  • Small portable barricade?

    I am looking for small barricade made out of ply wood that can fit flat in a trunk of a car. Any one built one yet looking for pics or ideas

  • #2
    ive built small 2'x4' barricades.....but even that might be too big to fit in youre trunk.

    personally if you are looking for inspiration, the Vtac barricades are really good,.....i think what i would do is build the lower 2' -3'of the Vtac barricade so it can fit in your car.

    another option is to get some 2x4' and a work-horse clamps set..........and skin the work horse in some plywood..........this way you can completely break it down so it fits in your trunk as well

      YouTube "6.5 Guys practice barricade", they have a cool set up they made that breaks down. You could make one along the same lines and customize it to fit in your trunk. My buddy just made to fit in a Tacoma truck bed with a tool box and it works great.

          One of the guys at our club build a modified VTac barricaded that hinged about half way up and had removable legs so that he could fit it into the trunk of his car.

              This is what I was thinking. Add a couple hinges then use a lock like gates or restroom stalls have to keep it open. Make the legs how they best work for you and that would be super portable.

                          So someone post up the dimensions and cut list for that barricade already.

                            I've already been drawing it out. Hahaha. I'm thinking 5ft for the high section. 3ft for the middle and 18" for the low end. 12" wide sections. Should work rather nicely.

                              I agree and am totally capable of drawing one up too. I just figured that since some have already done it, why reinvent it?

                                For this morning's project I am making cuts (between sips of coffee) per the 6.5 Guys barricade. It's only 36" wide without the bases so it easily goes in the back of a pickup.

                                http://www.65guys.com/practice-barricades-update/

                                This is after about 90 minutes of work. It's all from scrap. The bases use a 2x6 at 36" in length and I will likely drill a hole to fit a grommet and spike. Not sure what I'm going to do next with it. I have plenty of plywood to make some cut outs.

                                  Been gone for a bit and just saw you all want the dimensions for my barricade. I might have missed a few details but you guys should be able to figure it out from here. Here ya go
                                  Ohh, the sheathing isn't 1/2in think its 3/8.

                                        Jmartin, I think I'll be 100% stealing this design. Do you notice any movement once its fully assembled (from a non-hinged design) or do the hinges keep it pretty tight?

                                          I assume the two 1 x 2 x 8' (cut into 3/4" x 3/4" strips) is for framing up the sheathing? Wouldn't it be easier to buy two 3/4" x 3/4" x 8' moulding?

                                            Here is my version. I added a 1" pipe to mimic a cattle gate. I have the 1" threads on the 52" and 36" boards so I can screw it in and shoot from there.

                                            The plyboard is pretty weak and I could see it getting punched out if someone misses the holes lol

                                              Nice! I like the addition of the pipe.
