Default Fuel Injection

Tried to install it on an 7A with fuel injection. Won't fit, will need several bends to get over the pump and filter box.

…. We have seen so far, three different height dimensions on this fuel pump
box. The bar clears the lower ones but we now have a few reports of some
having an interference issue. It would be very helpful to us if some of you
guys with fuel injected models could post the height dimension from the floor
to the top of your fuel pump cover. We will immediately build an "Easy Exit Bar"
to accommodate these models. Please do not order if you have this pump
cover on your aircraft until we have this potential problem solved. We are
very sorry if this is causing anyone concern or extra work. Thanks, Allan .

Default Fuel injection measurements

Allan,
I measured my fuel pump/filter "doghouse". This is a per plans RV7A. The doghouse is 2 inches below the fuel selector which is 4 -5/8 inches up from the channel. It is the same width as the fuel selector - 5 inches. I've got some pictures with a ruler laying on it that I'll send to your "info" email address.

I hope this helps. Your product sounds intriguing if it would just fit in my plane!

Default Anti-Splat Aero Easy Exit Bar

A+
Another winner from Allan and his West Coast "Skunkworks".
Fits perfectly. Easiest "add-on" I've ever put on 3TP. Works great. Just gotta figure out a durable finish that will blend into my finished interior.

...Thank you so much as this does help! It appears these dimensions are the
most common and the tallest as well. Thanks again. Allan..

Default Exit Bar

Here's a picture of my Easy Exit Bar installation showing the fuel selector area. I like the fact that it gives me a secure place to stow my tool bag ahead of the main spar and between the pilot and pax's legs.

Having used it after a two hour flight yesterday, it made exiting the plane much easier, and didn't get in the way at all during my flight. I'm 66 and was beginning to dread lifting myself out of my 6A. No problem at all now, and cockpit entry is also easier.

John

Allan -

I guess I'm somewhat of a fan. I have your skid, stiffener, and gust lock. Haven't gotten around to sending the wheels in for the bearing mod, but it's on my list.

Question on this one. Can installing this bar eliminate stepping on the seats? That would be huge for me, with my nice fresh Classic Aero leather seats.

Thanks!

Default Two piece model?

Allan I have a fairly big console with fuel shutoff, fuel gauges, parking brake control etc. Have you thought about a two piece model with a separate bar for each side.
I have plenty of existing bolts in the spar I could attach to on the onboard side in my 6A. May even purchase your existing bar and modify it myself to fit. I think you’ve hit a home run with this accessory.

Default Step on seats

I installed one a few weeks ago. You still have to step on the seats. I just have an old towel that i put down.

….This does not eliminate the need to step on the seats. That would
really be a great product if I could come up with a solution! Thanks, Allan..
