Gun Holder on a Can-Am Defender. 

    Step 1: Separate Mount From Bar Mount

    Using the included Allen key, unscrew the mount from the bar mount. It should only take a few quarter turns to separate these pieces, and it'll make the installation process much easier. Then, use the smaller Allen key to separate the bar mount itself. 

    Step 2: Install Onto UTV Bars

    Take one of your mounts and the two screws that you removed during the first step of the installation process and install them onto your bar mount. You can choose to install them on either the front or back portion of your Can-Am Defender.

    Step 3: Install U Holder

    Using the larger bolt, you can attach your U Holders to the mounts. Don't tighten your U Holder completely at this time, as you'll want to set your gun in there first to make sure it's aligned and fits properly. Once your gun is in place, you can give the bolts a few more quarter turns to secure them.

    Pro Maintenance Tips For Your Dual Gun Holder

    To ensure optimal performance and longevity of your dual gun holder, it's important to follow maintenance practices. Here are a few of our top maintenance tips:

    • Regular Cleaning: Following a regular cleaning schedule ensures you never have a buildup of dirt, debris, or residue that may accumulate over time. You can use a soft brush or microfiber cloth to gently wipe down the surfaces of the holder, paying extra attention to hinges, locks, and moving parts.

    • Lubrication: Apply a light coat of lubricant to your gun holder's moving parts, such as hinges and locks, to reduce friction and ensure smooth operation at all times.

    • Proper Storage: When you're not using your dual gun holder, store it away in a clean, dry, and secure location. Try and avoid prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures or moisture, as these can affect the integrity of the straps.

    • Keep Fasteners Tight: Over time, your screws and fasteners can loosen due to vibrations and movement. By regularly checking and tightening all the fasteners on your dual gun holder, you can better maintain its stability and prevent any potential accidents.

    Of course, one of the most important things you can do with any of our Kemimoto products is to follow manufacturer guidelines. Refer to the instructions specific to your dual gun holder model, as they'll provide valuable maintenance tips and recommended practices that are tailored to your specific product, so you can enjoy it for years to come.
