Aluminess Swing Arm Spare Tire Stop

After taking out my tail light and not being able to keep the spare tire swing arm open, I came up with this solution.
The upper aluminum bar is 1/8" X 1".
The lower Bar is 1/4" X 1".
The spring clip and nylon bushings are available at hardware stores.
I used a 1 7/8" muffler clamp($1.50), but you can use billet or stainless steel clamps at a much higher price.
I also used stainless hardware, but grade 8 would be better.
