No-Post Parking System

The No-Post parking system has been designed to eliminate the annoying posts that are on the left and right side of a vehicle when positioned on the system’s parking trays.




In a standard 2-Post system, the supporting posts are positioned nearer the vehicle’s doors, which can make it challenging to enter and exit a parked vehicle. See the below picture on the left, notice the bothersome posts by the doors? Notice the picture to the right, and how these posts are eliminated using a No-Post design.
