Yeah I'll snap a couple close up pictures. But it's very basic and I made it using PVC pipe parts laying around my garage. It's a 1.5" cupling with a hole bored through both sides for a length of 1/2" pipe with a couple 90 degree elbows on the ends. Long bolt through to keep the 1/2" pipe from twisting.
Then some velcro. The hook side on the inside of the bottom half of the large cupling to make for a tighter and insulated fit over the table pole and the loop side of the velcro on the 1/2" pipe to cushion the bikes.
The part wants to spin on the pole when you hang the first bike but once you put the 2nd bike on it stays in place. No need to even tie them down. They wedge in pretty tight.
