Im still on a hunt to get my factory bimini to work with my monster tower. (the bimini is to wide, so i have to undo my tower legs to fit it on) coz suggested modifying it, but thats alot of time and hassle for me. So someone came up with another suggestion: buy some quick release deals ( How about changing out the mounting hardware to allow for quick
connect/disconnect. When you want the bimini set up, disconnect, open,
slide into place, reconnect.)

Do u think this would work?? Another suggestion would be to sell my bimini and buy a monster tower bimini, cause they not cheap! Any other suggestions are welcome!

I would have to see your tower, but I think those connects would work. I have similar mounting hardware for my bimini, but it is mounted to a ZeroFlex tower. The only downside is it can be difficult to line up the slots on the bimini if you don't have someone helping to hold it in place.

I'll see if I can find a pic

Not sure if this would work for your application, but this is how I attached my modified bimini to my tower: http://www.diywake.com/shop/shopexd.asp?id=567
I went from a windshield attachment to a tower attachment.

I would love to attach mine to the tower. I can see how the rear legs might work but not the fromt. Could you please post some pictures?

Here are a couple pics...for what it's worth. I don't have much on my work computer and what I do have I can't edit much. I'll look for more at home tonight. The bimini is in the garage, but the boat is 2 hours away in storage. The bimini has foward and aft straps that fasten to the tower as well.
