Installing the Scabbard takes about 30 seconds after you understand what you have to do to get it on the bike. If you do not have a “quick release”  I would suggest that you purchase one for your bike.

Let us get started:

#1 loosen your quick release and unscrew the axle nut ,  So the bottom of the scabbard bracket will fit easily into the slot as shown on this picture.

#2Tighten down so it is somewhat snug, but not as tight as it will be when we finish.

#3Now we will attach the top of the scabbard to the bike rack.

#4Loosen the wing nut so the bracket fits loosely on the back and will slip easily on to the bike rack.

#5Get it back as far you can and then tighten it.w will go back down to the lower axle and re-tighten the axle making sure your wheel is alined, close Quick release, and that is it,your on your way:)

Your bow is placed in the scabbard “Upside Down and Backwards!”

Safety Note: Make sure bow and scabbard are secured properly- DO NOT forget to close quick release and Velcro grip securely to scabbard. NEVER carry loaded fire arm while riding!!!

    Will it work with a bike that has rear suspension?

    I’m seriously thinking of purchasing a right handed scabbard for my mountain bike to haul my bow. When you package and ship, does that include any instructions with pictures? I’m a very visual oriented person and pictures always help me when I have to assemble things.

      I just ordered mine and love it. It was as easy to install as was described. It may take a few minutes to figure it out but once you do, it takes 30 seconds to take off or put on.
