Xtracycle's SideCar is best used with a deck - this HDPE deck is manufactured in Minnesota from recycled municipal garbage cans. HPDE is what your plastic cutting board is likely made of, and it makes a great deck for the same reasons: it is waterproof, UV proof, resists scratches and dings, and is very strong.
This deck is 1/8" thick and has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. Secure it to your SideCar with the hardware included on the SideCar - If you've lost that hardware, M4 bolts (like the ones used on your water bottle cages) work, just make sure they are at least 15mm long!
Using recycled plastic reduces our ecological impact and keeps perfectly good plastic out of the waste stream. These decks are made outside of Minneapolis, MN by RPI. Check out their awesome process for making new plastic sheets out of old plastic products in this tour.

Place the deck over the Sidecar frame matching the rounded corners on the deck to those on the frame, and with the Xtracycle logo is facing up (or down, you rebel you). Line up the holes in the deck with the riv-nuts in the frame, and insert the screws through the deck into the riv-nuts. Tighten all the screws alternating sides then go out and ride!
