How to Connect a Roll Bar

The Roll Bar is a key component to the chassis of your vehicle. It will help to support the rear end of your car when you turn your steering wheel in a tight corner, preventing it from bouncing around on the pavement. A roll bar also helps to protect the driver and passengers in case of a serious crash.

A Roll Bar is a U-shaped section of metal tubing that is welded or bolted to the front or rear floor of your car. It is generally positioned behind the front seats to help protect occupants in case of a roll over accident.

If your car doesn’t have a roll bar, you should look into having one installed. They will provide you with extra safety, while adding to your car’s look!

Installing a roll bar is pretty easy. Most of them come with complete instructions that make it a breeze to get the job done. However, some will require a little bit of DIY work. You should always do a good job of cleaning the rear windows and vacuuming the back seat area before you start installing any kind of bar.

You should consider putting padding wherever the roll bar will contact the occupants’ bodies, including hands and feet. The padding should be thick enough to absorb any shocks that may occur during an accident.

The material used in making a roll bar is important. The most common is drawn over mandrel tubing, but there are other options as well. Chrome-molly steel is a popular choice, as it is lighter than drawn over mandrel and stronger.

In order to weld the tubing, a metal inert gas welding machine is typically used. This welder produces a very clean weld and is more efficient than the typical hammer type of welder.

A good performance exhaust shop will usually have a mandrel bender available to make the necessary tubing cuts. This will save you time and money.

You can use this bender to create the necessary tube lengths and angles for a custom roll bar that will meet your specific needs. If you’re a DIYer, you can often find this type of equipment at a local auto parts store or on Craigslist.

Once the tubing is shaped and sized to your specifications, you can then weld it together. This is a process that can take a few hours to complete, but it’s worth the effort.

Depending on the size of your vehicle, you may need a few different lengths of tubing. If you’re not sure what you need, the Autopower staff will be able to give you a recommendation for what you might need.

Another option to consider is a cage kit. These kits are welded to an Autopower roll bar and can be configured to have multiple mounting points. This can add a lot of stability to your vehicle, especially in racing applications.

You can use this type of kit to build a race-legal 6-point roll cage for your car or truck. This is a great addition to any off-road or drag-racing vehicle that will increase the safety of the driver and passengers.
