Contest Brief

I have a Toyota van, with Rhino roof rack.
I have a 4 metre long fiberglass ladder which is hard to attach.
I want a device that attaches to the Rhino rack (It uses standard spring cage nuts like Unistrut)
I want to power the operation of the device with a 12V DC motor
The device must be as low profile as possible - maybe 40mm. Or, it can mount beside the Rhino to give more depth
The device must have a simple and very fast method of attaching the ladder. A rubber strap would be OK.
When I want the ladder, I want to push the button and the ladder slides out sideways and then pivots over and presents to me for removal

If you win the contest, you will provide engineering drawings for manufacture.
