Default Kayak/ladder Rack

I posted this in my vendor forum, but figured I show off here (since many don't get over there )

My dad makes custom wood kayaks and made me a surf kayak for my 30th Birthday. So I designed and fabbed up a bracket to take it to the beach.

It mounts in the stake holes in one side of the bed rails. I angled the horizontal supports up slightly to allow easier mounting form the side and also to showcase the kayaks a little more. The gussets were cut on my CNC and I made a few to match the lizard inlay my dad put in the back of the kayak.

So I've been tinkering with the kayak rack and looking for a way to lock the kayak to the brackets... This is what I'm working on...It uses a 4" stroke linear actuator with the switch mounted in the bed next to the tailgate. I can put a pad lock on once its down for added security,though the actuator itself holds everything down pretty nicely

I'm a new RAM owner, not what I started out to get but saw the 2013 copperhead Big Horn, liked the looks, hemi sound awesome, and I opened up the wallet. I have 2000 miles on it, 80% interstate; average 17.3 mpg. Not as good as my Prius, but sooo much fun!
