Maybe mine were just the exception to the rule then. I have no doubt they are solid...buuut the fitment was poor and the instructions provided (I know, how hard is it really to just figure it out) were incomplete.
I don't have a workshop or workbench or room for much more than the atv trailer in garage so I installed while on the trailer...if I had a simple vice and some basic space to properly bend them it would've been fine...but I don't have that so I just did a lot of cursing instead.

You're supposed to slide the tubes together, then bolt to frame and foot pegs. This puts tension on the bars to prevent rattles and vibrations.
