Tower rack hole spacing on illusion XS towers?

Recommended Posts


Does someone have the official hole spacing for illusion XS towers and are they at an angle too?

They are all 3/8” diameter. I seem to measure 2.75” apart on the bottom and 2.875” on the top?

I’m not sure anyone will know since Metcraft is now out of business.

i measured mine this morning and both the upper and lower measure 2.75”. On mine they are the same because I moved one rack from the upper to lower location when the upper threads stripped out. 

Hope that helps.

Thank you. It's good to have the measurement confirmed. Mine also appeared to be drilled into the tower at an angle...are yours at an angle too?

By the way, for your stripped holes...there are ways to either use a tap and die to recut the existing threads or fill the holes and then use a tap and die set to recut them. It's not too difficult but you will need the correct tap/die for the bolt. I believe it's 3/8 - 16.
